After a year of stalling, its time to file suit. What possible reason could you still have to think that they will settle with you or act reasonably unless and until you force them to. You need an experienced attorneySee question
I was rear ended by a semi truck in traffic. I went to the hospital and was told I have a soft tissue injury to the neck. I also followed up with my care provider and was told the same. My left shoulder has been giving me trouble. I have three chi...
YES, you really do need a lawyer.
If you want FAIR compensation for your injury, that is. If you want to leave the definition of "fair" up to an insurance adjuster, then don't get a lawyer. But those people are not paid to be fair. Judges are paid to be fair. Insurance adjusters are paid to "adjust" or limit the risk and expense to their employer. Plaintiff's attorneys such as myself are paid to maximize the results for their clients. Between the competing interests of experienced professionals, one side with an adjuster or defense lawyer, the other with an experienced attorney, a fair result often can be negotiated. When fair can't be agreed upon, that's where the Judge comes in. An attorney can present your case in court if necessary. So, are you going to leave yourself at the mercy of the insurance company? If you want what's fair, YES, you really need an attorney.See question

You very well may have a good case for both. Answering as an attorney who does workers comp, if you hurt your back at work and had life changing surgery, then your workers comp case is a valuable asset that should be managed by an experienced attorney. Most of the good attorneys here on Avvo offer a free, confidential consultation. Start making some calls, find an attorney that you're comfortable with and enforce your right to benefits. Your workers comp attorney may also be able to guide you in the selection of an employment lawyer.
Get started, and good luck!.See question
State Farm driver blew a stop sign and collide while my bf was driving my 2010 Chevy Malibu. Driver claims that he was being chased by 3rd car (that flees) which made him come out to intersection and hit my car. It's almost been a month and State...
This sounds like a flimsy excuse for blowing a stop sign to me, but if the insurance company is "investigating" there is no way to hurry them up. If you have collision coverage on your car you should go through your own insurance; if not you are at the mercy of their timetable. As to your boyfriend, he should talk to a good personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.See question

There isn't a question here, but I'm guessing that you're wondering if you can get more money because you are still having problems due to the accident. The answer is no. Assuming that you've signed a release and accepted a payment, there is nothing else that you can do.See question
Part of my heel was chopped off during a pedicure a few years ago, by an illegal razor utensil that are no longer able to be carried in nail salons. My lawyer is wanting me to settle for $3000 which is supposed to cover med bills crutches and pain...
Yes, you can fire your lawyer and attempt to find someone else at any time. But, nobody that gets a brief summary from you is going to know as much about your case and it's settlement value as your current lawyer. Most of the time, people are far better off taking the advice of their attorney at this stage of the case.See question
Happened at night in a mid traffic area. The claim was close due to a period of Corrections. The claim was reopened and they imminently want a recorded statement. Founders insurance.
Certain companies will deny claims for all sorts of reasons. They may say that they never would have sold you insurance if they knew that your license was suspended and therefore the policy is void. You should be represented by counsel in this matter.See question
I was in a car accident and not at fault. My car is considered totaled from all the damages. The auto insurance is offering me less than I owe. I have no car now, I lost my down payment and upside down with the payment.
Unfortunately, that will do you no good. The most that your insurance company has to pay under collision coverage is the cost of repairing the vehicle or the value of the car, whichever is less. The amount you owe is not a factor.
The good news is, sometimes a car dealership will be willing to combine your old loan with a new loan in order to sell you another car. Give that a try.See question

He was worked literally to death,
I'm sorry to hear of your husband's death. However, you have not posted enough details for anyone to accurately assess you potential case. You should consult privately with an experienced personal injury attorney concerning the details. Most of the good personal injury attorneys here on Avvo offer a free consultation.See question
