    Your son should not plead guilty and should attend the hearing on the ticket. He may have to pay the fine in advance to do so. When he appears at the hearing, he should tell provide his explanation of how the accident occurred. If he is not comfortable doing that alone, then he should hire a local attorney to appear with him. If he was injured, he should immediately contact an attorney who handles personal injury claims. Also, if you have not already done so, you should report this to...

    You may take the driver and owner of the garbage truck to small claims court to recover your property damage, even if your own automobile insurance and lapsed. Since your insurance lapsed, you are treated as if you had selected "limited tort" insurance for any potential bodily injury claims. That means, you can only recover for your injuries. You should discuss your claim with an attorney specializing in personal injury law. Best of luck with your claim

    I am sorry to hear about your horrible accident and devistating injuries. You have a very significant claim and it would be impossible to adequately evaluate your case before your surgery is completed and the extent of your physical recovery and total economic losses can be evaluated. There is likely at least One Million Dollars in insurance coverage available. You should retain the service of a very experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible to insure that your interest are...

    Unfortunately, when you select Limited Tort Coverage you are only able to recover for very serious injuries. Nevertheless, you are still entitled to recover for any lost wages, unpaid medical expenses and other out of pocket costs. You should review your right with a Personal Injury Attorney if you have not already done so. Also, I would suggest that you contact your insurance broker to discuss how the costs of changing your coverage to Full Tort with Under and Uninsured Motorist Coverage....

    The fact that your parents filed for bankruptcy does not prevent you for being sued for an auto accident . You do not have to be 21 to be sued individually, only 18. The lawsuit is subject to a 2 year statute of limitations. Unless the lawsuit was filed within 2 years of the accident it may be barred. You should consult with a personal injury lawyer.

    I am sorry to hear about your son's injury. I would characterize his injury as a serious one due to the potential for long term consequences. I would caution you against attempting to evaluate what would be a fair settlement without the assistance of an attorney specializing in personal injury cases. To properly evaluate the case, an attorney will obtain copies of all of the relevant medical records including reports dealing with potential future complications. Only after completely...

    I am sorry to hear about this terrible accident. It sounds as if the Truck driver was negligent and in violation of a number of laws dealing with the operation of trucks on the roadway. You and your mother are likely entitled to be compensated for your pain and suffering, lost wages, out of pocket expenses and for emotional distress related to this accident. You should immediately contact a personal injury attorney to protect your rights. I invite you to review my 35 years of experience on...
