The officer that who wrote the report was the same officer that I had a conflict within a past case in 2012 there was nothing kind said to one another and I think that this had something to do with the report being written the way that it was , I don't think it was fair! I have talked to an... Read more »
Often police reports are not admissible at trial. I frequently see police reports that are just plain wrong. I wouldn't worry too much if the report says something you don't like. You're free to call different attorneys if you don't like what the first attorney said.
There are a number of ways to find people for service, but sometimes it is difficult. An experienced injury attorney should have methods to find the defendant. There are a number of internet based "person finders" but these are typically only available to law enforcement or lawyers....Read more »
You need an attorney immediately. Time is critical to your claims. Often casinos have videos of incidents that they don't save unless they're provided with a properly worded "preservation letter." Most lay people cannot do this alone. Without video evidence of your fall on...Read more »
I recovered 4 bodies, the other 4 are missing, presumed dead. I kept the dogs safe until owners could claim them. I have several photos of my flock pre attack, post attack, and of the dogs as well as piles of feathers in our yard. The owner offered no compensation, even when I asked. We... Read more »
Most likely you have a claim for the value of the animals. Indiana likely has a small claims court option for you. I recommend looking into small claims courts in your area. This will be an inexpensive and relatively fast option for you to find some recovery.
My poor baby was taken to the animal shelter while I was away by an ex bf as he was watching her. He had no right to do that. She wasn't abandoned he was mad at me and took her to hurt me. She was chipped. They called my ex husband and never called me. My chip company never emailed me either... Read more »
Yes. There are any number of situations where individuals and the church might have liability for an injury that occurs on church property. Cases of sexual assault are a classic example. Some churches were found labile for some sex assault cases where the churches knowingly placed predators in...Read more »
We all have a duty of "reasonable care." In cases that don't settle, juries ultimately determine what is "reasonable." I don't think it's unreasonable to expect people to shoot shotguns in rural...Read more »
You can always make a claim against someone who hits you with a vehicle. If I'm understanding your question correctly, I think your asking whether the father (and therefor his insurance) might also cover your injuries. The answer is "maybe." You need a lawyer to help you figure...Read more »
My daughters view was obstructed by vehicles parked illegally at intersection. She slowly proceeded into intersection for a clear view to her right. Didn't see vehicle so continued thru and got t-boned by driver heading west. She was heading north and was nearly thru before getting hit. Both... Read more »
Your question is a classic comparative fault question. First, your daughter who was the passenger may have a claim against her sister (collectable from her liability insurance) and the other driver. You should talk with an attorney about her rights.
My son was struck and killed by a commercial truck whose driver's license was suspended in "the 3rd degree". My son was a pedestrian, and granted he was no in a crosswalk. But shouldn't the driver of the truck at least have been issued a citation for driving on a suspended... Read more »

My daughter opened the front door when her friend came over and our dog almost ran out the house. The adult who was dropping off my daughter's friend grabbed the dog's collar to stop her getting out and apparently the dog bit her. The woman left and did not say she was bitten until almost...

I can only answer your question with certainty based on Utah law, but in most states yes, you are strictly liable for the actions of your dog. Strict liability means that regardless of fault by you, or any knowledge that your pet might bite someone, by simply owning a pet you are responsible for...Read more »
My parents own a pool and I would like to teach other children private swim lessons in it. I will carry swim instructor insurance through thimble up to 1,000,000 in coverage and have a legal waiver created by a lawyer that each parent of the child will have to sign. I want to make sure my parents... Read more »
I have a 5-year-old medical bill in collections from a previous injury that is in close proximation [on my body] (but not exact) to this auto injury I just had. Will this show up somehow and affect a possible case? It was in another state that I don't have a policy in or residency in.
You're asking a classic comparative fault question. Yes, you can make a claim for your damages if you feel the other driver was at fault. But a jury may have to decide the answer to that question. The insurer may take the position that because the other driver was in front of you that you...Read more »

It appears your case originates in Georgia and you should ask a GA attorney your question. My response is based on Utah law, but most states do something similar to Utah. I'm also unclear as to the posture (or procedural stance) of your case so I'm making some assumptions in my answer....Read more »
You need an attorney. Insurance companies nearly always contact injured people to gain information about potential claims. That said, their reasons for contacting you aren't necessarily because they intend to pay you anything. Your claim is large enough that there are too many pitfalls of...Read more »

I was in a car on the passenger side waiting to cross the 2 on coming lanes of North bound traffic. There is a traffic light slightly down the road... Read more »
Possibly. A jury would make that determination. States have different comparative fault laws, but most states have a framework that would allow a jury to determine if the driver of the vehicle you were in has fault, or whether the truck has fault. A jury could determine either have fault or one...Read more »
