Q: 

What is the estimate for pain and suffer for car accident?

A:  I assume your insurance company has already settled the Collision claim with you, haven''t they? You should have received the ACV for the damage to the vehicle. However, some insurance company''s will offer to actually replace your vehicle if it is less than one year old and has less than 15K miles on it. Some will use the Bill of Sale and deduct for mileage. You cannot profit from the collision claim. You do not state where the accident occurred. Do you have PIP coverage which has paid for your medical expenses? What exactly is you injury? In my experience, if you treated with these three providers, you have over treated. The treatment is redundant, and not entirely reasonable. Did this loss happen to occur in NY? This is typical treatment fueled by attorneys. ...

Q: 

Is the proposed flag burning amendment constitutional? What are the potential side effects if this amendment is adopted?

A:  The whole point of a constitutional amendment is to try to accomplish something that is NOT constitutional. If it were, you wouldn''t need the amendment. Once an amendment takes effect, then the Constitution is changed. That''s why we treat constitutional amendments like hot coals.So the fact that there is a proposed flag-burning amendment at all arises out of state and federal laws criminalizing flag-burning having been struck down as unconstitutional by the supreme court. One of those decisions, Texas v. Johnson (1989), is my all-time favorite supreme court opinion. Justice Brennan''s majority opinion reads like great literature. The court...

Q: 

supreme court justices are often active in the selection of new justices, advising the president as to whom he should pick

A:  The most obvious positive benefit of this would be that the justices who are already on the court would be more likely to respect and to be able to work with the new nominee. A second positive impact would be that supreme court nominees would probably be picked more on legal merit than on politics if the justices themselves had more of a say in the process. The major negative would be that the court would sort of tend to clone itself.  There would be less likelihood of new blood (ideologically speaking) coming onto the court. An advantage is that the supreme court justices are the best legal scholars in the country,...

Q: 

How does the Bill of Rights and the US supreme court regulate the police?

A:  The Bill of Rights, as interpreted by the supreme court and other courts, regulates the police by dictating to them what procedures they may and may not use in trying to apprehend suspects and gather evidence about them. The most important part of the Bill of Rights in this regard is the 4th Amendment.  court interpretations of this amendment regulate when police need warrants to search people and property. Another important amendment is the 5th Amendment.  It is this amendment which gave rise to the famous Miranda case which requires police to read suspects their rights. The 4th and 5th amendments are paramount in limiting police power for how they can treat suspects or those they arrest,...

Q: 

What is the process of legal immigration into the U.S.?

A:  Applying for a tourist visa costs around $130, on top of the expenses necessary to go to a consulate if there isn''t one in the city where one lives. You need to demontrate that you have the resources to pay for your stay in the U.S., and that you have ties to your original country of residence, so that you''d go back afterwards. Evidently, many people don''t have these resources. To get a work visa, your potential employer needs to do all the paperwork, and there''s a limit to the number of visas given on any year. it''s really expensive also I have another question – I''ve been TRYING to find more information on this bill, but its near impossible with all the news articles that come up in my search.. if you KNOW the facts of the bill maybe you can help me out.

Q: 

What law field makes the most money? And what law field is the most successful overall?

A:  It seems to me you are looking for the easiest yet highest paid? I''d like to ask you a question: What color is the sky in your world? At the moment, patent law has the highest entry position salary and the most in demand with probably the least in competition but you would need an engineering degree with a GPA of 3.5 to be considered competitive for law school.

Q: 

What is the lowest auto insurance company?

A:  Trick answer: Since you did not put any restrictions on their eligibility requirements, the least expensive auto insurance comes from the United Services Automobile Association. The trick is you had to have been in the service. Are you a vet? If you are, you''ve heard of them. Everyone wants the cheapest auto insurance. Everyone is constantly looking comparing this auto insurance provider with this one. It''s almost like a parlor game, isn''t it. I''ve done it too. If you''ve ever gotten a speeding ticket or have a young teenager itching to drive that you''ve just added to your policy or if you''ve been<!--involved in an accident, it can get more and more expensive, can''t it? Auto insurance is too expensive. You''re not alone. it''s true for almost every American family.You may get...

Q: 

Briefly identify the U.S. supreme court findings in the case of Kent v United States (1966)

A:  Put briefly, the importance of this case is that supreme court gave more rights to juvenile defendants.  In this case, the court said that juvenile courts had to give defendants more due process rights than they had been even though cases in these juvenile courts are not technically criminal cases (they are technically civil cases). In the actual case, the court''s ruling was that the juvenile court acted illegally when it sent the case of Morris Kent to a a regular (adult) criminal court.  This was illegal because Kent had not had sufficient attention paid to his due process rights at the...
