Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Thank you for your reply.
A few additional quesions:
-When filling a General Sessions suit, do I name the woman at fault or the insurance company or both?
-I have been speaking directly to the insurance companies, my assumption is that when I file, they will not speak to me any further, is this often the case? If so, I suppose I will have to wait for all the medical bills to come in before filing, right?
-Understanding you are not going to be the presiding Judge, I know my question is a asking you to speculate.. I am unclear what to expect regarding being compensated for my personal time to deal with this issue including, the accident, the phone calls, the emails, this time right now, all of which is time being taken away from active projects. What is the best way to present the time I have spent in this matter. I have been operating under the (likely naive) notion that all of my time dealing with this matter is eligible for compensation. Is this a reasonable expectation, or is this more a matter of the Judge's discretion?
You are welcome and thank you, I will certainly have more questions in the future and will be on the lookout for the survey.
