    You can stop the letters and their 'collection' activity by:

    1. Filing for a bankruptcy, if you're broke, or
    2. Suing the other party, or
    3. Asking them for a payment plan if you want to pay but can't pay it at once.

    Armen’s Answer

    There is no such legal requirement in California. Having said that, bearing litigation costs is client's responsibility. So yes, most lawyers will ask you to pay the costs or deposit funds in advance to cover the costs.

  • I am a teen who is trying to settle a auto insurance claim, how much money should I ask for?

    My chiropractor bill is $470 but I was told to ask for more.

    Armen’s Answer

    First, if you are under 18 years if age you cannot settle the case as you lack legal capacity.

    Second, if you are under 18 years of age, I recommend you go to a lawyer with your parent(s) and have your case properly evaluated before you settle.

    Third, if you are over 18, refer to number two above. However, going with parents while smart, is optional.

    Armen’s Answer

    The statue of limitations for an adult in California, is two years to file a lawsuit for personal injury case, against a non-governmental entity. Once the lawsuit is filed it takes about two years to have a trial.

    Following up every 6 months would be more reasonable time frame. If i were getting follow up calls every 6 weeks I'll never refer another PI case to that doctor. I hope this helps.

    Armen’s Answer

    This question should be asked on psychic's forum. :)

    In California, a victim of malpractice cannot get more than $250K in pain and suffering. Special damages are at cost. If you can show loss of earnings or earnings capacity, that is also factored into your damages.

    good luck,
