I bought a car December of 20, in March of 21 I ended up in some road construction work that we were being flagged to drive through. I proceeded to drive through like normal. Until my serpentine belt started squealing pretty much immediately and I asked the flag boy what was that down on the road?... Read more »
Your post suggests that the date of incident is in the year 2021----is that correct?

Went to sign the settlement check but wanted a copy of complete check ( front and back) I was told no I couldn't get the back of the check because it was unethical and was told that until I sign the check my pay will be reduced every week is this true
A Louisiana attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. An attorney might need more information to determine what is going on - it sounds like you might have a wage lien that is accumulating. That's only a general guess from the weekly reduction you mention. An...Read more »
I had insurance on 2 of my vehicles, I’m not sure why the 3rd wasn’t on there. I was in the hospital having surgery and someone backed out of the parking space next to my car swiping the back corner, my taillight and scratched my bumper.
Please make sure that you do not miss your court date, however, if you have not already done so, then please contact a few criminal defense attorneys and hire the one with whom you are most comfortable. That is something you need to do immediately.
I was pulling out of my driveway and didnt see the car coming to my Left due to fog. I tied to gun it but they tried going into the left lane. We collided and totaled both vehicles.

I fired my lawyer because he wasn’t fighting for me and made me stop treating while I was still hurting. But I can’t work , I’m in school with no car and need transportation and money. What can I do? I already have a new lawyer looking into my case.

That's 2 different scenarios with 2 different answers (most likely). The operator of the vehicle (and not the owner of the vehicle) would be responsible for any tickets issued assuming the ticket is issued to the driver. Likewise, the operator of the vehicle (and not the owner of the...Read more »

You can submit this to your insurance company---if your insurance company says that you have coverage then they will handle it.

until after the wreck. The other driver's insurance company advised they will fix their insured driver's truck and then subrogate against me. I am a single mom, 3 kids, unemployed since pandemic, I have no car therefore i myself carry no automobile insurance. I live in Louisiana.... Read more »
A Louisiana attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. I hope everyone involved in the accident is okay. Unfortunately, it is as they described it to you - the subrogation department will want its money back. If you feel you could attempt negotiate, you could consider...Read more »
My age is written incorrectly, I do not believe the statute number does not exist, and I also believe the officer was supposed to write down the vin number to my vehicle. There was also another section that was not filled out.
double-post: He can represent himself but I was always told that a fool represents himself so I recommend that he hire a traffic ticket attorney to represent him so that: (1) he is aware of his options; (2) his attorney will not unknowingly allow him to be taken advantage of by the...Read more »
I reported it to the police. My leg was damaged as my head. Upon reporting to police, they asked me not to file charges against them. Only file a complaint. I’m scared all the time. I feel I have no protection in my hometown. There were witness. And they left the scene of the accident

It would depend on the wording of the contract between the client and lawyer. Most contracts state that the fee is a percentage of "all amounts recovered." Therefore, the fee would be a percentage of the total settlement, including the lien, in most cases. Many times, the attorney will...Read more »
I got into a wreck on the afternoon of 12/17. Fault wasn't determined at the scene, and no tickets were issued. I didn't immediately file a claim with my insurance due to stress and mental health issues (it was the 5-yr anniversary of my dad's death). I also needed to get a microSD... Read more »
