My brother was declared by the doctor with terminal illness and put in hospice care. He only had a couple of weeks to live. My mother asked him to stay with us for a few days and he agreed. We brought him home after being cleared by the hospic...
In addition to what the others have said, I think a good lawyer will help you to prevail. In my experience, once someone enters hospice, he usually doesn't have much time left. Don't know what his wife claims you did or didn't do that was negligent. Hopefully your homeowners or renters ins will furnish a lawyer.See question

Minors in Indiana generally have 2 yrs from reaching majority age 18 to file suit. That means age 20. However, it is likely that if a claim was brought on your behalf 10 yrs ago, and money paid, a release of claims was signed. Many starts require court approval of settlements for minors. Check with local counsel and the local court file.See question

Use avvo find a lawyer to find local lawyer to talk to about this. Cant say how Texas is on this type of claim, but in Ca, it would be very difficult to win. Do you have papers from when you made the purchase that showed the coverages and price you were supposed to pay? When you got the bill, did it list each coverage and charge separately for it?
Did agent say what mistake she had made on 1st policy?
If you have the papers showing no med a or pip, before the accident happened, you will have a hard time convincing a court you had no obligation to review the papers when they arrived especially in light of an earlier screw up. Check w/Texas lawyer to see how this flies in Texas.
After agent re did the policy, did you get paperwork showing what coverages were included in the new policy, before the accident occurred?See question
I was involved in a t bone car accident in August of 2015. Within 12 hours of that I went to the emergency room and got checked out with back injuries, knee injuries and the usual pain. After that, I went to a lawyer and began immediate treatment....
These issues are complex and very case specific. Careful review of prior records and radiographic studies are in order. Witnesses who know you and your functional capacities before and after the accident need to be talked to. (Co workers, friends, neighbors, family)
What will your docs say? Was the crash forceful?
There are no guarantees how a jury will react and decide. It sounds like the atty doesn't want to spend the time and money to litigate/try the case. He/she may be right, but difficult to say. Id suggest getting your file and having other attys review to see if they are willing to move forward against a 2500.00 offer.
I wonder if the limit in Small claims court in Ohio is more than 2500.00. If no atty is willing to litigate, you may want to take a shot in small claims.See question

I think you need to talk to both Ok. and Kansas lawyers. The crash happened in OK so OK law probably applies to the crash and wrongful death action. However, if the deft who caused the crash lives in Kansas, suit may be possible there.
If it is your uninsured motorist coverage which is paying, the question is whether it will apply Ks law or OK law, and if those states' laws on who gets to make claims, and how proceeds are allocated, are different from each other.See question

I may be receiving money from a lawsuit for non physical injuries.
Generally compensation for a bodily injury including emotional distress/pain and suffering, is not taxable income. It has nothing to do with putting the money into your house or how you spend it. This is per the Internal Revenue code where this is an exception to the definition of income. Exception to the exception is if you actually took a tax deduction for having to pay medical expenses, and then in a later year receive reimbursement for those bills. pretty rare to actually qualify for the deduction to begin with.
However the tax treatment is different depending upon the type of lawsuit. If you sue for pure emotional distress not connected with a physical injury, it is taxable. Punitive damages are taxable. if it is an employment case, different rules apply. Talk to your atty and tax advisor. Im sure you can search online and come up with tax article discussing these and related issues.See question

Presumably you signed a release of claims when you settled for 30k with his ins company. If so, then you cannot sue the party you released when you settled. have the papers reviewed by a local lawyer to be sure. You should check your motorcycle ins to see if it would cover any medical expenses incurred. If you had medical ins, it should have covered the bills. A lawyer may be able to help you negotiate the medical bills. You may want to consult a bankruptcy lawyer as well to discuss options.See question
