    Your case is totally fact dependent. An attorney will need to review all of the facts. You should obtain needed medical care and treatment immediately and follow the doctor's advice. Do not give any statements to the adverse party or insurance company nor grant them access to any medical records. Photograph the injuries and the damage done to any property. Contact a personal injury attorney in your area as soon as possible so that you can protect your rights. You may also find it helpful to review the Legal Guides I have published on Avvo.com dealing with many of the issues you are now facing.

  • Do I need to respond to this attorney letter?

    I received a letter from a lawyer saying an infant child slipped and fell on my property, and that I should forward this letter to insurance or my attorney and have them call him to discuss. What the hell is that? I've seen attorney demand letters...

    Lars’s Answer

    My thought is that you are jeopardizing your homeowners or renters insurance coverage by not forwarding this Bozo letter onto them. Forward the letter.

    Lars’s Answer

    You seem to have some strange friends who I would not call friends. Your so-called friends seem to be blowing hot air. I would disregard them. They have no damages and no cause of action. They have not been injured based on your posting.

    The outcome of your case is totally fact dependent. It is unfortunate that you did not originally hired a litigator to represent your interests.

    You should obtain needed medical care and treatment immediately and follow the doctor's advice. Do not give any statements to the adverse party or insurance company nor grant them access to any medical records. Photograph the injuries and the damage done to any property.

  • I was hit by an un-insured motorist in Texas

    I was hit by an un-insured driver, and since I myself only have liability, my insurance company pretty much said I was SOL.

    Lars’s Answer

    If you didn't protect yourself by purchasing uninsured motorist coverage, you are most probably left with the prospect of suing the uninsured driver in the appropriate court and attempting to wring money from him after you obtain a judgment. If he is judgment proof, you will be spinning your wheels and wasting your money.

  • What can I Do if I was hit in a car accident and other person is lying to avoid being Liable and insurance found them not liable

    I was Rear ended and at first the person who did it said that they would take liability for the accident. once everything was filed he told a different story than what had happened and since the witness couldn't be contacted they belived his story...

    Lars’s Answer

    You will need to file suit against the adverse driver in the appropriate court. You will have an opportunity to present your testimony and any witness testimony to prove that this person rear-ended you. Insurance companies do not determine fault, but they are always looking for any excuse to deny payment. If you get a judgment against their insured, they will pay it.
