It is not only individuals who need sound legal advice: Businesses often have many questions when it comes to the law surrounding their operation. Pertinent issues faced by companies include business formation and defense.
Forming the right type of business is key. With sole proprietorships, limited liability companies, and other types of organizations, strict rules apply to the procedures for expansion and taxes. Obtaining sound legal advice at the start of your enterprise makes legal problems less likely later.
Defending a business from lawsuits is often more complicated than defending an individual. Businesses affect more than one consumer, so every day there's the potential for lawsuits that could be numerous and wide in scope. Class-action lawsuits, in which more than one party attempts to sue a company or organization, are one such legal issue.
If you have questions or concerns regarding business law, consult an attorney with expertise in this area. Do not choose a lawyer with generalized experience. You want a professional with the background and knowledge to handle legal issues related to business formation, dissolution, or defense.

Can You Suggest A Good Book Or Website For Estate Planning?
Especially For Ppl In Washington State. I Hear That If A Grown (Adult) Child Lives At Home With The Parents For 2 Or More Yrs That The Parents Can Quitclaim The House To The Child. This Would Be To Avoid (Legally Avoid) Estate Taxes On The House If It Were Willed To The Kid. Thanks.
I would speak with an estate planning attorney. Most good attorneys will do a free consultation, and give a recommendation depending on your specific needs. Each state has slightly different laws and each scenario is different so it is not a good idea to take advice from people on tv/the internet.
California: Bodily Injury Insurance Claim, How Does This Whole Thing Work???
I Was In An Auto Accident About 4 Months Ago, The Other Vehicle(Commercial Truck) Rear Ended A Car In Back Of Me, Going At About 40-50Mph, That Vehicle Then Rammed Into The Car In Front Of Them & That Vehicle Rammed Into My Car, Thus Creating A Sort Of Domino Effect (Me & The Other 2 Cars That Were Hit Were Completely Stopped At The Time Of Impact). Luckily I Did Not Hit Any One (The Commercial Truck Was Found To Be 100% At Fault), However I Was About 7 Months Pregnant At The Time Of The Accident, I Was Rushed Immediately To The Hospital By The Ambulance & Ended Up Having To Stay There For Almost 2 Days The Impact Sent Me Into Pre-Term Labor! I Was Released From The Hospital Still Pregnant, However I Had A Lot Of Pain In My Back, A Bruised Rib & My Legs Hurt A Lot After The Accident (Lifting Them, Exercising). Luckily I Was Able To Go Full Term With My Pregnancy. I've Had My Child Since Then & I Now Have Upper Back Pain A Lot & Neck Pain & My Labor Was A Lot Worse Then My First Born. What Are My Options I Have An Attorney But He Doesn't Seem To Eager If You Know What I Mean, He Is Not Telling Me Very Much. I Am Also Kind Of Traumatized Because I Have Panic Attacks When Ever A Vehicle Gets Too Close Behind Me. I May Be Damaged For Life Physically & Mentally Because Of This Accident I Want To Be Fairly Compensated What Options Do I Have? I Have Never Been In An Accident Where I Had A Bodily Injury Claim, The Last Thing I Want Is To Settle For Too Little.
I work in a Chiropractic clinic, and it's my job to handle Personal Injury Claims [Auto Accidents]. I work in Kansas City, so everything I am saying is according to Missouri law. I'm sure it's a little different in CA, but most insurance companies are the same throughout the states.
The most important question to ask I guess is what auto insurance did the commercial truck have? And do you have all of that information still? His insurance is called 3rd Party Liability, because you said that it was all his fault. Not only is his insurance responsible for your bodily injury, but also to the other drivers if they were injured as well. There is a possibility that his insurance isn't high enough to cover three different cars [assuming everyone was injured]...the state requirement in MO is $15,000. I'm not sure about CA. Let's assume that it is high enough, though.
In my experience, insurance companies won't pay for "bodily injury" unless you've have sought treatment almost immediately after the accident. Some companies are 30 days, some are 90 days. If you don't seek medical treatment before however many days, they won't cover it...claiming that the injury wasn't a result of the accident. HOWEVER, if you were pregnant and required hospitalization, I think that merits a little glance. It sounds like you were in tons of pain. If you can prove that you've been doing things to help alleviate the pain, and you have a paper trail to prove it...then the insurance companies will take you seriously. For instance: you got in the accident on April 1st. You spent a few days in the hospital. When you got out, you had to go back to work, take care of the family, etc. You still had some back pain, you went to the medical doctor on the 20th and he prescribed you some pain pills. In the meantime, you are using hot packs, ice packs, tylenol. In the insurance business they call that "self treating", and telling them that you did that will make them listen. The end of May you go to a massage therapist. The pain still is there so in June you get an MRI, and July you go back to your Medical Doctor. You get my drift...
What you're basically trying to do is set up a timeline for the insurance company to prove to them, yeah the accident happened 4 months ago...but this pain is not going away. You have documented papers (Any doctor visits not including GYN for baby, massages, receipts from tylenol) that prove that you were seeking relief.
Once that has been established, the insurance company now knows that they're gonna have to pay for your physical therapy. And how 3rd Party works is, you go to the Physical Therepist (or Chiropractor or whatever) and they get you better. Meanwhile the bill that you've racked up from getting back to normal is huge now. 3rd Party has to pay that. And guess what else they need to do? Now, they try to settle with you for a low amount. If your bill with the PT comes to $4000, they'll try to settle with you for $4500. Well, that only barely pays the bill, plus you only get a lousy $500. How it's supposed to happen is, they compensate you for:
- Time lost from work [you had to stop working because of your injury, no matter if it was 2 days or 2 weeks...they need to pay you for that lost time you'll never get back]
- Time lost with your family [not to mention your pregnancy, but time that you couldn't spend with your husband or boyfriend because you were in so much pain, any birthdays or holidays you missed.]
- "Duties Under Duress" That is exactly what the insurance company calls this. It means, things that you have to do on a regular basis, that you no longer can do without pain. For instance: you can't lift the laundry to do it, you can't scrub the dishes because it hurts your shoulder, you can't pick up your child. Basically they're paying for your pain and suffering. And they need to! All this mess wouldn't have hurt if that accident had never happened!
So keep that in mind when they throw numbers at you to try and settle. They need to compensate you for everything you've had to go through because of the wreck. Also, you need to know that your lawyer will get a third of the settlement right off the top. So plan accordingly, and don't settle for 12 grand unless you're willing to only get 8.
I know this is long, but Insurance Companies make me so mad...and I hope that my information helps you. Feel free to message me if you have any more questions. :) Good luck!
If Someone Needs A Lawyer?
Can You Hire One Only In A Certain Area Or Can U Hire One From Any State. For Example You Get In Trouble In Ohio And Live There Can You Get A Representive From Va. I Know It Will Probably Be More Expensive But You Know How Usually The Lawyer And Court Are All In Together And It Seems You Just Don'T Get A Decent Ruling.
Some lawyers are licensed in more than one state. Not all, by any means, but some. It doesn't matter where they live. It matters where they are licensed. It is also very foolish to hire a lawyer who is not familiar with local customs, the attitude of the judges, the practices of the DA and such, but that wast not your question.
It is also possible to hire a lawyer who is not licensed in your state who can then petition the court to appear for one specific case. In some states, they must associate with a local licensed lawyer and so the cost is double and the effectiveness is reduced, but that is your choice.
