  • Do I have possible case of medical negligence/malpractice from a wisdom teeth extraction?

    In December 2014, I had my four wisdom teeth extracted. After the surgery, I noticed a numbness/lack of sensation in my lower jaw. I addressed the issue with the oral surgeon. The surgeon stated the feeling will/may return within a whole year. He ...

    Generally medical negligence cases come down to a battle of the experts so ultimately you will need another dentist to testify in court that a mistake was made. Getting a second opinion is the first step if you don't want to pay an expert yet. The dentist you go see may not be willing to go to court for you so if you want to pursue a case in court at some point you'll likely need to hire an expert.

  • Do I have to pay her vet bill? Am I liable??

    My neighbors dogs bark and bark. My dog gets annoyed with them and barks and growls at the fence. We bring our dog in or we tie him up. Last night her dog stuck his nose through a gap in the fence and my dog bit him. Am I liable? She was very angr...

    Justin’s Answer

    It sounds like the other dog caused his own injury. If the neighbor sues you then your homeowner's insurance should defend the lawsuit and pay for any settlement. You will have to pay your deductible, which is why it may be best to wait to see if you get sued.

  • How to clear my driving records?

    I have a CDL class A with Hazmat.I had 2 accident: 1)When driving my personal car somebody hit me because they failed to make a left turn (they got the accident ticket),so it was not at fault / no injuries / no ticket.The accident was on 02/2015...

    Justin’s Answer

    Unfortunately, when an accident report is created it is automatically sent to the DOL and you have no control over that. The personal vehicle accident will stay on your record for 5 years and the commercial vehicle for 10 years. DOL does not keep track of who is at fault, just that an accident happened. These are the state record keeping rules and cannot be avoided so I hate to tell you, but you'll just have to wait out the time period.

    Justin’s Answer

    Even if you are in jail, you still have the right to medical attention. You should contact a personal injury lawyer to discuss your case in more detail since it sounds like this is a very complicated situation.

    Justin’s Answer

    That sounds like it is an internal case number that they won't give you unless you file a lawsuit. I would start with sending a letter to the corporate office. If anyone got sick and went to the doctor/hospital then you should send those bills to them as well.

  • Will I be able to get License back if I make payments on unpaid tickets?

    My driving license was suspended due to $3000 in unpaid tickets from 3 years ago. I got a new job now and can slowly pay off the tickets, however they have already been sent to a collection agency. Do collection agencies offer payment plans like t...

    Justin’s Answer

    If you enter into a payment plan with the collection agencies that handle court fees then they will notify the department of licensing that you have entered a payment plan and then you can reinstate your license. If, however, you fall behind on your payment plans then your license will be re-suspended. Most of the collection agencies won't negotiate the balance much (if any) since they are collecting on behalf of the court and don't have the same authority to negotiate lower amounts that are typical with debts owed to companies.

  • Will I get in trouble with WA if I have a drug test positive for marijuana use while on house arrest?

    After a probation violation in WA, I was sentenced to 300 days house arrest. There were no other conditions written besides that I must serve 300 days, which I am serving through a private home monitoring service in CA (this was approved by the ju...

    Justin’s Answer

    You should review the judgment and sentence you were given by the court. If it isn't clear then you should talk with your attorney and if you are extremely worried about it you could consider asking the court for approval. Many judges in WA don't allow the use of marijuana despite it being legal.

    Justin’s Answer

    I'm very sorry to hear about your loss. Medical malpractice cases ultimately come down to a battle of the experts so you will need to have a doctor who is willing to testify that the treatment was below the medical standard of care.

    Most attorneys will represent your family on a contingency basis meaning that the attorney will only get paid if he/she is successful.

    so how do i talk with attorney to turn myself in and get my wdl back what is the first step...

    Justin’s Answer

    Based on your question I am assuming the officer says you have a DWLS 3rd degree. If so, you need to find out why your license was suspended. You most likely have unpaid tickets. Go to the department of licensing and ask them for your driver's license abstract. This will tell you what outstanding obligations you have. Once you pay the court (or collection agency) that you owe money to then you can get your license re-instated through the DOL. If you are charged with DWLS 3rd you will need to address that criminal charge; the charge does not disappear when you have re-instated your license.
