  • My parked car got hit by A multi terrain loader doing work in street. Is that considered a motor vehicle?

    A bob cat type utility loader struck rear of my car. Is that type considered a motore vehicle . It has no plates but did have vin #.

    Alex’s Answer

    Whether it's a vehicle is a bit irrelevant. Fact is it hit your car and caused damage. If you have comprehensive insurance, they should cover the repairs. The company that owns the loader is also liable for the damages and any injuries. Before pursuing a claim against the company, however, I would consult with a personal injury attorney.

  • Can having another minor car accident effect my prior more serious car accident settlement?

    I had an accident about a year ago where a F150 plowed into me ( in a 93 civic ) going about 50mph while i was stopped with my brakes on. i've been seeing a chiropractor, and have been going through a settlement process which is almost complete. l...

    As others have said, it shouldn't be much of an issue. Let your attorney know about it and DO NOT bring it up to the insurance company. Even if the accident has nothing to do with your injuries/treatment, it will give the insurance company ammo to draw your settlement out and possibly even force you to file a lawsuit.

  • Can I have the lawyer represent me in small claims? Or anyone to talk for me?

    My boyfriend won't give me my stuff back and I'm taking him to small claims.

    Alex’s Answer

    Lawyers are not allowed in small claims court, unless they represent a corporation, which you are not. You could, of course, consult with a lawyer before you go to court if you'd like. Hope this helps!

    I am on probation for 2 years, will it show that a misdomeanor case is pending in mental health court? I need to work soon and I need to know if employer will find out that I went to mental court to flee jail time? Does misdomeanor show now in m...

    Alex’s Answer

    If you went to jail for breaking restraining orders, that will show up on a background check. What actually will show is "Misdemeanor Violation of a No Contact Order" or something of the like. I can't say for sure, but I would imagine that pending charges might not show. When you are applying for your job, the most important thing is that you do not try to hide anything. Pay attention to whether they ask if you have had any "Criminal convictions" or if you have simply had any "Criminal charges." The violations that landed you in jail are convictions, the misdemeanor case pending trial is a charge (but not yet a conviction). Hope this helps.

    how to file for discovery for traffic violations in benton county, washington

    Alex’s Answer

    Go to the District Court clerk. They will likely have forms to help you out when requesting discovery in traffic court. Make sure to go there as quickly as you can, as you only have a limited window to request discovery in traffic court.

  • My car was parked in a driveway and hit. ins co found I was o% at fault. now i'm getting taken to sm claims for $800.

    I have to make a counterclaim. would i have to pay?

    Alex’s Answer

    On the minimal facts you've listed, you should simply be able to go to small claims court and bring some documentation showing that you were not at fault. If you have a police report, that will help. If you're really worried, you may want to talk to a local attorney that covers car accidents. He/she may be able to offer you some more guidance with additional facts.

  • I was in an auto accident and settled with the insc co for 1000 dollars. i signed a paper but still havent received pymt.

    i settled with an insc. co. for a certain amt and signed a requested waiver before i received the money. i still havent received the money and i was wondering if i dont receive it does it make the waiver null and void. i live in louisiana.

    Alex’s Answer

    We need some more details before we can help you. How long ago did you sign the waiver? Have you called the adjustor to make sure he/she received the signed waiver? Have you asked the adjustor when your check is being sent? Sometimes dealings with insurance companies can take a while, but it is very unlikely that they would try to pull one over on you after they agreed to a settlement amount.

    Alex’s Answer

    As the other poster said, your best bet is to consult with a local personal injury attorney. We don't have all the facts of your case, but there will most certainly be some issues that arise. Did you keep the candy that chipped your tooth? Did you receive treatment at the ER? Do you have a receipt to show that you purchased the candy? These are likely some of the questions that any attorney you see will bring up.

    As an aside, the other poster is correct, this wouldn't be a class action suit. If you move forward, it'll just be an individual suit against the candy company.
