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.
What'S The Difference Between Murder And Wrongful Death?
What'S The Difference? A Crime Show Got Me Thinking, Could A Person Be Found Innocent Of Murder, But Guilty Of Wrongful Death Of Someone?
Murder is a criminal offence, wrongful death is a civil action. A person can be found innocent of murder and still be sued for wrongful death because the burden of proof is different. For murder the burden of proof is beyond a reasonable doubt, for wrongful death it is by a preponderance of the evidence. Also, wrongful death does not have to be intentional, and murder does.
Can The Father Give Up He'S Rights If The Mother Will Not Agree?
And Will He Still Have To Pay For Child Support?
You'll have to discuss the legal issues with your attorney. I do, however have strong opinions as to what is the right thing to do in this situation. Your child needs both parents. It's not the father's rights you would be giving away, but your child's right to know and spend time with father. Think about it carefully. And having spread your seed, it is your responsibility to financially care for your child, regardless of what the courts say. I believe, however that the courts will hold you to your financial responsibility.
What About The Divorce Decree? Legal Question?
In The Divorce Decree And Settlement, It Was Stated That My Ex-Wife Would Keep The House But Would Refinance It With In 6 Months. The Old Lender Refuse To Refinance Because They Say They Don'T Handle That Stuff. Other Places That She Has Contacted Will Not Do It Because Of Her Credit History Or Because It Is A Mobile Home. The Older Lender Will Not Remove My Name From The Listing And Get Very Rude Including One Person Yelling At Me That They Don'T Have To Honor Any Divorce Decree. This Is Becoming A Problem Because She Isn'T Paying On The House Right And It Is Hurting My Credit Score And I Can'T Move Forward With Other Plans Because Officially I Am Already Buying A House And Have Too Much Debt. Is There Anything That I Can Do? Do I Have Any Recourse That Could Help Me In This Situation?
This is the major problem with divorce decrees. Lenders are not legally bound by them. So as long as your name is on the loan your responsible for the payment no matter what your decree says.
All you can do is drag her back to court and sue for contempt.
Even if you win there is not a lot the courts can do if your ex doe's not qualify for the loan or doe's not have the ability to make the payment.
The court can order her to sell the home and split the profits with you or order her to move out and you take the home back.
Question A Lawyer Would Ask...?
In A Murder Trial? Both Lawyer For The Defence And For The Prosecution. And If Possible, Could You Please Include Answers But Unintelligent Answers But Not Funny Either. Just No Big Words.
I'M Acting Out A Murder Trial For English Gcse And I'M The Murderer. I'M Uneducated So I'Ll Answer The Questions Appropriately But With No Use Of Wider Vocabulary.
What you have to remember about the prosecution is this: they are not going to ask questions unless they already know (or think they know) the answer. They are always going to try to trip you up and make you say things that contradict what you told the police. There are many things to consider when facing a death sentence in a murder trial. If you want to avoid the death sentence and they have the goods on you, then you must throw doubt into the minds of the jury. You should say that you think you might be guilty because everyone says you are, but that you don't remember what actually happened. Or you may want to make the jury sympathize with you by making them believe that you had no other choice but to kill . . . you were just trying to survive. Beware of any questions the prosecutor asks that requires a "yes" or "no" answer. Never answer "yes" or "no" no matter how much they press you. If you a good actor, make tears appear when necessary. Answer direct questions with, "I don't recall," or "I can't really remember."
