Need Advice About Law Please?
My Husband Passed Away Almost One Year Ago. I Have Two Years Old Daughter. I Have A House. My Husband Bought The House Almost 2 Years Ago. The House Is Under My Husband Name. How I Can Transfer The House My Name? Please , I Meed Advice
The law and procedure varies from state to state. Also, it's important to use very specific words when describing things. You say you have "a" house, and your husband bought "the" house. It may sound stupid, but what house did your husband buy? Yours? Did he buy the whole thing or just half of it? I'm sure this is stressful and exhausting, but it's important to be as precise as you can. Otherwise, whoever is helping you may get the facts wrong.
Find a legal aid clinic in your area. If you need help finding one, contact your county's Bar Association and tell them you need "pro bono" or "low bono" help with a probate issue on a house. They can hook you up with someone.
I Hired The Law Firm Of Willy And Nilly, But They Seem Disorganized And Haphazard.?
Should I Hire Another Law Firm?
I would if I were you. You can try my law firm of Yin & Yang. They are very in sync with each other. I wouldn't recommend my mother's law firm of Back & Forth as she just gets the run around from them. And definitely stay away from The Law Firm of Bonnie & Clyde because I've heard they'll rob you blind. Don't go near the firm Gin & Tonic as they are about to be disbarred for problems with drinking. Another good firm is Hunky & Dory...usually things turn out just fine with them. My neighbor should have gone with them. He used the firm of Mumbo & Jumbo and couldn't understand a word they said.
Looking For A Attorney?
I Need To Find An Attorney That Handles Death Cases Due To Negligence Of A Nursing Home In The State Of Tennessee. Can Someone Guide Me
In lawyer-speak, you have a personal injury case resulting in "wrongful death." I don't live in Tennessee, so I can't give you any specific names, but there are three ways to find some lawyers to interview. (And let me emphasize that you should be interviewing them first, not just hiring one). In any event, do not take the recommendations of total strangers that you find on Yahoo Answers.
The best recommendation is from either another client or another lawyer. So, if you have a lawyer of any kind, maybe when you bought a house or had a will drawn up, go to him or her and ask for someone who can handle a negligence case. If not, ask your friends and family if they know a lawyer and can get you a recommendation.
The second way to get a name is to go to the bar association in the county where you live or where the claim is. For example, you can get connected with a qualified lawyer in Knoxville, through the Knoxville Bar Association. http://www.knoxbar.org/ Many other counties have something similar.
Your third choice is to go to Martindale-Hubble, which has been around for a zillion years and which lists almost every lawyer there is. At their Web site, you can find lawyers in your area by selecting the "Practice Area" of Personal Injury, and then the sub-category of Wrongful Death. But here is the key: look for lawyers that are rated either AV or BV. The A and B ratings are formed from a combination of how experienced they are and how well regarded they are in the bar. It's not just like school, where A's are always better than B's, because a B lawyer may be just as good as an A, but younger. Either one is excellent, and I am sure you will find several names that way. The V part of the rating means that the lawyer is known to act responsibly with client funds. So, you want either A or B, plus V. http://www.martindale.com/
Once you have a couple of names, go and talk with the lawyers to see if you have a good case, to see what evidence you and he/she might have to get, and to discuss fees. You can pay a lawyer by the hour, but in these cases, most lawyers work on a "contingency" basis, which means that they get a percentage of whatever amount you win in settlement or at trial. You pay nothing if you lose, but you pay a lot if you win. But despite what they tell you, not all lawyers charge the same contingency fee. A lot can depend on how much it will cost to bring this case. Will they have to travel outside the area? Will they have to hire experts (usually, the answer is yes to that one? Was the person in the home so old that it will be difficult to prove he or she would not have lived if there was no negligence? Etc., etc. Fees can be discussed and negotiated. So talk with a couple of lawyers before you commit to any one of them. Do NOT sign an representation agreement until you are satisfied.
Oh, and just to state the obvious: the fee is only part of the consideration. You will have to work closely with this person for months or years. So it is more important to feel that you are in good hands with someone you can trust and deal with. It may be worth agreeing to a larger fee for someone you are sure will do a good job.
Good luck, and I hope this helps.
Need Help/Advice On Settling Bodily Injury Claims?
My Family Was In An Accident. My Husband Was Driving In The Rain And Another Car Hydroplaned And Hit Us. The Other Carrier Accepted Full Responsibility And My Car Has Been Paid For. However, My Husband Hit His Head And Had Neck Injury As Well As Bruises On His Shoulder And Hip Where The Door Came In On Him. My Daughter Was In The Backseat And Was Flung Against The Door Causing Injury To Her Right Shoulder. Both Of Them Treated At E.R. And When The Pain Didn'T Subside They Went To A Chiropractor. My Husband Is Doing Better But My Daughter'S Shoulder Continued To Hurt. She Went To An Ortho Who Diagnosed Her With A Scapular Strain. She Is Going Through Physical Therapy. I Had A Small Cut To My Elbow And Neck Pain. I Treated At E.R. And Then Chiropractor. I Am Done Treating. The Adjuster Has Been Calling Me. My Question Is, Should I Go Ahead And Settle My Bi Claim Or Wait Until My Family Is Done Treating? Also, What Should We Be Looking For In Terms Of Settlement? I Do Not Want To Be Greedy, But I Also Want To Get What Is Normal For These Injuries. Does It Have Something To Do With The Amount Of Medicals? Any Other Factors?
You're not going to be looking at big bucks, without permanent injuries. Additionally, exactly WHAT you are entitled to, is going to depend a WAY LOT on what state you are in. In a no fault state, for example, you can only collect for minor injuries (sounds like that's what everyone has, just muscle soreness, and maybe a few stitches for you) from your own policy.
You probably need to call your agent, and ask what the BI laws are in your state.
There's no average, btw. There's no "three times medical bills" rule. That's a myth. Many states partially or totally discount chiropractor bills, so you can't include them with medical bills, anyway. If there's no scarring, and no stitches, your cut is worth whatever the doctor charged to stick a bandaid on it.
The biggest factors are your state, the policy limits, and your ACTUAL INJURIES.
Married Couple... Spouse Going To Assisted Living Or Nursing Home..The Cost?
So If The Husband Makes $4,000/Month And His Soon -To -Be Institutionalized Wife Makes $1,000/ Month (Disability Check).. And The Couple Has A Home, ~ $ 350 K In A Retirement Fund.. And $150K In Cd'S ( Designated For Kids College Funds) .. What Is The Scenario ? What Should Be Done To Maximize Asset Protection? State Is Massachusetts.
You need to speak with an elder law attorney, even if she is not an elder. You will have to pay the cost of the home from your assets. If you are asking what to do to get the state to pay you will first have to spend down the retirement fund and the CD's, neither will be protected and it doesn't matter to the state what the funds are intended for. The state frowns upon giving away assets 5 years prior to long term care needs, which is why you need the attorney.
The home will be protected as long as you or a dependent child lives there, but a lien could be attached at your death.
What Is The Legal System And Law?
"Law" refers to rules governing the actions or limitations of said actions of persons of which these rules affect and also to matters related to these laws (i.e. law enforcement, the study of law, etc).
The legal system is the system based around laws and the acts of enforcing, interpreting, or changing these laws, plus adding new ones. Generally a legal system will include branches that enforce law (police officers and the like and lawyers in some cases), interpreting laws (in a court environment with judges, lawyers, and sometimes a jurry (i.e. a judicial branch of government)), and adding or changing them (a congressional body sometimes with an executive branch (i.e. a political figurehead or body)).
Legal systems and law are different in nearly every country of the world, and are usually determined by federal, state/canton/regonal, and local governments, though this is not always the case. Laws are interpreted differently by differen people, further leading to variations from place to place in how these laws are enforced.
If this is a topic that interests you, there are many books online and at local libraries dedicated to the topic of the legal system in different countries.
