    ​As the victim of an accident you have a number of rights which could be lost if you do not have the benefit of an experienced personal injury lawyer. The law is complex and provides many opportunities for insurance companies to deny or reduce benefits. Insurance companies have no legal obligation to advise you of your rights or pay you reasonable compensation. Keep in mind insurance adjusters are trained professionals whose job is to settle claims quickly for the least amount possible. You, on...

    If the insurance defense lawyer is claiming you were 40% at fault, this would reduce your claimed damages commensurately. In motorcycle case, there is often an affirmative defense of speeding or abruptly changing lanes. Your lawyer is usually in the best position to advise you of the best course of action. However, when you have been injured, the lawyer you choose can make a difference. As long as your lawyer has successful personal injury trial experience it's probably best to defer to his...

    I generally agree with the answers of my colleagues that this is a tough case because of the short time the pie was on the floor to give notice of the slip hazard. However, the casino may have negligently failed to use reasonable care in not placing skid mats in the area, given the possible knowledge of the continual dropping of food debris and knowledge that no amount of inspection and cleaning could rid the floor of all of it.

    Although an owner has a duty to use reasonable care in maintaining the premises in a safe condition free from hazardous debris, users of the premises have a duty to watch for open and obvious dangerous conditions. While a person is not expected to keep their eyes fixed on the ground ahead of them, there are certain places such as a public bathroom which require the user to be on alert for water, paper and other material which could cause a fall. The outcome of your possible case also depends on...

    Although you may disagree with the claimed injuries of the lady, your insurance company has a duty to defend and indemnify you. It's also important to remember when an insurance company gambles, they do so with their own money, not with the assets of their insured, you. If the plaintiff has agreed to settle the case within your policy limits and your insurance company refuses, resulting in a verdict at trial in excess of your policy limits, your insurance company may be guilty of handling your...

  8. Am I at fault (collision while reversing)?

    Private property collision cases usually follow the rules of the public roads. Generally, a driver has a duty to make sure the coast is clear when reversing. However, the driver of the vehicle behind you has a duty to maintain a safe distance between his car and yours in front of him. This is likely a case of comparative fault. If no one was hurt, the matter should be resolved informally between insurance companies.
