I was hit by...

I was hit by a taxi with company insurance in CA. But I live in Hawaii and they will not pay for me to get the medical help I need. What can I do?

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a CA lawyer about this?

Yes and he says nothing can be done unless I come back to CA.

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

Preliminary medical treatment and MRI, I have torn rotator cuff. Now I am unable to see someone to correct the problem. I was hit from the rear, police report showing the taxi was at fault.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I was a passenger in the vehicle, and my health insurance won’t cover it.

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

I suggest that you reach out to other lawyers; you don't necessarily have to reach out to a California lawyer. There is no reason that a Hawaii attorney couldn't negotiate with the company insurance to get a settlement from the insurance company. Additionally, you should also look for other CA lawyers because there is no reason that you should have to be in California to have the lawyer reach a settlement on your behalf. Just sounds like you might have called the wrong lawyer to begin with and you should do a little more research for other lawyers.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
