    WHETHER YOU SUE OR SETTLE DEPENDS ON THE FACTS OF YOUR CASE AND ON THE AMOUNT AVAILABLE AS INSURANCE. YOUR CASE SEEMS TO BE A SERIOUS TYPE AND I SUGGEST YOU HIRE A PI ATTORNEY TO ADVISE YOU. BEST OF LUCK.

    Hit by a PG & E truck? Whether you have a great case depends on your personal injuries, the length of treatment, the severity of your injuries, your pain and suffering, your diminished quality of life, your mental distress, your loss of consortium etc., etc. etc. No personal injury attorney could give you a flat statement without meeting with you and analyzing your case. Better get a PI lawyer if your personal property and medicals are mounting up. One final remark to you and all posters.....

    In the surface , it appears like a malpractice case. However, you said that a year ago you stopped following up with the lawyer. It is entirely possible that this attorney tried to communicate with you and since you were unavailable , he sent your correspondence asking you to contact him but which you did not open, or saw or were not able to see because of your illness, therefore, if none of the above happened, then it is possible that the attorney dropped the ball. Have a talk with your...

    It happens all the time. First you offer a small amount to settle your medical bills under the assumption that the recovery will be X $'s, and then the doctor finds out there is more, so you have to pay more. However, your attorney should explain it to you. Best of luck.

    Most definitely. You have a very serious case. Do not wait one second. Normally, you would need to retain a pedestrian attorney. You can call me without any obligation. Without an attorney, you run the risk of being swept under the rug by the insurance company adjuster. Do not talk to them anymore. Best of luck.

  6. In a $250k + personal injury, why would an attorney delay filing a lawsuit as opposed to filing immediately after med treatment?

    Each case is different and the strategies are applied to the facts of the case. In a high medical expenses case, your lawyer may be analyzing all the facts and trying to ascertain whether there is more coverage under the spectrum. Nowadays, an operation and treatment can run you over $350,000.00, so $250k may be a little short. Why sue if you could settle out of court or present a policy demands limit, which if not accepted could theoretically open up the policy. All these strategies are...

    I agree with most of my colleagues who have correctly indicated that you may not be eligible for recovery of any wrongful death cause of action. However, any children of your fiancee or parents or siblings may be eligible to file a wrongful death cause of action. You may help by gathering all pertinent information regarding your fiancee. First, make sure you help your fiancee's immediate heira request the police report. Second, gather all financial information regarding his income taxes...

    Hopefully, she is feeling better. Once she recovers, she should contact a criminal attorney to dispute the ticket. You could be a witness , also there is a possibility that the doctor took a blood sample, so that evidence needs to be examined. Best of luck.

    i agree with most of my colleagues. Insurance companies do not go out of their way to answer phone calls from potential claimants. On the contrary, they transfer you three or four times and hope that you get disconnected or wait for 15 to 20 minutes before someone answers the phone. Given your medical bills, do not do this case alone. Hire a local lawyer. Happy Thanksgiving and best of luck.
