Not exactly. There is a law that if you were driving without insurance you cannot recover what are called non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering. And if you did not have a license, you may not have had insurance either.
But, even if that is the case, you can still get economic...Read more »
You can always sue, but as an attorney, I would not want to take that sort of case to trial. The fact that you question whose fault it was based on you starting the argument is exactly what the jury would struggle with. My best guess is that even if you win, the jury would award like a $1.
My dad was murdered in lake havasu city, AZ, I live in OR..OR doesnt really help because the crime wasnt committed here, AZ has done very little more than make me feel even more confused, alone, lost, rejected, wrong for needing help/having questions & having absolutely no idea of what i can or...

There probably is, but it would be time consuming to find those few who do. That said, you do not need an Oregon attorney, you need an AZ one that does wrongful death. Just do a Google search for wrongful death attorney in the closest bigger city and then make some calls.
If the other side knows about it, of course it will effect it. For one thing (DUII is not my area of practice) if one is convicted of DUII (which includes drugs and includes riding a bicycle) in an accident, you cannot recover anything in that accident for non-economic damages, i.e. pain and...Read more »

You are getting the run around because you don't have an Attorney representing you. Yes, absolutely your have the right to turn in the middle turn lane and other drivers can only use that lane to start and finish turns, not for direct travel. That's why the guy got the ticket. But nothing I will...Read more »
i would hope that you have car insurance and your insurance company is defending you. The majority of these case will settle at or below your policy limits assuming you have insurance. If the damages were very severe and could exceed your policy limits you could be at risk.

If your daughter is a minor in your custody you have the legal right to commit her for a psychiatric evaluation or to put her in some type of institution that works with problem children. You would have to figure out how to pay for these services. Your health insurance might cover the psychiatric...Read more »
Please get a lawyer to help you even if you just pay for an office visit. This is an area that even the most seasoned lawyers struggle with. The answer to your question depends on what court you are in and what the local practice is for dealing with these types of requests. Typically you refuse...Read more »
The issue is a bit in flux. An Oregon Supreme Court decision a few years ago involving Mt. Hood Meadows said they are not, but I think it is more nuanced than that. Basically, you cannot sign away negligence, so hard to know if that was your issue since you say faulty equipment.
