Q: Is a settlement of 2,000 acceptable when medical bills were 3,500

1 Answer | Asked in Car Accidents for Pennsylvania on
Answered on May 22, 2018
Peter Munsing's answer
It's a low amount but then you didn't see a regular medical doctor, may have given the other side information they can use against you, and shouldn't be negotiating yet. Early quick settlements are cheap settlements. You want fast? You get less.

Q: I’m looking to obtain a lawyer to handle anything that might eventually come up.

1 Answer | Asked in Criminal Law, Personal Injury, Traffic Tickets and Civil Rights for Montana on
Answered on May 22, 2018
Peter Munsing's answer
What you want is an attorney on retainer. That means you pay him an up front fee and he will provide advice billed on an hourly basis. You need to figure out what the concerns you have are for which you need an attorney--criminal cases require criminal defense attorneys; land issues require someone who concentrates in that area. A small firm may be better for you. They should be attorneys in the counties where you expect to run into issues.

1 Answer | Asked in Car Accidents and Personal Injury for Wisconsin on
Answered on May 22, 2018
Peter Munsing's answer
Contact a member of the Wisconsin Assn for Justice--they give free consults. Normally settlement is structured so that you get at least 1/3.

However doing it yourself means you may well give the other side information it will use against you, you will get things wrong, and you will be solely responsible for paying back subrogation claims and yes, you could lose money and have even more problems.
