    the question calls for a response relevant to affix and interpretation I love the disclosure requirements. You did not disclose the type of job that you have. If the type of job that you have involves a high level of security, then the interpretation of the information that you must disclose will probably include everything including deferred prosecution. The best bet is probably to speak directly to your employer about the situation for and interpretation as to whether disclosure is required.

  • How can I go after the hospital for the reason my mother died?

    My mom died after 32 days in the hospital due to what they say was a pulmonary embolism. She was 52yrs old. Her autopsy report states that she had all of her natural teeth in good condition (she had full dentures), it states her gall bladder, sple...

    Brett’s Answer

    You should first contact the entity that performed the autopsy, which could have been the medical examiner or the hospital depending on the laws in your jurisdiction. Politely ask for an in person meeting. Ask them, "What happened to my mother? Could this have been prevented? How?" The answers to these critical questions may lead you to finding peace, or finding fault with your mother's care givers. My condolences for your loss.

    Asking lawyers to answer this question is like asking Dr. Drew a legal question. Wait a minute. Dr. Drew's show seems to be focused solely on legal cases now. Oh well, I guess I can offer my two cents. You committed a major offense of morality, and inflicted a serious wound to this woman. Your actions may destroy her family. Pack up your remaining dignity and move far away. Your absence will be a wonderful gift to this woman and her family.

  • Can you fight an open container violation under 39:4-51B if you were parked in a parking lot and the car was off?

    The vehicle was parked in a parking lot and it is to my knowledge that 39:4-51B require the car to be on a highway or right of way.

    Brett’s Answer

    Yes. Here's another way to win this. You or your lawyer should file a motion to suppress the evidence. There is no way a police officer can determine if your container contained alcohol by looking at it from outside your car. The fact that you had a glass or bottle in your hand does not give the the cop probable cause to stop you and ask you questions. I won a case identical to this years ago. Your offense is minor, and I bet the judge will rule in your favor. Good luck!

  • I was at a group fitness class at the gym and got Injured, the MRI shows a herniated disc compressing the nerves,

    Can I get compensation for my medical bills and disability time?

    Brett’s Answer

    Just because you were injured does not mean someone has to pay your bills or compensate you. Exercise, walking, riding a bike, etc. are all activities that involve some type of risk. No risk, no reward. I suggest you seek excellent medical care, get better, and find a low impact exercise that you like, such as swimming, and develop a passion for that sport. Good luck!

    Brett’s Answer

    The issue here is damages. You did not mention anything about any permanent injuries. Therefore, this may be the reason all the lawyers have turned you down. Lawsuits are for serious injuries. If you have fully recovered, then you have no, or only minimal, damages. If so, you have no case. Sometimes we have to accept unfortunate episodes in life and move on. I suggest you do that.

  • Property damage

    When i got in my accident a yr ago the at faults insurance agreed to do an estimate which they did then the at fault started lying and they pushed property damage off.The at fault insurance then after a yr settled and payed out,I had secratary as...

    Brett’s Answer

    You cannot control the actions on an insurance company, but you can sue the driver that caused the accident. Then, the insurance company must defend that driver and pay the damages. In your case, you may have been partially at fault, and for this reason, the insurance company is only paying you a portion of your damages. Small cases like this are difficult to litigate because the cost of the litigation may exceed the amount of money you recovery. You should consider re evaluating the case, and decide whether it is best to accept the settlement. Otherwise, you will have to pay a lawyer to file suit, and the attorney fee and filing fee may exceed what you might get on your best day in court.

    Brett’s Answer

    The attorneys who recommended you discuss this with your attorney, and not publish your concerns gave you the most proper responses. To answer your question, all bills can be negotiated, and a doctor who is in trouble is likely to be very generous in their negotiations with you. Your lawyer will present you with a closing statement that shows payment of negotiated medical bills and your net settlement. If it meets your expectations, you sign it and the case is closed. If you do not accept the bottom line, you can reject the settlement. I am sure you and your attorney can work this out.
