  • Do you have any injury lawyers in Oregon

    I fell over I a semi trailer at del monte on September 11, 2013

    Chong’s Answer

    Please review Avvo for PI attorneys who practice in a city where you live or where the injury occurred. Please be advised there are certain deadlines you will need to remember regarding how much time you have in bringinging a persinal injury claim, also known as the statute of limitation. In Washington, the deadline to file a lawsuit is within 3 years after the date of your injury. However, I believe the statute of limitation to bring a claim about a personal injury ocurring in Oregon is two year from the date of your injury. Many PI attorneys will be reluctant to take on a case with 5 months remaining so you should move things very quickly.

  • Is this entrapment

    county officer sat in parking lot of safeway after making a previous stop. noticed a vehicle getting gas and follow her to a public road before making stop.

    Chong’s Answer

    No. It is not an entrapment. Were you cited with a ticket? If so, you could possibly get the tickets dismissed on procedural errors. You should consult with an traffic infraction attorney if there was a ticket issued after the stop.

  • I need a lawyer or legal advice

    I was in a auto accident, however the other party didn't have insurance, I'm wondering what my option are. I believe they may be withholding information. I'm up to my hills in medical bills.

    Chong’s Answer

    Yes, please contact a car accident and injury attorney for a free initial consultation. Your medical bills would be covered under PIP or med pay under your own insurance. If the other driver doesn't have insurance you have couple of options on recovery. First is by utilizing a UM/UIM coverage under your own car insurance if you have purchased such coverage. Second, if you don't have such coverage you can sue the other driver personally. However, if they don't have car insurance coverage, they most like won't have any assets for you to go after. Ultimately, you should hire a car accident and injury attorney to assist you in determining the best course of action going forward.

  • How many times is it recommended to counter back and forth with an insurance company regarding a settlement?

    My statute of limitation expires in Dec. I received a settlement offer from an an insurance company and I countered with a demand letter. They have responded with a higher figure than their initial offer. However, I believe I can get a bit more o...

    Chong’s Answer

    You can make a counter-demand as much as you want. Yes, I've seen instances where the insurance companies will let the statute of limitations pass without making another counter-offer. They will advise when they have reached their top offer. You will need to determine whether their top offer is acceptable or whether you will need to file a lawsuit to obtain a fairer offer. I would advise you to meet with an experienced car accident injury attorney for a free consult to determine whether your demand and they counter-offer is fair for your injuries.

  • Do I need an immigration lawyer?

    My girlfriend who is from the Philippines is coming to the USA on a travel VISA, and we might get married while she is here. If we do, we want to get her neutralization completed, and ensure she can stay here, and begin working in her field.

    Chong’s Answer

    What visa is she coming here? Please be advised her intent is very important here. If she is coming here to get married then there is a proper visa for that if she is coming here only to visit then B-2 visa will be perfectly fine. Hiring an immigration attorney is always advisable since you don't want to mess up her green card petition. As my colleague has indicated in order for her to be naturalized, she must first obtain a green card and must wait 3 years after she receives her green card to be naturalized. Good luck.

    Chong’s Answer

    Sorry to hear about your injury. I believe the insurance company may have sent you a PIP appllication. Please speak to a personal injury attorney before mailing it to veify that it is a PIP application. You should hire an injury attorney if you were injured.

  • WHT should I do

    I got rear ended by kid 16 he fled the scene the police found shortly... the police couldn't find his patents insurance. .. I have full coverage on all my cars except this 1 what would happen if the kids parents don't have insurance my dad has ...

    Chong’s Answer

    You need to speak to a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. You say the car that was rear-ended has no full coverage. Please get a hold of your insurance declaration coverage to determine if you have uninsured/underinsured coverage which will help you go through your own insurance for you/your dad's bodily injury claim. Please also determine if you have personal injury protection or medical pay on your declaration page which will pay for the medicals. Have your dad see a medical provider. Also, if you have collision coverage, you can go through your insurance to repair your car.

    Chong’s Answer

    Sorry to hear about the misfortune. If you were injured go see a doctor and talk to a car accident and injury attorney. If you were not injured open a property damage claim with your insurance company and be sure to give them the other cars license plate number.

  • After an auto accident, should I sign a "release of all claims" form?

    I was rear ended by a semi-truck and clearly not at fault, but the release form states that the claim is "doubtful and disputed" and that they are only settling to avoid litigation. Also that the other party may still come after me for damages. I ...

    Chong’s Answer

    I agree with my colleagues, the language used in these releases are pretty standard. What you shouldn't do is sign it without consulting with an accident and injury attorney. Most will offer free initial consultation. Hope this helps and best of luck moving forward.
