    It sounds like you are still injured since you are still having headaches and having difficulty walking on the side of your body that was injured. The persistent headaches suggest you may have suffered a head injury (concussion). These sound like serious injuries and you are entitled to recover the costs of all of your medical expenses, lost wages and compensation for pain and suffering. It is impossible to know how much because you are still hurt, but it likely would be a significant...

    It is impossible to answer your question at this time, because it is unknown as to when you will recover from the exacerbation of the first concussion. While most people recover from the effects of a concussion, your chances of a full recovery decrease with each successive concussion. That is why this has become such a serious issue in the NFL with sending players back into games before they have recovered from concussions. Unfortunately for you, you were injured while still suffering the...

    I would suggest that you report this to your insurance company. They will pay your damages, less your deductible, and they will go after the other insurance company to get their money and your deductable back. This way you won't have to chase your insurance company down. If you were injured I would strongly suggest that you consult with a personal injury lawyer. Good luck.

    Just because the hospital says you are OK, does not mean that you are not hurt. If you are having pain, then you should consult with a specialist. You are entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. The amount you are entitled to for pain and suffering will depend on the extent and duration of your injuries. I would suggest that you consult with a Maryland personal injury lawyer. The initial consultation is free and you do not pay a fee unless...

    The wrongdoer is responsible for all reasonable out of pocket expenses you incur as result of their negligence. If you now need to hire someone to do something that you ordinarily could have done on your own, then in my opinion you would be entitled to compensation. Unfortunately, the insurance company is not likely to agree, which is why you need a good lawyer fighting for you. In addition, a concussion, as you must already be aware, can be a very serious injury. You are entitled to...

    It sounds like you have a very serious case. You will not get fair compensation without a lawyer, because the insurance company will not take you seriously. I would strongly recommend that you obtain a free consultation from a highly qualified personal injury lawyer. There is too much information to consider for you to get good advice in this forum. You can use AVVO's find a lawyer tool - look for lawyers who have the highest AVVO rating. You should also look for lawyers who are A-V...

    I will answer both of your questions. Do you have a case? - the answer is a definite yes. When another car strikes you from the rear, in most situations the rearending driver is responsible for the damages that he or she caused. That includes damage to your vehicle, hospital and medical expenses, and any lost wages that you incur. It also includes compensation for pain, suffering, and inconvenience. Should you sue? That is a personal decision. However, you likely won't have to "sue"...

    I would strongly suggest that you contact a personal injury attorney before you speak with anyone. You have two claims, a workers' compensation claim and a claim against the negligent driver. This can be fairly complicated and you should not try to do this on your own.

    If you were injured, you probably should contact a lawyer. A case against a police officer or the county or city, has special hurdles which you have to jump through, depending on the state. You will likely need a lawyer to get it right. If you don't get it right within the time frame that the law says that you have to do so, you could lose the right to make a claim. You also may have a much more limited time to file your claim then you would if it was just against a regular driver.
