    You can have the sheriff serve the writ on every bank in the area where your friend may have a bank account and the bank is required to stop all withdraws on the account and turn the money owed over to you. You should either go to a lawyer or if that is economically not feasible go to your county sheriff's office and ask if they can help with execute on the judgment. Good luck.

    As I understand your situation your attorney originally filed suit claiming the damages were less below whatever the threshold amount for mandatory state court arbitration. You then insisted that he ask to amend the complaint to please an amount of damages in excess of the the amount for mandatory state court arbitration. When that was done your former employee moved to remove the case to federal court based on diversity jurisdiction. Federal court does have mediation and arbitration programs....

    Even if the hospital was negligent in failing to do the proper testing to diagnose your concussion, it seems that you eventually were treated and hopefully have recovered. If that is the case then there can be no malpractice lawsuit. As other have suggested you may want to consult a WV personal injury attorney to see if you may have a claim as a result of the auto accident.

    Although I don't practice in NC, your future husband could not be included in the lawsuite unless he owned the car you were driving. If you had insurance, I would expect that your insurance coverage would protect any personal assets. If you don't own have any ownership in the house, I don't see how they could go after your fiancees home. If you have insurance and are sued the insurance company will provide you with a lawyer who can answer these questions for you. If you don't have insurance,...

    If the case is in Federal Court the Court will mandate the parties engage in mediation. In state court both sides have to agree. Generally since the defendant has the money they need to be the one to suggest mediation.

  9. Can an employer give comp time off in lew of paying time and a half over 40

    As stated by the US Department of Labor website employers are required to pay at least 1 and a half time the regular pay for any hours worked over 40. http://www.dol.gov/dol/topic/wages/overtimepay.htm If your employer is not doing so you should contact a lawyer in your area. The Pennsylvania Wage Payment and Collection Law provides for attorneys fees and triple damage in instances where the employer is not properly paying wages. Good luck.

    As a lawyer in Pittsburgh who has experience in handling medical malpractice cases where Coumadin has been prescribed to patients I have learned that Coumadin places people at an increased risk for internal bleeding. Therefore patients on Coumadin need to have regular periodic blood tests. In order to know whether the nursing home provided substandard medical car to your mother a medical expert would have to review her records. You should contact a lawyer in Pittsurgh who has...
