  • Case was settle how long before check arrive

    I was I a accident someone hit me from behind but my case was just settle with USAA insurance how long before I see a check?

    David’s Answer

    In most cases, an insurance settlement check is delivered within 30 days from the date of the settlement. Furthermore, there may be bills and liens to resolve before there is a distribution. If you are represented by an attorney, contact the attorney to discuss these matters. Hopefully, the check will arrive sooner versus later and you can get your net proceeds in a timely manner.

    Food product liability and restaurant liability cases have been pursued by attorneys. While there are a number of personal injury attorneys in Miami, not all of them accept food product or restaurant liability cases. If there are dental or nerve injuries, contact a local personal injury attorney to find out your legal rights. You may have to place several calls before finding an attorney willing to take on the case. Good luck.

    Be careful when signing any release including any release on behalf of a minor child. Each state has particular rules, regulations, and procedures for settlements on behalf of children. If you signed a Release, this could mean that all present and future claims are waived. Consult with a local personal injury attorney.

    David’s Answer

    You should read the Sales Agreement to see how these matters are covered or excluded. Most Used Card sales are "As Is" which, in turn, provide no recourse in these situations. You should contact a local consumer attorney to see if there is any way to pursue this matter. Good luck.

  • I was hit by a car while riding my bicycle on 10/1/13. The driver did not have a license and was driving an uninsured car.

    I hired a lawyer who told me he couldn't help me further because he needed his fees paid upfront since she was uninsured. I am still suffering from a severe concussion, limping, chronic pain, nerve damage. I do not have medical insurance. I went t...

    David’s Answer

    There may be both a timing and insurance issue with the pursuit of this claim or case. If you owned a vehicle and had Uninsured Motorist, you will need to review the policy OR have an attorney review the policy with you. It is certainly unfair and unfortunate that you were hit by such a careless and irresponsible person; however, there are both legal and practical considerations when an attorney reviews a case for potential legal representation. Good luck.

    David’s Answer

    I understand that the statute of limitations is 2 years from the date of the incident. You should consult with a local attorney immediately to discuss your legal rights. Slip and fall cases can be quite challenging. Do not wait any longer as it may take an attorney some time and document review before committing to a case of this nature. Good luck.

    David’s Answer

    The answer to you question is quite simple. YES. Get an attorney right now. There is no reason to wait any longer. There are plenty of qualified attorneys in your local area. Get on the phone today and schedule a free consultation. The insurance companies are not going to protect you or look after you like an attorney will. Good luck.

    David’s Answer

    You should first consult with a personal injury attorney before doing anything else. You can get the advice and guidance you should have before making any other moves. You can politely tell the manager or others who call that you and the family are concentrating on the medical issues right now and would prefer to focus on family rather than anything else. There could be a cause of action including insurance claims against Six Flags and the Summer Camp program. Good luck.

  • Is it ok if the attorney handling medical malpractice case referred me to call another attorney to plan an estate.

    My loved one died under care of a hospital.

    David’s Answer

    This is certainly appropriate and common. A medical malpractice attorney frequently works with an estate planning attorney on matters just like the one you briefly mentioned.

  • Auto accident and possible lawsuit

    My 19 yo daughter who is covered under the auto insurance in my husbands name, was involved in accident in another state. There were no serious, major injuries although one involved party was taken away by ambulance. She was trying to back out o...

    David’s Answer

    In most situations, the focus of the personal injury attorney representing the injury victim will be on the available insurance coverage rather than the potential assets of the Defendant. Your insurance company should step up and do everything it can to resolve the case so that there is no trial or excess verdict in place against your daughter. If this is causing you stress and worry, you may consider hiring an attorney for the limited purpose of shadowing the case and pressuring the insurance company to do the right thing and protect your daughter. The goal should be that the case goes away without any funds coming out of your daughter's pocket. Good luck.
