I have a question regarding an auto accident personal injury

I have a question regarding an auto accident personal injury settlement. The insurance company sent a settlement offer (very low) I then called and told them what I thought was fair and they raised their offer $1800. The problem is I do not think that is fair. I've done research online and used the 1.5-5 multiplier and their final offer is lower than what it would be if I used a 1 multiplier. Their client rear-ended me and I hurt my knee. I had a CT Scan and Xray which did not show a break or tear. However my normal activities have been affected by this injury. I used to walk three miles everyday, I can barely walk one. I used to wear heels everyday all day and now can barely make it through half a day without putting on my slippers. My knee gives me problems in the cold and with activity still today. My medical bills total $4,090.00 and lost wages total $960.00. I was in treatment for nearly 6weeks. It has been 9 months since the accident which occurred on October 21, 2015. The insurance first offer was $7300 and then after I called to decline it they raised it to $9,000. I am just wanting to know if this is a fair offer. I feel my pain and suffering will increase as I get older. I've been diagnosed with anxiety and I have had to raise my dosage of insomnia meds because of what my lifestyle has been limited to since my knee injury.

In my move to FL in Feb 2015 Allied Van Lines lost a large

In my move to FL in Feb 2015 Allied Van Lines lost a large original ***** *****vingston Bull painting of mine. They denied loss and we agreed to binding arbitration through the organization American Movers And Storage program managed by (an apparently neutral company) the National Arbitration Forum.The appointed arbitrator, the Honorable Charles A. Kuechenmeister, determined in my favor on the first two issues: that I proved that Allied received the missing picture and that they failed to deliver it to me but on the third requirement, demonstrating the amount of damages, concluded that the 4 valuations I provided made him "have to guess" at my painting's value which he "wasn't willing to extrapolate" and so found that i "failed to prove value" and therefore I "failed to meet my burden of proof".Thus, an arbitrator found Allied responsible for my loss but let them off the hook, as I see it, on a technicality. Rule 19 of the Forum states that the arbitrator can, if he feels it would be helpful in making his determination, ask either party to submit more information. If he thought justice was important, he could have asked me to provide a specific valuation rather than the 4 estimates of smaller Bull paintings I provided. (I did get an estimate of value from an expert on illustration art in NYC of $5000 for my stolen Bull painting (I won't bore you with the reasons I say stolen).What if any recourse do I have?Craig Nielsen

This is a civil law question. I am being sued student loans

This is a civil law question. I am being sued for 2 student loans that went unpaid. I was served yesterday. The paperwork does not have a court date, but does tell me to respond to the court and the attorney representing the student loan. I have a low income to debt ratio, I pay over $1200 a month on student loan payments (income less than 42k), without these two added in, plus other bills. I called the lawyers office, they only offered me a settlement, which I cannot pay. Does it make sense to send a letter to the court explaining the financial difficulties? Sending statements of bills? Or is this not going to help?

I informed one member of the Board of my condo ourmanagement company Hoag had its license revoked in 2000 by State Attorney General, whom found $53,000 missingfrom trust funds at the same time our condo had money in trust funds with the mamagement company Hoag. 3 nonlicensed employees of Hoag took money out of trust funds.Theirlicense was reinstated in 2007. I included the full case to the Board member. But, she gave my letterto her to the management company. Now their lawyer is threatening to sue me for libel and I signedhis request not to say anything about the management co (Hoag). I said in my letter to her Hoag admittedto all charges, when in fact they did not admit to anything, but agreed to have license revoked.They signed off on all charges, yet didn't admit to anything.Full case was attached for her to see.Isn't my letter to her privileged ? Is that libel, when letter only given to her ? No malice, no monetary damages.I gave Hoag a cease and desist order for violating my free speech with cases.Lawyer is harassing me because I tried to get Hoag kicked ou of our condo and also via 4 legal agencies got the office manager at Hoag removed. They want revenge.Can I send cease and demand letter for CA PENAL CODE 518,522,523Extorion by force of fear, letter and consent. It is believed by Zaludek, thatunlawful means were used to secure Zaludek's signature on an attempted, or successfulextortion scheme.. I am going on Board now and they want me not to go on.

Suing without a lawyer... What do I have to look forward to?

Suing without a lawyer... What do I have to look forward to? After one year of being with an attorney I'm now on my own. I ran out of money. We just filed the petition last week and I'm getting ready to serve it but my lawyer can't help me any more. In fact, I'm left to reading books about what I need to do. I'm suing a group of men for breach of fiduciary duty and defamation (among others), and the defendants lawyer is about to contact me for the first time since my lawyer has been off the case. I need to know how the process works... Anything you can tell me would be greatly appreciated. It's going to be pretty strange questioning the defendants on the stand, how do people in my situation do that?
