    If injuries are involved, YES! I would not rely on an insurance carrier to treat you fairly!

    Herbert’s Answer

    There is not enough facts to do that. An attorney would have to sit down with your son and a copy of the file and from there come up with a rough estimate of potential value. Of course, ever insurance carrier evaluates a given case on a different basis. We never know what a jury will do. Especially when the defendant is the client's father!

  • My son was a passenger in a car and they had an accident. Shouldn't the driver me held liable?

    I have health insurance through my job which paid a portion of the bill but now they are coming after me for the balance.

    Herbert’s Answer

    It depends. If a one car accident, then most likely the driver wil be held accountable. If more than one vehicle was involved, there is chance that one of the other drivers may have been charged with fault. If so, your son still has a claim for medical payments through the ins for the car he was in.

  • Can i get paid for gitting hit in back riding on the city bus the other driver was at falt not the bus driver

    The bus was at a complete stop when the driver ran into the bus.

    Herbert’s Answer

    if you were injured and received medical treatment you have a claim against the other driver's auto ins carrier. The offer will depend on a lot of factors: how hard was the impact; do the bus cameras show your movement when the crash happened, what treatment did you receive.

    Herbert’s Answer

    You really did not ask a question. What you need is to sit down with a local attorney to go over your case. There are a lot of unknowns from the information that you provided.

    Herbert’s Answer

    once you send all the medical bills and records to the carrier, you should hear back within 4 weeks. That is the time frame that we give them until we start to hound them

    Herbert’s Answer

    The majority of our claims settle with the insurance carrier without the filing of a lawsuit. The claim is filed with the insurance carrier, not your friend.

    Herbert’s Answer

    No. But even if the SOL had not expired, you would have to show that you were injured. Since you have had trouble with the shoulder, you would have a hard time proving damages.
