    Sorry to hear about your brother’s tragic assault. While your brother does not appear to be elderly, you should start with a local elder law attorney because it appears that he needs a guardianship established in the county where he currently resides. Also, given his condition someone needs to apply for social security disability on his behalf. Further, someone needs to contact his employer to see if he is eligible for short or long term disability. Lastly, many states have victim compensation...

    If your attorney is recommending that you settle for the maximum insurance benefits available, then there is no reason to go to trial because no insurance company will pay you more money than they are obligated to pay as per the insurance policies. If you switch attorneys then the 2 attorneys will have to fight it out regarding how the fee is split up among them. Even if you fire your attorney and settle the case yourself the attorney could still have a claim against you for attorney’s fees....

    Keep in mind that any parks department is a governmental unit, which is subject to strict notice requirements. Failure to follow these requirements will prevent you from suing. Talk with a local personal injury attorney because these notice requirements can be tricky. Good luck.

    You need to talk with your lawyer face to face and express your concerns. Trying to negotiate on your medical bills will not slow down your payment and can put additional money in your pocket because the full amount of the medical bills could be help in trust. After signing the release it has to be returned to the defense attorney, who in turn sends it to his client. The adjuster then has to request a settlement check, which has to be processed and then mailed to defense counsel. Defense...

    This question has been asked already. Since your lawyer is trying to save you money you need to give him/her the benefit of the doubt until they are able to resolve the repayment issue. These negotiations take time. You need to schedule a meeting with your attorney and ask then these questions, not us. Good luck.

    From your facts it appears that you were at fault. With only liability coverage you will have to pay for your car, and your medical bills should be covered by your health insurance or your auto insurance if you have medical payments coverage. Make sure you report this crash to your insurance company ASAP. Good luck.

    If they want to sue you then turn it over to your insurance company, they will provide you with an attorney. Remember, your insurance company has a duty of good faith to settle the claims within your policy limits. Good luck.
