    You should consult with a personal injury lawyer if you have not done so already. Maybe an exception applies which changes your limited tort status to full tort. It is also possible that you were never limited tort to begin with. If you are subject to limited tort and no exception applies, you are limited to a recovery of economic damages unless you can prove you sustained a serious injury. Given that you don't believe your injuries are serious, it is doubtful you can convince a fact finder...

    I am sorry to hear about your accident and hope you and your mother heal quickly. If you have not already done so, you should consider hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer as soon as possible.

If you have any questions, feel free to give me a call. My firm handles trucking accident cases throughout the State of Pa...

  3. Do I need to hire an attorney for a car accident I was in which was not my fault? My teenage daughter is suffering from pain.

    Many accidents result in the occupants of the vehicles not feeling pain at the scene. This can be for a variety of reasons. The fact that the accident was a non-reportable accident does not preclude your daughter from seeking appropriate medical care and consulting with an attorney to see about the potential merits of a case. You should contact an automobile accident attorney as soon as possible to discuss how to best proceed.

    Not an easy case. It is possible the paint is not proper and unsafe when wet but this requires experts and testing. So unless your injuries are serious you may have trouble finding a lawyer to take your case. It is probably worth a consult with a Pittsburgh personal injury lawyer.

  5. Although I signed a Settlement Agreement, does my husband still have a claim against the insurance company/Defendants?

    No he does not. Your husband's claim is a derivative claim, meaning it only exists along with your claim. Once you extinguish your claim, his claim is also extinguished.

    There is not enough information to determine whether this is a fair settlement offer. If you are dealing directly with the insurance company you can be assured they are not providing you with a fair offer. For instance, if you did not have prior shoulder problems and you are full tort, then I do not think this is a offer. The evaluation of cases involves many factors. If you wish to call me, I will discuss your case in more detail with you and give you a fair assessment of the case. You can...

    Whether your brother had a license does not speak to whom was negligent in the accident. The law speaks to whom was negligent and thus the failure to have a valid driver's license is likely not admissible in a civil action. Following this logic, the officer would not be at fault for the accident either. You would have to prove the officer was "negligent" in the happening of the accident. I don't see how you will be able to do this. Finally, the officer was doing your brother a favor by...

    ABSOLUTELY DO NOT SIGN ANYTHING without first speaking to a personal injury lawyer. There are so many open questions about your case. If you sign the check and you have headaches that last for a long time you could be relinquishing your rights to a case. Maybe the headaches are stemming from your neck. Maybe you sustained a concussion or mild brain injury. You absolutely need to speak to a lawyer about your accident. If you end up hiring a lawyer after speaking to him or her, they will help you...
