Finding A Skilled Lawyer No matter what your legal needs are you will see that there are numerous lawyers in your town that advertise they are experts in your form of case. This can make the whole process of finding one with significant amounts of experience a bit of a challenge. However, when you follow the tips below it will be easy to limit your quest on the right one in very little time. Step one is to create a list of the lawyers that are listed in your town specializing in your situation. While you are making this list you must only include those that you have a good vibe about based on their advertisement. You may then narrow this list down through taking a little while evaluating their site. There you should be able to find how many years they have been practicing and several general specifics of their success rates. At this stage your list needs to have shrunken further to those that you simply felt had professional websites and an appropriate quantity of experience. You need to then take time to search for independent reviews of every attorney. Be sure you read the reviews rather than relying on their overall rating. The info from the reviews will provide you with a concept of how they connect with their clients and the length of time they invest into each case that they are focusing on. Finally, you will want to talk with at the very least the final three lawyers who have the credentials you are looking for. This will give you time to actually evaluate how interested they may be in representing both you and your case. It is crucial for you to follow most of these steps to ensure that you hire a company which includes the right level of experience to help you get the very best outcome.

Lawyers Vs. Insurance Company In Terrible Car Crash?
I Need As Much True Help From Legal Experts And/Or Insurance Companies As I Can Get Right Now. My Sister Was Recently In A Car Accident And Was Not At Fault. She Was Pushed By Another Car Into Oncoming Traffic And Had A Head On Collision With A Trialblazer. She Broke Almost All Her Ribs, Both Femurs And Both Hips And Is On A Breathing Tube Because She Can Not Breathe On Her Own. She Developed Staph Infection In The Hospital (We Think It Was In The Hospital, She Had Pneumonia Before The Accident So I Am Not Sure If This Got Worse And Gave Her Staph In Her Lungs). She Was In Surgery For Hours Putting Rods, Screws And Pins In Her Legs And Hips. She Is The Mother Of Four Children And These Kids Are Of Course Heart Broken, But She Is Also Their Primary Care Provider.
Ok, So Here Is My Question. I Was Told Not To Get A Lawyer Because Of The Person Who Was At Fault Was Insured For Say, $250,000, That Is All She Could Claim For. If He Went To The Insurance Company, She Would Get All Of This. If She Went Through A Lawyer, She Would Only Get About 60 Percent. I Was Told To Work With The Insurance Agency, And Then File A Civil Case Against The Person At Fault With A Lawyer. I Don'T Know What To Do Because My Sister In Not Insured, And After She Gets Out Of The Hospital, Before Going Home She Will Have To Stay In A Rehab Facility To Learn How To Walk Again. All Of This Will Cost Many, Many Millions Of Dollars.
If Anyone Has Gone Through Anything Similar, Or F You Are A Lawyer Or Insurance Agency, Please Give Me The Truth Of What I Should Do, For My Sister'S Sake, And For Her Four Kids. Thanks So Much In Advance.
The most an insurance company can pay you for your injury is the per person policy limit.
An attorney can't change that.
The limit is the limit.
So, if you have 1 million in medical bills and the per person limit is $25,000: then the max payable is $25,000.
If you hire an attorney - his fee will be 1/3 of any settlement you get + expenses.
So, why give away a large chunk of your settlement money if you don't have to?
I'd work with the insurance company and see what they offer. If they offer the policy limit- you can ask them to send you written confirmation of the limit.
Talk to the hospital patient liason. He/She may be able to direct your sister to other sources of help. Would she qualify for Medicaid or SSI?
Unless a big commercial truck hit your sisters car - odds are the limits on the car that hit her are not going to be enough to cover all her medical expenses.
The insurance adjuster can explain the process to you.
However, if the insurance company pays their policy limit, your sister will have to sign a release that ends the claim against their insured. They are not going to pay you their limit and let you sue their insured. But a lawsuit against their insured is only good if the person has assets. If the guy is a regular person like the rest of us....a lawsuit won't do you much good. He has to have something you can take in order to get paid.

If you have time before the court hearing since your ex had his lawyer request a later date, then maybe you should check on possibly change court appointed lawyers and as well speak with family friend of the court about having a mediator present with any child support/visitation appointments. If he has injured you and your daughter, that proves he has anger issues and should prove to be enough for a judge residing over your case. You have a right to write a letter to the judge on your own behalf explaining your side and reason you are asking for court ordered supervised visitations, that he is required to attend anger management
counseling, and parenting courses, upon completion then you would like to then have a mediator present to assist with a visitation schedule and set up child support payment in order for him to continue to provide financially for the child you have.
I had to do the same thing proving there had been abuse and i felt comfort having supervised visitations for a year. then we made other arrangements. I wish you luck it's a difficult thing to have to endure, but it was the best and safest thing for you and your daughter.
Need A Lawyer? What Area Of Law?
Which Lawyer Do I Need For Work Discrimination? I'M Looking Up Lawyers In The Area And All I See Is Personal Injury, Work Compensation And Dui Lawyers.
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 Employment Law for employEES. (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.)

Search for an attorney. You may have a case involving inappropriate termination of employment
with malice. Your case could also affect your future employment opportunities thus lessening your future income which in the long term affects your social security retirement income.
In the meantime, don't post anymore to your co-workers and don't discuss this case with anyone but an attorney.
