I was in Atv accident in sept 2014 was seriously injured was not my fault. I was not aware but the owner and driver of atv did not have proper insurance on it and have a lot of medical bills. The insurance company want to know how the accident happened and who is responsible because my medical insurance is what is taking care of the cost.
Hypothetical: I have two Defendants named, one gets
Hypothetical:I have two Defendants named, one gets dismissed in pre-trial motions. I want to appeal that dismissal and keep this Defendant in the case. How is this handled in the court? Does the whole trial await a resolution of the appeal of the dismissal?
I am composing the response to the first Motion to Dismiss.
Hi again,I am composing the response to the first Motion to Dismiss. I am concerned about attaching any documentation to my response that might be categorized but the opposition as material that was not in the original complaint (resulting in a summary judgment).The documents I want to attach are evidence of something that was alluded to in the complaint.Could you either comment on the boundaries of plaintiff's submission of materials pre-trial (or steer me to something to read that will enlighten me)?Thank you

I was seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident in
I was seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident in October and was rushed to the emergency room where I work. At the time of the injury, I had only been employed for 8 days, meaning that my health insurance coverage was inactive, pending my 30 day employment period. At the hospital I received several x-rays, an MRIJA: In what state did the injury take place? And do you have medical records or other documentation?Customer: and CT scan which were all read as normal. I ended up going to another hospital who accepted a letter of protection from my lawyer. He noted that my images were read incorrectly and I needed more serious medical therapy, including surgery. The surgery was delayed for 2 months after the accident because of the images that wee read incorrectly. The hospital originally charged me $38,000 for the ER visit. After speaking with my lawyer, they reduced the price to $15,000 in recognition of the misread imaging. However they said I would have to pay this amount and release them of any future litigation if I accept this deal. I asked my lawyer to counter offer them, and she said that there is a possibility they can reject this counter offer and I would be left having to pay the original amount depending on if the hospital is a private or public institution. Is this a law in Texas? Can that be correct? It seems like I'm being extorted by the hospital. Please help??!?JA: Has anything been filed? If so, what?Customer: Nothing has been filedJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: The person who hit me was underinsured, and therefore I only received $30,000 from his insurance for the accident. From that my lawyer received $10,000, and after paying all of my bills to the physicians who accepted the letters of protection, I was left with $4,000. I'm still in physical therapy, and I've been on medical leave without pay since Oct because of the misread imaging that the hospital lawyers agreed, in writing, happened the night of the accident in the ED. Therefore I have lost months worth of salary (I'm an anesthesiologist), and my recovery period has been twice as long as it would have been due to the incorrect diagnosis. The hospital is arguing that the $15,000 is for the use of the MRI, CT scanner andXray machine in theER. My point is that these machines were essentially useless because they were all read incorrectly.
Re: my contemplated Plaintiff's Response to Defendant's
Re: my contemplated Plaintiff's Response to Defendant's Answer to Complaint (i.e. their affirmative defenses):1. There are two defenses which I feel I can ask to have stricken; if I do that, do I need to state a denial of the other 9 defenses (which are mostly, if not all, "we reserve the right to...")?2. One of the 9 defenses that I would deny has the following statement as a second clause: "...and demand strict proof thereof." My understanding is that there is no need to respond to that clause. Is that a correct understanding?If I need to state facts in a Plaintiff's response to Defendant's affirmative defenses, do I (or should I) attach any documentation of those facts?I understand there is a prohibition against introducing material that was not in the original Complaint for risk of that becoming a "request for summary judgement." If I introduce new material in the Response to Defendant's affirmative defenses, does that constitute that kind of introduction of material?
I'm low-income and have just been diagnosed with a medical
I'm low-income and have just been diagnosed with a medical condition that is a disability under the ADA. In addition, I have been in two accidents over the last two months, both of which entailed distracted drivers hitting my car (they were at fault, not me; thankfully, both admitted it on the spot, and the second time, a police officer witnessed the entire thing and wrote the other driver a ticket for failing to yield the right of way.)Finally, I have been having (easily-rectifiable) issues with my short-disability claim adjuster; she says there isn't ample evidence to support my disability claim (there is, and witnesses). Thing is I found out I have the right to request my file from her; and when she sent it over, I discovered that it contained communications between her and my company's HR department wherein she made a request for information to which she was not entitled; then, when she was turned down, effectively asked (in a roundabout way) whether they would provide her the information in the event that she denied my claim. Then several weeks later, after holding off for a while, she denied it.Question: I've heard that there are organizations that provide legal aid and representation to low-income individuals; does this include individuals injured in car accidents an/or who need assistance putting together an appeal for a disability claim?Thank you!
I was deposed on December 16 and I believe today is my last
I was deposed on December 16 and I believe today is my last day to review my testimony. In my testimony, I was shown an undated letter that I did not recognize, but I did recognize the second page as a form that I was given to fill out. I said incorrectly that I must have gotten it sometime but I was not sure.When I corrected my deposition, I changed that answer to "I don't know if I have ever seen that document before or not." I was still confused, because I recognized part of the document but not any other part.Last night I ran into the part of the document that I recognized -- it was an attachment to an email. I am pretty sure the letter itself was completely fabricated.Two questions:1. If today is my last day to modify my deposition, what could I do?2. If I am over the time I had to modify my testimony, what could I do?
