    Pass the notices along to your insurance carrier who will hire a lawyer to represent you should you be sued. Your auto insurance policy will provide you with a defense and indemnify you from this claim up to the limits of your insurance policy. Just make sure that you give them timely notice of the claim and do nothing to jeopardize their defense of the claim so that you do not give them any policy defenses to deny coverage of the claim.

    The threshold question in gym injury cases is whether you signed a waiver of liability form when you entered the gym or started your membership there. The next question is whether you can prove that the equipment was defective. Not every gym injury is due to defective equipment. It could have been due to improper maintenance of the equipment which could be covered by the waiver of liability form that you probably signed. Regards, Mark L.

    If you were a patient in a nursing home then they can charge you for your medical records based upon a flat fee plus a per page rate which is governed by statute in Illinois. If you have an injury claim for something that occurred in the nursing home then you should immediately consult with an attorney who represents clients in nursing home neglect cases. My law firm regularly handles these claims and I would be happy to direct you.

    His recourse is to hire a lawyer to investigate whether the statute of limitations will permit him to pursue his independent claims. If the statue of limitations has not yet run and there is insurance with either the at fault driver or as an uninsured motorists claim then he still has his right to proceed with his claims.

    In the usual scenario, BCBS normally pays "in network" medical providers a contract rate and not the full face value of a doctor or hospital bill. Sometimes they only pay as little as 30 percent of the face value of a bill. Under the terms of the BCBS insurance policy, there is usually a contractual right of reimbursement. (Although I have seen at least one Plan that did not have any reimbursement provision). This is known as the legal doctrine of Subrogation. This typically requires the...

    If you have Medical Pyments coverage on your automobile insurance policy then you should get at least some of your medical bills covered. More importantly, you may have a claim against the property owner for failure to maintain their property. That claim may entitle you to seek damages for your medical bills, pain and suffering, loss of normal life, lost earnings and any disfigurement.
