Investigators are generally able to identify those things, but in the absence of injuries, building/property policies could sometimes offer higher policy limits than vehicle policies carrying minimum statutory limits. Good luck
The simple answer is that express permission to one person would often mean they are the person permitted to use the vehicle. But depending on the relationship, level of friendliness, stating something to the effect that use of vehicle is for company purposes (or personal use as well), mentioning...Read more »
I'm sorry for your ordeal with obtaining lost wages. This is something only your attorney could advise on if they've been handling the application for your benefits under N.Y. No-Fault law. Some general reasons for delays could include verifying employment, wages, and time missed from...Read more »
I have a medical history and had this same injury before at the same job. They are aware of my medical conditions and have been for 6 years. It never was a problem until it went under new ownership this last year.
An employment attorney could advise most meaningfully on the element of your wages; as to the Personal Injury category you posted under, this may be something closer to workers' comp than personal injury. If your injury took place within the course of your employment, you may want to consider...Read more »

So sorry to hear about what happened to you. Unfortunately, from your description, it appears the Statute of Limitations (SOL) on any case has long since expired. The SOL for intentional torts such as abuse is only one (1) year from the time you turned 18. New York does not recognize a cause of...Read more »

Defendant made 2nd motion indicating I didn't comply with the Order , In my replied I indicated I did. Judge short Order form said I have 30... Read more »
Rather than standing on ceremony, the safer practice would be to comply with the second court order and give complete responses to the defendant's discovery demands. You might also want to confer with defense counsel and find out what additional discovery they claim is outstanding so that you...Read more »
Congratulations on the settlement of your case. As for the liens, unfortunately, they can take time to process. Some city agencies take 90 days or 120 days just to confirm liens.

You can sue the police officer for excessive force regardless of whether the criminal complaint against you is dismissed or adjourned in contemplation of dismissal. One has nothing to do with the other. Here's an article I found online which you might find useful....Read more »
A statute of limitations is the time limit on how long you have to bring a lawsuit. In a personal injury case the time limit is typically three years from the date of accident, but there are other shorter time periods that could apply.
A waiver of the statute of limitations is when a...Read more »
I got ran over by a garbage truck on December 11 2019 while working. I hired a worker’s compensation lawyer. I had to quit my job because of my living condition. I had no family members where I was living at so I moved. Workers compensation felt like I wasn’t entitled to any financial benefits... Read more »
In terms of the funding for the second necessary surgery, one option could be to look into public health agency coverage. In terms of the declaration of a permanent disability by your orthopedic surgery, that could be something to explore further with an attorney who handles disability claims. In...Read more »
First stop and take a deep breath. You have insurance and they will handle it all for you. It seems they were making a claim with your insurance company for the past few years and were unable to reach a settlement. They only have three years from the date of accident to file a lawsuit, and I would...Read more »
She was physically attacked by another minor and another student recorded this incident. We have pressed charges on the subjects. I believe we are going to need some to be our representative, to make sure that the young lady gets more than one week's suspension and will no longer cause harm to... Read more »
The decision to suspend your daughter's assailant (and how long to suspend her) is likely in the sole discretion of the school's principal / superintendent. Do not be surprised if you do not have any say in the matter. If the student who attacked your daughter had a history of such...Read more »
I am pro-se Claimant in the NY Court of Claims. It happens that I am calling the same witnesses as the defendant (the State). The defendant presents the witness for their own defense but ALSO makes them available for Claimant's case. Is this means double direct and cross-examinations on each... Read more »
I'd be very surprised if the Judge allows you to call as direct witnesses individuals who have already been produced as witnesses by the State. More likely than not, if the witnesses are "hostile", you will have an opportunity to cross-examine them once the State has finished its...Read more »
I am the third party in a product liability insurance claim. The claim was denied earlier this month and just yesterday, the adjuster called me wanting to "resolve" the claim by offering payment for "pain" from the injury.
Before the insured sent the complaint over to... Read more »
It's difficult to say what the cause for the change in position on the part of the insurance carrier was without seeing the file and all communications. But what you describe is not uncommon. A claim could initially be denied because the examiner has not been presented with sufficient evidence...Read more »
If somebody claims that got hurt in front of my house how can request to be paid by my house liability insurance? My security system is old and cannot record, just view. Out of nowhere you just try to get money from your neighbors ?
Your homeowner insurance company will thoroughly investigate the matter. It is not enough for someone to simply fall. They must show that it resulted from a defect in the surface or negligence on your part. The claims adjustor or defense attorney from your insurance company should be able to...Read more »
I was slipped an illegal substance in my drink unknowingly. There are witnesses. I later had my urine tested. It tested positive for thc. I have eye witnesses. This has caused me mental anguish and anxiety. Do I have a civil case?
Yes. You have a battery case (as in assault and battery). However, if the person has no money, you may win but not collect. Also, if the only effect is anxiety be aware that courts require proof of mental harm, and some states have more stringent requirments.Contact a member of the NY State Trial...Read more »

I'm not certain what it was that you signed while hooked up to IVs in the hospital, but I'll address the personal injury aspect of your question, since you posted under that category. If you were injured in the course of your employment, it's possible you could have the basis for a...Read more »

I was technically at fault due to being on a bike. Woman driving the car was messing with radio making a left hand turn. Insurance adjustor is pressuring me to settle tonight or I'll get nothing because tomorrow is 3 years.
Follow-up questions: Police report places blame on me... Read more »
I should have added, being on a bike does NOT “make you technically at fault”. A vehicle making a left turn is required to yield right of way to pedestrians and bicyclists. I have no idea how the accident happened, but that too is something to discuss with an attorney.
