I was in a accident the other was at fault and damages to my car est 10 thousand, medical issues as well do I need a lawyer
A: Put simply, you do need a lawyer based on the facts you described. Of concern to me, however, is this facility recommending a lawyer that you can’t seem to get much information about. I would suggest you do your own research and consult with an experienced personal injury attorney in our state. By the way, some doctors and facilities do recommend attorneys. I would not classify it as normal, however. You need to know the basis on which they made the recommendation.
Need a Personal Injury Lawyer or Any Lawyer That Would Take My Case.
A: A local injury attorney should be able to guide you in this matter. It sounds like there are insurance coverage defenses which could make recovery difficult though. I’m curious as to how you were injured in a car accident in your apartment?
My daughter, has been asked to drive college insured van to varsity tennis practice. Can she be sued if she is in an accident.
A: A driver of any vehicle can and will be sued if they are negligent and their action caused compensable injury to another. That being said, it sounds like they are providing coverage for her under the policy. I would not accept their word on that. The policy and this situation need to be reviewed by an experienced insurance attorney.
Is a herniated disk in my neck with three bulges in my spine caused by an auto accident worth more then the $10,000 policy
A: Yes, and therefore you should have a thorough asset check done on the tortfeasor to determine if they can pay an additional amount above their policy limits. If you have Uninsured/Underinsured motorist coverage, all the better as you can proceed against that coverage for the rest of the value of your claim.
A: I believe this question was just recently asked. The same information applies, only the attorney that has full facts on your case can properly answer case value questions.
Do I have a case?
A: Whether you have a case that is worthwhile pursuing depends on too many unknown factors to be answered properly on this forum. If you want to know something other than maybe and you might have one or there could be negligence, you need to have an attorney who is experienced in fall cases review all the facts and determine whether your injuries warrant pursuing a case.
