    Let your insurance company handle it....thats' why you have coverage, If the claim is truly groundless then your carrier will pay very little money. It is therefore not required that you hire your own attorney to defend the action. The cost of defense is included in the insurance premiums that you pay. Good Luck. Evan in FLA 866-I-SUE-YOU

    Well you seem to already have some of the answers. Your license will probably stay suspended until you come to some sort of settlement with the injured party. Your insurance company does not have to cover the injured person's damages since you did not have the liability portion of coverage. So long as you do not drive with a suspended license you cannot go to jail for the accident, unless of course you were also charged with a criminal infraction, e.g. D.U.I., etc. Next time you should PAY for...

    Unless you know where the tire came from there will be no third party case. If you took out the supplemental insurance from the rental car company then that policy should cover any damages. If not, you can either pay the rental care company out-of-pocket, or report it to your own auto insurance carrier. Good Luck! Evan in FLA (866) I SUE-YOU (478-3968)

    It depends but basically you would have to settle BOTH at the same time. Insurance companies will not settle one matter while leaving the other one open.Thats just bad business. If you need representation, feel free to give me a call. We handle cases statewide. Good Luck! (866) I SUE YOU (478-3968). www.attorneys4life.com. Evan

    Your case sounds quite complicated to simply answer here. If they did not offer you enough money, you should possibly proceed to trial. Although your damages are quite extensive, liability on the store may not be that great. As a result, their settlement offer may be considered low by you. Best to talk to your current attorney about the advantage and disadvantages about proceeding to trial. Nevertheless, my firm handles such cases in the FTL area...Do note that if you do plan to switch lawyers...

    Yes so long as you are not also receiving SSI benefits. If you are also collecting SSI, the amounts received could cause a potential loss of those benefits. Good Luck! Evan in FLA (866) I SUE YOU (478-3968)

    You could of course try but SSI eligibility is based on assets. Simply put, regardless as to whether or not you can work, if you have assets, e.g. a bank account, you may not qualify for SSI benefits.

  9. EEOC.Dismissed claim.

    Your employer was already notified of the complaint. Typically the EEOC does not have the resources to really investigate most charges. The fact that they did not find cause does not mean however that you have no case. You should therefore contact an attorney immediately and before the 90 day time limit to sue expires. Good Luck!

    Generally speaking Employers are wise to give very little information about a past employee so that are not likely to be sued. Typically they give job title, dates of employment and rate of pay. If they however assert things that are not true, you can prove that and it hinders your ability to find employment an action may lie against them for slander and or defamation. Best of Luck!
