Almost 2 yrs ago I was struck by a out of control mini school bus while standing on the sidewalk. I had back, shoulder, & knee surgery. Fractured fibula and pelvis.
It means that you are one step closer to getting the case resolved, either by settlement or by trial. Speak with your lawyer directly for more detail.
Best of luck with your case,

Hire a lawyer to review the police report and other facts and circumstances surrounding the accident and deal with the insurance company. You might want an independent estimate of the value of your vehicle's damage, especially if you end up having to bring a property damage action in court.See question
The person who's been helping me get to my appointments never kept track of their miles through the odometer and really don't have much to go by except receipts for tolls for reimbursement. Is there a way to figure out the miles without shorten...
No Fault mileage is based upon the same reimbursement as New York Worker's Compensation. It can vary due to gas price fluctuations. Under the Regulation, you have 90 days from the date of the health service to claim your mileage or other transportation expenses. For mileage, you put down the name of the medical facility you visited and the address. If you went by car, you find the mileage from your home/work to the facility (you can use Mapquest) and just put down the miles. If you used public transportation, you must show receipts.
You may not be aware of this, but you are entitled to mileage reimbursement when you attend No Fault Medical Exams scheduled by your insurance company.
Fax or mail this information in to your No Fault Carrier with the claim number. Make sure you keep the fax confirmation.
If you wish, send me an email and I will send you the mileage reimbursement form I give to my own clients.

Unfortunately, with the NY courts being as busy as they are, lawsuits are slow in progressing to either trial or settlement. Since we don't know all of the facts as you present them, your current lawyer may have had very good reasons to wait this long to file the Note of Issue. There may have been discovery issues, motion practice (which takes a while to get through in the courts) and other delays which may have been out of his or her control, including the fact that you recently had surgery.
With the Note of Issue already filed, you will most likely not find too many personal injury lawyers to take over the case. I would not necessarily fire your current lawyer in haste. Instead, I would set up a meeting and speak to your lawyer about your overall concerns.
Best of luck.See question
i also had to have shoulder surgery. what can i do
I agree with the prior posters that you should obtain a second opinion. There may be facts which may have made your lawyer come to that conclusion that we have not been privy to on this forum. It may just be that your lawyer told you that the carrier won't pay anything to settle the case before going all the way to trial. A second opinion may help in clarifying your lawyer's conclusion.See question
none at the moment. Thank you
Yes to both, however, there are ways, prior to filing for bankruptcy, to attempt to lift the garnishment and make the creditor prove its claim. This scenario is fact-specific, so I recommend you speak with a debt-defense lawyer who can make a determination whether this option is feasible.See question

In addition to the answers given above, you should consult with a New York personal injury lawyer as soon as possible, as NYC schools, if they are not private, are considered municipal entities. You only have 90 days from the date of accident to file a Notice of Claim, which must be very specific.See question
I was hit in the back by a car. The person who hit me only has 25-50 insurance policy. I've been informed that my injuries exceed it.
Do you have Underinsured Motorist Coverage UIM on your own policy? Check with your broker or insurance company and find out how much you have. If you have purchased it, it would be more than the mandatory 25/50 coverage that all vehicles must have in NY. You would have to put your insurance carrier on notice of a UIM claim and comply with the conditions, including exhausting the coverage on the offending vehicle and obtaining permission from the UIM carrier to settle.See question

Call your own insurance company to report the accident as soon as possible. If you don't report within a certain number of days after the date of accident (per your policy), the company has the right to disclaim and won't cover you or any claim made by the "other person". Most insurance companies, including GEICO, have 24 hour claim reporting services. Also, if you do not have collision, call the other vehicle's insurance company to report property damage (property damage only).See question
