Personal Injury Claim?
Help Me Out Here - We Went To Our Friends' House For A Party - I Walked In, Didn'T Notice A Step, Fell Down. We Left Right Away, Went To Er. Very Complicated Foot Injury - Many Fractures, Surgery Is Scheduled, Recovery Period Is A Half A Year Min. Can We File A Personal Injury Claim? What Are Our Chances And For How Much?
Thank You In Advance.
The only coverage you will qualify for is Medical Payments coverage. Most homeowners policies provide this up to about 5000. It pays when someone (who is not a resident of your household) is injured on your property regardless of fault. It pays for medical bills only - not pain/suffering - not lost wages.
Most likely you will not qualify for a claim under the liability coverage. In order to have a valid claim under this coverage- the home owner has to have been negligent. Their negligence has to have been the cause of the accident. From what you describe, that is not the case here.
Just because you were on their property when you got hurt does not mean they owe all your medical bills/wages or pain and suffering. It does not mean you will get a big pay day. This is a very common and erroneous misconception. Even though you were on their property - in order to get paid for pain/suffering/all medical bills etc - the property owners negligence has to have been the cause of your injury.
Any time a claim is filed - there is the possibility of a rate increase. They would have to speak to their agent regarding that.
Types Of Lawyers?
I Am Only A Freshman In High School And I Was Just Wondering About My Future. I Would Like To Become A Lawyer/Attorney Or Maybe Even A Sports Agent. I Was Wondering What Type Of Education You Need (Years Of Undergrad., And Grad. School) And Also What You Need To Study. If Anyone Is A Lawyer, Can You Give Me Advice On Becoming A Lawyer And Also What The Job Is Like.
In order to become a lawyer you will need to graduate from high school, graduate from a college/university (4 years) and then graduate from an ABA acredited law school (3 years). Once you have done all that, you will need to take the Bar Examination which tests you on both state and federal law. A good place to begin research about law as a career is the Amercian Bar Association's web site at www.abanet.org
I suggest that you get a good foundation in business skills in high school and college. The profession of law is also a business and if you decide to work for yourself you will need business skills. Because you will be doing a lot of reading in law school and as a lawyer you may want to take a course that helps you increase your reading time and retention. Every industry uses lawyers so you should concentrate on subjects you like. In Chicago one of the biggest firms that represent professional sports people is a law firm.
The job of being a lawyer is varied. You can work for a law firm or for a corporation as a lawyer. If you work for a big firm you may only be assigned to one part of a big case. If you work for a corporation you probably will be involved with hiring and firing.
The positives of being a lawyer is that you have flexibility to work in many different executive jobs in a company and can start your own firm. Some of the negative of being a lawyer is that you will be putting in long hours no matter where you work, clients will refuse to pay you because of the totally wrong perception that you have money, and you will be disrespected by the public who judge the profession by a few bad apples.
Good luck to you!

Ex-Husband Filed Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, What Happens To My Alimony?
Just Received A Copy In The Mail That Lists Me As A Creditor. But,He Is Also Being Sued For $350,000 From A Car Accident A Year Ago. They Are Also Listed. He Is Unemployed And Has Very Little Assets. Could Anyone Direct Me As To What I Need To Do?
Alimony cannot be changed or discharged in bankruptcy; you don't need to do anything. To change alimony, he has to go back to family law court.
He has to list you as a creditor, even though the debt is not discharged. That doesn't mean he is trying to eliminate your alimony, it only means that he is (correctly) disclosing and notifying all of his creditors.
Nearly all consumer bankruptcy attorneys offer free consultations. Take advantage of this to meet with one and get advice based on all of the details of your particular situation. You can find a referral at NACBA.org (National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys).
What Is The Criminal Law For Harassment Cases ?
A Da Is Appealing A Criminal Law Of Harassment - What Is That, Anybody Know ?
Harassment is a very broad charge. It can include physical contact , unwanted, with another, repeated phone calls or calls at inconvenient hours, following a person around, unwanted, or acting in a lewd or lacivious manner either to or about others or even inappropriate drawings or caricatures of others unwanted. It can be a very subjective crime, open to interpretation by the judge, or even the police officer who may have to initiate the charge. If a case is already found and under appeal, you're getting into the realm of lawyers as the best spoken or articulate actors will probably win the case.
Question On Divorce And Custody?
Why Is It Some Men Threaten Of Custodial Battle When Their Wives Bring Up Divorce? What Are The Odds Of Them Getting The Kids??
Adults can behave like kids at times too. It's sort of like the one thing they can hold over your head. No one likes to lose and the sad part about it is that when couples divorce, they get competitive and stop looking out for the best interest of the kids. The divorce becomes a competition on who can hurt the other the most. I say don't give into the pettiness, and ignore the threats. Don't stoop down to this childish level.
