    Manuel’s Answer

    No. You cannot sue the insurance company because you do not have a contractual relationship with the other driver's insurance company. You need to sue the driver directly. Best of luck

    Manuel’s Answer

    The accessibility issue is related to the ADA or American Disability Act. However, whether an attorney takes your case is based on the extent of your injuries and your loss wages and permanent disability as a result of the accident. Consult with a PI attorney ASAP. The consultation is free. Best of luck.

  • 1. What can I claim? 2. Should I just sign the papers?

    Manuel’s Answer

    Do not sign any papers until you speak to an attorney. ALso, you do not have to pay $200 to anyone. If you were hurt in an auto accident, there are plenty of personal injury lawyers in the Oakland area that would be glad to speak with you. The consultation is always free. Once you hire your lawyer, he can get you treatment without any upfront payment. You should get yourself treated until your Doctor tells you you are OK. Hope this clarifies your concerns. Best of luck.

  • Can I have my license suspended if my wife got into an accident and I was not in the car?

    We are both listed as title holders.

    Manuel’s Answer

    If the car had no insurance, then you both could be held liable for damages caused to a third party. DMV usually sends a letter asking you to provide a copy of your insurance, if you missed that correspondence, then you have to search for it and fill out the information and return it to DMV. Best of luck.

    Manuel’s Answer

    Es importante que un Abogado lea el contrato y que te lo interprete. Es la unica manera que el te pueda ayudar. Buena suerte.

    You have to consult with a lawyer that is knowledgeable on Truck insurance cases. It seems that there is an interpretation issue. If the insurance company indeed were under a duty to compensate you for your loss, then you may have a bad faith case against the insurance company. Best of luck.

  • Found my wrongful death case with crime and the office of district attorney denied to file the criminal charge. What can I do?

    Manuel’s Answer

    Please receive my condolences for the loss of your son. Having dealt with a few of these types of cases, I need to tell you that you need an experienced wrongful death Attorney to advise you. I can tell you that you do not need criminal charges to file your claim. The fact that your son was killed by a negligent driver is sufficient to start your cause of action. I know that it is too early to think about filing your case, but do not wait too long to meet with a local attorney. There are a lot of issues that need to be discussed between you and your attorney. Best of luck.

  • I was a passnger in a cab last august an was side swiped by a semi truck and the cab company refused to give there insuranceinfo

    And ever since then ive had back an neck problems is there any thing i can do to hold them acountable for the accident

    Manuel’s Answer

    I would be more interested in getting the information about the semi. The semi's insurance policy may be better than the cab's company. Besides, you stated that you got sideswiped by the semi not the cab. I do not see liability on the part of the cab driver. Best of luck.
