    Since I practice in Ohio I find myself seeing this more and more. The insurance companies will do anything they can NOT to pay a claim. The insurance companies have no morals or conscious. They hope you give up and go away. Don't! You are deserving of compensation and it is too early to settle your case anyway. Wait until you deliver and until you completely recover from your injuries. First though, hire an experienced Ohio lawyer immediately to help you. It sounds like your going to be...

    Yes. A great deal will depend on the specific language in your policy. Contact an attorney with injury and insurance experience. With injuries like your describing this is one I think is fighting for.

    How in the world is a lawyer NOT involved in your case supposed to answer that? You need to ask your lawyer why the trial date keeps changing. Typical reasons are that one party has asked for a continuance or the judge has a scheduling conflict. If you ask your lawyer he should answer you truthfully. Make it clear to him that you DO NOT want any more continuances.

  4. I was in an accident a few weeks ago. Searching for favorable third party rulings of taking testimony from a passenger.

    Not sure what you mean about third party rulings. You can take testimony from ANYONE with probative information about the accident or your injuries. The fact that you're related to the passenger is only relevant to the extent that a jury may think she's prejudice there is no doubt though that she is a competent witness. In short, you can take her testimony with her consent or by subpoena. It sounds like you probably should call an expert rather than handle this yourself.

    You need an experienced nursing home lawyer (blue link below). This is not a medical malpractice case but a nursing home negligence/wrongful death case. You have one year to file your lawsuit but prior to that an estate needs to be opened and records ordered and reviewed by an expert. I suggest you begin the process soon as employees in these nursing homes tend to change jobs frequently and securing a statement or deposition from them is often a very important part of meeting your burden of...

    Of course you can bring a lawsuit against the nursing home for wrongful death. I suggest contacting a nursing home/medical malpractice lawyer right away. The sooner you begin the process the better.

    Yes they can sue you but it would be nearly impossible to for them to win against you. In Ohio you are only liable to an injured party if YOUR negligence caused the injury. Since you weren't driving the car it was not your negligence that caused the crash it was your daughter's. A lawsuit would have to name your daughter as the negligent party. The only possible claim against you is something called "negligent entrustment" and that is when an owner of a car gives the car to someone who is...

    The lawyers on this service aren't allowed to contact you but you may contact us if you wish. In your situation you need to contact a medical malpractice attorney to obtain your wife's files and have them reviewed by an expert. Medical malpractice is a very complex area of law and there is no way to provide you with any kind of evaluation without the medical records. I'm very sorry for your recent loss and hope you are able to get your questions answered.

    Nearly all of the time it will be the vehicle pulling from the private drive into the street. Your son had a duty to yield to the traffic on the street even if that traffic was stopped. i know that sounds unfair but that's likely how this will turn out. I suggest calling your auto insurance company.

    You certainly have the right to get a lawyer. If the extent of your and your boyfriend's treatment is one ER visit or one doctor visit than a lawyer isn't really going to be able to help you. If your treatment was more extensive than that it is probasbly worth talking to a lawyer. My biggest concern would be the health of the baby. My advice is to wait to settle your case until you deliver to make sure no damage was done to your baby. The statute of limitations on your case is two years so...
