Personal Injury Question?
If Someone Gets Hit By A City Transit Bus, Dragged Under The Bus For 700 Ft., And As A Result Suffers A Broken Pelvic Bone, An Amputated Leg From The Mid-Thigh On Down, Fractured Bones In An Arm And Serious Roadburn That Requres Skin-Grafting......What Estimated Monetary Compensation Would They Be Entitled To? This Person Is 60 And Was Healthy And Able-Bodied Before The Accident.
Also, Is The Medical And Therapeutic Costs A Part Of The Settlement Dollar Amount?
What Percentage Are The Lawyers Fees Typically
In a normal personal injury settlement, the insurance company for the bus, would pay for all medical bills, treatment, lost wages and pain/suffering. From that settlement, the doctors/hospitals etc will get paid from that settlement the amount of the medical bills owed for services to this person.
Most lawyers will charge 1/3 or 33.33 % of any settlement, and if the lawyer files a lawsuit, then the percentage goes on average to 40%.
But any settlement is based on negligence, (fault), so IF, the bus driver was not negligent in causing these injuries, then the insurance company can deny or not pay anything. It would depend on if the man himself was at fault for being hit by this bus.
So, IF, like one person gave an example of 1 million dollars, then as an example the hospital/surgery costs $500,000, plus therapy for 6 months could cost $10,000, that would be subtracted out of the million dollars. Then the lawyer takes 1/3, or $163,333, leaving a balance of $326,667.00 to the victim. But if the lawyer files a lawsuit and it goes to 40%, then the lawyer gets $196,000 and $294,000 to the victim.
Most of the time, after the medical bills and lawyer, the victim may not get a lot.
Possible Criminal Charges And Lawsuits Help?
A Husband Cleans Out Their Wifes Business Account Due To A Future Divorce And Plans On Taking Over The Business, He Took The Bill Of Sale For The Business From Her Files And Cleaned Out The Joint Bank Accounts Cutting Her Off Financially, What All Charges Can Be Brought Up Against Him? And What Lawsuits Can Be Filed? Its Happening To A Very Close Friend, Wanting To Know What We Are In For Before We Get Started.
No criminal charges are a possibility. They were joint bank accounts - he has the legal ability to clean them out without it ever being considered theft.
Her only recourse is to hire a family law attorney and litigate over who is entitled to what during the divorce. (It doesn't matter that the business is 100% in her name - he obviously has an interest in the business and the revenue from the business constitutes a marital asset that the court can divide.) If she gets a halfway decent attorney, she should be able to get temporary orders put in place that would require him to return some of the money he took out of the joint accounts.
EDIT: Drixnot is a moron . . . The situaton involving John Gosslin did NOT go into civil court. This was handled in DOMESTIC court. Kate Gosslin's attorney filed a motion for (gasp - wait for it, wait for it) a temporary order - which was granted and the judge required John-boy to return a significant chunk of the money he took out of the joint accounts. The divorce proceedings continued. Hmmm . . . and where did we read about temporary orders and how this can only be accomplished through the divorce proceedings? Oh yeah, in my original answer.
Gotta love people who think they know the law. As long as those chuckleheads are out there giving bad/stupid advice and information, attorneys will always be needed to clean up the mess.
Become A Criminal Law Lawyer Or Become A Surgeon?
I Really Like Both Careers. But When I Think About Becoming A Lawyer And Then Possibly Branching Out Into Politics Deep Down Inside It Makes Me Feel Good. The Only Turn Off Is The Salary.
When I Think About Become A Surgeon Either Cardiovascular, E.R Or Plastic Surgeon I Feel That I Can Make A Good One, And I Like The Salary, But I Dont Get The Same Feeling I Do If I Think About Becoming A Lawyer.
Can Anyone Please Give Me Some Advice??
Become a lawyer. It seems as if you want to become a surgeon only because of the salary. If you're a lawyer, your salary could be unlimited depending on how passionate and competent you are.
Do I Need A Lawyer?
I Was Hit By An Suv While Crossing Main Street In The Crosswalk In Fact I Was About 2&Quot; From The Yellow Line In The Center Of The Street When I Was Hit. Both Lanes Of Traffic On Main Street Had Stopped To Let Me Cross, When A Vehicle Shot Out Of A Side Street And Hit Me. She Somehow Drove Over My Foot From Toes To Top Of Foot And I Fell Down With My Body And Foot Now Pointing Down Main Street Instead Of Across It. I Also Have Her Tire Prints Just Abov My Ankle Bone And Just Behind My Knee. I Saved My Pants With The Markings From The Accident Showing The Black Marks From Her Tires Going Around My Foot And Up Side Of My Leg.
I Am Going For An Mri But The Bone Specialist Seems To Think This Will Heal With Time. She'S Ordering Mri Just To Make Sure I Didn'T Tear Cartlidge.
If This Is Just A Knee Sprain Should I Settle Without A Lawyer? For How Much? Anyone Got Any Idea What This Case Is Worth On Those Grounds? I Live In Maine So It Would Have To Be Maine Rates. Thank You Very Much
I live in Texas, so I can't say a thing about settlement rates in the state of Maine.
And I have no clue how much your case would be worth on the grounds you've stated.
But personally, if I were you, I really would find a lawyer to represent your best interests...definately since this will be a medical issue.
It MAY be just a knee sprain. Or something else could develop because of the accident.
Does Parental Power Of Attorney Work Out Of State?
I'M 17 And I Live In Florida And My Parents Have Given Me Permission To Live With My Best Friend In Arizona. I Found That The Parental Power Of Attorney Allows Me To Do This, But It Never Really Mentions Anything About Moving Out Of State. Is This Legal? What Would I Need To Do To Make This Happen?
Your parents should speak with a local attorney or legal service.
A power of attorney just formally indicates that your parents give permission to somebody else to make decisions on your behalf. It's most commonly used for things like educational decisions and medical decisions. However, no place is obligated to accept it, and some places have specific forms and paperwork of their own they want completed instead. For example, a school district in Arizona may or may not recognize the power of attorney for you to attend school there. It's up to them. Some doctors or hospitals may not want to recognize it. None of them have to.
Anyway, you'd need to speak with a local attorney or legal service. Annnnd, you're probably going to need to confirm with relevant schools, doctors, etc., that the power of attorney you're obtaining is something they'll accept. Even if they accept a power of attorney, they may want specific wording or clauses for their purposes.
