  1. Can you make a counter offer if you got hit with a defendant's statutory offer to compromise under CCP Section 998

    Respectfully, I believe that you are putting the proverbial cart before the horse. A 998 offer is no more than a settlement offer with teeth. Whether the teeth bite you depends on whether you get more money at trial than the 998 offer and, if not, whether you can show that the offer was made in bad faith. Of course, you can make your own 998 offer, however remember that if your offer comes before the deadline of their offer, you have rejected their offer. My advice, without knowing any more...

    The previous attorney Adam is quite right about your need to see an attorney right away. I do have some questions though. How old is your daughter and how old is the other child who pushed her? In California, children under seven years of age are not negligent as a matter of law. This means that someone else should of course be supervising them. Important questions are: How was your daughter not accounted for when she did not return to class when the bell rung? Where was the school's person who...

    The first question you should ask is "Do I have confidence in my attorney"? Why did you chose this attorney in the first place? if you chose the attorney because they had a stellar reputation as a fighter and you had the impression that they would leave no stone unturned, then go back to that attorney and ask if the mediator advised why the case may not have the value it should. If you never really had confidence in your attorney, and do not think he or she is a fighter, you may want to speak...

    First of all, i am sorry to learn of your son's brain injuries. It is going to be a long road ahead and I wish you and your family the very best of luck. Next, make sure that you retain the helmet in absolutely the same condition as it was right after the accident. I recommend that you take photos and or video of the helmet and keep it dry and untouched as much as you can. Next, how old was the helmet and what type of helmet was it? Was the helmet more than five years old? The materials inside...

    First of all, only the DA can decide whether to prosecute or not for the break in. How do you know who broke in and that your dog bit them once? If they told you, then you have identified the culprit, but what will that gain you? i recommend that you leave the matter alone unless and until the other party raises the issue. Also, do you have homeowners insurance? Or renters insurance? I would explore that if I were you. Good luck, Claude A. Wyle, esq. Choulos Choulos & Wyle 425 California St....

    You can easily cash out on the estimated amount of the repair to your car. If you have collision coverage, just get an estimate-from a good reputable shop, and present that to your own carrier and ask to cash out. this should not be a problem and will put the money in your pocket quickly. Good luck, Claude

    You should get your child the medical attention he/she needs and go online to learn exactly what type of illness this tainted formula should be causing, and what you can do about it. You should make sure that the doctors and labs know that your child has ingested this specific substance and exactly where it came from. You should go online and find the very best doctor in the State who is on the leading edge for treatment of poisoning of this type and you should preserve any and all samples of...

    Hi, I am Claude Wyle, a partner at Choulos Choulos and Wyle and I hope I can help. She is clearly eligible to make a workers compensation claim, and they will pay all of her medical bills and temporary disability. if she is permanently disabled, she should have a workers compensation specialist help her. I can refer you to an East Bay workers comp attorney if you give me a call or email me. She also has a third party case against the offending driver in Oregon and perhaps a product liability...

    I wish you and your family my most sincere condolences for the loss of your niece. I cannot evaluate liability with just the facts presented, and so will assume that you have a good case. I can say that you need a medical malpractice specialist, not just a regular personal injury attorney. There are very few attorneys who really know what they are doing with medical malpractice. Very few medical malpractice cases are as simple as they seem at first. As to damages, her children would be entitled...

    You are not responsible for any emotional distress under California law. You are responsible for any vet bills and any consequential damages or out of pocket damages in trying to save the pet. You are also responsible for the reasonable value of the pet, which I would say might be the replacement value. I would also fix the fence and try to be as reasonable as possible since this is your neighbor and they have suffered a loss which is, although not huge in the law, very emotionally upsetting...
