    An attorney concentrating in personal injury cases, is probably not the best choice for you and your husband. You may want to consult with a lawyer who is familiar with laws relating to credit unions and perhaps banking. I commend you and your husband for being diligent about your accounts and making sure this doesn't happen again. I strongly suspect that after pointing out the mistake to the appropriate people and with continued monitoring of the account, this will not happen again....

    I am so sorry for your loss. There are fewer things more tragic than having to bury a child. I strongly suggest you retain an experienced personal injury/wrongful death attorney. A proper investigation can reveal a number of avenues of recovery for your tremendous loss.

    I strongly suggest that you contact an experienced Illinois injury attorney. As others have mentioned, just because an insurance company initially denies they are responsible for paying damages, does not mean they are correct. I good lawyer will investigate and file all appropriate paperwork to make sure your rights are protected. There are also other options to explore. Does the drunk driver has his own insurance coverage? Was he coming from a bar that "over served' him? You may also...

    An insurance company can require you to sign releases before they make payments. I would read the paperwork and make sure it includes everything you are entitled to be compensated for- such as the car rental. Be careful of legal language you may not understand. Make sure you read AND understand everything you sign. You may want to go over the release language with an attorney in your jurisdiction.

    I strongly believe that you should NOT talk to the driver's insurance company without consulting an attorney. Here is the link to a post I published on my child injury lawyer blog - http://www.thesafestline.com/what-do-i-do-when-the-other-drivers-insurance-company-calls/ I hope your daughter's recovery goes well. It is certainly one of the most challenging times a parent can go through. Ken

    You have given us one of the most important factor in these types of cases. Namely, whether the school had notice of the dangerous condition. I strongly recommend you contact an experienced child injury attorney right away. I have seen many instances where the company's insurance company "agrees" to pay medical bills but either stops paying or refuses to offer a fair settlement. There is almost never a downside to contacting an attorney. Initial consultations are free and you will obtain...

  7. My mother was rear ended 2 days ago and shes been feeling bad since then. Is there a deadline in Illinois for going to the doc?

    There is no deadline to see a doctor in Illinois. Of course, the longer your mother waits to seek medical attention, the more difficult it will be to prove that the crash caused her injuries. All the best to your mother for a full and speedy recovery.

    You will likely have a challenge winning a defamation case against your landlord. I agree with advise to seek counsel from an attorney concentrating in disputes between landlords and tenants.

    Yes, you may very well be able to take her to small claims court and file a lawsuit for damages. Depending on your friend's financial situation, it may not be worth pursuing. Getting a judgment is only part of the battle. You need a way to collect the money; which is especially difficult without insurance coverage. It may be advisable to work out a fair settlement with your friend. Even taking a bit less now may be beneficial to you. You may also want to consult with an attorney...

    Maybe. As others have mentioned, it depends on the particular facts involved and your relationship to the lawsuit. For example, if you are a medical professional involved in the care and treatment of the patient, I would strongly recommend you consult with an attorney. You need to learn about any potential liability you may have. I understand you mention that the "event" occurred when you were not present. However, your pre-occurance may be relevant to this issue. In some instances, an...
