Legal Answers
7 Questions Answered

Q. If you believe a car malfunction led to your injuries who or what attorney would you try to get for that? Thank you
A: Depending on evidence in the case, Toyota could be named in the suit. Since you have a lawyer representing you, this is something to discuss with that lawyer.
Q. can power of attorney be appointed to a lawyer by the spouse of someone who is already in a coma.
A: A power of attorney by a comatose person would be invalid.
Q. I am being sued from an accident do they have the right to subpoena my medical records without my permission
A: The plaintiff in the case does have a right to issue subpoenas for your medical records, particularly those that relate to the accident. They can probably also obtain records covering all treatment you have had for a year or two before the accident. Your attorney can object and ask for a court ruling as to any records that are not relevant to the case.
