    Jeffrey’s Answer

    I agree with the attorney below. Life insurance is a contract. I don't see what living together has to do with your ability to be a beneficiary.

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    I'm a good personal injury lawyer :). I'm sure everyone on here would say they are. Seriously though, you need to speak with someone as soon as possible to give you guidance. I would not recommend just putting a message like that on a site like this. Ask around, and find out who has done well for your family, friends. Look on here at the ratings and evaluations other say about the lawyers. Good luck.

  • Just got a ticket for careless driving with accident . If I prove that it was not my fault will I still be liable for anything

    Can prove that I was in the right in court.

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    The ticket will have no influence on whether you are held responsible in civil court or in the claims process. Tickets are inadmissible in a Civil Court for damages related to a car accident. Police reports are "hearsay," that is why they cannot be used. Make sure you have reported your claim to your own insurance company, and they will defend you from any claims stemming from your accident.

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    I handle DV claims. The car has to be repaired first and then evaluated for diminution of value. Diminution of value is specifically to cover the loss in value of your car from significant property damage. These cases are handled on a contingency fee basis.

  • If my wife covers her son under and insurance policy with his and her name, can she be liable if is in an accident?

    Wife wants to open an insurance policy for her son, not my policy! a separate policy for him.. with her name on it as well as his.. Can she be held liable if he is in an accident?? what about me?? since her name and mine are tied, would I be ...

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    I will assume you are talking about auto insurance. It really depends upon who is on the title for the vehicle. If you and your wife are on the title of the vehicle, and her son is in an accident, then yes, you can be held liability under the dangerous instrumentality doctrine. Whoever is on the title can be held responsible under this doctrine, even if they are not driving the car at the time of the accident. If you are concerned about being held liable, make sure he is not driving any vehicles that you are the registered owner of. I hope this information helps you.
