Attorney Doland is correct, there is no specialty for "conspiracy". You should contact the Bar Association in the county where you live. They will have a lawyer referral service that may be of assistance. Here is a link. http://www.sbcba.org/publicservices.html
I agree with Attorney Hiden. Deal with the carrier and do not escalate the matter with false information. Depending upon the amount of damage, (more than $750.00) you may need to file a SR-1 form with the DMV. That could complicate the matter. If so, you should use Avvo and consult a local attorney.
There are several factors that impact the amount that a client receives from a settlement. Costs are generally a dollar for dollar item that the client has agreed to pay in the retainer agreement. They are generally tracked during the life of the case and the attorney should have a sense of their value readily available. The value of the costs generally impact the settlement decision.
The fees here appear to be a percentage of the proceeds. This would also be an agreed to amount in the...
I agree with my colleagues that damages will be a problem in your case. From the available facts, it does not appear that you have any significant injuries or residual damages.
Use AVVO and find a Personal Injury attorney in your area to obtain a thorough review of you potential case.
Attorney Koslyn is correct, your inquiry raises many questions. Was the loan documented in writing? Agreement? Promissory Note? What are/were the terms? You mention "interests were not perfected", what interests?
More information is needed to provide meaningful assistance. i would recommend that you use Avvo to find a business attorney in your area who can work to protect your interests.
My colleagues are correct in that UIM coverage should allow you to recover for your damages related to this accident. However, obtaining a viable recovery under UIM can be a complicated task.
I would encourage you to refrain from any further direct discussions with your carrier and use Avvo to contact a Personal Injury attorney in your area.
The ability to challenge the findings of the mediation that you previously agreed to will be difficult. The agreement would need to be reviewed to ascertain if any grounds for challenging the result are available.
I would suggest you use Avvo to contact a lawyer in your area to have the matter reviewed.
Give all of the information to your carrier and they should handle it. Do not be afraid to negotiate with your carrier. Obtain your own estimates on the "totaled" value of your vehicle. Particularly if you have a loan on the vehicle. You want to try to avoid a situation where your loan is higher than the value paid by the carrier for the vehicle. Get all the value you can.
I agree with Attorney McCall that your claim would revolve around the reasonable nature of the investigation by law enforcement. They are investigating a serious crime and an hour and a half does not appear to demonstrate unreasonable conduct.
In addition, bringing suit against a public entity, i.e. a police department, may require you to comply with statutory requirements regarding Governmental Immunity. You may have to make a timely claim against such an entity or your case could be...
