Collection Agency Pretend To Be Law Firms?
Do Collection Agency'S Pretend To Be Law Firms To Scare You Into Paying Them With The Threat Of Legal Action? How Much Do You Think You Would Have To Owe Before They Try To Get A Judgement Against You?
Regarding law suits...
You might be able to sue someone in a state you don't live and get a judgment, but that judgment would be thrown out almost immediately. You can't sue someone in a county where they don't live. The law allows you to defend yourself. If you live in Boston, and you are sued in LA for an old credit card debt, it doesn't make sense. Proper service of the complaint is a requirement for a law suit. And most states require that the suit be served in person, often by a process server or a member of the sheriff's office in the county where you live. LA County Sheriff's office isn't going to go all the way to Boston to serve a law suit for a civil action. If proper service is not done, that is grounds for a judgment to be overturned. A collection agency would be stupid to sue you in a county where you don't live. Also, it's a requirement of the FDCPA that you are sued where you live or, if a house is involved, where the house is located.
If a collection agency pretends to be a lawyer or a law firm, they are violating the law -- go and read the FDCPA - Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
I was sued by a collection agency. Before the case even went to court, the lawyer had racked up $1200 in fees. In the end, they got nothing. Most law suits are filed to scare people into paying something. When that doesn't work, they will tend to take you to court because they assume you can't afford a lawyer. With the lawyer who racked up $1200 in fees...once I started to fight back, they just gave up because they knew that in the end, it wasn't worth it. In many states, legal fees are not automatically paid to the victor -- a judge must decide that.
Also, consider wage garnishment. If it is allowed in your state (it is disallowed in NC, FL, TX and PA), then they are more likely to sue. However, there are limits to garnishment, and certain types of money can't be garnished - like disability and Social Security.
Don't assume because the amount is small that you are free from being sued. People are greedy by nature, and you just don't know. If you are swimming that much in debt, you might want to consider bankruptcy, but everyone's situation is different.
Remember, judgments must be earned. As long as you file your papers on time and go to court, there's always a chance to avoid a judgment. Don't assume that you will automatically lose. The burden of proof rests solely with the person/collection agency who sues you.
If You Win A Wrongful Death Suit Can The Other People Turn Around And File Bankruptcy So They Won'T Have To Pa
We Are Not Sure What To Do. Our Daughter Was Killed In A Car Accident And The Insurance Company Wants Us To Settle For A Small Amount And Sign Saying We Will Not Sue For Wrongful Death
hmm. well, yes, if they don't have the money to pay you and if they have other creditors, they'll probably file bankruptcy and they are allowed to do that. But I think they have to be in such a bad financial state that they would qualify for bankruptcy first.
I feel like their insurance would have to pay the full amount of their policy regardless of their bankruptcy. But if their policy isn't for very much money, then a lawsuit might not be worth it. But you can get a lot for wrongful death ordinarily.
I wouldn't sign any agreement with the insurance until you talk to a lawyer. It's hard for me to say what to do because I don't know how much money the other people actually have or what their insurance can pay or what they did to cause the car accident. If it's really a straightforward wrongful death case that you should definately win, if you get a lawyer and threaten with a lawsuit, you should be able to push the insurance to pay more than what they're offering now. But again, if they don't have any money, you can't get any money. And if the suit goes to trial, it's going to be more expensive than settling which might make it less worth the lawsuit. So talk to a lawyer and find out how much the other people have and how much the insurance can pay and how much the attorneys fees would be (maybe just a percentage of whatever you win) and talk about how likely your case is to win so that you can consider the amount that you can get in a settlement.
I feel like the insurance is probably pushing for an early settlement so that you agree that you won't sue before you find out how much you should really get, and once you agree not to sue, you can't. So talk to a lawyer FIRST! Or at least tell the insurance that their offer is not enough.
I'm really sorry about your daughter and I'm sorry that I can't offer any better advice. It has to be your decision and you're the only people who are in the position with all the information to make that decision.
Legal Question I Need To Know Asap!?

How Do Lawyers Charge For Personal Injury Cases?
I Was Hit By An Uninsured Driver And I Only Have Liability Insurance, No Other Coverage. I Want To Sue The Guy For $7000, Which Is The Average Estimate I Got From 3 Shops. $5000 Is The Limit For Small Claims Court So I Have To Do A Civic Suit And Get A Lawyer. Since The Guy Was Uninsured, I Have To Pay Out Of Pocket For The Lawyer.
Do They Charge An Hourly Flat Rate Or Do They Usually Charge A Percentage Of The Amount Sued For? I Want To Know About How Much Something Like This Will Run Me Since It'S All Out Of Pocket For Now.
You can use either a "no win-no fee" lawyer, they however will take a cut of your award. Or you can use a lawyer and pay fees, that will likely cost you about the same when all is said and done. A legal firm will always give you a free initial assessment and part of that is they will outline costs - per hour, for writing letters, going to court etc.
My advice is to contact a few firms local to you and see what they will cost and make a decision based on who you think will do the best job. But as the guy has no insurance then getting anything out of him could be tricky - if you pay out up front for a lawyer then he will want to be paid (naturally) and you will be paying him out of your pocket, the problem is, will the other guy pay you?
I might be inclined to go through the small claims court take $5K have no legal fees and take whatever payment plan you are offered.
Do Banks And Corporate Firms Discriminate Against People With Dreadlocks During Hiring Processes?
I'M Interested In A Career In Investment Banking So Right Now I'M Applying To Banks And Other Investment Firms For A Job And I Have Dreadlocks. Will I Have To Cut It To Improve My Chances Of Landing A Job?
I'm a 31 year old African American female and I've worked as a Librarian in corporate law firms for the past 8 years. I've always worn my hair natural since I was 18. I’ve had an Afro, dreadlocks, braids and even shaved my head bald once. Now I’ve settled on dreadlocks and I can assure you that there isn't as much discrimination against dreadlocks as people imagine there to be. I’ve seen black men and women with all types of natural hair styles working at all levels at the firm I am at now. It really depends on the how well you maintain your hair no matter what style you choose. Nowadays there are salons that cater to natural hair care for African Americans where you can go to groom your locks so that they look more “presentable.” You should also consider the culture of the particular company you want to work for some are going to be more conservative than others. So if it isn’t your hair they pick up on it might be something else. Your hair has nothing to do with your skills no more than your color or gender so if you feel discriminated against because of your appearance stand up for yourself. But also consider if that is really the type of company you’d want to work for in the first place? Good luck!
I Need A Referral To A Good Lawyer In Phoenix!?
I Just Recently Broke Up With My Fiance, Who Is At Least 4 Months Pregnant. I Say At Least 4 Months Because She Still Has Not Seen A Doctor. Until 3 Weeks Ago, The Child Was Mine But Now She Tells Me It Could Be Another Guys! After Several Threats To Me From Her Father, The Other Guy, And Her, She Has Used The Legal System To Try Get Me Yanked Out Of Our House. We Had Just Signed The Papers, Two Days Before She Decided To Just Leave. She Has Never Lived In The House, But By Law, Because She Is On The Lease, She Can Come And Go As She Pleases! So Much More To This Including Assault, And Property Damage. I Don'T Care What This Costs Me But Would Love A Referral To A Very Good Law Firm In Phoenix Az, That Deal With Civil, Family, And Criminal Law. Thank You!!!!
Honestly, the best recommendations come from word of mouth, if you know someone in your community that was satisfied with their results, go with that. If not, try an attorney referral service or just look in the Yellow Pages for a long standing, well established firm in Phoenix. It really is a crap shoot when you get down to it.
