This is posted under slip and fall. I am going to tag it under workers compensation as that is what I believe it is. So in workers compensation you don't file a lawsuit. It is a claim. There are some instances when you can file a lawsuit against a 3rd party that caused your injury but it sounds like the employer set up the parts in a dangerous manner. If that is the case then there is likely not a 3rd party lawsuit as workers compensation is a no fault system....meaning you can sue your...
I am sorry for your loss. Does the driver have personal auto insurance? You need to find that out as it may follow him. I doubt the rental car coverage, if any, would cover it and the amount is usually not a lot. I'd suggest speaking directly with a wrongful death lawyer.
In SC you are entitled to financial compensation for a lost tooth. More importantly you are entitled to life time repair replacement of the prosthetic teeth. Based upon the workers comp carrier fighting you over basic issues before, I'd recommend you consult with a lawyer to make sure you get ALL that you are entitled to.
Yes! This could be a workers comp claim and he would get 100% of medical coverage. Contact an experienced South Carolina workers comp attorney. The consultation is usually free, at least with me it is.
Take advantage of a free consultation. Often docs will say it preexisted BUT if you get the right evidence then an "aggravation" may be covered. Keep in mind the doc or type of doc telling you that? Who is paying for that opinion etc.?
I guess the question to me is are you an employee of Olive Garden? If so, you need a workers' comp lawyer.
If you were eating there, the way your question is written is that you spilled the substance on the floor and then slipped in it? If that is the case then it would be difficult to recover as you made the hazard and then fell in it. Are there other details you wish to share?
My experience is that Some adjusters with Geico can be difficult to deal with. If you've already given them the medical records (especially if soft tissue injury)then the adjuster likely won't give you additional money. As I see this you have a higher impact collision, medical bills and possible wage loss. It may be time to file suit. You have three years from date of accident to do so unless the other driver or vehicle was sa state/town/municipality owned vehicle in which case you only have 2...
You would apply for Social Security Disability based upon the accident and being unable to work 18 months. Medicare comes with that. Medicaid is based on income and I think you can apply any time.
