  • I was rear ended by another driver, who was determined to be at fault. Can I make their insurance co. pay for new parrts?

    My Mercedes was rear ended and structural components of the rear bumper were damaged. Her insurance co wants to put a used rear bumper on my car. For safety reasons, I would like them to use a new bumper. How can I get them to do thiis?

    Sam’s Answer

    Yes, you can. You need to get the police report documenting the decatur, georgia area car accident & then send it to the at fault party's insurance company. You have the right to decide where to have your car fixed & the right to insist on the use of genuine parts. Best wishes.

  • I was hit by a car while on my motorcycle and I have lots of broken bones and am in the hospital how do I proceed

    The person who hit me is underage and they ran, the parent turned the kid in, the parents have insurance

    Sam’s Answer

    Hello, I am sorry that this motorcycle accident happened to you. Sort of feel like you were kicked while you were down when the at fault party bolted from the accident scene, don't you? Not a good feeling. The amount & extent of liability insurance now has to be determined along with the extent & required treatment for your respective injuries. It's like putting a puzzle together. Over time, the end result will be clear & that'll guide your tactical & medical treatment strategy. It's important to lawyer up as soon as puzzle as the insurance company vultures will start circling soon. Best wishes for a speedy recovery & that you become as whole as possible. Take care.

  • What can I do about a tax lien on my credit report?

    I have a tax lien on my credit report due to my mortgage company not paying the county taxes. I have gone to the courthouse and printed off everything saying that the bill was paid in full. What do I need to do to correct this on my report?

    Sam’s Answer

    You need to, as the other esteemed attorneys may or may not have mentioned, send the reporting credit bureaus the print out showing the tax lien paid in full & ask for a quick update. At most, it should take no more than thirty (30) days for your credit report to be updated to show & reflect paid in full or zero balance. Best wishes for a healthy credit report.

  • I was in a car accident And not at fault. Offer is $6500, $4092 for medical and $2500 for pain & suffering, is this sufficient?

    I was at a full stop, the at fault driver pulled out and hit a truck, and the truck hit me. Hand and leg bruised

    Sam’s Answer

    It depends. On its face & in the absence of an attorney getting 1/3 of your total settlement, the amount of the settlement offer would appear to be enough to settle your Auburn, Georgia soft tissue car accident injury claim. As long as your medical bills are covered & you walk away with some money for pain & suffering, then that's all you can ask for assuming the injuries are not more serious than what you represented in your question in which case you'd need more money to cover future pain & suffering & medical bills. Best wishes.

  • I need a phone bill removed from my credit report.

    I have a cell phone bill on my credit report and without the company sending me a final bill. This was sent to a collection agency and they claimed to send me one notice as well. How can I get this removed from my credit report and allow me time...

    • Selected as best answer

    I am sorry that you are having to deal with this. I am of the opinion that the credit reporting laws are not completely black & white & that often times there are extenuating circumstances that in some cases support an adjustment or removal of adverse information off of someone's credit report. I am a big proponent of consumers trying to resolve problems on their own w/o hiring & paying an attorney. That said, if you hit a brick wall, I'd be happy to speak with you about your options, etc. Best wishes.

  • Who's homeowner's insurance should pay if my neighbor was cutting their grass and a bolt shot threw our window?

    My neighbor's daughter's boyfriend was cutting their grass and a bolt flew out from underneath the mower and into our window. I was wondering whos homeowner's should be responsible

    Sam’s Answer

    Sorry that this happened to you, but of course it's a mistake, which all humans make. I am sure your neighbor feels bad. That said, you'd probably would want to go through or make a claim with your neighbor's insurance company. I'd expect your neighbor to be cooperative in providing your their homeowner's insurance information. The only alternative, which I do not recommend unless absolutely necessary is that you'd go through (make a claim /w) your own insurance company and they would send subrogate & seek reimbursement from your neighbor's insurance company. Best wishes in getting the matter resolved & take care.

  • Can I remove a judgement that was satisfied before the court date and shows up on my credit report.

    From 2010 to 2014, I lived in an apartment complex. In 2011, I missed a rent payment and was served a 5 day eviction notice and a summons for court. Before the court date, I made my rent payment and all associated late/filing fees were also paid. ...

    Sam’s Answer

    The best advice I can give you is to schedule a time with an attorney who practices in this area for a Q & A & to go over your credit report. Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, those items that are reported correctly must remain on the credit report for a set period of time. However, there are sometimes extenuating circumstances to be taken into consideration. CreditInfoCenter.com is another resource.

    Best Wishes,
