Car Accident on July 15th... Can I take him to the hospital now if he is experiencing pain?
Typically, if an injury victim presents for medical care within 10 days or 2 weeks, it will not be a problem. It will depend in part on insurance coverage and applicable State laws. Rather than guess about the legal rights of your son, set up a free consultation with a local personal injury attorney. Good luck.See question
Car accident settlement
This can happen. Ask your attorney for a meeting or to send you an e-mail with an itemization of the settlement, attorney fees, costs, and medical bills. Ask which bills are pending and what needs to be confirmed. Typically, attorneys are eager to close out files and move on with other work. Hopefully, this matter gets resolved on your behalf sooner versus later. Good luck.See question

In the State of Florida, a person has 4 years to formally pursue a legal case or lawsuit for damages. You did not state when the crash took place but I will assume that it was recent. If she has your information, she can still pursue a case assuming it is timely pursued and filed.See question
My house had water damage due to the sudden pipe broken under the concrete. My home insurance pays for the water damage recovery but deny the plumbing repair? Does it make sense?

I was pulled over for speeding a couple weeks after getting a car from my dad. It's in his name. Unfortunately the car has no insurance. I lied to the police officer and told him I couldn't find my insurance card. So now I have to pay a $120 fine ...
In many traffic court appearances, the judge or hearing officer will show some leniency but does not have to. You may be fine without an attorney. However, if the judge is having a bad day and does not like the fact that you misrepresented your insurance situation to a police officer, the judge could issue a ruling that is not favorable to you. It will be a judgment call on your part. If you get it done without an attorney, then you saved the money. However, if things go another direction, you may have wished you hired one. You probably can discuss the situation with some local traffic citation attorneys to get advice as to your legal rights and recommended course of action. Good luck.See question

It appears that you have a slip and fall case or matter pending. You asked your attorney for updates, I assume that you are seeking additional information and updates from your attorney. You are entitled to timely and periodic updates from the attorney. The question you posed may have been cut off for some reason so you may want to add to your post.See question
I am going into surgery for an accident that was the other drivers fault and i just found out my husband will be getting laid off the same month. I will have state disability but that will be our only family income
You asked an excellent question. A case can settle at any time including in the middle of trial. If the defendant / insurance company is prepared to make you a fair offer prior to surgery or prior to trial, the case can be resolved. There are also companies who will give clients a "Cash Advance" on a case but the pay back rates and fees are quite high. You should discuss these matters with your attorney. Good luck with your case.See question

Some medical providers are better and more efficient than others about resolving medical bills and liens. Some are also more understanding than others in the amount that the liens and bills are reduced. Ask your attorney to send you the documentation sent to and received from the medical providers as to the reductions. Hopefully, the liens / bills will be reduced as soon as possible and practical.

I hit someone in the rear and totaled her car. She has hired an atty who wants the limits of liability from my insurance co. If her injuries exceed 300,000 can they sue for my house. If so should I quick claim deed it to my daughter in law
You asked an excellent questions. In most cases, the matter is resolved within the applicable policy limits. At times, the insurance company will refuse to pay out what is demanded and this can, in turn, lead to a trial. Contact a local attorney to represent your interests in a limited matter. Have your attorney put some pressure on the insurance company to make sure that the insurance company limits your personal financial exposure. While many people avoid hiring a personal attorney, it could be the best move you make to protect your interests. Good luck.See question
