What if the other driver doesn’t have enough insurance?

Comments Off

If your attorney told you that the other driver has no inurance and that you cannot collect money from a deadbaet: read on.

If your lawyer told you that the other driver has a minimum inurance policy and that the insurance is inadequate, and that you will not be able to collect all of your losses: read on.

Thirty per cent (30%) of drivers who injure people are on their cell phone. That is "distracted driving". Most of those "distracted drivers" are talking about work. Your attroney needs to get the cell phone records from the other driver.

If they tell you that there is no, or inadequate, insurance, ask the attorney if she or he got the cell phone records.

If the driver was using a cell phone for work, the employer’s insurance is available to pay for your losses.

Thanks to Ira Leesfield from Miami for this idea.

Lawyers who are serious about helping injured people, belong to the natioanl organizations that represent the interests of people, and learn about new ideas like the one that I learned about from Ira!

The American Association of Justice (AAJ) is the premier organization. That is where I heard Ira give this cell phone advice.

How do you find a lawyer? If they do not belong to each and every of the following organizations, they are not a lawyer or law firm that I would choose:

The Hawaii Association of Justice (HAJ)

The American Association of Justice (AAJ)

The Center for Justice & Democracy (CJ&D)

Public Citizen

Public Justice

If a lawyer tells you that they "represent injured people" in any kind of injury case (medical malpractice, automobile accidents, defective products, etc. …) they should belong to all of these organizations if they want to be fully advised about your case. There are far too many law firms that just want to make money and don’t really care about the true value of their clients’ losses. Lawyers must network with colleagues across the country if they hope to be fully aware for their clients. Few law firms belong to all of these support groups. You don’t have to believe me. Check out the websites of these organizations and you will see why any lawyer doing personal injury work should be a member of each organization.

Does this make sense?
