Hello, A friend of mine was recently divorced, and she has been served by the sheriff's department because she is being sued for a car accident that her ex-husband was involved in after the divorce. She has a different car insurance company and...
She needs to report it to the insurance that was in effect on the date of the accident, immediately. NONE of the other facts stated are relevant. Provided that the car was insured on the date of the accident AND she immediately notifies her insurance carrier, she has no worries.See question

The short answer is YES. Marijuana is contraband in Indiana. Having more makes it a greater offense but there is NO threshold amount. All you had to do was tell the officer you did not have a license and were waiting for AAA for your mom. He would NOT have insisted that you break the law.

I hit someone and I don't have insurance. They didn't call the police or file an insurance claim as long as I could pay him back after he got his car estimated but it's more than I can afford. What should I do?
Your best option, by far is to borrow the money if there is any way possible. The alternative will make your insurance cost prohibitive and could suspend your license which would involve reinstatement fees and perhaps the guidance of a traffic attorney. Good luck.See question
McCarthy Ford service was negligent in fixing my car. Misdiagnosed a very important problem which almost cost me my life. I need an attorney who can go after them for personal injury and reimbursement of money spent fixing what they missed. This...
If their actions "almost" caused a serious accident there is no case. If they misdiagnosed a problem that came to your attention, you should have returned and taken it up with the service manager. This is probably not amenable to litigation because you never afforded the dealer an opportunity to voluntarily correct whatever was wrong.

I was hit from behind and a settlement has been paid out for $25,000 but my lawyer says he's waiting on medicaid
Medicaid is fairly prompt but your attorney CANNOT distribute before he satisfies their subrogation interest, less reduction under the Common Fund Doctrine.See question
My vehicle. My husband driving. No insurance. He was no at fault. our vehicle was destroyed beyond repair.
Your husband has an action against the other driver but cannot recover beyond the fair market value of the car and actual medical expenses and other damages. If he had no insurance, he cannot seek "pain and suffering" for his injuries.
If you have insurance on ANY car and the car he was driving is NOT expressly excluded, it will probably be covered.
If there is NO insurance, it is VERY unlikely that you will find an attorney willing to take the case.See question
I was riding my bicycle down a city street when a dog ran out and attacked me, knocking me from my bike. I went to the hospital. I had a concussion and a seperated shoulder. I am a mechanic and have been for 40 years. I've been to 3 appointme...
I agree with my colleagues. That said, you should be aware that State Farm will NOT pay any money on the claim until they know how much the claim is worth. The value of the claim CANNOT be determined until your medical care is completed. You also need to consult a competent orthopaedic surgeon ASAP to determine the appropriate course of treatment. If you will not be able to return to your occupation, you have a VERY significant claim. It is never a great idea to borrow money against your case but it beats having your health insurance cancelled or your mortgage in foreclosure. Your attorney can arrange that for you.
YOUR recovery is going to be the biggest factor in case value and the time it will take to resolve. If you need surgery, it is probably unrealistic that it can be resolved in less than 12-18 months. If a lawsuit needs to be filed, that will add at least 9 months, or more. This is serious. Make sure that you are comfortable with the attorney who you choose to represent you.

I had an injury at work. I went through the State's Workman's Comp process and am at the point of determining the monetary compensation due me resulting from residual impairment. I am a mobil laborer out of TX, the accident occurred in Indiana wh...
If I understand, you "consulted" but did not HIRE an attorney. You had potential jurisdiction in Nevada, Texas, and Indiana. Indiana has some of the most restrictive and lowest reimbursement WC laws in the country. If you had alternatives, whomever counselled you to stay in indiana where you have NO say over what doctor you see or when you your medical care is complete, gave you really bad advice. If you were hired in NV, you could have chosen NV. If the company is based in TX, you could have chosen TX. If the case is not settled, it may not be too late!!!
Indiana is one of the few states where the best attorney is almost never able to add value to your claim because the value is determined by your doctor and a formula set forth in the statute. They CAN and SHOULD advise you to compare the benefit rates in you alternate venues. CHECK out the other venues ASAP by calling a WC attorney in TX and another in NV.
Good luck.See question
Hi, I was shopping in a store and something fell on my foot. They wrote an incident report but refused to refer me to medical care. I saw a doc and the bone was not broken but badly bruised, it still gives some pain. They sent a letter fro...
You waited too long. If you had contacted an attorney when this happened he could have guided your recovery. You would have secured a definitive diagnosis and the claim could have been settled within 9 months or so. Now, you are asking an attorney to invest at least a year of his time and to spend more than $1,000 to file suit and complete Discovery. Moreover, if the medical care is all liened against the file and your injury is so minor, the expected recovery may not be enough to pay the medical bills and attorney fees without the attorney seeking adjudication of the medical bills. More work for very little money. Waiting is ALWAYS the wrong thing to do.See question
The person hit me we both have the same insurance company, Is this a first party claim? the insurance company said it is and I can not claim diminish value. Is this true? I call the insurance company and they said the other party was at fault. ...
A first party claim is a claim on YOUR policy. You describe a 3rd-party claim. Does the police report assign fault? Either way, if you were injured, you need to consult an attorney.See question
