  • Do I have a case?

    Parking attendant scratched my car. Filed a claim and the company still hasn't contacted me. It's been 4 months.

    Adam’s Answer

    I always recommend to contact a local attorney to walk you through the process. You should be able to get a free consultation.

    If you do not contact an attorney, contact your insurance company and, provided that you have the appropriate coverage, they help you fix your vehicle and, obtain payment from the responsible entity.

    GOOD LUCK.

  • Should 2nd Term Of PT be factored in with future medical to move along case or continue bill of 15K in Auto Accident

    Personal Injury...At-Fault Driver Insurance Already Took Responsibility Medical Bills Total 15K With Surgery ...Lost Income 10k..Doctors Prescribed 2nd Term Of PT

    Adam’s Answer

    First of all, I do not understand your question.

    Second of all, from what I can try to understand, if you do not have any attorney, consult with one immediately. The consultation should be free. There are many quality options here on AVVO.

    Third of all, if you have an Attorney, he/she is the best person to answer your question and, I do not think that he/she would like you posting about your claim on Social Media.

    Good luck

    My initial advise is always to contact a lawyer.

    If you do not contact a lawyer, and I address your question, you have a legal responsibility to report this to your insurance company so that they could launch a proper investigation. If you do not contact them within a reasonable amount of time after you became aware of the facts that you outlined, I believe that your insurance company has the right to deny providing you the protections within your policy.

    I imagine that an attorney in your area for a small fee could assist you in properly notifying your insurance company or, assist you with addressing all of the protections that you may need.

  • I was in a car accident without insurance

    I was going down snyder avenue And the cab was turning off a Point Breeze Ave he couldn't make the turn and ran into my car.I was the uninsured driver

    Adam’s Answer

    I think that your best option is to consult with an Attorney.

    As for your question, since in your words you, "do not have insurance", you have to be aware at the legal application of Pennsylvania law if you are injured and, want to bring a claim OR, if someone else was injured and they bring a claim. Since it would be impossible based on the facts provided to give any legal direction because, I am not convinced just yet that you were in fact "uninsured", you should consult with an attorney. I do not think that any attorney could give you concrete direction with the question that you presented.

    If you do not want to consult with an attorney, please do the following: prior to making a statement that you "did not have any insurance", you should consult with anyone who had an ownership interest in your motor vehicle to see if they insured the motor vehicle that you were driving or, if a family member that you lived with has a motor vehicle insurance policy. You still may be insured.

    GOOD LUCK AND, THE BEST ADVISE THAT YOU COULD GET IS TO FIND AN ATTORNEY THAT WILL MEET WITH YOU FOR A FREE CONSULTATION.

  • I am terminally ill and have a personal injury lawsuit pending. I am creating a will, do I include this potential settlement in

    the will. Or is this something that is not included in the will and the settlement will go to the estate once they replace me as the plaintiff should I die?

    Adam’s Answer

    This question is best posed for the Attorney drafting your Will.

  • If a police report states the opposite party's liability in an incident, what is the usual time frame for a settlement?

    The opposite party ran a light and I was forced into a 40mph collision with the other vehicle. It has been 9 days since the police report was issued, and there has been no response from the other insurance company. I have left numerous voicemails ...

    Adam’s Answer

    The other insurance company is in no rush to address your claim. On the other hand, your insurance company, has a fiduciary duty to address your needs provided that you have the appropriate coverage. Your insurance company should be your first call provided that you do not hire an attorney. Please note that you should always consult with an attorney to outline your options. The consult is free so, why not? Much like sustaining a knee injury, you consult with a doctor to create a care path to best help you recover from your injury. Why, because he is a professional who is in the best position to help you. I would not attempt to navigate this insurance mine field without an attorney. By waiting, you increase your chances of making a fatal mistake.

    I rear ended someone a few months ago doing about 15mph...there was minimal bumper damage and driver appeared to be perfectly fine. Well apparently she is now suing for injuries and my insurance company is State Farm. Although I wasn't cited for...

    Adam’s Answer

    These types of questions should be addressed with State Farm Insurance Company or, the attorney that State Farm Insurance Company provides for you to defend you in these claims. Should State Farm Insurance Company refuse to indemnify you then, you should contact an attorney immediately.
