Mr. James Charles Wright's answer Your question is not clear to me. TCA 62-20-101 et seq. provides for licensing of business that collect debts. Subsection e allows for someone to voluntarily make a payment or in the event of a final judgment pay the judgment. The person cannot set aside the payment simply because he debt collector was not licensed. If your question relates to the collection of Court Judgments, these can be enforced by the individual that obtained the judgment, by a lawyer or a debt collection service or...
Mr. James Charles Wright's answer If this happened Arkansas an Arkansas lawyer should answer. Generally a bicyclist on a bike is a "vehicle" not a pedestrian and the rules would apply. Whoever has the right of way in the intersection, the other vehicles will need to yield the right of way.
Mr. James Charles Wright's answer There are really too many factors to consider to respond meaningfully to this. I am assuming from your note that a judgment has been entered and based upon this judgment your wages are being garnished. I would suggest you contact a bankruptcy attorney and walk through all of the facts.
Mr. James Charles Wright's answer Tennessee law is based on comparative negligence- if your injury resulted from your actions then you likely couldn't recover. The homeowner may have medical payments coverage that might pay your medical bills.
Mr. James Charles Wright's answer I am sorry you are going through this. I agree with the answer by Mr. Grefsent. Unless you can find the Driver or the owner of the vehicle in your state and serve them in your state- you would have to file a claim in Tennessee. You need to make sure that you may not have released your claim by accepting the other amounts from the insurer. Make sure you haven't signed something releasing your claim. Good luck.
Mr. James Charles Wright's answer Pulling out of a private drive, a driver should yield the right of way to oncoming traffic. You mention a traffic light - and that the other driver came into the intersection on a red light. If the intersection was controlled by a traffic light then if you entered the intersection on a green light you would have had the right of way over someone with a red light.
Not having insurance has no bearing on fault. However, having no insurance may impact your driver's license. Hopefully...
Mr. James Charles Wright's answer The lease terms will control whether either party can terminate early and under what conditions. In the absence of language in the lease, without the agreement of the other party you cannot terminate the lease early.
Mr. James Charles Wright's answer If you have insurance, you should make them aware of claim. The insurer may provide you with a defense. Also a seller has a number of defenses to a products claim. Not sure why you cant get insurance. May need to ask another agent to help you. I am assuming this means after this claim was made, your insurer notified you it would not renew you.
Mr. James Charles Wright's answer Yes, you may have some defense. But as noted by Mr. Black in his comment- you should notify your homeowner's agent. You may have coverage for this- and the insurance company would provide a defense for you.
Mr. James Charles Wright's answer A worker's compensation claim recover is based upon a percentage of permanent medical implairment multiplied by a statutory amount - this is called permanent partial or total disability. One can also recover temporary disability while out from work until either a return to work date or permanent disability is assigned. Medical bills are covered so long as you go to an approved doctor. Pain and suffering is not a recoverable element of damages.
Mr. James Charles Wright's answer A governmental entity is responsible for injuries caused by defects in its premises so long as the defect is one that the entity was on notice as to (knew about) or the defect existed and was in such a condition that the entity should have known.
Mr. James Charles Wright's answer A collective mark is a type of trademark owned not by an individual or company but by a collective group- so that each member of the group can use the mark. For example the wool trade mark or cotton trademark.
Dilution in value .. equity dilution in value occurs whenever more stock is issued. An example you own 10 shares and your friend owns 10 shares of stock. The company then issues 20 more shares. You went from owning 50% of the company to 25%. Your interest has been diluted....
Mr. James Charles Wright's answer It reallly depends on the reason the otehr person is refusing to pay. You could go to small claims court- General Sessions and represent yourself (unless you are doing business as a Corporation or an LLC- then you can't represent the entity).
Mr. James Charles Wright's answer Sorry- I hate to give "it depends" answers. But - it depends. If the two of you have just started- and have not filed any documents anywhere- then it can be pretty simple- you simply would reach an agreement that would terminate the arrangement between the two of you IN WRITING- so there are no misunderstandings - hard feelings later. If there have been filings- bank accounts- then you would need to include this in the agreement and then "undo" these. This is all based upon your statement...
