  • Motor vehicle accident and insurance

    If i was in a mva as a passenger and i'm not insure and need medical attention will the insurance premium on the policy holder increase even if he/she was not at fault?

    Paul’s Answer

    No. Go get treatment! The person paid for personal Injury protection or "PIP" for this very reason. You should definitely use it. If you have any other questions, feel free to email me at paul@rebeinlaw.com

  • Do I need a discrimination lawyer

    Student suspended from school because of dyeing hair a lighter shade

    Paul’s Answer

    This issue comes up quite frequently. School dress/appearance codes have been generally upheld. The question in your case is whether the school policy explicity prohibits the hair color at issue. In addition, if other students have similar hair colors and have not been disciplined, you may have a case of selective enforcement. I suggest you contact the Florida Chaper of the American Civil Liberties Union. They have handled many cases like this and may be able to help you.

    Paul’s Answer

    The mortgage company is required to name you as parties to the foreclosure action because you inherited the house under the will. You should be able to negotiate with the bank to provide a "deed in lieu of foreclosure" which will allow them to get title to the property without going through the foreclosure. Make sure you get the bank to agree that there will be no deficiency judgment. If the bank won't agree to this proposal, you should retain an attorney. Feel free to contact me at 813-356-0567 if you would like to discuss this further. Good luck!

    Paul’s Answer

    First of all, let me say that I am sorry that this happened to you. The first thing you should do is contact the website and/or website host and demand that the pictures be immediately taken down. You should also get the prosecutor involved in helping you get the pictures taken down.

    Yes, you can sue the person who put the pictures of you on the web for invasion of privacy. Of course, if they do not have significant assets, it might not be worth your time because even if you get a judgment, you might be able to collect anything. Good luck!

    Paul’s Answer

    I think if you can get a full refund of your money now, you are better off than if you file a class action lawsuit. Class actions can take years to complete and the outcome is never guaranteed. Of course, you should consult your lawyer about this strategy. There may be statutory fine

  • Will filing bankruptcy cancel a pending judgement against me for personal injury negligence?

    I am being sued for a car accident that my ex had in my car 4 years ago. The plaintiff says It's due to my negligence and is suing for $30,000. I have no home, no real assets. I have a car that I am making payments on, that's it. I was considering...

    Paul’s Answer

    I agree with Mr. Taylor's analysis of the bankruptcy issue. Do you have insurance? If so, you should report the claim to your insurance company immediately. If you have insurance that will cover this claim, you will not need to file for bankruptcy. Also, did your ex spouse have insurance coverage at the time of the accident? If so, you should also report the accident to that insurance company as well. The insurance companies may have a duty to defend the case and/or to cover any judgments or settlements arising from the case.

    If neither you or your ex spouse have insurance, you should see if the claimant has uninsured motorists coverage. If so, they may be able to recover from their own insurance company without levying on your assets.

  • Do I have a case for malpractice

    Over the past year I have had 4 major surgeries due to a leaking appendix that was not caught in time, as a result of the toxins released into my intensions the infection that set in caused complete narcoses of the appendix, sigmoid colon and abou...

    Paul’s Answer

    You may have a case. It depends upon whether you can get an expert to give an opinion that your doctor breached the standard of care by failing to diagnose the appendix problem. If so, you have a case. This will likely depend on what your medical records say and what tests the doctor ran (or should have run).

    The viability of your case also depends upon when the malpractice happened and when you discovered it. Missouri, like all states, has a statute of limitiations which limits the time for you to bring a case for medical malpractice. You should contact an attorney as soon as possible to discuss your case so that you do not let the statute of limitiations run.

    I hope that you recover soon. Good luck!
