You should look for a personal injury lawyer with specific experience litigating brain injury cases, particularly on behalf of minors. If the carrier does not come around and discuss a reasonable settlement, you will want a specifically experienced lawyer to take your child's case to trial. I wish the best for your child and your family.

You should retain an experienced personal injury and not deal with GEICO on your own. Your loved ones will be best served with competent representation. GEICO is not on your side and will look for every advantage over you. Don't give it that chance.

If the third party was on the clock for a different employer then you should be able to pursue that third party and his/her employer. If the third party was a co-employee, then you are likely barred from suing your co-employee. Robert F.

The combination of the release and you and your husband riding together make this a tough case. There could be some liability because the operator possibly should have refused to allow you and your husband to ride together, but a jury is likely to put most of the fault on you. The case could be expensive and even a favorable recovery may not justify the costs and time necessary. You may wish to consult an attorney to get a complete understanding of your rights.

I am sorry to hear about your experience and injuries. Sounds like you have quite a bit going on as a result of this event with the police and there are likely to be several legal issues to consider. You should discuss this matter with a qualified personal injury lawyer as soon as you are able. I would be pleased to meet with you.

Your wife has suffered a significant injury and I hope the best for her. I believe you do need a competent injury attorney and suggest that you retain one before having any dealings with the liability investigations. The goal of anyone who may be responsible for your wife's injuries is to minimize or eliminate their own culpability while blaming your wife or you for the injuries. Make the culpable parties deal with your lawyer. Best of luck to both of you and a successful recovery for your wife.

It is unlikely that the economic downturn would entitle you to a modification of the property settlement agreement. Child support is a separate obligation and should be paid independent of any other provisions in a property settlement agreement. You may be able to enforce this provision irrespective of your ability to pay down the propertry settlement obligation. To get a clear understanding of your legal rights/responsibilities you should contact a family law lawyer.

While your attorney's general experience may be that some judges will reduce a restitution order, what you agree to pay will likely be what you must pay. I'm not sure why your attorney would feel confident that the judge would reduce your restitution order at all let alone to the tune of $37,500.

First, I need to know where he filed. If in Nevada, you may need to cointact a Nevada lawyer to learn what the rules are, including waiting periods. If in Maricopa County, a petition filed in March should have been concluded by now. If he filed in Maricopa County, do you have your case number? If so, you can check the status with the court website. Depending on answers to the foregoing, we may want to file a separate petition in Maricopa County (if he filed in Nevada) or you may want to...
