    The best way to get help is to consult with a personal injury attorney in your area. It sounds like you've been trying to do this on your own. That is a mistake.

  • I need to get my car (totaled) looked at by a profession to state how fast the accident happened at , if black box etc... In the

    South Carolina area. I can not find it on the internet I had it.... this person would also go to court and share his or her findings. I understand that I also need a lawyer, but I want this done first.

    Craig’s Answer

    Get the lawyer first and let him/her deal with the vehicle. You may be doing damage to your case by trying to do this on your own.

  • What is the web for plaintiff pro-se, as how to represent at trial.

    Cannot afford a lawyer, and do not know what to show jury, cross a examination and therefore. Please, assist me in this matter! Thank you.

    Craig’s Answer

    There is no "one size fits all" in trial practice. You don't even indicate what kind of case is involved. You should keep searching for an attorney to take your case or, in the alternative, you may qualify for some kind of legal aide where you can obtain some guidance. What you're asking in a post such as this is nearly impossible to answer.

  • How does client get adjournment of court date when lawyer has not replied despite numerous requests?

    My father was involved in a bad car accident, we hired lawyer for him. Case is in Kings County Supreme. Court preliminary conference date, 1 defendant adjourned 1st time. 2nd preliminary conference date, 2nd defendant didn't bother to show. Law...

    Craig’s Answer

    A preliminary conference is for the purpose of the court setting down a discovery schedule, in other words dates by which depositions etc., need to be completed. Adjourning will only delay the case from moving forward and is probably unnecessary. If your father and the attorney are unable to communicate, it's probably time to consider a new attorney.

  • Plaintiff pro-se vs defense attorney,civil, consumer fraud.

    Defendant submitted summary judgment. Plaintiff wrote his opposition. Defendant submitted reply to my opposition. Do plaintiff have to oppose again, or wait for the judge to reply to both of us? Thanks.

    Craig’s Answer

    There is generally no right of sur-reply. At this point it's simply a matter of waiting for either a notification that you will be orally arguing the motion or a written decision. Good luck.

  • Car insurance tells me my car doesn't have full coverage but the car hasn't been paid off,What should I do?

    My car was hit last week while it was parked and I saw when it happened. The person at fault left the scene and I was able to obtain the licence plate number and made a police report but my insurance now tells me that they ran the plates and that ...

    Craig’s Answer

    The burden is yours to make sure you have the coverage you need on a vehicle. Unfortunately there may be little you can do here other then bringing a direct action against the owner/driver of the offending vehicle. UM coverage is mandatory in NY but I do not believe it covers property damage. Lesson learned; make sure you're covered.

    Craig’s Answer

    Your question is not clear but does not appear to be a legal one. Ask the clerk at the office where you requested the records how long it will take before they are available or what forms or procedures need to followed in order to access them.

  • Should I seek an attorney?

    I bought my first used car at a dealership recently and was financed through a bank seeing as how I didn't have good credit my mom consigned for me a month later I got tboned in a storm and found out that I had no comp or collision bc apparently I...

    Craig’s Answer

    Not sure why you would take the bank off either. Why isn't the other drivers policy covering you for this accident? You should sit down with an attorney and bring all the relevant paperwork with you. Something doesn't sound right here.

  • Answer a motion for summary judgment with great evidence . My former attorney filed the note of issue with no evidence ?

    I have a finding of simple negligence from SED and an expert witness .

    Craig’s Answer

    What is your question? If you have what you believe is evidence that supports your position, turn it over to your attorney so he can properly defend the summary judgment motion. It's your case so if you have lost confidence in your attorney, you can always consider a change. That being said, it will be difficult to find someone to take over a case at this late stage so your best bet may be to be certain he/she is aware of this great evidence.

  • Did I do the right thing by filing a claim

    Craig’s Answer

    Not sure what your question is. What claim did you file? If it a malpractice claim, you will have to file a certificate indicating that the claim is meritorious. This is not something you should be handling on your own. I suggest you contact an attorney qualified to handle medmal actions as soon as possible or the claim may be subject to dismissal.
