  • Adjuster reviews a medical package a attorney sent to him & they match the no fault medical record.

    Will the adjuster next move be to put a value on injured claims?, also do attorneys consider Nationwide insurance company to be the hardest company to negotiate settlement claims.

    Craig’s Answer

    • Selected as best answer

    The adjuster will seek authority to resolve the case. The decision to make an offer or deny the claim is generally done by a manager or supervisor. The offer or denial will then be transmitted to your attorney. Speaking for myself, Nationwide is not the most difficult.

  • How do you notify the Court that Appellant did not supply it with an accurate and full copy of the record? What can we do?

    Adversary filed a brief, and record (perfection of appeal). Record includes exhibits from previous submissions by adversary, and attached exhibits to those submissions, but only includes some of our submissions with none of the exhibits that were ...

    Craig’s Answer

    The record on appeal should only contain those documents the lower court considered in arriving at its decision. If it was not a joint record which was approved, then you should be able to correct the omission. Assuming you have no attorney helping you, contact the clerk's office at the department where the appeal was filed. In most instances, they are very helpful.

  • Can I litigate against a Spanish Hotel Chain.

    had hip replace in Spain, multiple expenses - loss of income due to therapy and complications. Hotel Chain Which is quoted in all of the travel sites in U.S. Expedia etc Fell due to height difference and broke leg bones requiring H...

    Craig’s Answer

    Unless the chain has a presence in the U.S., chances are you may have to sue in Spain. That may not be your only difficulty. You will have to hire an engineer in Spain or familiar with the country's building codes to determine if the height of the steps constituted a violation. Whatever attorney your consult with, make sure he/she is familiar with the jurisdictional issues that will be raised.

  • Lawyer and surgeon manipulated me into get an operation. Is there anything I can do.

    I was involved in a car accident in 2011, surgery was recommended and performed on a shoulder in September that year. There was a case that lost in arbitration in March of this year. My lawyer lied and said arbitration was mandatory because of my ...

    Craig’s Answer

    It is not unusual to proceed via arbitration when dealing with the SUM portion of your policy and it may very well have been mandatory pursuant to your policy. Also, going after the SUM coverage assumes that you settled your case against the primary carrier for the full limits of your policy. The arbitrator may have felt you were adequately compensated in the first instance. You are always free to contact a lawyer to pursue a possible malpractice claim against your attorney but be prepared to back up the claims you've set forth above. You would still have to prove you would have won at arbitration had it not been for your attorneys wrongful conduct.

  • Demand letter.

    If a attorney sends notification letters to the adjuster to kindly forward policy limits, while the adjuster is in the process of reviewing no fault medical records & medical records from the injured surgeon & chiropractor treatment but doesn't se...

    Craig’s Answer

    Just because your attorney sent out a letter demanding the policy does not mean the carrier has to comply. You may very well wind up with the policy limits but it may take some negotiating to get there.

  • Personal injury

    How long do it takes to recieve a economist report and what normally happens afterward

    Craig’s Answer

    There is no set time for the receipt of a report. Much of it depends on where the case is in terms of the note of issue or trial date. You should ask your attorney. What happens afterwards is also a function of where the case is from a calendar standpoint. Generally speaking your attorney will either exchange the report and/or exchange a 3101(d) experts response or both. Again, this is something you and your attorney should be talking about.

    Craig’s Answer

    Given your situation, you should contact an attorney that handles Postal Compensation claims. You don't state why the claim was denied but it's been a year since the decision and your time to file an appeal or re-open the case may be at risk. If you had an attorney representing you the first time, you must contact him/her as soon as possible. If not, you must consult with someone specializing in federal worker's comp immediately.

    She had an accident which caused supposed injuries to a couple whose car was following her.in their car. She owns a home in Connecticut. She has been contacted by the other people that they are suing her for their supposed injuries and is afraid t...

    Craig’s Answer

    The question can't be answered with the information provided. That being said, in theory the answer is yes assuming the plaintiff obtains a judgment against your client in excess of the available policy limits and the judgment is entered in Connecticut. As a practical matter, it is unlikely to occur but if your client is concerned, she needs to consult with personal counsel to discuss it. Her assigned insurance company attorney will not involve himself/herself in these issues.
