Legal Answers
296 Questions Answered
Q. I was involved in a minor accident & I have no insurance. Will I have to go to court? They sent me an attorney lien lett
A: The short answer is that a lawyer for the party who may claim some injury has sent you the form letter that generally kicks off such a case. I'm sure the letter asks you to report this incident to your insurer, which you don't have. Many lawyers in your situation will turn to their client's (the other other party's) uninsured motorist coverage to explore a recovery that was which is much more likely than trying to collect if they were to win against you, an uninsured person. Since you are uninsured, you may be safe for now. The other party's claim and its resolution may well come by way idf its/their insurer under the uninsured motorist coverage.
Q. APPEARANCE FILED - FEE PAID - (JURY DEMAND) What does this mean
A: This means that the defendant(s) has filed an appearance and a demand for jury trial. This filing would almost always be filed by the attorney(s) representing the defendant(s).
Q. My neighbor waits until dark to burn excavation site junk. Makes breathing hard. Is this illegal? Can we stop him?
A: My suggestion would be to contact your local alderman (if you live in the City of Chicago) or your local municipal government. I would be fairly sure that what your neighbor is doing, burning material putting off noxious odors, is in violation of local, municipal, and state law.
