The attached complaint was filed in Loudoun Circuit Court against Defendants CCSP Nova LLC, a/k/a Nova Care LLC, Inova Health Systems Services, Potomac Falls Health and Rehab Center and Commonwealth Care of Roanoke, Inc. The case alleges inadequate fall prevention leading to a fall that caused the Plaintiff to sustain a significant hip fracture. The names of the Plaintiff and her Power of Attorney have been redacted. Prior to serving a complaint in Virginia alleging malpractice or neglect of a nursing home resident, it is advisable to obtain a medical review and certification by a qualified expert that there was a breach in the standard of care and resulting damages. In practice, this allegation (that you obtained the proper expert certification), can be included in the complaint, as it was done here. Pro se litigants are strongly discouraged from representing themselves or loved ones in Virginia, in any type of personal injury case involving alleged malpractice. For additional answers to questions, call the Law Office of Jeffrey Downey, which represents victims of nursing home neglect in Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia. — Click here to view
This is a sample personal injury complaint in Maryland involving an uninsured motorist claim, or UIM claim. When a driver gets into an accident and the adverse driver (person who caused the accident) does not have insurance or does not have adequate insurance, the injured person can make an uninsured motorist or UIM claim against his or her own insurance company. That claim is based on the contract of insurance that the Plaintiff driver has with her own insurance company.
Here is a sample UIM complaint that was filed in Prince George’s County. The names of the individual Plaintiff and Defendant drivers have been deleted. If you are pursuing a UIM claim in Maryland, remember that you must give the insurance company notice of the claim and an opportunity to settle the case before you file suit.
In Maryland, it is appropriate to name the insurance company as a direct Defendant. In Virginia, UIM companies are typically served with process but not included as a named. You should consult an experienced personal injury attorney before attempting to file claims on your own. — Click here to view
