    You can sue but it would cost a lot more than a thousand dollars to hire a lawyer to represent you. Your best bet is small claims court. The owner would be the direct target and possibly the motel owner if it was aware of the presence of a vicious/unleashed dog on its premises.

    As the previous answers indicate, the right to make a claim against your own coverage, after exhausting the defendant's coverage is generally created by uninsured/supplemental under insured i.e. UM/SUM coverage. The terms of each policy differ but all are governed by the applicable state law, and generally include a requirement that you request your carrier's permission before compromising the underlying claim. If they grant it, or fail to respond within thirty days to written request, you...

    If you choose to sue, you will be suing the driver/owner of the other car, not the insurance company. HIs insurance company will provide an attorney to represent him and pay the damages if you win. the insurance company is only obligated to pay the policy limits. the per person limit is what applies to you, since you are the only person injured and making a claim. so if the per person limit is $5, then the most you can get is $5.

    It's impossible to say whether the amount is "correct" or more accurately reasonable without additional information relating to how the accident happened, your general health before it happened, the amount of treatment you recieved, etc. In general, a concussion without more is not a very serious injury. However, if you are suffering long term effects such as headaches, memory loss, cognitive function loss i.e. thinking problems.

    Attorneys Adams and McCormick are correct. The most important issue is to attend to your health and that of your daughter. Then seek out an experienced personal injury attorney.

    Unfortunately, the answer is: probably. Hopefully the car was insured and the assigned adjuster or his boss is a decent enough person to refrain from burdening the parents with a monetary claim when they are faced with the loss of their child. If not, they will probably be held responsible.

    It's not a personal injury case but it is a tort case, which is also the category into which personal injury claims fall. The term for this type of claim is "alienation of affection" and it is actionable in New York. While you may have a case, this type of "injury" is not covered by insurance, so the value of the case will be limited by (among other things) whether this woman has any assets to make you whole.

    Generally you cant sue an employer who provides workers comp insurance, but if another party is responsible for the condition that caused her to fall she can bring an action against it.

    It's not clear whether the original injury was job related. If it was, since you were worried about the mounting bill it sounds like your employer might not have provided worker's compensation coverage as it is obligated to do. If this is the case, you can pursue a claim for damages against your employer if the original injury was caused by your employers negligence or a violation of New York Labor Law which is very strict, and very pro employee. If the original injury was job related you...

    You should report the accident to your insurance company immediately if the damage is extensive. If you have collision coverage your insurance company will generally be primarily responsible for the damage and they can go after the truck's insurance, instead of leaving it to you. Most property damage claims are not large enough to involve an attorney on a contingency fee basis and too small to warrant paying a lawyer out of pocket so its best to let the insurance company argue the case for...
