    Based on your question, it sounds like the other driver's injuries exceed your policy limit. For example, the other driver has $80,000.00 in hospital bills but your policy is only $15,000.00. Before the other drive settle's his claim with your insurance company for $15,000.00 he/she wants to make sure that you don't have a stockpile of assets and/or other forms of insurance that could cover the remaining amount of unpaid bills. So his/her insurance company and/or attorney want you to verify...

    They can ask if you if the service animal is required because of a disability. Generally they cannot require you to show documentation. Contact a civil rights attorney to further discuss this matter. You can also get additional information directly from the ADA by calling 800-514-0301.

    Typically Chapter 7 Bankruptcy places an automatic stay on proceedings such as a home foreclosure. However, this is only a temporary hold. You should seek further information from your current attorney in regards to your questions and why a particular strategy is being implemented. He/She should have a much greater understanding of the facts and assist will be able to assist you best.

    If you feel that you are being harassed by someone in this situation, you should save the messages and contact the police. If criminal conduct is occurring, the police should be able to easily identify the harasser. In addition, you can contact an attorney familiar with harassment to assist you.

    If the injury occurred almost a year ago, you need to act right away and contact an employment attorney for advice about workers compensation and disability discrimination. Some statutes of limitations in these situations are short, so talk to someone today. Most attorneys that practice workers compensation and/or discrimination work on a contingency fee basis and will consult with you without any upfront charge.

  6. Does a "No Parking 2AM to 6AM" sign in Los Angeles only need to be posted at the entrance to a block?

    Answered over 3 years ago.

    1. Edward Mclean Lyman III
    1 lawyer answer

    Posting at the entrance block is the requirement under the California Vehicle Code for Street Sweeping signs. This is not necessarily applicable to "No Parking 2am-6am" signs posted by the City of LA. The standard for "No Parking 2AM to 6AM" signs is likely that the sign must be in a place sufficiently legible and visible to be seen by an ordinary observant person. Here are the vehicle and municipal codes I'm referring to: Los Angeles Municipal Code 80.10. SIGNS REQUIRED. No...

    This situation requires a thorough analysis based on facts that are highly specific to your situation only. You'd have to provide a lot more detail about the marks, the services, registration information, etc... You should contact an attorney to determine the merit of the cease and desist letter and assess your risks, etc.

    It's quite possible that the conduct of the officers violated your rights. Were you criminally charged with any wrongdoing? If so, you should contact a criminal defense attorney. As for emotional distress of being forced into a drug test and/or being patted down, the question is what is your damage? Have you gone to a psychiatrist or psychologist? Is the emotional distress severe? How humiliating could you feel in front of a mother whose son is served with search warrants and meanwhile...

    It's best that you immediately contact an employment attorney that has experience in discrimination and retaliation. It's difficult to give an assessment based on the facts you have presented. One would need to know more detail such as how the slip and fall occurred, whether you presented doctors notes excusing you from work due to injury related pain, etc. It's important that you contact an attorney now to determine what types of evidence you may be able to obtain, what causes of action...

    Aside from a worker's compensation claim, you might also have other valid claims. For example, harassment and/or retaliation. You should immediately contact an employment attorney to analyze your facts because statutes of limitations can be short on these claims. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
