    I agree with the other posters. Its been my experience that a $7500 offer from Walmart, especially to a non represented claimant) could mean that they actually have some concern about your case. I generally have experienced what seems like an utter a lack of concern about claims. My (experienced) suspicion is that that Walmart reviewed its surveillance, and probably realizes that it has "exposure" for liability and damages. That being said, and even under those kinds of circumstances, Walmart...

    I agree with the other posters. Consult a personal injury attorney, and, immediately ask the club owner to preserve any video--it may help you with your case.

    I agree with the other posters, you need to talk to your attorney. Im sorry to hear about your physical problems.Are you paying your discovery costs yourself?Also, this is a first party case right? (you are suing your own insurance company). When you talk to your attorney, and I really encourage that you do so, ask if him if you can postpone your deposition until you are more physically able to participate (although you really should try to finish this as soon as you are able). If the insurance...

  4. If a claims adjuster threatens to close their file and then does, does that mean that the insurance company will not negotiate?

    I hear this from adjuster often: "we will close this case." My response is usually that its fine, but, that they will only end up re-opening the case when I make my demand. As long as you are still within the time to make the claim (the Statute of Limitations has not passed) you can always have them re-open the case. If they refuse, then you can file a lawsuit.

  5. I was in a car accident and initially sued beyond policy limits. Now the plaintiff wants the limits.

    I highly recommend that you get a second opinion regarding your policy limits. Consult another attorney. It will probably not cost too much. Dont forget that the insurance company's interests are not necessarily the same as yours. And, dont forget that the attorney is being paid by the insurance company. Good luck

    I agree with the other posters. You need to consult an experienced personal injury attorney. GEICO can be very difficult to deal with. They generally have "staff counsel" so they are not worried about litigation costs. My personal experience has been that they often take positions which can be challenging even for attorneys. Because the injuries are severe, please also take stock of your personal UIM (underinsured motorists) coverage. Best of luck to you, and, best wishes for the recovery of...

    I agree with the other posters. I do think you should put your insurance on notice. Your friend's insurance may want to subrogate against you.

    I agree, I think you should contact a personal injury attorney. You need someone to look into all of the circumstances regarding your father's death.

    I am handling a case very much like this one at the moment. My client was the one making the left turn. he is obviously very shaken up because the morotcyclest died. Generally, there is bias against the left turning vehicle because the vehicle going straight has the right of way. But, we believe that the relative speeds are self evident. The impact was so severe that the motorcyclist must necessarily have been speeding. At least in your case, the police found in your favor. My advice to...

  10. I had a free consultation with a plaintiff personal injury attorney who told me that she would take my case on contingency basis

    Your question is a bit confusing, but, it might be that the confusion is on my part. First, if you are on a contingency agreement, you will not be responsible for any hourly rate, win or lose. I believe in most cases, the hourly rate only applies if you terminate his/her representation of you and he asserts an "attorney's charging lien" on your case. So, I would not be worried about the hourly rate at this point. My other piece of advice would be that you really need to have a conversation...
