This is a subjective question. To normal average people - it not only looks incredibly bad and will likely ruin your life if convicted - it is in fact objectively bad as well. To other criminals or young people who don't know any better, it may look like you earned some badge of glory. You...Read more »
This is something a North Carolina attorney should advise on, but your post remains open for two weeks and the clock is ticking on your window for a timely response/appearance. It isn't fully clear what the contract dispute means (dispute with your carrier as to policy being in effect,...Read more »

A North Carolina attorney is best suited to answer your question, but you await an answer for four weeks. As a GENERAL premise for motor vehicle accidents in MANY jurisdictions, time lost from work to attend doctor visits or physical therapy is not usually compensated as part of basic economic...Read more »

The dog wasn't on public road, but on the side of a private driveway, defecating. The driver was going too fast, was not paying attention, and hit and crushed her skull with his truck. My understanding is that my dog can be loose on private property. She did not run to, or in front of the... Read more »
File a claim with their insurance company. You can claim for the financial loss, and also may have a claim for negligent infliction of emotional distress. I'd suggest you talk to a member of the NC Trial Lawyers Assn/Assn for Justice --- they focus their practice on these types of cases, and...Read more »
I suggest you make an appointment to sit down with them, understand what has gone on, what is going on, and what needs to be done and what needs to happen so that can be done. Many cases wait while the person involved gets the treatment they need so that the attorney can see a) how extensive was...Read more »
I was in an accident (not at fault) and I am wanting to settle with the other person's insurance company. But i am under the impression that I can't do so until my passenger finishes treatment. Then and only then will the insurance company pay me.
No. But the decision will still be up to the liability examiner (together with carrier's counsel if your matter is in suit). If they have a bead on the injuries you and your passenger sustained in relationship to the limits of the policy and the reserves they set for the claim, they have...Read more »
I was rear ended my 3 minor children and I suffered whiplash. The adjuster for the person at fault is telling me in NC there is a cap of $1,500 for pain & suffering.

Your question could be best answered by a North Carolina attorney but it remains open for two weeks. That does not sound right for any jurisdiction. You should seriously consider consulting with a North Carolina injury attorney without further delay. There are things that need to be done at the...Read more »
Turn it over to your insurance. The problem you have is you are required to drive your car so that you can stop if the car in front jerks to a stop --for instance because a kid ran out in front. Trust me the company for the other driver will fight it. I've won a case like this but that was...Read more »

If you are in the state yes. However even if outside of the state if you have an injury case you want to help your friend and yourself. Contact a member of the Va. Trial Lawyers Assn in Roanoake. They give free consults.
It's a 2002 Acrua RL with 129000 on it and in great shape. Their insurance wants to only give me Kelly Blue Book value for the car. The shop caused the fire inside of the car and admitted it. Now they want me to settle and I don't agree because I would have to purchase another car and... Read more »
Generally, in most states they only have to give you the retail value of the vehicle---even if that won't buy you what you lost. Check if that is so by contacting a member of the NC Assn for Justice--they give free consults.
