  • Should I fight the other party's auto insurance if he was 50% at fault for an accident?

    A truck pulled out in front of me without his lights on and I immediately hit him. It was dark and ten o'clock at night. He said "sorry, I didn't see you when I pulled out." Can I collect on his mini-tort coverage with Allstate Insurance?

    Chad’s Answer

    I would say you should try collecting under a mini-tort claim. Please see Michigan Auto Law attorney Thomas James' excellent AVVO legal guide to filing a Mini-tort Claim.

    You need to notify your insurance company Right away and they should assign you counsel. If you fail to notify them, you could substantially compromise your coverage.

    My wife was at the doctors office with my son because he had passed out at work and he was taken to hospital a week later he was complaining that he had pain in his chest so she took him to the family doctor and he made them sit there in the waiti...

    Chad’s Answer

    I respectfully suggest you consult with a qualified malpractice attorney before any such meeting. What actions should have been taken by the family practitioner depends on the details of your son's medical history and presentation. In particular, was his chest pain consisted with a cardiac issue. Further, if there was any harm by the delay is a critical question, what was the ultimate outcome?

    Generally, I would ask for an explanation for the delay and the staff's actions. Who was responsible. I would also ask why your son was not referred for emergency medical service, and what the doctor's office's capabilities are to diagnose and treat a cardiac emergency.

    A fraud can be grounds to modify a judgment of divorce. You should consult with a qualified family law attorney. You should act quickly since there are time limits that may bar your ability to bring this matter back before the judge if not timely pursued.

  • I want to submit a recording that I took of a doctor, without his knowledge, to the Sate Medical board?

    What are the ramifications for doing this? I'm reporting the doctor for severe negligence that will leave me sick for the rest of my life and this tape backs up my claims.

    Chad’s Answer

    Under some State's laws, unconsented recording of conversations constitutes a crime. I am not a California attorney, but a simple Internet search seems to indicate that CA is such a 2 party consent state. You should seek the advice of a qualified medical malpractice attorney.
