  • The liable party's insurance will not pay for medical treatment until settling the claim.

    I need to see a doctor, do I go to my UI provider or through my own health insurance. At this point they said the claim is in underwriting and have not said whether the driver of the car was covered under the policy. It was a licensed driver that...

    I would contact a personal injury attorney immediately. Whether it is my firm (yes, we take caes in Louisiana), or another, that is your best bet. You will likely get the treatment you need and get more money in the process if you hire a lawyer. Feel free to give us a call. 1888-960-0020. Good luck if we don't hear from you.

  • Can a fellow employee sue our employer for a comment that the owner made to me about them?

    The owner of my company came into my office and said, "Does Robert have some sort of mental issue? He can't do anything that I tell him to!"

    Timothy’s Answer

    I do not believe this is libel. Personally, while I believe the comment to be unprofessional and mean-spirited, I do not think pursuing any kind of legal case would prove fruitful or worthy of your time.

  • At fault according to florida law

    It was determined that I was at fault according to the florida law even though the other driver slammed on her brakes right infront of me. My insurance company claims that I was uninsured at the particular time even though I had been making paymen...

    You get a judgment against you, which would probably add to the amount you already owe. I would recommend consulting a lawyer that handles wrongful denail of insurance benefits to see if you have a claim against your insurance company for bad faith. Good luck.

  • My daughter rear ended a tahoe last Oct.

    At the time she and her passenger saw just slight damage and even the other driver said he would probably not have the rear bumper repaired. My daughter jeep received major damage. Last week we received a certified letter with an estimate of over ...

    Timothy’s Answer

    The best thing to do is contact your insurance company immediately. If you did not have insurance on the vehicle, a judgment would be required before you would be legally obligated to pay it. Liable is up to a jury or judge to decide, but at that sum of money, if I didn't have insurance, I would pay the claim to avoid all of the stress and hassle of trying to fight it.

  • Did the manager have reason to fire me?

    I am 4 months pregnant and was fired from my job about 2 weeks ago for not going to work during the inclement weather we had in dallas Texas. The bad weather began on a monday night and lasted the entire week. The office was closed that Tuesday an...

    Timothy’s Answer

    In Texas, we have what is known as employment at will. If you did not sign a contract that laid out the reasons you could be fired, you can for all practical purposes be fired for agood reason, bad reason or no reason. In the instance you described, while potentially mean-pirited or heartless, I don't believe you could sue the employer. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

  • The opposing attorney called me crazy in an open court room, what penal code did she violate in Texas?

    I filed a motion and opposing attorney called me crazy loud enough for everyone to hear. We were not in session yet but she still said it in front of several people in the courtroom. What law did she violate so I can file a police report? I hav...

    Timothy’s Answer

    I don't believe any criminal law in Texas was violated. If you could show you were damaged, you might be able to pursue a defamation of character caase, but I don't bel;ieve you could show you were damaged. I would forget this happened and move on.

    Timothy’s Answer

    There are a number of places that you can try. First, I would contact the Houston Bar Association and ask them if they have any recommendations. Second, you might try the University of Houston Law School or the South Texas College of Law. Many times law schools have programs they call clinics that provide pro bono legal services to prospective clients.

    You might also check with the Christian Legal Society chapter in your area to obtain a list of people who may be willing to help. Good luck.
