Personal Injury Claim Against Me, Now What Happens?
I Was Involved In An Accident On December 22Nd. It Was A 5 Car Pile Up And I Was The 5Th Vehicle. The Police Report And My Insurance Found The 4Th Vehicle To Be At Fault For The Initial Pile Up And I Was Found Liable For Damages Only To The Rear End Of The 4Th Vehicle. I Was Also Told By My Adjuster That They Would Accept Liability For Only A Portion Of The Injuries To The 4Th Vehicle'S Driver. I Have Just Received A Letter Form My Insurance Stating That The 4Th Vehicle Driver Is Filing A Personal Injury Claim. What Is The Process Now, And Will My Insurance Cover The Costs Of The Claim Or Will I Be Forced To Pay Out Of Pocket, Or How Does The Whole Thing Work?
You are very, very lucky that they are only making you liable for car 4, and not for cars 1 to 4. Whereas, car 4 most likely will be held liable for cars 1, 2 and 3, and ANY injuries from the drivers and passengers in those vehicles.
And yes, you will be held partially liable for car 4 injuries, since even though they hit the other cars, your last hit, 'aggravated" the injuries.
Your adjuster will be fighting this, and that will be their job. My guess is that they will only accept a max of 50% for the injuries, which would include the medical bills plus pain/suffering.
At this point, do not worry about it. Your insurance has informed you of this, and my guess is that this will not settle for at least 6 months, so you need to be patient.
You do NOT need to hire a lawyer, and if this person sues you, then your insurance will hire a lawyer for FREE to defend you.
Now, IF, the settlement is not enough, then the insurance must inform you of this, and then you would need to hire a lawyer yourself. But, 90% of all claims are settled under the limits, and your insurance will pay what they believed is owed.
Be patient, and call the adjuster every couple of weeks for a status.
How Do I Find A Lawyer?
How Do I Find An Attorney That Is Affordable In My Area Also That Is Working For Me No Matter What The Situation
THE best way to find a lawyer is by word of mouth. Ask your: family, friends, coworkers, anyone you might know in the same situation, etc.
Call your local (usually county) bar association. Ask for names of attorneys that handle your type of matter. (If money is a BIG problem, you could also ask for the phone number of your local LegalAid office. - the attorneys at LegalAid are "real" attorneys, but sometimes in the field of Law, how much you are willing to pay does affect the quality you get.)
Go to your local Public Library. Ask the Reference Librarian for their "MARTINDALE-HUBBELL" - and/or on the computer www.martindale.com - to find an attorney based on practice, geography, etc.
When you call the law office(s), insist on speaking with the Lawyer. Just tell the Secretary the main idea of your matter - do not tell all the little details of your matter to the Secretary - save the details for the Attorney. When you get the Lawyer on the phone line, ask him/her:
- Do they give >>>FREE, initial consultations for the FIRST meeting? (most do, but not all - you have to ask, don't assume)
- How much do they charge (per hour)?
- Could you make payments on your account?
- Can they help you? OR Refer you to someone who can help you?
(This is based on my knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Seeking advice over the Internet is not a good idea - the field of Law is too complex for that. Please be careful and do your research.)
Should My Daughter Have An Aid On The Playground?
She Had A Problem On The Play Ground Today. She Is Eleven Years Old And Was Born With Downs...
I am not sure about legal rights, but I would definately be looking into it like you are! I work with children and young adults who have developmental disabilities (in Colorado) and after reading your question I was appalled by what is not being done for your daughter! She needs a 1:1 to help teach her how to interact with others so she does not become alienated from everyone! At her age it would be so beneficial to have that attention to help her develop her communication with others since there is an impairment, and learn how to interact at a different level. I am sorry I don't know more, but I want to wish you luck and give kudos to you for actively finding a solution!
Can A Person With A Felony Conviction On Their Record Become An Attorney?
Each state (or country) has its own standards, but attorneys are generally required to pass a moral character determination. While a felony conviction is not an automatic disqualification, in most situations it is sufficient to prevent the attorney from being admitted.
Is This A Standard Custody Agreement?
My Wife And Her Ex Husband Are Currently Going Through A Relatively Un-Nasty Dispute, But I Fear That Soon Things Will Take A Turn For The Worse.
The Ex Is Requesting A Modification To The Current Custody Agreement, Which We Agree Is Needed. However In The Proposed Agreement, Which He States Is A &Quot;Standard&Quot; Agreement For The County In Which The Case Is Being Tried, It States That The Child Will Spend Every Other Week, During The Summer, With The Father.
The Child Despises Going To His Father'S On Weekends As It Is, We Can'T Fathom The Idea Of Forcing Him To Go For A Week At A Time, Is This Truly Standard? The Only Place I Can Find A Copy Of This &Quot;Standard&Quot; Agreement Is On A Local Attorney'S Website, Which Leads Me To Believe It Something This Attorney Has Cooked Up For His Clients.
At What Age Does The Childs Opinion Begin To Matter?
What Chance Do We Have Of Avoiding This If We Go Back To Court?
What Do I Do? We Hate Lawyers, They Are A Waste Of Money And Tim
There usually is a standard agreement. I had one funny thing is she lived in KY and I lived in TX and It read like I lived next door. Since my divorce I have been in the legal field and I wish I knew what I know now. Most of the answers I say may vary from state to state. What age does the child's opinion matter usually 12 yrs, but that depends on the Judge and or state. You can can Pro Se on this issue (on your own), File your own motions to avoid paying for a lawyers. As far as avoiding going to court. If you to have agreement then your chances are good, file a stipulated agreement. If no agreement then it might need a hearing. Check with the court house and see about the forms, fees, any pro se classes before you do anything. The more you know now the better thing will be down the road.
What Is The Bottoms-Up Theory By Means Of Constitutional Law And Posner?
Posner takes a perspective of Constitutional law from the judges who make the decisions. In that sense, it is a bottom-up approach with the "up" being the document itself. If you have access to westlaw or lexisnexus, the citation for his article is 56 Geo. Wash. L. Rev. 4. The name of the article is "The Constitution as an Economic Document."
Posner, as a member of the Chicago school of economics, is concerned with the theory that judges make policy decisions based on the economic consequences of a ruling.
In general, a bottom up approach concerns legal criticism with particular aspects in action rather than broad concepts. A bottom up approach to contract law involves the study of offer and acceptance rather than the statutory framework of the uniform commercial code such as the distinction between and classification of merchant and non-merchant. Most study of law is a bottom up approach whereby the overarching concepts are revealed through the rulings of individual cases. A constitutional law course does not involve a reading of the document itself followed by a bunch of law review articles, but reading the cases which interpreted it and the problems of society the cases were addressing. A student takes the bottom, the cases, and reaches an understanding of the top, the Constitution.
The bottoms-up theory could be classified as a use of the philosophy of legal realism in legal criticism.
You should note that Posner is concerned with economically efficient outcomes and not morality. A breach of contract may be morally reprehensible, but it is Posner's belief that merely economic damages should govern the law of contracts and the law should not punish for the breach i.e. if a party breaches a $10k contract in order to sell the same goods to another for $25k, the party SHOULD breach the contract and pay the non-breaching party $10k under Posner's view. Posner believes that judges can stimulate economic growth through upholding constitutional protections in commerce, but he also believes that the Constitution is a limitation on judges from choosing what might be the most economically efficient decision.
