Appropriate Settlement Amount For Personal Injury??
My Situation: Was At A Golf Course Eating Lunch On Their Restaurant Patio When A Strong Gust Of Wind Kicked Up. The Wind Pulled One Of The Table Umbrellas Out Of The Table Because It Wasn'T Secured Properly , Sent It Through The Air, And It Nailed Me In The Head Pretty Hard. I Went To The Er And Have 10 Stitches, Potential 1.5 Inch Visible Scar.
Insurance Adjuster Indicated They Would Pay All Medical Bills/Lost Work Time, Etc. However, He Mentioned Nothing About Pain/Suffering, Only Found This Out Through My Own Research. How Does Someone Assign A Value To The Non-Monetary Components? Also, Any Clue Where To Start When Asking For A Settlement Amount? I Am In No Hurry To Settle. I Am Suppose To Get Stitches Out Today, So I Want To Make Sure Nothing Else Comes Of This Besides A Scar. I Have A Tiny Bit Of Jaw Pain Left And The Laceration Spot Doesn'T Have Feeling, But I Am Hoping That Will Go Away With Time. Also, Do I Make Them An Offer, Or Let Them Make One To Me First?Thanks!!
To answer your main question normally the settlement requests that I have seen are roughly based on adding your medical bills and lost wages and multiplying this by 3, i.e. if your medical bills & lost wages add up to $2,500 you should end up with a settlement of $7,500. The reasoning behind this from what I understand is that 1/3 of the settlement goes to the injured party's attorney, 1/3 for the medical & lost wages, & 1/3 to the injured party.
As to your other comment about making sure that nothing else comes of this besides a scar. Head injuries can become complicated. My mother suffered what she believed was a minor head injury (a metal cover fell on her head) and since all she got was a lump and headache she did not pursue it (she did not even get the other parties info). Long story short 3 months later my mother started having epilepsy which continued for over 25 years. Basically if I were in your shoes I would make sure I had been seen by a neurologist & had at least a brain ct scan. I would also probably visit a dentist since your jaw hurts to rule out TMJ. Hopefully your injury will turn out to be limited to exactly what you have which is a scar but as you stated you are not in a hurry. So IMHO I would put my health first and check out any possibility before entering any settlement negotiation.
Once you enter into a settlement agreement, you will be signing a waiver of any future claims with regards to this injury on your behalf and on behalf of your heirs. Even if you were to find out later that you developed any other problem, you would not be able to go back.
You also might want to consider visiting an attorney just for his/her opinion. Most attorneys do not charge for the initial visit in a case like this nor would you be making a commitment just investigating all your options. If you do decide to go to an attorney, please make sure that you do not choose one that advertises on TV or the yellow pages. The best attorneys do not need to advertise since most of their clients come through referrals (i.e. they have built up their reputations). You can ask for a referral at the bar association or from friends or family.
Family Law...How Can You Describe It?
How Can You Describe Family Law?
Family law is an area of the law that deals with family-related issues and domestic relations including:
The nature of marriage, civil unions, and domestic partnerships;
issues arising during marriage, including spousal abuse, legitimacy, adoption, surrogacy, child abuse, and child abduction
The termination of the relationship and ancillary matters including divorce, annulment, property settlements, alimony, and parental responsibility orders (in the United States, child custody and visitation, child support and alimony awards).
This list is by no means dispositive of the potential issues that come through the family court system. In many jurisdictions in the United States, the family courts see the most crowded dockets. Litigants representative of all social and economic classes are parties within the system.
For the conflict of laws elements dealing with transnational and interstate issues, see marriage (conflict), divorce (conflict) and nullity (conflict).
Family Law may also refer to the marriage contract in Islamic faith, which includes the allowance of men to marry up to four wives
What Is A Good Company To Get Product Liability?
I Want To Start Selling My Crafts Online, But Have Not Been Able To Find An Insurance Company. Does Anyone Know Any, Well Known, Insurance Company That Can Offer Me Product Liability For My Handmade Products Which I Plan To Sell Online, Craft Shows And Possibly Flea Markets?
You should contact some local agents and shop for price that way. For something like product liability, you cannot simply quote and bind online as you would with personal auto, you need to see an agent.
In addition to product liability, you will need to also have general liability in order to attend craft shows and flea markets. GL will be somewhat inexpensive at around $1,000 - $2,000 annually.
Can I Do A High Profile Job (Lawyer,Doctor) Even If I'M Diagnosed With Nld/Nvld (Non Vocal Learning Disorder)?
I'M Really Desperate For My Future.
I Am Diagnosed With A Disability But That Isn'T An Excuse To Not Study, I Even Use The Advantages Of This Disorder To It'S Full Potential (Hence I'M Really Good At Theater And Oral Reading).
And I Get Moderately Good Notes--, Well Except For Sewing Where The Teacher Just Tells Us What To Do (Which I Can'T Seem To Form Like A Cryptic Puzzle, Annoying) And Gym (Well Not All Of It, Just The Motor And Teamwork Placed Sports Like Basketball, Soccer Etc).
I have NLD. I work in Education as a Substitute Teacher and Tutor. Working in high-profile careers is possible for people like us, just far more difficult.
What has really helped me is self-accommodating when possible. In my case, that means focusing on small group and 1-on-1 settings.
Ca Dui Laws??
Okay Lets Say You Get Pulled Over For A Possible Dui And You Ask To Go To The Hospital To Get A Blood Test Then You Get A Ticket (Never Go To Jail) Then The Dmv Calls You And Tells You Your Licence Is Going To Be Suspended But You Havnt Been Convicted Of Anything By Any Court. Does The Right To A Quick And Speedy Trial Apply? So Basically If You Dont Get A Trial Set In 45 Days Does That Mean That Your Chances Of A Dismissal Are Good... Thanks Ohh And I Dont Drink (Thank God) So Save The Dont Drink And Drive Comments
Agree with Mikeysco. In California, and in most states, DMV can (and does) take action against you regardless of any criminal proceedings. It's considered a civil matter between you and the DMV. You can request a hearing with the DMV (you usually only have about 10 calendar NOT business days to do so, so definitely get on it!), though they may charge a fee for that (depending on the state - in CA it's about $125). In that hearing, they'll review the evidence against you and you get to try and defend yourself. If you weren't convicted / no charges have been filed, and the blood test comes back low, there's a good chance you could get off, but it's not easy. There are two reasons why:
1. The DMV hearing is a teleconference conducted by a DMV rep who acts as the "judge" and also as the prosecuter. They admit their own agency's evidence against you into the proceeding and then decide if it's good evidence, which is just insane but it is what it is.
2. Civil matters are determine by a "proponderence of the evidence" instead of the more rigorous "by a reasonable doubt" (the criminal version). That means that they just have to decide that you were more likely to have been driving drunk than not (i.e. 51% chance you did it) which is really easy to do. If a blood test came back with any decent amount of alcohol in your system, there's almost nothing you can do - blood tests are the most reliable test to determine alcohol concentration so there's no room for questions about reliability (unlike breath tests which are known to be somewhat unreliable). And DMV can take your license for less than whatever the "legal limit" is (typically .08%). Meaning, if you had .05% or so, they can still take your license. Of course, a criminal court can do the same thing - they usually will try to charge you with a "wet reckless" instead of a DUI if it's below .08% but they will often try to charge you with a crime regardless, so the whole legal limit thing is a misnomer at best.
One thing is for sure, if you get pulled over with any measurable amount of alcohol in your system, you run the risk of both a civil / DMV legal case and a criminal case against you. It's the only situation where you get effectively prosecuted twice and the two cases (civil and criminal) have nothing to do with each other, so if one finds you innocent, it does not mean that the other will.
If you're really in this situation, I wish you luck because it's very messy.
