You really want one with a very good track record, who istrustworthy, reliable, and wins cases. You would like to have trust that they will represent you thoroughly and bill you reasonably for their services.

Soft Tissue Injury Claim?
Soft Tissue Injury Claim?
Hi! I Was In A Car Accident On Nov.8Th In Maine. We Were All Stopped At A Light And Some Lady Without Insurance Blasted The Guy Behind Me, Which In Turn Caused A 5 Car Accident With Me In The Middle. From The Impact From The Back And The The Front, My Hat Ended Up In The Back Seat And I Had Immediate Back Pain. I Went To The Chiropractor The Next Day And Got X-Rays. It Pushed 2 Of My Vertabrae Together (Casuing Headaches) And Somehow Shifted My Hip, Making One Leg Shorter Than The Other. I Was Goin To The Chiro 3 Times A Week, Then 2 Times A Week, Then 1, Over The Course Of The Last 3 Months. I Just Got Released Monday, But Feel Its Not Quite Over. My Car Insurance Has Fixed My Car, Paid My Medical Bills And I Am Now Dealing With An Uninsured Motorist Claim With Them, And They Are Seriously Low Balling Me. My Car Repairs Were $1500 And My Chiro Bill Was About $1600. I Did Not Loose Any Time At Work, Cuz I Am The Only Worker.I Cook For 20 College Guys At A Frat House, So I Had To Work. I Worked, Stooped, Lifted And Everything That Comes With Gettin Groceries, Putting Away The Food Truck Order And Was Unable To Do Any Cleaning For The 1St Month. The 1St 2-3 Weeks After The Accident Were The Absolute Worse Trying To Work. They Offered Me $1000 And My Coverage Covers About 4 More Chiro Appointments. I Wa Stold If I Take It To Small Claims, I Can Get Upto $6000. So Isjut Need To Know How Much I Should Settle For. Thank You For Your Time.
If you were to file suit in small claims court, you would have to not settle with your insurance company and sue the driver who has no insurance and most likely no assets. The $6,000 is the max that the court will settle for, but not a guarantee you will get more than what your insurance company offered and still be only getting a judgement of $1,000 and then you would have to go after the driver at fault who has no insurance to collect, which may have nothing to collect from.
You were smart enough to have uninsured motorist coverage, otherwise with this person who had no insurance, would get nothing period for your injuries. Even if that person had insurance and with this being a 5 car accident that he caused, his insurance company would have to pay out 4 other drivers and may not have had enough insurance to pay everyone.
The 3 times medical or even the other guy stating 8 to 10 times medical is a myth that everyone throws out, but is NEVER used in settling injury claims. Soft tissue injuries AKA whiplash is a strain/sprain of your neck/back. Granted you were sore and had chiropractic treatment, but you did not have anything serious, otherwise would have seen a specialist.
If they offered you $1,000, then most likely the maximum they "value" your injury is between $1,200 to $1,500. Also if you were to settle, then even though you have 4 more chiro treatments left in your coverage, you would have to pay out of pocket for those 4 treatments if you continue, since once you settle, your auto medical coverage and/or PIP stops.
Like I stated above, if not for the uninsured coverage you were smart to buy, there would be no settlement at all since the driver had no insurance.
Civil Rights Lawyers?
Can You Help Me With Some Serious Insight Into What A Civil Rights Lawyer Does, And The Basic Concept Of The Career Besides The Obvious &Quot;Civil Rights&Quot;..
Is There Realyl A Demand Of These Lawyers?
There is a demand for civil rights lawyers - but, as some have pointed out, the jobs don't pay well...and, as others have suggested, if in less articulate ways, there are some who would criticize those who do civil rights work, even if they don't have a clue as to what the work entails.
Classic civil rights work tended to connote voting rights and other anti-discrimination lawsuits. Now the classification could be expanded to include ADA litigation, work done by the Innocence Project (DNA cases) and other, even less popular criminal defense.
For more insight, you should contact some agencies that do the work to chat with their lawyers.
How Do I Start A Legal Defense Fund?
My Wife And I Are Being Sued By A Building Company For Causing A Nuisance. The Building Company Built Our House In 2000. This Same Company Built All The Houses In Our Development And Graded All The Properties. The Nuisance Complaint Is For Storm Water That Runs Off Our Property Onto The Building Lot Next Door That The Building Company President Owns. The Storm Water Has Caused Some Erosion On The Building Lot. My Wife And I Don'T Think We Should Be Responsible To Fix This Problem, Since The Builder Created The Problem.
I don't know about a legal defense fund for sure, but have you ever heard about Pre-Paid Legal plans? They are kind of like legal insurance and provide tons of services for only $26 a month! If you'd like to check it out and have some questions answered, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Any Lawyers? Contract Law? Thanks?
Don'T Normally Ask For Help But In This Case I Could Really Use It. Much Appreciated
Quinn Employs Roy As His Authorized Business Agent On April 15. After May 1, The Contract Which Has Not Been Performed, Is
Refer To The Above Statement
Roy Enters Into A Ocntract On Quinn'S Behalf On April 15. After May 1, The Contract Which Has Not Been Performed Is
A) Binding On Quinn
B) Binding On Roy
C) Binding On Stan
The contract is binding on Quinn (unless it was clear that Roy was not authorized to make the contract).
Quinn made Roy his authorized agent. One of the most common things that agents do is to sign contracts on behalf of their principals. The contract is binding unless it was clear to Stan -- and yes, I mean Stan, not Roy -- that Roy was doing things he was not authorized to do.
The contract is also binding on Roy if Roy did not make it clear that he was acting on Quinn's behalf.
Do I Need To Get Legal Advice?
I Owned A 2007 Elantra And Traded It In Almost 3 Months Ago For A Mitsubishi. I Had Made The Payment On The Elantra A Few Days Before I Had Traded It In. But I Still Had Not Finished Paying Off The Loan When I Traded It In. I Got Financed For The New Vehicle And Was Waiting To Come In To Sign The Paper Work. I Did Not Hear From The Dealership For Almost A Week So I Went In To Ask What Was Going On And They Told Me That The Financing Did Not Go Through So I Sat At The Dealership For About 8 Hours And Finally Got Another Bank To Finance. We Filled The Paperwork Out And Signed Everything And Was Good To Go. I Went Home And And About Two Weeks Later I Had Lost My Job Due To An Excessive Amount Of Employees. The Next Day After Being Laid Off I Went To The Dealership To Pick Up My Old Plates And When I Got There They Had Told Me That The Bank That Was Financing Me Decided That They Did Not Want To Because I Was A Temporary Employee And So I Told Them That I Had Lost My Job The Day Prior And They Said Well Find A Job In A Week And We Will Get It You Financing. So I Found A Job A Week Later And Went Back In And They Couldnt Get Me Financed. I Tried To Get My Old Car Back That I Traded In And My Downpayment ($4000) And They Would Not Give My Car Or My Down Back. Finally After Fighting For Two Weeks I Went In And Told Them That If I Didnt Get My Car And Money Back That I Would Take Further Action And So They Told Me To Come In The Next Day At 10Am And They Would Give Me My Down And Old Car Back. I Went In At 10 And They Told Me To Come Back At 130 And They Would Have The Check Cut And Ready To Go, So I Did. When I Came Back The Manager Said That He Had Found A Better Deal Than What I Had Before...Keep In Mind This Is About 2 Months Later And I Had Not Made Any Payments On The Elantra Because The Dealership Had The Elantra The Whole Time And The Bank Started To Call Me And Harrass Me Even Though I Did Not Have My Car And They Would Not Give It Bac, I Thought I Was To Get My Check Back So I Could Make My Payment For The Next Month And Catch Up Until I Went In And They Said That They Found A Deal For Me. So I Resigned The Paperwork And They Said That They Would Have The Elantras Loan Paid Off By The End Of The Week And That We Wouldnt Have To Worry About It Anymore. Its Been Almost 3 Weeks And They Have Still Not Paid The Elantra Off And I Have Been Being Harrassed By The Bank Even Though I Do Not Have The Elantra And Have Not Had It For Almost 3 Months Now. The Bank Is Saying That It Is My Responsibility To Have The Dealership Pay Off The Elantra And That I Am To Still Make Payments On The Elantra Even Though The Paperwork Has Been Signed And The Trade Agreement Is Final. I Was Told That I Would Be Reimbursed But I Dont Believe Them. I Recieved A Phone Call From The Bank And The Finance Person At The Mitsubishi Dealership And They Told Me That I Needed To Make A Payment On The Elantra, So I Did... Which Was $300 And They Said That I Would Be Fine Till It Was Paid Off... Now The Bank Wants Me To Pay Them $1000 By The 18Th And I Dont Have The Money For That And They Also Sent Me A Letter Saying That If I Didnt They Were Going To Repo The Elantra. I Have No Idea What To Do. Can Anyone Help Me?
First off, I feel bad for you. You tried all the things from your side but were deceived by a very VERY bad dealer.
You are the victim of Spot Delivery. See this link.
You do have to seek legal advice ASAP. Also in the mean time you can try BBB as well. The Legal Counsel might be able to help nail the Dealer's license. With a good Counsel, you will be able to get your down payment,& your Elantra back.
On the Flip side, you are also to blame for the state of the affairs with the existing Elantra's finance company. You should have known that you don't have the title to that car for a reason. Until you are done paying, that car is bank's property. So you must pay their dues every month until they are paid off by the dealer or you. The moment deal on the Mitsubishi went south, you should have intimated them. Now your recourse is to sit with them and explain the situation. Be nice and see if you can reduce the $1000 amount to a reasonable amount. Provided you really can't put up that kind of money. Whatever you do, avoid that REPO at all costs.
Look, all they want is their money back. If they get decent assurance from you that going forward you will make good, they will give you a chance. They are likely to be sympathetic to you. Make sure you are on your best behavior & request them to give you a break. I am sure they will provided you have been good with your payments so far.
Good luck to you.
2 Part Family Law Question, Regarding Child Custody?
1. In The State Of California Is It True That One Parent Cannot Move To Another State (From California To Oregon) Without The Permission Of The Other Parent?
2. If One Of The Parents Is Incarcerated (In California) Do They Automatically Have To Give Up Their Parental Rights Making It Alright To Take His/Her Child To Oregon Without Their Permission?
yes, you need permission to move a child to another case unless you have court ordered sole custody and the other parent has no visitation. The court will keep you from moving to make sure the non custodial parent is still in the child's life.
However, IF the other parent is in jail for an extended period of time then it would be pretty easy to get permission to move since they don't see the kid anyway.
Being in jail does not automatically give up your custody that has been court ordered.
However, I HIGHLY encourage you to get the court ordered modified to sole legal custody, no visitation. When that person gets out of jail they will owe a lot of child support, so why terminate their rights totally? if you terminate their rights you terminate their child support obligation.
