Should I Seek A Lawyer In A Slip And Fall?
I Recently Slipped On Some Water At The Store And Fell On My Hip Which Was Recently Replaced ( 2 Years Ago). As I Fell A Chip Rack Fell On Top Of Me Causing Some Major Bruising On My Arm. Ive Been In Pain For A Few Days Now, My Hip Was X Rayed And Looks To Not Be Broken. It Is Bruised And Possibly Torn Muscle. I Dont See The Ortho For A Few Days Yet. My Husband Has Already Missed Days Off Work And Ive Had To Pay For The X Ray And Doctor Visit. I Do Have Health Insurance But That Doesnt Cover Lost Wages For My Husband Or The Expensive Co Pays. I Am A Stay At Home Mom And Even Though I Dont Get Paid, Im Not Able To Properly Care For My Children As I Can Barely Walk. Im Not A Litigious Person But The Stores Insurance Company Is Calling And I Dont Want To Get Screwed Either?
Need To Know Info
1. Slipped On Water , Didnt Trip Or Cause Myself To Fall
2. Cashier Witnessed The Incident
3. Filled Out An Incident Report At The Store
What Should I Do??
A lawyers fee is usually 33% plus expenses of any settlement you get.
The insurance company does not add more to the settlement to cover the lawyers fee.
You decide to hire the attorney - so it becomes your job to pay him.
A claim is evaluated based on the injury itself. Having a lawyer does not make the claim worth more, just means a piece of the pie goes to him. So instead of the pie being divided by 2 ( you and the medical providers) it gets divided by 3 (you, medical providers and attorney). Just to break even - the attorney has to get 33-40% more than you could have gotten on your own.
So, you have to decide - is it worth giving 33-40% of any settlement you get to an attorney?
Or you could talk to the insurance company and see what they do. Feel them out. If you think that you can work it out with them great. If you feel like you can't and it's worth it to give a very large chunk of any settlement you get to an attorney -you can hire one at any time.
It's your choice if you want to hire an attorney or not. And it's your responsibility to pay him. So, if it's worth it to you to spend the money or give a large chunk of your settlement to an attorney - then hire one. Only you can decide what you want to do.
Hope you get better soon.
Child Custody Question..Need Advice From Experienced People?
My Children Are 6, 10, 12, 14 And 15. Their Father Moved Out In January And Right Now Our Custody Agreement Is Every Other Weekend. Since The Move Out He Has A &Quot;New&Quot; Family Now. A Woman And Her 3 Daughters. My Children No Longer Want To Be A Part Of Their Fathers Life Much To My Discouragement Because Of His Actions. I Dont Want It To Come To This But Legally Do I Stand A Chance If I Went For Full Custody With No Visitation Since They Do Not Want To Go? They Have Even Said They Would Go To Their Grandmothers (His Mom) Every Other Weekend As Long As She Was The One Taking Care Of Them And He Could Just Visit With Them But They Do Not Want To Be A Part Of This Woman And Her Childrens Life. I Could Go On Forever Explaining Why But Dont Want To Bore You With The Details. They Have Reason To Feel This Way And I Have Tried So Hard To Explain To Him Their Feelings But He Does Not Listen To What I Say And I Know Him After 17 Years Of Marriage To Know He Is Doing These Things Because He Thinks They Are Hurting Me And Does Not Realize He Is Hurting His Kids And Losing Them. I Dont Want Them To Feel Rejection From Him Anymore. He Has Them 5 Days A Month And I Have Them For 25. They Asked To See Him More And He Said, &Quot; I Need Time To Myself.&Quot; Yet When He Is With Them..He Says, &Quot; Daddy Wishes He Could See You More But It Is Just Not Possible.&Quot; He Has Been Offered Them 4 Weekends A Month And Chooses Not To. What Do I Do? Do I Make Them Go There?
I have a similar situation. He is being manipulative. Don't force the kids to go, but you should encourage them to go. That way he can never say you kept them from him. Never say anything unkind about him where the children can hear. They will figure it out. He will probably tell other people you won't let him see the kids. He may even tell them that. He really doesn't care about the kids. He wants to hurt you. The kids are his vehicle to carry that out. I know it is painful to see your children hurt. As hard as this may be, don't get angry with him. Anger gives him power. I still struggle with that. I also struggle with forgiveness, but you have time for that. He is a schmuck, and consider yourself lucky that he walked away to make someone else miserable.
Keep a journal, too. Write down the date and when he picked them up. If you asked him to take them, write it down. When he forgets to pick them up, write it down. On Father's Day or his birthday, write it down. Just a quick note, but write everything down. You will need it later on. Hang in there!
This May Vary From State To State, So If It Does, This Is In The State Of Pennsylvania.
Here'S The Situation. I Have A Friend Who Has Been Seperated For 5 Years. He Filed For A Divorce, But His Wife Refuses To Sign The Papers. He Has A New Girlfriend That He Has Been With For 3 Years, And He Wants To Marry Her, But He Can'T Because He Can'T Get His Divorce Finalized.
Is There Any Way Around This? If His Wife Keeps Refusing To Sign The Papers, Is There Some Type Of Law Or Statute That Says The Divorce Will Automatically Be Final After X Amount Of Time??
Ok..not up on Pennsylvania laws, and yes they do vary from state to state, but not that much.
So your friend filed a divorce petition? Was it served on the Wife? If so, did she file a response within the time frame allowed? If she didn't then he must simply note her in default and file a request for divorce. NOW that being said, if there are children or assets to be dealt with, there may have to be a formal hearing with respect to those matters...it is possible, however, to sever the divorce itself from Marital Property and child support and custody issues..which basically means that those matters are still open for argument at a later date, but your friend can get divorced and remarried.
How Can I Get A Shoplifting Felony Charge Dropped And Not Put On My Record?
I Was Charged With Shoplifting And Its My First Time Getting In Trouble So I Don'T Know What To Do Or What'S Going On. I Need To Know What To Do When I Have My Court Date And How To Get This Not Put On My Record.
Felony Shoplifting means you stole something over a certain value to make your crime a felony. Already your arrest is a part of your on-going record. If a "deal" is made with the prosecution to drop the charges completely, your record will remain clean. Whether you are convicted of a felony or a misdemeanor, your conviction will remain FOREVER.
And don't listen to rumors of getting a pardon later in life. It never happens for felons and will not happen in your case for a misdemeanor because you were charged with a felony, regardless if it is reduced to a misdemeanor in trial.
Your criminal convictions are a matter of public record and they never go away. You are about to be marked for life and labeled a criminal
What Are The Functions Of An Eviction Defense Attorney?
What Are They In Charge Of? I Heard They Were In Charge Of Something Called &Quot;Discovery&Quot; But I'M Not Exactly Sure What It Is. Does Anyone Know What It Is?
All litigation attorneys do discovery. This is the process by which a party to a lawsuit gathers information to support their case. This is done by:
1. Interrogatories: These are written questions you ask the other side to answer in writing
2. Depositions: This is a meeting where you ask a witness or the other side questions in person an under oath
3. Requests for documents: This is when you get documents from the other side that may be relevant to your case. You can also get documents from people who aren't in the lawsuit, but that requires a subpoena.
An eviction defense attorney does very limited discovery. These proceedings are very quick, so there isn't much time for discovery. In contrast, complex litigation can have discovery that takes years and includes hundreds of thousands of documents...
