Legal Answers
3 Questions Answered

Q. I have a work comp case in Nd. Will there be a cash settlement after I have recovered from my broken back or maybe not
A: There are many factors which come into play when answering your question. It is likely that your best chance for a cash recovery would be if you were injured by a third-party who was not an employee of your your employer. I recommend that you consult with an attorney in North Dakota who specializes in personal injury law.
Q. A person I sued after I was injured on their business's property requested we arbitrate instead. Is this a good idea?
A: There are many benefits to arbitration, most particularly it is typically much faster than a state court lawsuit. That said, if you are unrepresented by counsel I would be weary of agreeing to arbitration. Arbitration is a lot like a trial. I have never heard of an injury matter being arbitrated. In arbitration, the arbitrator or panel of arbitrators will decide your case and you will not have the benefit of a jury. You should also know that in arbitration, unlike a court case, there is typically no appeals process. If you are unrepresented by an attorney, I recommend you consult with/retain one because you will be at a severe disadvantage at both arbitration or trial without one. If you have retained an attorney, you should consult with them about this issue.
Q. My son damaged a vehicle while at school. What is my responsibilities and what are my rights in the matter?
A: There are several things about this that are unusual. Are you saying you received a letter from the insurance company for the other car or your insurance company? I find it odd that an insurance company is threatening to "take your driver's license." An insurance company does not have that power. Assuming it is a letter from the other insurance company, I would recommend you contact you insurance company. Have you verified that your child actually damages a vehicle? Assuming he did not hit or damage a vehicle this could be a scam. Again I recommend speaking with your insurance company and/or have an attorney review this situation in more detail.
