My daughter was in a car accident last year, in which the other driver was at fault. We settled her medical claim with the driver's car insurance company, not knowing that we were to have contacted my health insurance provider first before settli...
My guess is your daughter didn't pay the entire balance in full but instead paid the balance due after BCBS made its payment to the hospital. If so, and if the BCBS policy has a subrogation provision, it is your daughter's responsibility to re-pay BCBS not only for what it paid the hospital but also what it paid for any other health care provider who provided care to your daughter for any injuries received in the collision.
BCBS usually sends a letter several weeks or months after the wreck advising wreck victims of their obligations under the policy. But, legally, they do not have to do so because the law assumes that your daughter has read and understands the policy.
Sorry that you are in this position.See question

Yes, your daughter can recover medical bills, loss of income, and damages for pain, suffering, disfigurement, and loss of enjoyment of life. You are encouraged to seek the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer, most of whom will work with you and only charge if they are successful in getting the case resolved. I strongly encourage you not to do this on your own - the insurance company will have an experienced claims adjuster handling this matter and you need experienced legal help as well.See question

State Farm should hire a lawyer to represent you even if the policy may not provide coverage for this incident. Confirm that they are going to respond to the lawsuit in a timely way and, if they do not confirm that they will do so, hire a lawyer to help persuade them. Act quickly - you only have 30 days to respond to the lawsuit.See question
I was in a car accident 2 days ago a driver hit me from behind, I went to the emergency room where tests were taken and I have a strain in my back, pain medicine was prescribed, the accident was the other drivers fault, they received the ticket.
Tennessee is not a "no fault" state and you are not legally entitled to payment for medical bills or loss of income simply because you have been in a car wreck. Instead, you have to be able to prove the fault of the other driver and prove how you were injured in the wreck. You should seek the advice of a lawyer to guide you through this process. Most experienced injury lawyers offer free consultations and will accept your case on a "no recovery, no fee" basis.See question
I'm in the process of filing a medical malpractice lawsuit, it resulted in my mother's death. However, my mom is still married to my father even though they been separated years. He knows no details of what happened. Is there any way to get him t...
Under Tennessee law, the only way you can file this case is to be appointed administrator of your mother's estate. If your father does not object, and no one else objects to your appointment, you will be appointed and can pursue the case. Depending on the length and other details of their separation, your father may still be entitled to a portion of any monetary recovery.See question
I borrowed a friends car. She is uninsured and so am I because I do not have a vehicle. There was an accident where I was at fault. Am I in trouble.
Yes. First, you can be held to be financially responsible for the harm caused. This can result in a civil judgment against you, and the person with the judgment can take a portion of your paycheck, seize assets, etc.
Second, the State might come after your driver's license for driving without insurance. Candidly, I don't know much about that area of the law but that too can have serious consequences for you and thus I suggest you consult with a lawyer in your area if you receive notice that either the other person in the wreck or the State of Tennessee is taking legal action against you.See question

You have one year from the date you discovered or reasonably should have discovered that you had been injured during the original surgery. To be safe, assume that the one-year period began on the date of the original sinus surgery.
The merits of your case can only be determined after a review of the applicable medical records and communication with an appropriate expert,See question
What is the statue of limitations on prescription fraud in tn
Your question is unclear. If you are saying that someone died because of a prescription error by a doctor or pharmacist, the deadline for taking legal action is one year from the date of the injury that resulted in injury that later caused death. So, for example, if a person who prescribed medication B and instead the pharmacist filled the bottle with medication C and this resulted in the patient getting sick on November 1 and dying on November 5 that safest deadline for taking legal action would be one year after the patient got sick from taking the wrong medicine (not the day the patient died from taking the medicine).
I hope this helps.See question
Want the complex to pay for medical bill
Maybe. A property owner is not always liable for an injury that occurs on the premises. Rather, the liability of the property owner (or occupier) depends on a the facts. So, more details are necessary before any lawyer can answer this question for you.
You should speak with an experienced injury lawyer. Most lawyers will not charge you for this consultation. You should also take pictures of the place you fell. The deadline for taking legal action for this type of matter in Tennessee is one year from the date of the fall.See question
I grandchild pull the bottle warmer plug and the hotwater Spill on his stomach and also his feet.
Your grandchild may have some legal rights here, but more details are necessary to fully understand those rights and whether it makes sense to bring a claim. If the childcare provider was a licensed provider, he, she or it will have liability insurance as a sources of funds for your grandson. If the provider was not licensed as a day care provider, it may be difficult to collect any money. I urge you to sit down with an experienced personal injury lawyer and let him or her get all of the details. Most experienced personal injury lawyers will not charge for this consultation and, if they think they can help your grandson will do so on a contingent fee basis (which means they don't get paid unless the case is successful). I urge you or the child's parents to call a lawyer as soon as possible.See question
