    Placing a value on a personal injury case requires detailed analysis of many factors. You've skimmed the surface in your post, but far more information is required and only your attorney, who has your file and full complete knowledge of the case can, in fairness, come up with a true evaluation of what your case is worth. This is an informational and marketing website. Only your attorney with your file can give you fair advice based on the facts of your injury. IF THERE IS SUCH A THING AS...

    This sounds like pure and simple extortion. If I understand this, if you don't keep shelling out money, she will sue. Notify the insurance company ASAP. This is the classic reason that we all pay for insurance. If, for some reason you do not have the correct coverage, then take the money you have saved by not having the correct coverage and retain an attorney to (1) send correspondence demanding that the extortion stop and/or (2) to determine what the actual damages are, to make a fair...

    Bamboozled is a good word for what the insurance industry will do to you even though you were not at fault and their insured customer was at fault. A month and a half is nothing to wait for a settlement. Your claim is on the bottom of the claims adjuster's pile because you do not have an attorney indicating to the insurance company that you are in fact serious. The insurance industry's own statistics confirm that once an attorney is brought into a claim, the value at least doubles....

    There is not such thing as a slam dunk slip and fall case. I have no idea why an attorney would not convey the accurate settlement proposal numbers because (1) attorneys working on a contingent fee make a percentge and have incentive to obtain the highest settlement possible (2) must account to the client as to all final numbers and (3) are highly regulated by many ethical rules. Here is why slip and fall cases are never a slam dunk: BLUE LINK BELOW

    What you need to do is to have a sit down meeting with the credit union to go over this. Banks and credit unions make mistakes. Generally speaking, in my experience when such mistakes are made, especially with the level of documentation that you indicate that you have in your posting - incorrect account info on a letter addressed to you - they should be willing to correct the situation. If for any reason you simply have lost all faith in them, then switch banks/credit unions. As to a...

    Lien holders have grabbed a growing role in the settlement of personal injury cases. Different attorneys approach issues differently. My goal is to identify liens and approach lienholders with reduction negotiations prior to settlement when there is still leverage. For example, if they do not want to reduce the liens now and get a lesser but known amount, then it's their choice to wait a very long time for uncertainty of jury trial.

    Settlements for slip and fall injuries do not fall into an 'average' range. Evaluating personal injury cases requires looking at many factors unique to that person and the specifics of their accident case. Slip and fall cases require proof of liability, that the store did something it should not have done or failed to do something it should have done which caused your injuries. Here's how settlement values are calculated: BLUE LINK BELOW

    Going up against insurance claims adjusters without experience in pursuing claims, knowledge about the internal insurance company procedues and the ability to initiate civil litigation smoothly if required is in fact going to devalue your case. This is not what you want to hear. But, claims adjusters are trained licensed professionals. They work for the insurance industry, which is part of the financial services sector of the economy. This means that their basic fundamental duty is to...

    My office generally sends out correspondence confirming retention fairly soon after the fee agreement is signed. Client contact generally depends on the issues, the client and the dynamics of the case. Some clients simply want no contact at all because they know my office is professional an experienced and they want us to push things along so that they can get it off their minds and leave the details to us. Other clients want and expect frequent contact. These are the two extremes. We do...

    One of the best things I've ever done in my practice is to join associations of attorneys in my practice areas. For example, the Massachusetts Academy of Trial Lawyers, The American Association of Justice, the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys, I also belong to a county bar association. Groups like this provide invaluable networking, occassional referrals, and more important a contact or two to call with questions. I know you have regional and local groups over there...
