You were supposed to have them served on the defendants, usually by a deputy or a private process server.
When did the injury occur and when did you file the lawsuit?
it occurred 2 years ago on September 2nd.
When did you file the lawsuit? Also, was this the result of a car wreck?
No. The landlord did not mitigate damages to my apartment after it flooded with human urine and feces due to a root found in the main sewage line. Due to this I became ill and had to drop out of graduate school. I broke the lease and moved out per my doctor. They created false invoices to show that they had cleaned the unit thus I had no right to break the lease. They gave these invoices to a collection agency as well. I have proof they created false invoices - the rental insurance rep took pics on the days they claim to have cleaned the unit so if I can't do a personal injury now couldn't I do something with fraud? That's another question which I can ask separately so you are paid appropriately though.
I filed with the courts on September 2nd of this year
Since it is only a few days later you can still have them served with the papers and you should be okay. The courts allow a "reasonable time" after a lawsuit is filed to have the other party served.
Really? Its been ten days.
Can I rate this question and then ask you another one on this same chat
