    Robert’s Answer

    The judge will likely vacate, refer to mediation, and set a trial date.

    Unless you understand all of that (as Counsel for the Plaintiff Corp. certainly does), you should retain counsel to ensure your interests are protected.

    Contact counsel. They will deal with the insurance issues so you don't have to. An attorney who does both criminal and civil can handle the ticket and your insurance claim.

  • Can they legally denied my coverage because of that? Thank you.

    I was involved in a car accident this month where my daughter was the driver. I reported it to my insurance company (Windhaven). My car is a total loss. After I contacted my insurance company, they are telling that they might not be able to pay my...

    Robert’s Answer

    This is a common occurrence. While you should have spoken to counsel prior to contacting your insurance company, the damage may not yet be beyond repair.

    What your insurance company appears to be alluding to is 'material misrepresentation.' You should seek counsel immediately.

    Proceeding forward absent representation may lead to receiving a check in the mail in the amount of your policy premiums along with a recession letter rather than repair of your automobile.

    Robert’s Answer

    You need to speak to an attorney in order to ensure your rights are properly represented. You might be eligible for coverage under a resident relative or the other driver. Without representation, you might not get the treatment you need.

  • Can I sue that 5 star hotel?

    Robert’s Answer

    Unfortunately, damages are a large part of what drives a lawsuit. Personal injury lawyers operate on a contingency fee which amounts to a percentage of your damages.

    Here, absent a statute that provides for attorneys fees, you would be paying your attorney hourly and at a going rate of b/w $250 - $1000 per hour here in South Florida, you will pay many times more for counsel than your hotel stay.

    You can likely close this out from overseas. I had a similar case with a French citizen who had been studying abroad and needed to leave before their court date. Contact local counsel to retain and discuss further.

    FL Statute prevents a dr. from charging an excessive fee. If you still have an attorney, they will seek to negotiate the bill. If you do not any longer, seek alternative counsel.
