Legal Answers
Q. Was in a car accident my car got towed and I sighed over the title still charged me 100 and would not let me get my stuf
A: There are a ton of questions that are left unanswered about your situation. However, you probably know that tow trucks do not operate for free, in fact, from from it. Tows from an accident can be expensive. In most cases, the party who is at-fault is going to be ultimately responsible for paying these tow charges. And, tow companies have gotten very skilled at finding payment sources. A lot of people sign up for Triple A ("AAA") because it is relatively inexpensive and just one tow in a year makes it worth it. This said, to the extent that you provided them more in money and property than the tow is worth, you should get some money back. Do you have towing on your insurance? If you agreed to allow them to tow your vehicle, you are probably at least liable to pay whatever the reasonable value of their services is in the community. If you have insurance, and they are going to pay for you, be sure to get a refund for what you paid. You should seek the advice of an experienced attorney on this issue if you feel that you are being taken advantage of and/or you have questions. They should provide you a reasonable opportunity to get your personal belongings from the vehicle and/or put them in a box for you to retrieve.
Q. Who can I sue if I was involved in a two vehicle collision and was wrongfully given a citation? I've plead not guilty.
A: I am so sorry to hear that you were involved in an automobile accident. You mentioned, "we", so I hope everyone is alright. It is even worse when you get blamed and cited for an accident. First, I can understand the frustration. You must set aside your feeling of being "wronged" and fight the citation. Second, if you do not prevail on the citation, you will not likely have any further recourse. If the case gets dismissed, you will have possible recourse if the officer did not have probable cause (or some rational basis) to issue you a citation. If the officer did not witness the events, then the determination was based on other's statements and the accident scene. If people lied and/or misled the officer, you might have possible claims as to those persons; however, in most cases, you will not have any recourse to sue for damages. Your citation is likely an infraction, not a criminal charge, so that lowers the possibility of serious punishment or liberty loss. You may still pursue your civil claim for damages against the other party if you can prove the elements of negligence against the other party. It is important that you speak with a lawyer right away about your traffic citation and your motor vehicle accident. Best of luck to you and the others involved.
Q. I'm located in Medford Oregon. A spot on my hand was misdiagnosed as "sun damage", when in fact, it was cancer.
A: I am very sorry for your experience. I know it can be frustrating to go through an experience that was difficult and/or could have been prevented. Medical Malpractice cases are tough because they almost always involve a serious injury and/or loss. Plus, in order to have a claim against a medical provider, there has be an qualified expert who can testify that the healthcare professional acted below the standard of care in the same/similar community as Medford. In short, would a healthcare expert claim that it was unreasonable for the doctor to make the mistake? It is not enough for a non-expert to assume the doctor should have performed certain tests, or follow a protocol given perceived knowledge of medication and its known propensity to cause cancer. You need an expert to say so. Then, if you can establish the doctor was negligent--in terms of these claims, negligence is only if the doctor's conduct was outside the standard of care--then, you need to prove the outcome would have been better if the doctor got the diagnosis correct. So, if the end result was to have the same excision on your hand to remove it, then there are likely no significant damages to warrant a lawsuit. If, however, there was a better remedy that you lost out on due to delay or things became much worse due to a delay in treatment, then you can sue for those damages. You need to speak with an experienced attorney right away if you want to sue a doctor, and you need to be prepared to obtain an expert review of the case. I wish you the best in all your future endeavors and hope that you are doing well now.
