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...

You need to sit down with another attorney right away if your current attorney doesn't handle personal injury. That doesn't really make sense but if you are confused then more clarity is needed. Don't wait to find out. You should also confirm with your current attorney that you are...View More
You should contact a personal injury attorney right away and have a consultation. Both the errant employer and possibly the home owner could be responsible but more information is needed. You need to make sure you act quickly because there are time constraints on your ability to get compensation...View More
My family did a bankruptcy (chpt 7) in 2016 and our 2nd mortgage was included in that. We got a notice that the 2nd mortgage/lien was in foreclourse and was being auction off. Apparently, it was sold. We have NOT recieved anything from the new owners of the 2nd mortage/lien. We are getting a lot of... View More
Your question isn't possible to answer in this forum without a lot more information. Your best action plan is to sit down with an experienced attorney right away to go over everything. Sometimes, depending on which bankruptcy ( 7 or 13) you filed, second mortgages do not go away. You need to...View More
A medical device was implanted by my doctor on April 10 and was expected to pass in my stool within 4 days. I rushed to the er a month later with chest pain and irregular heart beat and a few other symptoms. The xray showed the device was still there. I was scheduled for surgery a few days later to...

From the little bit of information you have provided it sure looks like you might have a case of medical malpractice but more information is needed. A qualified attorney would have to review your medical records. We actually have a qualified expert review those medical records to determine if they...View More
Yes it is common. If it's not done to there specifications they ignore knowing they have covered their you know what. I get clients coming to me with a short time until the statute runs because they thought the insurance company would treat them fairly. The insurance companies hope people...View More
I was accounted by a doctor as an adult on multiple occasions .The years were 2010 thru 2016. I think statute of limitations has passed but I believe that there is a window that has opened for adult survivors to file a claim against the abuser. I can see now that license has been suspended and he... View More
You should contact a law office that handles these type of cases. We sit down with clients who didn't think they had a case yet after going over all the facts we found some viable ways to proceed. Until you do that you will never know. It's worth your time to sit down with an experienced...View More
A woman lied against me to her husband. Her husband came yelling, threatening me and ripped off my top exposed my breast. Can I press criminal charges against the husband and get a restraining order against the wife
You should have reported it to law enforcement. I doubt they will do much these days but you still should have reported it. You could sue him in civil court (small claims court most likely) for assaulting you. Probably not a big case. And as for getting a restraining order against her - I...View More
I need advice on an auto accident. I rear-ended another car, causing minor damages. No immediate injuries reported. Unfortunately, I lack insurance coverage for that car, though I'm insured for two others.
The other party has an attorney for a personal injury claim and... View More
Some things for you to think of. The Police Report most likely shows you were not insured. Quite often when there is someone without insurance it means they don't have a lot of income or assets (otherwise why go without insurance) so that usually means that a Chapter 7 bankruptcy might be in...View More
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.
Partner and I were both struck by a vehicle, driver refused to give us information until the cops got there, the police arrived while we were both being driven away in the ambulance witnesses state he did have insurance, cops took down all information except for who his insurance company is. We... View More
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....View More
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...
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...View 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... View 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...View More
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...View 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...View More
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.
Can I sue them? I have all the documents to prove that I was in the hospital and incapable of leaving. I was also incapable of consenting to a lawyer. My family lives in abroad so they weren't able to do anything about it either.
You might have a case. More information is needed to be certain. You should contact an attorney and have a consultation to determine what options you might have. It's very difficult to give you specific advise based on the little information you have presented.
You should talk to a personal injury attorney right away. You might have a good case but there is more information needed in order to evaluate what options you might have. Contact a good personal injury attorney right away for a free consultation.
