Even though you were at-fault for the accident, you are entitled to get your vehicle fixed. However, you may be precluded from receiving non-economic damages for your pain and suffering if you were injured if you have not been insured within the last 6 months, assuming the accident was in Oregon.
May, 2020: Our neighbor had people visiting, and they were about to leave, and my dog heard them talking loudly and ran outside. We ran outside to get her and this woman told me that my dog had bitten her. She showed me her bite mark, and it was not bleeding; it looked like teeth marks in the skin,... Read more »
She is partially right because the dog could be considered an attractive nuisance for a child who may not appreciate the danger. She, on the other hand, is an adult. Arguably, she trespassed on your property when she should have been aware of the danger and was bitten. If she is requesting...Read more »
I assume your dog was on your property and not your neighbor's property. You won't be able to sue your neighbor unless you could prove your neighbor was somehow negligent or had trespassed. You could sue your neighbor's friend for negligence and trespass. Under trespass theory,...Read more »
I was in an accident were liability was determined to be completely the other drivers fault. Both of us have the same insurance carrier (Progressive). The insurance company forced me to use my own PIP to pay my medical bills. I would have rather not used my own policy (PIP) and filed a third... Read more »
PIP is no-fault. It is a standard operating procedure for your PIP to cover regardless of fault. The policy reason behind this is that people should be able to obtain treatment without having to argue about the fault of the involved drivers, as liability can get...Read more »
To answer this question, further questions need to be asked. State law could affect the answer. If I had to guess, you have personal injury protection, PIP. In addition to policy limits, there is usually 10-15k of PIP depending on whether you live in Oregon or Washington or whatever state you...Read more »
That fact that a dog is chipped, is a piece of evidence for ownership among other potential evidence. For instance, there may be other evidence of ownership, such as a bill of sale, vet bills paid, aka registration etcetera. Obviously, if you come across an animal...Read more »

For a medical malpractice claim, you will need a qualified doctor to be able to testify that your current doctor did not meet the standard of care. It sounds like you are still seeking the services of the doctor whom you claim failed to meet the standard of care. First, I would get him to a good...Read more »
full insurance coverage on it even though it's old. It's still licensed in Oregon under our name. The son-in-law had a head on in it in CA. We don't know who was at fault yet. Are we liable for anything???
They live in CA and their insurance policy is in CA.

So I took my car to another shop to have the repair work done. The first shop charged me a fee for me to take my car out of their shop. I feel this is wrong. I need to know if I have a mall claims case against the first body shop
I would need some follow up information in order to answer this question. Did you have a written or verbal contract with the original body shop? Was there an agreement of a time period to fix your car? Did they do any diagnostic work that was contracted for. What is the body shop's...Read more »

Maybe you should finish the paper work so your dog can live, then go adopt your dog from the humane society or have a friend do so if you cannot afford it. At least if your dog is alive, you have a little time to ask for some charitable donations so you can pay to adopt your dog. Let them know...Read more »
There was no written agreement between us. My credit was bad and she financed him. To my knowledge she hasn't paid the financing and is just trying to be mean. Vet, registration, akc papers are all in my name only. Can she take him?
Since the vet, registration, a.k.c. papers are all in your name, there is evidence she purchased the dog as a gift for you. If you paid her back for the dog then you definitely own the dog, although it sounds like you might have a difficult time proving this, as you stated there was no written...Read more »
I am moving out of my fathers house soon and he has always told me to take my dog with me when I leave. We have not been on good terms lately and now says he will call the police on me if I take my dog. Since I was a child when I bought my dog and am 18 now, he has paid for all of my dogs vet bills... Read more »
If you were to take the dog, you could claim the dog is a gift, as he told you the dog was yours and you have a witness. Since he is your father, there is a stronger presumption that the dog is a gift. However, since your father registered that dog in his name, this could be evidence that he did...Read more »
I have a black German Shepherd and my mom's dog has mated with her without my permission and after me telling her not to let it happen. And now that it has she wants half the litter. Even though my girlfriend and I have been taking care of the mom during and after pregnancy, including pup Is... Read more »
It is your dog and your pups. Owners that allow their dogs to trespass on the dogs of others have no legal claim. You could make a claim for trespass; however, it appears that you have not been harmed by the trespass, as you have stated the pups are worth $600.00 each.
Based upon the facts you have given, I do not believe she would prevail if she were to file a lawsuit and claim half the litter. It is your dog that you cared for while she was pregnant. Her dog trespassed on your dog without your permission. She can make whatever claims she wants, I do not...Read more »
She was repeatedly told to make sure the door was closed, she also never cleaned their water. We've spent almost $2000 between flight changes back from Eurpoe, losing out on our last hotel nights that were already paid for, treats, motion sensor cameras, traps, and a professional pet tracker....

If you paid her for her services and she has assets, such as real property, it might be worth it to sue for breach of contract and negligence and collect damages. If she has no money, it would be a waste of time and money from a business perspective to go after her. There would have to be an...Read more »
If you are a tenant, you might also have a claim under your lease/rental agreement for breach of your agreement to maintain the premises, depending on the contract. The landlord also has a duty under ORS 90 to maintain the premises in a habitable condition. So I would like to know exactly what...Read more »
