    Anthony’s Answer

    I recommend that you consult with a reputable attorney to discuss your case, pending MRI, and what could be medical bills that will pile up very fast. It sounds as if the boat wasn't properly secured. If that is the case then you may have a valid claim against the company. Many clients try to handle these situations on their own and end up doing more harm than good. We often reject cases because a client, whose heart is in the right place, tries to go it alone and ends up damaging their case. My professional opinion is to speak with a lawyer sooner than later.

    You may terminate your lawyer at any time; however, it has only been 3 months since your accident. I would recommend you making a face to face appointment with your current lawyer to work out your situation as it should be easily manageable.

  • My child was a passenger in a fatal car accident. How do I find out if there are any add on's to the policy?

    My daughter was a minor. I have been offered a medical payment and a liability payment. I was told to find out about add on's to the policy. Do I ask for the declaration page? Or what exactly should I ask for? Thank you

    Anthony’s Answer

    I am very sorry to hear of your loss. My professional recommendation is that you speak with an attorney. There are different causes of action in GA when there is a wrongful death claim. There can be the wrongful death claim and the pain and suffering claim. In GA, surviving family members bring one claim and the Estate is the proper party to bring the other claim. The insurance company will want a release signed by the proper party from the family and the estate. Additionally, it is possible that probate court will review the settlement. For these reasons and many more I highly suggest you consult with an attorney.

  • Im looking for a good attorney to help me on a insurance claim!

    I was injured in an auto accident, back in april, totaled my truck and injured my right shoulder, gonna have to have major surgery to repair the damage, the insurance company dont seem to want to cooperate and pay for my injuries,

    Anthony’s Answer

    My recommendation is for you to consult with an attorney that specializes in personally injury cases and understands the complexity involved with shoulder injuries. The insurance company will only delay the process. I would not speak with the insurance company any more and let your lawyer speak to them on your behalf.

    Can I get compensated from vehicle that I was a passenger in ? He has underinsured insurance. I have over 32000 in medical bills

    Anthony’s Answer

    There are various avenues for which you can recover a possible settlement. There may be additional liability policies for the at fault car and driver as well as uninsured motorist coverage. My professional recommendation is to consult with an experienced attorney.

  • I was rear ended and hospitalized by a taxi cab while riding my bike.

    I was on my bicycle and stopped at a green light, signaling that I wanted to make a left turn. I was clearly visible and under 4 street lights when a taxi cab hit me from behind. He first admitted to seeing me and then when the police arrived he m...

    Anthony’s Answer

    In GA, taxi cab drivers are considered independent contractors and carry the state minimum insurance through Crown Captive Insurance Company. They are a very difficult insursance company and typically deny all claims. We successfully litigated against them numerous times and found ways to maximize recovery over and above the state minimum limits. Based on my past personal past experience with them I am in agreement with the other attorney comments that you will need to hire a personal imjury lawyer to help you with your case.

  • Do I need an personal injury accident attorney?

    My husband was hit head on by man who was charged with DUI (he was on prescription drugs that were his wife's ) we believe it totaled the car as well. My husband he suffering from severe head and neck aches now.

    Anthony’s Answer

    We are currently handling a similar case to your husband's case right now and have previously represented folks with this very same fact pattern. While no two cases are identical I can tell you that based on experience you and your husband are in need of an attorney. Often times insurance companies exclude certain types of coverage when a DUI/narcotics are involved. A good lawyer can assist you and your husband with your case. My recommendation is to contact an experienced law firm that will give you a free consultation and case evaluation.

  • My husband was hit on his motorcycle. Other driver was charged with improper lane change.

    Now my hubby is complaining of arm and leg pain and can't sleep at night from arm pain. Are we entitle to any damages?

    Anthony’s Answer

    You are entitled to Compensation for your accident. Please contact our firm or another AVVO rated firm to discuss your husband's accident. I would not recommend speaking with the insurance company of the at fault driver until you have spoken with an attorney.

  • Can we utilize uninsured/underinsured motorist?

    My fiancé received policy limits from the insured that hit him because of surgery scheduled for next week. I am primary and he is a secondary driver on my full coverage policy. Can we access my uninsured/underinsured motorist policy? If so is ther...

    Anthony’s Answer

    We would need further information to determine if you are able to have access to your underinsured motorist coverage. We would need to review your policy and evaluate your case. Additionally, it is very important that your fiancé not sign a full and complete release that would preclude any access to your own underinsured motorist policy. This is extremely important and I would suggest that your review this critical release with your current attorney prior to any signatures. If you are not comfortable with your current representation then I would suggest speaking to a qualified personal injury attorney that is well endorsed by lawyers and past clients on AVVO.
