Please keep in mind that our conversation does not include an attorney-client relationship and this is for general information purposes only.
I see. What happened to this guy that he wants to sue? Did he get hurt?
I see. Do you have liability insurance to help with this? Just kicking the tires on this situation.
I see. So did Cesar work for you at all as an employee?
I see. So in this case, there are a few things to consider:
1. You should consider trying to just settle this out of court;
2. If that's not possible, then you may have to defend this claim;
3. If you weren't responsible for Cesar and if you weren't responsible for the accident, she will have to prove that you're responsible;
4. The "apparent agency" argument is flimsy and it suggests that she has no responsibility to find out who Cesar is employed by and somehow prevents Cesar from taking responsibility for her injuries. As such, consider a settlement, but if not, try that defense.
I'm not. I'm south of there! I'm in CA, but not LA.
I don’t have any specific contacts; however, I can do the next best thing.
One of the hardest things, but usually the lawyers who pay the most in advertising can get bumped up to be on the first page regardless of their quality. One thing I recommend is going through your state’s lawyer referral service (LRS). The LRS in each state typically requires the attorney to have several years of practice, be free of discipline, and have adequate staffing to assist people. Below is a link to a website that compiles the state lawyer referral services:
Sometimes, the local law schools can provide free legal assistance, too.
