I let the investigating officer know that the driver had no insurance, and provided my sons insurance info to them. The prosecutor says there is nothing in the reports about her having no insurance. Now, the prosecutor is saying the statute of limitations has passed, and she will not get a ticket.... Read more »
I'm so sorry for the loss of your son, and for your question remaining open for four weeks. At this point, maybe you could contact an attorney or investigator in Missouri to retrieve the file and review it. With sympathy, good luck
It's terrible what happended to your parents but if the incident happened in Missouri you are way past the statute of limitations. A California attorney would need to advise you on the statute of limitations in California but I suspect it is far shorter than 40 years.
The individual that is at fault for an accident did not have enough insurance (underinsured). This person is not listed as the owner of the vehicle, his wife is, and she is not included on the insurance policy. Can she be sued as the owner? Also, the driver was driving on a suspended license, which... Read more »
In 2017 my family was informed that my sons father had been arrested and allegedly committed suicide while in police custody. He was put in a holding cell and the door was left open because. he was the only inmate in the jail that day. Police said he left the holding cell went into a dark area in... Read more »
Hard to tell without knowing what an autopsy showed or would show. However your son and the immediate family of the son's father would be the people to seek any claim. Best bet is to call the Missouri Civil Liberties Union, ask for the names of any "cooperating attorneys " who work on prison cases.
My husband and I own a farm in Perryville, MO. Our neighboring farmer shot and killed our shepherd dog when it roamed onto his farm and started barking at his cows. He did not alert out farm hands about the problem; instead he shot the dog and never told us. Our farm hands later found the dog dead... Read more »
My husband and I have a civil case against us. My husband was only protecting himself in our home. He was found not guilty of anything criminally. I used everything I had to hire a lawyer to take the criminal case. I need help and can't find it. There was no home owners insurance at the time. It... Read more »
First, if you have homeowners that should cover you and they would get you an attorney for the case. Second, talk to a bankruptcy attorney. Also if the intruder was slain with a weapon there are Second Amendment legal foundations that will sometimes help.
Actually, It was a gun shot wound to the temple. But Thank You for the response. We just find it hard to believe that an officer or emergency personnel did not realize the type of wound.. Even after laying in the hospital for two hours unresponsive before realizing it was a bullet wound is really... Read more »
he was housed with an inmate he should not have been rehoused with due to them having a physical altercation so he was again placed with this inmate in segregation in same cell and his cell mate was a 21 yr. old lifer. Another he should've been in protective custody due to his conviction along with... Read more »
Someone who has been sentenced to life is facing a wrongful death lawsuit. What does happen if he has to compensate the victim's family knowing that he does not have money (beside what is sent to him from family and friends) nor assets?
I'm not quite sure about your question. But if has to do with a class action, state action or a case in the federal multi-district litigation (MDL) you should be able to follow the status if you have the caption of the case.

I don't know that there is such a case as there are certain things the governent can be sued for and others they can't be.This is I believe one of those.But contact a member of the Missouri Trial Lawyers Assn--they give free consultations.
Medical examiner said it was accident so after 58 or 85 days the guy was in jail for murder charges just got released. The stories don't add up and not do the injuries the child had even dfs said there was multiple injuries they discovered on the child and the injury he obtained from this so called... Read more »
If it went to trial, no--the double jeopardy clause prevents retrials. The problem is that the DA's office has to be convinced that having had the case thrown out once it's likely to succeed now. In a criminal case it has to be shown beyond a reasonable doubt that the person charged did it--that's...Read more »
Not as I see it but your lawyer should be consulted. Generally, it would be past the statute of limitations for a new claim, and the release you signed would also release the hospital in all liklihood.
