    a civil defense attorney. You might check out some personal injury attorneys to see if they also do defense of personal injury cases. This is the sort of case where you would most likely pay the attorney by the hour with an upfront retainer.

    I'm unclear what you mean by this, but in general, you can have your attorney send a "Letter of Protection" so that the doctor is assured of being paid from the proceeds of the lawsuit

    Yes, depending on the circumstances, the bar could be held liable for the actions of the bouncer, and in some cases will cover damages caused by their employees. Consult with a personal injury attorney in your area, they can help you sort out the potential claims

    Yes. Premise liability cases are difficult, and mere injury isn't going to get you anywhere. An experienced personal injury lawyer will be able to assess whether or not there is liability on the part of the grocery store.

    You don't state what you would countersue for. It doesn't appear that you were injured in anyway from the facts you state. What you should be filing are special defenses, not a countersuit. Talk to your defense lawyer about it, I'm sure they already have it planned.

    With today's technology, it is fairly easy to communicate, and even share documents, without ever meeting face to face. You do not need to be present in the US in order to maintain a claim for damages against someone. One small piece of advice, if you do treat overseas, get a copy of the medical records before you leave the country and send them to your attorney. Getting records and bills from overseas is very difficult, so just get them before you leave, it will made the process much easier.

    I depends on what the past criminal history is, and frankly, how likeable you are. While felony convictions involving dishonesty are admissible, it doesn't necessarily mean it will hurt your case. A good personal injury attorney can minimize the impact of a felony conviction by stressing how long ago it was, the path to rehabilitation, the good deeds done afterward, etc etc. And if a jury likes you, they aren't going to care about it.

    You can continue with the claim and submit your medical records and bills when you are finished treating. If you find their offer to still be unacceptable, you can sue the store.

    They can demand to inspect it if she is insisting your insurance company pay for the damage, sure. You don't have to accept the insurance company's determination of liability, if you believe she caused the accident and damage to your car, sue her in small claims (depending on the amount of damage) and let a judge decide who is at fault.
