    It is not possible to give you an accurate answer with the information you provided. When valuing a case you need to look at liability( in Maryland contributory negligence), the amount, quality and kind of medical treatment, the jurisdiction (where can suit be brought if necessary), the plaintiff (will he or she be sympathetic, etc), the defendant, the insurance company your dealing with, how well injuries can be established ,etc. What I can say is that trying to do it yourself is almost...

    It will be difficult to pursue this case after two years, but not impossible. First, although you probably already know this, you should have gotten an attorney immediately after the collision. All tractors involved in tractor trailer accidents are automatically inspected by DOT for safety violations. Also, they all contain the equivalent of a "black box" that will provide information on how fast the truck was going, when it hit the brakes, etc. This information would need to be downloaded by...

    Answering your question takes more information than you have provided. I would want to know whether a CT scan was taken at the emergency room, what follow up treatment you received, what symptoms you had and still have. When I have a client with a mild concussion (also know as a mild TBI or traumatic brain injury), I make sure they see a neurologist and usually have them see a neuropsychologist before I even consider settlement. Assuming the CT scan (the gold standard for brain bleeds) is...

    Your daughter and her son may have a claim for medical negligence. Consider taking your grandson to a plastic surgeon that specializes in reconstruction. You may want to make sure the doctor is not affiliated with the first doctor or hospital. Your number one goal should be the wellbeing of the child. You can also start preserving evidence for a malpractice case if there is a deformity or he has problems. Take notes (start a journal), take pictures, if you take him to a plastic surgeon make...

    I need a few more facts. If you are not an excluded driver (specifically listed as not covered), and you were driving then you are probably not covered on that policy. If you are not excluded, you are probably covered. If you were not driving (the carjacker was at the wheel), you are probably covered. Also, do you live with your mom? If not, and you were driving with her permission or were not driving you are probably covered. Also, if you have your own insurance or a relative in your household...

    You should consult an attorney for your injuries. Your friend is responsible whether he went off the road to avoid a deer or was drunk. If you lie and say you were driving you will also need a criminal lawyer. Do not lie. You can still testify your friend went off the road to avoid a deer.

    If you feel you are injured, get medical attention immediately. If you are hurt, there is a good chance you child is also hurt so get the baby evaluated by the baby's pediatrician as soon as you can. If you reported it to the police, hopefully they charged/blamed the other driver. However, If you didn't tell them you were hurt and you could drive your car, the chances are not report was made. You need to report the claim to your insurance company regardless of who you feel is at fault. Your...

    Adding to the other answers, when you rent a vehicle you tell the rental agency whether or not you have insurance. If you say no, they will require you to purchase their coverage which should have PIP. If you have your own coverage, unless you waived PIP, you have coverage under your own vehicle. A rental is considered a temporary replacement for your vehicle so your coverage stays in affect for the rental. Good luck.

    This may be controlled by the boulevard rule. If the lights are out, the vehicle on the "main " road has the right of way and would be the favored vehicle. The vehicle on the side road would be the unfavored vehicle that must yield to the right of way. The question will be which vehicle was your vehicle. As a passenger, you may have a claim no matter which vehicle you are in. Unfortunately, the police get it wrong frequently. You or your attorney should call the officer (or his supervisor if...

    I am answering from my phone so I will be short. First, you cannot win a claim against Walmart without an attorney. I have had numerous claims against Walmart and the fight even the clear liability claims. The have video in the produce isles, but you need to request it immediately and tell them to preserve it or they will destroy it unless it shows it is not their fault. Without medical treatment you will not have a claim worth pursuing. If you are hurt you need to be evaluated. Also, Walmart...
