  • What do I do when injured from a purchase at a fast-food restaurant ?

    I broke a crowned tooth on a foreign object in a sandwich.

    Cesar’s Answer

    It is crucial that you file an incident report with the store's manager immediately after the injury occurs. Once the report is made, get a copy of the report and keep the foreign object. After that, you should consult with a personal injury attorney in your area for legal advice/representation.

    Cesar’s Answer

    A person in Texas has two years from the date of incident to file a lawsuit for personal injuries but once a lawsuit is filed, there is no timeframe for when the case has to end. If you are unhappy with the length of time it is taking to end your case, then I suggest setting up a meeting with your attorney to discuss the issues that are taking up time.

    Review your Auto insurance policy to see if you have UM (Uninsured Motorist) coverage. If you do, then provide your insurance with a copy of the Police Report showing the other motorist does not have insurance and the UM policy should take care of the Property Damage and Bodily Injury claims. There might be a deductible for the Property Damage claim.

    Also, if you insurance company says that you do not have UM coverage, then ask for a copy of the denial of UM coverage you signed. If they cannot provide you with a copy of the denial, by law, they have to honor the coverage. If this policy is unavailable to you, you might want to call the Attorney General's office Crime Victim's Compensation Fund Department to see if you qualify for compensation. However, you always have the right to sue the at-fault driver for damages but collecting on those damages will prove difficult without insurance.

    Lastly, you should get your car out of the storage facility as storage fees will accrue rapidly and you have a duty to mitigate your damages. You should contact an attorney in your area for legal advice and representation.

  • When a juvenile runs away are they free from the law when they turn 18?

    A 15 year old girl is on probation in Anderson County Tx. She is sent to a drug rehab center in Dallas. She runs away from the center with the intention of staying gone until she turns 18. Can she still be brought up on charges after she's 18?

    Cesar’s Answer

    Running away is not the answer to getting out of trouble. The law will catch up to her and the terms of her probation will be waiting for her once she is caught.

    • Selected as best answer

    Since this is his first offense, he would most likely be offered a deferred contract which states that he promises to complete a certain number of classes, community service and have no further contact with the move theatre for 6 months (maybe a letter of apology to the store manager) and if he successfully fulfills the terms, then his case will get dismissed. You should consult with a Juvenile Defense Attorney in your area.
