  • How much can I expect to receive for bodily injury. A policy holder ran a red light admitting she was on her cellphone .

    Total my car ... head bump with soft tissue neck sprain

    James’s Answer

    No experienced attorney can give you a fair estimate based on this information alone. There are far too many variables. Do yourself a favor and contact an attorney specializing in motor vehicle wreck cases who can properly advise you. In the long run, your recovery will be substantially more than if you try and handle it yourself.

    it would be to your detriment to try and negotiate this case without a lawyer. It's not uncommon for an insurance adjuster to not call you back. When they do, they will low-ball you. Do yourself a favor and find an attorney to handle this for you. You are 99.99% likely to recover more with one than without one.

    Auto accident, other driver at fault, states so in traffic accident report , insurance company only offering 85% of car value and 85% of rental car costs and refuse to pay rental car collision insurance.

    James’s Answer

    It has become routine for insurance companies to arbitrarily assign blame to the victim even in clear liability cases like the one you've described. Your best bet is to contact an attorney to protect your rights as the insurance company will not treat you fairly without one.

    You should speak to an attorney immediately to give you specific advice and explore the options. Waiting until after a judgment has been entered seems like a bad decision.

  • My daughter in kindergarden got hurt in classroom with cut by eye. Nurse called and tols us about it and said she didnt think it

    needed stiches. been like 9 months and now there is a pretty good scar which looks like will be a permanent mark. Its in nys is it worth it to get a lawyer or not.

    James’s Answer

    The biggest issue a lawyer will investigate is what was the possible negligence involved? It's unclear who caused the injury and whether it was the result of negligent supervision or some other negligent act. In addition, there may be immunity issues in play. Failure to follow the requirements for giving proper ante litem notice, if required, could bar the claim entirely. You need to immediately consult a lawyer to advise you of your rights and ensure you do not miss an important deadline, otherwise the claim can be permanently time-barred.

  • I was rear ended and I wasn't at fault, the guy who caused the accident accepted responsibility for it.

    I was wondering if there's a way for me to find legal assistance even though I cannot afford an attorney. The accident left significant damage to my vehicle, thus it was totalled as a result.

    James’s Answer

    This sounds like a serious wreck. You should certainly consult an attorney immediately to protect your rights and ensure you are fairly compensated. You can use the "Find a Lawyer" feature at the top. Most attorneys will offer a free consult and do not charge an "up front" fee. Instead, most attorneys work on a "contingency" arrangement where you pay a percentage of the total recovery.
