    Nadia’s Answer

    There is a provision in Nevada Revised Statutes to serve the Director of the DMV with service of process of a lawsuit, when a driver cannot be found. See NRS 14.070. I also agree with counsel's statement that if you order a copy of the police report (if one was prepared), that the other driver's address should be listed.

    Nadia’s Answer

    You should talk to your lawyer in person about possibly reducing your medical bills even further. You should also discuss with your attorney about his or her fee breakdown pursuant to the representation/fee agreement you would have signed with them. Hopefully, you will be able to amicably work this out with your lawyer. Aside from that, the State Bar of Nevada, has a fee dispute resolution process that you can use. However, it would be better if you would work it out with your lawyer first. Best wishes on your case.

  • Can a school ask me to provide medical records for my trans gender youth?

    They school wants me to provide medical records to prove my child is transgender.

    Nadia’s Answer

    The school can ask you for these records. However, as a parent, it is up to you whether you believe providing these records is in the best interests of your child. If you are still unsure if you are going to provide the records, you could consider speaking to the school, to determine why they believe the records will help them in dealing with your child.

    Nadia’s Answer

    You should immediately contact your insurance company and the insurance company of the at fault driver. In addition to the other important information stated by the other respondents, you should also get your car out of the tow yard immediately, because they will charge you daily for having it there. Let both insurance companies know that is at the tow yard.
