In Florida, I have my own policy with 1 car on it. But the car is technically owned by my mom (her name is ***** ***** title). She never drives the car as it is my car to drive and I live in a different city then her in Florida. She has her own insurance policy on her car she drives daily. Both policys happen to be the same provider. Now, if i get in an accident can my mom get sued because she is the title owner of it? Even though i have a insurance policy on the car in my name.

I went to Berger Hospital in Circleville Ohio On Christmas

I went to Berger Hospital in Circleville Ohio On Christmas Eve because a took a fall down some stairs. One of my teeth from my top denture went thru my top lip. The hospital took 3 different scans which I didn't know they were even taking because I was in so much pain and wouldn't have let them take because I was uninsured . All I needed was for the tooth to be extracted from my lip, which I thought was done. On January 16 the right side of my mouth was still hurting and I discovered they had not got all of my tooth out of my lip. Now they are trying to charge me for scans that were not needed and a job that was not completed. I applied for financial help because I am uninsured and I on a fixed income and they declined it. I want to know if their is anything I can do about their fee and the fact that they did not do their job.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: It is in OhioJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I filled out a paper that they sent for financial aid and sent in back in. They contacted me today and said I was denied.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no

Is it 'acceptable' for a personal injury retainer agreement

Is it 'acceptable' for a personal injury retainer agreement to state that a client will be responsible for all fees and associated costs in the event that the client terminates the relationship (even if there's no recovery) without defining any terms or grounds for said termination? In other words, shouldn't a contract specifically define the circumstances under which the client is seeking to terminate? I understand that an attorney who leaves a case in progress has a 'lien' against any future recovery, but what if the attorney's conduct is questionable, or he/she isn't performing - and the client wants other representation? I'm looking at such an agreement now, and it does spell out what happens in the event that the attorney withdraws and another attorney takes over, but the language seem ambiguous if it's the client seeks to terminate the relationship, which raises serious concerns about signing it.
