Robert D. Kreisman's answer The first issue is whether the injured party is of sound mind and memory and/or has the capacity to sign a POA. If the injured person hires an attorney, then that attorney would be empowered by the attorney-client contract in most instances to handle most of the issues you raise excepting the decisions on health care. I believe that a POA for health care signed in another state or jurisdiction would likely be honored in another state. By all means check with an attorney in your area who...
My suggestions would be to call them up and talk to them. Sign an agreement. Put down a retainer of an agreed upon amount. If anything happens you have a lawyer retained and they know they'll get paid.
Some attorneys won't do this at all because they don't want to be responsible for representing you for whatever; they want to know what they're getting into. Others will likely charge...
Peter Munsing's answer There is no such thing as a fiance visa other than one for those who intend to marry within 90 days. there are a number of other requirements . These days it is very, very difficult.
John Kenneth Joyner's answer If you feel you are being threatened you can contact local law enforcement and let them decide if there is probable cause to charge the person with a crime.
You can also make a copy of the threats and take them down to the courthouse to request a temporary protection order. You can then request a hearing to have the order made permanent. You will be required to have the paperwork served on the restrained party before the permanent protection order hearing.
Peter Munsing's answer I've been successful in getting compensation from the owner's insurance. If you have collision let your company handle it and go after the owner. If you were injured, then contact a member of the Colo. Assn for Justice. They give free consults.
Peter Munsing's answer Why not discuss this with your attorney. It does mean that many doctors may shy away from treating you so you'd really need to consider if there are other ways to get the same information.
Peter Munsing's answer First, talk to your agent. Generally, in a wreck, only the driver can be sued. In some states jointly held property can't be gotten if someone were to win. Unless the person is totaled, the plaintiff will settle for less than $500,000 unless they are a 30 year old skilled laborer and have multiple fractures. If you can afford the umbrella, then sounds like that may be worth the peace of mind you wish.
Stephen J. Plog's answer He shouldn't be able to just sign custody over to another person. More information is needed and you should consult with a family law attorney to assess if married, your rights, options, etc. If not married any property issues would be civil.
Peter Munsing's answer If you were hurt in a wreck contact a member of the Colorado Justice Assn--they give free consults, will represent you on the basis they only get paid when they get money for you.
Peter Munsing's answer Talk to a member of the Colorado Assn for Justice--they give free consults. Argue that it was not of a consistency that you can avoid having it run into your eyes. Check with the FDA and CPSC to see if other complaints.
Above all save the tube/bottle, packaging, receipt. Get follow up medical care with an opthamologist (MD) NOT an optometrist.
Tristan Kenyon Schultz's answer Talk to an employment lawyer about the specifics of your case. Be warned, you will have an uphill battle counter your prior statement that the injury did not occur at work. There is case law that does protect employees who are forced to not report an injury in the workplace for fear of discipline/dismissal by the employer, but these cases are restricted to clearly documented threats by the employer. Also be aware that worker's compensation claims usually expire 2 years from injury.
Tristan Kenyon Schultz's answer Since it sounds like the insurance company is not your health insurance company, you will need to send the bills (or copies) to the driver's insurance company. This is because the driver's insurance company does not have access to your medical records. You are not required to send the bills to the insurance company if you are planning on suing, but if you are trying to reach an out-of-court settlement, you will likely need to send the bills.
