    Hire an attorney especially given the fact that your injuries do not automatically vault the serious injury threshold.

    Craig’s Answer

    Your friend should be discussing this with her attorney. The insurance company is going to look for every opportunity to minimize its exposure. That being said, your friend not receiving needed medical care may work against her. I'm not sure what disability agency you are referring to but I think her attorney is the one that should be addressing the issues raised.

  • If I ammend a. Verified complaint does it need to be verified again?

    I'm ammending my original complaint changing it from being under DRl 170(7) to DRL 170(1) with a request for a jury trial. Does this amended complaint need to be "verified" and if so what is required to do that?

    Craig’s Answer

    If the original pleading required a verification then the amended complaint requires one as well. The same form verification can be used, it just has to indicate you are verifying an amended pleading.

  • Adjuster reviews a medical package a attorney sent to him & they match the no fault medical record.

    Will the adjuster next move be to put a value on injured claims?, also do attorneys consider Nationwide insurance company to be the hardest company to negotiate settlement claims.

    Craig’s Answer

    • Selected as best answer

    The adjuster will seek authority to resolve the case. The decision to make an offer or deny the claim is generally done by a manager or supervisor. The offer or denial will then be transmitted to your attorney. Speaking for myself, Nationwide is not the most difficult.

  • How do you notify the Court that Appellant did not supply it with an accurate and full copy of the record? What can we do?

    Adversary filed a brief, and record (perfection of appeal). Record includes exhibits from previous submissions by adversary, and attached exhibits to those submissions, but only includes some of our submissions with none of the exhibits that were ...

    Craig’s Answer

    The record on appeal should only contain those documents the lower court considered in arriving at its decision. If it was not a joint record which was approved, then you should be able to correct the omission. Assuming you have no attorney helping you, contact the clerk's office at the department where the appeal was filed. In most instances, they are very helpful.
