#1 - VIP! - if you just received the judgment, you should consider petitioning to open the judgment, which some counties deem automatic if filed within 10 days of entry of judgment. If you timely file the petition to open the judgment and have a meritorious defense (i.e. suing for the wrong amount), then you can open the judgment and ask for a hearing, in which case, they may have a difficult time producing a live witness to testify on the account and thus, MIGHT, not be able to prove their...
Yes. Bank and certain investment accounts can be frozen by creditors. However, this can only be done once a judgment is first entered. A credit agency simply trying to collect money without a judgment CANNOT freeze your bank account (IRS excluded).
Once a judgment is in place, then the judgment creditor can issue a writ of execution and serve the bank with interrogatories which then freezes the account. Then there are exemptions and exclusions to consider.
Hope this helps.
It all comes down to what you can actually prove. What do the records show? If the records do not support your contentions, then it is a he-said / she-said and makes it a very tough case. Not to mention that you would need experts and they are expensive.
Yes - but without harm suffered, your damages are limited. I am certainly curious as to which borough it is, as I also serve on a borough council in Allegheny County, PA. What might be a better option is a protection from abuse order if indeed you fear for your safety. I would not recommend a civil action without actual physical harm, but you should document the threats thoroughly and if you truly feel you are in danger then I would seek a protection from abuse order.
I have a lot of experience litigating plastic surgery and breast cases. Infections are common, but can also be caused by surgeon error. You need to get a copy of your records and before & after pictures. Your breasts probably can be fixed by a board certified plastic surgeon. Let us know if you want us to review your case.
Probably not. In fact, you may have consented to the additional cut if it was necessary for the birth and depending upon the consent forms. Also , highly unlikely an attorney would take the case based upon the limited damages.
It certainly sounds like there was an opportunity to diagnose and assess your daughters condition in a more timely manner which could have prevented the risk to her baby and herself. For now, she needs to remain focused on her health and the health of the baby. However, I would try to request the records sooner than later, because I know for fact that hospital records can be changed. If you have any questions, or need help, please feel free to call me.
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.
No. In order to sell real estate in Pennsylvania, all owners on the deed must execute the deed, unless a power of attorney is signed and approved for one or more of the owners. Hope this helps.
