    Robert’s Answer

    You should consult an attorney right away, but not necessarily a bankruptcy lawyer. Find a lawyer who understand insurance law and bad faith claims. You may be able to put pressure on your insurance carrier to settle and/or talk to the plaintiff's lawyer about "assigning" your bad faith rights in exchange for not executing on your assets. This is a complicated area of law and it may time to find the right lawyer to assist you.

  • CA Motor Vehicle Code - What is the definition of a "person?"

    All the carpool lanes on highways say "Carpool is vehicles with 2 or more persons only." Do both persons necessarily need to be currently alive? Would cremated remains satisfy the element of a second person for the carpool lane? I have heard of pr...

    Robert’s Answer

    Feel free to read the motor vehicle code to see how it defines "person". Under the law, it is generally accepted that a natural person is a real human being. So ashes do not qualify.

    You may have a case - so I suggest you use the Avvo "find a lawyer" tool. Make some calls to see if there is a lawyer interested in representing you, or even referring you to someone who can represent you. I know it will take a little more work on your part, but in the end, you will likely have a better outcome.

    Sorry to read about your increased anxiety - which is understandable. However, you cannot sue for mental or emotional distress since you were not in your car.

  • Non working mom with a brain injury. I have 3 kid under 11 yeas old. Husband wants to go to Austrailia and I do not. What are

    kids are ages 10, 8, and 3.

    Robert’s Answer

    This is not a legal question, unless you or your husband filed for a divorce or separation. If there is no filing, I would suggest you & your husband see a family therapist or simply have a long heart to heart.

    If there is discussion of separation or divorce, you should consult with a family law lawyer (same thing as a divorce lawyer) right away. There are options but you need to talk to a lawyer right away.

    Robert’s Answer

    I agree with Mr. Allen. Certainly a work comp. case. There may also be a wrongful termination case as well. You should consult with a worker's comp. lawyer and a employment lawyer.

    Good luck.

  • Do I have a case

    I was walking out of a marshalls yesterday and as I stepped of the curb, I stepped into a small pothole and fell while holding my 8 month old daughter. I have a swollen ankle, a really hurt knee inside and my backs hurting. I can barely walk but c...

    Robert’s Answer

    Sounds like you are on the right track. You learned Marshall's controls the parking lot where the incident occurred. Make sure you (or someone for you) takes photos of the parking lot - not just close ups of the pothole, but photos showing the location of the pothole. For example is it near the entry/exit or is it in a place where there is a lot of foot traffic. Also when taking a photo of the pothole, you should put something next to it to show the size and depth of the pothole. For example, use can a ruler or a piece of notebook paper, or a book. Finally, make sure to take photos of your swollen ankle - both close ups and some showing your entire leg and as silly as it sounds, a photo showing that it is your leg on your body that has the swollen ankle.

    Here are few other things to do: keep the receipt as proof you were in Marshalls on the day of the incident. When you see your doctor, make sure to tell him/her it is from a fall at a Marshalls. Finally, before talking to insurance co. or representative from Marshalls, you should consult with a personal injury lawyer.

    Robert’s Answer

    You should contact your lawyer and discuss this issue. Here are a few questions to consider asking: what was the other car's insurance policy limit; do I have uninsured motorist coverage; did the hospital send you, the lawyer, a lien notice pursuant to Civil Code Section 3045; what is the exact breakdown of the $25k settlement; will you, the lawyer, negotiate down the hospital bill.

    Good luck.

    Robert’s Answer

    This is a very interesting matter. Unfortunately, you are on the personal injury page.

    You should be on the intellectual property page. Intellectual property will covers copyright.

    You may also have a wage and hour claim which would be in the employment section.

    Good luck and I hope you are successful.
