  • How can I sue the two people that rear ended me?

    I suffered a cardiac tamponade and fractured spine from this accident.

    Marcus’s Answer

    A lawsuit is initiated by filing a summons and complaint in the county where the accident occurred. You only have two years from the date of the accident to file suit. Once filing suit, the paperwork is then personally served on the two people who rear ended you. After service, the lawsuit process begins (i.e. discovery, case management conference, depositions, etc.). The process can be very difficult for non-lawyers to navigate. I have encounter people who have lost slam dunk cases trying to handle it themselves.

    You should call a personal injury lawyer today to represent you in your case. Most personal injury attorneys, including our firm, offer free consultations. You typically do not have to pay a personal injury attorney unless he collects money for you. Personal injury attorneys charge a percentage of the funds they recover for you, typically 33 1/3 %. Call a personal injury attorney today for a free consultation.

    One additional note, do not speak to the other parties insurance company. They will attempt to get a recorded statement from you. Decline. You are under no obligation to speak to the other side's insurance company. Tell them you are seeking representation and when you choose an attorney the attorney will contact them. With the extent of your injuries, you are potentially entitled to large compensation. Any questions, just ask. Best of luck to you.

  • How to calculate daily rate of pain and suffering in a pedestrian auto accident?

    My toddler daughter was hurt by a car in a parking lot. Thankfully there were no broken bones but he suffered from serious abrasions on her legs. The emergency room bill was a hair over 20K. Her doctor said she would heel in 4-6 weeks. What is a t...

    Marcus’s Answer

    First of all, I am terribly sorry about your toddler's situation. There is nothing more upsetting then seeing a toddler or young child injured. My sympathy goes out to.

    There is no formula for determining pain and suffering. In this case, you would be able to recover your daughter's past medical bills, future medical bills, pain and suffering and any other damages caused by the incident.

    Because our daughter is a minor a minor's compromise must be filed with and approved by the court. Even if you settle the case before filing suit, you will still have to file a minor's compromise. Thus, you will most likely need to hire an attorney. Because your daughter is a minor, most jurisdictions limit attorney fees in minor's cases to 25%.

    It would be in your child's best interest to hire an attorney ASAP. Most personal injury attorneys offer free consultations. Best of luck to you and your daughter. Hope she has a speedy recovery.
