    First of all, if you don't have a lawyer, get one and do NOT talk to the insurer. Typically people who do not get attorneys see settlements averaging 70% lower than people who get attorneys. Not getting an MRI when recommended is foolish. First of all you may be risking harm to yourself medically. And you will lower the value of your case - the insurer will figure you didn't get it because you feel fine. And when you do get it after settlement, you're out of luck - it won't be paid...

    Let me rephrase your question. "I have a toothache, and I can't afford a dentist. If I get some pliers and pull it, will I be okay, heal, and not have pain or an infection?" Maybe, maybe not. The same is the answer on a homemade will. Maybe it works. Maybe it sort of works, and causes your son to spend extra money on probate. Or maybe it's no good at all. Doing a will with a real lawyer isn't that expensive, and you will also get other planning you may need at the same time (such...

    Your attorney will be best equipped to tell you so you should call him as he will have experience with your adjuster (hopefully you didn't foolishly do this without a lawyer, as claimants without lawyers average settlements that are 70% lower than ones who used a lawyer. If you did that, there's no one who will know the answer).

    As you may be aware, the two worst major insurers in the U.S. are Allstate and State Farm. The good hands and good neighbors stuff in their ads is baloney. They don't tend to treat claimants fairly compared with their better competition. Your attorney is the only one who can answer your question. In many cases, when you reject an offer there won't be another one (or any new one will be close to the old one), and you're gambling that you may do better at trial (your lawyer can assess if...

    The answer depends completely on the exact wording of the will (and perhaps on what was not put in it). Well-written wills contain the answer, and the answer can either be yes or no. Showing the whole will to a lawyer will get you a quick answer. This is an issue that can generate court battles. To read one that reached the Georgia Supreme Court less than a year ago look at Stewart v Ray http://www.gasupreme.us/sc-op/pdf/s11a0777.pdf Make sure that a lawyer assists in this probate...

    You haven't said what the monentary payments are. Some judgments are not dischargeable in bankruptcy (such as damages from a DUI, child support, fraud, alimony, many taxes and student loans). Others are. As a general rule, it is far better to file before than after a judgment. Once there is a judgment, the prevailing party could promptly do granishments, etc against you, and also that judgment becomes a lien on your property, which increases the cost (in some cases) of bankruptcy....

    No! Powers of attorney and wills are opposite. A designation of an executor under a will takes effect only AFTER death AND only AFTER a court approves the probate filing. The title means nothing now. A power of attorney is a separate document which only covers what is in the document and can only be effective before a person dies. You need to have a family meeting to determine if there IS a separate power of attorney, and if not, why family members are acting illegally.

    If you never paid the damages and the insurer or other party makes aproper claim, your license will be suspended for life. Your options are pretty simple: (1) you can work out a deal with State Farm if you and they can reach an agreement, or (2) you can see a bankruptcy lawyer. (On occasion you may have option 3 - a fight about the accident and any judgment, but ten years later that may be expensive and futile). If you are eligible for a bankruptcy discharge, you may wipe out the debt and...

    Most online wills are less than optimal at best, and garbage at worst. Unless you want to hurt your family, do NOT even think of doing this online. Few things cost less with a lawyer than a will, and few things are more expensive to fix when done pro se. The decisions that need to be made require a specific interview - without knowing your finances, family situation, insurance, retirement, assets, debts and wishes, there is no way to tell you what to focus on. And in some cases, other...

    DON'T CASH THE CHECK AND STOP TALKING TO THE INSURER! It is very likely that they are trying to cheat you and cauyse you to release future claims. You should already have hired a lawyer, and need one now. That is the only way to get a proper settlement. You will get ripped off badly by dealing direct with the insurer.
