The Attorney I hired for the personal injury, referred me to a workers comp attorney as well. I have reached MMI after a lumbar fusion but I still have a pinched nerve in my neck from whiplash that causes complications . My comp attorney is acting like I should just take what WC offers and has not... Read more »
MMI is a bogus concept invented by insurance companies. Be guided by what the injury attorney has to say. It sounds like you have signficant issues, and fusions are never mmi as the person can develop pain and other issues as the fusion puts more strain on the discs above and below the point of...Read more »

Several times I have found her at the top of the steps outside my door listening to conversations when I have company. She has also brought up many things that she should not know about but has learned from eavesdropping. I live in PA. What can I do?
Not much other than to say she has to understand that for you to feel comfortable staying there she has to not be listening in. At the same time, don't have conversations of any private nature in the room where the door to the hallway is, or drape an elegant curtain over that door with an...Read more »

I had to get the ticket in the mail because "their system was down" when I got pulled over. The ticket is only for 5mph over the limit although he said he got my speed at 81mph in a 65 zone and was doing me a favor. He also could have said something that my inspection was a few days out...

Small things like the color of the car won't get you off the hook. Only 5 over, is something you can fight though if the Judge gets the idea you were actually going 16 over they may sock it to you. You have to look at it from a points perspective--are you better off taking the 5 over or...Read more »

A lot depends on what was shown. It's possible that going into the MRI's you had a predisposing condition. following the additional playing, that might have been the tear, but the question is what was shown when. You may have a case, you may have a case against the school--a lawyer would...Read more »
I have reached out multiple times to the leasing office, but they have not helped. It's becoming unlivable for me - giving me a constant headache - and the smell is seeping into my furniture and clothes. What can I do?
You need to read your lease. If you rented a smoke free premisis, you have a material change in conditions. If it wasn't smoke free, then the fact it becomes something undesirable but permitted by law is a question that will depend on the working of the lease.
The Probation office should have procedures for you to request the restitution. If not , then you need to contact the Pennsylvania Civil Liberties Union, ask to speak with the prison rights project, then ask them your question and if they don't know ask if they can...Read more »

An experts opinion that this was the reason and the only reason would be needed. You would likely want to speak with a doctor anyway. Don't say you are interested in a claim or the doctor will clam up--they are worried about being "dragged into a legal case."
My mother passed away last year, and we didn’t have any issues with inheritance, except for a 1099 showing dividends from an employee stock plan. The account is very small, so it would be more expensive to probate it then it’s actually worth. We’d like to simply ignore it, but we know we’ll... Read more »
My hair is thinning and I have a bald spot that recently appeared. Prior to some hair loss my scalp has been irritated whenever I touched my hair. This concerns the recent lawsuit involving Johnson & Johnson.
At your age you may wish to consider that having hair loss from whatever origin is unusual and you may want to consult an M.D. expert. Do not say you are interested in a case. Doctors don't like to be involved and you need a good diagnosis.
However to make a claim you need some reason...Read more »
The statute of limitations has not expired for a personal injury lawsuit against another party. I would like to file a lawsuit on his behalf. How do I represent him. Do I go to probate court to become the executor of his estate?
Police were called, but did not show up to the scene due to the fact that the other car had no damage. Police called me back and informed me just to exchange information with other party and file a claim.
