Timur Akpinar's answer I don't practice in Massachusetts, but your question hasn't been picked up in four weeks. In many jurisdictions, bicyclists are subject to the same rights and duties as motor vehicles, which generally means compliance with the same traffic regulations. An attorney familiar with motor vehicle & traffic law in your state could advise you more meaningfully.
William John Light's answer It is not a "requirement" that you be provided with "all" documents and every step of the case. You should be kept reasonably informed of progress, be provided key documents and/or documents that impact your testimony. When settlement is offered, the attorney should explain the anticipated accounting of fees, costs, liens, etc. Those numbers generally cannot be finalized until weeks or months after you have agreed to settlement.
John Paul Young's answer Because you are receiving money as a result of an injury claim, the short answer is yes, you are required to repay Medicare. BUT, because of write downs you will not have to pay as much as you think. Medicare writes down medical bills significantly. So, even though the amount billed is $8,500.00, the amount Medicare paid will likely be a great deal less. So the amount you have to repay Medicare will be no more than what Medicare pays. The hospital is bound to take the Medicare payment as...
Rahlita D. Thornton's answer It is best to consult with an attorney in your country. Laws vary from state to state and from country to country. But, it sure sounds like something to consult with an attorney about. I know that there are other factors to consider after having certain weight loss surgeries as well. Good luck to you.
anyone can sue for anything at any time............the issue is can you find a lawyer to do it on a contingency or will you have to pay hourly. Here I think it would be an hourly case in our office if we handled that kind of case.........................................AND were you damaged and can you recover any money.
it doesn't make sense to sue to get a $1 verdict for instance and spend lots of money on a lawyer to do so.
Timur Akpinar's answer It could be the hotel and/or the lamp manufacturer, depending on the circumstances of how the wire came to be exposed. You could consult with a Connecticut attorney who could investigate the matter further and review the medical records.
William John Light's answer You should speak to an attorney before you speak to the landlord's insurance company. It will try to get you to describe your injuries and minimize your pain. It will try to get you to settle for pennies on the dollar before you even know the extent of your scarring and before your medial treatment is complete. Call a knowledgeable attorney, please.
Rahlita D. Thornton's answer Sadly, it’s often your insurance company that may not be providing the plaintiff with full disclosure that indeed the amount being offered is the policy limit. Also, for the policy limits to be offered there were probably some serious injury there. Communicating with your insurance company’s attorney for answers is where you should start. Good luck and this is what happens when insurance company adjusters get to make decisions without really needing to consult with the policyholder.
Wesley Winsor's answer I am not sure that you posited a question. I will try to answer what you might be asking and that is whether a hotel is liable to disclose or facilitate the return of property left at their hotel by tenants if the tenant reports that it was left there.
The hotel's position is that there was nothing found. This would be extremely difficult to prove that the hotel is responsible especially if they had rented the same room again after you had left. If you wanted to sue them, you would...
Timur Akpinar's answer I don't practice in Michigan but your question remains open for 3 weeks. In general, a homeowner's policy should cover medical bills. There can be limitations, such as if a contractor was performing work, the carrier could issue a denial on the grounds that it would be a workers' comp matter. You could check the terms of your policy. If you want to submit the claim and it is denied, you could consult with a Michigan attorney who could advise more meaningfully after reviewing policy.
Charles M. Baron's answer Your question is vague as to which aspect of the Fifth Amendment you mean. I suppose you're talking about the right to keep silent/not incriminate yourself. If so, yes, someone giving testimony in any kind of case, be it criminal or civil (including personal injury), can take the Fifth.
Jay Braddock Jackson's answer Probably not. Since you had notified your landlord, that shows that you were aware that the crack was there prior to your fall. Being aware of a dangerous condition and choosing to use that route anyway, MAY be considered to be negligent on your part. While this does not diminish your landlord's negligence at all, the law in Virginia essentially says that if you share any of the negligence in an accident, even as little as 1%, you are barred from a recovery. Since these steps led to your unit,...
