Legal Answers
17 Questions Answered

Q. Is it true that I might not be able to get my medical bills paid if I misused a defective power tool that injures me?
A: Generally speaking, misuse is a complete defense to a claim for strict product liability so long as the misuse was not foreseeable by the manufacturer. That said, I suggest speaking with an attorney that practices Product Liability since the facts of your particular injury may lead to liability against the manufacture and those that placed the product into the stream of commerce.
Q. Is there a time limit for filing a wrongful death claim? What if my spouse died and I was severely injured and that
A: Yes there is a time limit. Personal injury actions in California, including wrongful death, carry a two year statute of limitations. The exception to the two year time period is if the personal injury or wrongful death were caused, or in some instances related to, medical malpractice. If the personal injury or wrongful death was caused or related to medical malpractice, the statue of limitations is one year.
Q. I received a DISC001 in the mail. I was not stamped by court or certified. Should I answer?
A: Before you can be compelled to respond to written discovery questions, you must first be personally served with a copy of the Summons and Complaint. A plaintiff may not serve interrogatories on a defendant within the first 10 days after service of summons or defendant's appearance in the action (whichever is first). [CCP §2030.020(b)] Exception: In unlawful detainer actions, the “hold” on plaintiff's interrogatories is only 5 days after service of summons or defendant's appearance in the action (whichever is first). [CCP § 2030.020(c)](1)
Q. If a car in front of you makes a sudden stop and I run into him am I at faught
A: Most likely yes.
Q. Can you seek damages for pain and suffering in a wrongful death case?
A: No you cannot recover for pain and suffering for wrongful death in California. In California, you can recover the following damages for a Wrongful Death lawsuit: 1. The financial support, if any, that the Decedent would have contributed to the family during either the life expectancy that the Decedent had before [his/her] death or the life expectancy of Plaintiff, whichever is shorter; 2. The loss of gifts or benefits that Plaintiff would have expected to receive from the Decedent; 3. Funeral and burial expenses; and 4. The reasonable value of household services that the Decedent would have provided. 5. The loss of the Decedent's love, companionship, comfort, care, assistance, protection, affection, society, moral support; [and if applicable] 6. The loss of the enjoyment of sexual relations. 7. The loss of the Decedent's training and guidance.
Q. I saw my brother get severely injured as a passenger in the car I was driving when a drunk driver hit us. Can I sue for
A: You (as well as your brother) can individually sue the drunk driver for your personal injury and emotioanl damages, assuming you were injured. Whether you can recover emotional distress damages for witnessing your brother's injuries will depend on several factors including where you and he reside.
Q. I was given affidavit to sign regarding my assets because I might owe more than my insurance I have to ?
A: You are likely being asked to sign this declaration so the Plaintiff's attorney can determine whether or not to recommend that his/her client accept your insurance company's policy limit offer, or to reject it and file a lawsuit against you. If you choose to sign the declaration, make sure all statements contained therein are 100% accurate. Whether you are required to sign this or not could be determined by the language in your insurance policy. You should consult with an attorney regarding your obligations pursuant to the language of your insurance policy.
Q. I was in a car accident December 2015 and hurt really bad almost died went through physical ther and submitted my do and
A: Contact an personal injury attorney as soon as possible. You have two years from the date of your injury to file a lawsuit, or you will forever be barred from bringing a claim for damages. I would be happy to speak with you.
Q. There has been a recall on my car model but I didn't know until after I was injured because of the defective part.
A: Yes, can you still recover for injuries arising from a defective product as long as you are still within the statue of limitations. In California this is two years from the time you knew or should have known about the injury.
