I was injured on my Job and had to have three back surgeries. my doctor released me in October 2013 to work on a trial basis. I returned to work and in Nov 2014 I was reinjured and my attorney would not go to court to get my benefits restored I ha...
You waited TOO long!!! You always have the right to change representation, at ANY time, for ANY reason. HOWEVER, on your facts, your attorney has represented you for at least 6 years. If you dump him now, you will be VERY hard pressed to find a new attorney because the new attorney would be forced to give the lion's share of the fee to the old attorney. For the last 3-4 years, your attorney has been going to the Commission at least 4 times a year and sending his clerk to the calls, if nothing else.
As my colleagues have advised, make an appointment to meet with your attorney and make him explain just exactly what he proposes and demand to know why he has not filed a Motion to reinstate your benefits. You also need to make sure that the 2014 accident is filed and hope that it was timely reported to your employer. Good luck.See question
Brought my 2008 Jeep Liberty to dealership to get a/c repaired. They somehow deployed the air bags, so my car is now considered "totaled." They are offering me blue book value on my car only. My car was paid off. I don't see why I should come ou...
You are entitled to the fair market value FMV (what a willing buyer will pay a willing seller). That may or may not be the blue book value. How are you "losing?" If they give you the FMV, you can buy another similar vehicle.See question

When you plead guilty in Indiana, you MUST lay a factual basis for the plea, under oath. You didn't just say "I'm guilty." The judge would have made you state exactly what you did (at least to include each element of the offense). A guilty plea that was not questioned for the better part of a decade is bulletproof. As my colleague advised, the time to fight was when you were charged.See question

My mom was in a motorcycle accident. The man she was with was hardly injured. He sued the insurance company and got his settlement and my mom was suing the person who almost killed her and she passed before anything was settled. Now us kids are ta...
You REALLY need to sit down with your attorney and make him tell you where he is getting these numbers. Unless the accident was caused by a commercial truck, there will not be anywhere near this kind of money available. I have NEVER seen a non-commercial vehicle that carried a $3,000,000.00 insurance policy. Your mother has a survival action as well as a wrongful death claim.
If you are correct, your attorney stands to earn a fee of $1,000,000. If that is no enough incentive for him to sit down with you and explain what he is doing, you may wish to seek a second opinion. Good luck.

I was in a car accident. I broke some bones in my leg and shattered my ankle. My settlement is $50,000 and the lien is $90,000. I didn't have medical insurance the time of my surgery. I didn't even know there was a lien until I called my attorney ...
Not to add insult to injury but if you had complied with Federal law (The Affordable Care Act), your lien would be closer to $9,000 than $90,000. Beyond that, you could have carried more insurance. You could probably have bumped up your coverage to an extra $100,000 for $10-$15/ month. You could then have made an Underinsurance claim on YOUR policy for the extra money. I realize that these are NOT options for you NOW.
Your attorney will do everything he can to optimize your recovery, as Mr. Shaw has advised, with the limited funds available.See question
I had a home water softener being installed in my home. When I left for work we had a laptop sitting on our island. The company installed the water softener making multiple trips through our house. When the crew left my laptop was missing. We i...
Please read your question. In other words, it says: "During a time when I was NOT present and my house was open, a laptop went missing. There is no surveillance video or other proof that other people were not in the house and again, I wasn't even there. Why won't the contractor's insurance admit that one of the workers stole my property and offer to reimburse me?"
The answer is because you cannot begin to prove they had anything to do with the fact that it is missing.See question
I was acrossd the street and he came with a few guys and fractured my spine rib and Had traumatic head injury. I've been of work for some time note
I don't see any remedy for you. Put simply, these guys beat you up. That is an intentional act. NO insurance covers intentional acts so even if you sued your attackers and won, you would probably never collect any money. Your injuries justify recovery of hundreds of thousands of dollars.
If you had a judgment against you for say $300,000.00, would you pay on it for the rest of your life or would you discharge it in Bankruptcy? It's a rhetorical question. That's why you won't find a lawyer to represent you beyond a demand.See question
My daughter was in a car accident unfortunately she was at fault she had no insurance at the time, the collection agency for the insurance company is demanding an amount that she can't pay for monthly payment. What are her options?
It is unlikely that a reasonable payment will be rejected. I said payment, not promise to pay. The insurance company understands that though it is virtually guaranteed a judgment in its favor, that judgment may well be uncollectible. Depending on the amount, your daughter simply needs to decide whether to repay it or discharge it in bankruptcy. She MUST do one of those to reinstate her license which was suspended as a result of this accident. As Mr. Hoffman notes, she is truly fortunate that nobody was injured.
She absolutely must NOT drive in the interim.See question

This site CANNOT give "legal advice." Consult a criminal defense attorney BEFORE you surrender yourself and STOP POSTING. "MA" is probably shorthand for Class A Misdemeanor which simply means that it is punishable by a maximum of 1 year in jail. Good luck.See question
