    This is all very standard. Remember that the lawyer has a client who has a family with a lost loved one. Obviously, being a witness is inconvenient and no one wishes to impose that on you. Unfortunately, when witnesses won't testify and say what they saw and what happened, justice comes to a halt and wrongdoers get off, just because the deceased party, who can' tell their side has no voice. You are doing a good thing for that family to assist and tell the truth of what you saw. We would all...

    Seeking a Motion to Leave may or may not cure the reason that the Judge ruled to strike the Second Complaint, reverting you back to standing on the terms of the pleading filed just prior. It could be that what was thought to be "new evidence" was inadmissible or not capable of serving as proof of the claims asserted. It may not be later allowed into evidence at all, depending on the rules of evidence. Also, don't have false hope that your case is a winner or likely to go well because the...

    If his medical damages are significant, the future costs and potential need for future surgery should be considered paramount in any damage model. Depending on whether their is health insurance, medicaid, medicare or an ERISA health plan, both the past and future medical care may need to be reimbursed or negotiated. Be careful not to accept or contemplate a number which fails to consider the future costs, and payments to others which will be required from any potential settlement....

    Don't go it alone with a crafty insurance adjuster working for the folks who hurt you in the first place! Take some professional legal advice from a lawyer who will make a plan with you and explain the process for you. Be sure that you actually know and understand the full nature of your physical injury before you make a decision to settle. A defendant wants a permanent settlement and their settlement documents will state as much. If your injury is nagging and lingering weeks after the...

    Remember also that the document can later be used in a deposition or other trial scenario when cross examining him. Simply attempt to compare the details of the prior person admitted to have been an employee to your own status and employment details and maintain a copy of the requests for admissions that they previously answered to be used as a trail exhibit, deposition exhibit or as an exhibit to a Motion for summary judgment. It may not really be necessary to get a party opponent to admit,...

    If you were ticketed and don't defend yourself the ticket will be a part of your driving record. If your witness and you can't be organized and take charge of proving the facts of your case where the ticket is filed against you, in a timely manner, you will most likely have a driving record reflecting the wreck as it is currently reported.

    If you have liability coverage, you need to immediately notify the insurance carrier who provides liability coverage for you that you have been sued. In some instances not notifying the carrier that you have been sued may prevent them from providing coverage, if they can prove it prejudiced them in some way in preparing a defense. If you have liability insurance and no other separate assets, you should do your best to encourage the insurance company to settle the claim and get a release for you...

    You may be able to contact the Court where the case is filed and also the lawyer who filed the case with a letter and a request for relief under the Soldier's and Sailor's Relief Act, or some similar act as most states will have to assist Soldiers who are abroad on behalf of their countries and who are also involved in legal action back home. There should be an extension that you should be able to negotiate and get in writing from the lawyer for the defendant and the Court extending whatever...
