    What you should do is to get an experienced personal injury attorney to act as your personal attorney, in addition to the attorney your insurance company will hire to defend you. That attorney, who should be an experienced personal injury lawyer, with trial experience, should be able to position you so that you can have your carrier provide full coverage and not have your assets exposed. This is especially true when dealing with a company like GEICO, which has undertaken a campaign of forcing...

    Your question is not capable of a direct answer. You need to schedule a meeting with your lawyer and sit down with a written list of issues you want to review, including the questions you post here. I presume your case is pending in NJ. How long it takes will depend upon when the complaint was filed, when the answer was filed and which county you are in, as each county takes a different length of time to reach its cases. Whether you should settle or how long for the carrier to make an offer...

    Report to your carrier sooner rather than later and then contact a lawyer when you get home to help you work through this morass. GEICO will not be your friend in this situation.

    Not sure what information you are looking for. If you already have a lawyer, you should direct this question to that person. The treatment is pursuant to a schedule, approved by the legislature and the Department of Banking and Insurance. There is a 2 year statute of limitations in NJ to file a suit for personal injuries - must be filed before 2 year anniversary of accident date. The renter's insurance should have the so-called PIP coverage that provides first party medical coverage. If...

    That is why you have a lawyer. Every case is different, despite what you may think. Your neighbor's case is not your case. It is not likely that you will be sued, since it appears the only one who may sue you is your son. Speak with the lawyer who has helped you thus far, if you have more questions.

    Working for cash, off the books is tax fraud and a crime. Any effort you make at trying to collect such lost wages may expose you to having your and your employers' actions reported to IRS. Not a good idea.

    Much more information is needed. Usually the property owner wild be liable, but a snow removal company may indemnify them. You need to see an attorney immediately. Use find a lawyer feature to locate one near you, and look for one who is not only experienced, but also a member of NJAJ and/or AAJ, organizations whose members are devoted to assisting injured parties.

    You should use the AVVO find a lawyer button to locate a lawyer to help you. The right to compensation from an assault is determined by proof that satisfies a "preponderance of the evidence" standard. The criminal charges have to satisfy the "proof beyond a reasonable doubt" standard. That much higher standard may be why the police did not pursue the criminal charges. A good personal injury lawyer (and there are many in the Woodbridge area) should be able to help you.
