I am a subcontractor on a county project with federal grant money involved. I have not been fully paid by the General Contractor that hired me. I filed a claim against their bond. I need to know if this is the same as filing a Miller Act Claim. I ...
If you have delivered a notice to the prime contractor by certified mail, return receipt requested or other form of notice that provides a third party verification of delivery then you have likely complied with the notice requirement under the Miller Act. If you have not done so then you must do this. This is different than filing a notice with the bonding company. The next step or a step to be taken at the same time is to provide a sworn claim to the bonding company. Once you have submitted the proper documentation to the bonding company, they will either pay or reject your claim. If they reject your claim then you would file a suit within one year of the last furnishing of laor or materials on the job. Another issue is whether the Miller Act is applicable to the county road project even though Federal Funds are used. If the bond is written as a Miller Act bond then this would be helpful in this regard. There are Miller Act legal guides on AVVO for you to look at as well. https://www.avvo.com/legal-guides/ugc/how-to-file-a-miller-act-claimSee question
I have heard attorneys advise that you "MUST HAVE" actual damages to recover in a civil lawsuit however, I have read about cases that either settled or were adjudicated for "LARGE SUMS" where no actual damages, to speak of anyway, were present. Fo...
I agree with some of the other answers given. First you generally have to have some damage or else you do not have a right to bring an action. Once you have an element of damages then the question may become whether there is a statutory basis to increase the award or it is a claim that would allow for punitve damages- which may be limited by statute to a multiplier of the compensatory award.See question

You need insurance coverage for you for your vehicle. If it the vehicle you are driving is a temporary substitute for a vehicle you had insurance on that was broken down then you likely would have coverage under your policy. IF you had valid coverage on another vehile with you listed as the insured -take this proof with you to court. If you didn't have coverage you will need to obtain coverage before court- on your vehicle. Your brother-in-law needs coverage on the vehicle. You should bring proof of coverage to court.See question
I went on the Maury show and they sent me to a dentist to fix my teeth and get a partial denture. Instead of pulling the bad teeth, she grinded them into my gums and it causes me unbelievable pain and I can barely eat. This occurred in Feb. 2016
I have not seen the episode of the show and I am frankly not familiar with the show. I am amazed you were on a TV show and had dental work done. I am assuming the dentist did the work for free as part of the show?? In any event, any suit would have to filed in the state where the dentist did the work. The law of that state would apply to a claim. Generally you would have to have an expert (in this case an oral surgeon) say that the dentist violated the standard of care.See question

I am sorry this happened to you. Based upon what you describe this employee shouldn't have acted this way and should have been more sensitive to your situation. This type of action would be for negligent infliction of emotional harm or outrageous conduct. This would require proof that you had to undergo some type of professional treatment as a result of the episode. Also for outrageous conduct in Tennessee the conduct must be so outrageous as to not be tolerated in a civilized society. This is a really tough and high standard. Hope this answers your question. And I am sorry that someone was this insensitive to your situation.See question

This really does sound like more of a medical question than a legal one- and to the extent it is a legal one - there is not enough information. First of all for your health- I would recommend you get a second medical opinion. As to legal matters, while Depakote was originally approved by the FDA to treat seizures in epilepsy, migrane treatment was subsequently approved. There are a number of side effects reported in the literature. And the drug should never be taken during pregnancy. There have been several lawsuits filed against the manufacturer. But lawsuits against a drug manufacturer are difficult. And certainly there must be a medical causal link between any claimed injury and the drug. As to a claim against your doctor, medical malpractice claims are very dificult as well. And you have not mentioned enought for anyone to be able to advise you. If you feel you have a claim, I would suggest you go online and search for a medical malpractice attorney and talk to them. Good luck and Good health to you.See question
I have provided my workplace with a request off. So it's not like I'm just simply not showing up. And they are well aware that I have duty one weekend a month. I just want to know what I could possibly sue the business for.

While driving on a suspended license I had an accident in tennesee but I also had car insurance up to date will the car o hit be covered?
I would suggest you go ahead to contact your insurer- turn the claim in. You don't want to be denied coverage for late notice. The suspended license might not even be a consideration of fault in your case- depending on the facts.See question

The answers you have been given are correct. If the claimant settled with his own insurer then the claimant (and his insurer) may make a claim against your son as well as the owner of the vehicle. If the claimant settled with your insurer then there would be a release likely barring any claim against you and your son.See question

When you say your insurance company is "taking care of everything," I am assuming you had full coverage on your vehicle so your car is being paid for. As to any personal injury - the statute of limitations is one year in Tennessee. You likely have unisured motorist coverage on your vehicle - in order to make a claim for any personal injury you would need to make a claim against your insurer under this portion of your policy. You can settle the property damage without releasing your personal injury claim with your insurer. You just need to be sure that is what the document says. IF you have a personal injury claim, your insurer will likely assign this to a different adjustor.See question
