  • Can I file a claim against their homeowner's insurance?

    When I answered an ad for a table, my leg buckled while climbing the steps to the seller's porch. I fell backward hitting my tailbone and slamming my head against paving stones. I also sustained a compression fracture to my left wrist. All this re...

    Adam’s Answer

    I agree with attorney Deborah Barron's answer. To expand, and not duplicate her answer, it sounds like you have not yet tried to apply for social security disability. You should seek out a social security disability lawyer. You should also check and see if you qualify for any spousal benefits from your husband's social security. If there was some defect in the property (did the stair lack a rail, were the steps not up to Code, etc., then you may have a personal injury case. Seek the services of a personal injury lawyer immediately. Please read the disclaimer at the bottom of this page. Good luck to you. Adam Sorrells, Chico Injury Lawyer.

    Adam’s Answer

    To answer this question directly, and without re-stating what was said by the other contributors, the answer to your question is "YES, submit the claim". Do whatever is necessary to get the claim timely filed. To answer part 2 of your question regarding what box to check on the issue of below or above $10,000, check above. You need to consult with a lawyer immediately. If you can do that and have them timely submit the claim, so much the better. No matter what, make sure a timely claim is submitted and also see a lawyer immediately. Good luck. Please see disclaimer at bottom. Adam Sorrells, Injury Lawyer Chico.

  • I let a friend borrow my car and he had an accident and neither one of us have insurance Will I still lose my driver license ?

    I let a friend borrow my car and he had an accident and neither one of us have insurance Will I still lose my driver license even if I was not the person driving ?

    Adam’s Answer

    Mr. Bizunis provided an excellent and thoughtful response. If the authorities were planning to try and take your license, you likely would have been served with some paper-work by now (but no promises). As a practical matter, most police are too busy to issue tickets beyond issuing one to your friend who was driving. You may be esposed to civil liability. I wish you the best of luck.

    Adam’s Answer

    I agree with the other lawyers. You need to hire a workers compensation lawyer immediately. It is hard to tell based on the facts you provided exactly why your TD was stopped. Sometimes if they claim you stopped treatment, you can simply go back to your doctor, and if you are still disabled, your TD will re-start. However, I am speculating (never a good idea). Hire a lawyer right away (no charge unless there is a recovery) and have him/her figure this out. Good luck. Adam Sorrells, injury Lawyer in Chico.

    Adam’s Answer

    Yes, you have the right to ask for reimbursement. You also have the right to pursue the full value of your claims, including pain and suffering, disfigurement, etc. As stated by the other lawyers, contact a good personal injury lawyer immediately, take photos of your injuries.

  • What do i do now ? i was hit by a car on my bike and the car ran off , the police got her and arrested her

    i have medical bills and her car insurance are dragging there feet to take care of me

    Adam’s Answer

    In response to your question, what do I do now, here is a quick response. Call a personal injury lawyer in Santa Cruz right away. Do not delay. Do not speak to the at-fault insurance company. Check your car insurance and seei if you have medical payment coverage and if it will apply to this situation. Document your case with photos of your bike, injuries, the scene, etc. Contact the local Victim Witness office. They will likely pay your medical bills for you, and then expect repayment if your case settles. If you have health insurance, Medi-Cal, etc., you can use those sources as well. That should get you started. Do not delay, see a lawyer immediately.

    Adam’s Answer

    My advice is to see a personal injury lawyer immediately. You may have a claim against both the hotel, the gues who flooded the room, and maybe others. You should not try to handle this yourself. If you have health insurance, you may be able to use health insurance, Medi-Cal, Madi-Care, or other source to pay for medical bills. Try to get all needed medical treatment. GOOD LUCK.

  • Do I need an personal injury attorney?

    I tripped over a pallet that was in the aisle/floor in Safeway. When I advised a stock employee of the trip and warned of the danger of the location of the pallet he appeared unconcerned or interested. I made a written statement at the front desk....

    Adam’s Answer

    Your options are to do nothing, sign the release and end your case for $25.00 or contact a lawyer. My advice is to contact a personal lawyer, and then follow his/her advice. For example, there may be surveillance footage, if so it could help and must be preserved. Pallett cases are better than the average trip and fall case. Keep seeking treatment with a doctor as long as needed. Adhere strictly to all time periods (see disclaimer herein).

  • I paid a BK lawyer to file BK for me. he has done nothing at all. he wont refund my money.

    he has never called me re the status of my case and it is almost a year old. i want to sue him for my money back.

    Adam’s Answer

    Make a written demand for a status and return of your money. Save a copy of the letter and send the letter certified. Give the lawyer 10 days to respond. If no response, file a complaint with the State Bar of CA. GOOD LUCK.
