Lots of questions here. Parents can be sued for negligent entrustment so in theory the at fault driver can be sued, possibly the parents, etc. there may be multiple levels on insurance coverage and there may be under insured coverage. Need more details here. If the insurance is not enough then one can try to go after assets. Hopefully this answered it for you but if not, reach back out. Much will depend on how serious the injury was.
This answer is general information and not intended to create an attorney client relationship.
You can terminate an attorney client relationship at any time via telephone, email or letter. My suggestion would be to express your concerns directly to that lawyer to see if the relationship can be salvaged. We can't fix what we don't know about. If that were to fail then you can terminate as indicated above.
Under South Carolina law yes Most take it if they have to "fight" to get it or it was a denied case and then now it is accepted and you are owed back TTD. That is money secured by the lawyer that the insurance carrier had otherwise denied.
I've seen this before. Horseplay must be mutual. That is an employee push. She should get an experienced SC workers comp lawyer. Check ratings, reviews and take advantage of a free consult. Only thing you need to make sure of is that your daughter wasn't also engaged in horseplay. Let me know if you have other questions.
If you are in Clemson try Baxley or Sherrill. It may be that you don't have a lawyer is why. Doctors want to make sure it's approved and goes smoothly (and their bill gets paid) Some unrepresented folks don't know how to make sure that happens.
Because there is a workers comp statute that allows the employer/insurance carrier to send you for a medical eval. It's the law so your attorney is not "letting" them do anything a Commissioner would not order.
If the other driver was at fault then you have to go against their insurance company not yours. If the at fault driver doesn't have insurance then you go against your uninsured policy. Whether either company will just pay you $25,000 depends on nature of your injuries and MANY other factors. Insurance companies don't make a habit of simply rolling over. Best bet is to speak to a South Carolins car accident lawyer to discuss all issues.
