    I agree with Mr. Roberts above, Insurance companies have become harder and harder to deal with for soft tissue type injuries. I was a claims adjuster for over 12 years for a major insurance company before I became an attorney. I understand their job perfectly. The majority of personal injury attorneys including myself take their payment out of the settlement they obtain for you. You should not have to pay any upfront fees to the attorney at the beginning of your case. I am in Fresno and would...

    It is always best to list each account with the last four numbers of the account number. You should list any collection agency as well. The key is to make sure you have all your debt listed. And to make sure the addresses are correct. It is always best to have an Attorney when filing for a Bankruptcy--without the right information you may lose property you may have been able to keep. Prices are reasonable these days---you should check before proceeding on your own. Most attorneys, including...

    I understand that when these matters involve a family member we tend to think differently about how to proceed. However, he has insurance for a reason. You need to protect your rights and your daughter's rights. You two are the injured parties. And I believe you need to consult with an attorney as soon as you can.

    I agree with the Attorney answer above. And for everyone else reading this information-this is a clear indicator why having an Attorney when filing for a Bankruptcy is so important. What starts out as simple-may soon be confusing and may actually cost you more to fix than it would have cost you originally.

    Yes, it is best to give the Trustee everything he will be looking for. If you have not filed then you need to explain why. The best rule is- if you know he is going to ask then it is better to provide the documentation along with a letter explaining your situation. When it comes to Bankruptcy more information is always better. I agree with the answer above-when it comes to Bankruptcy you should really have an attorney, I get a lot of calls from people who tried it alone and now have a problem...

    As stated in the answers YOU should not be talking with anyone and your attorney should have made that clear. I too wonder why you would post a question here rather than picking up the phone and asking your attorney. The relationship between you and your attorney should feel comfortable or something is wrong. I hope you discuss this with your attorney and get the issues resolved. Good Luck!

    Yes. Remember, if you owe a bank or credit card company and they have turned over your debt to a collection agency you should list them both. Make use of the Notice Only when appropriate. If it is for the same account and you are just not sure which address to use just take the address off of your most recent statement and you should be fine.
