When You Want To Hire A Lawyer Especially Personal Injury Lawyer What Information You Should Look For?
When You Want To Hire A Lawyer Especially Personal Injury Lawyer What Information You Should Look For Or What Questions You Will Ask From The Lawyer? What Information Needs To Be Included In The Signed Documentation Such As Fee, Etc?
For most personal injury cases it does matter too much who you get. The case is most likely going to be settled and you will not go to court. One important area are the fees. Most lawyers charge a third and subtract costs. You can find a lawyer that will do charge 20-25% in fees but you have to look for them.
The way a typical personal injury case works is you go through evaluation and treatment. After your treatment is done the attorney sends a letter to the insurance co. saying pay my client such and such amount of money. The insurance co. says no we will only pay this. Then the attorney and insurance company go back and forth and reach a final amount. Most people will take it. Pretty simple.
That was a very simplified version. I assumed you have had an auto accident. The money you get is usually based on whose fault it is, the severity of injury, medical records, and the policy limits of insurance.
Things to consider. How good is the attorney about getting back to you. Keep in contact to make sure attorney is aggressively going after insurance company. Things to ask attorney, ask if you medical bills will be taken out of your settlement. Also, be patient. Most clients get impatient, it takes a long time for treatment, etc., usually up to a year to settle case withou trial. With trial it could be two years. But if you are too hurried you could settle for a lower amount than what you could have gotten.

Is Money Received From A Wrongful Death Lawsuit Taxable?
"A wrongful death lawsuit is the legal term applied to a lawsuit that claims that someone died as a result of the negligent, wrongful and/or intentional acts of another. The lawsuit consists of two parts, a survival action and a wrongful death action. The survival action allows recovery for the deceased persons injuries until death. These damages may include conscious pain and suffering, medical bills up until death, and any lost wages from injury up until death. Punitive damages may also be recoverable. Any proceeds recoverable under this part of the case will get distributed to the heirs in accordance with the deceased person's Will. If their is no Will, there is a law which determines how much each heir can recover.
The wrongful death action is the part of the case that allows the heirs of the deceased to recover for their losses that are associated with the death. These losses typically include the economic value of the loss of guidance, advice, support as well as lost companionship and security. Lost wages are also recoverable. However, the mental anguish for losing a loved one is not recoverable under this act. Some examples of these economic losses are:
*Lost earnings of the deceased person
*Lost care, guidance, advice and support
*Lost inheritance in some cases
*Hospital expenses after death
*Lost prospective earning capacity
*Lost value of household chores
*NOT RECOVERABLE: grief, mental anguish, etc...
Wrongful death recovery is not part of the estate and is distributed without regard to decedents' Last Will and Testament. In addition, wrongful death proceeds are not taxable. The survival proceeds are part of the decedents estate and their may be tax consequences involved for the estate."
Any Lawyers That Can Offer Advice On How I Can Get The State To Prosecute A Robbery/Sexual Assault Case?
Even Though I Have Saliva Dna Evidence To Prove A Particular Male Sexually Assaulted Me, The State Of Florida Is Refusing To Prosecute This Guy Because After I Was Robbed And Assaulted While Charging My Phone In My Vehicle, I Tossed Out A Marijuana Pipe I Had In My Console, Because I Was Afraid I Would Get In Trouble With The Law. The Police Found It Anyway And I Admitted It Was Mine Before They Even Asked Who'S It Was, But The State Is Saying That My Actions Were Dishonest And Therefore It Sheds Doubt On My Story. Now They Will Not Prosecute This Scum-Bag Because They Don'T Know Whether I'M A Victim Or I'M Lying About It And Had A Consenting Sexual Encounter With Someone I Knew. What Options To I Have Now? I'M Willing To Take A Polygraph Or Whatever Is Necessary To Prove I'M Being Truthful, Even Though I Know It Cant Be Used In Court. Should I Put Pressure On The State And Go To The Media? I Don'T Have Money For A Lawyer And Don'T Know What Else To Do.
How exactly were you sexually assaulted? He went to kiss you? Saliva DNA found where?
I'm just curious how this "sexual assault" went down. My guess is the cops think it's so trivial it's not worth pursuing regardless of the truth.
Did you get high with the same guy that sexually assaulted you prior to the incident?
I Married A Canadian! Need Legal Help!?
My Wife And I Met Online And Got Married This Last Year. We Decided We Were Getting Married The Day Before She Left Canada To Come To The States. We Didn'T Have Anything Planned Out Though. Our Marriage License And Invitations Were All Gotten And Sent Out Nearly A Week After She Arrived. It Was Spur Of The Moment For Us. Now We Have To Go Back To Canada Together, And Are Worried About Crossing The Border. We Haven'T Changed Her Name Or Filled Out Any Paper Work For The Us Or Canadian Governments. Thing Is, Neither Of Us Want To Get Citizenship Or Even Work In Each Others Countries. We Want To Hop Back And Forth Every Few Months Between Countries. We Do Lots Of Ministry/Church Work And Are Completely Volunteer With No Financial Income. Would This Be Legal? What Do We Need To Do? Any Advice, Specifically From Someone With An Immigration Background Would Be Awesome. Thanks Much!
You'll have issues with that.
US citizens are free to visit Canada for up to 180 days each year. Same with Canadians visiting the United States. Visitors are not permitted to attend school, work, or look for work. Nor can they obtain driver's licenses and (in Canada) you can't obtain health insurance, open bank accounts, etc. However, your entry into Canada is at the discretion of Canadian Border Services and hers US Border Services.
There is no issue with her name change. When she returns to Canada, if she'll need to register her name change and obtain a new passport. Until then, its still her picture on it and legally she still has her maiden name.
You will run into border issues repeatedly crossing or repeatedly spending large amounts of time in the other's country. CBSA or USBS isn't going to buy that you are literally counting 180 days each year, that you have no sources of income, that you haven't applied for green cards/permanent residency, etc. It's going to look extremely bad after a few crossings and as the 180 days starts adding up, some agent will start asking for proof that you have jobs, a permanent address, travel medical insurance, bank statements, etc., etc. or just deny you entry.
Your ministry/church should be able to provide you with immigration help... typically an immigration lawyer or consultant, or at least a contact person in various embassies. While religious/charity groups do not require work permits, typically groups will ensure that you have long term tourist visas in order to avoid the 180 day limit, plus long term travel health insurance, and proof of your ministry/church work in the other country. In the case of Canada and the US, you should also consider applying for a NEXUS pass if you are going to be crossing frequently.
Finally... you do need plans for getting her a green card and/or you gaining permanent residency in Canada.
