    The demand package is how you or your lawyer tells your story to the insurance company. Lawyers are basically story tellers. We assist you getting the medical attention you need and them tell the story of what is wrong with you and how the incident had and will hinder you, what inconveniences it caused and will cause and more. Essentially, insurance carriers try to negotiate every dollar they can, because every $100 means millions in the end to the Board of Directors. Even in soft...

    There does not have to be a barrier. There should be a reasonable amount of bright or contrasting paint and marking and lighting. You can make a claim with the store. They likely will deny.

    This is a very serious case and no one can give you an evaluation in this forum. Call or email a lawyer directly for assistance. The value of every claim is chiefly based on what injuries you have and how they heal. Given the nature of the injuries, it is a fairly serous case. Essentially, insurance carriers try to negotiate every dollar they can, because every $100 means millions in the end to the Board of Directors. Attorneys matter. They change their gameplan when a lawyer is...

    It does sound like a rough deal. Our SAO stalks avvo, so don't post here. Give a local criminal defense lawyer a call. Many like us are available over the weekend.

    Yes. They are ripping you off. Essentially, insurance carriers try to negotiate every dollar they can, because every $100 means millions in the end to the Board of Directors. On the other hand, a good lawyer can pay for his "fee" both with the increase in offer and often with the negotiation down of bills. Even in soft tissue injuries, those tissues stretch and scar, or cause corresponding pressure on nerves in the spinal cord, leaving behind permanent problems for some. I have had clients...

    This is a divorce / family law question, not medical malpractice. It needs to be recategorized to get your answer. You can also find a lawyer through avvo who will confidentially give you advice.

    Call or email a Florida lawyer when you can. You should go to the doctor to document your injuries. And injury lawyers don't charge hourly or up front. They will often take all of the risk and take a case on the contingency of recovery. All offer free consultations. Feel free to contact one through avvo as even though it is Christmas Eve, many of us are here to help you. We hope your holiday gets better.
