    I agree with what was advised by these two attorneys; however, if ultimately towards the end of the case, your insurance company does not handle your case in "good faith" under your insurance policy and if your own insurance company leaves you open to personal financial liability outside your insurance policy limits, you will definitely want to consult with your own private counsel. In addition, the plaintiff's attorney in this case that has been filed against you, may end up representing you...

    You ought to ask your attorney these questions. The issue I see is if there is insurance coverage that will not satisfy both of your claims because one of you has injuries that exceed the insurance coverage available, then there may be a conflict of interest. It may be better to have two separate lawyers handling the cases so both of you are best represented. However, many attorneys can represent multiple claimants in a vehicle because there is adequate insurance and the claimants interests...

    Consult with a local and experienced personal injury attorney about your case and your questions. Assuming you still can bring a claim and you have not passed the Texas Statute of Limitations to bring a claim, you will likely obtain a lot more compensation with an attorney. Talk to an attorney before you do anything else. Stop talking to the insurance companies. You will prejudice your case. Mr. Tucker is licensed to practice law in Washington and Kentucky.

    Slip and fall cases are some of the most challenging cases because the premises owners are protected and will typically deny any responsibilities. If you have significant injuries, you should consult with a local personal injury attorney who specializes in slip and fall cases. The key to a slip and fall case is whether the premises owner had notice of the dangerous condition before you fell or in the alternative, the premises owner reasonably should have known of the dangerous condition.

    Yes, your attorney can do this. Do not represent yourself. You will not obtain a reasonable resolution of your case. Like many of the local attorneys graciously offered, feel free to contact me at 206-790-5842 and I can review your case for you and what may be the best next step. There is no charge for the consultation. I highly recommend that you find another personal injury attorney in Seattle or Tacoma to take on your case. The new attorney should be able to serve the summons and complaint...

    Yes, you have every right to your file since it is your property. I would consult with your current attorney or another attorney who handles legal malpractice cases to obtain your files from your first attorney.

    I'm assuming you and your wife are insured. If so, your wife needs to report the accident to your insurance co. and your insurance will defend. That is why you and your wife paid premiums for our auto insurance. Your insurance will defend your wife as well.

    Unfortunately, it is very difficult to recover from someone's personal assets if there is no insurance. You should ask your attorneys if they conducted an asset check. If the dog owner has assets, then you may want to consult with a personal injury attorney who would be willing to take your case and pursue the dog owners personal assets. If there dog owner has no home owners insurance it is likely they don't own their home and likely they have limited liquid assets. So you have some tough...
