    If you are going to refuse the breathalyzer you should also refuse to do the field sobriety tests. When a police officer asks you to do the field sobriety tests all he is doing is gathering evidence against you so if you do refuse the breathalzyer later he can tell the jury how bad you performed and in his opionion you were under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.

    I hope you feel better real soon. Your situation is not uncommon for many people who suffer from severe injuries caused by a negligent driver. The insurance company will try to take advantage of this situation and may try to settle the case for a fraction of what its worth. The insurance company knows you are without income and have bills to pay. That is when they wave a small amount of money under your nose and try to get you to settle and settle quick. Before you talk settlement you have...

    If you have car insurance you should be fine. Typically and as a general rule, in Ohio a spouse is not responsible for the negligence of the other spouse. Now there may be a few exceptions but I will not go into that here. Your insurance company will not settle with the injured party and pay him or her unless the injured party agrees to sign a release, that releases the responsible party from further liability. If the injured party refuses to sign this agreement then the insurance company...

    In my opinion had the ER just sent you home without refering you to a hand surgeon, then you would have a better argument for malpractice and your damages would be more extensive. I don't see a case against the ER. You need to appeal the health insurance denial right away. Don't delay.

    Sounds like the collection agency is lying to you. Consult with an attorney who knows about the requirements of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. Maybe you have a claim against the collection agency. Good luck.

  6. A friend of mine has been charged with felonious assault with gun specifications..no gun was found, can he still be charged?

    If convicted on the facts alleged, your friend is looking at least a 3 year mandatory gun specification that must be served first prior to the sentence he would receive for the felonious assault. But if she broke into your friend's house, was she charged with any type of Burglary? This fact scenario raises alot of questions and your friend may have had a right to defend himself in his own home. Get a good lawyer and fight this.

    In Ohio most injuries on the job are covered by Worker's Compensation regardless of who caused the injury. Worker's Compensation does not cover pain and suffering. If you can prove that the employer committed an intentional tort against you then you can recover against the employer for the intentional tort pursuant to R.C. 2745.01. Recently, these causes of actions for an employer intentional tort have been routinely thrown out by the courts. Each day it is getting harder and harder for an...

    You need to discuss this case with an attorney. Were the charges filed by the police or by the bully? You may have an action for malicious prosecution.

    Your daughter needs an attorney who practices OMVI law (formerly known as DUI in Ohio) to represent her. The attorney may discover something that will prevent your daughter of being convicted of an OMVI (operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs). This could be huge for her once she enters the real world and starts applying for good paying jobs.

    I don't know much about bullying but I do know that you shouldn't hurt yourself over this. You need to talk to your parents and to the principal of the school and let them know what you are going through. You need to talk it out. You have your whole life ahead of you. In just a few years you will be out of high school and you will probably never ever see these people again. So don't let them get the best of you. Hang in there. Get some help- talk to someone now. Good luck.
