Eric Steven Day

Yes, you will have to retain an attorney to file a complaint against the individual driving the other car. However, you will need to get the treatment needed as soon as possible and probably wait until treatment is done in order to know what the value of your case is before filing the Complaint.

Q: I'd like to sue Barack Obama for giving 150 billion dollars of american tax payer dollars to Iran, without consent.

Since there are close to 250-300 million american workers that would bring my share to around 4.2 million dollars. I'd like to be compensated, since this was done without consent. Is there a lawyer who will take my case?

No. If there had been I'm sure it would have been done. There are a number of reasons way too long for me to give you.
