    You really need to retain an experienced lawyer in this area of law in Indianapolis to advise you about your case, if you don't you risk an adverse consequence! This is too important not to have someone with the necessary knowledge and experience helping you! Good Luck.

  • Can I file a lawsuit for emotional distress leading to physical injury (miscarriage)?

    Hello. For the past three years, I have been trying to collect on a promissory note from my ex-fiance. The amount constitutes the bulk of my life savings. He led me on with a number of lies to make me think repayment was right around the corner. W...

    Constantine’s Answer

    I am so sorry for your awful experience with this person and for the loss of your baby. You are correct that miscarriages in the first three months of pregnancy are very common, so what you would really need is for your treating doctor or a medical expert to be prepared to testify that the miscarriage was reasonably medically certain to have been caused by the stress caused by your ex's wrongful conduct. You should see an experienced personal injury attorney right away and see what their thoughts are on the case. You need to make sure you didn't waive any of your claims by anything you may have signed previously? The other consideration is what will you be able to collect on in the future from your ex? Will it even be worth pursuing him in a costly legal case if you realistically will never be able to collect anything from him in the end, so you need to find out what assets he may have as a part of your analysis? Good luck and take care of yourself.

  • Served process for a car wreck but it isn't me (mistaken identity)

    Constantine’s Answer

    I agree with Attorney Peoples, call the other party's lawyer and explain the situation, provide proof that you are not the correct person as needed and demand an immediate dismissal, the lawyer will have no interest in maintaining the lawsuit against the wrong defendant which could expose him and his client to damages for wrongful prosecution.

  • Win.....

    Good Afternoon, I had a summary judgement hearing. It was filed of course by the defendants. Here is what I received today by the court. "The Plaintiff has asserted that she has a psychological disorder that rises to the level of being insane ...

    Constantine’s Answer

    I agree with the other attorneys' responses, you need to hire a lawyer and be prepared to prove or defend your position that the statute of limitations was in fact tolled due to your insanity. A declaration from your treating mental health providers stating you were and/or are still insane would be an excellent start in proving your position.

  • In litigation for a credit card debt, would like to settle to hav ethe case over and done with, what % of debt

    is acceptable to offer? Also if the other party rejects my offer, will me offering to settle consititute as an admission? Would they be able to use my offer against me in the lawsuit? And would telling them that I'm close to filing for bankruptcy ...

    Constantine’s Answer

    I agree with the other attorneys, but all that being said, make your best effort to settle with them and try to start off with a very low offer, letting them know that you have other debts and are close to bankruptcy is not a bad thing if that is true, it certainly can't hurt your settlement negotiations.

  • What is the criteria for getting a specially set trial date in civil court litigation?

    Thank you.

    Constantine’s Answer

    I agree with attorney Kelskey, it is largely a decision made at the judge's discretion. Another possible reason to specially set a trial in some jurisdiction is age, if the person is over a certain age, you can ask that the court set an expedited trial date? You would need to check the Florida court rules to see if there is a preference statute based on age, and if so, whether you qualify?

  • Are any parts of small claims cases recorded in a standardized manner and available for public review?

    I'm curious if county clerks are required to keep publicly accessible records of small claims cases. If they are not, shouldn't this all be a matter of public record, being that it's in the public interest, occurs in a court of law, and is funded ...

    Constantine’s Answer

    You should check with the court clerk's office of the small claims court you are concerned with and see what records they keep? You can usually get a copy of the summons and complaint, answer, any cross-complaint, judgment, and satisfaction of judgment but that would be about it?

    Constantine’s Answer

    I agree with the responses of the other attorneys, you are on the hook for the all the rent unless you can show a good reason why you moved out before the end of the lease? If the lease allowed and you did not have a binding argeement with your former roommates you should have just sub-let your 1/3 interest in the lease to another person or give them the option of finding another person to replace you ?
