I was in an auto accident resulting in severe injuries

I was in an auto accident resulting in severe injuries admittedly by the other driver who ignored the law intentionally ,which led to a cervical fusion surgery. The case went to court and I was not awarded the full recovery costs by the jury. I am now wondering as the jury told my attorneys that why would have awarded punitive damages if they could have but were not allowed to. The driver is insured by AIG and they offered us $350K to settle prior to court , which we turned down due to medical expenses were about 80K -100K . Can I still sue him individually for these costs and his reckless driving?

On 05/19/16 went to receive a series of vaccines trip to

On 05/19/16 went to receive a series of vaccines for my trip to China. I received several shots in the arms. I received MMR, Hep B, and a menigitis vaccine. i received an unnecessary vaccine by a nurse by accident. It was Prevax vaccine. She meant to give me Menactra. I was notified by the manager of the clinic on 06/01/15 of the mistake. I went in 06/02/15 to take the correct vaccine as well as the flu vaccine. Same Nurse reminded me that I had to take a second shot of Hep B. My appt was for 06/15/16 to take Hep B shot because my trip was the next day. Went in on 06/15/16 Same nurse gave me the shot for the 3rd time. I assumed it was the Hep B for which i came. I immediately had a reaction. I felt like something went up my nose. It started burning and tingling. I grabbed my throat. It felt like i could hardly breathe and something was in my throat. I told the nurse immediately as this was unfolding. She did nothing other than to say come wait outside in the waiting area until i complete the other part of your paper work. By the time the nurse got back I was crapping (diarrhea) on myself. I tried hurrying to the bathroom but didnt make it. It was on.I clean myself up. Threw away my underwear and left the clinic. Went home, still had diarrhea, felt dizzy and laid down to rest. Received call later that day from the doctor that the Nurse had given me the wrong vaccine again. Dr wanted to know how i was doing. the Nurse never mentioned to her what I had experienced earlier that day. Dr was without words. Dr asked me to come in to be examined. Dr. ask when i was going to China. I told her in less***** didnt think this was a good idea do to the symthons.Needless to say. The symthons continued for another day and I wasnt able to make my trip that I had already paid for. Due to the gross neglience of the nurse, i was administered 2 unnecessary vaccines. After all this, they only fired the nurse at my request. She was still there when i came to be examined. I just couldnt believe what i was seeing. This nurse has twice given me the wrong vaccine and she's still working. There is a standard of care that all patients should be receiving and I wasnt given that.Dr. called the drug mfg and CDC about possible drug overdose. Nobody really had any answers. I worried about my health and the possible side effects and long term affect of this drug.My question is What should i do? Should I be seeing another Dr. What kind of Dr.? And should i sue and be compensated for my loss. Especially the trip and time taken off work. What else kind of compensation should I be expecting? I live in Texas and since 2003 it was been very difficult to sue.

Believe it or not, I, a physician, am suing an attorney . He

Believe it or not, I, a physician, am suing an attorney for malpractice. He actually tried to sabotage my case. I have many examples, but one is this: After my demurrer was overruled, he told me that we were not supposed to answer the complaint. I told him that made no sense, but he ignored me. I did my own research to find out that this was not true. Second, he taunted me by text throughout the time I had a contract with him. He would not answer any questions, but he would say things like, "oh no! You should see what Mr. Baker is saying now! Then when I would ask, he would ignore me. He seemed to be enjoying frightening me. I wish I was kidding.I am an expert witness, and he also slandered me. He accused me of quitting a case when he was not prepared, and lied to an attorney friend of mine about me (and probably others.) I have reason to believe he has written items and forged my signature on Court documents as well.My question is this: do I have any cause of action other than malpractice and libel/slander? He has gone way beyond that.I do not expect to make much money off of this very legitimate case, but I need the Judge to know how badly I have been represented adn allow me to amend my Cross complaint in the case that he sabotaged. Thanks for your help.

I have two unrelated questions #1 Jurisdiction is , D.C.

I have two unrelated questions#1 Jurisdiction is Washington, D.C. Superior Court. I have to respond to a motion to compel. The opposing party e filed their motion. How many days do I have to respond. In particular, does the additional 3 days for response apply or not apply when their motion is required to be emailed#2. Jurisdiction, Virginia-Specifically City of Alexandria. I have a potential client and confused as to the following: She was driving her car on a day where it had been some snow and ice accumulating. She lives in an apartment building in Alexandria that has under ground parking. When she arrivedat her building she turned in to the driveway leading down to the garage door.Unfortunately, the ice and snow which had not been removed caused her vehicle to slide into the closed garage door and end up hitting concrete post in the garage. My understanding is that with regard to the public streets etc there is a time limit for when such hazards have to be dealt with. However, in this private apartment situation -where the apartment had a contracted property manager, do these time limits apply or is there a more general manner in which the time limit or duty is addressed by the courts.
