    Rear ended by tractor trl while stopped making a left turn on a straight away so driver of tractor trl clearly not paying attention no serious life threatening injuries but injuries to back and neck

    Michael’s Answer

    Yes. Possibly a very good case because truck drivers frequently drove fatigued - in excess of hourly maximums.

    We have worked on and won trucking cases where initially our client received the citation. It really depends on how thoroughly the initial investigation was done and what can be discovered during a thorough investigation. Without knowing more, we can't comment on whether more could be learned.

    I was hit by a big truck that ran the red light causing me to sustain an head injury which resulted in staples.

    Michael’s Answer

    I think the feedback will be unanimous. You should be talking to your lawyer about your concerns. You can't get a better answer online. Only a lawyer representing you will have access to the facts so he or she can answer this question.

    Michael’s Answer

    It is possible that the ticket was improperly issued to you. We've won recoveries for our clients even after they have received citations.

    It is also possible that there are other factors causing the wreck - like road design or landscaping or construction that blocks drivers' view of the road. However, it is impossible to ascertain this from your brief review. You need to contact a personal injury lawyer. A good personal injury lawyer will want to see the police report and the scene of the wreck to ask you questions.

    Good luck.

    medical bills is almost 180,000 what should i do Mr Rambo 678=886=4839

    Michael’s Answer

    Hopefully you and your wife purchased UM (uninsured / underinsured motorist coverage). You also want to obtain the police report and review it to an experienced personal injury lawyer. They may be able to see other responsible parties. There may be a road design or construction defect.

  • Incarecerated female was sexually assaulted while incarcerated in county jail

    The officer was arrested and admitted guilt. Does the female have any litigation stand?

    Michael’s Answer

    Everything is fact specific. However, prisoners should absolutely not be raped by guards. Depending on the facts, there may be a significant claim.

    Our law firm has represented victims of rape in civil cases. In 2011, we obtained a $9 million dollar verdict against a home security company. You can read more on our website - WWW.MLNLAW.COM.
