  • Verbally accepted settlement offer just out of hospital and on Percocet. Threatened when I called foul next business day.

    Home from hospital Thurs night@9pm. In much pain Friday. Took Percocet. Very happy. I was 'floating'. Returned attorney's call. Said I just got home from hospital (my voice was still gruff) He just said "I received a settlement offer and it's a g...

    Christopher’s Answer

    The questions is not “can you” be held to the settlement, but rather, “will you” be held to it.

    In my opinion, no.

    If you can prove you were under the influence of a narcotic, you can argue that you did not have “legal capacity” to consent.

    Good luck

    Christopher’s Answer

    It sounds like:

    1. Relatively serious car accident;
    2. You are injured;
    3. You are an innocent victim;
    4. You are not sure how to proceed.

    You need legal advice. Almost all experienced personal injury lawyers offer free consultations—in person or by phone.

    Get a phone appointment. Talk to a lawyer (not a legal assistant). Get some information and get educated, then, you can make better decisions.

    Best to you in this matter.

  • Involved in auto accident. Insurance paid for property damage. No other real damages other than inconvenience. Can I sue? (AZ)

    Even though insurance already paid for property damage can I sue for negligence? Can I get double recovery or am I limited to insurance only?

    Christopher’s Answer

    If the only damage was property, and the insurance company paid for it, what do you want to sue for?

    Lawsuits are filed for payment of damages. It sounds like yours have been paid.
