  • 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.

    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

    I sustained a stab wound to my forearm and I went to the emergency room. I was x-rayed and there were no findings that no bone were shattered, but the knife went all the way through. After the x-ray I was then stitched on bot sides of my wound And...

    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.

  • Under Emotional distress (negligent), 3 years status of limitation code is: 75A N.Y. Jur. 2d Limitations and Laches § 21

    What is this code? "75A N.Y. Jur. 2d Limitations and Laches § 21" and how it can be used in motions to courts.

    Craig’s Answer

    NY Jur. 2d is not a code. The statute of limitations for negligence based actions can be found in Article 2 of the CPLR. As suggested, consult with and give serious thought to engaging an attorney.

  • What kind of lawyer do i need and what action should i take against my attacker

    I was stabbed and attacked by a fellow truck driver. I want to sue for pain and suffering and damages. I was on the clock and so should the other driver be.

    Craig’s Answer

    When you say fellow truck driver, do you mean an employee of the same company you work for? This and other other issues will have to be addressed to determine what courses of action are available to you. You should contact a worker's comp attorney as well as a qualified personal injury attorney. Assuming there are criminal charges pending against the other driver, your PI attorney will have an interest in and should be monitoring the outcome of that matter. Good luck.

  • Someone crashed into my car, and now my neck hurts. Do Insurance companies ever pay for a Chiropractor?

    Someone crashed into my car, and now my neck hurts. Do Insurance companies ever pay for a Chiropractor?

    Craig’s Answer

    The answer is yes assuming you timely file your no-fault application. You only have 30 days to file so if you haven't yet received an application, contact your insurance company at once.

  • I need help with a car accident where no one was hurt but there was property damage

    last February I was backing out of my driveway and another person was backing out of their driveway and they hit my car the cops were called and information was exchanged but while trying to get everything settled so I could get my car fixed we fo...

    Craig’s Answer

    I hope that your insurance company was on notice given the fact this took place a year ago. If you have collision, let your carrier do the repairs and let them worry about who the other party's correct insurance company is. That's what you have insurance for.

  • Can the accident medical case be reopen if another surgery recommended by a doctor?

    The case is still in process however my attorney said that medical case is closed now and I have to pay out of my pocket. The settlement has not been reached yet .

    Craig’s Answer

    I assume this is a no-fault question. If it has been a year or more since you were last treated then it is likely that your no fault case is closed. If you have other insurance you may try putting the bills through it although coverage may be denied on the basis that it is motor vehicle accident related treatment.
