Distribution Of Proceeds Of Wrongful Death Lawsuit?
I Am Currently Involved In A Wrongful Death Lawsuit Againsts A Company, For The Death Of My Father. I Am The Sole Personal Representative Of The Estate, But I Am Married With Children And I Have An Older Sister. At The Time Of The Death, I Divided The Assetts According To The Will. If The Lawsuit Awards Or Settles In The Estate'S Behalf, Am I Required To Revert Back To The Will For Distribution Of Assetts Or Is This A Separate Matter?
Can My Sister Consent To A Different Distribution As She Is Disabled And Has Unrelated Judgements Pending Against Her.
I Would Care For Her Needs From My Greater Distribution,But I Am Not Her Guardian.
This is a legally technical question which should be answered by an attorney familiar with your case and with your sister's situation. Go back to the attorney who originally handled the estate (or you could ask the attorney handling the wrongful death lawsuit if their are experienced in estate law). He/She should be able to answer your questions. Perhaps some kind of trust can be set up to protect her potential share.
I'm not an attorney and this is not legal advice. It's just my humble opinion....
How Do I Find A Qualified Medical Malpractice Attorney?
The American Trial Lawyers Association (ATLA) or your state's Trial Lawyers Association (e.g. California Trial Lawyers Assoc. or Kansas Trial Lawyers Assoc.) should be able to give you the names of good medical malpractice attorneys in your area.
How Negotiable Is The Contingency Fee For A Potentially Major Malpractice Case?
From What I Read The Settlement Amount Varies Greatly ...If It Caused You To Get Surgery And If You Got A Certain Illness From It.. .....I'Ve Also Read Only A Few Cases Has Been Settled Out Of Thousands But Then Again It Depends On The Diagnosis And If You Got Surgery From It...I Believe That'S Crucial For This Case...
There are a lot of factors involved and this link is good to explain.
this link may apply in regards to being settled out?
The key is, will you be successful or not. Just because you believe there was medical malpractice does not mean that it is. Have you talked to 1 lawyer or several? If you have talked to at least 2 lawyers who want to take your case, then most likely is valid, but if couple appear not interested, then maybe that you would lose and they know it, so should move on.
I suggest you bring a friend with you and with pen/paper sit down and discuss the fees, options, and what the expectations are with each lawyer you interview. Then the both of you can review what the lawyer/s stated and then make a decision.
Question For Lawyers Who Practice Civil Law?
What Do You Enjoy Most About Your Profession, And What Do You Like Least About Your Profession?
Least? Lack of job security - there are no available jobs in this field.
Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are in a World-wide Recession. Consider career paths that have available jobs.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This is just not a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many reasons. Many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. are being laid off left and right in this vocational field.
Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with degrees from traditional colleges/universities. Those "certificates" you see advertised aren't worth the paper they are printed on - they are generally scams. (I found this out the hard way.)
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+.
Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Even if you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking, many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid <<this would be your competition. And the competition is fierce!!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just saturated with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will lie to you. The root of the problem is we have too many law schools. We are in a recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............Remember: law schools are BUSINESSES - their top concern is making money for themselves.
If you don't believe me, then just do a search here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law. Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about job availability in the field of Law..................
In the book "So You Want to be a Lawyer?" by Marianne Calabrese and Susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1): "The United States has more lawyers than any other country in the world. About 38,000 students graduate >each year< from the 200+ law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients." - Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.s. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers. (9/14/2008)

If you want a job when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of >>>Healthcare or Information Technology! I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job availability! and scholarships!

Is My Personal Injury Award Public Record?
How Can I Find Out If My Personal Injury Settlement Is Public Record, Where Anyone Can Find Out About It, Or If It Is Confidential And Permanently Sealed? I Certainly Hope It Is Sealed Because These Days It Seems Like Everybody Knows Everything About Every Person, And These Things Should Not Be Public Knowledge.
There are EXACTLY 3 possibilities.
1. You settled out of court and the settlement contains a confidentiality agreement.
2. The judge ordered the record sealed. You would know if they did.
3. The award is public record.
