    Insurance companies love to deny these type claims, but you should definitely proceed with making a claim. If your car is of significant value, you may be able to find an attorney to represent you on a contingency fee contract or you could simply present the case yourself in general sessions court. If you are injured, you should seek appropriate medical treatment and consult with an attorney in your city as soon as possible.

    You need a lawyer experienced in dealing with semi truck cases. Tractor trailers and other large commercial vehicles have specialized safety and driving regulations that a trained trucking crash lawyer can identify and use to maximize your award. You also need a lawyer who is experienced in the courtroom. Many lawyers claim to be tough advocates but have a reputation within the industry for settling cases, which means the trucking company's lawyers will give low offers knowing the attorney...

    In order to win a premises liability case, the injured party must prove, during the liability portion of their case each of the following: (1) the party responsible for the party (in this instance, Wal-Mart) either knew, or should have known that a danger existed; (2) the party responsible for the property failed to adequately warn about or remedy the dangerous condition; and (3) the dangerous condition caused the injury. Along the way to proving these things, the injured party must avoid a...

    It's certainly possible if the investigating officer was aware of his status, although if your boyfriend wasn't charged with an offense it is less certain. I strongly recommend he seek advice from an immigration specialist in your jurisdiction.

    You need to consult and hire a new attorney as soon as possible. There are undoubtedly deadlines which must be met and other matters to attend to if your case is to be saved. If you were injured and the facts are as you've stated, you have a viable case even though your former attorney may have dropped the ball. I strongly recommend you hire an attorney experienced in litigation against the State of Tennessee through the Claims Commission and who has particular experience in auto collisions....

    In Tennessee there is a one year statute of limitations in a wrongful death case which begins to run at the moment of death. In your situation, that would be the moment a court declares the individual to be legally dead. In order to prevail in a wrongful death, or any negligence action, the suing party must prove that the defendant is responsible for the injury or death. I see potential issues with the burden of proof regarding potential liability if the cause of death cannot be definitively...

    It is a common myth that an injured person must go immediately to the emergency room in order to recover in an injury claim arising out of an auto collision. In fact, most soft tissue injuries are not immediately obvious at the time of the incident. A knowledgeable attorney can assist you in navigating the various issues involved, including accessing medical care via med-pay insurance provisions or other means. I strongly recommend you consult with a Middle Tennessee injury lawyer to...

    In this scenario you have two different claims that need attention. Since you were driving a company vehicle, you likely have a claim for workers' compensation benefits as well as an auto negligence claim. Be very careful in choosing your medical care. On one hand, the workers' compensation carrier will pay for your medical treatment related to the injury; on the other, doctors chosen by workers' compensation carriers are often notorious "company doctors" who tend to conservatively evaluate...

    In Tennessee, the survivors of a loved one have just one year from the date of death to file a lawsuit for wrongful death. Since every case should be reasonably investigated prior to the filing of a legal papers, you should probably schedule an appointment with a qualified wrongful death attorney as soon as possible to discuss the case. Regarding the loss of license for the responsible driver, there are factors the Department of Safety considers other than the fact that a death occurred in a...

    You should absolutely consult with a lawyer. Whether you have a viable sexual harassment or retaliation claim I cannot say based upon the information provided, but you should call a lawyer who handles employment issues regarding the wording of any and all exit documents you sign.
