I am a deaf college student and working part time, so I don't have a lot of money. Unfortunately, I let my insurance lapse and I was in an auto accident. I was told I owed the money for the repairs because the police officer ticketed me. I disagre...
It is unfortunate that you let your insurance lapse. Only the state can take your license, but the state will take it if you do not pay the damages. So your best bet is to get it paid. In case you are thinking about it, being caught driving with a suspended license is a worse situation than you are already in.See question

Not double jeopardy but could be something else; maybe collateral estoppel all the way to civil rights violation. Hire a lawyer to help you with it. It is a raw deal and sounds like harassment to me.See question

The Missouri and Pacific railroad is directly behind my house. The rails are 75' away. In December, I was outside on my property doing yard work and a train went by that was unbelievably loud. After numerous MRIs and visits to various doctors it w...
There may be laws that protect trains from claims, but I am not aware of any. If there are none, you can bring a nuisance action against the train company, but you will have to prove the noise was bad enough to cause damage and explain why you didn't take action to protect your hearing (such as stick your fingers in your ears). Generally, noise laud enough to damage your ears permanently will be physically painful at the time. Since the most noise is generated by the engine, which passes by fairly quickly, you are going to have to prove the engine was extremely loud to produce damage that quickly. It will be a tough case to prove.See question
slip and fall injury on pipeline construction
a lot depends on the facts. If your employer does not have workers compensation insurance (which is different from a "plan"), you need to get a lawyer who knows about non-subscriber and ERISA. If the injury was caused by the fault of someone besides your employer, you have a potential third party claim and need an attorney to investigate and file suit. If it is just workers comp, then that is the lawyer you need. Otherwise, you need to talk to a lawyer board certified in personal injury law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, which is the official state board. That lawyer will know what needs to be done.See question

As attorneys, we have a responsibility not to help someone enable violence by advising someone not to testify. We don't know the facts of your situation, but I would not want to be the one to tell you how to get out of testifying only to find out next time he killed you. If he did nothing wrong, then your testimony should not hurt him. If he did, he should be forced to get help or be put away.See question
I had been hit and run crash in 2015 stiil waiting to settle
If a suit has not been filed you may have problems. The limitations period is generally two years against the other driver. But the other driver had a duty to come forward. If you did not identify the other driver until later, there may be an argument that the limitations period did not begin to run until later.
If the driver was never found and you are claiming on your own insurance, the limitations period may be longer, but you need to get a lawsuit filed. The limitation period is not how long you have to settle, but how long you have to file a suit and proceed to move it along.

If you are only talking about property damage, then turn it over to your insurance company and let them hassle the other side. If you were hurt, you should get a lawyer to help you make a claim. It may be that you claim on your own uninsured motorist coverage, which is designed for situations like this.See question

The judge sent a memorandum and recommendation and recommended the motion to dismiss be granted for lack of subject matter jurisdiction although the 12b was barred because the defendant filed an answer and it was untimely
I am guessing you are talking about a federal magistrate judge's decision. The federal courts go by three sets of rules. The Federal Rules of Civil Procedure are the top authority and you can read them on line. Nest are local rules of the particular district, which can be found on the district website. Then there are the court procedures that some individual courts in the district have and you can find them on that court's website. In those rules is the answer to your question. If you are going to continue on, you might as well figure out how to look up things in those rules or you will eventually either do something you are not supposed to do or not do something you are supposed to do.
That said, you have to file the objection and the grounds for it with the district court in the amount of time allowed for objections.. It is a written document.See question
