    It is difficult to provide any guidance without more information. What type of conduct did you expose? To whom? How were you retaliated against? Do you have an employment contract? One thing I can answer is that this will not fall within workers' compensation, which only covers employees for physical and mentally-related injuries from an accident on the job.

    For a negligence claim to actionable, several elements have to be present: 1) A duty owed to another; 2) a breach or violation of that duty constituting negligent conduct; and 3) damages proximately caused by the breach of duty or negligence. Since you did not state that your daughter was injured by the trip and fall, I assume she was not. The old saying, "no harm, no foul," applies here. If you daughter was not injured, you have no case and the cable company owes you nothing. Yes, the cable...

    Not much I can add to attorney Daniel Huey's answer, but a few issues in your case I would want to know about: 1) what were the reasons or circumstances of being rolled over? 2) Were there other injuries to be concerned about requiring the actions by EMS? 3) Did you have any pre-existing problems with your neck? An evaluation of a case can only be useful after a thorough client interview.

    Medical Malpractice claims are very difficult and only a small percentage of attorneys have the necessary training and experience for handling such cases and giving competent advice. Because of the tremendous expenses in litigating medical malpractice cases, and the high percentage of defense verdicts, the damages caused by the mistake of a medical provider must be very high and the evidence proving malpractice must be clear and convincing. First, make sure the attorney you consult has...

    Make sure your attorney has experience handling personal injury cases. Do not settle the case until you have finished medical treatment and your doctor is able to give a report as to your prognosis, whether you have any permanent impairment and physical restrictions, and whether you will need ongoing or future medical treatment. If your attorney has not explained this to you, then you need to find another one. Your medical condition sounds like it could be serious and you should be in no...

    She needs to retain a Workers' Compensation lawyer to file a claim for her work-related injuries. There are time limits for filing a claim, so she should see a lawyer without delay. Also, most states have statutes that allow law suits for double or treble damages if an employee is fired for having or filing a claim for worker's compensation. She cannot file for unemployment benefits if she obtains workers' compensation benefits. Your mother-in-law's exclusive remedy will be for workers'...

    I practice in SC, but this appears to be a simple case a property damage caused by the Jean Doe vehicle which will obligate her insurance company to pay for the damage to Ray's BMW. The fact that Ray's insurance was not in effect at the time is not relevant to Ms. Doe's insurance company's obligation to pay for Ray's damage. Good luck Dan Denton, Esq.
