Suspect admitted 100% fault right away. I was in a rental that I was liable for. Lawyer that represented me at time settled me out for 2,000…. I feel like there’s room for compensation. Please contact me asap as I need help pursuing this

If you signed a Settlement Agreement then most likely you are done and there is nothing more you can do. Read whatever document you signed carefully and it should be self evident. You might ask an attorney to help you understand the document if you can't.
After telling them I found another lawyer and if I needed there service I would call them. They message me everyday and it I looked over the contract to sign so they can get started on my case. I told them I'm not signing anything and I don't need there services. They won't stop.

that is a little disturbing. It could be a service they are using that isn't working properly. I would suggest you send a letter to the main attorney informing them of the situation. That should get it to stop.. and obviously just ignore the messages being sent.

You should hire an attorney right away. Most will do it on a contingency which means you pay nothing and the attorney doesn't make anything unless you win. The police report will be needed and that should have a lot of the information you need including the insurance company and policy number.... Read more »
Apparently he downloaded a Pegasus spyware software onto my phone. And now has access to ALL of my data and information. This is such a breach of privacy. I barely know this creep! What can I do?
answered on Jan 3, 2023
Great advice given so far and you should do all of them. If the person has any assets you can sue them in civil court for your damages. If they don't have any assets that might not be too productive... but all the other advice should be heeded...
I was just deposed two days ago, I will be able to correct it. I’m just unsure if it’s more trouble than it’s worth.

In 30 days you should be able to review your testimony and make any changes. I would suggest making the change and then you have nothing to be worried about. You can state you were a little confused when you answered it and didn't mean to misrepresent (if that is a true statement). If your... Read more »
I was involved in an accident on US 101 where a big rig that was in front of me came to an abrupt stop to avoid hitting a few dogs that ran in front of him on the freeway. I was only going 40 miles an hour, it was foggy and by the time I realized that he had come to a complete stop it was too late... Read more »

When you rear end someone it usually is your fault. The law states you should only be going as fast so that you can stop if the vehicle stops in front of you. What if it was a small child the truck stopped for? Do you think it would still be the truck's fault. As far as appealing it... I have... Read more »

answered on Nov 30, 2022
If you think your case is worth that much you should sit down with a lawyer and discuss your options. When someone doesn't have an attorney the other side thinks they can easily win. So at least talking to an attorney should be your first step. You didn't give enough information for us to... Read more »

It's hard to answer your question without more information... but if she doesn't have an attorney that could be why they are trying to low ball her. The insurance company tries to hold on to their money very tightly. If she has an attorney then it's impossible to know what is going... Read more »
My attorney always avoids me it seems
answered on Nov 9, 2022
You can go to the county court website and search your name. That should bring up any cases with your name on them. You should be able to see what has been filed in the case and some counties allow you to look at the documents filed as well.

You should hire a lawyer who can file a lawsuit. The lawsuit a public record and anyone can see it. As long as everything you are alleging is the truth you shouldn't be concerned. But make sure you get the advice from an attorney that you talk to when going over all the facts.
answered on Jul 28, 2022
The usual way to prove injury is through medical records. You could establish it with people in your life who will testify that you were injured. Your employer possibly as well. But the issue is that it would not be a big case because you didn't seek medical treatment. You should consult with... Read more »
After the accident, I called 911 and the ambulance came and took the cyclist to the hospital. The police asked me to go to the police station and performed a series of sobriety tests, I also had my blood drawn. The police still has my car now and I want to know what may happen next.
answered on Jul 26, 2022
You probably should consult a criminal defense attorney who might be able to see what is going on. If they haven't charged you yet with anything they still could be investigating, etc.. If you haven't already you should also tell your insurance company right away.

It is very hard if not impossible to answer your question with the limited amount of information. If you have an attorney - what are they telling you? Medical liens are a very complicated area of law with many variables including how obtained and what type of medical insurance you had.

Do I need a lawyer to help with a foreclosure

It can't hurt to consult with a Bankruptcy attorney but Bankruptcy won't necessarily be your best option. You might need an attorney well versed in foreclosure law. But starting with a BK attorney should give you some answers.

You should first find lawyers in your area that handle mold cases and then start calling them to discuss your case. I always suggest someone try 3-4 before making any decisions if they all are not taking on your case. Keep trying is the best advice.

If you sue her for Breach of Contract you can then ask her questions in "discovery" to try and find out her financial position. You could then take her deposition and ask further questions. Talk to an attorney to see how viable your case might be.
