    Good lawyers almost always get higher settlement offers. than individuals. A lawyer should also seek to maximize your recovery by negotiating with the health insurer, and perhaps even the medical provider (for the uninsured or co-pay amounts). If it's not too late, hire a local personal injury lawyer!

    She doesn't t want a Johnson County jury! It sounds like his estate and wrongful death beneficiaries need a California medical malpractice lawyer. Hopefully, California does not have not tort reform benefiting doctors and health care providers to the detriment of the consumer (like here in Texas).

    YES! YOU NEED A LAWYER. Give no statements. Fill out no forms. Just follow doctors' orders and promptly hire a board certified personal injury lawyer to protect your interests. Adjusters often say people will get more without a lawyer. This is usually considered the crime of unauthorized practice of law. Maximizing your recovery includes hiring a lawyer that insurers know will try your case. Many other matters must be handled, including: 1. determining the proper primary...

    You need a judgment against the drunk driver before the insurance company is obligated to pay you a penny. If you let the insurance company lay under the log, your statute of limitations will expire and you will lose the right to follow lawsuit. Promptly hire a board-certified personal injury trial attorney. John Zgourides (713) 876-7001 www.zgourides.com

    The insurer will not likely honor its oral agreement. You will likely only receive the liable party's property damage policy limits of $25,000 and the liability insurer will require you to sign a release. If you wish to seek more, you will need to file suit, hoping that the liable driver has assets not exempt from execution. If you have full coverage (meaning collision coverage and/or underinsured motorist coverage) on your car, turn the claim in to your insurer. After paying your claim at 100%...

    In state court in Texas, institution of suit includes filing suit, issuance of citation, and personal (or substituted) service. The lawsuit must be "instituted" within the applicable limitations period absent an exception to the statute of limitations. If a claimant exercises due diligence seeking to serve a defendant after limitations has run, that is an exception. John Zgourides www.zgourides.com

    Texas law requires that contingent fee contract be in writing. You mentioned that you have not met with your lawyer. I am curious about whether you have a written contract. You may not have assigned an interest in your claim. The nonstandard automobile insurance company writing policies Texas recently went under. I believe it is called Drivers Insurance out of Georgia. Most people who purchase this type of insurance do not have nonexempt assets against which you could execute a judgment. I...

    Tell your lawyer he needs to seek court-protection from a subpoena on the basis of attorney – client privilege. When you give a statement to your liability insurance company, it can be argued that you did so "to facilitate the provision of legal services," thereby making the statement to the liability insurer attorney – client privileged. This is because your liability insurer has a responsibility to defend you if you are sued in a civil case. Taking your statement helps them to prepare to...
