Q: I am personally getting sued for a car accident that happened on the job it names amazon and me. Am I personally liable?

I am getting sued for damages and personal suffering. The date to appear is june 4th 2021. I am no longer working for the company and the company has gone under since then. Should I appear by myself or should I contact amazons legal department and see if they can help?

William John Light
William John Light answered on May 3, 2021

The Company's insurance will defend you regardless of the fact that the Company has gone under. The police report likely has the name of the Company's insurer, and the policy number. That should be all you need to contact it and ask for it to defend you.

Q: How do I prove a pharmacist did not fill my prescription correctly and as a result I have permanent repercussions

Yes I have been permanently affected due to his negligence but I have no money for a lawyer

Theodore Allan Greene
Theodore Allan Greene answered on Apr 27, 2021

Both previous answers are good. Your doctor (or a paid expert doctor) has to confirm that your prescription wasn't properly filled and that caused the repercussions you suggest. Sit down with a good attorney right away and save the medicine you claim is not correct.

Why would you want an attorney to continue to work for you or your mother despite that attorney clearly wishing to resign? How zealous do you think that attorney will be for your cause if you are forcing him to perform against his will? Slavery comes to mind.
