Is it considered malpractice if my former attorney failed to

Is it considered malpractice if my former attorney failed to file timely the local rule required trial documents (brief, etc), that as a result, sanctioned me adversely by the judge for any further motions/closed discovery and really costed my trial case? And also failed to file a motion prior to statute of limitation expiry for relief? I can't seem to find out nor find such an attorney to talk with.

I am a restaurant owner. I had a customer claimed he stepped

I am a restaurant owner. I had a customer claimed he stepped in a hole on my parking lot and injured severely on April 2015. He filed a law suit and his lawyer was trying to settle with the liability insurance defense lawyer. The plaintiff has demanded the policy limits, which is 1 million dollar. But the medial bill total is $42,702. The plaintiff claimed the injury created shoulder and neck pain, lost ability perform house duties and sex life changed. We didn't have camera out side at that moment no witness either. I wonder if this claim gonna affect me anything, like the insurance rate goes up in the future, if the insurance company decide to accept the settlement. The then cook on duty that day told me she talked to the plaintiff, and the plaintiff said he was trying to step down the cement and fell and he did not mention the hole, as we know the hole was not deep. If the insurance company decide to take on trial, is that possible the result end up pay over 1million, and I lose my business? What should I do to protect myself either from the insurance company or the plaintiff?

This has to do with health Insurance. My doctor wanted me to

This has to do with health Insurance.JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: My doctor wanted me to take a certain medication, due to myJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: This has to do with health insurance. My doctor wanted me to take a medication for high cholesterol. Due to the fact that I have multiple illnesses, there are a number of meds. I am allergic to. So now I am down to the last medication out there that I can take. It is an injection and very expensive. High cholesterol runs in my family. I have been on all the cholesterol meds in pill form and have a high allergic reaction due to, I feel the multiple illnesses. I have even tried natural remedies and eating greens for 6 months and only brought my cholesterol points down about 6 numbers. At this point my cholesterol is in the 400 range and my doctor is really worried I might have a stroke. So she wants me on these injections. At the end of last year I was approved and I started taking the injections and started feeling really good. And for the first time had a normal blood count for cholesterol. This year I change to Banner Health on insurance, and they denied me for the medication. My doctor appealed it. I got a call from her last Thursday. She said Banner denied again and said I have to take one the medication that I am allergic to and they told her they are ok that if given it did not mater to them that I end up in the hospital with severe symptoms and unable to walk. They needed to see my blood work on that medication and if my cholesterolJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: did not go down she needed to put me on a second cholesterol med that I am allergic to and it did not mater to them the severity of the symptoms. They need the blood work. My question it this, Do I have any legal position on this with the Insurance company, that they are asking my doctor to do bodily harm to me. My doctor said she will not do as they ask, She is still worried of me stroking out. But I am upset the Insurance company has no problem asking a doctor to inflict bodily harm to me. The medication they want me to take , send me to a wheel chair. and maybe permanently. With my illnesses, one of them I have been working very hard the last 8 years trying to stay out of a wheel chair. Debbie

I was involved in an auto collision at the end of 2015 where

I was involved in an auto collision at the end of 2015 where the other driver was as fault in state of California. Due to the collision, I was required to go to physical therapy​ for two months.My car insurance company required me to use my personal insurance first and any other expenses would be covered by them. They informed me I would have to pay them back for the medical expenses if I settled. I negotiated for an amount based on this understanding and reimbursed the auto insurance company from the settlement.My previous medical insurance company recently contacted me stating they are owed for the medical expenses caused by the other driver from the settlement. They said they did not contact me to inform me of this because there was not sufficient time prior to the settlement to contact me. The period from the accident to settlement was 10 months.When negotiating the settlement, the expenses taken into consideration were the ones expected to be in reimbursed to the car insurance company. Had I been informed I would be obligated to also reimburse the medical insurance company, I would have been able to negotiate a higher settlement with this information.My question is am I legally obligated to pay the medical insurance company or are there certain circumstances where I an exempted from paying?

This is regarding an auto accident in California, and

This is regarding an auto accident in California, and requesting a settlement from the insurance company for personal injury.Went to the emergency room for the accident.My question is threefold:1) When requesting the amount: do I include the amount that the Hospital itself is billing or just the amount my health insurance paid the hospital. Obviously the hospital bill is much larger than what the insurance carrier paid, so I would like to include the former.2) If my emergency room payment was taken care of by my health insurance, since they have an agreement with the hospital to only pay a fractional amount of the total hospital bill, can the hospital claim the difference against the settlement I receive?3) After I settle with the insurance company, and my health insurance is asking for the return of money it paid, what are the best methods to negotiate that amount down (assuming I did not hire an attorney, i.e, cannot use the common fund/split attorney fees doctrine). One such example I have heard of is the made whole doctrine. Are there any other such doctrines or negotiating tactics?
