My son was almost beating to death by three men. One of them used a baseball bat. It happened a year ago. We had a attorney that was going to handle the suit but he sent us a letter yesterday saying he wouldn't be able to handle the case because it was an intentional act and he wouldn't get the money back that he spent litigating the case.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
Although you didn't tell us your State (See red lettered Notice, above) you may be entitled to money under your State's Victims of Violent Crimes Act. Inquire through your State's Attorney General Office. They will send you the forms.
Your attorney is correct. There's no money in this matter for him / her because what happened to your son is an "intentional tort" and no insurance will cover the liability of such an act. And, if the defendants are given to using baseball bats as weapons, it's a sure bet they don't own anything to attach to pay damages to your son. Sure, a judgment is good for up to 20 years, and in that time the defendants are bound to own something, or have jobs with wages that can be garnished, but who wants to wait for their Attorney fee money?
