Q: I have a lawyer who gave me a doctor.The doctor referred me to physical therapy and it's extremely painful.

1 Answer | Asked in Personal Injury for Georgia on
Answered on Sep 7, 2017

Having had MUCH physical therapy, it is painful. I agree. But, to get full use of the hand, and range of motion, these methods are needed.

Yes, if you quit therapy, your civil case may be affected.

Keep a daily diary of the pain levels you endured during therapy. Use a 0 to 10 scale, for pain level. That calendar of pain levels may be used later, in court, when you testify.

Video him, as he walks by. Get it with sound, to show the harassment. Then, play it for police. Show dates on video.

Once arrested, and under probation, he can be ordered to not come within certain distance of your property.

Q: My motorcycle was hit while parked. I have a police report and contacted their insurance. What are my options or rights?

3 Answers | Asked in Car Accidents for Pennsylvania on
Answered on Aug 22, 2017

Two options. Settle or sue in small claims court.

If you have insurance, and deductible is not too large, they can pay, and then use their lawyers to collect from the at fault party.

Answered on Aug 22, 2017

This issue needs a local lawyer to assist you. Plus, reading this question, the first thing that comes to an attorney's mind is, "What did you OMIT from this question?"

The fact that she is "keeping" your son from you raises a red flag.

Have you legitimized the child?

Have you been arrested or convicted of crimes?

Who do you live with?

Where do you live, as in a safe place?

Are you addicted to alcohol or drugs?

Q: If there is an accident involving a non-licensed driver, is there fault on one or both sides

1 Answer | Asked in Car Accidents for Georgia on
Answered on Aug 22, 2017

Well, it seems that the cop was trying to do his/her best to HELP the boyfriend, and possibly help you.

If insurance is going to pay for this, then they may NOT if you entrusted your vehicle to an unlicensed driver.

If damages are small, then pay the claim out of pocket without going through insurance. This prevents your rates from being hiked, for making this claim.

Plus, if you use their money, and they later find out the claim was fraudulent, then you could have even...

Q: Minor accident/ with no insurance in California

1 Answer | Asked in Car Accidents for California on
Answered on Aug 22, 2017

If the prosecutor sees that the payment for your insurance was AFTER the time of this accident, all kinds of nasty things will happen.

Let's start with possible insurance fraud. The application forms typically have parts that you have to fill out, or check, and this says that you have not been in any previous accidents within X number of years.

The crime of driving without insurance is another possibility. You could lose your license.

Additionally, since the other...

Q: Can I walk my dog after hours on School grounds During summer months?

1 Answer | Asked in Animal / Dog Law, Personal Injury and Criminal Law for Massachusetts on
Answered on Aug 22, 2017

You forgot to mention whether your dog wore a diaper. The issue for schools is that children play outside (recess) and if poop piles litter the landscape, guess who gets to clean up the kids, once they get poop on them? Don't ask me how they get poop on them, but they will.

If it is a law, or posted, STAY AWAY.
