William John Light's answer You need a NorCal attorney. He may have a claim for Elder Abuse, violation of the Unruh Act, assault/battery. He might also have nothing. These disputes are always hard to unravel who is at fault. It is worth exploring.
William John Light's answer You are well past the statute of limitations for something that happened 40 years ago. In California, a medical malpractice lawsuit must be filed no later than three years after the date of injury or one year after the plaintiff discovers, or through the use of reasonable diligence should have discovered, the injury (whichever occurs first). Code of Civil Procedure section 340.5. leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/codes_displaySection.xhtml?lawCode=CCP§ionNum=340.5
Theodore Allan Greene's answer It's difficult to understand your question. What / why are you "releasing uninsured motorist"? I would strongly urge you to get an attorney well versed in personal injury matters (assuming you were injured) because you could do something to jeopardize your case. And the insurance companies love it when someone is NOT represented and they can get away with as little as possible. It's their job to do that.... Good luck to you
William John Light's answer Your question indicates you are in Colorado, while the question was posed in the California forum. In California, what you request is theoretically possible with a protective order. However, the persons whom you authorize to receive the records are involved in this dispute as agents for the defendant, i.e., the insurance adjuster is working on behalf of the defendant and so is any attorney hired on behalf of the defendant. Since those agents are duty bound to the defendant, such a protective...
Manuel Alzamora Juarez's answer Yes, you can sue him but if he and you did not have insurance then you will just be wasting your time. There will not be any recovery. You should talk to the D.A., maybe he can get him off the road. Just as an afterthought, were you living with a relative or by yourself? Best of luck.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer The county animal control shelter is doing its job protecting the entire community, as well as helping your dogs stay alive. They have been given extensive powers in doing so, powers which cannot be overturned without expensive litigation. As a homeless person you first concern should be you; unless you find a suitable home you may not ever see your two dogs again.
William John Light's answer You would have liability if your actions caused or contributed to the conditions that caused the fall. Your employer would be responsible for funding your defense and paying any sums for which you are liable. You do not have grounds for counter suit. Notify your employer of the suit and request that it, or its insurer, appoint defense counsel for you and that it indemnify you for any and all liability.
William John Light's answer Settlement Agreements always contain a provision that settlement is not an admission of fault and that liability is disputed. Do not give anyone any money without a simultaneous signed Release of All Claims.
William John Light's answer No, it's not good evidence. First, it's at least double hearsay. It's hearsay of the person who texted you, and also hearsay of the threat that s/he was repeating. Also, it's not relevant to your vandalism of a stolen car. Having a threat against you is not legal justification for damaging somebody else's car, especially when that car doesn't even belong to the person who threatened you.
If you want to pursue criminal charges against the person who injured you, go to the police and...
