    Mahyar’s Answer

    As mentioned by my colleagues, you must consult with an attorney. Depending on the facts of the case most attorneys can help you get properly compensated for a lot more than the company is offering now. In these cases you are entitled not only to get reimbursed for your medical expenses, but also to get lost income, pain & suffering and possibly more. Please realize that if health insurance paid for the medical expenses, the insurance company will have a lien on your settlement which you have to settle with them. In my office we take a case like yours on a contingency basis, that is we do not charge until after we have received a settlement for you. So you need to call a personal injury attorney IMMEDIATELY.

  • What does this mean? § 20:134. Operating agreement.

    What does this means? THESE SECURITIES MAY NOT BE OFFERED FOR SALE, PLEDGED, HYPOTHECATED, SOLD, ASSIGNED, OR TRANSFERRED EXCEPT IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THE OPERATING AGREEMENT. My Managing partner used the LLC business ...

    Mahyar’s Answer

    I agree with my colleague. You need to retain a local business attorney who could read the operating agreement and based on the specific facts of your situation give you legal advice. There are specific laws about breach of fiduciary duties of a managing partner, and an attorney is needed to analyze your case in light of these laws.

    Good luck.

  • I recently was offered a record contract. I wanted to know if this contract is pretty standard and fair contract.

    Mahyar’s Answer

    I agree with my colleagues. What you would spend on retaining a good entertainment lawyer can save you hundreds of thousands of dollars over the life of your contract. On the other hand if you get into a bad contract, you will be stuck for some time. So do yourself a favor and contact a good entertainment lawyer.

  • If I filed my EIN number in my corporation, can my client's family go after my personal asset?

    Corporation established 2003, I have been using my social security number, versus my EIN number. In a law suit, pertaining to a client in the hospital, if my client passes away, can the family sue me, if they find me liable.

    Mahyar’s Answer

    As my colleagues suggested, the analysis of whether the person can sue you personally is complex and depends on several factors which include the nature of the suit as well as facts about your corporation. If the corporation is not set up properly, or if you have not done the meetings and kept up the corporate formalities as required by California law, you may be in danger of not only this, but other persons being able to "pierce the corporate veil" and come after you personally.
    In addition even if a corporation is set up properly and has been in compliance with all the requirements for keeping it active, and a separate entity; if you yourself, not as an officer or director of a corporation, were responsible for what happened to this client you could be sued personally. CALL AN ATTORNEY IMMEDIATELY. I have a lot of experience in corporate as well as injury cases and would be happy to talk to you about this matter.

  • Do you think it really matters what type of attorney a person retains in a personal injury situation?

    My child was struck by a vehicle while she was walking on the sidewalk of a busy street. The car lost control due to weather conditions, (light rain), and drove right up on the sidewalk. My child suffered serious head trauma, resulting in emergenc...

    Mahyar’s Answer

    It is absolutely important to talk to someone who has experience in the field of Personal Injury. There are a lot of tricks of the trade in dealing with insurance companies. It is important to look into the limits of the auto policy as well as what is the basis for the low offer by the insurance company. There are also laws that protect the injured so they can get compensated. I have had very good success in dealing with insurance companies and getting good settlements and would be happy to talk to you.

  • My 9 yr old daughter was struck by a car while riding her bike. She tried to avoid the car but it was going to fast.

    Mahyar’s Answer

    I agree with all my colleagues. Doing this case yourself is akin to performing surgery on yourself. DO NOT DO IT. Hire a competent attorney to help move the case forward. Even after an attorney is paid, you will get a lot more compensation to help make sure your daughter is taken care of. In addition, the attorney might actually help guide you in getting better medical help for your daughter. I offer free consultation and would be happy to talk to you.

    Mahyar’s Answer

    It sounds like the Contractor was negligent, but you need to have someone familiar with standard of care of the construction industry to help you with this. Contractors have general liability insurance policies that would cover these types of injuries up to a certain limit. You definitely need to contact a personal injury attorney. I practice both personal injury and construction law and can help you as I am familiar with contractor negligence issues. I practice in Mission Viejo, about 20 minutes from Camp Pendleton and have cases in San Diego.

    Please call my office for more information 949-436-2785.

  • Contractor charged us for permits that he had to pay for - is this fraud?

    On the plans, it clearly states that the contractor "shall pay for and obtain all work permits, fees, insurance and taxes required for the project. Owner shall pay building permit fee." Our contractor asked us for a blank check to pay for the "bui...

    Mahyar’s Answer

    The plans are usually done by an engineer and, although usually incorporated into the contract by reference, are not necessarily indicative of terms of the contract between you and the contractor. So I would start by reviewing your contract terms. The fees charges should have been included as line items in the proposal or bid attached to your contract. If they are not, then, as one of my colleagues suggested, have a frank discussion with your contractor and if he does not cooperate have a construction attorney review the documents and give you advice about it. If your project has not started yet and you are not sure, you should attempt to clarify the terms of the contract and your relationship with the contractor prior to the start so you do not get yourself into a situation that would end in a lawsuit.
