    If you are negotiating with the insurance company without an attorney, I suggest you contact one right away. You only get once chance at this and the insurance company does NOT have your best interest in mind. If you have over $20,000 in medical expenses and will need to continue treating, then you don't know the extent of your injuries yet. Once you take a settlement, then that's it. If there are problems or more medical expenses that come up later in your treatment, you won't be able to...

    I'm sorry for your injury. It sounds very serious. As far as dealing with the insurance adjuster, you should contact an attorney to help you right away. The insurance company does not have your best interest in mind. Make sure you are protected and have an expert to help you through the process and represent your interests with the insurance company. You only get one opportunity to make sure you get the treatment and compensation you deserve, and it's difficult to navigate on your own. An...

    You haven't mentioned if you've retained an attorney for your personal injury case. If you haven't, you should right away. You only get one opportunity to negotiate a settlement or make a claim against the insurance company. They do not have your best interest in mind. You should contact local personal injury attorney right away. To answer your question, it's not unheard of, but again, your attorney would be able to move the claim forward if the insurance company went dark this. There'...

    I'm sorry to hear about your injury. You should discuss this with a local personal injury attorney immediately. You attorney will be able to walk you through the process and negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf to make sure you get the treatment you need. This way, you will also be able to know that your best interests are being served, as opposed to the insurance company's. I suggest you find an attorney to represent you on this claim.

    You should contact a personal injury attorney right away. You haven't included all the pertinent facts here and much of this will depend on the coverage that the apartment complex has, but this sounds like a pretty typical slip and fall case. The insurance adjuster does not have your best interest in mind and the insurance company isn't going to volunteer to pay for your injuries. The important thing is that you get the treatment you need to recover and get back to normal. It sounds...

    As the others have said, you should contact an experienced personal injury attorney right away. Dealing with uninsured motorist coverage and an insurance company is a complicated process and your insurance company - while it may not be intentional on its part - does not have your best interest in mind.

    I'm so sorry you had to endure that. It is absolutely unacceptable. You should talk to an employment attorney right away. According to what you've written here, you have a very strong claim against your company for sexual harassment. There are strict rules and deadlines for filing complaints of this nature, so you need to act right away. Contact an attorney and move forward on this claim. No one should have to endure a work environment like the one you described and you should most...

    From the facts you've presented here, it certainly sounds like a settlement is a possibility. However, these are the types of things you should be discussing with your current attorney.

    You should have your cousin's family contact a personal injury/wrongful death attorney immediately. The insurance company does NOT have your best interest in mind and will take advantage of you not having an advocate there to represent you. Contact an attorney that handles wrongful death suits right away. Best, Joe Larson
