My brother was recently shot in his torso area. This shooting has caused a lot of pain and physical issues to my brother. My family wants to help my brother to get justice for this crime. I wanted to know if we can sue this person for what they...
It would be silly. Shooting someone is an intentional act so it is NOT covered by any insurance. There is no way to recover more than the restitution which can be ordered by the criminal court.See question

Assuming you were on a public road and NOT trespassing on RR property, you do have an action. If you were off-roading and trespassed on RR property, you probably cannot recover FROM THE RR because you will probably be found to be more than 50% at fault.
Consult local counsel with more details.
You can always look to your own insurance.See question
I have two warrants in two separate counties, along with probation violations, both for misdemeanor possession of marijuana and paraphernalia, first offense. What will I face upon arrest? In Indiana
Please recognize that if you are on probation and you have warrants from two separate counties, we are NOT talking about a first offense. Hire defense counsel immediately. On your real first offense, you should have qualified for pre-trial diversion. Now, you NEED counsel.See question
Pro se I can not find an example of a motion to adjucate my health insurances medical lien. Pro se I am close to settling my car accident injury claim because my case is not worth enough or strong enough for a lawyer to take I have contacted sever...
Health insurance CANNOT have a lien on your file. The Healthcare Providers Lien Act does NOT apply. They have a subrogation interest. If you have an uninsured motorist claim, they have NOTHING and you have NO obligation to repay them a penny. If your recovery is so low that no attorney will represent you, is it really worth your while to spend roughly $500.00 to file the claim and have the insurance company served? What is your argument? "I want more money?" If you hired an attorney, he could reduce the amount you must repay (if any) by 1/3 without going to court.See question
On December 30 2016 I was involved in a head on collision with a drunk driver. She was 56 years old and I'm 33. The accident was her fault and she died at the scene. I was extracted from my vehicle as I was unconscious and spent a week in the hosp...
If you meant to ask "How much money can I reasonably recover," that question cannot be answered without many more details. Your recovery will depend upon the following:
1.) Whether you had health insurance or public aid or were not covered by any health insurance
2.) Whether you carried med pay on YOUR policy and how much
3.) Whether the at-fault driver had insurance and how much
This is far more complex than it would appear. It costs you nothing to discuss your matter with an experienced attorney. Make any attorney with whom you speak explain what he can do for you and how he can add value to your claim. Your total recovery is limited to the greater of Defendant's coverage or your UIM coverage of $100,000. What you care about is 1.) Making sure you do not OWE money to a medical provider and 2.) How much money you get to keep.

I was given citations for not having insurance (which i didn't have), not having my drivers license(which was at home on my dresser), and failure to yield ( even though witnesses told me they saw the whole thing and it was not my fault). I have sr...
When you go to court, take 1.) The eyewitness; 2.) Your driver's license, and 3.) Proof that you purchased insurance. You can and should Subpoena the eyewitness provided that the eyewitness's analysis is legally coherent. The witness cannot testify that it was "not your fault." He needs to testify that YOU had the right-of-way and WHY (e.g. you had a green light, green arrow, going straight, ect.). If you are deemed not at fault, the State may give you a pass on the insurance citation because you did purchase insurance.
Your best bet is to contact a local traffic attorney to learn whether your defense is solid and then to possibly negotiate a deferred prosecution plea.See question

You became aware of the problem (and potential negligence) at age 18 so the statute of limitations ran two years later. If more than two years have elapsed, It's too late.See question

No. The other driver simply changed his mind and decided to put it through his insurance rather than wait weeks or months for you to pay. You will be responsible to pay the total cost of repairs and car rental OR have a repayment agreement in place PRIOR to reinstatement of your license.See question

Call the Lake County Prosecuting Attorney to ask if you qualify for the Infraction Deferral Program. If not, hire a local traffic attorney. Paying this ticket is the most expensive thing you can do unless you will never get another ticket. Don't bet on it. Be safe.See question
