    Attorneys provide a service to clients, and just like any other business, you have the right to choose who work with and who you want to represent you. There is no additional expense in your situation to switch attorneys. So, if you are not happy, find someone who will appreciate your business and provide the type of service you expect.

    There are a number of details missing which will determine if you have a valid case. The first concern is whether or not the statute of limitations has passed. You should consult with an attorney as soon as possible about your ability to bring a claim.

    Yes you can bring a claim. Under NY law the property must be maintained free and clear of dangerous or hazardous conditions. If the property owner or management committee knew, or should have know of the problem there was a duty to fix it. Our office handles personal injury cased in western and central NY and can help you fight for the damages to which you are entitled.

    Not typically. If the fight occurred on your property or at event you were hosting there may be some potential liability dependent on the facts of the case. If your son's permanent residence if your home then he should be considered a resident insured and covered by your homeowner's insurance policy. So if he happen to get sued for personal injuries, depending on the nature of the claim, he may be covered. If he is used for an intentional act there will be no insurance coverage and he will have...

    Under your insurance policy Geico has an obligation to provide you a defense and indemnification up to your limits above $300,000. Any award or judgment in excess of that amount would be the responsibility of your husband. The primary issue for you to be concerned about is the severity of the infant plaintiff's injuries and whether or not there is a chance the case is worth more than the insurance coverage. Geico must attempt to resolve the case within the policy limit if there is sufficient...

    Yes you can be sued but if the evidence is as strong as you say it is then the case against you should not go very far. Your attorney, hired by the insurance company, will have to go through the discovery process and then move for dismissal of the case agyer everyone testifies about the accident.

    Yes you can be sued as the owner of the vehicle. However, if the driver of the vehicle did not have your permission to drive it at the time of the accident you have a defense to the claim. Under NY Vehicle & Traffic Law 388 it presumes that anyone driving a vehicle has the permission of the owner. So the burden will be on you to prove the driver did not have permission. Adivse your insurance company immediately about this and an attorney will be assigned to your case to help you fight it.

    The police report itself is not evidence which can be used in the case. However, it does give a good road map of the anticipated versions of the accident. There are a lot of details that go into the evaluation of an individual defendant's potential liability and will have to be based on the actual facts. Your question lacks the details to provide that kind of analysis. If you are unhappy with your lawyer please let that person know and give them a chance to redeem himself or herself. If you...

    As this accident involved an emergency vehicle the conduct of the driver may have to be established a reckless versus negligent depending on whether there was a corresponding emergency. In addition there is a 90 day notice requirement. I advise you contact an attorney to determine your rights. I am available for a free consultation.
