  • How does an intent to seek reimbursement for damages paid due to auto loss work in a car accident?

    I was involved in a car accident several months ago. I had the minimum coverage, and there were two other drivers that were involved in the accident. My insurance found me mainly liable for one of the cars, but my insurance said that it would not ...

    Kevin’s Answer

    Not that this helps much at this point but I always point out to my clients the need to carry adequate insurance, the minimum policy will just not protect you when you have either caused an accident or have been injured in an accident. It really doe not cost that much more to up your insurance policy you need to do a comparison to see how much more a little more coverage will actually cost and I think you will be surprised.

    I got injured on the job July 2012 and have not been released from the doctor. Can they do this?

    Employment Law and Workers Compensation law frequently cross paths, I would recommend that you go meet with a workers compensation lawyer to discuss your situation and detail. They can tell you if workers compensation law has been violated or not.

    Kevin’s Answer

    If your father has his own vehicle insurance he should contact them immediately, if not he needs to contact a civil defense attorney to figure out what is going on. It sounds like possibly an insurance company paid out money and now thinks your dad is liable in some fashion and is trying to recoup what they have paid out.

    Kevin’s Answer

    If your husband was injured while working he needs to hire a workers compensation attorney, and if the the injury was caused by the negligence of a third party he needs to hire a personal injury attorney. Either way it is definitely time to go meet with an attorney to discuss the situation. I would start with a workers compensation attorney as we are well versed in handling workers compensation claims simultaneously with personal injury cases.

  • A driver ran a red light & hit my husband. No witnesses, version to version. The driver is denying that he ran the red light.

    My husband was driving pass an intersection, & was hit by a man who ran a red light. The man must've realized that he was driving thru a red light, & hit his brakes rite in the middle of the intersection. My husband was not under my insurance, si...

    Kevin’s Answer

    Your insurance company is likely denying your claim since your husband was not listed as an insured on your vehicle, which they are justly doing. Since the amount of damages is relevantly small you could take the driver to small claims court. Again it will be difficult to win without proof of who caused the accident. Sometimes you need to take situations like this and learn and move on. In the future you should not let anyone drive your car who is uninsured.

    what if I don't feel my attorney is really been aggressive in my def fence . . . ?

    Kevin’s Answer

    Another suggested way to communicate with your attorney is by email. If you have questions regarding your case a quick email can give you a good idea of how in tune your attorney is with your case. And keep in mind that depending how long your current attorney has had your case it might be difficult to get another attorney to take it over at this time.

  • What questions are they going to ask me at a workers compensation deposition?

    I filed a workers comp claim and I was denied. I am now expecting a deposition soon and would like to know what the questions consist of

    Kevin’s Answer

    If you are currently represented by an attorney they should meet with you prior to the deposition to discuss the details of your case and what to expect during the deposition. Above you have been given a pretty good list of the basic subjects that will be gone over in your deposition. But for now contact your attorneys office to make sure you will be meeting prior to your deposition being taken.
