Ask Me Anything

Ask me anything…Attorney Ben Schwartz will answer any question you have. Send him a question and if he answers it in video format, he gives you his thoughts and a “Sweet Schwartz & Schwartz hat!”

Hey Folks, I am Attorney Ben Schwartz, and you can ask me anything!

Today we are going to answer some viewer questions. I got four viewer questions that we are going to go through. First Kate in Newark, Delaware says, I was watching the Johnny Depp/Amber Heard trial and it seems like there are a lot of objections, objection hearsay. Are most trials like that, you know combative? The answer is, not in most of the trials that I have been in. I have done a lot of jury trials since I started practicing law, you know more than twenty years ago I did a lot of criminal trials; a lot of felony trials. I would say that the criminal trials are more combative than the civil trials. The civil trials that I do these days tend to be personal injury cases or wrongful death cases. So, I would say the felony criminal trials are more combative than the personal injury wrongful death cases.

But even in the criminal trials, they were not like I could go through an entire, you know week-long trial or two-week-long trial maybe I had like five objections or ten objections. It would not be this constant objecting that just grates on the nerves of the judge, the other attorney, the litigants, and the jurors. So, what you are seeing on tv, if you want my opinion, I think they got cameras in the courtroom. It is a celebrity show trial. More than anything these attorneys are like vamping it up. Because this is going to be their, fifteen minutes of fame and so they are playing it up for the cameras. But no, most jury trials are not anything like that.

Secondly a viewer question from Wilmington, Delaware says some of your videos you look like you are carrying some weight. That is a very kind way of putting it. In some of your videos, you look like you lost a bunch of weight. What is up with that, and the answer is I was fat, but those videos were like a couple of years ago. I have lost a bunch of weight. Basically, when the pandemic hit, I started working from home. When I started working from home, I started having the time to sort of plan out what I am going to eat. I have lost a lot of weight. Once I started losing, I started running, I started riding the bike and I have sort of maintained that, and now that we are sort of coming out of this pandemic. I hope to continue it and I hope to maintain a healthy weight.

So, on that note my email address is ben.schwartz@schwartzandschwartz.com. I do not like to give people advice unnecessarily unless it is asked for. But if you have questions, if you are on your own journey, your healthy journey and you want to ask me a question or ask for tips, send me an email. I will be more than happy to have that conversation with you.

This question is from Amani somewhere in Kent County Delaware, she says I was rear-ended in a car accident and went to BayHealth Kent General Hospital in Dover. I tried to give them health insurance, but they want my car insurance, and they gave me a liability call back for them. I did not cause the accident, why should my car insurance have to pay it? It is a great question; the answer is because in Delaware we have what is called no-fault insurance. You can also call it personal injury protection or PIP for short. Under the way the law is in the state of Delaware if you are a resident of Delaware, you are driving a vehicle registered and insured in the state of Delaware, and you are going to be carrying personal injury protection. That pays for your medical bills and your lost wages too, after your car accident. And even though you may not have caused the accident it does not matter. It is no-fault insurance. It is a way they set up the law, is that your own insurance pays for your medical treatment under your personal injury protection insurance provision on your auto policy.

So, you should give the hospital, doctors, physical therapists, chiropractors, anywhere that you go for medical treatment as a result of your car accident, you should give them that PIP claims information, so that they can bill your auto insurance and that is the way it works in Delaware. It might not feel right if you did not cause the accident but trust me you paid a premium for that insurance and if you need it that is what it is there for.

Finally, Mike in Smyrna, Delaware says, I have been watching some of your videos and I see you have a “sweet Schwartz and Schwartz hat“. That’s right… How do I get one of those? The answer is, if you are watching this video if you send me an email and give me a question that I will use in another video, I will send you one of these hats. I have lots of hats, I got tons and tons and tons of them. I got boxes of them! I got them in blue with a gold logo. I got them in pink. I got them in camo. But send me a question, if I use it in a video, I will let you know, hey I am going to use your question in a video and I will get your address and I will send you a hat.

Folks, I am Attorney Ben Schwartz, and thanks for watching! If you have a question, send it to me.
