Legal Answers
Q. My wife was hit while driving her car, after the other driver failed to yield right of way at his stop sign.
A: If you settle with the at-fault party for the contested vehicle amount and sign a release, you will most likely preclude any settlement or award for the injury settlement. You can accept the uncontested amount offered provided you do not have to sign a release. If you think you are being lowballed on the amount, you can hire an expert to give you an appraisal of your vehicle. The difference between the amount they give and the amount the expert states your vehicle is worth will need to be resolved when the injury portion of the case is resolved after treatment is completed. If you are in Oregon, you have a two-year statute of limitations.
Q. Last 4 months water has been coming in thru ceiling 100 gallons a day when it rains. Can I sue landlord personal injury
A: Our firm practices this area of the law. Your landlord has a duty to maintain the premises in a habitable condition for a residential lease, assuming Oregon law applies. However, you refer to "residents" which implies this may be a commercial lease. In a commercial lease, you will need to review your contract to determine your remedies. To answer your question, one would need to know if this is a commercial or residential lease and the state and county, as the laws are different from county to county and city to city in Oregon.
Q. Can vets turn animals away when it’s life or death, and what happens if they do and the animal dies? This is in Oregon.
A: I am not aware of any laws requiring veterinarian hospitals to accept animal patients on an emergency basis. I understand hospitals must accept humans as patients on an emergency basis.

My dog needed emergency services I had to call around to find an opening after Dove Lewis informed me they were too busy to give him the needed emergency care. Fortunately, I was able to get him into Blue Pearl and they saved his life. Sometimes, places are so busy they cannot adequately service additional emergencies due to staffing issues. I think it is better if vet clinics are honest about their ability to handle more pet patients, so people can find a place that is more readily available to meet emergency needs.

We are a law firm and we are not always available to help people on a last-minute basis either due to our contractual duties to existing clients. I wish I could be in two places at one time.

Of course, if the reason service was denied was based upon discrimination of a protected class such as race, sex, or religion, then there would be a violation of the law.

I am sorry about the loss of your pet.
