    Malosack’s Answer

    Yes, you gave your son's friend the same advice any personal injury attorney, including myself, would have given him. In addition to not signing anything, he also should not make any statements to anyone, without first consulting with an attorney. I would suggest that he take your great advice and contact a personal injury attorney ASAP. Hope this helps!

    No, you do NOT have to give them your social security number (and, they do NOT need it to settle your bodily injury claim). This is why you need a lawyer on your side. Consider contacting one for a free consultation.

    Malosack’s Answer

    I'm sorry for your loss. To answer your question, you must file a claim with the local public entity within six months of the incident to preserve your state claims. However, you have 2 years from the date of the incident to file a federal lawsuit under 42 U.S.C. Section 1983. Consider contacting a California civil rights attorney for a free consultation.
