    I agree that you should hire a lawyer. Also, I'm not clear on why you need to go to a hospital for care. I'd probably see a general practitioner first to have x-rays done and see whether there is anything wrong. That's probably much less expensive than going to the hospital right off the bat. Just some humble advice. Best of luck to you and hope you feel better soon and get the help you need.

    I agree with the others who have posted advice here, especially those who've recommended that you try to find another attorney immediately - I cannot stress that enough. If you wait too long, your claim may be barred forever. You may ultimately need to hire two attorneys - one who specializes in workers' comp and another who specializes in personal injury/ car wreck cases. It's difficult to discern from your description who ultimately caused this wreck (trainer or other driver). If you were...

    I agree with most of the other responses. You need an experienced trucking attorney in California if that is where the collision occurred. Meet with the attorney face to face and bring a list of questions with you. Ask about the prospective attorney's experience in trucking specific litigation. I do not agree that the police report is going to tell you whether or not you have a case. Trucking cases are not the same as regular car wreck cases. Best of luck to you. I hope you were not...

    I'm sorry that you're having to seek this advice. This must be a very hard time for you. I know that hiring an attorney is probably the last thing you want to think about right now, especially if you or a family member was injured, or worse, killed, in a truck wreck. That said, you're wise in seeking out an attorney now. The problem in these cases is that the evidence starts disappearing almost immediately after the wreck - especially when a large trucking company is involved. You will...

    I agree with what everyone is saying. You should feel comfortable discussing this with your lawyer. One helpful tip for you: before you speak with your lawyer, take the time to write out all of the questions you have for him or her. That way you know all of your concerns will be addressed. Just to add to what was said below, remember that it is generally unwise to settle or try a case before the plaintiff is done treating. This is because you just never know what the future holds - you...
