Q. Hello, I had a question. I got molested by my teacher when I was about 9 years old. In Los Angeles CA.
A: There is a very lengthy statute of limitations for childhood sexual abuse, both for criminal and civil cases. You should make a report to LAPD. You should then talk to a knowledgeable personal injury attorney. A case against LAUSD (assuming this was a public school) is still possible.
Q. I have a friend that works at Dennys she was in a car accedent on the way to work. She ended up going to the hospital
A: Denny's can ask. She is not required to provide it. If she needs sick leave due to injuries, an off work note from her MD is sufficient. However, Denny's may look down upon a refusal, and your friend might then be looking for a wrongful termination attorney.
Q. My parents and i were in a tragic accident it was the other drivers fault. They did not test him for drugs or alcohol.
A: I am sorry for your loss.

There is no law requiring drug/alcohol tests. There is no law requiring a police report.

I have never seen a fatal collision where a report was not prepared. Complicated collisions require complicated reports, which take longer.

I suggest you speak to one of us on Justia about the collision and any rights you may have.

If there is any issue involving the road/signage.a tort Claim has to be filled within 6 months of the collision, so don’t delay.
