just wondering if my lawyer is doing right by me after reading reviews online im scared i wont receive my settlement as the lawyer has already recieved it 3 months ago and wont release my funds thank you
No one here can make any judgements as to what is causing the delay. Only your attorney could advise on that. As a GENERAL matter, when it comes to releasing funds, a common cause of delays could involve negotiation and settlement of liens with medical providers or other entities. But that's...View More
You better tell your friend to hire a good lawyer. Your friend is facing up to 30 days in jail and 6 months loss of his license and some fines. If convicted which it sounds like it would be easy for the state to do, due to the video evidence, these penalties are a real possibility without good...View More
After I went to court and other parties didn't attend 3x I was told by public defender to pay fines which I did. Now 3 years later I have to attend court for the additional 2 .tickets that were not in system.Can the town do this?
They may or may not be able to do this, an attorney would need to ask you and the court a lot of question starting with ,one like were the tickets issued and served on you, the reason why they were not in the system, were the tickets sent to another court thus a double jeopardy problem. That...View More
if you receive a warning in new jersey for failing to stop for a pedestrian in a marked crosswalk will that increase your auto insurance rates. Not a ticket but a warning. I have a camera in my car and the video shows nothing except a cop waving to turn left. Can I contest this ?
A ticket filed in the municipal court is required before direct and collateral consequences become an issue. If a police officer gives only a warning, then the court, motor vehicle commission, and insurance company should not find out about the encounter.
I filed it on my taxes as income. Now that they car has been totaled in an accident, they refuse to release the title because of this $1000 in late charges. Per GM rep there is interest on late charges. I never heard of this. If they charged it off and I had to claim as income, why do I have to pay... View More
If a valid bill was not paid from the settlement, you are still responsible to pay it. But your attorney may be responsible for some or all of it if the attorney should have negotiated or otherwise handled the lien. Ask the attorney to negotiate the lien.
At a later date I returned to an er and the doctor did not seem to believe I could not lift my shoulder higher so she forced it now I am unable to lift or use my left arm because she forced it when I told her it couldn't..... be

It gives me an address in Chicago where the accident happened, but I’ve never been to Chicago, nor have my vehicles. They want me to call them with my insurance or forward the letter to them. What do I do?
Much more information would be needed to properly answer your question such as was the accident a covered event under your insurance, Did someone drive your car to Chicago, Was your car stolen etc. Speak with a lawyer or if you have insurance for this event your insurance company. I suggest a...View More
The police came back the next night accusing me of making false report because apparently my ex boyfriend was driving the car and had gotten into an accident. I allow him to use my car when he needs it but in this particular day I did not know that he had the car as I thought he was out of state.... View More
This sounds important. But it is difficult to answer this question online because more information is necessary. If it is as important to you as it sounds, then you will want to contact a private attorney to discuss this in more detail.

You can't still receive a ticket as you would be past the statute of limitations, but it sounds like you may already have had one. I would hire an attorney to research this and see if any tickets arose out of the situation to make sure you don't have a warrant for your arrest for not...View More
A lawyer would need to ask you several questions to properly answer this question starting with do you have an under or uninsured insurance to cover loss, does your contract speak to an accident and does it include recovery of attorneys fees etc. Although it may cost a few dollars to speak with a...View More
In November 2019, I was 15 (I’m 18 now) and was behind the passengers side of a Lyft driver. Is was around 3am and we got hit by a drunk driver on the highway. I watched my Lyft driver die and that was the last thing I remember. I woke in the hospital with a scraped knee, a broken rib and a... View More
Whether you are entitled is only half of the battle. Your statute of limitations is running out quickly. Normally it is 2 years but becuase you were a minor, it was suspended. You need to contact counsel asap.
Unfortunately, it appears, the law would consider you at fault for the accident as from your description it appears you were making a left turn into on coming traffic and therefore you must yield to oncoming traffic. But an attorney would need to see the accident report before making this decision.
I believe the employee, if accident occurred while in his employment, would be entitled to coverage from the county. I recommend filing a title 59 notice if you are the Plaintiff. The time for this to be done is short, so speak with counsel.
My friend got into a bad car accident while intoxicated. She had a burned, bloody face and expressed her arm was in pain (hospital confirmed it was broken the following day). Upon arrival the police asked if she wanted to go to the ER, but due to being drunk and in shock she declined. They... View More
Due to injuries her field tests may have been compromised. She denied injuries and opportunity to go to hospital. So SFST argument is hard to hold against cops since they did not know. However with a medical expert the accident can be a factor for concussion mobility and other reasons. In many...View More
This is actually an interesting issue. What was the intentional act? Police can say you intended to operate the vehicle in a sleepy state, unless you are a narcoleptic. If the sleep suddenly and without warning came upon you (bit into a magic apple perhaps) then you may have an argument that you...View More
