    I recommend you submit your bills to your own auto insurance carrier - my colleagues are correct when they refer to your PIP carrier here. Once that coverage is all used up, you can then submit your bills to your own health insurance carrier if you have that type of coverage. I suggest you consult with a personal injury lawyer who handles auto accidents and auto insurance matters to make sure that your PIP carrier is doing everything in a proper manner for you. If your PIP carrier makes a...

    A lot of bar associations around the country have fee dispute committees. I suggest that you contact the local bar association fee dispute committee to discuss this further. They may be able to help you or they may point you in the right direction if they can't directly help you. You may also want to contact a plaintiffs personal injury lawyer in your area who handles legal malpractice cases. That lawyer may be able to provide additional assistance.

    This may be the cause for a medical malpractice claim, but the damages may be limited under the circumstances you write about. I recommend that you contact a personal injury lawyer that is conveniently located to you. More often than not, personal injury lawyers offer clients free consultations and then handle cases on what is called a contingent fee - meaning that the attorney only gets paid if you settle or win your case. A personal injury lawyer will help you to determine if you have a case...

    A physician can be sued even if they do not have malpractice insurance. You should not let that deter you in bringing a potential claim if you believe you have been harmed by the professional negligence of a doctor. I suggest that you contact a personal injury lawyer in your area that handles medical malpractice cases. These lawyers will typically see you for free (a free initial consultation) and, if they agree to take your case, they will typically handle your case on a contingent fee basis (...

    You should contact a local plaintiffs personal injury lawyer and schedule an appointment to discuss your case in further detail. These lawyers offer free consultations and if they take your case, they typically handle your case on a contingent fee basis, so they only get paid if you settle or win your case. This way you can see if you make a claim against the at fault party or if you have to bring a claim against your own insurance carrier. Good luck.

    This is absolutely tragic. You should contact a personal injury lawyer in your area who handles medical malpractice cases. These attorneys will offer you a free consultation and, will take your case on a contingent fee basis - meaning they will only get paid if you settle or win your case. I suggest you act quickly given your comments about sketchy and incomplete records.

  7. Is support required to a adult child that may have autisism it was not addressed in the support decree? For PA.

    In Pennsylvania, child support is not required for adult children with disabilities, but - it can be consented to if both parents agree to it. SInce your support issue was already addressed, it may be a better approach for your adult child to apply for Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income benefits (SSI). You should contact an attorney to address your specific issues.

    Generally, no - they have their own car and their own auto insurance covering their car. Now, it becomes a different story if you did something to cause the car accident. If you let them drive when you have reason to believe that they cannot safely drive, you can be liable for an accident they are involved in. Also, if you do something to cause them to not be able to drive safely, you can then be liable for an accident they are involved in.

    Ultimately it appears that you are responsible for your medical bills and this does not seem like a case of legal malpractice. Your attorney may have been able to negotiate a discount for you on your medical bills at the time of the settlement, but you may be able to do the same thing now. Perhaps you should consider entering into a payment plan on the medical bills or low-ball a one time flat rate payment out of the settlement proceeds.

    You may want to have your Dad send a letter to his attorney authorizing his attorney to speak with you directly. Your Dad should indicate the he is also copying you in on the letter. Once sufficient time has gone by, e.g. about 5 days, call the lawyer and tell him that you are following up on the letter of authorization that your father recently sent to him. Then specifically address the questions that you have. It will be helpful to talk with your Dad in great detail before the call so that...
