William John Light's answer You need a NorCal attorney. He may have a claim for Elder Abuse, violation of the Unruh Act, assault/battery. He might also have nothing. These disputes are always hard to unravel who is at fault. It is worth exploring.
Mr. Eugene Ray Critchett Esq's answer If you have concerns about the sudden changes, try seeing another pain management specialist for a second opinion. However, it certainly is a new trend to decrease the use of pain medications.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer Unless you have a written employment agreement, you have little or no employee rights in Florida. Why? Because Florida is an “at will employment” state--which means Florida employers are free to hire, assign, re-assign, re-locate, promote, demote, discipline, suspend or terminate employees “at will.” They do not have to give employees any reason either. The only thing employers cannot lawfully do is make these employment decisions based upon any illegal reason or classification such as...
Adam Alexander's answer You have a few options. Have you considered bankruptcy? If you significant unsecured (credit cards, collection accounts) debt, I suggest you consult with a bankruptcy lawyer.
Do you deny the debt or can you object to the amount of the alleged balance? If so, you can fight. Hiring a lawyer is often too expensive for consumers so if that is not an option, do the best you can.
If you have already filed bankruptcy or do not wish to do so, and you have no defense to the debt, I...
However, it may not be in your best interests, in the long run, to do this. A lawsuit will likely take you several years and cost you a lot of money. It could also destroy any relationship you may have with your mother. Lawsuits between family members are always the most contentious (at least in my experience.) You're opening yourself up to unpleasantness you will likely regret later.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer There is no law or regulation requiring the use of a business account to pay employees. However, there are laws requiring all employers to inform all their employees--at least annually-- of the exact dollar amount they were paid and the exact dollar amounts of all deductions taken out of each employees' gross pay.
Meghan L Howard's answer It depends. If you have a divorce agreement or court order that states you shall keep him on your health insurance so long as he is eligible, you would not be able to remove him without court approval.
T. Andrew Miller's answer Unfortunately, the answer is yes based on what you’ve written here. There’s an entire team essentially working against your best interest in the name of saving money. Get an experienced workers comp attorney on your team so you can know your rights and options. Otherwise they will just keep doing as they please and taking advantage.
Homer P Jordan IV's answer You may want to consult with an attorney who can review the facts of the case in detail and present you with any options you may have. Without seeing the paperwork involved or knowing all the details it is difficult to provide a response. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558 HomerJordan.com
Timur Akpinar's answer That decision is yours to make, but in general, a medical provider needs an assignment of benefits form to submit a bill on behalf of a patient so that the check is made out to the provider instead of the patient.
Jeffrey Louis Gaffney's answer She should be safe there. The rules for evicting someone from nursing care are pretty strict. As long as she (or her family or conservator) are working with the facility to get her on Medi-Cal, there should be no problem. If the facility does not take Medi-Cal though, then there will be problems.
The lesson to take away is that Medi-Cal planning needs to be done years before you need it. If you can put your assets into the right kind of trust, then you will qualify for Medi-Cal and...
