Legal Answers
41 Questions Answered
Q. I adopted a pregnant rescue dog recently. Does that mean I am also the legal owner of her puppies?
A: I would review the adoption contract to see if it says anything about the puppies. If the contract says nothing about the unborn puppies and returning them, then I see no reason you should return the puppies.
Q. I got side swiped by a car while riding my bike. Hit and run. Can I sue if we find the person? And for how much?
A: Assuming the driver of the vehicle that hit you was at-fault for the accident, you can sue if you find the person within the statute of limitations with enough time to get a lawsuit filed. If the incident happened in Oregon, your case must be filed or settled within 2 years. If you have auto insurance, you might want to check your policy to see if you have uninsured motorist coverage for this type of incident.
Q. Can I file charges against someone who used unreasonable physical force with multiple weapons.
A: You can make a police report against someone who used unreasonable physical force with multiple weapons. If you have been a victim of a crime, it would be good to seek justice by making a police report. The police may or may not do an adequate investigation and may or may not refer it to the DA's office. It sounds like the situation may be complex, as you state you were cited for trespassing. If you were trespassing against the person who assaulted you, the person may possibly make a self-defense claim.
