Legal Answers
Q. What are some legal issues around my being a disabled man who was harassed by a psychologist who misdiagnosed me?
A: This is not legal advice directly aimed at your facts, but more generally. This answer does not constitute the formation of any attorney client relationship, only a signed retainer may affect such agreement.

You may have several options here depending on the admissible evidence/information you posses.

Q. Can an agency in Oregon providing a caregiver to an elderly and/or disabled person legally (as in it's in their contract
A: This answer in no way establishes an attorney-client relationship but is intended as general information. Only a signed and fully executed retainer agreement may effectuate such attorney-client relationship.

A.

Different states vary regarding the issue of signing waivers. Oregon law may vary, so please seek counsel or legal information as appropriate for your specific jurisdiction and court.

In CA, for example, waivers which attempt to “contract-around” negligence (ordinary) may be acceptable, however, it is fervently against CA public policy to have “blanket waivers”—ex: waivers that include GROSS negligence. Notably a higher standard of proof, although this likely defeats any assumption/risk waiver should any egregious conduct occur not reasonably foreseeable and which would not “chill” the encouragement of future participation in such event, among others.

In sum, waivers for negligence may be ok under your laws (seek counsel), however if gross negligence was in play and can be proven as a cause, you may still be able to defeat such waiver. You should seek advice asap as your statute of limitations on any claim may prevent you from bringing such action in the future.

Hope this helps.

Q. Can you kindly recommend me good studies for Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress
A: California Federal Court civil and evidentiary procedures and rules vary depending on the specific jurisdiction and department/Judge assigned.

Because you are pro se, this is not legal advice directly aimed at your facts, but more generally. This answer does not constitute the formation of any attorney client relationship, only a signed retainer may affect such agreement.

First, consider seeking legal counsel for the alleged IIED, as distinguished from NIED. Both are viable claims but each has different burdens of proof you must meet with different elements.

Start with secondary sources like Rutter Guide or Bender Practice Guides on IIED (Procedure (fed rules, evid rules, CACI Jury instructions for IIED) to see what elements are necessary to sufficiently carry your burden of proof.

The secondary and CACIs should cite cases in support or opposition. From there, research on-point cases to your specific facts, addressing any counter arguments which may arise as is your responsibility to the court to present the law in accordance with RPC.

Hope this helps, please reach out for any questions.
