    You Should report this accident to your insurance company immediately. You need to make sure that the proper documents get filed with the MV. Also, you should go to your healthcare provider for a check up to make sure you are ok. Go back to the scene to look for witnesses, take pictures of where the accident happened and your car. Send a certified letter to the driver of the car confirming the contents of your conversation at the scene. She later will likely deny it after talking to the...

    It all depends on the terms of your written contract with your lawyer. Usually the contract will say the lawyer gets one third before the law suit is filed and 40 percent after that. The lawyer's fees come off the top unless a minor is involved (25% attorney fees for minors usually), then costs, the medicals and other vendors and the remainder belongs to the client. The Doctor should only be giving you treatment that helps your condition and his services may be covered by your health...

    There are a few ways you can get more than the policy limits. First, you should do an asset check to determine if the Defendants can pay more than the policy limits. If you go to trial and get a verdict for more than the policy limits and the defendants has enough assets to satisfy the amount over the policy limits , you could do that. Additionally, if the Defendant does not have assets over the policy limits, you could make a policy limits demand based upon your special damages and general...

    This is very suspicious on the part of your Doctor especially since he took you co-payment. I would call the Doctor and ask for his lawyers address. Then send a letter to his lawyer and inform him that the Doctor took you co-pay thereby acknowledging the health insurance available for him to collect. This may be a part of a bigger scheme the Doctor is involved in related to billing practices. If he has done this with others there may be a potential mass joinder or class action against this...

    In a non- medical malpractice setting and in a case not involving a Government entity the statute may not start running until the person turns 18 years old. However, each case is different and there are many variations to each case.

    Since your husband was uninsured he will be limited on the type of damages he can recover. He will not get general damages for things like pain and suffering. He may be able to recover economic damages for loss income and the like. Also, he will be entitled to be reimbursed for the property damage to his car. He may also be able to recover as the victim of a crime.

    If a quit claim deed is executed and filed with the County recorders office that would give notice to the world of the transfer of whatever interest in the property the transferor had, if any. A Quit Claim only transfers the interest that was held in the property. Assuming the transferor had a legitimate interest in the property and transferred it once by quit claim, then the Title company would pick this up and Tom Brown would not be able to get the mortgage because the bank would check the...

    You need to look at all of the options. It may be possible that there is some legal reason to suppress the evidence they have showing you are legally responsible for the offenses charged. Also, there may be a way to challenge the BAC reading. The facts do state whether there has already been a DMV hearing. You also may want to look into a Helmandollar waiver. The Helmandollar Waiver is something in California that the court can give you if your DUI has been lowered to a different offense (...

    With your injuries and surgeries it would be a good idea to file the law suit right away. Why wait especially since courts are setting cases out for trial over a year after filing in downtown los angeles which iz where your suit has to be filed. Then you can do your written discovery and get all the details under oath from defendant.
