    Jose’s Answer

    I definitely think you should seek legal counsel for this matter. Serious head injuries can sometimes be hard to identify until it is too late. Retaining an attorney now can help you protecting your daughter's rights in case her condition becomes worse.

  • Do I need an attorney?

    I was driving in to the covered parking at a Home Depot store and a piece of the roof fell and hit my back window and trunk. I feel very fortunate the metal did not come through the windshield. This is a new vehicle purchased in Oct 2012. I have...

    Jose’s Answer

    If you received no injury, then you likely won't need an attorney. The insurance carrier for Home Depot should be the one to repair the damage to your vehicle.

  • Is it possible that my wife could get sued just because the vehicle was in her name and she was not in vehicle

    i was in accident, the vehicle was in her name we have coverage but it might exceed limits

    Jose’s Answer

    In Florida the owner of the vehicle can be held responsible for a crash, even if she is not in the vehicle. If you or your wife received a letter from an attorney, you need to forward that information to your insurance company immediately. They will handle it from there. Should a lawsuit happen, it is very likely that your wife will be named. Your wife's insurance company will defend her up to the limits of liability she carried on that car. Anything beyond that is her responsibility and she should seek legal counsel should this happen. Good luck.

  • When a cop is going to a traffic stop to back up another officer dose he have to have his lights on while going thru a red light

    situastion: cop gose thru a red light with no lights on and hits another car

    Jose’s Answer

    Police officers have to follow the safety rules of the road as much as anyone else. Just because they are responding to a call does not mean they don't have to watch for other drivers. If you were hit by a police officer, you may have the ability to make a claim for your injuries. Feel free to contact my law firm to discuss this further as there are different rules when dealing with these types of accidents. Good luck to you.

  • How long after a case has been settled before the plaintiff gets his/her money

    my case has been settle,and my lawyer has suppose to have send in this information on 10-2-09,but MSPRC has not receive it.

    Jose’s Answer

    Every case is different. However, once your case is settled, your lawyer still has many items that must be resolved. Some of these may include medical bills and expert fees. I always urge patience during the closing process, but understand that you have a right to know what is happening. Please call your lawyer and ask for a detailed explanation as to what is happening. At the very least, he/she should be able to get on the phone with you to try to put your mind at ease.

    Jose’s Answer

    This sounds to me like a classic example of why you need to consult a worker's compensation attorney. Nobody knows your pain level better than you. The insurance company is going to make a decision based on a financial outlook. A good worker's compensation attorney should be able to clear the weeds for you and give you a chance at receiving the medical treatment you really need. Good luck to you.

  • I was at a red light in south florida and somebody just rammed my back we both have insurance do i get money for my injuries

    how much money can i get and how long does it take i have a lawyer

    Jose’s Answer

    You need to talk to your lawyer about what types of injuries you have and the circumstances surrounding your case. Every case is different, so it is impossible to give you a specific answer. The typical rule of thumb is that your level of compensation is linked to your level of injuries. However, there are many variables that can affect this, and only your lawyer and you know those details, so you should request an in-person meeting with him/her to discuss this in detail. Good luck.

    Jose’s Answer

    No lawyer can require you to go to his or her doctor. They can recommend one if you wish, but you are by no means required to go to their doctor. You are the patient, and it is your body that was hurt, so you are the one best suited to select your physician of choice. This is true especially considering that you have health insurance. Be careful signing up with any lawyer that obligates you to do anything. Remember, you are the boss of your file and your claim, and your lawyer is working for you. Good luck.

    Jose’s Answer

    This is a very common situation when you have multiple parties involved. They usually like to point the finger at each other. You quite possibly have two separate claims here. The first is a worker's compensation claim and the second is a negligence claim for the auto accident. Some lawyers do both types of cases, but sometimes you may end up having to hire two separate lawyers. Regardless, it really sounds like you need to hire a lawyer to go over all of the facts surrounding your possible claims. Just remember that you should act quickly. Good luck.

    Jose’s Answer

    The answer to this question depends on several things. First, how did the kid get hurt? Was he being supervised by his dad? Do you own or rent? Remember that in our country, you can pretty much sue for whatever amount you want. However, that does not mean you will necessarily get that amount. Just becasue they are suing you for $25k, doesn't mean they'll get it.
