This isn't a personal injury question as the statute of limitations to sue the other driver has long since past. However because your brain injury continues to limit your ability to work you could investigate whether you can get Social Security Disability. I would look for Attorneys near where...Read more »
Oregon law allows allows a victim of child sexual abuse to bring a lawsuit at any time until the victim turns 40 years old or 5 years after the victim knew or should have known of the causal connection of the injury and the child abuse, whichever is later. You should contact an attorney as soon...Read more »
A 14-yr.-old was struck by a car on the corner by our property in 9/17. We learned of this in August 2019, when we received a letter from a lawyer saying we are partially liable because our hedge was overgrown, and our homeowners insurance should pay. The hedge was overgrown/very tall when we... Read more »
This isn't a legal question. However using common sense would go a long way to prevent such tragedies. You and the surviving members of your family should either get rid of any guns you have in your homes or be a responsible gun owner and get a secure gun safe and store you guns there. If...Read more »
My house is part of a condo HOA and sometimes the kids from the neighboring apartments come over to play with my kids. They will often ride their bikes around the parking lot. But my wife and I are concerned because they do not have helmets. So if they are riding their bikes on the HOA property... Read more »
Premises liability is very complicated. The best thing you can to is to make sure you have good home owner's insurance and high policy limits. Oregon law requires children to wear helmets but it is really up to the parents to enforce this. You are not liable for what children do or the parents...Read more »
I'm unaware of it. The practice should have asked. He can file a complaint with the licensing board but I dont see anything. However he should contact a member of the State of Washington Trial Lawyers Assn/Assn for Justice--they give free consults.
You can certainly contract with any Personal Injury Lawyer on a hourly basis but why would you? It is usually to your advantage to work on a contingency basis. An hourly basis would mean paying the Attorney up front from your own funds to cover their fees and they can drop your case if the money...Read more »
My mother in law filed a PIP claim against my auto insurance, for an accident I had no involvement in from 11/16. It's is a last ditch effort by her lawyer to get money. She is not written on my policy but did live with us at the time. GEICO has left it in limbo for months and it looks like my... Read more »
I don't see how this is a personal injury question. It sounds like you are asking about a criminal charge. Try re-posting this as a criminal law question. To be liable in a personal injury lawsuit the defendant only needs to be found to be negligent in their conduct which caused the injury.
Your uncles should get a personal injury Attorney. Since you say you weren't at fault your uncle's Attorney will likely look to the other driver and their insurance for damages. Similarly an Attorney can represent your two boys against the other driver and their insurance.
I hope your wife is recovering from her injuries. You're asking about her rights. That could depend on additional details. Was the orbital sander defective in any way. From a product liability standpoint, that means: was it defectively manufactured, designed, or did it fail to provide adequate...Read more »
Electrocuted? Then you are dead now if that's what you mean. Probably you got an electric shock. Unless this caused a medical problem where you ended up needing medical treatment this isn't going to be the type of case that most Attorneys could find a way to take economically. So if you did get...Read more »
I don't know what ADP stands for. It's not common lingo for Oregon PI Attorneys. I also don't know what you mean by serving papers on the insurance company? You don't serve papers on an insurance company unless you are suing them for something. Normally you serve the person who caused your...Read more »
We were both living with her friends from work and we got in a fight one day going to work/school and during her day at work she broke up with me and I was immediately rendered homeless. This caused me to have to move to another state and be unable to go to the college. It was past the time limits... Read more »
I have been accused of violating my lease. They say they have me on camera. I have a signed statement from the man who actually committed the offense. I am 80 and in a wheelchair. I cannot take this harassment anymore. It is adversely affecting my health. I have been in Home Forward for 24... Read more »
It is unclear whether this is still in an informal state of resolution or if you are being sued in court. Either way, you likely do indeed need the aid of a landlord-tenant attorney. Simply make an appointment to review everything with a local one and see where you go from there.
Depends, are they a licensed contractor? If they are, then you should be good. If you hired someone else, well, you were not supposed to and you may be on the hook. File a claim with your homeowner's policy and see if they can sort it out.

I don't see a malpractice case nor do I see one any attorney would take. If you want contact a member of the Oregon Assn for Justice that handles malpractice.

Sorry for the abrupt question only had 120 character. Injury happened in dec 2015 and all of the appropriate paperwork that providence gave me was filled out and returned to my employer the very next day as they had set up a appointment with a hand specialist. That bill apparently got paid and I... Read more »
This is why you should have hired an attorney back when you received the notice of the small claims case. You may be able to have the judgment set aside, but seek out a consumer protection attorney (not me) ASAP. Not next week, NOW. Use Google and search to find one. Time is of the essence, and was...Read more »
There were no witnesses to the event and the injury required many stitches but not severe. Dog owners are cooperating and are willing to help financially but with in reason. Dog has never bitten or shown signs of aggression. Many strangers visit property daily. Victim has a history of seeking... Read more »
If this happened in Oregon, it is important that you ask your question ONLY to an Oregon personal injury lawyer. You should not accept any answer from a lawyer who is not a licensed Oregon lawyer. Reason: dog bite laws are very different in each State. I know the answer to your question for New...Read more »
