    car hit pedestrian. The pedestrian got enjured on the head kegs arms. Police came to the scene but driver refuse insurance information. What should I do?

    The driver cannot refuse to give his/her insurance information to the police. Request a copy of the police report--the information (assuming that he/she was insured) should be on there. Hope this helps.

    Malosack’s Answer

    Based on the limited facts you have provided, your son could very well have a case against the school district. You need to contact a personal injury attorney ASAP because, when it comes to suing governmental entities, you must first file a claim within six months of the incident. Hope this helps.

  • How can I find out the policy limits on other persons insurance who was at fault before I start a lawsuit or negotiaton?

    I was in a car accident and other person is at fault. A lawyer told me there is a database We can search for $199.00 to find out the policy limits . Is there such a thing? And can I access said database without an attorney?

    Malosack’s Answer

    There's no database. There are a couple of private companies that perform such searches. And, one of the companies does policy limits searches for as low as $150 (if your date of loss is within a year of your request). However, I'm not sure if they do searches for non-lawyers.

    I hope your daughter is doing better. To answer your question, an attorney in either county is fine. The only reason I would lean towards Los Angeles County is because of convenience (in meeting with the lawyer).
