Q. Can we sue over someone bad mouthing us?
A: I would say that the best thing to do is that if you get sued by the car owner to counterclaim for defamation, and any other tings you might be able to think of. Defamation is a complicated area of the law, so I'd recommend talking to a local lawyer to whom you can tell all of the facts within the attorney-client relationship. Best of luck!
Q. Doctor with established expertise in field. Do I have grounds for a libel/slander case?
A: Based solely on the facts presented, yes, with a caveat. That caveat being that there may be some privilege within the profession or recognized in the law that may absolve her of such liability. It is best to speak with a local lawyer with whom you can divulge all of the facts. There are 5 basic elements to a defamation claim; 1. a false statement, 2. about the Plaintiff, 3. published to a third party, 4. damage to reputation, (5. depending on the public figure/matter of public concern analysis, either, strict liability, negligence, or what is called actual malice). This can be a very complicated area of the law to argue and defend. It is best to talk to a local lawyer who has some experience with this type of case. Best of luck!
Q. Can I be sued for telling others about things that actually happened?
A: In Indiana truth is an absolute defense to libel or slander, which I will call defamation. Because of the absolute defense other torts that are recognized in other jurisdictions are not in Indiana. A defamation case requires 4-5 elements; 1. a false statement, 2. about the plaintiff, 3. published to a third party, 4. damage to the plaintiff's reputation, (5. strict liability, negligence, or what is called actual malice. That analysis depends on the status of the person being defamed, or the subject matter of the statement if it a public figure, or a matter of public concern). Defamation is a complicated field of the law, and you should definitely speak to a local lawyer to whom you can tell all the facts. Best of luck!
