    You should continue calling the police department, and ask to speak with a supervisor. I am sure that will get you some kind of result. Like every other publicly funded office, police departments are overworked and understaffed. Since it isn't an emergency, it is, unfortunately, receiving low priority treatment.

    I would immediately call your local law enforcement agency and report what has been going on. I am not licensed to practice law in the State of Washington, but I would be shocked if these antics did not constitute a crime. They certainy d in new York and Pennsylvania.

  • What Full Liability of co-signing for automobile intails

    My daughter needs a safe car to drive and my husband, myself, and my daughter need to know the legal aspect of my husband and/or myself co-signing for a new or used vehicle to bring down expenses of down payment or interest for her. We know that l...

    Adam’s Answer

    You should tread very carefully here. If you co-sign the loan only, and your name is not on the registration or insurance, you may be insulated practically, but an experienced attorney could still find out about your interest in the vehicle and drag you into a law suit. They will view you as a "deep pocket". Whether you will be responsible or not depends upon the law in Las Vegas. I would recommend calling a personal injury in your jurisdiction; they will likely be able to answer your question quickly.

  • Motorcycle accident

    My son was hit on his motorcycle and has been in the hospital ever since. His helmet split in half which contributed to many of his injuries. I want to sue the driver and helmet company and am wondering how I go about this.

    Adam’s Answer

    You should immediately retain an attorney with experience in both auto accident and product liability cases. In situations such as these, it is not required that you also sue the helmet manufacturer, as the driver of the car that struck your son is responsible for all of his injuries. Under the circumstances of this case, however, it sounds as if a case against the helmet manufacturer should be considered to make sure there is sufficient insurance coverage to fully reimburse him for his substantial damages.

    Adam’s Answer

    I suppose you could attempt to bring some time of action for negligent infliction of emotional distress, but it would be difficult in the context of this case. If I understand you correctly, you are saying that a doctor diagnosed you with cirrhosis, but that subsequent evaluation by a different doctor proved the first doctor wrong before you underwent treatment of any significance for cirrhosis. Even assuming liability exists, your damages make make it cost prohibitive to bring this type of action, as medical malpractice cases require a significan investment of time and resources.

    It is very difficult to answer the "do I have a case" question based on a brief recitation of the facts, especially in the field of medical malpractice. In order to preserve your rights and obtain an informed opinion on your case, you should seek experienced medical malpractice counsel promptly.

  • Collecting insurance money after an accident

    I was hit pulling out of my driveway by my neighbor’s son who has a hummer and always barrels through the neighborhood in it. I had very bad whiplash and have been largely unable to work since (I am a painter). Their insurance will not cover all...

    Adam’s Answer

    If you sustained personal injuries and property damage as a result of someone's negligence, you have the right to seek reimbursement for your damages from that individual through their insurance company. You should consider retaining an attorney immediately to place the insurance company on notice of your claim. A skilled attorney with experience representing individuals injured in auto accidents can often obtain a relatively prompt and fair settlement once your injuries have improved to a point where the case can be valued. In the event an amicable resolution cannot be reached, a lawsuit can be filed, which is the onl way to MAKE an insurance company do anything.

  • Surgery mistake

    I had ACL surgery on my knee that would not heal. On x-ray, they found a foreign body that turned out to be a piece of surgical metal (maybe from a blade?). They took it out and my knee is now healing fine, but I was out of work for almost two a...

    Adam’s Answer

    A previous answer to this question accurately set forth the potential liability of all parties involvd in your surgery, so I will touch on damages in this answer.

    Assuming that some party is negligent (which appears to be the case based on what you have relayed) you are certainly entitled to be compensated for your past and future pain and suffering, lost wages, the cost of additional medical care, and any other economic damages you suffered as a result of the negligent medical care. Your damages, however, will be limited to those sustained as a result of the malpractice. You will not be entitled to receive damages for your recovery from the initial surgery, unless your recovery was delayed as a result of the malpractice.
