Legal Answers
131 Questions Answered

Q. What is the best course of action to take when a bumper to bumper accident occurs and your car is at the back?
A: The injury claim will be handled by your insurance company. They will not provide you with an attorney to handle the traffic case. Your wife can either appear and contest the charge on her own or hire counsel.
Q. I was awarded benefits for a work injury in VA now the ins comp wants to settle but they say I have to resign; true?
A: A resignation and release is standard in workers comp settlements. It is typically a condition of settlement required by the employer's insurance carrier. As for settlement value, you should have a qualified workers comp attorney assist you with negotiating settlement in order to assess the full value and be your advocate in the settlement process. Attorney fees must be approved by the Commission and are typically only 20% of lump sum settlements. There are Medicare and Social Security setoff issues in comp settlements that often make them more complicated than typical personal injury liability claims.
Q. i was in a auto accident my lawyer has filed no court papers in 2 half years switched lawyers on me 3 times
A: Speak with the attorney first. If he or she has missed filing suit before the statute of limitations has run, they need to report the matter to their malpractice insurance carrier.
Q. Doctor released my husband to go back to work in October, stopped payments, He couldn't work, in April another doctor
A: If he is back on "no work" status again, he is eligible for reinstatement of his temporary total disability payments. If they are not voluntarily reinstated, he will need to file a Claim for Benefits form with the Virginia Workers Compensation Commission based on the change in condition. Supporting medical records (including the work status report from the new doctor) should accompany the claim form. He should already be under an award for lifetime medical benefits, so if an award order for that is not already in place that needs to be added to the claim (under Part B) as well. Hearings are in Bristol in the event that the claim is denied by the employer's insurance carrier after the Claim for Benefits is filed.
Q. I was recently involved in a VA no fault car accident. I have Medicaid, & car is deemed totaled. What should I be asking
A: If you have not signed a release, it is not too late. $500 for pain and suffering is not a fair offer. See the Hampton Injury Law website for answers to all your questions. Do not settle until you read the "Do's and Don'ts" for how to handle your claim. From the home page, click on the Practice Areas tab and select from the dropdown menu "Do's and Don'ts When Handling an Injury Case".
Q. Can doctors in Virginia be sued for malpractice? I was told I can't because VA is a commonwealth.
A: You were told wrong. Obtain all medical records and see an experienced medical malpractice attorney for review by a medical expert.
Q. If vet does not confirm the cause of death of puppy can owner sue me for puppy not being healthy when sold.
A: Your question is unclear as to how you would be responsible. In any event, an expert veterinary opinion to prove causation of death would be required to pursue any claim. Also, there is no value to the claim other than the replacement cost for the puppy. Animals are considered personal property under Virginia law.
Q. I broke my left leg at work. Workers Comp claim was denied by insurer citing no risk to employment. Is that correct?
A: You did not provide any information about how your injury happened which is necessary in order to answer.
Q. I'm developing back and neck problems from sitting at a computer all day.
A: Highly doubtful. Neck and back problems are very common and may arise for numerous reasons. In order to be compensable, you would need medical evidence of a specific injury by accident arising out of and in the course of your employment. A sudden mechanical/physical change with a reasonably sudden onset of symptoms is required.
