How Do You Find An Attorney?
My Cousin Got In A Bit Of Trouble. Her Boyfriend Borrowed Her Car And Crashed It Into A Tree And Left The Scene Of The Accident. She Lied And Told Police The Car Was Stolen, They Knew She Was Lying, She Got Arrested And Will Be Charged For A Bunch Of Things Including Insurance Fraud.
She'S In Nj, Morris County.
How Can We Find A Lawyer And Is There A Way To Find Out If They Are Good?
Check with the local Bar Association Office and tell them what kind of case your cousin needs the attorney for and they will hopefully give her the name of an attorney who handles those kinds of cases.
When she is being interviewed by the Attorney she can ask him how many cases like this has he handled - and won, as well asking the Clerk of Court what if any info they can give you on this attorney as far as his track record goes. -
Personal Injury Auto Settlement?
I Was In An Accident 11/6/11 Hit By A Lifted Diesel Truck At About 25-30 Mph While I Was In Park. My Arm Was Out The Window And I Suffered Whiplash As Well As &Quot;Soft Tissue Injury&Quot;.
I Was In Physical Therapy Until 3/12 And Chiropractic Therapy Until 6/12 Going To Appointments Weekly, Taking My Time From My Day.
Also Prior To This I Was Very Physically Active And Outdoorsy.
For 2-3 Months I Could Not Lift Over 20Lbs, Including My Nephew That Was Living In My Home And A Toddler, As Well As Having To Have Extra Help To Move As I Couldnt Lift The Boxes Etc Without Hurting.
I Gained 25 Pounds Because For 5 Months I Couldnt Participate In Sports Etc. Spent A Lot Of The Time Watching Everyone Else Or Staying Home.
As An Avid Snowboarder I Typically Spend My Winter On The Mountain, I Couldnt Board All Winter Or Even Go Sledding For That Matter.
Two Weekends A Month My Girlfriends And I Used To Go Out To Dinner And Dancing, I Tried This In February And Was In Pain For Over A Week After, And Wasnt Able To Try Again Until June.
To Me This Is Huge As Far As Pain And Suffering. It Cramped My Whole Lifestyle For Months Not To Mention The Weight Gained, The Pain Itself, And The Overall Stress And Headache The Whole Thing Caused.
The Insurance Company Is Ready To Discuss A Settlement, Would It Be Unreasonable For Me To Say I Wont Settle For Less Than $6500. I Think It Is Fair Considering The Time It Has Taken From My Life As Well As Knowing The &Quot;Soft Tissue Limit&Quot; Is Usually Around 10000.
The insurance company is not responsible for your weight gain.
If you were less active due to your injury then you should have cut back your calorie intake.
Maybe you could not snowboard, but you could walk, swim. You don't have to participate in sports to burn calories. If it really concerned you, you could have asked your doctor for safe activities you could do that would help your rehabilitation and help you burn calories.
All a "soft tissue injury" is another way of saying "sprain/strain".
You can ask for what ever amount you want. No guarentee you'll get it.
And there is no where near enough information here for anyone to remotely put a value on the claim.
You'll just have to talk to the adjuster and see what the two of you can work out.

If You Are Cleared By A Jury And An Investigation Why Can You Be Retried By A Wrongful Death Charge?
Because a grand jury investigates CRIMINAL charges.... and a wrongful death charge is a CIVIL suit...
So... Suppose Mr. S killed his ex-wife, but was acquitted of criminal charges by finding of a jury. The family of the deceased could sue Mr. S in civil court, for the wrongful death of their daughter. Of course, it would not be for the purpose of punishing him by sending him to prison... it would be about money. He would be ordered to pay them monetary damages (cash... or proceeds from book sales) to compensate them for the loss of their daughter.
This is all possible because the burden of proof in a criminal trial is "beyond a reasonable doubt"... and the burden of proof in a civil trial is "by a preponderance of the evidence." (which just means there is more evidence that indicates he did it than there is that indicates he didn't do it.) He can't be sent to prison in a civil trial, but will be ordered to pay them for the loss of her life.
In cases where this happens... the criminal jury didn't feel there was proof beyond a reasonable doubt.. meaning overwhelming proof to the point you can't reasonably doubt he's guilty... but the civil jury or court felt there was more evidence that pointed to his guilt than his innocence.
What Exactly Is A Criminal Attorney?
What Do They Do, And How Long Do You Go To College For?
they defend people for a hefty fee in criminal court cases. their education depends on them, some pass the bar exam quickly and some take many many years to pass their bar exam.
basically they are mostly lawyers who represent criminals who are guilty but then there are some innocent people accused of crimes that they did not commit.
i like the idea that a lawyer defends innocent people but lawyers make the most money who defend guilty people..... seems our courts are about who gets the best lawyer and not about who is innocent or not.
i truly believe there are more criminals who are lawyers than any other profession..... while in prison the convicts get to study law in the libraries for free, great education at tax payers expense and many end up with law degrees
Retail Theft Database, Company Bankrupt?
I Had An Incident At Work Back In August. I Had Taken A Little Bit Over 300.00 From My Employer. I Had To Pay For Medical Bills And I Didn't Have Insurance At The Time. I Paid Restitution For The Entire Amount And I Feel Really Bad About It. Since August, I Have Been Unemployed. Money Is Beginning To Get Really Tight As I Am Living Off My Savings. They Never Prosecuted Me Or Even Took Me To Court. But They Did Enter My Name In A Retail Theft Database. The Company Is Now Bankrupt And Will Close All Stores And Operations On Dec 31, 2008. This Is My First Time Ever Being In Trouble, This Major And I Feel Sincerely Sorry And Wish There Was Another Way Of Me Obtaining The Money For The Medical Bill. I Know Was Wrong And I've Been Punished And Out Of Work And College Because I Can't Pay For Tuition. My Question Is Do You Think That I Can Clear My Name From A Retail Theft System (Dispute The Incident) If The Company Went Bankrupt And There Would Be No One There To Dispute The Case? Anyone That Has Experience In This, Could You Please Advise Me? Thank You.
Find a lawyer(public defender) for this case. I'm not familiar with your state law nor US law but I'm definite your employer needs court order to put you on "theft database" list.
