I received notice of application letter from workers compensation and I just realized that the date of claimed injury was wrong date. Should I call and inform my lawyer about this and ask to change it with the actual date?
Hopefully you had insurance. Since you had the title you must have paid cash. That usually means the "market value" of the car is less than you paid unless you had replacement insurance. The police may find it and hopefully not damaged too badly.
When you say he "lost the house" do you mean the bank foreclosed on him? If so then don't pay him. Wait for the bank to contact you most likely through a real estate agent. Unless someone bought the house through a foreclosure sale - then they should contact you. But if the owner/landlord still...Read more »

Your most recently filed tax return, 6 months of paystubs or whatever you and a general idea of how you spend your money. If you want to keep the car you need to stay current on the payments.

The penalty for not having insurance is that you can only get your car fixed and your medical bills paid and possibly a wage loss claim. That is of course if the other party caused the accident. Now DMV might have some punishments for you and the police may issue a citation as well..
At the time of injury, it did not seem serious. This happened about three weeks ago. Due to increasing pain and no relief, an MRI was done (three weeks later) and showed completely torn tendon which needs surgery. We did not file complaint at airport or seek immediate medical help (person injured... Read more »
I agree with the previous answer. You will have a hard time finding a lawyer to take the case on a contingency. The airport's insurance carrier doesn't want to pay you anything and they will argue that if someone gets really hurt they seek medical attention right away. They will say "how do we know...Read more »
You be perfectly clear on what they can and can't do - you should read the contract you signed with them. There should be a section spelling out what rights they have if you miss a payment. Whether they follow it exactly or not is up to them. So if it has a grace period of say 5 days it doesn't...Read more »
It can buy you a little time but doesn't solve the problem. You still need to make your payments and be able to continue making them on time. You should sit down with a bankruptcy attorney immediately to discuss your options.
My great uncle passed away when I was 7 and left me an inheritance. My parents have always controlled the money, telling me that it was "money for college". They spent $10K of it on a year of a private middle school they sent me to when I was 12-13. They spent the remainder on three years of my... Read more »
Mr. Light's answer is a good one. Just because you "inherited" the money doesn't mean you just get it at age 18. Quite often people will put restrictions into a will telling the guardian of the money how they want it spent. In your case they could have said to "only use the money for your education...Read more »
It's difficult to understand your question. What / why are you "releasing uninsured motorist"? I would strongly urge you to get an attorney well versed in personal injury matters (assuming you were injured) because you could do something to jeopardize your case. And the insurance companies love it...Read more »
I am the plaintiff in a personal injury case. The insurance adjuster has asked for my medical records, which I will be giving them. However, I was wondering if there is any way to keep the individual defendant in this case from seeing/accessing these records? I believe this individual could be a... Read more »
You should talk to your lawyer since Colorado law applies. If you don't have a lawyer you should seriously consider getting one. Statistics show personal injury plaintiffs net more money after the attorneys fees. This is because the insurance carriers will do everything they can to pay you as...Read more »
You can sue him but the penalty for you not having insurance is that you are not allowed pain and suffering damages. You can get your car damage, medical bills and any other hard cost expenses like wage loss, etc.. You can sue him in small claims court.
Your employer should handle helping you with a defense and getting you out of the action unless you did something out of the ordinary. It's impossible for us to analyze your situation without a lot more information. Normally a slip and fall doesn't involve an employee so your question is a little...Read more »
