    Given the fact that you were injured 6 months ago and presumably just finished treating, it is worth your time to talk to a qualified North Carolina personal injury attorney to ascertain your right to receive all damages to which you are entitled.

    It really depends on how the injury is impacting your life, permanency, limitations, medical treatment, time off of work and whether there is any liability issue. Plus, it would be helpful to know the policy limits as well. For example, if you are a runner and can no longer run than that injury may be worth a lot more money than to someone that is not an active runner.

    Many times language in a settlement release is written in such way that it is clear that there is not an admission of liability or the underlying facts giving rise to the claim. Talk to your lawyer for specifics. Otherwise, sorry for your loss.

    As other highly respected attorneys have advised, please seek qualified legal counsel with specific knowledge of trucking law and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. I would also suggest that you visit the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration website and specifically, the SAFER system that offers a "Company Snapshot" that provides information on out of service violations, insurance coverage, safety ratings. The general link is as follows ... if you cut and paste into your...

    YEs. By definition, you sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI) and continue to have symptoms related to the brain trauma. Any loss of consciousness is serious, but 15 minutes is quite a long period of time and requires additional treatment, evaluation, testing and probably neuropsychological testimony. If you have ever had a concussion before the incident, that may compound your recovery and damages. I am Chair of the Brain Injury Association of America based in Washington and serve on...

    If your sister was injured, definitely get a personal injury attorney. There are a lot of good Arizona attorneys to select from. If the issue is the police report and or an increase in insurance premiums, probably also worth investing in an attorney.

    No. In fact, in Indiana (IC 34-51-3-1) our General Assembly limited a punitive damage award to NO MORE than 3 times compensatory damages or $50,000.00 ... which ever is higher. Then at that point, the person receiving the punitive damage award is only entitled to collect 25% of the award and then 75% reverts to the Indiana Violent Victim Crime fund. In essence, pursuing punitive damages through a verdict is very rare. Definitely need to get an attorney and pursue the action. Looks like you...

    Definitely talk to an Indiana attorney that handles premises cases. I suspect that the owner's insurance company will call you very shortly to take a recorded statement. Make sure that you hire an attorney before you speak with anyone else about the incident. Also, try to have photos taken of the area that was defective and caused you to fall. It will be important to show the exact defect and what the owner should have done, but did not, to prevent the fall.

    This may be a medical malpractice case if the rehab facility is in fact a qualified health care professional pursuant to the Indiana Medical Malpractice Act. If the case falls under the med mal act, most cases are found in favor of the doctor or other qualified health care provider and against the patient. The med mal act is quite onerous and frankly, set up by doctors to protect doctors from liability. Ultimately, the problem is causation between the stroke and the physical activity. I...
