Legal Answers
Q. My apartment water leak for 8 months and so much mold now it has caused my partner to stay in hospital a week
A: An article on the level of proof needed here: https://www.clarklawportland.com/other-areas-of-law/landlordtenant/mold/ You have a 1-year statute of limitations in the state of Oregon for all claims. If this is an ongoing issue, you can only go back one year under the landlord-tenant act, which allows attorney fees for the prevailing party. You also have negligence claims; however, there is no attorney fee provision available under the theory of negligence.
Q. can a traffic ticket infraction issued at the scene of an accident not witnessed by officer be challenged or dismissed
A: Absolutely! The fact that you can challenge something does not mean you will win. However, if the cop did not witness the infraction, the state would need to produce the witness that saw the infraction to avoid a hearsay objection. It is important to object to evidence that does not conform to the rules of evidence.
Q. Should I contact a lawyer regarding a dog bite that has left me with over 15 stitches and glued punctures on my leg
A: Depending on the circumstances and where the dog bite took place, you may or may not be able to prove liability in relation to local laws. The second issue is weather there is insurance or a deep enough pocket to pay. Most home owners and business owners have insurance. If you were attacked by the dog of someone who is judgment proof, any judgment would probably be worth less than the paper it is written on. I would contact animal control so they can do their investigation.
