I'm sorry to hear about your friend, and hope they are okay. Regarding liability (who is at fault) all of the facts of the case would have to be investigated and analyzed. Your friend's intoxication will definitely be a factor, but not the only controlling factor (as drivers have a duty to yield to pedestrians in a crosswalk). Your friend would benefit from speaking with an attorney on the topic to learn their rights.
I'm sorry to hear about your injuries, especially while pregnant. Unfortunately, valuing a case like your with the information provided is nearly impossible. There are many variables in slip and fall cases; including establishing liability, severity of your injuries and possible requirements for future and continuing care.
If you would like a more detailed evaluation of your case, I would definitely reach out to a local personal injury attorney before dealing with any insurance companies.
Unfortunately, these are some of the normal practices of insurance companies lately. Adjusters like to show you offers early in the hopes that injured victims take it when you're spending money on medical bills. They usually will present a sense of "urgency" in settling the case, when the cases isn't ready to be valued or settled.
Depending on where you are in the claim, it may behoove you to get advice prior to settling or having too in-depth negotiation with the claims adjuster. Remember,...
I would definitely sit down with your attorney and discuss your concerns. The best advise I can give ist to let your attorney know that you have questions and concerns, and to be fully informed before you make a decision. Mass tort cases are very specific, and very complex. As your attorney's office is aware of all the facts and goings-on with your case and the case-specific MDL, they are your best resource.
Traditionally, your insurance carrier will provide an attorney, as mentioned. If that is not the case, consult with a local San Diego attorney right away. If you have questions about your rights, I may be able to point you in the right direction. Good luck.
Generally a landlord has a right to access the property with 24-hour notice, with your express consent within 24 hours, or immediately if there's an emergency. While he's allowed to have keys to your bedrooms, access must be granted by the tenant renting that room.
Bonafide possessors (usually renters of a foreclosed home) have the added protection of a 90-day notice period to quit the premises, granted they are provided adequate notice. It sounds that they may have had some notice of the pending foreclosure as they have not been paying rent, but that should be investigated further.
Check to see if the renters had a written lease in the first place, or if it has only expired. Do you live outside San Diego? If so, you may want to hire a local San Diego...
Sorry to hear about this. More information is needed for a thorough answer. I'm assuming you weren't renting, therefore, the 90 days wouldn't apply. Also, were you in the middle of a legitimate loan mod? May be more issues to explore if so. Your situation may be workable.
There may be solutions available, but she needs an attorney to access all the facts ASAP. It sounds like there may be multiple issues going on, but further information is needed. Regarding the UD, there is a VERY STRICT TIME LIMIT to repsond, so have her speak with an attorney as soon as possible.
