    Check the status on the unified court website or e-law to see if it was dismissed. If it was dismissed, you need to make a motion to restore. There is a possibility the Court may have adjourned it.

    The age of the plaintiff would be considered as it relates to future pain and suffering and special damages such as future lost earnings and future medical expenses.

    I agree with much of what was already said above----However, let's assume that you did have pre-existing conditions prior to the accident. The defendant would also be on the hook for exacerbating any of the pre-accident conditions. Just so you know, in almost ever case they claim that the injuries are degenerative. Their doctors are paid by the insurance companies. If they agreed with your doctors all of the time, they would not get repeat business from the carriers and law firms.

    Under most circumstances, I would say the answer is that a hearing is required unless the basis for holding you in contempt is failure to appear in Court.
