Absolutely, but the insurance company is only required to pay up to their limits of available coverage. So even if you get a large verdict, well above the insurance limits, it will be hard to collect unless the defendant has substantial assets to cover the judgment. Oftentimes, a defendant can file bankruptcy if facing a large judgment. Good luck!
Thanks for your question. I hope you and your kids are ok. You should contact a criminal defense attorney first to find out what is going on with your license. Also, contact your insurance company immediately to notify them of the wreck. If there are no injuries, it is unlikely you will need to retain a personal injury lawyer. Good luck!
You do not have to fill out the insurance paperwork, and I would recommend you do not until you have had a chance to talk with a lawyer. Insurance adjusters will often try to subtly steer you away from consulting with a lawyer because they want to settle the case for less than the the case is worth.
I'm sorry to hear about your fall. You did not explain why you fell. Was something wrong with the ladder? Did someone hit the ladder while you were on it? If this happened on the job, regardless of fault, you likely have a good basis for a workers comp claim, and you should talk with a workers compensation lawyer. You should definitely talk with a lawyer, either a workers comp attorney or a personal injury lawyer to explore possible liability and to work with your doctors to help get you on...
First of all, I am very glad to hear your 17 year old was not hurt worse. I agree with the other comments. You should press a claim for personal injuries and punitive damages. You will likely get the runaround by the adjusters until you are represented. Good luck!
Your question does not make clear what the $45,000 demand is for. You need to speak with a your insurance defense lawyer to explore details. Is the 45k for a judgment? Excess judgment beyond your policy limits. In that case, you may need to engage separate counsel.
From your question, it does not sound like you were hurt. You definitely need to notify your insurance carrier if you have not done so. Since you have counsel, I suspect you have done as much. Unfortunately, since the claim does not appear to be substantial enough for litigation, you will have a hard time finding a lawyer to file suit. Better work with your carrier, get the claim paid and let them chase after the at fault driver. Good luck!
If you have the green light, you have the right of way, but you still must keep a proper lookout to avoid a collision. Also, if a vehicle "controls" the intersection - got there first - you still have to yield.
I am sorry to hear you were hurt. There may be liability on the part of whomever placed the sand and did not clean it up. If it was a government entity (DOT, EMT's) they may have immunity from suit except in limited circumstances. I would recommend you talk with a personal injury lawyer. Good luck!
There is no right to serve in the military, and if it is determined that you did, in fact, commit fraud to obtain an enlistment, you can be chaptered out of the military. That being said, without more than a few defamatory statements from some of your former friends that they smoked pot with you prior to your enlistment, it is highly unlikely that such statements would support an administrative separation.
