  • My attorney settle my case without my permission. so I terminated his service, will I have to pay him if I don't accept anything

    an attorney settle my case without my permission, and the insurance company is not going to pay unless I sign a release form

    Christopher’s Answer

    That's a mess. So the law says the lawyer can bind you to the settlement with the insurer regardless of permission. Offer will never go up. Your fight is with the lawyer. if the lawyer won't reduce fees to the point that works for you, contact the state bar of georgia fee dispute division.

    They owe you a rental for the period of time it takes to fix the car. You sure you didn't get the rental through your own insurer, then it is limited by contract?

    Christopher’s Answer

    If you gave your daughter permission to drive and she gave permission to the boyfriend to drive, then he is a permissive user and is insured under the policy. Tell the insurance company the truth. If she had injuries in the crash, and it was his fault, she would have a claim against him.

    It sounds like you may have been hurt around a horse? Have an in Person free consultation with the lawyer. Be aware that if you were involved in horse riding, there maybe an equestrian immunity issue. Regardless, take advantage of the free consultation and examine what the possibilities are.

  • Does a lawyer have a duty to report the client health insurance about the car accident?

    Does a lawyer have a duty to report the client health insurance about the car accident?

    Christopher’s Answer

    I think you are asking if the health insurance paid some of a car accident bills whether the lawyer has to communicate with the insurer about what they are claiming in reimbursement rights. It depends on the nature of the health insurance plan and the strength of those rights. Since a lawyer can be sued for not protecting properly asserted reimbursement rights, the lawyer can override your wishes to avoid reimbursement. So, no duty, but the lawyer has the right to do it to protect you and himself.

  • Do I have a personal injury case?

    My grandson was injuried in the school bathroom by another student. He had back,shoulder and arm pain.

    Christopher’s Answer

    The school will be immune from suit but he can file a claim against the child through the parents home insurance policy up to a statutory limit. Only worthwhile if the injury is substantial. Make sure he school knows if the incident so the student can be disciplined.
