    I believe you should without further delay report the collision to the police. Without a police report, you are unlikely to find any insurance company very responsive to the claim. For this reason, you should consult an attorney.

    Most lawyers specialized in the field of personal injury will be glad to provide you with initial consultation free of charge. One of the major problems with "chancing it" by not hiring a lawyer is that one or more of you are injured more than initially thought. I have field dozens and dozens of calls from potential clients who found themselves in this position, yet they had done already done damage to their case by not initially consulting a lawyer. Without a doubt, you should consult a...

    I agree with the comments of Mr. Cook - liability for such injuries and damages will be very complicated - much too complicated for a non-attorney to handle. A couple of other pointers....do not give a statement to the manufacturer until such time as you have engaged counsel to represent you. Also, you must preserve the defectively designed, marketed and/or manufactured product. I can vouch for Bexar County attorneys Frank Herrera and his son Jorge. Good luck.

  4. After a judgement, can you be billed for the judgement and then some?

    The best thing for you to do is to get a copy of the actual judgment. This can be obtained from the District Clerk in the county where the judgment was entered. It is very likely that the judgment provides that you pay any of their attorneys' fees, taxable court costs (which would include the filing fees) as well as prejudgment and/or post judgment interest. That is fairly standard for a judgment for nonpayment (i.e., breach of contract or suit on sworn account). Once you obtain a copy of...

    Any hope of such a result would require the work of an attorney. Not a company who refuses to identity the attorney who would actually perform the work. Provision of legal services is personal - the client should get to know his/her attorney. I would be suspicious.

    I think it is imperative that you not delay until the time of the underlying trial. I think I would go back to the DA and them them for their assurances; however, you wish to do more just to make sure everyone knows your position clearly. Ask the DA if you could write a letter to the DA for their file and ask them exactly what to say. That way your letter would have to go to the defendant. Remember though that you might have to answer some tough questions if you are subpoenaed to testify as...

    From your question, it sounds as if you were properly insured on the date of the collision. The insurance company owes your wife a duty to provide a legal defense and upon receipt of a proper Stowers demand, a duty to settle within the policy limits if presented the opportunity. If the injuries/damages are higher than the policy limits purchased by you, I strongly suggest you engage counsel to ensure the insurance carrier is properly protecting your interests.

    I agree with the other answers insofar as the likliohoo of the Dept Store paying "at the end of treatment." Further, the more severity of your injury, the less likely the Dept. Store will pay your medical bills. You do not want the Dept Store dictating the quality or quantity of your medical care. I agree you should consult with an attorney to determine whether or not a premises liability claim can be successfully made. This will depend largely on available evidence for whether you can...

    I'm not clear as to the what you state as "excuse of claim on product." And if you have a written contract that gives the customer some type of remedy if there is a "excuse of claim." Depending upon the industry you are in, a lien might be available. You could file a claim for breach of contract. There are several courts that might have jurisdiction, depending on which county the action would be filed in - depending primarily on the "amount in controversy." It is possible the claim could...

    You should ask your attorney WHY he says your "accident claim is $30,000.00." Given that Texas requires as a minimum, insurance policy limits of $30,000 per person (or $60,000 per accident), this is all the insurance that is available. Your attorney should also inquire whether or not the defendant has ability to respond in damages over and above the insurance policy limits.
