  6. Hello. I just received notice less than a week ago that I’m still listed as owner of my property. Over 10 years ago, I yielded it back to my bank, since I could no longer make payments on home equity loan. My home was already paid for, prior to my loan approval. I assumed that the bank took ownership, since that was the consequences for default in the Agreement. Weren’t they required? This notice states delinquent taxes of $23,000 and the Tax Lien Sale on the land was today. The home was demolished some years after I yielded back to bank. If I want my property back, how can I have bank ordered to pay delinquent taxes, since I wasn’t aware that they never took ownership? I have been homeless for some time while trying to recover from the recession. Had I known this, I could’ve been paying the taxes and redeemed it.

  14. Hello, I am looking for Attorney for a Lawsuit against The Allegheny Health Network for a discrimination case. I was in an automobile accident and was hit from behind, I passed out for a few mins, the police call for an ambulance and I was transported to the Allegheny Health Network where I was seen and then released after about 3 and a half hours. The bad news is at the time of my release I was still light-headed and not stable upon walking and had severe back pain. After the accident, I was immediately transported to the emergency room at Allegheny Health Network. When I was removed from my vehicle my walking cane and wallet were still in my vehicle at the scene of the accident. Because of debilitating arthritis and back surgery, I need a walk-assist ( walker or cane) The cane was left in my vehicle along with my wallet and money. So I had no money or my cane to get back home. I ask the nurse, could they pay for transportation ( cab ) and she said they had no money or funds to pay for a cab, the best they could do is give me bus tickets to get home. So I took the bus tickets and walked to the bus stop around the corner to the bus stop. The nurse told me the bus would be only 10 mins, that was not true it took 40 mins to wait in the cold. On the arrival of the bus as I stepped on the bus, the step was too high and I missed the step and filled forward to the floor and was unconscious for a while ( time of unconscious unknown ) The bus driver told me I was out for a few mins. At this point, an ambulance was called in I was transported back to the same emergency room I just was released from. On my return to the emergency, I refused treatment and was told to leave the hospital at which point I field too weak to walk so they called the hospital security and had me physically remove and put on a park bench outside the hospital in the cold at around 7 am. If an attorney is interested to hear my case please contact me ASAP. thank you.
