Question About Legal Information?
I Got A Card From A Law Firm For A Civil Suit. They Have My Home Address. If This Goes To Court And I Hire A Lawer Can I Get A Hold Of This Persons Home Address. The Address I Got From Him Isn'T Current. I Would Feel More Comfortable Having The Equal Amount Of Information.
If his address is relevant to your defense, you would be entitled to the information.
Response to your personal message: (I don't reply to messages unless I've gotten best answer.) Based on what you have described, it doesn't seem likely that his home address is relevant to your defense. That you would feel more comfortable having the information isn't a sufficient basis to request or require the information. .
Slip And Fall....Do I Really Need A Lawyer?
Hi I Slipped And Fell In A Major Department Store On Some Drops Of Water That Must'Ve Been Drug In From Another Customer From The Rain. Store Management Came Over And I Filled Out An Accident Report. Less Than 24 Hours Later, I Had To Go To The Er And Found That I Have A Severe Ankle Sprain And Needed A Brace And Crutches. I Also Missed 2 Days Of Work And Possibly More Because Of The Injury. The Company Did Contact Me A Day Later For A Follow Up, I Told Them I Had To Go To The Er And They Said They Would Forward My File To The Claims Department And They Would Call Me Back In A Few Days. There Is Video Of Me Falling From The Stores Cameras. Should I Hire A Lawyer Or Trust That The Company'S Insurance Will Compensate Me For Medical Bills And Loss Of Wages? I Don'T Want To Sue And I Don'T Want To Have To Pay A Bunch Off Legal Bills, But I Need Compensation For At Least The Things Mentioned Above. Any Advice? Thank You For Any Help You Can Offer.
Look for an attorney in your area who will work for a percentage of the money you receive.
Why Aren'T Any Of The Candidates For President Challenging The Impact Of Trial Attorneys On Our Lives?
There Seems To Be A Fair Amount Of Animus Against Corporations, Pharmaceuticals, Lenders, And Incumbents, But Has Anyone Suggested Court Costs Have Impacted Our Lives As Much As Any Of These?
Your Prescription Drugs And Doctor Visits Cost More Because Of Malpractice Insurance And Many Doctors And Insurance Companies Shy Away From Some Procedures Because Of The Risk Of Liability.
Unquestionably There Are Many Greedy People In Corporations, Banks, The Medical Industry, And The Insurance Industry, But What About Greedy Lawyers?
I agree with all above that it's the laws that need to change. But it IS the attorneys (generally those in legislature) who are making the laws (usually in response to some special interest or campaign contributions) or perpetuating the law by not working to change them. There is such lack of common sense in the legislature that it is ridiculous.
Of course, our constitution does make certain guarantees and I don't think the constitution should be fiddled with. (So stop going after our second amendment you bast.ards!) And the constitution guarantees trial by jury, representation, etc. So even sock cutters with unfathomable claims can bring lawsuits - AND WIN! And even if they were BORN guilty, defendants are entitled to legal representation.
Unfortunately, this means that someone has to represent them. And that's where the attorneys come in. Some are dirtbags who would represent a squirmy, trash-eating maggot, and others are the ones representing some idiot who left that pile of trash out for the flies, which in turn attracted flies, which in turn laid the eggs this maggot came from.
Most attorneys would refuse to represent the maggot and the idiot. Those are the upstanding attorneys. But then there are those pond scum attorneys who will take just about any case if it means making a few bucks (I could go on and on with examples, but you get my point.) If more attorneys would turn those away who had frivolous cases like this, the legal system wouldn't be over-burdened and "broken."
But "the people" keep buying into all this stuff by allowing lawsuits to keep happening - kids suing because they can't wear a t-shirt to school, etc. (Damn ACLU.) Until "the people" wise up about all this, it will never change.
I'm an attorney, but I'm not currently practicing. I'm not sure if I even WANT to EVER. But if I did, I wouldn't be one of *those* kinds of attorneys. I actually have a conscience.
Living Will Or Durable Power Of Attorney?
Which One Would You Recommend And Why?
A living will is a legal document that a person uses to make known his or her wishes regarding life prolonging medical treatments. It can also be referred to as an advance directive, health care directive, or a physician's directive.
In the general sense, a "Power of Attorney" (hereinafter "POA") is a document whereby one person (called the "principal") authorizes another individual or entity (called an "agent" or "attorney-in-fact") to act on behalf of the principal. The most common uses for a POA are financial transactions and health care decisions. Most states have one set of laws governing financial POAs and second set of laws governing POAs for health care decisions. Therefore, it is the common and recommended practice not to mix the two purposes into one document: i.e., an individual desiring to have a POA covering both financial and medical situations should prepare two separate POAs, one dealing with financial issues and the second dealing with medical issues
Personal Injury Lawsuit?
I Was In A Grocery Store Yesterday And Slipped And Fell On Some Liquid On The Floor And Took A Pretty Hard Fall On My Knee. I Got Up And Walked Away Thinking That I Was Fine, But Soon After I Got Home I Had A Lot Of Pain And Returned To The Store To Speak With The Manager. He Spoke With His Higher Up Manager And Confirmed That Sprite Was Spilled And Not Cleaned Up. There Was Also No Caution Sign. I Can Walk On My Leg But With A Limp And Only For Short Periods Of Time On Flat Ground. Going Up Stairs Is Nearly Impossible And Walking For A Long Time Makes The Pain So Much Worse. I'M Going To Get X-Rays Today, But If This Injury Were To Chronically Effect My Ability To Work, Is There Some Kind Of Money That I'M Entitled To For Loss Of Wages And Suffering? I Have A Job Where A Large Portion Of My Income Relies On Tips And With This Injury I Will Be Able To Make Absolutely No Tips. Any Help Or Advice Would Be Greatly Appreciated!!
Yes, you should be covered by the store's insurance coverage, however grocery stores tend to fight these lawsuits quite vigorously because they happen all the time in stores and there's a good amount of fraud in the slip and fall injury market. Remarkably, the worst culprit in a grocery store is the harmless grape. People step on them and they often cause a fall in the produce department.
If the store did not state they would accept a claim from you (typically they will ONLY cover your medical bills...not lost time from work or wages), then I would suggest you speak to an injury attorney to find out what they can do about it.
Most attorneys will allow you to have a first consultation for free, so no worries there and they often take such cases on contingency, so you shouldn't be shelling out anything unless your case wins versus the store.
If so, then the attorney typically takes 30%, 40% or 45% of the settlement, depending upon whether the case is settled before trial, during the trial, or as a result of a judgment by the court respectively.
What Does The District Attorney Of Social Services Do?
I'Ve Never Had A Da Of Social Services At My Door. I Recently Filed For Aid From Social Service Last Week. I'Ve Been On Aid Many Years Ago And It Was Smooth Getting On And I Got A Job And Got Off. The Da Was Knocking At My Door At 8:00 Am This Morning, My Kids Were Sleeping And I Was Unshowered And In My Pajamas. He Told Me He Was At My House Yesterday Same Time, But I Wasn'T There (Taking My Kids To School). I Told Him Through The Screen, &Quot;Can We Reschedule This? My Kids Are Asleep And I Haven'T Had A Chance To Shower And Put Clothes On. He Told Me This, &Quot;Either You Let Me Through This Door Or You Will Have To Reapply.&Quot; He Said He Is On Limited Time Also It Was This Instant Or Else. So I Told Him I Can Reschedule Or Come Back Later. He Then Left And Rudely Said, &Quot;Good Luck!&Quot; Why Was He Being So Mean And Demanding To Come In My House At 8Am? I Don'T Have An Issue With Letting Social Service In. .I'Ve Let Them In Before And No Problems. I'M Not Doing Any Fraud Or Anything. I Have An Active Child Support Case With The D.A.. .Why Would I Be Investigated? I Don'T Have A History Of Anything Or Nothing For Him To Question Me On.
There is no position with the title "District Attorney of Social Services." There is a district attorney, and there is a director of social services. Their paths cross often on official business.
It's impossible to say why this person was at your door at 8:00 AM, but if you have an active child support case with the DA, they must need to discuss it with you. Early or not, you probably should have allowed him to come in.
