    The comments of the attorneys are correct. It is very important that you get photos of the dog bite now, and as things progress. Most attorneys will handle your case so that you will not have to pay anything going forward. It will be handled on a contingency fee basis, and the attorney should advance all of the costs. Our firm certainly handles these on a contingency fee basis, and advances all costs associated with the case. It is true that a dog owner is strictly (automatically...

    It is not too late to hire an attorney. Whether or not an attorney can "net" you more than what has been offered, depends on a lot of things, which are not known in your question. Soft tissue injuries are becoming more and more difficult to prove, in terms of what you can recover, compared to the way things used to be. The insurance companies have convinced the public that these cases end up raising the insurance rates. In truth this is a major exaggeration, but that is the reality.

    Usually the complaints are at their worst after the first few days. When you wait for 3 weeks, and have seen no one in the medical field at all during those 3 weeks, it makes it very difficult to convince a jury that you have much in the way of injuries. If the property damage is significant, then you are much better off in trying to prove your injuries. But if the property damage to your car, and the other car, are minimal, and you have seen no one in the medical field for 3 week, then you...

    Yes you should get enough money. You need to make sure what your injuries are. It is not a good idea to settle too early, if you have personal injuries. If you have complaints, it is important that you see a doctor, and document your injuries and complaints. Waiting too long, or having large gaps in treatment cause problems in these kinds of cases. You need to make sure that there is enough coverage in the way of insurance. If the defendant does not have enough, then you need to see if...

    You probably should talk to an attorney. There is something missing here in the facts. It is possible that the other vehicle driver was an excluded driver, and therefore no coverage. In that event you may need to pursue an uninsured motorist claim against your own insurance company

    As long as you gave him permission, and he does not live with you (if there was a resident relative exclusion in your policy), then there should be coverage for him, and the accident. THe errand issue is for purposes of determining if there was some responsibility by another entity. For example, if he was running an errand for a business, that business may have some responsibility. I think the ilnsurance company is looking into course and scope issues, and wants to make sure who is the...

    Since you were insured, you should turn this over to your insurance company right away, and they will handle the matter. Even though the people are "illegal immagrants" , and are involved in an accident, the law still allows for them to recover for the injuries they received. However, if they have any lost income claims, they will only be able to recover what they would have earned, as if they were working in Mexcio, or the country that they are from. Make sure that you have the name of the...

    You should advise your insurance company right away, and make sure you document that they have received the papers that you got from the court. Your insurance company should defend you in the lawsuit that apparently has been filed against you.

    The defendant is entitled to take your deposition, even if they are totally at fault. THey also want to know about your injuries, and what kind of witness you make. The better the witness, the more concerned the defendant will be. If you filed suit 1.5 years ago, in general your case should have gone to trial by now. Dragging their feet on paying, depends on how much you are asking to resolve your case. It also depends on how much information they have. The less they have the harder it is...

    As you have explained, you rear ended a vehicle that made a quick stop in front of you, due to a red light. I think you would have a very difficult time defending this case. I would tell the "bill collector" not to call you any more. What is the bill for. I am surprised that there is a bill collector involved. Not having any insurance is a problem. Not knowing what the bill is for, also makes it difficult to comment on. Depending on what the bill is for, you may be able to negotiate your...
