  • Wrongful death Claim

    from mother was killed in a car accident. if i've already received compensation through the uninsured motorist policies that my mother had through her insurance can I still file for wrongful death Claim.

    Jason’s Answer

    That is a confusing question. If you already received compensation from the UM carrier, that implies there is no other insurance to pursue.

    As I indicated in response to your other question, you really need to consult with an attorney so they can sort out exactly what you have done or will be able to do.

  • Questions about uninsured motorist policies

    my mother was killed in a car accident. She had uninsured motorist policies. She has different automobile policies through different insurance companies. they are nonstacked policies. Can I make a claim through the other insurance companies if she...

    Jason’s Answer

    My condolences for your loss. The answer to your question really depends on many things, including the different insurance policies you mention.

    The first thing you need to do is hire a lawyer or firm experienced in handling wrongful death cases and who will be able to sort out the issues regarding the insurance policies. Many people try to handle claims themselves and ultimately wind up regretting the decision. Even if your goal is to avoid paying attorneys' fees, you are likely to still make a better net recovery (even after payment of attorneys' fees) if you retain a qualified, aggressive attorney who is experienced in handling this type of case.

    I worked for 6 months, only late one time and my boss stated all the positive work ethics I had but needed someone more like his office manager that was married and had no kids.

    Jason’s Answer

    Yes; if what you say is accurate and that was the reason for your termination, then (provided your employer is large enough to be subject to the employment laws of Florida, you likely have a case.

    Jason’s Answer

    It sounds as though your employer may be violating some laws in a number of ways.

    I would suggest that you and any other co-workers who are unhappy about not being paid for time you have worked go speak with an employment lawyer.

    Jason’s Answer

    Your question raises a multitude of issues which are too variable to even attempt to accurately answer in this forum. There is a very good chance you should be considered an employee. If so, you may very well be entitled to WC or other benefits.

    In either event, if you were not at fault in the accident, you have what sounds to be a strong case against the truck that hit you and its operator(s).

    You need to speak to a qualified, experienced and aggressive attorney as soon as possible to ensure that you protect your rights and do not become a victim or be harmed a second time.

    Coverage for me. I had minimal insurance and uninsured motorist. Should I sue him personally ? Isn't he suppose to carry pip on the other person ?

    Jason’s Answer

    No. The other driver is not required to carry any insurance which benefits you in personal injury situation. Fortunately, you have PIP and UM. You need to speak with an attorney immediately.

  • What rights do illegal aliens have to make personal injury claims.

    Jason’s Answer

    Your friend's status as an illegal alien does not impair his ability to assert a claim for injuries suffered by the wrongs of another person. If your friend has serious injuries, it is important that he speak with a qualified and aggressive attorney who is experienced in handling trucking cases as soon as possible. Your friend's ability to protect his rights, and potentially those of his family, depends upon his selection of appropriate counsel.

    Jason’s Answer

    If you were injured as a result of the collision, your wife would also have what is called a loss of consortium claim in which she would be able to recover for her own damages relating to the impact of the injuries and damages you suffered on your marriage.

    If she were to develop physical manifestations of her emotional injuries arising from seeing you injured, she MAY also have a separate claim.

    If you were injured as a result of thiis incident, you should immediately consult with an experienced motorcycle accident attorney who will be able to represent you.
