    There is no standard practice on the other side's deposition. I like to notify my client in advance, and give them a chance to attend, both because they may think of something I don't, and also to let them see what the defendant looks like. And, in fact, sometimes I don't invite my client if I think they'll get upset, or won't be helpful. Your deposition is very important. It is your only chance to let the other side see how effectively you testify. It is your opportunity to make a good...

    There is no very easy answer to this question, other than to say that if he had enough insurance, the insurance company should pay off the injured person, and that will probably take care of the problem. But there are a lot of variables. Whose car was it? If it was your car, did your insurance policy exclude liability for you or him while he was driving your car? Was he doing something for you? Either as an employee or a business partner? If so, you both could be on the hook....

    I am sorry your Mom has to go through this. The injuries are the worst part, but no one should have to pay for injuries caused by someone else. If you're read the other answers, you have some idea of the types of money that might be available. If your Mom came to me, I would start out with the most likely places to get money. I would look at her auto policy, as well as the auto policy of anyone who could be considered a member of her "household." I would be looking for uninsured...

  4. My nephew was hit by a car while he was crossing the street, and the driver is now suing, how can we get this case thrown out?

    He will need a lawyer. He has a certain amount of time from the date the summons was served (the period is stated on the summons) to file an answer with the court, and he should hire a lawyer to do that for him. The best and cheapest place to get a lawyer in this case would be his insurance company. I would start out by giving a copy of the court papers to your nephew's insurance companies - both the homeowners (because he was not driving a car) and the auto insurance company. If there...

    1) It may be technically possible for an attorney to be able to consent to a binding settlement on behalf of his client - the answer tends to depend a lot on exactly what was said by who. (a) If the client is vocal, and credibly protests that he never authorized this settlement, most judges would be reluctant to enforce it. (b) It the attorney actually did consent to a settlement on behalf of his client without having the authority to do so, and the settlement was held to be binding, I...

  6. When answering a summons is it a good idea to write at the end that the defendant reserves the right to amend

    It can't hurt, but it probably won't matter. If you want to change your pleadings in the future, because you learn something new that gives you an additional defense, most judges will let you do so, regardless of whether you reserve the right to amend. But no judge's decision is guaranteed until it is made. So if you are aware of a defense, you should say so. And you should probably get a lawyer to do this for you.

    The safest approach is to hire a lawyer.Some lay people are great at conducting themselves in trial, and some aren't. Even most lawyers are not as good at representing themselves as they are at representing their clients.

    If you have insurance, and Victim Assistance is being uncooperative, you are probably better off turning in the claim to your insurance. Eat the deductible, although the insurancecompany may wind up suing to recover what it pays you; and if the insurance company wins, it may reimburse you. You can write to the judge and to the prosecutor asking that any sentence include an order of restitution. You may want to see how this works before turning in your insurance claim. You can sue...
