    I have handled many claim very similar to the one you are describing. It's unfortunate that the insurance company is taking this position, especially since you were not at fault. This can be a difficult claim, at first, because you where the driver that rear ended another driver. I would highly recommend that you contact an experienced accident attorney, especially if you received personal injuries in the accident, in order to get the insurance company to accept liability.

    I'm sorry to hear about your injuries. I currently have a client that suffered a broken jaw as a result of a fall, and I understand how painful and frustrating your injuries likely are. I would highly suggest that you hire an attorney to file a claim on your behalf. The property owner will try to argue that the condition was open and obvious to you, or in your case, that the cause of the fall was a result of drinking alcohol. However, since the fall occurred in parking lot for a bar, the...

    I'm sorry to hear about your injury. I know that burn injuries can be very painful. I'm sure the scar is a constant reminder of this injury. You have a very good question. The answer will often require a consultation with a workers compensation attorney and a review of the medical records to determine the amount of compensation. Generally, you may be allowed compensation for the scar and any disfigurement. The amount of compensation would depend on your compensation rate, the type of scar,...

    You have sustained serious and permanent injuries. You should seek the maximum amount of insurance coverage that the at fault driver has, along with any personal property that could be collected. If you have underinsured motorist coverage, I would recommend obtaining full limits. Hiring a highly rated lawyer is a very important set in getting the most compensation for your injuries.

    Temporary total benefits payments are generally limited to 500 weeks unless your injury qualifies for benefits for life (permanent brain injury, paraplegia, etc.). At some point you may be able to qualify for permanent partial or permanent total benefits depending on the nature of your claim. We wish you all the best in the recovery of your injuries. Robert F.

    If you were subpoenaed, then you must attend the court proceedings. Without knowing more, more than likely, you were subpoenaed to attend the traffic court proceeding on behalf of the police officer to testify as to how the accident happened. Unless the police officer witnessed the accident, the officer cannot testify that the other driver caused the accident. He will need testimony from witnesses to the incident to prove that the other driver caused the collision. If you experienced any...

    I'm sorry to hear about your injuries. Neck injuries can be very painful and debilitating. Based on the nature of your injury, I would strongly suggest that you hire an experienced workers compensation attorney in order to fully answer this question. If you are unable to work due to your injuries, and have impairment to your neck, you may be entitled to obtain significant compensation for disability, either partial or total, through workers compensation. You are also entitled to life...

    In order to give you a completely correct answer, more information is likely needed. Typically, an owner of livestock has a legal obligation to keep them out of the roads which could likely lead to injuries to a motorist. I believe you may have a strong case but you would need to consult with a South Carolina attorney to be sure.
