  • 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.

    Best advice I can give you is to consider the advice of myself & others (attorney's on this website) & try to correct the problem on your own without hiring an attorney. IF you hit a brick wall, my advice is to hire an attorney to assist you in clearing up the matter & getting it removed from your credit report. Best Wishes.

  • 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.

    If you feel that you have reached a dead end in your own efforts to recover the money, you'll want to hire an attorney to advocate for you for a fair & reasonable price, given that the amount sought is $3,500.

    Hello, I am so sorry that this happened to your child. Do you know what the prognosis is? If so, responding in private to myself or another attorney would be a good idea. Without knowing more, it would be hard to fully answer your question. I hope things turn out ok. Best wishes.

  • Should one send the medical bills to the insurance during the treatment?

    One is injured in the rear end car accident and receiving the treatment. He has received the medical statements. Should he begin to send the bills to the at fault car insurance and demand the insurance to pay the hospital and doctors or he should ...

    Sam’s Answer

    First of all, sorry that you were rear ended. I hope you are ok. With respect to your question, It depends. On one hand, if you have no insurance, the danger/risk of the bills not being paid could result in collection efforts & adverse info being placed on your credit report - not good. On the other, the downside of the insurance company paying the bills as you receive them will remove any opportunity that you or your lawyers has to try to negotiate them down-thus putting more $ in your pocket. Many medical creditors will wait for a reasonable amount of time before beginning collection efforts to give the case an oppty to settle in order fore them to be paid. Generally, you should wait till you reach MMI or maximum medical improvement before you send the medical records/bills to the insurance company. Just make sure that you communicate with your medical creditors. Best wishes.

  • My daughter was in an accident in acworth ga , she was making a left turn and the guy was trying the whole time to pass her

    on a two lane road. No ticket was given to either party and officer said he couldn't determine who was at fault but the diagram is showing different

    Sam’s Answer

    Assuming both of you were going in the same direction & I think you were. The person trying to pass you is most likely at fault. That's one of the dangers posed on the roads when someone tries to pass under those or similar circumstances.

    You need to tell your story about your daughter's car accident in Acworth, GA to a licensed & experienced attorney whom you & your daughter are comfortable with. I hope that this incident will cause minimal distraction in your daughter's life. Best wishes.

  • I'm trying to figure out what steps I should take if I was involved in an hit an run accident that was not my fault?

    I don't want the expenses to be on me. And I need to be seen by a chiropractor because I am in pain.

    Sam’s Answer

    You need to speak with an attorney about your hit and run car accident. You have rights that you may not be aware of. Find an attorney who will get you centered, encourage you to take a deep breath and when then step by step advocate zealously for your rights in a concerted effort to recover ALL of your damages. Your attorney should also be empathetic to your pain and your predicament.
    Best wishes.

  • I went to the emergency room on June 5, 2013 and they said I had gallstones. I still have them and the pain is getting worse.

    The only way to get rid of my gallstones is to have my gallbladder removed. I have no money and no insurance. I will be 62 years old on December 16, 2013. I need to have my gallbladder removed asap. Can you help?

    Sam’s Answer

    You need to try to negotiate down the price of the surgery immediately in writing. Then ask your doctor if you need emergency gallbladder removal surgery & if you do, then go to er to & explain to them in person that you need emergency gall bladder removal surgery. They cannot by law turn you away. The next option is to try to set up a pre-surgical payment plan & lastly, try to obtain health insurance that covers pre-existing conditions. I hope this helps my friend.
