    I agree with Mr. Aitken. Now if you don't have insurance, you should consult with an attorney. I assume you want to know if this is "your fault" and what could happen. Can't give a good opinion with the facts you gave. An attorney would have to review all the facts, including the allegations made by your neighbor. But if you have insurance turn it into them so you don't have to pay a lawyer

    If you were charged with "reckless endangerment", this is more than a mere traffic violation. This is a criminal charge and if it happened in Delaware County, you are going to have to go to a preliminary hearing in front of a local district justice and then, if the charges are held over you are going to have to go to Media before a judge. I suggest you talk to a local criminal attorney, and by that I mean somebody that handles a lot of cases in Media

    It's hard to give an opinion without knowing the facts. The lawyers you spoke to may think the case is too small to take OR they may think that you don't even have a case (because you can't prove that somebody else's at fault for your fall). Assuming you do have a case, I would tell the claims adjuster that you want to gather your medical bills and reports and that you will submit them to him/her. You'll actually have to get records of your treatment from the Dr. and/or hospital. When you...

    I feel bad for you. This is a question I get a few times a year. I can only give you general information. I've been handling this type of case in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and the surrounding counties for over 30 years. Unfortunately, in Pennsylvania, there is nothing you could do. I am assuming you signed a release, in order to get your money, and that release is going to bar you from making any additional claims. Usually, releases have specific language in them, which even goes so far...

  5. In a personal injury auto lawsuit do I recover all medical bills regardless of a persons coverage

    No. The first source of recovery for medical bills is your auto insurance, or the auto insurance of a resident relative. If this doesn't apply, then the insurance on the car that you were in. The second source of recovery for medical bills is your health insurance. The third source of recovery for your medical bills is to obtain payment for these and your pain and suffering from the insurance carrier for the car that caused the accident. It is possible that even if you have all these...

    I assume by your question, that you are really asking how much you can get. No one can legitimately answer that question yet. There are a lot of issues which must be considered. First of all, you said that the police "crashed into my car." The lawyer would need the specific facts of the case in order to determine who was responsible for the accident. Second, it seems like your accident just happen. Before anybody could put a value in on your case they would have to see how well you...

    There is no way to give an accurate answer to the question without all the facts, both about the accident and your injuries. The short answer is it could easily take a year. For instance what if the other driver says YOU ran the stop sign or does not agree that he/she is at fault. In order to move your case forward you would have to file a formal lawsuit and that could delay the case. What if you think your case is worth $100,000 and the insurance company for the other driver thinks it is worth...

    Normally where you have a stop sign and the other car doesn't, the accident is your fault. However, if this large van was illegally parked then I would claim it was his responsibility. Did you get the information on the Van? Also, you said there was construction and possibly an argument could be made that the company doing the construction was also responsible for the accident. Tough to tell without more facts.

    Generally speaking, I would think you have to answer these questions.(If you are the plaintiff). Interrogatories are part of the discovery process, and the defendant is usually entitled to get this type of information because it may lead to other things that are relevant to the defense of their case. As my colleagues say, you should discuss this with your attorney. If you do not provide this information, I assume the defense attorney will file a motion and asked the court to compel you to...

    I agree with my colleagues. I have an additional comment. You asked two questions. Are you at fault for the accident? Can you be charged with the accident? If by charged you are talking about criminal charges, that would be in the discretion of the police and/or the local District Attorney's Office. If you get a feeling that there's a criminal investigation I would retain a criminal attorney and let him advise you. Also, assuming you have auto insurance make sure you notify your...
