Peter N. Munsing's answer I'm sorry to hear that you had to go through this. You have a case but.....the problem is that homeowners won't cover intentional acts, and if there is no insurance unless he's worth a lot of money you will get a piece of paper saying you are entitled to money--but he won't be able to pay it. The only plus is that as intentional acts they aren't dischargeable in bankruptcy.
I know that's not at all "justice" but it's like being mugged by a wino--you have a case but after spending...
Peter N. Munsing's answer First you can't force a doctor to treat you. Suggest you look for a clinic and see if there is a health advisor who can tell you about the resources you have. My understanding--and I am not a doctor--is that you will not die. You may have a number of issues but death is not necessarily one of these. If you are a veteran, see if the VA hospital can help you. Then contact a member of the Ohio Assn for Justice who handles elder care issues. Your's may not be eldercare, but the issues you have...
Dimitrios Makridis' answer Typically, a lawsuit is filed where the defendant (1) resides; (2) has a principal place of business; (3) conducted activity giving rise to the claim; or (4) where all or part of the claim took place (i.e. where the accident took place). However, a lawsuit can be filed where a plaintiff resides, IF the lawsuit requires out-of-state service OR the plaintiff has been a resident of that county for at least 90 days.
Rahlita D. Thornton's answer In serious accidents one can pursue several types of damages such as pain and suffering, mental and physical, lost wages and if permanently impaired wages to compensate for those.

Peter N. Munsing's answer You would look it up by the name of the person or business bringing the case, which would be the easiest. If the defendant is a large corporation or the government, there could be thousands of cases. You can try online but best bet would be to stop in at the clerks office.
Matthew Williams' answer As the victim of a crime, he is entitled to restitution for the damage done by the offender. You should get in touch with the prosecutor and provide him or her with proof of the costs. He could also file a civil lawsuit against her. But, a word of warning. Money doesn't magically appear because the court says someone has to pay. If she doesn't have any money to take, he may have a hard time collecting.
Matthew Williams' answer You can be punished by law for beating on anyone. Assault is illegal. How old are these boys? Perhaps the police believe this situation is better handled by parents and teachers than police officers and judges.
Adam Michael Russell's answer Have an attorney to review the waiver. I suspect the waiver recites the inherent danger of riding a motorcycle, etc. But it could be argued that you did not waive any claim for the negligence of the rental agency. If you can prove that the brakes did in fact fail, and that the failure was the proximate cause of your crash and your injuries, then you could have a claim. Speak with an attorney right away.
Matthew S Flemming's answer Luckily, your daughter did not put the car in drive, and from your post there does not seem to be anything further that happened after you got out of your vehicle and put in the cruiser. There is no claim here.
