    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.

    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...

    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...

    Sorry for your tragic and preventable loss. Talk with a qualified attorney immediately. Obviously, the drunk driver is the target defendant. However, there may be a "dram shop" case wherein you may be able to hold the furnisher of the alcohol liable for your daughter's death. Many times it is necessary to prove that the furnisher of the alcohol knew, by visual identification, that the drunk driver was intoxicated when the alcohol was sold, given away or otherwise furnished to the driver....

    Most States differ on various aspects of tort law. However, I would be very careful before you settle the case to be certain that there are not any excess policies that may be available, such as umbrella insurance, underinsured motorist coverage, additional third party liability, etc. Further, California may have a subrogration diminishment Statute that provides a statutory (or common law) reduction for those situations where a person's injury may be worth (for example) 1 Million dollars, but...

    Most states differ on claims involving wrongful death and distribution. In Indiana, both parents have a claim for the wrongful death of a child. While there is no cap on damages, the love and affection of the child is the greatest compenent of the claim and is payable until the death of the last surviving parent. Both parents are required to make the claim. Typically, the parents could be co-plaintiff's, but sometimes a non-custodial parent is a defendant in the action. The defendant...
