Should i hire a personal injury lawyer
JC Reindl Detroit Free Press Published 6:00 AM EDT Sep 7, 2018 Michigan motorists are very familiar with the special fee in their no-fault car insurance bills — currently $192 per year — that is specifically for the care and medical bills of the most catastrophically injured auto accident victims. It is less known that the no-fault system allows lawyers to take a one-third cut of these victims' benefit money indefinitely, even for the life of a crash survivor. That is what happened to Michael Powers, 51, of Lapeer, who has been a paraplegic since a 1993 auto accident caused by a drunk driver. For years and until last December, one-third of his no-fault benefits money for in-home nursing aides went to a personal injury attorney. That arrangement limited how much he could pay his aides, he said, and ended only after Powers says he learned from another … [Read more...] about No-fault lawyer took fees from injured car crash victims

FORT LEE, N.J. — A young man wearing a baseball cap sat alone in his convertible at the drive-through lane of a Dunkin’ Donuts here, the top down on a warm October afternoon, waiting to order Munchkins and coffee. He did not notice, from behind, the approach of a man carrying a baseball bat. The stranger smashed the bat into the back of the driver’s head and ran away. The driver, dazed and bleeding, lurched his car out of the line and crashed into another vehicle on Bergen Boulevard. The attack was as brief as it was brutal, but it was long in the making. A couple of years, at least, perhaps longer. The yearnings of the heart don’t come with time stamps, and long-game acts of deceit and betrayal don’t lend themselves to simple when-and-where entries on police reports. The chain of events that led to and followed that attack would not be a straight one, but a twisting series of seemingly random and bizarre actions and reactions no one could have seen … [Read more...] about A new wife, a secret past, and a trail of loss and blood
About a dozen pairs of tiny shoes are piled up in Nicolle and Kyle Peltier’s North Minneapolis entryway on a July day, and noise comes from around the corner: giggles, barefoot sprints and wrestling. A couple of toy trucks hum. But when a dolphin toy squeals, the young couple cringes. “No, for the love of God, not that toy!” Mom shakes a bottle for 8-month-old Millie. Dad holds the head and neck brace of 2-year-old Kayden as he tries to walk. The Peltiers’ priest, the Rev. Paul Jarvis, wrangles the children into the playroom. Nicolle Peltier said that having seven kids, all younger than 9, is like turning on a blender without a lid. “Usually I manage to put a plate over half the top,” she said. But lately, the Peltier’s house has been more than chaotic. It’s tainted with memories that go unspoken in front of the children. A calendar booked with hospital appointments. A cozy living room that’s been transformed into an in-home … [Read more...] about They were at the playground. Then a driver pursued by police changed everything.
