    Robert’s Answer

    I would recommend that you contact the company and complain. On these facts I would not know of a lawyer that would take this case on a percentage of the recovery received and I would never recommend paying a lawyer to sue.

    A settlement between myself, legal parent, and the auto insurance company was reached for $12,500. My son has no permanent injuries.

    Robert’s Answer

    This is a question that should be directed to the attorney representing your son. I do not recommend that your son proceed without representation. There are many fine lawyers in your city that do Plaintiff's personal injury work. I would urge you to consult one of them. Good luck.

  • Hit someone pulling out of a driveway, whose fault is it?

    I was driving backwards in a residential parking lot alley and a car pulled out of their garage and I hit them. Whose fault is it?

    Robert’s Answer

    It will depend on more facts. Did the car that pulled out of the garage pull into the alley? If so, I would argue that you had the right of way and that the pulling out car failed to maintain a reasonable lookout. Other factors would include your speed and capability of observing the pulling out car and taking evasive actions before the impact. In any event, your insurance company should be notified in case their is a claim against you. If you intend to seek damages against the other driver, notify that insurance company that you are making a claim. Good luck.
