Civil Litigation Help Needed?
In June Of 2008 I Received A Letter Which Was Forwarded From My Home Which I Sold In May Of 2008. The Letter Was From An Attorney And Stated That Someone Fell On My Property And To Contact My Insurance. I Thought It Was A Scam But Still Faxed It Over To My Insurance. I Never Heard Anything Else In 2 Years. So It Is 2010 Of November, I Am Now Living In An Apartment And Have Been Since 2008 And I Received A Letter From The Philadelphia, Pa. Gas Company And Water Company And The City Of Phila., Pa Stating That We Are All Defendants In The Case Of A Slip And Fall. Also, My Neighbor Was Named As A Defendant As Well. Ok, So There'S 5-6 Of Us Being Sued By One Person. I Had Never Been Served With Official Papers, Only That Letter From 2 Years Ago. I Have Gotten Advice From 3 Lawyers. One Told Me To Contact My Former Insurance And Find Out What Happened, So I Did. Unfortunately, I Found Out That The Insurance I Carried On The House Does Not Cover Liabilities. So, I Talked To Lawyer #2 He Asks Me To Go Out To Dinner And Talk About It And Asked If I Was Married And All Kinds Of Irrelevant Stuff. So, I Quickly Drop Him And Got To Lawyer #3. I Tell Him Everything And He'S Seems To Be Fine. I Asked What Is The Worst Case Scenario, Can They Garnish My Wages, Or Levy My Bank Account If This Person Is Actually Telling The Truth And Wins, He Skips Around And Doesn'T Answer The Question And Just Says &Quot;You Don'T Want Them To File A Judgment On You.&Quot; So, I Found Out That My State Pennsylvania Doesn'T Not Allow Civil Judgments To Garnish Your Wages, I Have The Exact Legal Number And Paragraph And Blah, Blah That States This So I Felt Better. So, My Question Is Still... &Quot;Can They Levy My Bank Accounts?&Quot; I Can'T Get An Answer And Am So Frustrated. Btw This Woman Claims To Have Fallen On My Property As Well As The House Next To Where I Used To Live. Don'T Know How In The World That Could Happen. Anyway, If Anyone Knows Anything About Civil Litigation That Would Be Great. Lawyer #3, Would Not Give Me A Direct Answer And That Bothers Me. I Just Want To Know If In Fact This Lying Lady Wins, Can They Levy My Bank Accounts. Remind You I Have Still Never Been Served By Her Lawyer. My New Apartment Complex Accepted A Letter And Signed For Me But Lawyer #1 Said That Still Doesn'T Mean I Have Been Served. Is He Correct? I Was Going To Try To Use Defective Service With The Judge To Get Myself Off Of This Nonsense Case. It Has Been Two Years And Had I Been Served I Could Have Been Building My Case By Now. However, They Want To Go Into Arbitration In One Month And I Just Got Notice Of It 2 Years After The Fact. Also, Was Going To Try The Statute Of Limitations. Can I Say This? Right Not I Can'T Seem To Get One Straight Answer Out Of The 3 Lawyers So Far. Please Help.
They Cannot Garnish My Wages In Pennsylvania, I Know This To Be True.
Can They Levy My Back Account?
Should I Use A Lawyer For The Arbitration?
Should I Use The Defective Service As A Defense?
Should I Just Send A Letter And Not Go To The Arbitration?
If She Wins, I Know A Judgment Can Mess Up My Credit, But At This Point I Really Don’T Have The Money For A Lawyer. So Should I Go Pro Se?
You didn't give enough details to make a final judgement call, so I will address some points you may wish to persue.
First, Did you own the home at the exact time and date of the alleged slip and fall?
Was the alleged victim a resident, occupant, visitor, guest or otherwise invited onto the property or was she a tresspasser?
What are the exact date and times of BOTH alleged slip and fall incidents and the exact distance from each other on the two different properties?
Were there any witnesses to the alleged slip and fall incidents in either or both of the incidents?
Was the witness for each the SAME witness?
What is the reason that the plaintiff took so long to send notices?
Do you know the timeframe required by law for the delivery of such notices and did the plaintiff comply? If Not, check the LAW!
In each of the above instances, you have to consider all possibilities and investigate each point.
With any governmental or Law Enforcement organization or agency, the first thing you must do is establish the true identity of the agent, get their information just like a cop would take yours!
You must also establish if the agency they represent allows them to use alternative identies or fake IDs? You must ask and they must disclose!
No matter what you are told, no matter what they put in writing, you have the right to know what LAW they are claiming to act under! They MUST disclose it!
You have a right to representation! Get a Lawyer! Demand they provide you with legal counsel if you are being charged with any crime!
Never tell them anything... Don't answer any questions until you consult an attorney! You should write down ALL of their question and tell them your attorney will answer their questions as soon as you have consulted with him or her.
Everything they tell you... CHECK IT OUT!
Go online, to the library, to an attorneys office and ask to use the library for research!
As for freezing assets, accessing your checking or savings account, taking money out of your accounts for any reason, they need a court order! Ask to see it, and tell the bank that if they can't produce it, you want your account reverted to it's previous status and balance or you will be seeing your attorney in the morning!
If they don't produce one, See an attorney in the morning and persue it!
You MAY have issues with services of process with your new appartment complex being authorized to accept legal process in your 'stead'... did you previously, in your lease, or verbally authorize the appartment complex to accept process for you? If NOT, then THEY may have violates the law... I do not know your location so I cannot assess that issue for now... however, there is such a thing as 'Chain of Custody' that may have some effect on the issue.
Check the administrative laws of your local court for applicability.
ALWAYS! Check, Verify, Authenticate!
ASK QUESTIONS... and demand answers! Always tell them to show you the LAW!

Rent Security Law In Nj?
Hello, I Want To Know When Did Rent Security Law Start? I Believe In The Late 1990S. My Question Is I Have Been Living In An Apt Bldg (Passaic County, Nj) Since 1978, Am I Still Entitled To My Security Plus Interest Since '78 Or When The Law Was Passed Or Am I Even Entitled To Interest Being This Was Before The Law Passed? I Have Never Received A Statement Of Where My Security Is.
The Security Deposit Law applies to all rental premises or units used for dwelling purposes except owner-occupied premises with not more than two rental units, irrespective of when the contract began. Therefore, you will be entitled to interest exactly as the law dictates. Here is the full text of the update: http://www.nj.gov/dca/divisions/codes/pu...
What Are The Legal Rights Of A 13 Year Old Girl In New York? Things That You Have Contol Over Your Parents.
At 13 you are basically under your parents thumb. As long as you are a minor (under 18) they control you not you control them. The only thing that you might have a right to a decision on would be if your parents were divorced- the court might let you decide which parent to live with, but it would still have to be in your best interest. How about FORGET control & learn COMPROMISE on both sides. Why not talk to your parents about whatever it is that you want to control. Who knows maybe they will listen & if all of you could give a little bit on some issues it might work out for everyone, then there would be a happy ending. (but do it very calmly, & respectfully) you will be able to hold thier attention longer if you have all your "ducks in a row" meaning - before you confront them make a list of all the positive & negative things about the subject & try to have a good answer for the negative ones. STRESS THE POSITIVE as much as you can!!!!
