    It is always advisable to contact a personal injury attorney. You may think tat you can settle the case by yourself, however, there may be issues that you are not aware of. For example, as a general rule, there is no coverage for no-fault benefits for motocycle riders in New York, as such, you may have to pay your own medical bills. If you settle your case for a low amount, you may "get stuck" with high medical bills. Another example is my recent client who filed a lawsuit by himself in an...

    If you are talking about settlement of your personal injuries, you may ask the insurance adjuster to either arbitrate or mediate your case, otherwise, your case should be litigated before a trial judge. If your question involves your no-fault claim, i.e. medical bills or lost wages which have not been paid, the outstanding no-fault claim has to be arbitrated.

    Sorry to hear about your loss. Your lawyer probably does not want to pursue the claim because now there is an issue of probate, which can be complicated. You may need to spend money on the probate, since your father's claim has to be handled by the Administrator of your Father's Estate, who has to be appointed and/or approved by the Probate Court. Also, without your father as a witness, there may not be enough evidence to prove the case, and/or not enough damages. Feel Free to call my office...

    As a practical matter, I would send a letter to the owner of the stolen car (by Regular and Certified mail), advising him of your position and listing all of the outstading damages that your insurance carrier is not covering. Advice him that unless a reasonable settlement agreement is reached, you intend to bring an action for negligence in Small Claims Court, where you can sue for up to $5,000.00. The men should know better then to leave keys in the car in Brooklyn, NY! If you get a response,...

    Yes, you can sue if you have legal and medical proof. Pictures also help, as well as documented medical records. I just settled a case for a few thousand dollars against a hotel. Sincerely, Tanya Gendelman, Esq.

    The offer of $3500 does not appear to be sufficient if you are still in pain after four months. You may have serious damages and may require additional medical treatment in the future. Consult with a personal injury attorney in San Pedro, California. Tanya Gendelman, Esq. www.WeSettle.com

    This is a civil matter. The home aid may be eligible for worker's compensation benefits under her employer. In addition, she would have to prove liability and permanent damages in order to sue you and win, this may not be easy to do in dog bite cases. If you do get sued by her, you would need to address the matter with a defense attorney, until then, I don't think you should worry about it too much.
