  • My boyfriend got into a car accident, which was not his fault! Has a suspended license and fled the scene. What should he do?

    Someone hit him and he fled the scene and left the car on the side of the road. I got a call from an offcer because it is under my name. He never drove my car ever. The police wants to exchange information between him and the other guy but the off...

    There are three issues here: one is driving with a suspended license, second issue is leaving the scene of an accident and third, his rear end collision. The first two are potential criminal charges. The third is a civil matter. Your car is probably at the impound and you should call the police to go get your car. You may have to pay towing and storage charges. Best of luck.

  • I was rear ended by a driver who was deemed at fault for property settlement but somehow denying fault for personal injury claim

    I have retained a PI attorney. During her depo she admitted that she was looking for a location she hadn't been to before and was looking ahead to the next street sign when she hit me. She was very evasive about her phone she had with her, saying ...

    Manuel’s Answer

    iF YOU GOT REARENDED, THERE IS A PRESUMPTION OF LIABILITY ON THE PART OF THE DEFENDANT. THAT MEANS THAT THE OTHER DRIVER IS AT FAULT FOR NEGLIGENTLY REARENDING YOUR CAR. IF THE OTHER DRIVER ALREADY ADMITEED THAT FACT AT HER DEPOSITION, THEN YOUR LAWYER WOULD BE MORE CONCERNED ABOUT GETTING YOU THE BEST SETTLEMENT POSSIBLE FOR YOUR CASE RATHER THAN CONCENTRATING ON CELL PHONE RECORDS. DO NOT SECOND GUESS YOUR LAWYER AND LET HIM DO HIS JOB. THAT IS WHY YOU HIRED HIM IN THE FIRST PLACE. BEST OF LUCK.

    THERE IS NO HURRY. TALK TO AN EXPERIENCED AUTO ACCIDENT ATTORNEY IN CALIFORNIA. WHAT SEEMS A NOT SUBSTANTIAL INJURY RIGHT NOW MAY BE A PAINFUL EXPERIENCE LATER ON. I HAVE A CLIENT THAT GOT INTO A CAR ACCIDENT LAST WEEK AND REFUSED TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL. THREE DAYS LATER THE CLIENT COULD NOT RAISE HER ARM AND HER KNEE AND LOWER BACK HURT SO MUCH THAT SHE HAS HAD TO FILE FOR WORKERS COMPENSATION. SOMETIMES WE VALUE OUR POSSESSIONS MORE THAN OUR BODIES. SO THE MORAL IS TAKE YOUR TIME , GET YOURSELF THORIUGHLY CHECKED OUT AND IF THERE IS NOTHING BOTHERING YOU AFTER 30 DAYS. THEN GO AHEAD AND SETTLE YOUR PROPERTY CLAIM DAMAGE. BEST OF LUCK

    I'm from Texas and I was attending school in California for the summer. Another driver ran a stop sign and totaled my vehicle when my wife and two kids(4 and 14months) were in the car. The insurance company(AAA) did not inform us that my children'...

    Manuel’s Answer

    iF YOU OR ANY MEMBER OF YOUR FAMILY WAS HURT, I URGE TO CONTACT A PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY. THE INSURANCE COMPANY IS NOT IN THE BUSINESS OF ADVISING YOU ABOUT YOUR CLAIM. THEY CARE ONLY ABOUT PAYING THE LEAST AMOUNT OF MONEY AND PROTECT YTHEIR CLIENTS ONLY. MOST ATTORNEY DO NOT WORK ON PROPERTY SETTLEMENTS BECAUSE IT IS NOT ECONOMICAL, BUT IF YOU HAVE INJURIES YOUR ATTORNEY CAN HELP. BEST OF LUCK.

  • Do I need an attorney?

    I work for a government agency. For several years we have been asking for testing of our office(1970's modular)for mold due to employees feeling like they have the flu and allergies when in the building. Management ignored our requests. Recently w...

    Manuel’s Answer

    Having faced a similar issue when I used to work for the government, this is what I suggest. Find out from the financial manager for your office whether the building is rented or not. If it is rented then run to a PI lawyer that does mold cases and get advice right away. If the building is government owned, then I am afraid you have a plain vanilla Workers Comp case. If the issue is one against a third party you may still need to comply with the Tort Liability Act and must provide notice to your Employer. Best of luck.

  • In car accident case, what is expected of the attorney?

    Was in accident that was 80% other party's fault. Hired attorney for bodily injuries. Filled out forms but have not heard back from attorney in a couple of weeks. What is standard communication protocol between client and attorney? Should he discu...

    Manuel’s Answer

    Good communications with your attorney is important. Call your lawyer and ask for an appointment to meet with him. Two weeks is a reasonable time to wait. Ask again if you could meet with him to discuss your case. It could also be a telephone conversation. Nothing really happens for a couple of months. You need to concentrate on going to your doctor and recovering from your injuries. At his stage, follow your doctor's advice. And, do not worry. When the treatment is finished, your lawyer will evaluate your case and suggest a number that will reflect your hospital bills, your out of pocket expenses, and your past and future income loss , if any. Best of luck.

    Manuel’s Answer

    You need to see a personal injury lawyer right away and file a Claim against the municipality within sis months of the accident. The claim will be most likely denied which will necessitate a filing in the Superior court for the County where you live. Best of luck.
