Hello, I was involved in car accident, where my car was totaled due to no fault of my own. In the state of Massachusetts you must have a minimum of $2,000 in bills to be able to sue. I just received my medical information and the total for all my ...
No .You need $2,000 of reasonably necessary medical expenses, death or a broken bone in order to be able to bring suit.See question
Hello, I was involved in a car accident and my total medical bill for two doctors visits and physical therapy was $1,997. With the law in Massachusetts requiring a $2,000 minimum threshold to sue, I was wondering the cost of the medication I wa...
Yes. But, beware. When you go to court if one of your medical expenses can't be proven ( such that all of your expenses drop below $2,000) you will not have any case. This might tend to lower the value of any possible settlement which, for a simple neck strain with only $2,000 in expenses, isn't usually going to be that high anyway. Of course, I am making the assumption its only a "simple" strain case based on your description. There maybe other factors and permanency to the injury I do not know about. Get a legal consult and discuss your options.See question

It is an impossible question to answer without knowing more information. With one prior offense I'd guess you are not looking at committed jail time but it might depend on what judge is sitting. Best bet is to secure local counsel familiar with the court you're in.See question

Sorry to hear about your surgery. If your situation hasn't really changed you will likely get the same result. Have things changed? Seizures? Your age, past work experience and educational level may come into play. They look to see if you can do any work that exists in the national economy. Did you go up to the administrative hearing level? The question I ask people is, "Can you perform the simplest job in the world?" If the answer is "Yes" proving SSA disability can be challenging. You should sit down with an attorney and discuss the case. There may be details omitted from your first application that could make a difference. I am in Attleboro across from the court if you want to talk about it more.See question

As others have noted slip and fall cases are difficult to win. However, sometimes if the facts are right they can be settled. Since you incident appears to have happened over a year and a half ago it become even more difficult. The ability to locate witnesses has come and gone. Still you should probably find someone local and discuss the matter. There may be more to it.See question

You absolutely can sue. Do not let too much time pass before consulting a lawyer. Do not speak with an insurance adjuster until you have consulted with a lawyer and let him or her do, at least, some preliminary research into the matter.See question
Now that mortgage co. Says they might put a Lien on the other house that my husband owns with a person who past away. This home wasn't filed in the bankruptcy. Can they do this?
Unless you reaffirmed the mortgage loan in your bankruptcy ( which is rarely a good idea), or the mortgage included the second property, any personal responsibility you may have after a foreclosure is gone. However, if you had an ownership interest in the second property when you filed, it should have been listed. This might constitute a violation of a discharge order entered in your bankruptcy case. Do note, legal matters can turn on small details and you post may not be providing all relevant information. If the lender moves forward you probably want to consult a lawyer.See question
I was bit by a pitbull in April of 2015. I now have multiple scars from each tooth on my right thigh.
The owner of the dog is the person liable. If they were the owner of the home, and its was foreclosed upon, they are still liable to you. Homeowners often get insurance for liability claims. I insurance was in place at the time of the incident you may be able to submit a claim. If there was no insurance in place you may have a hard time collecting anything for your loss.See question

Security said not all cameras are connected, then gave me hope that some are in the area I was parked. When I talked to the guy at the front desk he said he couldn't see anything. Am I out of luck?
Hopefully, you have reported the matter to the police when it occurred. Contact your insurance agent to see if you have coverage for the repairs.See question
