    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).

    I'm sorry about your situation. You need to 1. file an answer if you haven't done so already. Your answer should include your statements above; 2. You need to show up in court with all of the documentation you previously brought. 3. Show that documentation to the attorney representing the credit card company and to the judge when your case is called. A bench trial means that there is no jury and things should go very quickly. In the long run, having a lawyer with you on the day of trial...

    You need to speak with your lawyer directly about this. A lot depends on the available insurance coverage, the venue available for you to file a potential lawsuit and other factors. You can ask him to run a case value search through the New York Jury Verdict reporter for similar jury verdict outcomes so that you and your attorney can get an idea of what your approximate case value range is. Just know that the reporter does not report every single verdict out there and case values are not an...

    You have a few choices here and I highly recommend that you speak with a knowledgeable Divorce Attorney to go over your specific case. I can give you some general options. Based upon the misrepresentations your wife made to you and your reliance on those misrepresentations, you may be able to annul the marriage for wrongfully obtained consent obtained through Force, Duress or Fraud. However, if you have been voluntarily co-habitating with your wife after discovering the fraud and before...

  5. Can my mother's nursing home release her when she has open bedsores

    Answered about 6 years ago.

    1 lawyer answer

    The first thing to do is to document the bedsores. Take pictures of them and make sure the facility has been put on notice of them. 10NYCRR sec. 415.12 contains a list of required care and treatments that the nursing home "ensured" will happen relating to and including pressure sores. In addition, NYCRR sec 415.12C(1) and (2) states that "the facility must ensure that 1. A resident who enters the facility whithout pressure sores does not develop pressure sores unless the individual's...

    I am surprised your insurance carrier paid any portion of the ambulance bill. As a pedestrian, your necessary medical coverage, including ambulance service, would normally be covered by the offending vehicle's no fault insurance. I'd be curious why your carrier denied a portion of the ambulance bill.. That being said, you should pay the outstanding amount of the ambulance bill so that it does not negatively affect your credit. As it is two years from the date of the accident, you are...

    If you can not get in touch with your attorney, you can view your case online at ecourts.com or go to the court clerk's office and get updated information. You can search by either your name as the plaintiff or by index number. Best of luck.

  8. Is there a time limitation for collecting a credit card debt in new york state.

    The statute of limitations in New York for collection of debt is generally six years from the date of the last transaction, since it appears that the last transaction was in '05, they are still within the time frame to commence litigation, but not for long. If Chase serves you with a summons/complaint, you have the right to hire an attorney and defend the matter. Feel free to call me at 631-445-7380 if you have any questions.

    Contact your lawyer and ask him or her when the Note of Issue must be filed per the Preliminary Conference Order. This is usually a guideline and not an exact date since adjournments occur for a variety of reasons. Generally, after all of the depositions (NY calls them EBT's) are taken, the Plaintiff must attend a defense Independent Medical Examination. Once all discovery is completed a Certification Conference is held in the Courthouse and the attorneys sign off on a legal document...

    The answer to your question depends on many factors including whether any of your injuries are pre-existing, your age, if you had any treatment other than physical therapy, if you can prove that you have permanent injuries under the New York State No Fault threshold. These can not be answered in this forum. You either need to sit down with your attorney and have him or her explain to you why this is the best settlement you can get or there is nothing in the law that prevents you from...
