  • What can I do? Can I get the police report amended? Can I appeal the insurance decision?

    I was t-boned on 12/2/2015. I had pulled out of a parking spot and began executing a 3 point turn (note: NOT a u-turn). There was a double parked car waiting for my parking spot blocking on coming traffic in the east bound lane and the west bound ...

    Craig’s Answer

    The further you get from the accident date, the less likely you'll be able to get the report amended if at all. You can only "appeal" the insurance decision with any degree of success if you have some proof other than your say so. Consider engaging an attorney to deal with the insurance company.

    What happens when opposing counsel does not make defendant available for deposition, after several request by plaintiffs counsel? Plaintiff has already given deposition.

    Craig’s Answer

    Your friend should be discussing this with her attorney. The insurance company is going to look for every opportunity to minimize its exposure. That being said, your friend not receiving needed medical care may work against her. I'm not sure what disability agency you are referring to but I think her attorney is the one that should be addressing the issues raised.

  • If I ammend a. Verified complaint does it need to be verified again?

    I'm ammending my original complaint changing it from being under DRl 170(7) to DRL 170(1) with a request for a jury trial. Does this amended complaint need to be "verified" and if so what is required to do that?

    Craig’s Answer

    If the original pleading required a verification then the amended complaint requires one as well. The same form verification can be used, it just has to indicate you are verifying an amended pleading.
