I admire your father's ingenuity for asserting the claim for diminshed value. I agree that maybe your father should have a Plaintiff's lawyer with him on the day of trial.

I agree with Mr. Stewart's answer. It is very hard to pursue a case against a dentist because medical malpractice tort reform makes the case so darn expensive.
I was successful on a case in settling a claim with a dentist prior to suit. Don't ask me how I accomplished that task. You should obtain all of your dental records on your own from Monarch dental and you should ask for an estimate in writing on what it would take to perform any dental procedures necessary to fix the problem to...
If your husband filed divorce papers, a citation has probably been issued. He may be trying to serve you, either through a private process server or a constable. If they try several times and can not find you to serve you (or you "dodge" service), your husband's lawyer can file a Motion for Substituted Service and leave the papers with anyone over 16 at your home, or on your front door.
There is also service by publication, printing a notice in the paper, for example. So it is best to...
Has a proposed final divorce decree been drafted? If it has, and your husband has signed it acknowledging his approval to the form of the decree (or his attorney if he is represented), then you should be able to set the matter for final hearing to present the final divorce decree to the Judge for approval. You will need to "prove up" the facts pertaining to the divorce in Court, that all terms are in the best interest of the children, if children are involved, that the property division is a...
There is also an immunity statute passed for emergency medical care in Texas that you would have to get around, if possible, to even proceed with a case like this. I also agree that the damages must be severe and permanent for a case like this to be economically feasible.
You can call a Plaintiff's medical malpractice attorney in your local area for a consultation.
I say this on my website, and I tell people I talk to - If you are hurt in an accident, you should go to the hospital or go to see a medical doctor for treatment. If you sit at home hurt, and get no help/treatment from a medical professional, you are doing yourself, your health, and your case a disservice.
The other attorneys are correct, it will be hard to prove that you were hurt since you never went to a doctor.
I can't tell if you have a case against Six Flags or not because your description does not address the cause of your injury in order to analyze whether Six Flags was negligent or is responsible for your injuries due to a dangerous condition on the premises that should have been remedied prior to the accident. I recommend you contact another personal injury attorney. I give free consultations over the telephone, many other lawyers do as well. Please remember that the statute of limitations...
