Car Accident; Back Injury Claims?
I Was In An Accident About A Month Ago. I Rear-Ended Some Guy'S Car. He Didnt Want To Call The Police Or The Insurance Company. He Said It Wasnt A Big Deal, The Car Was Old Anyways, The Damage Was Minor. We Exchanged Phone Numbers And Agreed To Call Each Other Later And Come Up With A Settlement. He Asked For A Sum Of 300 Dollars And Every Time I Went To Give It To Him, He Wouldnt Want To Meet. So I Stopped Calling, About Three Weeks Later I Get A Letter Saying That He'S Taking Me To Court Cuz Of Back Injury. Can He Make A Case With No Police Report? Should I Notify My Insurance Company? What Should I Do? What Do You Think Might Happen, Can He Really Sue Me For Thousands Of Dollars? Please Give Me Advice I Would Appreciate It.
Well, gosh. The only reason someone like him would get an attorney is to try and threaten you. That's like him trying to sic a pit bull on you. But here's the good news. Personal injury attorneys that would take his case? They're total pushovers.
So, here's what you do.
#1. No one's going to court anytime soon.
If YOU did not report the accident to your insurance company. Pick up the phone and do it now. (Apologizing for a late report is not going to make things any better.) The sooner you get it reported the better. Even IF you had insurance for the date of loss - if you, by your actions, have prejudiced the carrier's ability to handle the claim.....Guess what? They can deny coverage. ooops. You don't want that so...get on the horn.
Now.....when you said you got a letter saying he's taking you to court.......things really are NOT that simple as far as court is concerned. There are filings that have to be done, approvals that need signed, docket scheduling...... and certainly you know - public officials move slower than dirt. And that's just the court part.
In a suit? Suit has to be filed, answered, interrogatories have to be served/answered, discovery has to be served, depositions....
Do ya really think someone wants to go through all that for a simple back injury? This close to the accident?
Like I said - getting an attorney after you is a bullying technique. They want you to get scared.
Hold your poise! No shaking in yer boots, ok ?
Get it reported to your insurance company (keep your fingers crossed coverage will be in order) and let them sic their injury adjusters on the attorney. He will have to WORK for the money he is trying to rip off the other guy for.
Ok, so.....you're calling your insurance company now, right?
It doesn't sound like you need an attorney right now. If you do - and your insurance is in order - your insurance company will provide a defense for you.
Oh - and make a police report. Better late than never. (Btw - that is a requirement of your policy. Shhhhhhh)
What Justification For Requiring Witness In Court To Swear Or Affirm Their Answers Are Truthful?
Yet Attorneys And Law Enforcement In The Field Are Not Held To The Same Standard. Which Allows Twisted Theories To Be Presented As Factual Evidence, And Exculpatory Details Exonerating A Defendant To Be Undisclosed To The Court.
All witnesses, including attorneys and law enforcement, are required to swear or affirm to tell the truth when testifying in court or in depositions.
Theories are not evidence, but may be included in the prosecutor's or defense attorney's arguments.
Exculpatory evidence is admissible. It happens hundreds of times a day in trial courts in every state. If it did not happen in your trial, ask your appellate attorney why such evidence was not offerred.
How Much Money Do Criminal Law Lawyers Make In A Year?
There are criminal defense attorneys who are in private practice who make very, very good money (think Johnnie Cochran, who defended O.J. Simpson). Most private practice criminal defense attorneys spend a lot of time on things like DWI's and assault cases, though, that aren't very lucrative unless your client is a professional athlete.
There are criminal defense attorneys who are public defenders, and who are therefore employees of the state/county/city where they work. They generally make in the range of $30 - $90K per year, depending on where they're working. Most fall more toward the low end of that range.
There are prosecutors (states attorneys, city attorneys, county attorneys), who are also public employees, so their income falls into about the same ranges, possibly a bit higher.
Do I Need A Lawyer?
I Have A Cdlwith A Clean Mvr, I Got Pulled Over On New Years Eve. Going To Work In The Morning. The Cop Said I Was Doing 90 In A 60,[Which Was Not True] No Seatbelt,[I Always Wear One!] Illegal Lane Change,[Probably So] And Following Too Close. [Happy Freekin New Year Right?] Anyway, Do You Think I Need A Lawyer To Fight This? I Need A Professional Answer To This Problem Please!!
I'm sorry I'm not a lawyer, BUT, you may need to retain a one. If you are trying to fight the speeding ticket may have to file a motion to obtain records on the maintenance of the radar. That's huge!!!!!!!! 30 over the limit, you could've automatically went to jail or license revoked for wreckless driving. Worst of all is the insurance. I've been lucky, I WAS speeding approx. 23 miles over the limit 93 in a 70 in NC. I live in MD, the trooper told me I could be arrested and that I will have to show up in Court at 9:30am. So I found a lawyer and it was reduced to speeding 79 in a 70. Bottom line, you may want to get a lawyer. It's going to be difficult just by going with your word against his.

In Need Of Serious Legal Help!!!!?
My Son Was Suspended From School Today For Being Under The Influence. My Son Claims To Have Only Had Two Shots Of Tequila Yesterday And Had Nothing More. He Got Sick At School And The Teacher Claimed To Have Smelled Alcohol On Him. I Did Not Smell It On Him This Morning. The Police Officer At The School Said He Failed A Pen Test But The School Never Breathalyzed Him. They Suspended Him For 5 Days And 3 Days In Iss. Can I Sue The School For This? He Was Wrongly Punished. What Should I Do?
Are you in need of serious legal help? Yes.
Can you sue the school? No.
What should you do? First, wise up. I've seen this problem first hand. (Trust me on this.) This wasn't the first or second or third time your son was drinking. He's likely an alcoholic. Check your liquor cabinet. Even if the bottles look full, taste them. The booze may have been watered down. Possibly he's not drinking at home, but somewhere else. Or at least has a bottle or two stashed somewhere else.
Question: Has he been missing school lately? Even if he's been leaving for school, check his attendance there. Has he been skipping classes?
Question: Has he been to the doctor lately, maybe more than once, for any health issues? If so, get your son to sign a HIPAA release so that you can talk frankly to the doctor. Today, even if pediatricians or other physicians are told by the patient that they're drinking, the physician won't reveal that to the parent. You need the HIPAA release to get the truth out of the physician.
Look: You can ask your son all this. He's going to lie to you. Oh yes, he will.
And I know you don't want to hear this. You think he's just had a drink or two, and your son's telling you this is the first time. If you believe that, I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.
He's showing up drunk at school. He admits to drinking. The teacher smells booze on him. Your son failed a pen test in the presence of a police officer.
Your son needs medical help. And, yes, consult with a lawyer. Not to sue the school, but to figure out what steps you need to take to keep your son from being expelled.
Again, I know that's not what you want to hear. But it's the truth.
