You should definitely consult with a lawyer about your situation. You do not need to worry about being responsible for attorney fees for the car repairs as it is not customary for attorneys to charge a contingency fee for property damage. I help my injured clients with property damage/repair issues as a courtesy. Any attorney that you hire should do the same. Good luck.

I strongly recommend that you consult with a knowledgeable personal injury attorney. You shouldn't have to pay anything out of pocket to the attorney and a good attorney can help make sure you are getting the appropriate medical care.

Unfortunately the property damage limitations on the policy should cap the maximum that can be offered by the insurance company for your car. This is why gap insurance would be good for a financed vehicle in this kind of situation. Assuming that you are dealing with the at fault driver's insurance company, you should also ask for a copy of the declaration page and request that you be provided a declaration regarding the assets of the at fault driver to make sure that he or she does not have...

You can have the hospital lien reduced under California Civil Code Section 3045.4 if there is a recovery. There are also equitable arguments that can be made depending on the circumstances.

I am sorry that you suffered serious injuries in the fall. You may have a products liability claim against the ladder manufacturer. An expert would need to be retained to do the appropriate testing and analysis. Definitely consult with a skilled personal injury attorney.

Yes as long as there is an attorney licensed in the state where the suit is filed. If you have liability insurance for the car involved in the accident, definitely make sure to contact your insurance company and report the claim. If you are sued and you have coverage, your insurance company will provide an attorney to defend you.

Assuming this accident happened in California, you have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit against the at fault driver/owner for your injuries. Time is of the essence if you want to preserve your legal rights.

Based on your described injuries, you have a claim that is worth far more than $15,000. I strongly recommend that you contact an attorney specializing in personal injury to go over your options with you. Even if the at fault driver only has $15,000 in liability coverage, you could still pursue an underinsured motorist claim with your friend's insurance company if your friend's insurance policy has underinsured motorist coverage that is greater than the $15,000/$30,000 liability policy that the...

I would consult with an attorney ASAP. In many if not most instances, large corporations and insurance companies will not pay fair value on a claim when the person is unrepresented by an attorney.
