    This is a common question from clients. The answer though depends on a lot of things. First, how quickly do you recover? What insurance company is on the other side? What are you claiming as damages? How much insurance does the other driver have? You need to talk to your attorney. He is in the better position to help you answer this question. Good luck.

    You do not have to hire a lawyer, however, I would strongly urge you to do so. The ins co adjuster has been trained how to minimize your claim. You need someone to fight for you to get you what you deserve. Also, there may be compensation your are entitled to that the ins co will not tell you about. Do not give any statements to the other side's insurance company. Get a lawyer and protect yourself.

    Maybe. It may depend on what the release that you signed says. You should have gotten an attorney for the claim against your mother in law's estate. If you have not done so already, you will need one to deal with the truck driver.

  4. Adultery 7 years ago

    If the non cheating spouse learned of the adultery and took the cheating spouse back, the non cheating spouse will not be able to use the prior adultery as grounds for divorce. The non cheating spouse will be deemed to have condoned the adultery.

  5. We are being harassed by a law firm trying to collect a debt owed by an elderly family member. Not liable. Do we have recourse?

    Your situation is unclear. Has the law firm filed suit against you or your elderly family member? If so, then they can subpoena information from you or anyone else regarding the debt. If a debt collector is contacting you, and that includes a law firm, and the collector says you owe the money, then you have the right to request a validation of the debt. Failure to do so is a violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. You may be right that the law firm wants information from you...

  6. Can a will written in VA be executed in SC without going through probate?

    Your question is confusing. Executing a document generally means signing it. It sounds, though, like the person already signed a will in VA, has died, and you want to know if the property can be divided without going through probate. Maybe your question can be answered this way. If a person executes a will in another State and then moves to SC, the will will be considered valid if it would have been valid in the State where the person came from. If a person dies with a will, the will...

    I agree. Your husband may have two claims. Usually, you have to resolve the workers comp claim first since the workers comp folks may have a lien on the proceeds. Call a lawyer tomorrow so he can follow up on the negligence of the property owner. He should also handle the workers comp claim. There are a lot of pitfalls you need to be aware of. Good luck.

    No, all cases do not settle. Even if they did, that does not mean your pain is going away. Make sure you have a good lawyer working to maximize your claim, especially if you expect it to be life long. Good luck.

    First, you need to notify your insurance company about the letter. They will have someone contact the law firm. Whether you get sued may depend on why she was driving, what instructions you left her and what access you gave her to the keys. At this point, though, notifying your insurance company is the first step. The issue may get resolved long before a suit, so don't worry too much about that now. Good luck.

    I am not sure what you are asking, however, you can only put a mechanics lien on real property if you file a lis pendens with the clerk of court within 90 days of the last work on the property. You then have to file suit within 180 days of the last work on the property. You may have had a contract with your relative. You would then have a 3 year statute of limitations. If you did the work 8 years ago and did not file suit within 3 years, you probably do not have any legal rights to pursue...
