    Your option have pretty well been covered. I might add that if you can get a judgment against the driver in JP court then you can send it to the Texas Department of Public Safety and they could suspend the person's driver's license until the judgment is paid.

    Insurance companies take advantage of people who not represented by legal counsel. You need to meet with a personal injury attorney who can go through your entire file and evaluate your damage model and then advise you of your options.

    Need legal counsel for 11 year old child in Fort worth, TX who got in trouble in school.

    Coby’s Answer

    You have not provided enough information to make a decision or an evaluation of your son's issue. Does he need a criminal attorney, if so you are listing your question on the wrong board. If he needs counsel for something other than criminal then you need to provide some more details or information.

  • I was at work and someone backed into me. i looked at the cameras and i found the person, and they don't want to pay.

    he said he had insurance, when i did a claim thru his insurance he was not on it but his truck was. so i was nice enough to do it thru my insurance all he had to pay is my deductible which was 500 and he wont pay! nothing! what can i do??

    Coby’s Answer

    First of all if you were injured then you need to seek medical attention. Secondly, you can let your insurance company handle the property damage on their own and you may never get your $500.00 back. Or you can personally sue them in Justice Court for recovery of your $500.00. And you do not need an attorney for do so.
    If you are injured then I would suggest you seek the help of a personal injury attorney.

  • 3 year old daughter attacked by a dog.

    My 3 year old was attacked by a dog. Head ripped open and also injury to chest area. What can I sue for. I live in apts can I sue the owner of dog and apts. need help fast pls.

    Coby’s Answer

    It depends on the dog and the bite history of the dog. A bigger question is if the person who owns the dog has renters insurance or if the apartment complex was aware of the dog and its bite history. Best bet is to consult with a personal injury attorney to evaluate your options.
