I'm so sorry that this happened to you. Why don't you reach out to another attorney to discuss the matter further? Not all lawyers will view the same case in the same way, so it may just be a matter of finding the right attorney for your claim. (Even if you don't find a lawyer willing to handle your case, you can at least get some clarification on why the at-fault driver's insurance could pose a problem and what you can do about the letters you're receiving.) You should look for an attorney with experience handling car accident claims, particularly in the Newark area. The Find a Lawyer tool here on Avvo is a great resource to help you get started. Best of luck with your recovery and with the case.See question
Want to provide as much prexsting injury info to be honest with adjester,had 3 accidents in 11 years and new injury summer of 2016. trying not to overwelm adjester just what is needed since they will find out anyway. Thanx to
First, I'm so sorry to hear that you've been involved in all of these accidents. The fact that you have pre-existing injuries makes this case more complex, because it gives the adjuster more opportunity to decrease the value of your claim by arguing that you sustained these injuries in a previous accident. This is definitely not fair to you, but unfortunately, it's how things work in the insurance industry. I understand that you want to keep things simple and candid, but having worked in the legal industry for decades, I also know that insurance companies take advantage of claimants who speak candidly with them and may even twist your words. You shouldn't give the insurer any more information than is absolutely necessary. It would be in your best interests to talk this situation over with a Newark accident attorney before speaking with the adjuster so you understand your legal rights and options. Most of us offer free consultations and handle claims on a no-win, no-fee basis, so it won't cost you anything to discuss the situation with a lawyer or even to hire an attorney to represent you. Having a lawyer on your side really is the only way to get the full amount of money you deserve for this injury (and research shows that attorneys get their clients a great deal more money than claimants without a lawyer get for themselves), so I hope you reconsider your decision to deal with this on your own and choose to talk it over with a lawyer. Best of luck with your recovery and with the case.See question

I'm sorry to hear about your injury. Yes, based on the limited information you were able to include in this short post, it sounds like it would be worth at least discussing the situation with a lawyer at this point. Most of us offer free consultations and handle claims on a no-win, no-fee basis, so it won't cost you anything upfront to speak with an attorney or even to hire a lawyer. Research shows that attorneys get their clients a great deal more money than unrepresented claimants get for themselves -- which means the right lawyer can get you significantly more compensation for your claim, even after you subtract the cost of attorneys' fees. Some disc injuries require injections or surgeries and some can even have permanent consequences, so please treat this as the potentially significant injury that it is and get the follow up care your doctor recommends. One thing you should know is that the sooner you get in touch with an attorney about this situation, the better. I hope this information helps and that you're able to make the best possible recovery. Good luck with the injury and with your claim.See question

I'm really sorry that this happened to you. I understand how unfair it is when someone else causes the accident, and you're the one stuck with the consequences. As other reponses have addressed, you may be able to get your own auto insurance company to pay for the repairs, but this would be through your collision coverage rather than your underinsured motorist's coverage (unfortunately, you will still have to pay a deductible). Your concern about your rates going up is actually a very common one. Auto insurance rate increases are typically based on accidents and driving history, rather than claims, so please don't let this concern deter you from getting your car back in working order. If you were injured, which often is the case when a car is damaged this significantly, please see a doctor (your auto insurance should pay for the medical costs, minus your deductible and copay) and speak with a lawyer who handles car accident claims (this shouldn't cost you anything, since most of us offer free consultations). Some of the injuries people commonly suffer in car accidents get worse in the weeks after the collision, so don't assume that any remaining aches and pains you're still feeling will go away on their own. While hiring a lawyer might not be feasible or practical if your situation only involves property damage, it is very important for cases that involve an injury (and some personal injury attorneys will assist with the property damage aspect of the claim as a courtesty to their clients). I hope this information helps and that you're able to get things back on track. Good luck.See question
The ones that have contacted me only deal with juveniles, so I need a lawyer who handles adult cases which caused (gynecomastia) (male breast)
I'm sorry to hear that this happened to you, and that you're having trouble finding someone to represent you. You can use the Find a Lawyer tool here on Avvo to search for attorneys who handle cases involving defective and dangerous products as well as medical malpractice. You could also use Google or another search engine to look for attorneys who handle Rispderdal injury cases specifically. It might take some time to find the lawyer who is the right fit for you, but most of us do offer free consultations, so it won't cost you anything. Many attorneys are often willing to discuss at least the basics (including your concern that the attorney handles adult cases and not just juvenile cases) over the phone, so you don't have the hassle of visiting an office just to find out the lawyer wouldn't take your case anyway. I hope you're able to find the help you need. Best of luck.See question

I'm sorry to hear about your son's injury. Why don't you discuss this matter in more detail with an attorney who has experience handling premises liability and slip and fall claims? Most of us offer free consultations and can help people in situations like yours understand their legal rights and options. It can certainly be awkward to pursue a case against a friend, but you should be aware that most attorneys seek compensation through homeowner's insurance coverage in a situation like this, rather than seeking money from the individual personally. Hopefully, the cut won't leave a scar, or at least not a severe one, and you won't need to pursue a claim. However, as you said, it's possible that your son might have to live with a very visible scar from this event for the rest of his life. It's worth at least discussing the situation with an attorney so you know what options your family has. I hope this information helps and that your son's wound heals okay. Please make sure you're getting him any follow-up care he needs. Good luck.See question
My friend was cleared from Hackensack Medical Center being a couple months pregnant 2 hours later the baby premature hanging out of her and rushed to another hospital and lost the baby due to miscarriage is there a lawsuit there
I'm so sorry for your friend's loss. It would be a good idea for her to take the time to speak with a medical malpractice attorney privately about this matter. She may have a case, but a lawyer would need more details to say for sure or to help her figure out the next steps she needs to take. One thing she should know is that talking to an attorney shouldn't cost her anything. Most of us offer free consultations, and if she does have a case, would handle the claim on a no-win, no-fee basis. Again, I'm sorry for what your friend is going through. I hope speaking with an attorney can help her get some answers about how this happened.See question

I am so very sorry for your loss. You may have a case, but to know for sure, an attorney would need more details than you were able to include in this brief post. There are such things as failure to diagnose stroke and failure to diagnose heart attack claims. These are cases against doctors whose failures to take certain precautions are considered deviations from the standard of care (or to put it more simply, from what other doctors would have done in the same situation). To find out if your family has a claim along similar lines, you will need to speak with an attorney privately. Most of us offer free consultations, so please don't let anything discourage you from at least talking to a lawyer about this situation. I hope this information helps and that your family is able to get some answers.See question

I am so, so sorry for the sudden loss of your mother. Sometimes, when a patient has been under a doctor's care for some time and is diagnosed with late stage cancer, the situation may offer the grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit. An attorney would need to know the complete details, and to review your mother's medical records, to determine if this is the case in your situation. What you can do now is reach out to a lawyer who has experience handling failure to diagnose cancer or delayed cancer diagnosis cases in NJ. Most of us will give you a free consultation and, once we have enough information, can help you understand who may re responsible for your loss. Again, I really am sorry, and I hope your family is able to get some answers and some closure.See question
I was in an accident today. I was hit in the front passenger side by an unregistered vehicle. Police towed the car, but I'm not sure how this is gonna play out.
I'm sorry that this happened to you. Precisely what happens after an accident can vary from one situation to another. That said, there are a few things you should consider. Depending on who is at fault and what insurance coverage is available, you may have the option to go through either the other driver's insurance or your own auto insurance to get the property damage paid for. There are benefits and drawbacks to both of these options (and keep in mind that you may not have both options available to you -- if, for example, the other driver is uninsured, or if you don't have the right kind of coverage). If you were injured, it would typically be your own auto insurance company that is responsible for paying for your medical expenses, though you would have to pay a deductible and copays as well (again, this isn't the case for every situation -- you may have made an insurance choice that means your health insurer, not your auto insurer, pays for the medical expenses). Basically, car accidents can get more complicated than they initialy seem. If you were hurt, it would be a good idea for you to contact a New Jersey car accident lawyer to not just explain how things are likely to play out given the facts of your situation, but also to represent you and fight for the maximum compensation you deserve. (One thing you should know is that most of us do offer free consultations, so it shouldn't cost you anything to speak with a lawyer.) I hope this information helps. Good luck.See question
