    I think you're missing the point. Lawyers go to school for three years, and then practice for years to learn how to win auto accident cases, and defend auto accident cases. We can't guess at what will happen on your case, other than you had a stop sign and are likely at fault. We haven't seen the Plaintiff's medical records so we can't begin to guess as to the whether they can meet threshold of a serious injury. I will tell you this, 100's of cases are dismissed each months by courts because...

    You should finish treating, get all your and your child's bills and records together, and meet with a personal injury attorney before considering settling.

    Assuming this is a public school, there is a requirement that you serve them with a Notice of Claim within 90 days of the accident. Since you are dealing with an infant, an attorney may be able to convince a Court to allow a late notice of claim, however, there is no guarantee. Assuming a late notice of claim is permitted, then there will be no legal impediment to your bringing suit. Please note, however, that in NY schools are not insurers of a child safety. They are obligated to provide the...

    Good question. Hiring the wrong attorney here, will cost your female friends a ton of money. Be extremely careful interviewing the attorneys regarding how they intend to proceed. Virtually every nightclub in NY has a policy that excludes coverage for injuries caused by assault and battery. If the attorney says they will argue Negligent Hiring and Negligent Supervision, move on. In NY claims of negligent supervision and hiring are excluded by the Assault & Battery exclusion. If they plead...

    Small claims is all you got. No fault will cover any medical treatment/lost wages, and your own SUM coverage would cover other personal injury related recoveries if warranted.

    You can,of course, sue the truck that hit you without at lawyer, and sure, you can negotiate with experienced insurance professionals, but that would be a huge mistake. Insurance companies love unrepresented individuals that distrust lawyers. If liability is good, and the injury is as you indicate a fractured knee, many firms, mine included, will charge you less than a third. It sounds like you don't have a good working relationship with your current attorney that you feel like you can't...

    It is not uncommon in this type of accident for the insurance companies to apportion liability between both drivers. The person that turned into your lane will claim they signaled and you had plenty of time. Generally, liability is apportioned 80-90 percent to the driver the guy that changed lanes. If you think you can do better than that you can refuse their offer, and go to court.

    I've been practicing insurance law, including life insurance law for 25 years in NY. Your answer "No" is a misrepresentation. If you were to die within two years of the policy being issued, the carrier might be able to avoid payment because of that misrepresentation, however, the fact that you disclosed that you were a "hepatitis B. virus carrier" in all probability negates the misrepresentation, and I think it would be really hard for for a carrier to avoid liability because of that. You...

    Read the ticket carefully. Plead not guilty. Take photos of entire area. Try not to tell the judge that you going the wrong way down a one way street.
