    See an attorney immediately due to the government notice timelines. Find someone who has experience dealing with government entities. These cases can be difficult so interview plenty of attorneys to assure yourself that you have found someone competent.

    Jason’s Answer

    Mr. Lundeen is correct. You should have nothing to worry about. Turn the claim over to the insurance company.

  • Hire attorney or handle myself?

    I was hit by a drunk driver 2 weeks ago. My car was totaled. Police had been chasing the driver so were on the scene of the accident. I was taken to ER by ambulance; no major injuries, but I continue to have side and back pain. My laptop and r...

    Jason’s Answer

    There are many cases that an individual can handle on their own. Soft tissue cases with no permanent injury are perfect examples of cases that I think claimants can handle.

    However, there are huge advantages to having an attorney handle your claim. The first is that the attorney can maximize what you receive. He or she knows the standard arguments from insurance companies and knows how to rebut them. You may not know how to do this.

    An attorney can also try to get you full value for your property damage. The insurance company may devalue and only other you the present value of the destroyed items.

    The attorney will also be able to make a better argument for pain and suffering than a non attorney. This is simply because attorneys understand the law and how to massage the concept better than a non-attorney.

    Also, in a case like this, the attorney may be able to get you punitive damages due to the fact that indsividual was drunk. Additionally, many attorneys will maximize the amount of recovery you get by negotiating payment with the medical providers down. This is something that you will probably not be able to dp.

    You should concentrate on making yourself better. Your attoreny is trying to take the route that he believes is most prudent. If you do not believe that it is in your best interests, then get the medical work done that you need.

  • Is there a law in NC that says if my child is in an auto accident and she receives more than $5,000 the courts will set it aside

    my child was in an auto accident and her settlement is 6500, i am hearing since it is more than 5000 that by nc law the courts have to set it aside until she reaches 18

    Jason’s Answer

    In California, where I practice, the law is that any settlement for a minor over $ 5,000.00 is subject to court approval. The court will generally order a percentage of the money to be set aside in an interest bearing locked account. Any funds to be removed from that account are subject to court approval.

    Jason’s Answer

    In order to present a cause of action for something like this, you will need to be able to prove any damages that you suffered as a result. A case like this can be called a products liability case and one of the elements to prove at trial are your damages. Here, it is not clear what they are. You stated that you were not injured as a result of the airbags going off so there may not be any case.

    Jason’s Answer

    You may be subject to a fine for the bridge toll as well as a violation of the car pool lane. I believe that the license plates are recorded for these violations.

    Jason’s Answer

    The laws regarding on call employment vary from state to state. Non-exempt employees, such as yourself, must be paid for standby time when the time is controlled. However, there is case law on point for California that says your employer may not be required to pay you. In one case, a police officer was not entitled to compensation though required to carry a pager, avoid alcohol and respond within 10 minutes. Consult with a labor lawyer in Georgia.

  • How to find the name of landlord?

    I want the name and address of landlord.

    Jason’s Answer

    Also, you can go to the County property records or where the property tax is filed and do a deed search under the address where you live. This is a public record and some counties have this information on line.

  • If I anonymously put an offensive bumper sticker on my ex's car without their permission but it was obvious it was me....

    Can they get me into trouble? The sticker could be removed with time and no actual damage is done aside from the embarassment caused by having on the car in the first place. Just a hypothetical.

    Jason’s Answer

    Yes you can get in trouble. This was a crime. You committed vandalism, as I am sure you already know. Also, there could be civil remedies available to her as well for the embarassment she suffered as well as her time, money and effort in removing the sticker.
