    You only have a duty to pay them back if you recover from the third party's insurance. If you don't recover, then you have no duty to pay them. Your attorney can also negotiate a reduction on the lien amount depending on several factors that include, but are not limited to, the amount of your recovery. If you have any questions or would like to discuss further, don't hesitate to contact me.

  • Bug / Insect bites

    Hi, I and my wife saw an insect in our hotel bed yesterday morning after we got up. I think it has bit me in lots of areas on my hand and back can see reddish swollen areas at many places over my body. I have made a video recording of the bu...

    Sambar’s Answer

    If you are the victim of bug bites at a hotel or motel, then you have legal rights that may allow you to recover for past and future medical bills, mental anguish, pan & suffering, and other damages should they apply to your situation. If you haven't already, I would recommend getting checked yourself and your wife checked out by a physician as soon as possible. I would recommend consulting with an attorney before you pursue a formal claim/lawsuit against the hotel. If you have any questions, I would be happy to discuss your case with you.

    Sambar’s Answer

    Yes, you most likely have legal standing to sue the school. Proving up a premises liability case such as this one is very difficult in Texas. I would not recommend doing it without the assistance of legal counsel. I have handled several such cases. If you have any questions or would like to discuss further, do not hesitate to contact me.

  • Can I report a stolen car, after the new owner hasnt paid for the rest of it?

    Can an owner who sold a car to a new owner that hasnt paid report the car as stolen?

    Sambar’s Answer

    No, you probably have no remedy in criminal court. You would have to go the civil court route.

    where does defendant sit at the defense table and is it possible for the defendant to swap seating wih counsel

    Sambar’s Answer

    Defense counsel and his client/Defendant decide where they sit at defense table. There are no rules or laws I know of that say where either has to sit at their designated table. If you have an issue as to where you sit, speak to your counsel about it.

  • I was in a not-at-fault car accident receiving soft tissue injuries...

    I've been given a settlement offer. The insurance company isn't going to cover all of the doctor bills. The settlement is including the portion for the doc bill and pain and suffering. Am I able to work out some type of arrangement with the doctor...

    Sambar’s Answer

    More often than not, retaining a lawyer to represent you for such injuries and the subsequent settlement negotiations will greatly increase your offer. One reason is that a trial lawyer can threaten to file a lawsuit to get what the injured person deserves. Unfortunately, someone handling their own claim can't do that -- at least not effectively. Furthermore, a lawyer knows what laws are on your side and what you are legally entitled to recover and what arguments to make to do so. Whether your doctors want to reduce their bills are between you and your doctors. But again this is another area where a lawyer can help. I am not licensed in Ohio, but you should probably consult with someone who is.

    Sambar’s Answer

    Yes, you may be able to file a claim against the at-fault party (if you are not the at-fault party). In addition, depending on the work injury laws of California, you may be entitled to workers compensation benefits and/or other remedies against your employer. I am not licensed to practice in California, but you should probably contact a personal injury lawyer who is.
