Q: so how do I prove authenticity of the medical bills I paid for my care after a rear end accident?
this is an accident where I was rearended by two parties that dispute liability and that I was injured 5 years ago and now they want to exclude my medical bills as hearsay they already got my experts excluded because i became proper and didn't know how to designate my experts correctly and was given misinformation when I was told to amend my designation but not instructed to get permission from the court.
you are obviously over your head.
did you become pro per b/c you fired the lawyer or the lawyer quit?
why did the lawyer quit if that was the situation?
you need to try to make an appointment with another PI Lawyer...if possible.
if they question your meds, they can certainly subpoena the med records....as can you.
is a claim being presented against you? if so YOUR ins should come in to defend your rights
A: Your expert was not excluded because you became pro per. Courts don't exclude testimony because a party is pro per. Your expert was probably excluded because you failed to lay a proper foundation. Your bills were excluded because you failed to follow basic rules of evidence. Cases don't get easier over time... they get harder because there are more rules, more deadlines not to mention that the action becomes more adversarial. You need a lawyer.
