    Typically, the biggest issue in a slip and fall case is whether or not the store had notice of the hazardous condition. It's unclear from your post as to what you slipped in and whether or not the store had notice of same. Slip and fall cases are often more difficult to win than other types of personal injury matters. Being injured is not enough to determine if you have a case. You need to consult with an attorney.

    Be very careful accepting an offer prior to knowing the long term effects of the injury to your back. Once you receive settlement funds and resolve your case, you will not get another dime from them leaving you responsible for the future medical costs. The insurance company is not looking out for your best interest. They are looking out for themselves. Insurance companies often try to settle cases for pennies on the dollar with people who are not familiar with valuing their own cases.

    You definitely need to speak to an attorney as soon as possible. If you were injured, you definitely need to hire an attorney. There are many questions, you need to ask the attorney such as how do I make sure this drunk driver is criminally prosecuted, how do I make sure that I am reasonably compensated for my injuries, and how do I get a fair amount for the damage to my vehicle. Be very wary of speaking to the drunk driver's insurance company, they will not be looking out for your interests....

    You need to hire an attorney. There are many issues which will be difficult for you to deal with such as valuing the case and addressing insurance subrogation. As to costs such as documentation, typically attorneys front the costs and do not seek costs if the case is not successful.

    Yes, you need to hire an attorney. It is not clear whether or not you were injured in the wreck or when the wreck occurred. In Tennessee you have one year from the date of the wreck to file suit. How much time you have left depends on when your wreck occurred. It will be very difficult for you to evaluate the proper value of your case without an attorney and deal with the many issues that go with that type of claim. Always remember the insurance company is trying to settle for as little...

    Be very careful trying to handle your own case. You will be at a great disadvantage trying to handle your own case. There are many, many things you should not discuss with an adverse insurance company. They will seek to take advantage of you in negotiations and work to pay you the smallest amount of money they can. You will need to address subrogation and Med Pay. You need to make sure that you don't have future issues with your medical care prior to even considering resolving a case. You also...

    You can make a claim against the driver for property damage and for a personal injury claim. Proving the other driver is at fault is what will lead to getting your car fixed and medical expenses paid. You do need to hire an attorney to help with the case. Insurance companies tend to take advantage of people who are representing themselves. Let me know if you have any other questions. -Matt Hardin

    Your insurance company will likely hire an attorney to defend you if he sues you. Your insurance should pay for repairs to your vehicle.. If you or your daughter have personal injuries, you need to hire an attorney to represent you and pursue court action against him. Effectively, if you are injured by an uninsured party and your insurance comes into play in the form of uninsured motorist coverage, your own insurance company will defend the other driver in court. Assuming you have uninsured...
