Hit By Car Riding My Bike, Obtain Compensation Through Insurance Or Personal Injury Lawyer?
I Was Riding My Bike And A Lady T-Boned Me On My Ride Side. I Flew Up On The Hood Of The Car And Flew To The Pavement. I Had Roadrash, Brusing, And A Concussion. No Broken Bones. She Was 100% At Fault According To The Police Report. She Was Also Driving With A Suspended License. How Should I Go About Obtaining Compensation? Through The Insurance Company Or Through A Personal Lawyer? I Would Just Like Money To Cover Medical Bills And The Bike, Anything Extra Would Be A Bonus. Which Is The Best Option? With A Lawyer I Would Have To Pay Out 30% With Less Hassle. With Insurance, I Would Have To Deal With It Myself But May End Up With More Money. Any One Have Experiences With This?
First, Pedro and another are incorrect. As long as you are entitles to comprensation (noting possible no-fault laws), you can most certainlly collect for medical bills and 'pain and suffering". No attorney or suit is required.
There are _many_ things that you need to consider... will you be getting Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage from anyone in your household or the driver's policy that hit you? If you live in a PIP state are you allowed to collect anything from the other driver based on your medical bills and injury? The drivers adjuster should be able to tell you this.
Also, does the other person actually have insurance? all insurance companies will drop someone's policy if they have a suspended lic (no point in insuring someone who cannot legally drive) and most people who feel that they can drive with a suspended lic., don't think they have to pay for insurance either (scum of the earth manage to get their lic suspended and drive anyway... why would you expect them to pay for insurance).
I could go on and on about this situation but I'll say this... you can obtain the service of an attorney _at any time_. Perhaps you want to hear what the adjuster can do for you and then determine if you want to pay an attorney 33% of the settlement (meaning, you'd have to think the carrier is going to pay 33% more then their final offer to you). That is, if you only had $500 in medical bills and the other carrier offered you $1000 to settle, do you really think an attorney could get you doubt that?
Lastly, if you are going to settle on your own, before you do, contact the medical providers and see of you can pay them a percentage of what they are charging. Don't mention what the settlement is. Many times the providers will take 50% or so of what they bill for as, we all know, their bills are inflated anyway.

Do I Need A Lawyer!!!!!!!!!!?
I Have A Case And Its Civil Regarding The Paternity Of My Child...My Ex Wants To Be Take Off Her Birth Certificate Due To A Online Bought Dna Test That Came Out He Is Not Her Father...So Now We Have A Civil Case...I Am A Single Mom With No Money What So Ever...Can I Defend Myself In This Case With Him...Even Though He Has A Lawyer?
If he isnt the father, you dont need a lawyer. He does.
If he IS the father, you dont need a lawyer either. Legal aid will probably help you. The Court is VERY hesitant to overturn parenthood because of the stigma on the child. The Court will probably order its own paternity test if the test taken turns out to be unreliable. Unless he clearly is not the father, he will not be relieved of responsibility.
But if he isnt the father, do the right thing. That's all I can say.

What Is A Trust Fund?
Who Can Have A Trust Fund And What Is It All About?
A trust fund, on the scale of this web site, is a pretty simple concept. You set aside money for someone else, it grows over a number of years (based on appreciation / depreciation and additional contributions) and at some point, the person receives the money. In Illinois, the beneficiary receives the money "free and clear" at the age of 21.
Each trust fund has a CUSTODIAN and a BENEFICIARY. The Custodian sets up the trust fund, makes contributions, and manages the investments. If you have withdrawals before the beneficiary takes over the money, the custodian determines how much of a withdrawal to make and if the purposes are valid given the objectives of the trust (i.e. pull money out to use for college tuition). Due to the fact that my nieces and nephews are young and we are just getting started, we haven't considered any withdrawals yet.
Each trust has a TRUSTEE. The trustee is a third party that holds the funds. Note the word "irrevocable" in the definition above - when you put the money in a trust and the trustee holds it, you can't change your mind later and get the money back out of it. Typical trustees are banks and investment institutions like Fidelity or Vanguard.
At some point the beneficiary takes over the fund and can do what they please with the proceeds. If the stakes are higher (i.e. lots of money), then people anguish over how to control the behavior of the beneficiary so that they don't "blow" the proceeds (i.e. spend it on a "bouncing car"). For our purposes, however, we are not going to put strings on what the beneficiary does with the money after it legally transfers over to them, because while the stakes are important, this much money won't fundamentally alter someone's life. Plus, a UGMA / UTMA account won't let you put any strings on it, anyways. The age of "termination" is the official definition of the date when the minor takes control.
Trust fund rules vary by state. Some states have something called a UTMA, as opposed to the UGMA in Illinois. The biggest difference is the age when the beneficiary takes over for the trustee, which is 21 in Illinois and 18 in other states. There are other differences but if your situation is that complex don't get advice from this site, see a lawyer :)
In summary, the key points are:
A TRUSTEE holds the securities (usually a bank or a brokerage house like Fidelity or Vanguard)
The CUSTODIAN sets up the trust, puts cash / investments into the trust, manages the investments, and decides whether or not to make withdrawals on behalf of the beneficiary
The custodian has a FIDUCIARY RESPONSIBILITY to manage the money in a prudent fashion for the beneficiary (i.e. don't invest in some crazy scheme)
Deposits in a trust are IRREVOCABLE and cannot be reversed if you change your mind later
The BENEFICIARY is the person who ultimately takes over the cash / investments that have been deposited in the trust. For the purposes of a UGMA / UTMA account, the beneficiary is always a minor
The AGE OF TERMINATION is when the minor takes over control of the trust - this varies by state, but is 21 in Illinois (it is 18 in other states)
What Exactly Is A Corporate Lawyers Job?
There are many types of corporate lawyers, so I will answer as broadly as possible. Typically, a corporate lawyer working at a law firm negotiates and drafts deal papers for clients. If a company wants to issue debt, for example, a corporate attorney would work with the banks and other parties to negotiate the terms of the deal and draft the necessary paperwork.
I just realized that the above description makes it sound more exciting that it is.
If you go to a good law school, a job at a top large law firm in a good market (like Manhattan) will earn you 140K+ your first year
