  • Am I liable for my girlfriends actions. Lets say she drives my car around and injures someone?

    My girlfriend uses my belongings quite often and she keeps getting into trouble. Last time, she got into a car accident that my insurance eventually paid for.

    Manuel’s Answer

    Yes you will be liable for her actions in the future if you keep letting her drive your car. Get a high insurance policy for her and an umbrella for yourself, so you will be protected. Best of luck.

    Car was stopped at red light getting ready to make a right turn and was rear ended, damage was $800 and no attorney due to low impact. See chiropractor 2 times per week since August 12th, 2014. Is mid December too soon to negotiate settlement = ...

    Manuel’s Answer

    In your present situation, you may get a maximum of $4500. You will of course have to reimburse your chiropractor. However, I have seen case like yours getting $15k after litigation. Once, I read of a case where the low impact person received over a million dollars due to the ligation abilities of her attorney. Since you are deciding to do this yourself, you have to make the decision yourself. Best of luck

    Manuel’s Answer

    Hard lenders are just that. You get money for an emergency but n the end you end up paying dearly for it. In my experience it does not happen without you being told of the interest rates and your signature being required on the loan papers. In the future :'nor a lender or a borrower be.." W.S. Best of luck.

  • My child was attacked by an adult on a military base overseas in Seoul and suffered bodily injury. Can I sue the adult in USA?

    My child was attacked while working on a military base by another contractor (my child works as a independent contractor). The incident occurred on base. The adult was not arrested and my child (17 years-old) sustained severe bodily damage which w...

    Manuel’s Answer

    Yes you can sue him in Federal Court because of the military base issue. However, if the attacker is a California resident then you have your choice of venue. Contact a PI lawyer that is familiar with the Federal Courts because once you are on it, things move rather quickly. You should get the police report from the MP's at the military base, if you did not get one, lodge a complaint with the appropriate authorities. Second get your child's medical file and loss wages and give those documents to your lawyer. Make sure that there are plenty of photographs and videos of your son's injuries and convalescence. Best of luck.

    Manuel’s Answer

    You can sue the driver, the registered owner and ultimately look at your UIM policy if you have a higher coverage. Of course, it would be more preferable if you hired an auto accident lawyer. Best of luck.

  • How is abuse to an elderly person legally defined?

    A trustee made attempts to isolate her elderly trustor from contact with select individuals. What is the legal name ascribed to that action and if found to be true, what action or penalty can be lodged against that individual?

    Manuel’s Answer

    You need to provide more facts. Merely speculation as to the Trustee not allowing some selected persons may be pursuant to his Trustor desires. Unless you can prove financial abuse , elderly abuse that cause pain and emotional distress, Your case is very weak. Hire a lawyer to help you discuss these facts. Best of luck.

    Manuel’s Answer

    I believe that the best outcome for your husband is to get treated and recover from his injuries. Unless you can prove that an epidemic has descended upon the LA County jail, I do not believe that an isolated episode will pan out for you. Suing the local government is expensive and your hurdle of proof is very high . Also, you must file a complaint with the City and County of Los Angeles and the LA County Jail within six months of this occurrence. Having said that, some civil rights lawyer or PI layer may take interest in your case. Best of luck.

  • How do I change car accident police report by CHP if they didn't write down what I said?

    I found out a few weeks after the accident that the CHP officer didn't write down some important facts in the police report and made the conclusion that I was at fault. Is there a way to make them change it?

    Manuel’s Answer

    No. The CHP will not change a report. However, if you talk to the Sergeant in charge, he may allow you to add your supplemental statements. Do so under attorney's advise only. Best of luck.
