If you have a lawyer, talk to your lawyer. If you do not, then go to the deposition and truthfully answer the questions you are asked. The lawyers will take it from there and the system will work the case out as it should be.See question
She was hysterically angry with me, pregnant and as I was in my car took what looked to be her own keys and scrat hed a very deep mark down the front, unable to buff away. She is refusing to respond to my text message requesting a cash reparation...
Yes you can. As another poster responded, get two estimates and take her to small claims court where you are not required to have a lawyer. The value of the case is such that you are not likely to find a a lawyer to handle the case on a contingency basis and it would be cost prohibitive to pay an hourly rate for the type of case you are considering.See question
MY HUSBAND MOTHER PASSED AWAY AND HIS AUNT (HIS MOTHERS BILOGICAL SISTER) TOOK HIS MOMS CAR TO ANOTHER STATE, WITHOUT HIS PERMISSION. MY HUSBAND NAME IS ON THE TITLE ALONG WITH HIS MOTHERS. SHE WAS USING THE CAR FOR THE FUNERAL AND AGREED TO RETUR...
No, the aunt cannot take the vehicle. Under the facts you have provided, the Aunt has stolen your husband's vehicle. If your husband does not consent to the aunt being in possession of the vehicle and the aunt refuses to return the vehicle, your husband needs to call the police and report the vehicle as stolen. As another poster has indicated, he also needs to contact the insurance company and report the vehicle stolen.
If there is a bank note or loan on the vehicle, it is also a good idea to contact the bank and inform the bank that the vehicle has been stolen.
Under Florida law, and since he has not taken steps to retrieve the vehicle or report it as stolen, your husband would be liable for any accident caused by the aunt while driving his vehicle.
Finally, once reported as stolen, your husband may be able to take the aunt to court for her theft of the vehicle. It is important that your husband actually ask the aunt to return the vehicle and she refuses to do so.See question

Unless you hire an attorney and pay by the hour, the attorney's contingency fee will be paid from any settlement or recovery. Ultimately, you will likely wind up with a higher net recovery if you retain a local attorney. First, based only on the information you have provided, it sounds like the insurance company is giving you a low offer because you do not have any attorney. Since you are negotiating with them yourself and have not hired an attorney, they also know you don't want to hire an attorney. Do not expect the insurer to make a higher (or much higher) offer unless you obtain counsel. They just won't because they know they don't have to.
Remember, if you hire a good attorney they will likely increase the settlement, perhaps even to the policy limits (always depending upon the facts). Your attorney will also assist you in dealing with paying back your medical bills, and will likely be able to assist in negotiating reduced payments, also ultimately resulting in a higher net recovery to you.
Finally, if you have insurance on your bike (I ride and STRONLGY recommend that you carry BI, Med Pay and UM on your bike), your attorney will be able to ensure that you do not impair your ability to make a claim against your own insurer if you settle with the at fault driver's insurance.See question

Your son should determine if he purchased uninsured motorist insurance when he (hopefully) purchased insurance for the motorcycle. If so, that should cover his damages.See question
from mother was killed in a car accident. if i've already received compensation through the uninsured motorist policies that my mother had through her insurance can I still file for wrongful death Claim.
That is a confusing question. If you already received compensation from the UM carrier, that implies there is no other insurance to pursue.
As I indicated in response to your other question, you really need to consult with an attorney so they can sort out exactly what you have done or will be able to do.See question
my mother was killed in a car accident. She had uninsured motorist policies. She has different automobile policies through different insurance companies. they are nonstacked policies. Can I make a claim through the other insurance companies if she...
My condolences for your loss. The answer to your question really depends on many things, including the different insurance policies you mention.
The first thing you need to do is hire a lawyer or firm experienced in handling wrongful death cases and who will be able to sort out the issues regarding the insurance policies. Many people try to handle claims themselves and ultimately wind up regretting the decision. Even if your goal is to avoid paying attorneys' fees, you are likely to still make a better net recovery (even after payment of attorneys' fees) if you retain a qualified, aggressive attorney who is experienced in handling this type of case.See question
I worked for 6 months, only late one time and my boss stated all the positive work ethics I had but needed someone more like his office manager that was married and had no kids.
Yes; if what you say is accurate and that was the reason for your termination, then (provided your employer is large enough to be subject to the employment laws of Florida, you likely have a case.See question

It sounds as though your employer may be violating some laws in a number of ways.
I would suggest that you and any other co-workers who are unhappy about not being paid for time you have worked go speak with an employment lawyer.See question

Your question raises a multitude of issues which are too variable to even attempt to accurately answer in this forum. There is a very good chance you should be considered an employee. If so, you may very well be entitled to WC or other benefits.
In either event, if you were not at fault in the accident, you have what sounds to be a strong case against the truck that hit you and its operator(s).
You need to speak to a qualified, experienced and aggressive attorney as soon as possible to ensure that you protect your rights and do not become a victim or be harmed a second time.
