    The simple fact is that there is nothing a WC attorney can do unless you have restrictions linked to a specific diagnosis which a reputable orthopedic surgeon can relate to repetitive stress trauma. No disability attorney can help you unless one or more doctors say that there is NO work you can do for at least one year.

    If it is really the case that "nobody will take your case," don't you think there must be a reason? We are in business to make money. We do NOT turn down viable cases. I surmise this is a medical malpractice suit. Perhaps you had a very bad outcome but there was no negligence. We see this VERY frequently. You MUST have a far better appreciation of what is happening and why IN ADDITION to retaining an attorney or you are throwing your money away. If you need to re-group, do as my...

    I agree with my colleagues. I would only add that her history of terrible driving has nothing to do with it. Think of fault as a light switch without a dimmer. It's either on or off. The girl is at fault. Your son wouldn't get a dime more if she admitted to being drunk, smoking marijuana, and trying to shoot-up, while on her cell phone. Once you establish fault, you must quantify your injuries. Having an attorney makes this far easier.

    He ABSOLUTELY has a Workers' Compensation claim. It is possible that there is a 3-party claim, also, but many more details are needed to make that determination. He REALLY needs to consult an experienced Workers' Compensation attorney ASAP. We all provide free, no obligation consults.

    It is not true. Strategically, you do not want to make it seem as though your client is desperate to settle because that perception WILL lower the value of the case.

    Negligence has nothing to do with it. You have a Workers' Compensation claim that has been denied. You need to identify an experienced WC attorney to determine whether you have a valid claim. If you do, your attorney will need to file a Motion for Immediate Hearing. He can also alert your doctors that you had a work injury because it is illegal for a medical provider to try to collect an invoice FROM YOU during the pendency of your claim. Please don't wait.

    The suit would only be valid if you could demonstrate that the homeowner was negligent. This is a fact-specific analysis which requires the smallest of details. You need to sit down, face-to-face with a personal injury attorney.
