How long does a police officer in Florida have to file an accident report? My wife was involved in an accident over 10 days ago and the accident report isn't available because FHP has still not filed the report.
Typically 10 days but FHP can be slower sometimes. If you get to 15 you should call. Try looking it up on buycrash.com.See question
Do attorneys that practice malpractice, practice both legal and medical or are these two different kinds of attorneys? How can I research the cases the attorney has pled to see his track record?
Medical malpractice attorneys sue doctors. Legal malpractice attorneys sue lawyers. There is no different kind of attorney for each of those… Simply different attorneys who focus on different areas of practice.See question

That depends pretty heavily on what type of doctor you went to. Often times family physicians are reluctant to get involved in motor vehicle accidents and, thus, won't give opinions on causation. You should go to someone who specializes in treating motor vehicle accident injuries who is qualified enough to make the determination and give that person a full history so they can give you a second opinion on causation.See question

That's a complicated question to answer because there's a "technically" answer and a "practically" answer. Assuming your attorney has exhausted all avenues to look for additional insurance coverage, there is technically nothing that REQUIRES you to accept the policy limits only. However, practically, whether you will ever be able to COLLECT more than the available insurance depends on the financial worth of the defendant, how her assets are structured and lots of other very fact-specific details you should discuss with your attorney.See question
While we just started the case, he just filed for bankruptcy. This pretty much means Im not going to get anything and it will probably be discharged at final bankruptcy hearing. Means he gets to not pay me a dime.
Actually, if he had insurance you can still get at least that amount even if he files bankruptcy but you need to get an attorney ASAP so you can file a claim in the bankruptcy case.See question
It was Largo fl. June 28th they caught the guy. He is in custody. Is there anyway he can receive compensation?
Unless the attacker has assets or unless you can make some case against, for instance, a business for something like negligent security, his best bets are victim's services through the state. Go here for more info: http://myfloridalegal.com/victimsSee question

Yes, there is the possibility of getting more. First of all, if she was in a vehicle owned by the business, the business itself would have liability. Second, since she was driving she has personal liability as well. You should hire an attorney immediately to explore the different options of pursuing insurance between the business and the individual. That attorney could also determine whether the business has reachable assets against which you could try and collect.See question

They should get PIP from the friend's policy. Potentially uninsured motorist coverage as well. If the friend was at fault, they might be able to claim on the liability coverage on his/her policy. The first step is to get a medical evaluation. An attorney will be able to help in making sure that, if coverage is available, your daughter would not be out of pocket on medical expenses or wage loss.See question
My friend's mother sustained knee injuries in a car accident. Now she has knee pain. The MRI reveals early inflammatory arthritis but she never had any symptoms before the car accident. Neither did she see any orthopedics before. Should she reque...
Depending on when the MRI was taken, the doctor may not be able to say that there was no pre-existing injury. He may or she may only be able to say that whatever condition was there was asymptomatic (per history). Even if there is a latent condition which is not symptomatic but which is caused to be symptomatic by an accident, it is still a recoverable injury.See question

It sounds like you have a clear case against this woman, especially with the witness statements. You should seek representation as soon as you can because of time limits involved in automobile accidents if you want your insurance to pay medical bills.See question
