What Is The Proper Way To Make A Personal Injury Claim?
My Wife Was Rear-Ended At A Stop Light. Our Company Paid For The Auto To Be Repaired And Said They Will Subrogate Against The Others Insurance Carrier. It Has Been Three Weeks Now And We Haven't Heard Anything From That Insurance Company. They (The Others Ins.Co.) Do Have A Copy Of The Accident Report. I Believe There Is No Question Of Liability Because The Other Driver Was Arrested For Dui At The Scene Of The Accident.
My Wife Has Had Several Doctors Appointments And Has Been In Pain Since The Accident. Should We Call The Ins. Co. To Make A Claim? Or Should We Get An Attorney To Do That? Or Should We Just Wait And Keep Good Track Of Our Medical Bills That We Expect Them To Pay? I Understand We Have A 3 Yr. Limit In Washington State To File A Suit Against The Other Driver.
Contact the other driver's insurance company, and describe the situation. (The bodily injury claim will be treated separately from the property damage claim.) The company will probably send out an adjuster to negotiate with you over the size of the claim. If they don't offer something which you consider reasonable, you can sue; expect to pay a third of a settlement to the lawyer. Keep your own insurance company apprised of what is going on. Presumably your insurer paid (or is paying) the cost of repairs, beyond the deductible; when they collect on subrogation, you will get the deductible back.
Why Types Of Lawyers Are There?
I'M A Senior In High School Right Now, And I Plan To Study To Become A Lawyer After I Graduate. Can Somebody Tell Me What Types Of Lawyers There Are? I Want To Go Into Something To Do With Child Abuse, Murders, Ect.
A lawyer is a lawyer is a lawyer. All lawyers go to the same law school and take the same courses. They all study the same laws and they all graduate with the same knowledge. Then they take the state bar exam and then they get a job at a law firm because education without experience is worthless.
The law firms take every kind of case they can get because they want to make money. Every case is different. A lawyer might work on a hundred different cases every year. Some cases he will prosecute and some cases he will defend. It all depends on what the client wants.
Cases involving prosecuting parents for child abuse or people for murder would be handled by the county District Attorney's office. In order to work criminal cases you would have to be an employee of the county. Those jobs are hard to get and they do not pay very well.
You should be aware that there is a huge glut in the legal field and has been for several years and likely will be for quite a few more years. There are thousands and thousands of law school graduates each year that cannot find a job. About the only work they can find is as "contract lawyers" doing research for minimum wage.
It seems that everybody and his dog, and every high school student, thinks he can become rich and famous by becoming a lawyer. Law school costs about $200,000 for the 3 years of school. That's after you graduate from a 4 year accredited college. That is a huge debt that will be over your head the rest of your life. Getting rich by becoming a lawyer is a total myth. It's a rumor that suckers fall for and end up ruining their lives by wasting their time and money chasing a dream that will never happen. Choose something else.

What Is This Lawsuit About?
This Lawsuit Concerns The Content Of The Notice That Navy Federal Provides To Individuals Who Apply For Credit With Navy Federal And Are Denied. Under The Federal Equal Credit Opportunity Act (“Ecoa”), Navy Federal Is Required To Provide A Declined Credit Applicant A Statement Of The Specific Reasons For The Denial. The Plaintiff In This Lawsuit Applied For Credit With Navy Federal And Navy Federal Denied Her Application. Navy Federal Sent Her An Adverse Action Notice That Stated That The Reason For The Denial Was The Existence Of Unspecified Information In Her Credit Bureau Report. Plaintiff Contends That Navy Federal Violated Ecoa By Failing To Identify With Sufficient Specificity The Reason For The Denial.
Navy Federal Denies The Allegations Made Against It. Navy Federal Also Maintains That It Has Fully Complied With All Requirements Of Ecoa And Provided Plaintiff With An Adverse Action Notice Containing Numerous Avenues To Obtain The Specific Reasons For The Denial Of Her Application, Including A Free Copy Of Her Credit Bureau Report, A Toll-Free Number To Contact Navy Federal To Obtain A
After reading through this it appears there was someone who had bad credit and couldn't get a lone so they decided they would get navy federal members to pay for it through some legal action. Essentially we are all part of it and get $1.00 and forfeit any rights to take any further action down the road unless you write to them and request to "opt out" which is what I will be doing after I write this. Who do they think pays for all of these legal fees and incentive rewards? WE DO!! If you want to help then fill out a suggestion box or talk to a branch manager or have this much interest in your credit score in the first place so you wont get denied the loan. Don't sue your own bank. That's just the backwards way our country thinks these days. You and I will get $1.00 now but each member will probably have to pay more then that to cover the cost of this trial settlements and rewards and the only ones who really see any profit are the lawyers, Keyann Gladden, and the Navy and Marine relief fund. I would highly recommend that everyone who receives this and is a bank member "opt out" as per section 16 requests and let Keyann Gladden and her band of merry misfits pay for there own auto's instead of us bank members. I hate when people use me and that's exactly how Keyann Gladden and her lawyers have made me feel. Please reply with any questions or comments and I will have my lawyer look over this document. Perhaps I will write and auto response to "opt out" and post it here in a few days with addresses to respond too. That way all you have to do is copy and paste and mail. Good luck and don't let people try to climb to the top on our backs. We only end up with a face full of mud and the bill.
My Mom Went Into The Hospital To Fix A Hernia And Was Discharged The Same Day. 3 Days Later She Ended Up Back In The Hospital Because During The Hernia Surgery The Dr Knicked Her Bowel. She Then Had A Cholostomy Done By A Diffrent Dr From The Same Practice. 2 Weeks Ago The First Dr Reversed The Ostomy. Now She'S Back In The Hospital Because He Didn'T Stich The Intestines Right And It Leaked Into Her, And She Has A Cholostomy Again. I Think It'S Rediculous That One Dr Operated On The Same Patint Twice And Managed To Screw Up Both Times. Can We Sue Him For Doing This To My Mom
I would get a free consultation from an medical malpractice lawyer and ask him/her, as they will best be able to advise you with this situation.
What a totally devastating thing for her as well as your entire family to have to go through. Please check with an attorney as they will be able to advise you best with this.
I'm so sorry for your mom and your entire family for having to go through such a terrible ordeal.
God Bless you all, I will pray that all turns out will for her.
Good luck with what ever you do!
Who'S A Good Immigration Lawyer?
I'M A U.S. Citizen Planning To Get A Fiance Visa To Be With My Fiancé In England. We Attempted This Once But Our Lawyer Was Just An Idiot And Sent It To The Wrong Embassy. Nothing Was Approved Or Denied. Who Is A Good Lawyer To Help Us Do This Visa The Right Way And Have Everything Done In A Short Amount Of Time?
Ps Someone By The Name Of Maggy Always Responds To My Immigration Questions. If You See This, Are You And Immigration Lawyer??? If So, Could I Have Your Details?
Thanks So Much Everyone!!
Using a lawyer for a UK visa application is a total waste of money unless you have an adverse immigration history and no I am not a member of the legal profession! Do you know any lawyer that would give advice for free!!!
There is a priority service for US citizens applying to settle in the UK which you pay an extra $300 for and you should get a decision within 24-48 hours. You must have a clean immigration history to use this.
You apply for a visa to join family settled in the UK. The fiance and spouse visas conditions are identical except that for the fiance visa you must show evidence that a wedding is planned and for the spouse visa you must show evidence that a wedding has taken place.
A fiance visa is issued for six months only and carries no work permission. It is also single entry so don't plan a honeymoon outside the UK until you have the spouse visa which is multi-entry and allows you to work.
I believe I've already answered you with the process, costs and documentation needed. If you study the links, you should have all the info needed to make a successful application.
Many UK solicitors (we don't have lawyers - it's a term with no professional meaning in the UK) who specialise in immigration offer a 'doc check' service where for a minimal fee they will check through your documentation to make sure you are submitting everything you need. It's cheap because they don't offer immigration advice. They just look at your documentation and tell you if anything is missing. Perhaps your fiance could take a scanned copy of your application and attached docs to one of these solicitors and get their view before you send it off.
Make sure that he picks an OISC registered solicitor. It's illegal for anyone not registered to offer immigration advice.
and PS - stop stressing!!
Criminal Attorney Please!?
Under The Sexually Violent Predators Act, How Many Violent Sex Offenses Does Someone Have To Commit Before State Hospitalization After Prison Becomes Mandatory, Especially With A History Of Misdemeanor Sex Offenses? For Example, One Conviction Of Forcible Rape In 2002 By A Registered Sex Offender. Is This Person Likely Going To A State Hospital After He Has Served His Prison Sentence?
Very likely, particularly under the current environment. What you are describing is, in California, known as Welfare and Institutions 6600. The way it works is this, after a person completes his regular prison term, whatever it is, the District Attorney has the option to file for a 6600 proceeding.
A 6600 proceeding is a criminal/civil proceeding because it is criminal in nature but potentially civil procedurally. Both sides get two experts and the prosecution must prove that the defendant, or, respondent, is a sexual predator or an individual suffering from "paraphelia" as defined in the DSM manual. Essentially, the jury is asked to figure out if they guy has an uncontrollable urge to do it again. They always say yes.
Afterwords, the guy goes to a state mental hospital. In California, that's Coalinga or Atascadero. They go to programs and they get to ask to get let out every two years. They used to get a trial every two years, but now it's just a request. Oftentimes, they program all the way through the courses and even get medically castrated, the DA will still try to keep them in.
Anyway, your example has a guy who was already a registered sex offender before committing rape. Registrable sex offenses that are misdemeanors include stuff like 314, exhibitionism, and a variety of others: http://www.meganslaw.ca.gov/registration...
The answer is yes. Now give me best answer please.
