I had a car accident almost a year ago. Thank God, my children were already dropped off to school. The person who hit me head-on was high on marijuana (according to the police report) and was speeding, racing with another car and I was hit head-on, resulting in the total loss of both my car and the...

I would be shocked if your current attorney is unable to help you with your injury claim as it sounds substantial. I would encourage further communication to clarify that fact and if indeed correct, immediately retain a qualified personal injury attorney to assist you with your bodily injury...View More
Trust. You need to go with someone you have a level of trust in after communicating with them. You don't necessarily need to sit down to meet with the attorney, but at a minimum have a phone conversation, or a Zoom meet, ask the basic questions like, how does this work? what should I...View More
Back in October of 2021, my Mother and Aunt were ran over and killed by an 18 y/o girl. On the scene of the accident the first agency to respond was the CHP. The officer that conducted the questioning and such, opted to not conduct a sobriety test, nor in field or blood test. The 'girl'... View More
There are two avenues you can pursue here; one is civil, the other is criminal. Law enforcement takes the report to capture the facts and then may submit the report to the district attorneys office to consider filing criminal charges. You have very little to no influence on whether or not the DA...View More

You are correct, it's not fair, which is why there are attorneys that specialize in representing victims such as yourself. I suggest you contact one immediately to improve your situation. Sounds as if you need a better diagnosis to your injuries as well.
I heard due to Covid I possibly could have the statute of limitations to file extended. I am homeless and have a hard time just getting my phone charged etc The person that hit me had insurance pretty much the legal required. I had blood on my brain for a week almost and had some teeth knocked out... View More
I think your best bet is to retain an attorney on a contingency basis (no money out of pocket) to research and answer this question for you. Statute issues are no so straightforward given the shutdowns, so you're best served by having a specified attorney give you an answer.
The road was clear to go across to the 3rd lane. We have at least 3 witnesses that all said the car that hit us was racing another car and hit us going at least 90mph. Is there any way we could be considered at fault?
it is possible to get an electronic download from the other vehicle's airbag module and if that substantiates the witness testimony, regardless of who had right of way at those speeds, driving with recklessness, the other vehicle should be considered at fault.
My insurance only wants to give me $3500 because I did not have full coverage. Is there a way to get more? I have to cover the costs for the towing company & to get my vehicle out. Is there a way to sue the other vehicle? I am emotionally & mentally stressed out, especially since I am a 20... View More
you are able to pursue the other driver legally, most likely in small claims, but the odds of you satisfying any judgment is low. Depending on what type of coverage you had on your own policy you may be able to obtain a recovery for your PTSD and any other associated injuries. That is your most...View More
