Q. I was hit by a forest cop on one lane FS road blind curve. Please help, the damage is extensive.
A: Since you were hit by a cop in the state of Oregon, tort claim notice will need to be received by the employer and/or city/county/state attorney of the cop who hit you within 180 days. The hearing for the ticket will be important, as the judge will be determining weather or not you were at fault for the accident. You should prepare for trial. If there is a hearing on the merits regarding liability, I expect this to be binding in relation to any civil case. Be sure to bring photos of the accident scene and vehicle damage and mark these as exhibits for your trial. You may want to hire an attorney to represent you for the ticket.
Q. Injured,had coffee thrown on me.
A: If the facts you state are true and there are no viable defenses, then she would be liable. The next issue is if she is worth suing. Do you have the contact information for the person who threw coffee on you? Is she a homeowner, business owner or do you know if she has insurance? For insurance, claims you would need to allege negligence, as insurance will not pay for intentional torts. Intentional torts are a criminal matter. Usually, restitution in criminal cases only consists of reimbursement for economic harm only and not non-economic damages for pain and suffering or inconvenience. If there is no practical way of collecting from her in a civil case, then a civil case is not worth pursuing from a financial perspective. If she is a homeowner, business owner or otherwise has insurance and she resides in Oregon or Washington or the incident occurred in Oregon or Washington, give us a call: (503) 238-1010
Q. My ex won’t give my dog back the only proof I have that the vet is in my name and I have a bill of sale is that enough
A: Assuming your ex has no evidence to the contrary, it should be enough. Based upon experience, I never underestimate my opponents like they tend to underestimate me. File it in small claims court and ask for injunctive relief for a return of the dog. If you pay an attorney hourly, the rate will likely be far more than the value of the dog. I wish you the best of luck.
