Since your are (I presume) legally married to a US citizen and both your children were born in the US, then I suspect you have a lot more Rights than you realize. If you can, talk with an attorney.
Edit: As poohcat said, there are free alternatives in many areas. Family Services, free legal advice to aliens (legal and otherwise) etc. Start walking your fingers through the Yellow and White Pages. You seem to have an excellent handle on English and that is going to help you immensely.
What'S The Average Time Frame For Attorneys To Settle With Insurance Companies?
Not Quite 4 Months Ago, I Hired An Attorney Because I Had Been Rear-Ended And The Repair Estimate Was Close To $7,000. For Therapy And Diagnosis/Prognosis, I Had Maybe 6 Doctor/Chiropractor Visits Over The Course Of The Next Month. Now, I'M Waiting To Hear Whether The Insurance Company Will Accept Our Demand.
Anyway, That'S The Background Information About The Accident And Hiring A Lawyer. How Long Do Physical Injury Accident Cases Take To Settle?
I take it by your note that you've finished treatment. If so, then the insurance company will evaluate your claim to determine how much to pay you.
You said you're waiting to hear whether they'll accept the demand...so has your attorney presented them with a demand? If so, it should be resolved rather soon. They'll need to review your medical records from the treatment you received, which your attorney should have provided them. If it was only 6 chiro visits over the course of a month, that's pretty easy to evaluate.
From the time he sent the demand, the insurance company should reply no later than a month with an offer, if not sooner. I would keep in touch with your attorney as to how much longer it will take.
What Is A Civil Lawyer?
What Is A Civil Lawyer, Job Description, Salary?
There are two types of law, criminal and civil. Criminal law as you know is handled by the district attorney's office and involve crimes that violate state laws (murder, robbery, etc.). Civil laws are duties which one person has to another. A duty is something that a reasonable person would do. For example, a reasonable person who enters into a contract with another would carry out the terms of that contract; if they do not carry out the terms that they agreed to then they can be sued in civil court.
A civil attorney then may handle a wide variety of cases from family law (divorces, adoptions, crimes involving juveniles); contract law, maritime law, bankruptcies, etc. The best way to think about civil law is if someone is injured by another but that person is not criminally responsible, it is a way to make that person injured whole again. The only way the courts can do that is by awarding the person injured money for medical expenses and other injuries.
Attorneys will sign petitions (complaints) starting the lawsuit. They will conduct depositions (interviews under oath), send out interrogatories (multiple choice questions), subpoena witnesses, and question witnesses at trial. Attorneys will also represent clients at an appeal court by filing petitions and argue in front of the appeal courts. When a judgment is rendered, the attorney will take their share of the winnings and distribute the rest to the client based off of the hiring agreement.
Attorneys who work in civil law can have a wide range when speaking of salaries. This can be for several reasons. The size of the law firm and that nature of the cases you work on may determine who much you make a year. Large law firms, an attorney will have a set salary but will most likely earn a bonus at the end of the year depending on the amount of funds that person brought into the law firm.
Hope this helps.
How Do Physicians Feel About Malpractice Attorneys?
That They Are The Lowest Forms Of Life?
Probably. Malpractice attorneys say that they are aiding patient advocacy and protecting the patient, and maybe that can be true, but in the end they truly undermine the patient-doctor relationship and trust. Now doctors are more tentative about helping people in great risk, especially surgeons. If something happens to the patient, they always have to be prepared to defend the level and quality of care that they gave, as well as life-or-death decisions. Could you imagine being in a doctor's shoes--they've already got enough to worry about. I think malpractice attorneys probably do more harm to the quality of medical care than help it. Ultimate irony right there.
I heard a medical student joke once "What's the difference between a possum and a lawyer on a highway? There are skidmarks in front of the possum." haha...WOW.
Do You Need A Lawyer For Pressing Assaults Charges On Someone Or More People?
Do You Need To Go To Court Too?
Criminal assault charges are investigated by the police and referred to the prosecutor or DA for presentation to a Court or Grand Jury. To get things started you need to contact the police and file a complaint with them. They take it from there.
Civil assaults should be handled by a private attorney and depends on the issues of liability and amount of damages, usually medical costs and lost wages.
Talk to a lawyer if you have more questions about this.
I Have Cuts, Is This Child Abuse?
I Am 15 Years Old And My Father Hit Me On The Side Of My Head And I Am Not Hearing Right. That Time, He Hit Me Last Week, And Only Twice. Today He Hit Me Five Times, Once Again On The Ear And On The Shoulder And He Ran His Nails Through My Arm. I Don'T Know If It Is Really Abuse. He Didn'T Apologize, And He Definitely Meant To Hurt Me. The Thing Is, He Has Lots Of Money And Power And He Studied To Be A Lawyer And Can Make Anything Seem Harmless. I Don'T Know Who To Go To, What To Say, How To Explain. What Would Happen If I Reported Him? He Said He Wasn'T Finished. I Just Don'T Want It To Happen Again.
What you're describing is child abuse. I know it's very scary, but you must talk to an adult you're close with. This could be an aunt, uncle, grandparent, or family friend (who will take action) or a teacher/school counselor. This adult should contact the police or social services and this may lead to an investigation on your father. If you feel like you are in extreme danger, PLEASE CALL 911. Your father is NOT ALLOWED to hurt you in this way, and it does not matter if he apologizes or not.
