    First, be sure to seek medical treatment for your injuries. That way, your complaints are documented in your medical records. Second, if you have your own insurance company, notify them that you were involved in this accident. There is probably medical payments coverage available on the taxi you were in, and if that is not enough to cover medical bills, your own medical payments coverage will apply. Third, consult with an injury lawyer right away. She can assist you in filing a claim...

    The value of a personal injury case is very case specific. It depends upon the amount of past and future medical expenses, wage loss, and pain and suffering. The value is also highly dependent upon the jurisdiction that your case would be venued in- some counties verdicts are known to be far "cheaper" than other counties. Therefore, I am not sure how helpful a search of public records is going to be for you. A big issue in UIM cases is whether or not your health insurance carrier has "...

    The laws in every state are different. In my state (Wisconsin) even if you were at fault- you would be entitled to whatever the level of medical payments coverage on your auto policy. However, other states are PIP states which are completely different. I am unable to tell from your message which state the accident was in. Call a personal injury lawyer in the state where it happened to determine what your rights are. Most personal injury lawyers are happy to discuss it with you by...

    Your employer's insurance carrier should handle this for you. Often times the at fault driver is included in a lawsuit, however, the insurance carrier for your employer will provide you with an attorney to defend you and they will be responsible for paying any damages. You should go onto the Wisconsin Circuit Court Access website (known as ccaps) and do a search for the case. All of the attorneys should be listed there. Contact the one for UHaul's insurance company and call him or her....

    The rules on AVVO don't allow lawyers to directly solicit your business. We are hear to provide general information. I am not licensed to practice in Florida but do personal injury in Wisconsin. Your best bet would be to look for a "board certified civil trial specialist". You should then contact those lawyers and run your case by them to see if you even have a case under Florida law. If you do not have a case, you still may be entitled to payment for some of your medical expenses if there...

  6. I have been working for a guy as an independent contractor. The last check I received from him he canceled. What can I do?

    You can sue him in small claims court. There is information available online or at the Clerk of Courts office in Marathon County. You do not need to pay a lawyer to handle it, you can complete the paperwork and do it yourself. There is a filing fee that needs to be paid but this is probably your best hope of getting the money returned to you. Best of luck!

    Your insurance company has an obligation to protect you from an excess judgment. I would consult with an attorney who can put pressure on the insurance company to get the case settled without an excess judgment against you. Good luck!

    It really depends on which specific programs he is receiving benefits from. Some do not have income restrictions, while others do. Your dad likely has a caseworker through the county who should be able to tell you exactly which programs he is on and what the restrictions are. If the casework does not know, you could contact an attorney who specializes in Elder Law issues or Social Security claims. Good luck!

  9. Can a person sue me for slander or libel for putting his first name in my book I PUBLISHED and telling a part of our life

    Slander is for the spoken word so he could not sue you for that. He could try to sue you for libel but if the information that you published was true, he will have a hard time being successful unless he can establish that you had a malicious intent. To be on the safe side, you probably should consult with an attorney that advertises that they handle defamation claims. S/he should be able to give you some information to protect yourself from a potential lawsuit.

    What the insurance company is telling you with respect to the statute of limitations is correct. Tolling means extending the statute of limitations such that the statute of limitations does not run. If it runs and you have not filed a lawsuit or settled your claim, you will be barred from making a settlement. Specifically, Wis. Stats. section 893.12 states "Advance payment of damages; limitation extended. The period fixed for the limitation for the commencement of actions, if a payment...
