    This sounds like it is a property damage issue only. In which case you will likely have a hard time finding a lawyer to assist you on a contingency basis. If there is a personal injury component, then most lawyers assisting with that claim will also work with you on property damage. If you are interested in handling yourself, and a reasonable offer is not made by insurance company, then you can pursue small claims court if value of car is under $5,000.00.

    I advise my clients there case may take anywhere from two to five years to reach resolution. Every case is different and there is no way to predict the cases lifeline except to ensure your attorney diligently prosecutes the case. I have had cases resolve the same day I was hired and I have had cases go through trial and an appeal taking 6 or 7 years to reach a resolution. Your health will also dictate where any potential settlement discussions go because you want to have the best picture of...

    If you do not have an Attorney go get one. The insurance company is not your friend and its interest is to make sure you do not get paid. You should be careful with the amount of information you share a it could harm your ability to prosecute a personal injury case. Also it sounds like this happened at a bar so depending on circumstances this could be an intentional act which would not be covered by insurance.

    A section 32 is a settlement of your claim. There are many factors that weigh into what advice you will be given. You should schedule a meeting with your attorney and determine what works best for you. If you are not happy with your lawyer then you can select a new lawyer without any additional cost to you.

    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.

    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...
