Personal Injury Claims............................?
How Do I Benefit By Choosing A Lawyer Who Specializes In Personal Injury Claims?
ALL lawyers specialize in personal injury claims, since they are easy. 95% of them, NEVER go to court. The lawyer sends a letter to the insurance company and states they are representing you. Most settlements are done by telephone or mail, then when you settle, they will take anywhere from 1/3 to 40% of YOUR settlement.
IF, the insurance company does not dispute fault, and if your injury is minor, like whiplash, trip to the ER, and follow up treatment, then no need for ANY lawyer.
But, if insurance disputes, or questions your injuries, or, if you have serious injuries, which means surgery, scarring, broken bones etc, you "might" need a lawyer.
Remember, the insurance company does not pay the lawyer, YOU DO from your settlement.
The insurance adjuster will handle your claim with or w/out a lawyer. The value of your settlement is based on the injuries........period.

I Want Loads Of Information On Becoming A Lawyer?
From What To Study At Collage And Them Do You Go Straghy To Study Law At Uni? Is It A Good Career To Pursue? What Are The Starting Salaries? Could I Move To The Usa And Be One?
You are confused. You would only study a collage if you are an art lover. Also, I really can't figure out what you mean by "straghy". Typically you first need to master grammar in order to become a lawyer. Lawyers need to be able to write legal documents.
Visitations Rights.. States?
Okay, Im 17 Almost 18 And I Have A 1 Month Old Baby Girl. And The Father That Left Me When I Was 2 Months Pregnant. He Now Lives In Texas And I Live In Maine And Threwout My Pregnancy He Didn'T Call Me To Ask How The Baby Is Doing, Or Anything, He Wasnt There For The Birth And He Hasnt Bought Her Anything At All. But All Of A Sudden He Is Going To Do Visitation Were He Can Take Her To Texas.
But Can He Take Her All The Way Down There, Cuz I Live In Maine And He Lives In Texas?
Im So Worried Because Ive Been A Single Parent Threwout My Pregnancy And Now. And He Hasnt Helped Or Anything Still Doesnt Ask How She Is Doing. He Just Wants To Do This To Me Cuz He Knows I Love Her Soo Much, It Pisses Me Off!! So Can He Do That?????
If you have been awarded custody by Family Court, or any court of law for that matter, he can't take the child out of state for visitation.
I would contact Child Protective Services, Family Court or the equivalent legal body that you have in Maine BEFORE he gets there to get a supervised visitation scheduled. That way, a child advocate will have to be present & if he attempts to do anything illegal (remove the child from the state of Maine for example) or in violation of the visitation guidelines, he will be arrested.
If he has had no contact since before the child's birth, has showed no interest since the birth, under NO CIRCUMSTANCES allow him to be left alone since apparently he has stated that he plans on taking the child back to Texas on his visitation. If he does that, you will probably never see your child again, he can make up a story with an attorney to make you look like an unfit mother & convincing the court to award him custody & force you to pay him child support.
Or worse case scenario, he could skip across the border into Mexico & go on the run with the child. I don't want to scare you, but I don't want you to leave yourself in a helpless position where he basically steals your child using only the fact that he is the biological father & nothing else.
Why The Hate For Lawyers?
I Am A First Year Law Student. Lawyers Seem To Be The Folks Everyone Loves To Hate. Joke Books Abound About Them. So That I Can Empathize With My Future Clients...Why All The Hate For Lawyers?
Thanks In Advance :)
Several reasons. One, they often represent criminals accused of horrible crimes, and do their best to get them acquitted. While doing so is essential to a just legal system, people often blame the lawyers for doing "too good a job."
Second, many of them really do make a ton of money off of the misfortunes of other people. Chemical plant leaks and gives hundreds of people cancer? Yippee, a tort lawyer's gold mine. You get the picture :)
My father's a lawyer, and a couple of my best friends are. I know a lot of them. By and large, they're highly ethical, honest, hard-working, and very intelligent people. But there are still an awful lot of lawyers out there that aren't ethical at all, and will do anything for money...that's true in any profession, but lawyers who do that are often quite visible in society :)
Good luck with your studies.
If A Home Is Left In Awill, And The Deed Is In Trust To Someone Can It Be Taken Away?
As an attorney practicing in Michigan, I can only tell you what I'd otherwise tell a Michigan resident. Which is: once the deed to the house is drafted and filed with the Register of Deeds, then the house is owned by the trust. Now, usually a trust is set-up as what is called a "Revocable Living Trust". The purpose of this trust is so that you can avoid probate and (typically) tax burdens on the receipient of the home.
You, as the Trustee of the Trust, have the ability to deed things in and out of the trust. Once you die, however, your successor trustee steps in and takes your place...with all the same rights as you had when you were alive (save any specific requirements as per the trust).
Therefore, once the Trust becomes the "owner" of the home, any subsequent will (with regard to the house) is unenforceable since you didn't own the house at the time you're attempting to give it away--the trust did. The problem, however, is that the person named in the will to get the house will probably contest that Trust provision of the house because the will was made AFTER the trust. Therefore, the devisee of the house will argue that the fact the will was made after the trust was drafted, it clearly shows an intent by the owner that he was revoking the provision in the trust as to who the beneficiary to the house is, and instead, is leaving the house to the person named in the will.
On the other hand, the successor trustee is going to argue that the person who created the trust and had the house put in the trusts name couldn't give the house away via a will because the house was now owned by the trust itself. Therefore, any will (even if subsequent to the trust) attempting to give away the house will fail because the testator didn't have possesion of the house to the extent that he had a divisible interest.
Whew, not an easy question you asked! =D
