  • How do I go about getting a judgment for 7000.00 from a person getting a large amount of money from a lawsuit?

    Rented my home to Crystal Thompson and David Haney 2009-2009. The judge awarded me $7000.00 for back rent and damages (ie stole my dryer, threw dead fish all over and literally threw poop all over the bathroom) I have spoken to his current lawy...

    Noah’s Answer

    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 garnish monies from third parties.

    It sounds collectible if done right. In addition, you would maintain rights against the original debtors after they receive their settlement proceeds of course as well.

    Good Luck

  • I recently settled a lawsuit. The party then sued me again for another fee they claimed due to the firm.

    Is there some restriction for not having included the fees from the 2nd suit in the first suit? To be more specific, in the first suit they sued for $35,000 and we settled for $12,000. Within days after we paid, they filed saying I owed another...

    Noah’s Answer

    First - make sure you file a response to the lawsuit and do NOT let them take a default judgment against you. Second, if you file a response you should plead the affirmative defense of accord and satisfaction if indeed the first settlement included the cause of action for the second debt. I would get a consult from an attorney and let them review all of the information, but be sure you file a Answer and New Matter to this New Complaint or you may lose rights.

    good luck

  • A mother of a teen discovers info of an underage drinking party on her daughters computer. Is the mother negligent ?

    The mom read her daughters computer and stopped her from going to the party. The daughter made the alcohol connection and after being found out, transferred that info to her girl friend who picked up the alcohol. At the party a bunch of teens dran...

    Noah’s Answer

    First - I am very sorry for your loss. I can't even imagine.

    There could be numerous theories as to why the owners of the home would be legally responsible. If the owners of the house provided the alcohol or knew it existed and failed to protect the kids, they should be help legally responsible. Also, I doubt this is the first time their daughter was drinking at home or had friends over. What did they do to prevent this from happening?

    I would encourage you to have the matter fully evaluated. More often than not, these cases are covered by the homeowners insurance.

    I would talk to several lawyers before hiring one and I hope your family is okay.

  • Can i sue the drs and two hospitals?

    my husband went into the hospital june 29th this year. very very healthy. barely drank, no smoking for many yrs. ate healthy. he had acute pancreatitis. stayed two weeks and never seem to get much better. his infection blood count was extrememly h...

    Noah’s Answer

    It depends on whether there was a deviation from the standard of care. Infection cases are difficult but if the infection was caused by poor care - then yes - you may have a case. You should request all records and have them reviewed by a licensed PA malpractice attorney. That is the only way you will know for sure if you have a case. Remember the statute of limitations in PA is 2 years.

    Noah’s Answer

    Maybe the defendant was acting in the Scope of his employment. This could provide additional insurance. You can also always try to obtain a judgment and execute on personal assets if the award is higher than the policy limits. Hope this helps. Noah

  • What is a fair percentage for attorney fees in a medical malpractice case?

    I was quoted 40% off the gross of any winnings (not net) with fees for physicians, psychologists, accountants and other experts deemed necessary for the case as well as copying charges, travel expenses, court costs, deposition expenses, long dista...

    Noah’s Answer

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

  • Is it OK to approach a Dr first before getting attorneys involved on how he can "make it right" w/ a medical malpractice issue?

    Permanent loss of vision due to no timely appropriate treatment given related to misdiagnosis. Could it be detrimental in any way to a case should the Dr. not comply with negotiating something outside of the legal system?

    Noah’s Answer

    Be careful. The doctor has little or no authority to negotiate without his insurance carrier. You need to know that it is all a big game and you can't think that they will play fair if you approach him. I think it is usually okay to ask what happened but you are much better off talking to a lawyer first before just shooting from the hip. Good luck noah

    Noah’s Answer

    I would start by finding a New Jersey attorney first. The jurisdiction of any case and the choice of law may depend upon where the defendant resides. But if the accident occurred in New Jersey, and that is where the defendant resides, then I would contact a New Jersey attorney first.

    good luck

  • Should I pay a Walmart civil demand letter?

    I received a civil demand letter from Walmart for $150. This is after my case was disposed, I agreed to plead guilty to a summary offense, and paid $65 in restitution for opened merch, the rest of the merch was recovered undamaged or opened (total...

    Noah’s Answer

    I would be very very very surprised if Walmart sues over $150. Certainly respond to any court notices received, but you are under no legal obligation to respond to a simple demand letter.
