    Commercial trucking cases can be different than other car accident cases. You want an attorney who is familiar with and has experience with trucking accidents. Although there are some similarities, each accident and each case is different. Your lawyer should explain how he or she plans to pursue the case and be willing to answer all of your questions. If your lawyer is not willing to answer your questions, then you may want to find another lawyer. I wish you the best of luck.

    I am so sorry to hear about your daughter’s injury. In most situations, a private company that has prepared an incident report is not required to share it with you. However, an attorney may be able to obtain a copy of the report for you. You should consult with an experienced personal injury attorney. An initial consultation is free and an attorney will be able to tell you what steps to take next. Whenever your child is injured as a result of another person’s negligence (carelessness), you...

    I am sorry to hear that you were hurt in an accident. Whenever you are injured as a result of another person’s negligence (carelessness), you may be entitled to compensation for (1) medical bills, (2) lost wages, (3) pain and suffering, (4) any permanent injury or disfigurement, and (5) inconvenience and loss of enjoyment of life. However, from the limited information you have given me, it is impossible for me to determine whether the accident was your fault, or the fault of one of the other...

    I am so sorry to hear about your accident. You potentially have claims for both any injuries you suffer, as well as damage to your car. Whenever you are in a car accident, the first and most important consideration is getting whatever medical attention you need. If you have a doctor or other health provider that you see regularly, you should definitely make an appointment as soon as possible. If you do not have health insurance or the means to pay for medical care, a personal injury attorney...

    Unfortunately, many people are injured in Walmart stores under similar circumstances. Whenever you are injured as a result of another person’s negligence (carelessness), you may be entitled to compensation for (1) medical bills, (2) lost wages if you are unable to work, (3) pain and suffering, (4) any permanent injury or disfigurement, and (5) inconvenience and loss of enjoyment of life. Many factors (including the extent of the store’s negligence and the severity of injuries) determine whether...

    I am so sorry to hear that you were injured. I have handled other cases where clients have had to have spinal fusions and I know that it is a difficult and unpleasant surgery and recovery. Recreational waivers, like the one you signed before boarding the boat, are not always enforced in court. Whether and how the waiver affects your claim depends on a lot of factors, including the exact language of the waiver and the boat driver’s behavior (whether or not the driver acted negligently or...

    I am very sorry to hear about your fall. Your injuries sound very painful. Since the complex has admitted liability and you've already received an offer, there is no question that you have a good case. As you are specifically asking about the value of the case, there is simply no easy way to answer that. I would be cautious if an attorney quotes you a figure for settlement as there is no way to know for sure. Due to the fact that insurance companies always offer far less to individuals...

    I am so sorry to hear about your mother’s accident. Your mother needs to contact a local personal injury attorney who has experience handling car accident cases. An initial consultation is free, and an attorney will be able to tell her what steps to take next. Unfortunately, the insurance company’s only interest is settling the case for the lowest amount of money possible. They are looking our for their interests and you and your mother need someone to look out for her and your family’s...
