  • In the state of South Carolina, is it legal for me to talk to older guys? I am 17. The oldest i talk to is 22.

    I have more guy friends than girls because having girl friends come with a lot of drama. My mom got the cops involved now, and i want to know is it legal first? Its really stupid but i don't want to get any of my friends in trouble.

    Glenn’s Answer

    I agree with the above. Talking, hanging around etc. is not illegal.

  • What are the options available to me if the settlement amount is more than the policy limit for an individual.

    Few years back I was involved in a minor auto accident. The other party did not complain about injury that time. After more than a year the other party claimed to my insurance a big amount, which is much more than the policy limit for an individua...

    Glenn’s Answer

    Definitely make sure your insurance company is defending you. Also, have a conversation with your attorney about the injuries claimed by the plaintiff and your potential exposure. If the inability to settle within your policy limits is the fault of your insurer, you should also get a second opinion from another attorney. It is important to make sure that the carrier does not needlessly expose you to excess liability (above your policy limits).

  • Reckless motorcyclist crashed into us and died. His estate is bringing claim. Do we need defense or let our insurance handle it?

    My wife was turning left across traffic. She waited for the oncoming lanes to clear. The motorcyclist had turned one block away, accelerated at an extreme rate, and hit the passenger side of her car. She never saw him. Our insurance company invest...

    Glenn’s Answer

    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 you would be to meet with your defense attornehy (as provided by your insurance company). He should be able to explain your rights and responsibilities. However, be very careful with "staff counsel" like GEICO and some others have, and, you must also be critical of what your insurance defense attorney tells you. If you do not feel comfortable with the information provided by the attorney, it is certainly worthwhile to retain an independent attorney. The reason I say this is because you must look out for your own best interests. All due respect to the insurance defense bar, if an insurance company is calling the shots, they may be more interested in their company's best interest, not yours. Good luck.

  • A question for Personal Injury Attorneys dealing with expert witnesses?

    Do medical experts have to create a report for their diagnosis. The issue is that we are going to trial. One of the experts which the defendant may call has not created an expert report for his medical diagnosis of our client. The policy limits...

    Glenn’s Answer

    I agree with the other posters. There probably would not be a requirement that the expert create a report. I think your two most important issues are (1) what will be the substance of the expert's testimony--if there is no report, you should probably depose the expert so that you can prepare rebuttals from your experts, etc.; and (2) admissibility, meaning how will the defense try to introduce the opinion at trial? If live testimony with proper foundation, I dont see how you can demand a report ahead of time. If they want to introduce something written, like a report, records, etc., then they must produce it prior to trial (if you requested in in discovery). Just my opinion...

    While the other worker was unprofssional and wrong, the law requires that you have damages if you want to file a civil suit.

  • I have served summons and amended cross-complaint to additional cross-defendant. OC filed Answer for plaintiff.

    The new cross-defendant did not file Answer. Court record shows she is not represented by an attorney or by OC. She is the partner of the partnership I am counter-suing. Is that why she doesn't have to file Answer or have an attorney on record?

    Glenn’s Answer

    The partnership issue is not in her favor, it does not excuse her from answering the complaint. In fact, if you get a default against her you it may result in your obtaining your damages from the other defendant (depending on the "partnership"). You should file your default. However, keep in mind that defaults are pretty easy to set aside.

    Very good advice from the other posters. Before you say anything to the prosecutor, you really need to consult a criminal attorney.

  • New York State Bar Ethical Violation. Is it a violation for an attorney to refuse to send a wage check to a client's attorney?

    I represent a client in Calif. who has a wage claim. The employer's counsel in NY insists on sending wage, expense checks directly to my client and refuses to send them directly to me without getting a letter from my client. In CA, that would ...

    Glenn’s Answer

    Its probably not unethical if its just a check, or, just a check with a transmittal sheet. If theres any other communication, explanation, request for signature, etc. then its probably unethical to send directly to the client. My advice, for what its worth, is to explain to the client what the NY attorney is demanding, and, your concerns about possible improper communication. Have the client sign the letter which the NY attorney demanded and go from there.Be careful about ethics complaints. I would use those sparingly and only where the violation is blaring or has the potential to hurt someone.

    Glenn’s Answer

    Im sorry to say but it sounds like your wife has some liability in this case, i.e., was at fault, or partially at fault depending on the circumstances. If you are struck while in the process of chaning lanes, perhaps the other vehicle was in her blind spot? If so, its just an accident, but its her "fault." notify your insurance company
