    The above responding attorneys are correct and I would also advise you to contact a CT personal injury attorney because the notice must contain certain detailed information in order to be valid. Depending upon what caused the crack, you might also have a claim against the abutting property owner. Good luck to you.

    I agree with the prior answers - you should definitely speak with a personal injury attorney regarding your case. The law provides a limited amount of time within which to bring a claim, two years with respect to an accident case. You should not delay any further so that an attorney can properly obtain and preserve the necessary evidence to best present your case. Good luck to you.

    A subpoena requires that you appear at the date and time stated in the subpoena and must give you reasonable notice of that date in order for you to appear. Most attorneys are willing to work with a non-party's availability in scheduling the deposition; however, you must contact the attorney who issued the subpoena to make those arrangements. Once a deposition begins, it generally is concluded and is not stopped unless you are being subjected to abusive or embarrasing questions. As the...

    As one of the other responding attorneys stated, you should not expect the offer to be very much. It would be in your interest to speak to a local personal injury attorney prior to agreeing to accept whatever the offer is to be sure your daughter is adequately compensated for her injuries. I would be happy to discuss this matter with you further. My office number is (203) 265-2035 or you can visit my firm's website at www.lflaw.com. Best of luck to you and your daughter.

  5. CT Couple with business and debt. Who's responsible?

    I agree with Attorney Serrano's answer that just because the house and credit cards are in your name, they are not necessarily your responsibility alone but may be deemed joint debts. Whoever is living in the house may be required to keep up the payments after the divorce. Your and your husband's entire financial portfolio would be considered in a divorce and in splitting up assets and determining if either of you has to pay the other alimony.

  6. What does default failure to comply w/ discovery mean?

    1. James C Wing JR
    2. Eileen R Becker
    2 lawyer answers

    The plaintiff's lawyer is trying to get information and documents from you through your lawyer, that is called discovery. The plaintiff apparently has not yet been provided this information and so filed a motion with the court to force your lawyer to provide this information by asking the court to enter a default - meaning the plaintiff wins his case against you without going to trial -- as a punishment for the information not being provided. The court is unlikely to grant a default, but...

    Whether or not you need your own lawyer would depend in part on how much insurance coverage you have and what damages the other party sustained and/or is suing you for. You should discuss this with the lawyer hired by your insurance company. Generally speaking, if you have enough insurance to cover what the other person is claiming, you would not need your own lawyer. You would have to pay out of your own pocket any lawyer you hire on your own, whereas the insurance company is paying the...

  8. If you hit someone with a golf ball by accident on a public golf course are you liable

    It depends upon tthe circumstances of what happened and what you mean by "hit ..by accident". Whether you are liable depends upon whether you were negligent, i.e. not acting with reasonable care for the safety of others on the course at the time of the incident. Simply because someone was hit with a golf ball does not mean the person who hit the ball was negligent. A bad shot that injures another does not of itself establish negligence but it may if the golfer has a propensity to shank golf...

    If you have ample insurance coverage, then you will be fine. If you do not, then you may need to hire personal counsel to protect any assets you have. The other party had to sue you to get at your insurance coverage and that is why you are named in the lawsuit and not your insurance company. Your insuance company and the lawyer they have hired to represent you will handle the lawsuit. It is important that you cooperate with the lawyer who has been hired to represent you in New Hampshire so...
