Judge Finds Insurer Guilty of Bad Faith

April 20, 2014. By Heidi Turner.
Judge Finds Insurer Guilty of Bad Faith Los Angeles, CA: News of bad faith insurance does not surprise a lot of people any more, but news of a company acting egregiously and hiding evidence might come as a bit of a shock.

It also shows that people who have had their California insurance claim denied may be able to file a lawsuit against the company.

When Does Statute of Limitations Run in Asbestos Drilling Mud Lawsuits?

April 19, 2014. By Heidi Turner.
When Does Statute of Limitations Run in Asbestos Drilling Mud Lawsuits? Jackson, MS: In any lawsuit, there can be some dispute over when the statute of limitations began running, but in cases involving asbestos drilling mud, the exact time the statute of limitations begins running is even less clear. That is because a great deal of time can pass between the time a person works with drilling mud and the time he or she develops lung problems. Even after the lung problems develop there can be a substantial gap from becoming ill to learning that the asbestos drilling mud may be linked to the lung problems. Those gaps in time make it difficult to know for sure when the statute of limitations has run out.

Often when a reader is confronted with a legal issue or concern, it is a time of confusion and emotional distress. Between possible physical injuries, medical bills and emotional stress, the legal process—and just finding legal information or legal help—can be overwhelming. We understand that.

Finding a personal injury lawyer or joining a class action lawsuit as a lead plaintiff can be daunting—even for those who've worked with a lawyer previously for personal matters—such as to create a will, file for divorce or establish power of attorney.

One of the most challenging legal issues that a reader can face is a harmful drug case. Sometimes there has been a drug recall. More often, harmful drug side effects arise without warning—and sometimes it takes quite some time before a diagnosis is made to connect the harmful drug to the negative side effects. As a patient, filing a medical lawsuit or even contacting a medical malpractice attorney, defective medical device lawyer or harmful drug attorney is often the last thing on a harmful drug victim's mind. Medical legal issues often have statutes of limitations for filing medical lawsuits and they can also require a fair amount of documentation—all of which can be overwhelming for a victim. That's why it is often not only easier, but also recommended, to have the details of any medical legal issues reviewed by a lawyer who specializes in medical lawsuits. At, we provide readers with a convenient, trusted and free way to have their medical legal issues reviewed by a lawyer.
