My wife was rearended 2 years and 1 month ago at a stop

My wife was rearended 2 years and 1 month ago at a stop light. The person driving the car that hit her received the citation and her Mercedes was totaled. Our car had $6,000.00 in damages after being hit and pushed 10 feet into the intersection. My wife had previous back problems and this aggravated it even more but that is difficult to prove. Her insurance company, State Farm has been very difficult and has offered us $4000.00. Our medical expenses have totaled about $1500.00 plus about $5000 in chiropractic services. If I go to court does the judge or jury decide what will be paid. If my wife goes to a chiropractor for the rest of her life (60 yrs old now) it would be 10's of thousands of dollars. She complains about her back everyday. Her chiropractor told her that her insurance company will call expert witnesses at about $450 an hr and if she looses we will have to pay and could in fact make nothing and actually cost us money. Is he right?Thank youPhil & DebiNewport Beach CA

We moved in 3 weeks ago, after moving in we were informed there was a half way house right across the street, we have sewer gas coming in both bathrooms, electrical outlets are out dated and some do not work, a/c unit will not keep the apartment cool and runs constantly driving up the electric bill, dryer has no outside venting so moisture and heat builds up. All we would like is to get out of our lease so we can move

Can a Temporary Restraining Order stop an eviction and if so

Can a Temporary Restraining Order stop an eviction and if so how do I prepare it and if not what can I do? I have a situation where I filed a lawsuit against the landlord a few months ago and in response he sent me an eviction notice. My attorney filed the lawsuit but he wouldn't serve it and I couldn't figure out why, after a week or so of talking to the defendants lawyer he told me that the defendants had agreed to except service and that I didn't have to worry about serving them anymore. .He said that he was negotiating a deal with the defendants attorney and was working on a global solution that involved fighting the eviction among other things. Then just before the deadline on service and one day before the eviction hearing my attorney tells me that the defendants had not agreed to except service and that I had to agree not to contest the eviction or else I wouldn't be able to serve the defendants my lawsuit, the entire agreement he made consisted of giving up the eviction in exchange for an extension on service. ThIf us, I had been telling him to serve the petition for over a month. He flat out tricked me into consenting to the eviction. And then he said that he was going to withdraw from the other case as well. Couple weeks went by and I hadn't heard a word from them and then last week on the 17th I received a notice of his intent to withdraw that showed that he was going to be presenting it to the court for approval on the 17th at 3 o'clock. I called the courthouse and informed them that I had not been served properly with notice of that hearing and they told me that they had not received anything from my attorney I called again on the 18th and then on the 19th and it was the same thing, the courthouse still had no record of my attorney submitting his motion to withdraw. Then this morning I check the court website and I see that not only was his motion submit it today but it was also approved today and he has been withdrawn for my case. So here I am facing this addiction is next week and my attorney is just flat gone. I can prove that I was tricked into consenting to that judgment for the evection and I can prove that it is in retaliation for filing the lawsuit, I actually have a text message from the landlord says just don't soon you won't be a victim. And now that this attorney is officially not on record anymore I can take charge and do something myself, what in the world can I do ? I understand that I can attempt to stay the eviction but it's almost been a month since the case was closed, I understand that the judge might be able to overturn some decisions that were made in light of new evidence but I'm being addicted next week and there's no time to schedule a hearing for those matters. This is an emergency situation and I need to stop this right now, or at least allow more time. Can I file a temporary restraining order that will allow for some time to schedule a hearing and get this out in front of a judge? I know that once he sees it that he will agreed that I should not be evicted from my home.

My roommate found videos of him and his girlfriend taken

My roommate found videos of him and his girlfriend taken through a window from our landlord. The videos were on a network drive attaches to the wifi in our house. But he copied those videos and all the others that were of the landlord. My roommate also demanded that our landlord buy him a car or he would contact the police. I know the landlord is in the wrong, but has my roommate also committed a crime by taking the other videos and pictures that were not his and the trying to extort money from our landlord too?

I am in Ohio. My daughter, age 22 just got her 3rd speeding

I am in Ohio. My daughter, age 22 just got her 3rd speeding ticket in a 12 month period. First ticket in Nov 2015, Second ticket Jan 2016 and 3rd ticket August 2016. She is ordered to go to Mayor's court in Middleburg Heights Ohio Wednesday 8/24. Part of me wants her to go to court and let them scare the hell out of her so that she slows down. BUT...Should she have an attorney? I read that in Ohio she could face 30 days in jail and $250 fine. Would they really give her jail time?JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: OhioJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: no - trying to decide if one is necesaryJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: She had her license suspended at 16 for one ticket in the first 6 months of driving and suspended again at 18 for two tickets in the same year. she also had a speeding ticket w/ no points in June 2015.
