    Since you stated that your wife and daughter only had minor injuries then any loss of consortium claim is basically worthless. You are not entitled to ½ of ant settlement because any loss of consortium claim is a separate claim from your wife’s and daughters’ injury claims. Good luck.

    If you were granted a judgment then check with the court on the procedures for docketing the judgment. Once docketed the judgment will show up if she ever wants a loan. Good luck.

    The reason the insurance company wants to pay the bills is that they will get the medical providers to negotiate on the bills and reduce the amount they have to pay. The end result is that they pocket the difference, not you. I would contact a local personal injury attorney to discuss your options because your case is worth more than just your medical bills. Good luck.

    People can always sue. The $64,000 question is can they prevail? I agree, that if you have no assets they probably will not bother coming after you.

  6. I feel my Daughter had a unnecessary C-Section just for financial gain fore her Doctor and would like to know if she has a case?

    Barring a medical emergency, the C-section could not have been performed without your daughter’s consent. The economic potential of the damages you list do not warrant the time, effort and expense required to prosecute it and you will have a hard time finding an attorney willing to take this case on. Good luck.

    Every case is different, so there is no set tme period to settle becasue it depends on your injurues and when your treating doctor releases you from care. You have an attorney, so talk to them becasue they know the most about your case. Good luck.

    It is always a good idea to get checked out after a car crash, even though you are not currently hurting. Who knows what my happen over the next several days. Also, by going to the doctor you have now documented your crash and how you feel. Make sure to tell your doctor everything that hurts/aches, etc.. You know your body the best, so do not leave anything out. I have had many clients who just talk about what hurts them the most, while leaving out the minor aches/pains. It usually turns...

    Sure you could try but from your facts how was the homeowner in any negligent? It appears that your negligence led to your finger injury. Since it appears that you did not have worker’s comp. insurance, then your contributory negligence will be an issue and based on your facts is should well exceed 50%, which would bar any recovery. However, if your finger injury was caused by a defective leaf blower then save the leaf blower and talk with a local persona injury attorney that has experience...
