"There is a lawsuit that has been filed against cal trans California transportation department I am sick so this is typical and when someone gets killed or seriously hurt on the highway and we are taught by severe injuries you always go for the deep pockets in so let's say someone else is liable for your injuries and is carrying minimal insurance fifteen thousand thirty thousand aggregate a lot of policies that said the minimum here in California which is ridiculous it's been fifteen thirty four I don't know forty years already and you can't get your car fixed for fifteen thousand dollars anymore so to be the victim of a major accident all right there's not enough insurance so where do you go especially if you have a multi million dollars more to go to cal trans you go to the people design the road you go to the state of California in this case and you say the reason that the accident happened it was faulty design of the roadway and that's exactly what happened here a there was a court that found that a stretch of highway was a dangerous condition when I the driver of a car going north bound on the freeway tried to pass a tour bus miscalculated and dash head on crash in to the fuller's car and that the fullers is Peter fuller hi he was severely wounded severely injured his wife was killed so it's a big big case obviously and so it was faulty design of the road in the jury he said that well I yeah we think it was faulty design you go what part well because you could pass during that stretch of highway it's one of those where you have a two lane and they should not have allowed that stretch of highway I too have the pass lines because that that wasn't enough visibility although they had nothing to do with a head on crash and so the appeals court look at this and said wait a minute in order for an argument into a defective roadway you have to anticipate that is the state that if an accident happened it was as a result even partially because there was a defect in the road otherwise you can point directly at it and say very go a member case where it was up on a on one of the hillsides and you'll be how they barriers those metal barriers they have on the side of the road to keep you from falling over from driving over the cliff well one was defective it over it went and of course the state was found completely liable there well here the judge because it was a special verdict said you know what how do you anticipate someone passing en going head on into another car and you can say that the state is responsible it's not you could never anticipate that in a design the only way you can spend it and that in the design is you don't let anybody ever pass so anyway case lost appeals court said no you can't anticipate good bye no money Chow baby I think we're actually said shall baby in its side decision okay all right here we go now I've we've moved let me movie screens out of the way now we have the right screen and their legal everything around and I think I'm okay all right yeah thank you for sharing all that out and let's yeah let's do it all right David we'll start with you welcome to handle on the law David you there yes I'm here but you're right yeah start I was involved in a six car accident middle guy stop at a stop sign our stop light the lady behind me hit me and somebody hit her and the insurance companies all four different insurance companies are saying Hey we can't make up her mind who's at fault we're gonna go to arbitration panel and that's been going on for like about two months now so my question is call handle on Wall handle the loss that hate no nobody really got hurt nobody did get hurt and if we take forty year your idea of you know thirty from the IRS blah blah blah so machine is do I wait for the arbitration panel does it really exist yes course small claims you can file small claims against the driver who hit you because you don't have to join the arbitration unless there's something in your insurance policy that says under these or similar circumstances you must go to arbitration but usually usually not so you can withdraw from the arbitration the other three insurance companies work it out and your left suing the driver of the car that hit you now there was no driver behind that car the driver behind you started this your ball affect right are there was actually a car the bunker there was a very much damage but that's what they're saying is that that lady of claiming that guy doctor everybody forward ever yeah I mean that's what happens is the last it's the last person I mean that happened to me when it was raining last year and out what ended up happening is odd I I was able to stop in time and everybody cut stop short a lady behind me slammed into me and I slammed into the lady in front of me and dived or her insurance paid for the whole thing I wasn't at fault so you're not at fault and the only person you consume are especially if there really was not enough room distance because that's a little complicated how much distance and the law says you have to keep a reasonable safe distance in my case it was a in my case the the whole freeway had stopped cold because of something was going up so there was no such thing as a safe distance and the insurance part company pick that up but if you want to withdraw and go individually against a lady you can but her insurance may not have enough money to pay you they're paying everybody else and so you're not even though I was the first hit that matter nobody cares you were the first hit is how much damage aggregate it happened it's just whoever was damaged the most so I would I would join the arbitration panel or you're on your note on your own and there won't be any money for insurance laps you gonna go directly against her that was your choice as I don't think they're good ones frankly hi Tom where the hell are you time there you are Tom welcome to handle on the law Tom yeah yeah yes I'm I'm sorry all right Tom welcome okay again thank you for taking my call I had some ham one living in the garage in the back here in our own inspectors come in indicated that it's not permissible given that it's not up to code being out there and I'm wondering what obligation I own he's been in there for a couple of years and that has not paid I've allow them to be there what obligation do I have now is I must ask him to leave you have to a victim you have to go through a formal vacation process and you're not going to probably get any money you can ask a reasonable rant you probably waves around and he has to be served and they'll be an unlawful detainer and he has ten days to answer and you have to go through the entire process because he is already a tenant so you get to talk to a landlord tenant attorney because I wouldn't do it on my own because it is so technical to toss someone out of a residence that it's too easy to make a mistake I have done the elections were talking about the very very early part of my career where I was doing any kind of law to pay the bills and I still wouldn't do the objections because it is that technical and if you're wrong at any point yes start all over again hello yeah I know yeah you have to no way around it so you go to the website I got a handle on the law dot com and we have lawyers they do affections but you have no choice I tried on your own your sept I was gonna say I think he's receptive to seeing a little money when you go see but then yet you by the way there may be money that you have to pay him anyway and if he doesn't know about it you have no duty to talents offering a couple hundred Bucks or five hundred dollars worth thousand dollars to move because you're gonna get hit with more now that's the way to do
