I was hit by a city bus walking across the street in the city of Detroit. I am unable to work and have filed for Social Security disability. My court date was cancelled due to the bankruptcy. Does the city have no responsibility for people like me...
If you had an active lawsuit against the City of Detroit for a bus accident, you are likely going against the City directly. The City is/was always self-insured for bus accidents. The bankruptcy stayed all active lawsuits against the City. It is best to ask your attorney what is going on with your case. Personal injury claims against the City are unsecured. For claims against the City, a claim notification to the bankruptcy court was due back in February. I don't know if that notification applied to your lawsuit. I am sure that the bankruptcy process for all of the personal injury claims will take time. I am sure the process of deciding how much each unsecured claim receives will be complicated. I don't think personal injury claimants will receive anywhere remotely close to what they would have received had the bankruptcy not occurred.See question
I was told by one person it was ok because my husband and myself are in the same household, but told by another that you can't do that. Please, what is correct as the attorney has not answered the question yet. I this fraud?
You must be honest. That's the #1 rule. I'm not exactly sure what you're asking, but if you provided the care, then you have to sign the form. You should talk to the attorney for the injured person and straighten this out. What "one person" told you is meaningless, unless they're are the lawyer handling the case.See question
IVE BEEN WAITING FOR A YEAR AND HALF , ON THIS CASE AND THE LADY WONT SHOW FOR COURT SO WHAT DO YOU THINK IS GONNA HAPPEN NEXT.
If she doesn't show up for court in the criminal case, the court will issue a bench warrant for her arrest.
If you and your son are represented by an attorney in a civil case, then your attorney should move for a default judgment against her. I need more facts to give any more information. I handle a significant amount of dog bites in your area.
I visited him in his office with a witness and recorded the conversations in his office (not sure if the recording are allowed to be used). He assured me that he had similar cases in the past and that this looked very promising. My case was one of...
Obviously, I don't know who you hired and can not say there is legal malpractice based on the information provided, but there are several red flags that indicate potential issues with your attorney. They are:
1. Normally, an attorney doesn't indicate that a case is both very promising and one their strongest cases, especially in the medical malpractice area.
2. In Michigan, there is no-way that a medical malpractice case can be resolved in two weeks and even 6 months is very rare.
3. An attorney that says it normally takes 1-2 months to resolve a medical malpractice case, probably doesn't handle medical malpractice cases.
4. The fact that you paid the attorney and he isn't handling the case on a one third contingency fee is a huge red flag.
I would call the attorney and find out what is going on. I would also check the attorney out through your own research on him. The scenario you posted doesn't pass the smell test. In order to have a civil case against the other attorney, he has to have committed malpractice and there has to be a case there in the first place. Those are two key factors that can't be discerned from your post.
I was in an accident and it was not my fault. I only have PLPD and my insurance company says they don't have to help me because I didn't have full coverage. Do I really have to contact the man's insurance myself? I don't know what to do. I think h...
If he is at fault, you can obtain the $1000.00 mini-tort. His insurance will likely pay this if you can prove that your car had this value. If not, you're entitled to the value up to that amount. If you are injured, you can file a claim or lawsuit against the at-fault driver for pain and suffering. This is called a third-party claim. Additionally, if you're injured there are various no-fault benefits that you may obtain from your auto insurance company. Theses benefits that may or may not be applicable to you. A claim for no-fault benefits against your auto insurance company is called a first-party claim. If you are injured, I recommend contacting an attorney immediately.See question
He was shooting a nuisance animal trapped in a metal live cage when the bullet ricocheted and hit and logged into my leg. The bullet is still in my leg. The doctor said it would cause more harm than good to remove it at that time. This occurred in...
Yes you can. You have a negligence case against him. You have three years from the date of the accident to sue him under this theory. Whether or not you recover, will depend on several factors. If he had homeowner's or renter's insurance, his coverage might be applicable. There are many factors, including, but not limited to the type of policy he had in March 2012, which may or may not allow for a recovery. If he had no homeowner's or renter's insurance and you want to sue him personally, you can, but most attorneys will not be interested in that type of lawsuit.See question
A few days ago, my son's friend was driving him home in the middle of the night while my son was in the back seat & ran through a stop sign at a T intersection on a country road & crashed the car. They then left the car, thinking they'd handle it...
Your son should not talk to the police. He should consult with a local criminal attorney. At the very least, he should have his friend record what he did, preferably in a letter written by his friend that is signed and dated. A local criminal attorney can give your son guidance and advice on the best strategies to keep him out of trouble. This person is his friend now, but I can see the friend blaming your son for the crash if interviewed by the police and/or charged.See question
I'm on misdemeanor probation and just found out I have a warrant. Will my PO know about my warrant and arrest me at our next meeting?
You should contact your the attorney that represented you on the original charge if you were satisfied with her or him. If not, hire a new attorney to handle the violation. Do not hide it. If you don't tell your PO about it, you can get in trouble. As some of the others have mentioned, your PO may already know about it.See question

You should fight it. Hire an attorney asap.
If you have a clean record or close to it
, a decent attorney may be able to work out a deal for you.

I represented a young woman that was charged with misdemeanor larceny for shoplifting at JC Penny in Dearborn last year. I am not sure why you didn't receive a ticket and weren't taken to the AAPD. You still maybe charged. My client was taken to the DPD, given a ticket and had to post bond. She received the civil demand letter and an arraignment notice within about a week of her arrest. Do not write a letter to the strore. Please call a lawyer if you are charged.See question
