I was not burned but suffered smoke inhalation. I had the truck for one hour. An auction employee drove the truck to the front of the lot for me to take delivery. I was told it was driveable. The Fire Dept had to come put out the fire.
As the previous person answers in detail you need to look at the terms of the auction. You most likely would have to prove they knew that the vehicle had a specific defect and sold it anyway without warning.
Because when you are done with all your treatment we have to send off to ALL your medical providers to get your full medical record. We also need to know who paid for your medical services... such as Medicare, Medi-Cal or private insurance because they need to be paid back. As the previous post...Read more »
Make sure to document everything you can and call a personal injury lawyer who might be able to help you. We don't charge upfront or ongoing fees and only make any money if we can settle your case. Make sure to get all the medical care you need because that is the only way to prove you were injured.
This is if both the defendant and attached business are named in the settlement. There would be a stipulation for entry of judgment attached to the settlement. The concern is the defendant defaulting and possibly filing bankruptcy prior to making payments.
Opposing attorneys have filed a motion for a summary judgement in my lawsuit against Sutter Creek Police Department, citing my failure to file a tort demand within the one year time statute. What form should I have filed? I have to answer the motion with my defense of my failure, I need to find... Read more »
It should tell you in the motion exactly what they are claiming you didn't do. Did you file a Government Tort Claim Form? If not then that is what they might be saying. It's very hard to sue governmental agencies even when you do have an attorney.
I am getting sued for damages and personal suffering. The date to appear is june 4th 2021. I am no longer working for the company and the company has gone under since then. Should I appear by myself or should I contact amazons legal department and see if they can help?
Both previous answers are good. Your doctor (or a paid expert doctor) has to confirm that your prescription wasn't properly filled and that caused the repercussions you suggest. Sit down with a good attorney right away and save the medicine you claim is not correct.
It's very hard to understand what exactly you are asking? Jury have to evaluate all people testifying and make a determination if they think they are credible or not. You should consider asking the question again with a little more detail.
my 64 year old sister took out several student loans about 15 years ago. At that time, she was diagnosed with advanced stage ovarian cancer. She survived the cancer, but the treatments wiped her out financially and can no longer work. She has no income, no savings, and can't get a job due to... Read more »
Your question cannot be answered with only the information you have provided. Your will need to get a more in depth analysis with both an estate planning attorney and an accountant. And perhaps a bankruptcy attorney. Any money spent now will reap huge rewards down the road. Hopefully you are using...Read more »
You can sue for faulty safety equipment to answer your question. But you should immediately, if you haven't already, secure the car so that an expert can examine it in the condition it was in at the time of the incident. You should sit down with a good personal injury attorney today because if...Read more »
Our combined debt is about $40K and we cannot afford to pay such a high price for a lawyer right now. We want to be able to buy a home in the near future, and are considering settling each debt individually or filing BK if that would be more affordable.
The best advice for most purchases is to get a few different quotes. You might have more issues than the average case or the quote you got was from a busy attorney who quotes high when busy. If you get the same (or similar) quotes from more than one attorney then I would say it involves your...Read more »
Medpay is a benefit you pay for with your own car insurance. It will pay medical bills from an injury you receive in an auto accident regardless of fault. Some (most) require you to pay it back if you get compensation from a 3rd party. A good personal injury attorney will try to get your insurance...Read more »
You should get an attorney if you want to sue someone. The court will sometimes join cases but the facts would have to be very similar if not exactly the same. A good CIVIL litigation attorney can help you understand what options are available.
If they were ordered to pay your attorney fees then you should have the attorney handle the matter. You should have a contract with your attorney that covers such situations. Your attorney needs to confirm with the court how much you paid your attorney.
During initial hearing before new judge, it seemed as if she was not familiar with the case. She did not ask Defendant's atty to declare his presence so I have no idea if anyone was actually present. Lastly, she seemed completely befuddled, as though she had no idea what she was doing.
It's hard to know exactly your role in the case. Are you a defendant? Do you have an attorney? Without more information we can't really give you a good answer. If you have an attorney you should ask them. If you don't and you are a party in the case you should strongly consider...Read more »
If I understand your question correctly then you should ask your criminal defense attorney how you can retrieve whatever was taken from you when you were arrested. If you don't have a criminal defense attorney of public defender then you should get one right away.
