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.

Q: I've told a law firm I no I don't need there service. They keep asking me to sign a contract and won't stop

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 »

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...

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 »

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 »

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.

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.
