You are asking the right questions as you process this. Don't lose sleep about yesterday. The stress and anixiety is certainly high, as this is in the top tier of stressful events. Suing a doctor/hospital is a very difficult but often a necessary decision to make. You need to be certain about...View More
Well, certainly sounds like you have some decisions to make. It seems that it is almost always best to sue where the tortious act/conduct (accident) took place. Of course, this would be Idaho. There is a lot to consider, including convenience to most of the participants and a forum that enables you...View More
Hi, I’ve been looking for a lawyer to take my case, but with no avail. So I’ve been trying to do it on my own, but can’t. I would greatly appreciate knowing where or how I can get help getting compensation for this, if/what letter I can send, or if I have to go to small claims, etc.. Thank... View More
There are few things more frustrating that companies that make promises to their customers, who rely on the promise, then only to find out that it is a lie. "Best Burgers in Town", "World-Famous Pizza", those all make us expect their products to be good--if not the best in town....View More
I was charged with a dui and reckless endangermeant while I was on my prescription medication I didn't have an accident but was swerving on the highway with my daughter in the backseat. I don't remember anything about the incident. I have much more details about the case and that day but... View More
First, and foremost, consider yourself blessed that nothing worse happened and your daughter is alright and safe, as are you. Second, the fact you "don't remember anything about the incident" is troubling. But, it highlights the seriousness of what occurred. The fact that you were...View More
I brought them in organized in a folder. When I tried inquiring about it, they kept saying they would look for them and call me back. They didn’t call back and lied and said I didn’t leave a voicemail when I have record of the call. They mentioned early on if they needed to reprint some of the... View More
Very sorry for your experience. It is not a good feeling to have your records destroyed by those you expect to protect them. Is there a way to obtain these records again? You said that you brought in an organized folder, so I assume that you had copies obtained from another healthcare provider? If...View More
There are a ton of questions that are left unanswered about your situation. However, you probably know that tow trucks do not operate for free, in fact, from from it. Tows from an accident can be expensive. In most cases, the party who is at-fault is going to be ultimately responsible for paying...View More
Without giving away too much information: I was positioned a parking lot positioned east headed south back towards my hometown. I was making a left turn as the collision happened. We got tboned by a car in the passing lane and the blame was unfairly put on me. I received a citation for careless... View More
I am so sorry to hear that you were involved in an automobile accident. You mentioned, "we", so I hope everyone is alright. It is even worse when you get blamed and cited for an accident. First, I can understand the frustration. You must set aside your feeling of being "wronged"...View More
I recently had the excision on my hand to remove it. This would not have been necessary if the doctor would have actually looked at the hand and did some testing. Just glancing at it and determining it was sun damage was negligent, since he knew I was on blood pressure pills which are known to... View More
I am very sorry for your experience. I know it can be frustrating to go through an experience that was difficult and/or could have been prevented. Medical Malpractice cases are tough because they almost always involve a serious injury and/or loss. Plus, in order to have a claim against a medical...View More
My car was hit on the rear passenger side. The crash report says my car was only going 5mph when hit. According to the police report the car following behind the other car stated the lady ran a red light. The insurance company of the other driver said we were at fault because one witness said our...

Yes. You can sue. The fact you can sue does not mean you have strong case. It sounds like there might be some conflicting evidence that needs to be sorted out. The fact you were hit on the passenger's side door might indicate that you were not at-fault because clearly your car was struck....View More
I own neighboring property to a large homeless camp in Washington county oregon. I've been told my property value had deceased 1000's and 1000's of dollars. Would there be a attorney to help me file suit and get paid a percentage of winnings? It's a very high profile piece of property.
I understand your obvious frustration. Clearly, you have lost perceived value of your property due to the conditions of the surrounding property. It could be thousands of dollars. Who to sue? Who is responsible for the loss you feel you have encountered? If you think the City could do more to...View More
use? is a huge homeless camp next door it is private property on tualatin valley highway(worth alot). The property owner recently passed away, the city is doing nothing about it the camp keeps growing and garbage piling up. I have had things stolen from my property and the police wont do anything...

This is a community problem. And, yet, a very personal problem for you because it affects your safety, comfort, and even the investment that you have in your home. At the same time, homelessness is a very sensitive subject. People have to live someplace. The solution has to begin with the city. You...View More
Yes, you can file charges against anyone by contacting the police to make a report. However, making a false report and/or misleading the officer away from what really happened is a crime. In short, you cannot lie about what happened. The officer will ask questions that might make sense of the...View More
Last summer I was rear ended while stopped by a big truck with a solid steel bumper while I was in my 2003 Hyundai. Over the next few months I developed back pain and stiffness, along with sciatica. I started seeing a chiropractor after filing a claim with my insurer (who told me this was... View More
Your insurance company can demand that you submit to a medical examiner for an independent medical examination (IME) per your contract with the insurance company to ensure the that the treatment you receive is medically necessary for injuries related to the accident. If you fail to attend, then you...View More

First, whether a person is insured or even licensed will not play into the determination of fault in terms of negligence. Although it could be a factor in determining degree of fault after it is established. A person who is likely to forgo the responsibilities to the public in getting a license...View More
I appreciate your question. My research of the case, reveals that Rogers v. Saylor, 306 Or. 267 (1988) has not been overruled or negatively treated on appeal, even though it has been cited in 37 subsequent cases.
The case discusses the the limitations on individual or governmental liability...View More
Your question likely poses many more questions. Being refused treatment, if done intentionally, can be much more than just negligent conduct. Also, there are many laws to protect people being denied insurance coverage. You may want to contact the state's insurance commissioner with regard to...View More
Dr refusing treatment and medication due to a missed urine test and discriminated against due to assuming drugs have been involved with no criminal background or past experiences this man will die soon without help
Thank you for the question. I hope that this man will get help soon to prevent a death. It seems like there must be much more to the story raised in the question. Medical doctors swear to an oath to "Primum non nocere" (First, do no harm). First, it has to be established that the doctor...View More
You mentioned that you were "assaulted" at work. You did not mentioned if it was someone in the company, or a third-person. For example, you work at a convenience store and it was robbed and you were assaulted by a customer. You need take the steps available to you through work, but going...View More
I am very sorry this happened to you. Especially this time of the year, with COVID-19 impacting much of our lives. I am going to assume that you were not at-fault in this accident. First the health of you and your child are the most important thing. Fortunately, a well-protected baby can do well in...View More
I was coming up he was coming down the blind curve. Cliff on my side. One lane road. I swerved to avoid hitting him and he never even hit the brakes. My insurance lapses by a few weeks due to covid related financial issues. I have court coming up to contest the traffic ticket they gave me which was... View More
I would add to the previous response a little. You did not say what your ticket was for. If the ticket was related to arguments revolving around why you think the Forest /Park Ranger ("Cop") should pay--then you will need to defend the ticket and prevail on the merits; otherwise, it will...View More
