    Here's the deal: unless you have actual medical treatment both due to the extent of the injury, but also to document the fact of the damages, it is very unlikely that you have a claim that an attorney would take. You had a callous by the "manicurist" and owner. But, a bad day in the salon does not rise to the level of a legally compensible injury. Some time ago a very bright and aggressive legal assistant in my office had "a bad day" in the salon and I gave her that advice. She accepted...

    False. Insurance companies are part of the financial services sector of the economy. This means they must generate a profit by collecting premiums, making investments and minimizing payment on claims. The insurance industry's own statistics - not those of any attorney - indicate that injured claimants who retain attorneys obtain far higher settlements and verdicts than the unrepresented. That's why they discourage unrepresented people from retaining counsel. Here's more: BLUE LINK BELOW

    No two pieces of litigation are alike and I say that after 20+ years of trial experience in motor vehicle accident and other personal injury cases. The attorney can best evaluate the factors that are considered in determining how the injuries affected you and how a court is likely to respond. The attorney can also explain the process of civil litigation, which includes discovery and preparation.

    Workers compensation and associated personal injury concerns are a specialty area. You can only go so far with the Q & A format on the computer even with a good web service like AVVO. So, I recommend that you make some calls today and set up a consultation with a workers compensation attorney ASAP to preserve your rights. Best luck and here's a general article on worker's compensation to read while you wait:

    Determining fair value of a personal injury claim requires detailed evaluation of many factors. The numbers posted cover only part of what is required. The insurance industry's own statistics, not those of any attorney, indicate that those who represent themselves end up with far less than those who have an attorney.

    Worker's compensation does not compensate for normal average flu. Workers compensation can address actual wear and tear injuries if they are diagnosed by a physician who indicates that they are causally related to duties of employment. With all respect, I'd remove the hyperbole regarding drive for production - that's what all employers want - and stature. But, if you do in fact have a diagnosed wear and tear injury there may be something. Consult with a workers compensation attorney in...

    Hopefully a person who has never flown a plane before would never attempt to fly a commercial jetliner, and as the plane is hurtling down the runway for takeoff, post questions on a website "what do I do now, how do I get the speeding plane's nose up?" You need to retain an experienced employment attorney who knows the process. Otherwise, having read AVVO posts for years, you will be one of the posters asking something to the effect that "now that I have lost my case, how do I appeal the...
