My gf and I reside in MA and we're hit in NH. Other driver struck us from behind and pushed us into another truck. He admitted all fault.

He or she was arguably driving too close to you and unable to stop. The car behind would be...Read more »
The question is : can an employee of a company or the company itself or jointly be sued for the malicious act of that employee causing an employee of another company to lose his/her job without justification?
If the action by the company and/or the employee was with malicious intent, then it is an intentional tort. The issue then becomes whether the employee was acting within his/her official capacity or not. Anyone can file a lawsuit, the issue will be whether the action was outrageous or not and if...Read more »
You forgot to mention whether your dog wore a diaper. The issue for schools is that children play outside (recess) and if poop piles litter the landscape, guess who gets to clean up the kids, once they get poop on them? Don't ask me how they get poop on them, but they will.

Earlier this month I had what turned out to be a migraine with aura that was so severe I could not stand and was barely verbal. The EMTs who responded assumed, based on my medication for mental illness, that I was having a psychotic break. I protested as well as I could, but was very weak. They... Read more »
I am not sure what type of accident you are referring to, but typically you can make a claim for injuries as long as you are less than 50% at fault for the incident. However, the fault that is attributed to you can affect the amount you ultimately receive. For example, if you are determined to be...Read more »

i got my settlement which was 12500 I got my check for 3320 after payment to lawyer and my medical bills But theres a deduction explanation which one says 3000 to Geico. Which I dont understand because I have the Geico medical payment plan in my policy. I was wondering did they fool me?
Perhaps Geico paid for certain medical expenses that were also paid redundantly by the settlement, and so under most insurance policies the insurer would have to be repaid monies they paid you that the settlement paid for as well. Otherwise, you might have been double-paid for the same damages -...Read more »
