Q. is it legal for police officer not to ask me to call towing and he calls his preferred tow and we end up with 15000$ bil
A: ABSOLUTELY! The police have a duty to clear the highway after an accident. To that end, in any given jurisdiction, tow operators must apply with the police agency or district and must be able to respond 24/7 (in good weather) within 20 minutes and meet other criteria, as provided by State Vehicle Code (ILCS Ch. 625). The tow provider is NOT chosen by the officer. It is YOUR responsibility to instruct the tow operator where to take the truck and it is YOUR responsibility to purchase towing insurance or pay the bill. You probably mean $1,500, NOT $15,000. The minimum fee to tow a semi is $1,200 which you know if you are in the business.
Q. I was at work holding a students hand lightly when he grabbed my hand with both his hands and fell to the floor.
A: Your question is very oddly phrased. If you sustained an injury as diagnosed by your physician, by the means that you explained, you have clearly sustained a work injury. If you timely report this injury to your employer, you have a solid Worker's Compensation claim which means that you are entitled to any necessary medical care and if you need to be off work for longer than seven days, you are entitled to receive temporary total disability benefits. In Indiana, once your injury has healed, the doctor repairs something called a PPI (permanent partial impairment rating). A "sprain" is likely to result in a very low PPI score which equates to very little recovery for you. If the PPI rating zero, you get zero dollars. That is the most concise way that I can answer your question. If there is anything else you wanted to know or if there is some aspect that I neglected to cover, please do not hesitate to ask.
Q. Victim lures defendant to place where no contact order is to humiliate cyber bully attack and cause distress to cause ha
A: You only provide part of the scenario. The way this works is that you need to ask a question so that we may respond. Please repost with a question.
