    The case may not have much value but you can try to make a claim. . Take pictures and document the injuries and all the facts, and contact a local lawyer, but I doubt it is worth it to most lawyers.

    You should consult with a lawyer to see if you have a case. The at fault party owes you the reasonable market value of the car. Plus you may be entitled to other damages. Find a local PI lawyer to help you.

    It is impossible to say whether you have a case without reviewing the facts in more detail and probably getting the records. You need to consult with a medical malpractice lawyer and you need to do it very soon, as there are strict time limits.

  • Should I hire an attorney now even if there is no dispute about liability? Would negligence apply when they knew from email?

    Mark’s Answer

    You or your mom should talk about this with a lawyer but there is a problem with the fact that your mom knew about the hazard, which affects the liability. Not sure when this happened but there is a two year time limit.

    Probably not a personal injury claim but there may be other causes of action. You should find a consumer law lawyer to consult with.

    Mark’s Answer

    You need a lawyer experienced with civil litigation and dealing with insurance companies, including bad faith claims. I would probably look for one in the area where the incident happened but that is not a requirement. Go with one you like and is qualified.

  • How to start to find an attorney just in case with fees and such

    Was in accident. No citations were issued. Geico determined accident was my fault and other party was suing. Looking for an attorney at this time before the case is initiated .

    Mark’s Answer

    If you are insured, your own insurance will take care of hiring a lawyer. If you are not insured, then you need to find an experienced civil litigation lawyer with personal injury experience. You can expect to pay this lawyer an hourly rate which will vary depending on where your case is filed and other factors.
