    There is no debtor prison in Pennsylvania. If it is only money owed, then the creditor could try to obtain a monetary judgment against you but would still have to execute on your bank account and/or personal items in order to collect. You need to make sure that you file a response if a lawsuit is filed. I do not know all of the facts, but I do not believe a judge would be able to order a payment plan unless it is a criminal matter and it does not sound like one. You can ask the collection...

    NO! This does not seem legal. If you already have a judgment against you, you should NOT be sued separately for the same debt. If they try, you may have legal recourse for violations of the FDCPA (Fair Debt Collection Practices Act). I would be happy to review the letter and advise you of your legal rights. thanks Noah Paul Fardo, Esq. 412.802.6666

    Marital property is exempt from execution in Pennsylvania. If the judgment is only against you, and the account is registered as a 'marital' account, the bank should not freeze or allow garnishment of the account. However, I have seen banks erroneously freeze marital accounts, and while still not releasing the money, have created inconvenience and costs to their customers. Also, even if it is designated as a 'marital' account, the creditor may place objections and request a hearing on the...

    Medical Malpractice cases are almost always 40% fees unless liability is obvious and damages are very severe. But, isn't everything in life negotiable.

    Yes. You can still buy it - but would take title to the property taxes. You need to order a Title Search first to make sure you know what liens are on the property before purchasing. thanks noah

    The answer is possibly. It sounds like a difficult case. The reason is you would have to show that the radiation from the CT Scan caused the miscarriage. This will often come down the amount of RADS you received. Often, a single CT Scan will not produce enough radiation to harm a fetus, but it can. Also, it may depend upon the status of your pregnancy. I would definitely request the medical records and have them reviewed by an attorney with access to Physicians. I would also ask as...

    If suit has not been filed and you believe the debt is past the statute of Limitations (SOL) I would do one of 2 things. First, you could choose to have no contact with them and (if) they ever file suit, be sure to plead SOL as an affirmative defense. Simply because the SOL has expired does not mean you cannot still be sued. You must respond if suit is filed. But if suit has not been filed, you are under no obligation to speak or communicate with the creditor. In the alternative, you...

    I would strongly consider informing the police and potentially filing a PFA (Protection From Abuse) immediately. If the police do not help, you should consider informing the district attorney at your local magistrate's office to see if they believe an harassment charge is warranted. It sounds serious, and I would treat it as such. thanks noah

    In short, hospitals and doctors have a legal obligation to treat and render proper care to patients under their care and supervision. If they are refusing to render proper care to a patient under their care, then yes, they can potentially be sued. However, you would have to prove: 1. There was a legal obligation to provide care. 2. The defendants deviated from the acceptable standard of care. and 3. The deviation was the direct and proximate result of any additional harm suffered....
