    Assuming we are talking about your insurance and your insurance's failure to settle a case for the policy limit amount. A bad faith exists if there was a reasonable demand for a policy limit settlement and your insurance refused to accept it (before or after litigation started), and then you became burden by an unnecessary excess verdict that should have been prevented had your insurance paid the policy limit.

    If you are going to trial on a criminal or traffic matter, the attorney can generally handle for you with waiver. If personal injury case, you should be there to testify and should discuss situation with attorney.

    I would go to the veteran's hospital / doctor regarding your Injuries. Especially if its an aggregation to an old injury. Also talk to a tribal attorney ASAP to discuss your options against casino.

    You might as well ask how do you perform a shoulder surgery. Not that performing a surgery is as difficult as filing a lawsuit, but there are many issues that go along with your question especially jurisdiction questions, etc. An attorney would have to know more about your injury, your medical expenses, the location of the accident, etc., etc. etc. I would contact the state bar of the state where the accident occurred and try to contact an personal injury attorney immediately to discuss...

    The majority charge a percentage of the entire amount. However, at my firm, we always make sure that at minimum the client takes the same amount as our attorney fee. Because you were injured by a drunk driver u should hire an attorney. Punitive damages are possible.

  6. My wife ran from her probation in NY, which she got for getting 2 DWI in a 6 mos period. I want to turn her in Asap. How?

    If it is your desire to turn her in and you know where she is at, you can simply inform the probation officers regarding her current location. Let the officers decide what they want to do. If the charges are minor, they may just elect to leave the warrant in place and elect not to go after her. However, having a warrant in place will probably impact her in many ways.

  7. What are the rights of a person wrongfully accused of money laundering with charges dismissed who was denied credit based

    Answered almost 2 years ago.

    Once a case is dismissed, one still needs to seal the record assuming State Court to deem it never to have occurred on this state. Not sure who denied credit and for what basis, but generally, credit is not denied on dismissed charges. However, private businesses have a lot of latitude on who to lend and/or offer credit. You may have an action against the "person" and/or "persons" who lied (assuming they did) about the facts which eventually resulted in charges being filed.

    Going after a foreign national is difficult. Sometimes the cost and expense involve in pursuing this foreign nation may not be worth the trouble. It really depends on what the case is valued at. If you state the case is worth 1.3 million, and the offer to settle is the policy limit of 1 million. I would strongly consider taking it, avoiding the delay in litigation, only to be stuck with a judgment against a person who you may not be able to squeeze a dime from.. However, if your case...

    Yes. Probation violations can result in your arrest. Especially if you did not finish your requirements. However, depending on the charge and your history, your issue can be resolved. Feel free to contact our office to discuss the specific details regarding your matter.

  10. My 8 year old son was exposed to pornography in Las Vegas hotel bathroom on tv.

    Your 8 old son, although apparently upset over what he saw, will probably not have a lasting impression of the event. A quick view of the television probably did not cause a severe injury. Although kids are different and what does not impact one child, may terribly impact another, it will be a difficult case to establish "damages."
