    You have 1-year from the date of the accident. It is strongly recommended that you speak with an attorney regarding your injuries and whether you missed time from work.

    This is an employment question and not a personal injury one. I would re-ask under the category of employment. As far as I know, since you are on salary, I do not think the employer can withhold any of your income. The company could make you use vacation days but should be allowed to withhold your salary.

    In a nutshell, you are not entitled to anything. Uninsured/Underinsured motorist insurance coverage is put in place for people when they get hit by a driver with no insurance. While it is unfortunate that you have no insurance coverage because of your husband being out of work, this exact situation is the risk you run by driving on the road without any insurance. You could file a lawsuit on behalf of yourself against the other driver, but even getting a judgment against him may be worthless...

    It should not impact your lawsuit unless his policy limits are less than what is owed to make you whole. In that case, you would normally go after the person individually. In this case you would not since he has filed bankruptcy and presumably included this potential debt within it. Do you have an attorney?

    After obtaining medical treatment in order to get healthy, You need to contact the Wal-Mart store about getting a copy of the Incident Report as well as contact a good premises liability attorney. I would not recommend dealing with Wal-Mart's insurance adjusters as they will not as truthful with you as they would with an attorney.

    I think you may be confused about uninsured motorist coverage. The person who hit you and is fault has no insurance; therefore, he has no uninsured motorist coverage as well. Your car insurance policy may have an uninsured provision which covers you in this very situation. If you do have that provision, your insurance would pay for the car (which in this case they are willing to do). Since your regular policy and uninsured policy are with the same ins. co., I am having trouble understanding...

    Car insurance covers the vehicle involved in the accident and not the driver. Therefore, since your vehicle was not involved in the car accident, your insurance would not cover the damage caused by the wreck you had while driving your friend's car. Since your friend's car was involved in the wreck, her car insurance would be responsible. Your friend's insurance can pay for the damage or you can pay the $850.

    First and foremost, you need to notify your employer of your injury. Workers' compensation claims can be denied because the injured employee did not give timely notice (30 days after the incident) of the injury to his/her employer. However, it sounds as if your employer is aware. Your employer should have then provided you with a panel of at least three physicians for you to choose. If none of the actions have occurred, I would strongly advise to contact a workers' compensation attorney...

    As stated previously, Temporary Total Disability (TTD) is the term given for payments that an employee receives while he is off work per the doctor's orders. Once you are cleared to work (partially or full), the doctor will release you to light-duty (partial work) or full-time. He will also give you restrictions as to what you can and cannot do. Just as you cannot demand to stay off work, your employer cannot demand you to return to work as long as your doctor tells you to stay off work. If...

    It's possible, but I would need more facts. First, how old is your daughter? If she is a minor, you could be liable. Assuming she is not, it looks from the facts that you passed title to her months leading up to the accident, and she failed to register the vehicle, pay taxes (if any), and get new tags. The transfer of title should be enough to help you avoid liability. However, since the vehicle was still titled in your name when the accident occurred, you will in all likelihood be named in...
