    You should contact an attorney to review both claims, and to confirm that formal claims have been filed with the WCC. As for doing a different type of work, you may qualify for vocational rehabilitation. This is one of the many things an attorney can assist you with.

    You should contact an attorney to discuss the incident and stop talking to the insurance company. Timing is always important. How much time has passed since the incident? Are you still in pain? Do you have a car with insurance? If not, does someone else in your household have a car with insurance? Does either policy include PIP coverage? Did you give a recorded statement to the insurance company? These are the types of questions you should be prepared to answer when consulting with an attorney.

    Additional information is needed, for example did your Uncle own the “dump?” Did he have a will? Besides you and your brother, what other relatives were alive at the time your Uncle passed? Do you anticipate any of those relatives challenging your brother’s ability to act as personal representative? You should contact a probate attorney for a consultation.

    You should contact a workers' comp attorney to file a claim. If a claim is accepted, the employer's insurance company will cover your medical bills and you can receive compensation for the days you are out of work. There may even be a light duty option for you at work. Each WCC claim is fact specific, your attorney will help you navigate the process.
