    I agree with the previous comment. it is both a closed head injury and a laceration. Any time there is a significant head injury, there is generally different levels of concussive damage to the brain.

Post concussive syndrome passes through several levels of improving function which can take...

    If a jury award is greater than the amount of insurance coverage, you are still entitled to the amount of the award. whether you would be able to collect or not would be the issue. If the plaintiff has underinsured motorist coverage, after the primary policy paid out, the UM policy would kick in and pay per the terms of its coverage. This could either be in addition to the primary poly or reduced by the primary policy. For instance, if the UM coverage was an add-on policy of 50K, then the...

    This type I'd situation requires not just an attorney capable of handling criminal issues, but one very well versed in immigration issues as well. I highly suggest you consult with an attorney who specializes in both areas sooner rather than later. Best of luck, Lisa

    You should speak with a criminal defense attorney as the citation you received have criminal liability attached to it. if you are injured, you should seek medical attention as well and potentially speak to a personal injury attorney in the event you can show the accident was the fault of the other driver.

    Theoretically, yes. If your attorney had time to investigate, gather exculpatory evidence, etc. and presented that to the prosecutor at arraignment, it might be possible.

    Both of the attorneys above have given you sound advice. When you speak with an investigator it is because they are searching for additional evidence to make their case...in this case it's to make out their case against you. Counsel can assist you in mitigating this situation far better than you trying to go it alone. Please seek the advice of a local attorney. Best of luck.

All of these are questions which must be answered to determine if there has been any long-term harm from the blow to his head. As other attorneys have said, the most important thing is your son's health....

    In order to proceed against the tenant she must be served. A special process server may be helpful in your situation. Beyond that, if her present whereabouts are unknown, you may be able to get permission from the court to have her served by publication. Once served, you will be able to ask the court for a judgement against her. Even if you obtain a judgment against her, you may not be able to collect it if she has listed you as a creditor in her BK and the debt is discharged in bankruptcy. In...

    It is my understanding that recent changes to European law regarding your "right to be forgotten" allow you to right to redact results on searches of your name . According to news reports, this right went into effect immediately upon the passage of the law and applies to all search engines. it may not affect the actual blog post, but it can affect someone's ability to find the blog post if they use a search engine to try to find it or search for general info about you.
