    Claims against government are no day at the park. Before 'doing nothing' becomes the only option, consult with an experienced personal injury attorney in your jurisdiction. Injury cases against the government anywhere present deadlines and challenges. The reason? Government makes the rules you must fullow in suing them. Here's more: BLUE LINK BELOW

    Keep the receipt. Too bad you likely did not retain the evidence. Report to the local health department. As far as case value, fortunately you will likely recover quickly. I'm not going to ask how you could eat more than a half of a bite of raw chicken, but their insurance company will. Emotional distress? Here's more: BLUE LINK BELOW

    Proving an injury was the result of an auto accident requires a medical narrative from a physician establishing that the injury is causally related to a reasonable degree of medical certainty. AVVO is a great informational and marketing site for attorneys. But, you need to retain an attorney. Pre existing conditions are not unusual to experienced personal injury attorneys, we confront such issues regularly. Here is a summary: BLUE LINK BELOW

    You are likely being lowballed. It is tough to know without knowing all of the facts. But, I highly encourage you to retain an experienced personal injury attorney in your jurisdiction. The insurance industry's own statistics - not mine or those of injury attorneys - confirm that unrepresented claimants receive far lower settlements than those who are represented.

    The founders of our nation initiated the first insurance pools in the USA in order to allocate risk and to assure that those who sustain losses are taken care of by all responsible folks who pay into the insurance pool. Where you elected to drive with minimum coverage and without registration, I highly suggest that you take all of the money that you saved and consult with an attorney to review the actual fact and to determine the best course for yourself and your passenger. There are too...

    Where you have many questions about your own case you need to have a sit down consultation with your own attorney to review your concerns and get a realistic view of trial options. A trial is not magic and the courthouse is not a cash drawer. It is hard work and there's no reason to reject your attorney without a full fair review of issues.

    Negotiation does not come with time limits or a fixed limitation upon the number of offers. It is over when the client, in consultation with their attorney, receives an offer that they believe is fair. Sometimes it can take longer than one would like. Remember, there is no law that negotiations must lead to settlement. It is why there are courthouses and constitutional guarantees for redress of civil wrongs.

    The answers provided here are by volunteers. We do our best, but most of the attorneys here are busy practitioners who are required to devote their time and resources to their caseload and come into the site in any spare time. My suggestion is to seek a free consultation with an area attorney. Or, in my jurisdictions the state and county bar associations have referral services that assist people to find an attorney, even a low-fee or no-fee if qualified.

    Based on the facts you've given us, yes you can file at this point. Your new bankruptcy attorney needs to be made aware of the previous filing so it can be reviewed. I've had people come to me who have had 3 or 4 previous filings and dismissals and I never take their cases. They are known as "serial filers" and a trustee or judge will spend extra time scrutinizing the filing looking for issues. However, in your case, your reason for the one previous dismissal is pretty clear and if you...

    Personal injury settlements, as long as they are for pain and suffering and not wage replacement, are non taxable. When an attorney handles your personal injury claim they are certain to designate the settlement to pain and suffering and therefore personal injury settlements are a non taxable event. Deposits by check are not reported. Only cash deposits of $10,000 or more are required to be reported to treasury. Depositing a check "as cash" would trigger this reporting requirement, but if...
