Based on the facts you stated this appears to be a significant exposure case. He will be entitled to medical expenses past and future and pain and suffering damages.The past medical expenses are based on California Supreme Court decisions such as Howell V.Hamilton Meat Co. and its progeny cases. Although media care might have paid only a fraction of the medical bills, still future care cost can be substantial.

Generally chiropractic treatment is OK in soft tissue injury cases. Changing chiropractor or treating doctor must be done with caution. If you have an attorney you should sit and discuss this matter since the treatment, reasonableness and necessity will be an issue if the case goes to trial. Second, certain chiropractors may have a reputation with insurance companies and this must be done with caution. Finally if you are not receiving benefits from treatment you should evaluate if the...
What is your question? Were you stuck in a malfunctioning elevator ? Any injuries?
If you were in a malfunctioning elevator and you were an employee in the building complain to OSHA. I do not see a case for damages without some facts justifying it. Good Luck.
Yes, you can file a Government Tort claim with a request to file a relief for filing a late claim. Generally it will be denied by the County Board of Supervisors. At that time you can file petition with the court attach ing your request for relief you filed as an Exhibit along with a copy of the claim and rejection notice. It is discretionary for the court to grant it,but more likely than not if the reasons for filing a late claim are set forth the court will grant your request. Also...
Although Driver A with blinker on may have caused some confusion,it cannot be considered a legal cause for the Judgment made by Driver B. To prove Driver A to be negligent you need to prove that the actions of A legally caused B's crash.While A might have caused confusion and an annoying situation,it is far from legal causation and cannot be considered negligent.
Your posting is not very clear.It appears that you were in a collision and you were referred to an attorney by an insurance agent. It also appears that there is a cross-complaint filed against you. This is what I can reasonably infer from your post.
If that is the case you need to sit with your attorney and air out these issues. If you cannot agree and if you are dissatisfied you must seek other opinions.
If there is a cross-complaint,if you have insurance that I assume is the case,the...
You should report this incident to your Homeowners insurance right away. If you are liable depends on the foreseeability that such things may happen based on several factors. Also it depends on where the dog is situated with access to children.
The insurance will evaluate if there is liability on the part of the kid's parents for negligent supervision.
I am not sure of definition of "high profile". I am familiar with lawyers such as Tom Mesereau, Mark Geragos and the like. They have represented high profile clients but are around Los Angeles area but have handled cases all over.
I can also assure you that there are really great caliber aggressive attorneys in this forum you can select. It depends on the objective and your own set criteria in hiring the lawyer that fits your needs. You can also contact San Francisco, Alameda and...
Since you are in a situation to defend this matter you need to verify if there was a notice of cancellation and that if you had coverage at the time of the incident.
Hopefully the other parties may not make a claim and if you have no coverage you may have to work out some arrangement.
California Law requires that you file an SR-! with the DMV if the damage exceeds $500.00. That may trigger license suspension issues if you are uninsured. Therefore I suggest you seek legal advice immediately.
Your problem is not likely as to the fault in the accident. Driving on a suspended license is an offense by itself.
With regard to your civil claim, you should be able to get your property damage from the trucking company.You can also assert personal inure claims,if any, so long as your insurance policy was current unless there are any exclusions based on driving on a suspended license that may trigger a Proposition 213 problem.
