Q. i live in oregon, with other people and the owners dog is vicious and attacks my dog, i dont know what to do
A: Make a complaint to your local animal control. Find out if the dog owner is a homeowner or has renter's insurance. You are entitled to be reimbursed for any vet bills the vicious dog causes to your dog. If a human is attacked, the human is entitled to non-economic damages for pain, suffering and inconvenience in addition to expenses, such as medical or lost income. If the dog owner is a renter, make a complaint to the owner of the property the dog resides and put the complaint in writing. Send it via first class mail with a proof of mailing which should cost around a dollar. If you mail certified, mail certified in addition to a first class mailing so the property owner is on the hook for potential liability if they do not address the issue. ... Read More
Q. How long do I have to file a personal injury claim?
A: You did not state what city the injury happened. In Portland, the homeowner or business is responsible for maintaining the sidewalk in front of their home or business. They should have either business or homeowners insurance. Be sure to get some photos of the sidewalk that you tripped on. Hopefully, you had a witness who helped you obtain prompt medical attention.
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.
