  • I am seeking an experienced attorney in the vicinity of Montgomery County, Pa, who specializes in debt collections.

    I need legal assistance in collecting an unpaid debt which needs to be completed by May 1, 2015, which is when the "statute of limitations" will run out.

    Noah’s Answer

    The statute of limitations for debt collections is typically 4 years for breach of contract. Now this statute can be extended if there was an additional payment after the agreement. At the very least, if you are worried about the statute, you should be certain to file suit within that time period. Good luck

  • Should I look for another lawyer?

    I was injured by a Chiropractor in Jan 2014. Had to have emergency back surgery. My lawyer ordered medical records but has done nothing with my case. They have not even decide to take it or not. Time is running out. Is this a stall tactic or w...

    Noah’s Answer

    It depends. If you are truly running out of time, then call your lawyer and ask for an update immediately. If that lawyer does not take the case, then you may need to seek a second opinion and you do not want to do that with little time left. More importantly, if you do have a case, make sure that you feel comfortable with the lawyer you have chosen. Good luck.

  • Do I have a medical malpractice case?

    In July I injured my left knee to the point it was locking up and buckling. I eventually went to an orthopedic surgeon to see what was wrong since the pain wasn't going away. They did an MRI. The doctor stated I had a lateral meniscus tear and it ...

    Noah’s Answer

    The answer is maybe. The question should be was it negligence to perform the surgery based upon the MRI results? If it was a judgment call on the MRI, or if the MRI results could have been reasonably interpreted as showing a tear, then liability may be difficult. If the MRI results did not indicate a surgery was necessary and you can obtain a second doctor to support that, then you probably have a case. The other is going to be damages. Most lawyers will probably not want to take a medical malpractice case without significant long term damages, and this case may be difficult to show long term harm, even if there was a mistake. Of course this does not seem fair, but just stating reality. Good luck. I would definitely do request the records and have the records reviewed by an attorney just to be safe.

  • What should I do when I receive a notice of appeal on a case I won?

    I was sued by a debt collector agency represented by a crooked firm called pressler and pressler. I went pro se to magisterial district court on 8/20/2014. Next day, I received a letter from the court that " judgment for defendant" was granted. ...

    Noah’s Answer

    Their notice of appeal should have contained a notice for you to file a complaint with the Court of Common Pleas. You will need to get a copy of the complaint form and make sure you timely file your complaint or the matter can be dismissed even if you won at the magistrate. The case has been appealed de novo - meaning fresh or new and therefore it no longer matters what happened at the magistrate. Time to start over.

    good luck

  • Radiologist missed fracture on x-ray causing me to have extensive surgery almost 3 months later.

    I fell & broke my foot. Went to ER and had x-ray. Was told it was sprained but radiologist would read it & let me know if he found anything. Heard nothing so I called the hospital 3 days later cause my foot was all bruised, swollen & badly deforme...

    Noah’s Answer

    The question is can you show that the fracture happened before the misdiagnosis. Meaning in theory it is possible that you sprained your ankle, then suffered the fracture later. (Doubtful but possible). If you are sure that they missed the fracture, and it is obvious on x-rays, then you would be entitled to all medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering. The real question is what additional harm did you suffer by the delay in diagnosis? If you have a doctor opining that your future is worse now because of the delay than if they would have originally caught it, that will increase the value of the case significantly. I would definitely talk to a few lawyers. If they are offering money now, there is probably a missed or delayed diagnosis. Just remember once you settle, you can't come back later for more, so make sure you understand all of the issues and potential harm in the future. Good luck

  • The garnishee was served on 7/22/2014. Answers were filed on 7/23/2014. How do I obtain a judgment on the answers?

    Lehigh County Courthouse served the bank. The bank answered the questions. I need to get my money from the bank. How do I do that?

    Noah’s Answer

    If the bank answered that there is above $300 in the account (the personal exemption amount) - then you can enter judgement against the bank for the excess up to your judgment amount potentially including costs and interest. You should contact the bank first and see if they will release the money first without having to enter judgment against them. Hopefully you can collect. Good Luck

    That's easy. You need an easement agreement signed and recorded for the properties. You probably can find one online. Most Attorneys would charge about $500 plus recording fees.

  • Cost of exper witness.

    The judge said i need a expert witness in my case,it is a psychiatrist,about how much would this cost?

    Noah’s Answer

    You should be able to find one for about $150-$250 per hour. Try online in your hometown, or the yellow pages and just start calling. To have better luck, I would say similar to the following, "I am looking to retain an expert for litigation purposes, Can you please send me a fee schedule?" That should open some doors. Good luck.

  • What do I do about my lawyer who is not tring to give me my settle check

    We settle my case and I signed the papers for the check to be release to me. My lawyer office said the check would be here in 3 weeks but it has been 3 months and I have not gotten a call from them to let je know whats going on. I have called ever...

    Noah’s Answer

    I would be patient and document the process. Hopefully, there is a justification for the delay. I would send a written request confirming your attempts to call and that there has been no response. If you still do not receive a response, your only option would be to report the actions to the better business bureau or to the PA disciplinary board. But that will not get you paid. I think documenting your frustration should resolve the issue. Good luck.
