If you settled the property damage only, you can still proceed. If you settled the personal injury part of your claim, you cannot now go back. If you are not sure, have an attorney review your documents.
Indiana law prohibits a direct lawsuit against a driver's insurer by another driver. Therefore, the lawsuit must name the other driver, in this case, your boyfriend. He needs to send a copy of the lawsuit papers to his insurer right away. He should also call them and let them know that he has been sued. They will hire a lawyer to defend him and pay any judgment or settlement up to the amount of policy coverage.
Your attorney has had your case for many years. He is in afar better position than anyone on here to make recomendations to you. Meet with the attorney and ask hi to explain why a settlement is the best route to pursue.
Our condolences. It sounds like you were very close to your brother. I agree with the other counsel. However, to be more specific, you can open an estate and seek to be appointed as personal representative. If approved, you can proceed to file suit on behalf of the Estate. There is a specific procedure in Illinois that would permit you to be appointed for the sole purpose of filing the lawsuit. I suggest that you contact a licensed Illinois attorney and obtain a consultation. If...
Yes. Contact an injury lawyer for a free consultation. Injury lawyers take these cases on a no recovery no fee basis so you have nothing to lose. Good luck and I hope that your daughter makes a full and quick recovery.
You need to contact an attorney as sons as possible as there is a two year statute of limitations-which can be tolled ( extended) under certain circumstances that are fact specific. You may be able to proceed but must see an attorney immediately. You should have all medical records from both surgeries and office records from the initial surgeon. I can't emphasize this enough-see a lawyer immediately.
How fortunate that the baby is doing well! That being said, this forum is really designed for general questions and not fact specific inquiries about case values. There is no common formula for evaluating a claim anymore since the insurance companies now use computers and software to evaluate a case. There are way too many variables involved for any type of accurate estimate based on a paragraph submission. Lawyers review medical records, bills, life expectancy, other similar cases, the...
Ask your insurer to state in writing why he is not a covered driver. Since he was rear ended, why havent you made a claim against the trucking company since they may be at fault. Hopefully, your father was not hurt.
Someone is giving you some pretty poor advice. If you are making a claim against your employer, that is known as a workers compensation claim. Pain and suffering is not an element of a worker's compensation claim. If some other company constructed the cement wall that collapsed and you are not barred from filing a suit against that company, you might be entitled to pain and suffering. I suggest that you seek representation fromm a local injury/comp lawyer.
A different physician with a more detailed history with the additional symptoms that you now could be related to the accident would be helpful. An argument could easily be made that the earlier doctor's opinions were premature. You should contact a victim's attorney as soon as possible. Most, like myself and others on AVVO provide free consultations. Good luck.
