If you have retained personal injury counsel, you should discuss the pros/cons of this offer with them. If you haven't tried to retain counsel, I would suggest you find an attorney to sit down and go through your options. You should not resolve the case without consulting an attorney, especially if you think you have future pain and treatment coming. Only an attorney versed in the accident and your care can give you that type of advice. This is a serious matter and you should consult with...
No shock here unfortunately. Delay, deny, defend - that's a book title about insurance companies because that's what many insurance companies do. You will probably need to consult with a lawyer in order to get anywhere. Don't wait to talk to one until the insurance company finishes its "investigation".
I agree generally with those comments that your friend/small business owner should not affiliate himself with those comments. Moreover, he should be very careful and refrain from the dissemination of those allegations at his gym to prospective or current students. Defamation claims often lose their luster if there is nothing to collect from the person making defamatory comments. If the comments begin to come from a competitor and former partner/friend, that could be a proverbial straw...
The best thing to do is contact a Wisconsin personal injury lawyer. You have serious injuries from what you are describing and talking to a Wisconsin lawyer will likely help put your mind at ease. They can help explain financial implications to you as well. You really should consider talking to and retaining an attorney to assist you on this. Give someone a call that is what they are there for.
I concur with Atty. Witt as to the need for the immediate reporting of the incident to the store. It increases the credibility of the account (in my view) and often enhances evidence recovery as many stores have policies in place for premises injuries. Contact another local Wisconsin lawyer to discuss your case. Good luck.
I am sorry to hear about your accident. Assuming your mother and brother weren't driving and the drivers were at fault have auto insurance they may be able to make a claim against the drivers' insurance directly to help deal with their bills. At the same time they are making the claim the hospital lien could be dealt with. I would suggest contacting another local Milwaukee personal injury lawyer to get started on the process for your mother and brother. He or she may have some immigration...
There are a number of things that could be done to prevent this doctor from acting in this manner again. This can range from contacting the police, the medical licensing board, or filing a civil complaint. There are hurdles with each option. You should contact a lawyer at once to discuss your options and weigh which is the most appropriate course of action.
It depends. When did you get the conviction for hitting the fence and what type of case was the underlying conviction? Some judges will say "not even traffic ticket" to impress upon the severity of the situation. But if you present your case and be prepared to address away this civil citation as being a non drinking and driving type offense you have a shot. Most often the courts are referring to criminal convictions and probably OWI type citations. You should talk to a lawyer experienced...
Underage drinking is generally a municipal citation. If it was in a municipal court then that is probably what he got - a non-criminal ticket. In terms of job applications it depends on the question asked but he probably doesn't have a criminal conviction to report.
I would suggest contacting another local Wisconsin attorney to discuss the specifics of your son's case.
Depends. Note if its a private or charter school these immunities probably won't apply. The claim viability is going to be largely fact dependent. Your best bet is to contact an attorney to discuss.
