    You have limited damages and the costs to hire an expert witness will be thousands of dollars more than your case would ever be worth.

    Brain injury cases are hard enough for an attorney to handle, let alone someone suffering from a brain injury. You really need to find a personal injury attorney that specializes in brain injury cases to assist you. Do not try and do this alone. Good luck.

    The longer you wait the harder it gets to prove you were actually injured unless video surveillance is preserved. Go back and report it immediately, the store will review the surveillance. Good luck.

    If you agree to handle the medical bills as part of the settlement then you can negotiate for reductions. Make sure that this money is included into any settlement amount. Insurance companies negotiate on these bills all the time and pocket the difference. The only difference this time is your son gets the benefit of the reductions. Good luck.

    The consequences would be that he will be charged with theft, and his defense was that he had your permission. Tell your boyfriend what your insurance company wants you to do, and ask for repayment. If he refuses, and if you want your money back, then go ahead and file the police report. Good luck.

    If you were not injured then you do not have a worker’s comp. claim. However, as stated you are entitled to work in a safe environment so I would consider complaining to Cal OSHA. Good luck.

    Who was at fault for the crash, you or the other driver? What has the other driver’s insurance company said? If you were not at fault then the status of your driver’s license should not matter. For their defense to be valid the policy must specifically state that they “do cover individuals whose license has been suspended”. I would talk with a local personal injury attorney. Good luck.

    That’s the problem when you don’t have auto insurance. Ask for an itemization of the $16,400 and see what they are claiming. The lack of or minimal property damage does not mean that people were not injured.
