I was driving a truck, went through drive thru at fast food restaurant. No height limit sign, ran into awning protruding from building. Bent awning, can I not file insurance claim and pay for repairs myself?
Generally speaking, most disputes can be worked out between the parties involved. You should consult with an Oklahoma attorney to make sure that whatever action you take is appropriate for the jurisdiction. You should act quickly because there is a duty to cooperate and report to insurance carriers. If you ultimately decide to go through your insurance carrier, there may be an issue of coverage if there is a delay in the reporting of the claim. Good luck in your efforts to resolve this matter.See question

The case would most likely be filed in the State where the injury took place to the extent there is a case or cause of action to pursue. You should contact other attorneys. If the case has merit and promise, a good attorney will either take the case or find you an attorney willing to pursue the case. Good luck.See question

You should certainly consult with a worker's compensation attorney but be careful. There may be issues in pursuing a claim and keeping your job. While there should not be retaliation against you for enforcing your rigthts, some employers then find other excuses to dismiss you from your job. Ask an attorney about all of these issues and any questions you have. Most worker's compensation attorneys provide a free consultation. Good luck.See question

Typically, a business is not liable for personal injuries unless there is some fault and notice regarding the incident itself. A business is not automatically liable just because an injury took place at the business. You should contact a local personal injury attorney to discuss the particular issues and see if a legal case is supported by the facts.See question

I agree with the other attorneys who posted answers and advice. Medical malpractice cases are quite risky, expensive, and time consuming. Damages must be signifiicant and permanent from a practical standpoint to justify the time, expense, and risks associated with these cases. Furthermore, it is quite difficult for an individual to pursue a case or cause of action without an attorney. Congratulations on the birth of your child.See question
On my head . and a fractured ankle. What kind of compensation am I going to get?
You raised an important question that would require more details, time, and attention to answer. The value of a personal injury case will depend on the following factors: medical bills, length of treatment, type of treatment, type of medical providers, diagnostic studies, lost wages, permanency of injuries, and amount of insurance. As such, it will take more time and details to properly evaluate the case. Contact a local personal injury attorney for guidance, direction, and, yes, repreresentation.See question

There are two ways to evaluate a case: 1. Legal Cause of Action and 2. Practical Course of Action. Legally, a case can be established if a person or company fails to compensate a person in full for damages related to an automobile accident. The amount in controversy represents the amount that is disputed or the amount that is being sought. If the dispute is in the range of $500 - $1,500, it may be challenging to find an attorney to pursue the matter. You may have a cause of action but may find it difficult from a practical standpoint to find an attorney willing to handle the matter under a fee arrangement that makes economic sense for all involved. You should call around to local attorneys to discuss the issues. Good luck.See question
