Yes - it is legal for doctors to write their medical opinions - which may include opinions about your past use of prescription medications. I understand you do not like their terms - but those are the medical terms for consistent habitual use.
Unless, you can show that the records are false and that the doctors intentionally made false written remarks in an effort to harm your reputation, I would not waste any time worrying about it. Indeed, your records should be confidential and...
To answer your question simply, yes it is legal for doctors to discontinue medication. If you are worried, you can seek a second and/or third opinion. If you are take off medication, and another doctor is willing to state it was a deviation from the acceptable standard of care and you were caused harm ,then you may have a case.
If you have a judgment from a magistrate's office in Pennsylvania, and you want to ensure that the judgment acts as a lien against any real property the defendant owns, then you need to transfer the Magistrate's judgment into the court of common pleas of the county where the defendant owns property. You may have to transfer the judgment to several counties separately if the defendant owns property in multiple counties. Ask the magistrates office for a sealed copy of the judgment and bring...
They can transfer the PA judgment to New York, or just sue you in New York. Now if they sue you in New York, as opposed to transferring the judgment, then you need to plead affirmative defenses and their actions might be a violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act since there is already a judgement in place on the debt. The judgment must have been sold and and now a new company is trying to collect. Save all evidence, you may have claims against them based on their communications....
I would start with the police and hopefully they participate in an investigation on your behalf. It sounds like a difficult civil action for wrongful death, but most lawyers will give you a free consultation. The question is, how is someone else responsible for the heroin.
1. The writ must be served in 90 days or expires and can be reissued.
2. They are required to attempt it, but debtors can obviously make service difficult.
3. Only if the Plaintiff paid the extra money to levy on the vehicle.
4. Yes. You can always settle, though I am not sure it always makes sense in cases where a debtor is not worried about their credit or judgment proof.
We would still need more information. Age, job, loss of income, amount of medicals bills (past and future), seriousness of the cuts, scarring, impact on enjoyment of life, impact on future limitations to work, earn, hobbies, spend time with family etc etc etc - there are so many variables that can affect the value (location, jury pool, physical demeanor, personality, color of skin, family situation, and on and on and on - HOWEVER I will say, with providing those words of caution, pelvis...
I can tell you exactly what you need to do.
1. First, make sure your judgment is entered in the county where the debtor resides.
2. Issue a Writ of execution and serve their personal injury lawyer with interrogatories in aid of execution. Once served - their lawyer must tell you if he is holding any money for his clients. If he is, then he must maintain those accounts until your debt is paid.
Timing is very important here and you need to hire a debt collection attorney who know how to...
You may be able to get court costs if a judgment was entered. But you do not get late or penalty fees. Typically a settlement payment is paid within 30 days. If they refuse to pay based on a court order, you may be able to petition to enforce the settlement and ask for sanctions for failure to pay.
