  • What is a 1st party and a 3rd party in an auto accedent

    What do u call when someone was in a passenger seat and a car hit her ? Is that 3rd party or 1st party I got hit by two cars

    John’s Answer

    First party simply means both parties to a contract i.e. the auto insurance company and its insured. Usually those claims are for medical expenses, wage loss, household services, etc. Third party means someone else became involved other than the first two parties in a contract, i.e another driver that causes the accident. Those cases typically involve non economic damages, i.e. pain and suffering and inability to perform your normal daily activities.

  • Since there is a cap on how much you can receive for negligence and there is a cap. Can you sue the same place twice?

    A hospital killed my husband last year and I already gave a suit going. These doctors were absolutely negligent and I want them to pay dearly.

    John’s Answer

    Firs you should discuss your case with your attorney. But generally speaking, you are unable to sue a defendant more than one time for a particular occurrence. All theories of liability must be brought in the one action. If this were not so, there would be no finality at the end of a lawsuit and the plaintiff could sue the defendant time and time again "ad infinitum" (for eternity).

  • If a passenger was injured and hit his head in the windsheild and his face had open cut from windsheild what do u call that

    I flew in the windsheild I was in a backseat no seatbelt and had 9 stitches in my head. What do u call that? Is that called closed head injury. I got mri done but mri came normal. So do I still call that closed head injury plz help

    John’s Answer

    Actually this would be a scarring issue. Significant scarring does meet the no fault threshold of serious impairment in order to make a claim against the at fault driver. If you are feeling concussive like symptoms even though he the mri is negative, you may then have a closed head injury.
