Legal Answers
13 Questions Answered

Q. In April I was in an accident I ended up having to get my leg amputated I was driving had blow out
A: I assume you mean you had a tire blowout. If so, so you still have the tire? You'll have to prove that your crash was the fault of someone other than you. There are tire defects sometimes but you would need to have the tire examined by an expert. Good luck.
Q. Does the whole family need to be a part of a nursing home lawsuit, or can one member file if they want?
A: It depends. If the nursing home resident is living, then usually that person is the only person who can bring a suit for nursing home neglect or abuse. If the person has died as a result of poor treatment, and there is a case for wrongful death, then California law requires that certain heirs be part of the suit. You would be well advised to consult with a lawyer on the subject.
Q. If a dog gets out of my yard and jumps on a person can they sue me?
A: As a general proposition, yes, you can be sued if your dog got out, jumped on someone, and injured them.
Q. would I have a personal injury case if I was assaulted by multiple employees who thought i was a suspected burglar?
A: If you suffered real injuries
Q. I just discovered my grandmother has developed a bed sore in her care facility - what should we do here?
A: First and foremost, make sure her caretakers know about it so she can get appropriate treatment. From a liability standpoint, more facts would need to be known. Developing a bed sore in of itself doesn't mean someone was negligent. It can happen under the best of circumstances. How it developed, and, more importantly, how large it is will tell us whether it could have been prevented, or that it was ignored. I hope this helps.
Q. Is it common practice for a lawyer to set up a personal injury trial date even before a mediation hearing has happened?
A: It's not clear what jurisdiction you are in, but in San Diego there is a case management conference a few months after the lawsuit is filed. At that conference, the judge will ask if the parties are interested in mediation, and, if so, require that it be completed by a certain date. The trial date is also set at that conference. Cases are not required to be mediated. If your fee is structured in such a way that increases when the trial date is "set," that would be unusual here in San Diego because trial dates are set fairly early in the process. I would suggest that you take a closer look at your fee agreement. With a trial date set more than a year out, it would be uncommon for a fee to increase so far in advance of trial. Best of luck.
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: If you had to undergo significant medical care after your accident, you would be well-served by talking to a qualified personal injury lawyer. You should not delay. Best of luck.
Q. I was injured in a mototrcycle accident, other driver at fault. The medical was covered. The repair took 4+ months
A: Typically the availability of a rental vehicle is a function of the insurance policy, which here sounds like a $30 per day provision. You're probably limited to $30 per day, but its' worth asking to read the policy.
Q. I had a tentative ruling in my California lawsuit. How long does it take the judge to view or reach his final decision?
A: The short answer to your question is that it depends on the judge and the type of case. In most courtrooms, however, the court will issue a tentitive ruling prior to an oral argument so that the parties and their lawyers know what judge is thinking, and to focus the oral argument. After the oral argument, the judge will usually rule with finality right then and there. Judicial departments are busy places, and judges and their staff need move on. Sometimes after oral argument, a judge will want more time to ponder the issues raised and take the matter "under submission." How long the judge takes to decided is up to the judge, but usually the ruling will be given in a week or two. On very complex cases, judges may take months to issue a ruling on a motion, but in California state courts this is rare. Everything I have written assumes your question is about California trial courts. The answer would likely be different in federal court cases, and in cases before both federal and state courts of appeal.
