    Bruce’s Answer

    You should contact an attorney that handles HIPPA violations to see if there is anything that can be done. As another posted commented, not sure if the damages are there to warrant any sort of claim but you may never know exactly what type of info this person may have gained access to!

    Bruce’s Answer

    I agree there is a very short municipal statute on a situation like this. There may be a HIPPA violation here, you need to seek out advice from an attorney specializing in civil rights and/or defamation issues that may help you file a Health Information Privacy or Security Complaint. Good luck!

    Bruce’s Answer

    If you have been seriously injured and are now unable to work, this could be a life changing accident and you need good advice on how to pursue. You will definitely need an attorney to help you with this matter. Most personal injury and accident attorneys do not charge a fee for a consultation and many will not charge you a fee if there is no money recovered. There are many great attorneys on AVVO, choose someone in your state or area that you could meet with in person.

  • I signed an insurance release form to my attorney but will only get $5,000 from it. Does that sound right?

    I got in a car accident last year, and came out injured. Therefore I hired an attorney which assigned a doctor for therapy and helped me get reimbursed for property damage. Now my case is finally coming to a settlement of $15,000. My attorney say...

    Bruce’s Answer

    Assuming you will still ask the attorney to see a disbursement statement, I would say this appears to work out correctly. You may need to look back at the fee agreement you originally signed upon retaining representation to see what percentage his services are for pre-litigation claim work.

    Bruce’s Answer

    This may be a situation that you will have to address in Magistrate court in the county in which the store is located. You can always have your insurance company repair the car and then let them handle any issues with getting reimbursed from the store/store owners.

    Bruce’s Answer

    Contact your insurer immediately so you do not have to wait any longer without a car. Just because you have a deductible does not mean that you will necessarily have to pay it out of pocket to get the ball rolling on the matter. Make sure to ask if you have rental car coverage just so that you can get a car immediately if the other drivers insurance continues to give you the run around.

    IF you are injured or in pain, get medical treatment and make sure to call a PI attorney.

  • I was in an accident last week in GA. No injuries to either occupant in both vehicles. Exchanged information since no injuries.

    However, my vehicle was towed from my residence. Towing company say it's a police hold on it, for a possible hit and run/fleeing scene of accident. What can I do?

    Bruce’s Answer

    Contacting the tow yard and asking which police department has a hold is a good, first step. Then call the police. You arent helping yourself if you are sitting around waiting to be contacted.

    My daughter was playing at school during recess. She slipped on a plastic pvc piping that is on the playground which surrounds the swings. She broke her wrist, bust her bottom lip and loosened her two front permanent teeth. The teachers on the pla...

    Bruce’s Answer

    If this is NOT a private school the issue of sovereign immunity, the protection under the law that prohibits an agent or agency of the government from being sued without their consent, arises and proper notice must be given to that entity. It is recommended that you speak with a Georgia Personal Injury attorney to help answer more detailed questions concerning this potentially difficult situation.

    Bruce’s Answer

    You can easily send a written letter of termination to notify the attorney you no longer wish for him to represent you concerning this matter. Since it is unlikely he has received an offer on the case you should not owe a fee but may be charged expense fees; postage, medical requests, etc.
