86 Questions Answered

Q. Now that I fired the lawyer where can I find a lawyer that will take my case
A: The Virginia State Bar has a lawyer referral service that you can call: (800) 728-5768 Also, if you know an attorney (other than the one you fired) ask that attorney whom they recommend. You may also look on AVVO, which has a "find a lawyer" tool on their website. I hope this information is helpful. God Bless, Mr. Hoen
Q. What can I do at now that I have fired the attorney and he had told the insurance company that he would saddle
A: If the attorney was fired for cause, the lien may not be valid. Otherwise, it must be reasonably based on the amount of work done by the attorney. If you are retaining another attorney, they can assist you in the process of validating the lien.
Q. I was in a car accident a year ago and the attorney that I had settled the case without speaking to me what can I do
A: The case cannot settle without you signing a release. Schedule an appointment to discuss the settlement process with your attorney.
Q. My husband fell about 12 feet off a ladder in December. He fell on his head and shoulder. He went to the dr
A: If this happened in D.C., consult with a D.C. attorney. If in VA, he should be under an award and will need to file a Claim for Benefits if he is not. An attorney can assist him with that process.
Q. I was rear-ended but was driving below the speed limit at the time. Will that limit my chances at recovering costs from
A: The information you provided is insufficient to answer your question. More details about the circumstances are needed. If you suffered injury, would benefit from a consultation with an experienced injury attorney. Most of us offer free consultations.
Q. My siblings and I have been made aware of our legal right to make a claim for part of the settlement in wrongful death
A: Wrongful death beneficiaries and the distribution of damages for wrongful death are determined by statute in Virginia. It is separate from the decedent's estate (not an inheritance) and does not fall under the will. While your stepfather can qualify to be the personal representative for the wrongful death claim, he must distribute the proceeds to the statutory beneficiaries. If the death occurred in Virginia, the statutory beneficiaries are the surviving spouse and any children of the decedent. The statutory beneficiaries can agree how to distribute the apportionment of damages or have a judge, jury or mediator decide. If there is a settlement without litigation and the parties do not agree on apportionment, mediation is a good option. A Virginia attorney would be of assistance in the process.
Q. I was involved in a head on collision. Other person was at fault with police evidence. He appealed guilty verdict. Why?
A: He had an automatic right to appeal and have a new trial in circuit court. Most likely, he or his attorney (if he was represented) hopes for a better outcome on appeal.
Q. Can the Ins Co tell the employer to stop the weekly paychecks without notifying you or your Workman's Comp atty?
A: Schedule an appointment with your attorney to discuss this. The employer can be penalized for late payments.
Q. I am planning on working for a new company at the end of my claim. Will giving my 2 weeks while I'm still involved?
A: It is unclear what you mean by "end of my claim." If you are under medical restrictions and receiving wage benefits, you lose the wage benefits when you resign. Be sure you are under an Award Order to preserve your lifetime medical award.
