I agree that consulting with a personal injury attorney is an important first step. Most accident attorneys will give you a free consultation. In collisions involving fatalities, there is typically a pretty thorough accident investigation conducted by the local authorities. The information gathered during this investigation can be very helpful in proving which driver was at fault. I hope your dad has a complete recovery.See question

In a catastrophic injury case such as this, one of the first things the lawyer considers is whether liability or fault can be convincingly proven. The first step is an investigation into the facts which are available short of filling a law suit. If these preliminary facts show that fault can possibly be proven, then the lawyer will typically advise the client of what it will take to prove all aspects of the case and what that will cost. In a case like this, the attorney should be up front with the client about costs, which could easily exceed $100,000.
Look for an attorney who has been successful handling cases of this magnitude who is also willing to dedicate his time and resources to the case and hire that attorney as soon as possible.

It is a common misconception that because you are injured while on the property of another that that property owner is automatically responsible. This is not the case. Only if the land owner is shown to have been negligent (which can be done in many different ways) will liability for damages follow. I would need more information about the circumstances of your fall to weight on on BOA's fault.See question

You need to talk to a local personal injury lawyer. Don't try to figure this out on your own. My firm and other firms on AVVO routinely provide free initial consultations in cases like yours. Even if there are only small insurance limits there are ways to maximize these limited resources.See question
