Your question is not clear but as I understand it, someone had a wreck (I assume in your vehicle). There was no insurance to pay to fix the car. More than likely, the other driver had their own insurance fix their car and now the insurance company wants you to reimburse them for the repairs they paid to their insured. The insurance company can go to the Department of Safety and ask that your driver's license be suspended until you either make good on what they paid out or you make payment arrangements and get a conditional release. So while the insurance company can't suspend your license, they can get the TN Dept. of Safety to suspend it. Contact the DOS to get more details and what your options are to get your license back.See question

File a motion to compel responses to your discovery requests and then the Judge can decide if they have to answer or if they were dismissed.See question
Ok my boyfriend is on probation for some traffic tickets in Miss. He got 5 months left on papers and he hasn't been in any trouble until this month. Just a couple of weeks ago he got pulled over and got arrested for a DUI. He was booked and made b...
Making all these statements about what he did could come back to haunt him in court. Quit talking about what did or didn't do in a public website as potentially a prosecutor could ask you testify against him. These are things that need to be discussed with an attorney not here in public. There is no way any attorney can tell you based on the information you have provided if he can or can't get probation or avoid jail time. It will depend on the facts of the case, his prior record, what court he's in and other factors. Regardless, he needs to either hire an attorney or be prepared to be represented by the public defender.See question
I got a default judgment against me for $13500 on for a $4000 alleged breach of contract claim --which was erroneous however I didnt have the means at the time to defend it being out of state. Is there a statue of limitation for filing a motion t...
Depending on what court issued the default judgement, you may have up to a year. Rule 60.02 allows the court to set aside a judgement within "a reasonable time" but if it's based on mistake, inadvertence, surprise or excusable neglect; or fraud you have one year. Here are links to the rules.
Now if the Judgement was given in General Sessions you have 10 days to appeal the judgement to Circuit Court without having to file motions under Rule 60.
I'm not certain that a court would grant a motion based on your not having the time to deal with it so I'd certainly word your reasoning a little differently in your motion.
I went to see a nurse practitioner for extreme pain in my back and knees and was given Motrin and sent on my way without a single test. I went back a couple weeks later for swelling and pain from my knees down and extreme pain in my back. He ackno...
It would be impossible for any attorney here on Avvo to tell you if the doctor or nurse practitioner committed malpractice or negligence. That would require a review of your medical records (which I realize you're having trouble getting) and an analysis by an independent doctor to determine if they violated the standard of care. Nothing requires a doctor to treat you; you have the right to go seek medical treatment elsewhere. That may not be easy to do but unfortunately, there is no requirement to treat unless it's an emergency and then under Federal law a hospital ER must treat. I do not believe that extends to physicians and NPs. . So on the face of your question, it does not appear to be malpractice but it might be worth having an attorney review your claim. Now I believe state law does require medical providers to provide a copy of the records to the patient. The provider can charge a reasonable fee for the records but they must, assuming you follow their procedures. release the records to you. I know of no requirement that you have a lawyer to get the records.See question

Probably not. Tennessee is an At-Will emplacement state. This means an employer in Tennessee can fire you at any time for any reason so long as it's not for reasons such as race, age, sex or religion. So unless you can prove that you were fired for reasons based on one of those, it's unlikely you have a claim for discrimination.See question

If the medications had caused you to be at fault in the accident then it might be a problem. But it sounds like you were not at fault thus your medications would likely be irrelevant. Speak to a personal injury attorney to see if they think you have a claim worth pursuing.See question

You might be able to if it's a black powder firearm and does not qualify as a firearm under federal law. Certain black powder rifles don't have the necessary equipment to be declared a firearm and are considered antiques; thus it's not illegal to posses. Here is a link to the ATF site that explains what may qualify as an antique. Check with Tennessee Bureau of Investigation to be sure it doesn't violate TN law. https://www.atf.gov/resource-center/docs/0501-firearms-top-10-qaspdf/downloadSee question
Me and my spouse were in a hit and run in March. The driver has not been found. The insurance company is being difficult with the money we deserve. Is it too late to hire an Attorney?
Under Tennessee law you have one year from the date of the accident to either settle all claims against the responsible parties and their insurance companies or file a lawsuit to stop the Statute of Limitations clock. If you wait beyond a year your claim would likely be barred by law. Thus it is not too late to hire an attorney. But you need to move quickly as it takes time for any attorney to get your medical bills and records to evaluate your claim. Insurance companies rarely take unrepresented parties seriously.See question
Party was supposed to be there for only a month but that month has turn into almost 4 Years. It's my kids daddy and I want him out.
You would have to file an FED (Forcible Entry & Detainer Warrant) also known as an eviction. You can file it in General Sessions Court either with an attorney or without. You likely would have to give him written notice to move out; you cannot just force him out without court order. Once possession is granted by the court, you would have to wait 10 days before putting his stuff out.See question
