I was in a car accident in April. A hay fell off a trailer

I was in a car accident in April. A hay bale fell off a trailer and caused an initial accident. A line of cars formed up to the on ramp of the highway. I entered the highway on said on ramp visibility was low, haze and dust were everywhere. something was in the middle of the road. I change lanes to avoid not seeing the line when I have a rear end collision with the stopped car causing it to hit the car in front of it. The police report states that I was following to close. I am blamed for the accident. My insurance covers the person up to 25,000 dollars. I get a letter in the mail from state farm stating this policy has covered all but 22.84 but that I owe them 9300. They claim it is for the person who was hit by the person I hit. And for recovery of highway rail damage. These are not stated in the letter. I have already received a bill from the state for the highway damage. I don't know my rights in this situation and I don't want to be sued for money I don't owe. Please help

I was helping my brother in law work on his roof, I lost my

I was helping my brother in law work on his roof, I lost my balance and fell backwards through the roof about 13 feet onto the concrete slab. I fractured the L1, L2, L3 and L4 Transverse Process all on the right side. I hired a local attorney right after the accident, they called me today to discuss the case. They said that the homeowners insurance was not going to accept liability because I voluntarily went up on the roof and that they were not going to go forward with the case. I don't get it, I thought homeowners insurance was supposed to cover accidents; which most of are caused by people putting themselves in that place voluntarily!! I need another opinion, I don't think this is right; I am going to have $7000-$10,000 in medical bills when its all said and done.

This post if for CalAttorney2 ONLY: Mr., my Memo in

This post if for CalAttorney2 ONLY: Hey, Mr. B, my Memo in Opposition to Defendant's' MSJs is coming along slowly, and reading it I'm growing less pessimistic. Anyway, I just discovered another possible aid: negligence per se. Both defendants are operating as if the written, detailed protocols required by KS law did not exist, so that's one leg of establishing the per se business; the other, though, is a little more difficult: showing that if they had maintained and followed a set of protocols, they would never have ordered me abruptly off prednisone. It's not strong, but it's something. So now, I want to check out the legislative history of the law, K.S.A. 65-1130(d). So what does this mean? History: L. 1983, ch. 206, § 2; L. 1989, ch. 192, § 1; L. 1999, ch. 115, § 1; L. 2011, ch. 114, § 44; Jan. 1, 2012. Can I get to this stuff online? How?

This query is for CalAttorney2 ONLY: Mr.. I'm still working

This query is for CalAttorney2 ONLY: Mr. B. I'm still working on my memorandum in opposition to defendants' motions for summary judgment. I want to include among my exhibits perhaps a half-dozen treatments of the steroid-adrenal crisis nexus, but the most authoritative books I have are huge, too fat to get a clear copy on the copiers available to me. The controlling pretrial order says “copies of exhibits, including x-rays and medical articles may be used instead of the original, provided they are clearly legible, are not marked or highlighted, and are complete.”If I could afford to buy these books, I could just remove the relevant pages and copy them, but I cannot afford to buy them (and besides, my long-dead mother would rise from her grave and berate me severely). I'm wondering if I can photograph the pages or if I can type out the relevant text on my computer and attach a photograph of the books and the pages, showing enough detail to validate the typed work is an accurate representation. Any ideas?

A personal injury firm has sent me a retainer

A personal injury firm has sent me a retainer agreement/contract that would provide them with 40% of any settlement/award, regardless of the circumstances (even if the case settled without litigating). I know attorneys determine their own terms (within certain guidelines), but this seems particularly excessive to me. Is it worth 'bartering' the terms, or is it best to just move on? I realize if I don't ask, I won't know - but I find this really off-putting. They're located in another state. Is that typically a factor in expecting a higher percentage? I don't anticipate that the case will involve much travel for my case specifically. They're not the only firm interested, but it would be unfortunate for financial terms between client/attorney to be the deciding factor.
