How Do I Settle An Auto Accident Without A Lawyer? How Much Should I Expect?
One Year Ago I Was In An Auto Accident. My Friend Was Driving Apparently To Slow For The Driver Behind Us And Was We Started To Pull Into A Parking Lot They Decided To Speed Up And Try To Pass Us By Using The Sidewalk. We Were Hit At My Door And I Was Turned Looking At My Friend In The Back Seat. The Police Cited Her And Her Ins Has Accepted 100% Fault. I Went To The Er For Head (I Hit The Door Window) And Neck Pain And Fallowed Up With My Doc. Since Then I Have Had 3 Months Pt (He Said He Could Not Fix Me) And Still See The Chiro. I Had 2 Mri, Cat And Several X-Rays. I Was Placed On Medications Including: Valium, Percocet And Oxycodone Initially But After A Week Asked For Something Weaker And Went To Hydrocodone Which Still Left Me Sleepy So I Went To Ibfrofin 800, Meloxican And Skelaxin. Seen A Back Specialist Too. All Agree With My Doctor That My Si Joint Is Messed Up And My Chiro Put My Back At 20% Permanently Damaged And Will Need To See Him Once A Month Forever My Bills Are About 9,000. I Don'T Want A Lawyer To Take Money From My Pain So I Don'T Want To Have One. Now That It Has Been A Year And My Doctors Say I Am As Good As I Am Going To Get I Was To Settle. What Should I Do? Is There A Form I Can Give My Doctors To Fill Out?
Also I Was 12 Weeks Pregnant And Ended Up Having Him At 22 Weeks In Which He Died Right After Birth. With Everything That Happen The Month After And All The Medications Could This Have Been A Cause? My Doctor That Delivered Him Says He Can'T Tell Me The Reason I Went Into Early Labor. I Was On Seasonal And Didn'T Know I Was Pregnant Till 16 Weeks .
You have a serious claim, and some pretty serious damages. In the interest of full disclosure, I am a lawyer, but still you really should hire a lawyer. A decent lawyer should be able to get you more than you will be able to negotiate on your own, even taking into account the contingent fee, which for a case like this shouldn't be more than 35%.
The lawyer will investigate the reason for your baby's death and if it was caused by the accident, line up experts to prove that the accident was the cause. Lawyers also have access to databases that can tell them what damages were awarded in other cases like yours (including jury awards and settlements where the information is available). You theoretically could access that same information, but it costs $$ and frankly you need some training to know what you're looking for and where to find it.
If you are determined to go it alone, do some work to get your doctor's opinion on the extent and severity of your injuries, the amount of physical limitation you will experience going forward, possible future medical expenses, and possible causes of your baby's premature birth and death. Write detailed demand letters to the insurance company and attach copies of your evidence (medical bills and records relating to the items mentioned above). And ask for a lot. Just to give you an idea, if your chiro costs $100 per visit, and you need 12 visits per year for 35 years, that's 42k. And if the premature birth and death are causally related, you're talking about big damages.
Again, though, get a lawyer. Because this is a big $$ case potentially, they will either try to get out cheap (because you are not a lawyer, and they have a huge information advantage against you) or, if you try to hold out for a worthy settlement, they will defend vigorously and you will be in over your head. There are complexities to this I can't explain easily -- how insurance limits come into play, for example. Get a lawyer.
What Can I Do With A Law Degree Other Than Be A Trial Lawyer?
I'M About To Get My History Degree, And Law School Is Sounding More And More Appealing, But I Really Don'T Want To Be A Lawyer. What Else Can I Do With A Law Degree?
People will surely tell you that you can do anything with a law degree. In a way, they are right. But, you have to first pay your dues. Lawyers are authors, teachers, business executives, consultants, compliance officers, bankers, etc... But that is because most of them worked as lawyers first and then were introduced to something else, by working for those types of clients. Most lawyers are NOT trial lawyers. Even those that litigate rarely see court. Every business in the world needs lawyers, from setting up the business to rules and regulations to employment issues, to deals, to disputes.
Take it from this lawyer and any other you ask... you should not go to law school to do something else. You might end up doing something else, but that will be after a lot of hard work and money. Whatever else you want to do other than law, there is a better way to do it. One should only go to law school if they know exactly what type of law they want to practice. You don't. You don't even think you would like it. Why be miserable for 3 years, competing with people who love it, only to owe money and have to take a job you hate (law) or could have gotten otherwise?
Have You Ever Used Prepaid Legal Services? What Was Your Experience. ?
A Friend Of Mine Is Dealing With A Child Custody Issue And Considering Using Prepaid Legal Because They Can'T Afford The Retainer To Hire A Lawyer. I'M Just Curious If Anyone Has Ever Used These Services And Can Relate Their Experience.
I never used prepaid legal services because I recognized early on that the financial model is exactly the same as an early HMO. Experience with the HMO showed that when services were flat-rate and communal, the organization developed a culture of trying to get you in and out the door by expending the least amount of effort possible on your problem. Unless your prepaid legal service plan includes a financial incentive for them to work harder on cases that are non-trivial, you should adjust your expectations accordingly.
Does Anyone Know Where I Could Find A Pro Bono Family Law Lawyer In Orange County ,Calif.?
I Have A Difficult Child Support Case That I Need Legal Representation In Court. Instead Of The Typical Absenteee Dad Case Its The Absentee Mom Case.But Im The Typcial Absentee Mom Either.So If Anyone Can Help I Thank You In Advance
In most states Legal Aid is available for lower income parents who have small children and need a divorce, but it is based on your income so you may or may not qualify. If not, there aren't too many Attorneys that want to work pro bono cases especially in Family Law. You can always pull out the phone book and start calling to ask. Also contact your local welfare or Child protective services office and they may be able to recommend someone. Hope this helps....Good Luck =)

How Can You Tell If You'Ll Enjoy Being A Lawyer? (What Do Lawyers Do?)?
How Can I Tell If I'D Enjoy Being A Lawyer? I Love To Speak Out My Opinion, Persuading Others, And Have A Strong Sense For What Is Right..
You will never know for sure, until you actually do what lawyers do. There is no substitute for actual experience. That said, there are many different types of lawyers. Trial lawyers don't live the life you see on TV or in the movies. There are corporate lawyers, and regulatory lawyers and sports agent lawyers and real estate lawyers and Estate lawyers and . . . . . Well, you get the idea.
Decide what you want to do. Having a strong sense of right and wrong can be good, or it can be a curse. If you work in a firm, you may have no say over the types of cases you handle. You may have to represent or defend people to whom you are morally opposed. The vast majority of lawyers are solo practitioners, because of their entrepreneurial spirit and their fierce independence. At the same time, many of them are starving, because people think that all lawyers are rich, so you won't miss my fee. The 13th Amendment (abolishing slavery) also does not seem to apply to lawyers. You can be compelled by a court to continue with representation for someone who is not paying you.
