    You really need to consult an attorney regarding the value of your case. Are there any out of pocket medical bills and/or wage loss? What is your diagnosis and prognosis? How did the collision occur? Was the collision caused by a drunk driver? All these questions and more need to be answered before an evaluation of your case can be made. As noted in the earlier answer, each case has its' own specific set of facts and value.

    If your sister, or the vehicle she was operating, was covered by motor vehicle insurance at the time of the collision, that insurance company should provide a lawyer to defend against the lawsuit. In Pennsylvania insurers defend and indemnify (pay for any judgment or verdict) up to the limits of the bodily injury liability coverage. The cost of defense is separate from the liability limit. If you were injured, and it is less than two years from the collision, in Pennsylvania, you may also be...

    Yes. You should definitely get a lawyer to represent you. The convenience store will have an insurance company and eventually a lawyer to represent them in your claim. You also need representation.

    There are so many variables in order to fully evaluate your case. Did the fractured ankle require surgery? Did you miss time from work? Who is your health insurer? These are all types of questions that need to be answered prior to placing a value on your case. You should really contact a personal injury attorney to discuss your case. I see you are located in Allentown. We have offices in Allentown and would be available to discuss your case.

    Under Pennsylvania Law, a defendant shall deliver the settlement funds to plaintiff's attorney within twenty calendar days from receipt of a signed release. It sounds as if the defendant has delivered the settlement funds to your attorney. However, there is an outstanding subrogation lien issue holding up payment of the settlement monies to you. You need to contact your attorney to see why the subrogation issue was not resolved sooner and what is taking so long now to resolve the subrogation...

    Yes. You can be sued on a theory of negligent entrustment for allowing your daughter to use your vehicle, even if your daughter has her own insurance. Attorneys for the person who is making the claim will look to both your insurance as the owner of the car, and your daughter's insurance, as driver of the car. Under the right circumstances, both may be liable to cover the injuries of the other driver.

    Liability policies usually cover only negligent acts. If your neighbor was negligent as she flew up the street and struck you (as opposed to intentionally running you down), she is liable for your injuries and you can bring a lawsuit against her.

    You do not need to contact your insurance company since the bus driver admitted fault. However, if you have any injuries, you will need to open a claim with your own insurance company to make sure your medical bills are paid. Under Pennsylvania Law, your own insurance will provide first party medical benefits to you. Contacting your mother's insurance company will provide coverage for the damage to your mother's car. However, you may also be able to go through the bus company's insurance to...

  10. How can I gain guardianship of my sister?

    Under Pennsylvania Law, you need to Petition the Court to have your sister declared "incompetent", due to the injuries suffered in the collision. In the same Petition, you can ask to be appointed Guardian of your sister. You will need to attach copies of medical records to the Petition to show the Court that your sister is unable to handle her own affairs. You really need an attorney to prepare and file the Petition for Incompetency and Appointment of a Guardian.
