Q. Where to find an attorney for hit and run motor vehicle accident?
A: Well, certainly sounds like you have some decisions to make. It seems that it is almost always best to sue where the tortious act/conduct (accident) took place. Of course, this would be Idaho. There is a lot to consider, including convenience to most of the participants and a forum that enables you to recover for your losses. You are not entitled to merely "forum" shop, but it is important to select the best place(s) to pursue claim(s). Some decisions may be made for you, depending on the terms of your insurance policy. Most likely you are required to submit to arbitration should a dispute arise under the agreement about a settlement. On the other hand, you should be able to file a complaint in court on a bad faith claim. You could retain an Oregon attorney to represent you--on the car accident and insurance issues--since you are an Oregon resident. This attorney would not be allowed to file any claims in Idaho unless s/he is licensed there, as well; however, they could work with an Idaho lawyer if litigation appears on the table. If you have insurance claims with a Vermont insurer, to include Bad Faith, then you also might need a lawyer who can file in Vermont in either federal and/or state court. Bad faith claims involve your contractual relationship with the insurance carrier and their handling of a uninsured motorist claim. It could get complicated--as if it doesn't seem like that now. So, perhaps you might need an attorney from all three jurisdictions--or one who is licensed in all three. I am convenient that an experienced attorney can sit down and explain all your options. They more likely will need a more detailed factual summary in order to render a more decisive answer. Wish you the best!
Q. How/where do I get compensated for hair loss from a hair product with misleading/false claims?
A: There are few things more frustrating that companies that make promises to their customers, who rely on the promise, then only to find out that it is a lie. "Best Burgers in Town", "World-Famous Pizza", those all make us expect their products to be good--if not the best in town. You do not explain the details of your particular suit, but it would likely have to be a very specific promise to you to have a valid claim against a consumer. And, puffery, is allowed if a reasonable person would believe it to be a false claim that is simply a selling posture (i.e., "It runs like a dream") Claims such as, "Yep, the Ford Pinto was the best car ever made", well, most reasonable people would believe that is not true--and that anyone making that statement is clearly lying; however, it is a subjective belief that is open for debate and one that a reasonable consumer can research. And, no one can say that they relied on that statement to by the car and it was the sole reason they bought it. Were the promises about your results of the hair product such that anyone would agree that they lied to you or misled you in a way that more than just puffery? Did the box say, "Guaranteed to not make your hair green" and then your hair turned green? If so, you probably have a claim and the damages will be the issue left to prove. I think you should evaluate why your claim is more than just an ordinary "buyer beware" case and why the company should be held liable to you. It seems that they would give you your money back for the product if you write a complaint letter to the company; if you are seeking a lot of money, then you will need more proof that the product directly caused the damage. One rule of thumb, if you have a great case, you should be able to find a competent attorney who recognizes that fact and will take it. I know it can be frustrating. I hope you have a remedy to the problem it caused and wish the best for you.
Q. 1. How do I get a dui and reckless endangermeant reduced?2. How am I able to get neglect taken off my record?
A: First, and foremost, consider yourself blessed that nothing worse happened and your daughter is alright and safe, as are you. Second, the fact you "don't remember anything about the incident" is troubling. But, it highlights the seriousness of what occurred. The fact that you were caught now allows a discussion about whether you've done this before and got away with it? Any type of driving impairment is to be avoided at all costs--but more so when a child is involved. A good attorney should be able to help you avoid the worst punishment and might be able to get the reckless driving erased. There might be valid defenses to the medication (DUII) charge depending on the medication dose and how it is quantified. However, a good attorney will also be sure you learned from this incident by counseling you about the dangers--not just to your family, but others on the road. Third, these types of incidents are usually excluded from expungement due to the need of the public to be safe from unsafe drivers and insurance companies who rely on accurate information to make policy decisions. Just find yourself a lawyer you trust, and fight hard, because this is a serious matter with serious consequences (fortunately you avoided the biggest) and you will be the better for taking this to heart and vowing to never drive impaired again. Be safe and take good care of your daughter. You'll never regret it.
