I am a student and in a emergency situation. My roommate got into a really bad car accident and because of it she can no longer get up the 2 flight of stairs to live in our 3rd floor apartment. She also can't afford to pay to live there due to the...
Of course, you should talk to the landlord. That said, the apartment is a valuable commodity. It is worth x dollars per month for which you can be held liable with your roommate, jointly and severally. This means that the landlord can collect the entire sum from either of you. Redouble your efforts to find one or more subtenant. How long will your roommate be unable to climb stairs? If the accident was not her fault and she has such serious injuries, why hasn't the other carrier surrendered the policy limits? If this is temporary, she can borrow against her claim. Her attorney can better direct her in that regard.See question

My WC case no driving for on job injury
Very routine questions. Why aren't you asking these questions of the attorney you hired? Are you saying that you had a work-related auto accident and you settled the case with the auto carrier? If so, you CANNOT take ANY money before you repay the Workers' Compensation insurance. Make your attorney explain all of this. If he refuses, cut your losses and seek counsel who is willing and able to answer your questions.

The accident in question occurred in Wisconsin, which is where he lives. The problem is that his son never transferred the tile into his name. He was ticketed for the accident. The insurance company is finding me at fault since the the vehicle was...
If the vehicle was insured, no worries, simply report it to your carrier. If it was NOT insured, you really need to discuss this with an attorney who practices in Wisconsin. Every state has slightly different criteria for holding the titleholder of a vehicle responsible. In Illinois, on your facts, you would probably NOT be held liable because the vehicle was not being driven on your direction or for your benefit.
Insurance is the best option because they have a duty to defend you which means they will bear the expense of an attorney. Hopefully you had the foresight NOT to remove the vehicle from your policy. In that case, the new "owner" would be covered as a permissive driver.See question
I live in Illinois. I had a slip and fall injury with a product manufactured in Texas. I found a personal injury lawyer I really like, but he won't take the case because he said he doesn't know if the case should be filed in Illinois or Texas or...
If you were injured in Illinois, Illinois in a proper venue. It is difficult to believe that your attorney does not understand venue. It may be that he believes the case is not viable. Your injury would need to be near catastrophic to make a product liability suit cost effective.See question

If I understand, you had an accident that was determined to be your fault and your car was classified as a total loss. You only have two choices:
1.) Accept the money your insurance gives you and walk away (you still owe the bank unless you purchased gap insurance); or
2.) Accept the money your insurance gives you and buy the it back for salvage value and repair it, yourself.
You have no need of an attorney unless you received a traffic citation. If you did, you should contact a traffic attorney ASAP.See question

This accident happened years ago and I suffered badly.
It was legally possible for 2 years but a waste of time and money. You should pursue an uninsured motorist claim with YOUR insurance carrier. You NEED an experienced PI attorney to do this effectively. You have probably agreed to a panel arbitration in your insurance contract. Your attorney will explain the details.
Your insurance company will then go after the at-fault driver and their license will be suspended until they repay the debt on a schedule that your carrier agrees to.See question
