    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.

    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.

  • Insurance offered to cover 70%

    What's my next move? Traveling in traffic on I-285 (6 lanes) in second lane from right 30-35mph with about 35-40 feet of space distance between my rruck and car in front of me. Car in third lane decides to switch a lane right in front of me at ...

    James’s Answer

    Probably not. The offer is likely contingent on you signing a release saying that you will not sue. If you don't like the offer and feel that you can prove the other driver was 100% at fault, you could reject the offer and seek 100% in small claims court. However, if there is some argument that you are partially to blame, you may still not get 100% and could get less than the 70% being offered. That's the risk you have to weigh.

  • I had fallen over an unsafe sidewalk in Baltimore. This unsafe sidewalk has been reported to the city-no results.

    I have filed complaints in writing and calling 311 with no repairs done. I have pictures and documentation to support this situation. I need to know what else Io do to get this diewalk repaired.

    James’s Answer

    If you fell and sustained injury, you need to contact an attorney quickly. Suits against municipalities and counties have specific notice requirements that you must comply with or be forever barred from taking legal action. If you weren't injured and are merely looking to remedy the problem, you may want to contact your local media outlet since your prior complaints have gone unheeded.

  • I injured my ankle in the driveway of an apartment that my girlfriend was renting in 2013 I just had surgery do to that injury

    Owner sold the house but there are medical records of the injury can I sue this person

    James’s Answer

    Your post does not mention any negligence on the part of the property owner. If there was something about the condition of the property that caused the fall, there may be a case. These types of cases are fact specific, so contact a lawyer ASAP to review the particulars. The sale of the house is immaterial.

  • Question regarding Personal Injury Settlement

    I had an injury about 2 years ago in a car accident and statute of limitations runs in about a week. The insurance company does not dispute the liability at this time. My medicals are around 8k, including chiropractic, MRI and ortho examination. T...

    James’s Answer

    You need to immediately speak to a lawyer about your case. There are so many factors that go into whether a settlement is fair, and no one can answer if the offer you received is fair without reviewing all pertinent documents. The fact you waited until a week before the SOL runs may make it difficult to find a lawyer, so the sooner you do so, the better. Keep in mind that the insurance company will withdraw its offer if you have not accepted it or filed suit before the SOL runs, so don't delay in your decision.
