    I am so sorry to hear that your wife was injured in a collision with an uninsured driver. It sounds like her injuries were quite serious given the amount of your medical bills, so you should definitely contact a personal injury attorney who can help uncover all possible appropriate sources of recovery. Your automobile insurance should include uninsured or underinsured coverage for just this type of situation. You or others involved may also have other forms of insurance which may provide...

  2. Why should I hire a lawyer in a WC case if I can't get pain and suffering?

    You should consult with a WC attorney immediately because your injuries are severe, presumably resulted in significant lost wages and significant medical expenses, and you could very well continue to experience medical expenses and lost wages into the distant future. While you are correct that you cannot recover for pain and suffering, your entitlement to medical expenses, past, present and future, and indemnity (or lost wages) past, present and future could be very significant. If you are...

    I am so sorry to hear about your car accident and about the injuries you and your daughter suffered. You should definitely get an attorney experienced in automobile collision cases to help you with your claim, and you should not talk with the insurance company on your own. There are laws governing the process that an attorney will know that you are less likely to be aware of, and the insurance companies have an incentive to minimize the value of your claim. An attorney experienced in these...

    I am very sorry to hear about your fall and injuries. I agree with what others have already stated, namely, that you need to contact an attorney and that it is highly likely that you have a good case, especially given that the adjuster has already offered you over three times your stated medical expenses. You can be confident, however, that adjusters are trained to do everything they can to minimize the value of your case. That is a big part of their job. Please do not talk with the...

    I agree with the others who have encouraged you to seek the treatment you need irrespective of any auto collision related claims. Whether the treatment will be compensated will come down to whether you can explain the gap in treatment, relate your symptoms to the accident, and make your case. An attorney can help you do that. I would recommend that you consult an attorney experienced in automobile collision cases as soon as possible. I would also recommend that you see a licensed medical...

    I think it's unanimous, and I agree! If your doctor is recommending an MRI, you should definitely get one. Otherwise, you won't know, or be able to document, the full extent of your injuries. Before you settle, you should do everything you can to determine that. Once you settle, you cannot go back for additional money to pay for treatments related to the accident. If you are not currently represented by an attorney and you would like to discuss the specifics of your case, please feel free...

    I agree with all the others who have stated that if your lawyer is unresponsive, especially if you have never even spoken with him, you should find a new lawyer. Sometimes there are misunderstandings between lawyers and clients, but there is no excuse I can think of for no communication at all. It is critical that you trust your lawyer and that your interests are protected. If you decide to hire a new lawyer, you should know you are entitled to your file and your current lawyer must release...

    You should definitely consult with an attorney regarding the personal injury aspects of your case. It is too soon to know the extent of your injuries, especially if the accident just happened on Monday. You may have aggravated preexisting injuries and/or sustained new ones. Often times, symptoms worsen in the days and weeks following a car accident and more serious injuries are revealed later. Hopefully, that will not be the case and you will cover quickly and completely, but you really can'...

    It is always frightening when a child sustains any kind of brain injury and the science in this area is developing rapidly. You should definitely contact a Georgia personal injury attorney familiar with handling brain injury cases immediately, and, more importantly, you should be sure your pediatrician is aware of the injury and can help guide you to determine when and whether a neurological consult is appropriate. Be sure to document any symptoms your child had right after hitting his head...

    While I do not know all of the facts of your case from your post, and I hate to second guess your attorney, it sounds to me like your case may be stronger than your attorney thinks. I would recommend getting the MRI. It really is not too late. The fact that you have consistently sought treatment from your chiropractor for back problems since the accident will support that you are telling the truth about your injuries. You will need the MRI, however, to document them. If you find that you...
