  • Orthodontist closed without fulfilling contract paid in full! Is this medical abandonment?

    I have 2 children currently with braces on teeth since 2012! We had been hearing since Feb 2015, "they'll be coming off anytime!" The beginning of June 2015, I get a letter in the mail stating the orthodontist is closing in 30 days! They did refun...

    C.’s Answer

    This really isn't a medical malpractice case, but a breach of contract. I've changed the practice area to hopefully garner more answers. Good luck!

  • How do I go about this?

    I was a passenger in a auto accident yesterday. A guy rear ended us on I95 doing about 90 mph. I sustained the most injuries in our vehicle. How do I go about going to the Dr. Being as I have no personal insurance? Also would a eye Dr be covered ...

    C.’s Answer

    If somewhat depends on the extent of your injuries. If you have Medical Payments coverage on your own policy, you can have your medical expenses covered by that. If you have chiropractic issues, most chiropractors will see you on an Assignment of Benefits. You should contact a local attorney who can investigate for you. Good luck!

  • I took a plea that required a maximum 10 year registration period on the sex offender registry in 2004.

    since the plea they have enacted retroactive registration laws and new registration lengths. can I enforce my plea agreement? I would have came off the registry last year having already fulfilled all my requirements of my plea deal.

    C.’s Answer

    No, you cannot. You must comply with the registry requirements that are in effect when you petition the court to terminate your registration requirement (at least that's how these cases are currently being handled). There's an argument to be made that the retroactive application of new statutes that run counter to your plea agreement are unconstitutional, but that argument has fallen on deaf ears in our appellate courts thus far. Whether or not you can petition for removal now will be based on what your original conviction was for. You should contact a local attorney to see if you qualify. Good luck!

    If you hire a lawyer, he or she may be able to get that down to a non-moving violation, depending on the county. You should talk to a lawyer to determine the best course of action. Good luck!

  • Drugged

    Can a person be heavily drugged and without glasses who can barely see be interrogated then sign documents and later be taken to jail or prison? For a crime

    C.’s Answer

    Yes. There is no requirement that you be sober or have sight to be arrested and charged with a crime. Assuming there is probable cause that you committed the offense aside from any confession obtained during your time of impairment, you can still be charged. Your impairment may come into question when it comes to any statement you made, but without more information, we can only speculate. You need to hire a lawyer quickly if you've been charged with a crime. Good luck!

  • Can i get a felony theft charge expunged? the reason it is a felony is because i had 2 prior misdemeanors in tx

    i want to become a pi and i want to sure there is a way for to do so by expunging my record

    C.’s Answer

    Based on the facts as you state them, I don't think you are eligible to expunge your felony conviction, if in fact it was a conviction. I'd it was a dismissed felony or an acquittal, then that may be eligible for expunction. You should contact a local attorney where the felony charge originated to find out for sure good luck!
