Pursue the Workers' Compensation claim with experienced counsel. Any med mal component WILL be compensated through the Workers' Compensation carrier. (e.g. additional time off work or greater deficits resulting in greater permanency) The med mal component is NOT viable on its own because there is no permanent injury which resulted from the alleged negligence.See question
If my girlfriend and I were to have sex and she got pregnant and she just turned 18 on August 7th of this year, and I turn 17 in September on the 5th, would she get in trouble in any way??
Without condoning it, I can say that your relationship breaks no law. In Indiana, the age of consent is 16.See question

If you have two, prior, unrelated Felony convictions, you can be charged as an Habitual Offender as long as the current charge is also a Felony. Take this very seriously and discuss strategy with counsel ASAP.See question
And once you pay everything in that court and been sentnced on that can he go back and lock me up on that
Traffic tickets are infractions which, by definition, are punishable by fine ONLY. If you are "locked-up," you committed a Misdemeanor or Felony offense. If you plead guilty to the offense, the judge would have no choice but to sentence you, though probation is more likely than jail time unless you have reached Habitual Traffic Offender status. That is why you should NEVER enter ANY plea without counsel.See question
I'm a 20 year old black male in central Indiana. Last night I took the blame for my friend and was given a ticket for possession of marijuana paraphernalia. I was the passenger. My court date is October 14th and I was wondering what my sentence wi...
If you were both front seat passengers, any paraphernalia in clear view was within the custody and control of the driver, also. She can still be charged. "Ownership" has no legal significance. If you were not jointly responsible for the presence of any paraphernalia, you are making a mistake to accept responsibility "I took the blame ..." This will be inconvenient and expensive or worse.See question
Basically if you don't pay a traffic or speeding ticket at Tennessee or New York or Louisiana, can they suspend your Indiana Driving License? Thank you!
If you have an Indiana license, only Indiana can suspend it. Indiana can and will suspend your license for infractions committed in other states. Hire a traffic attorney in the jurisdictions where you were ticketed.See question
Father was cited (not arrested) for driving while suspended after lifetime forfeiture on January 2012, went to court and judge set pretrial and dad got attorney. Attorney died 3 weeks later, office never contacted dad nor did court system. Fast fo...
Bench Warrants do NOT expire. There would have been no reason to "reissue"it. When police respond to a landlord tenant dispute, they would not think to to do a warrant search on the landlord. As my colleague noted, your father was well-aware of the matter and he also knew that his attorney died. Apparently, your father thought it would go away. Moreover, if this fouled a deal in the 11th hour, it could only have done so if your father lied to his present attorney about past offenses. That said, any attorney who would accept such an assignment without running your father's driving record is not the brightest bulb in the box. NOTHING in your facts points to any misconduct by law enforcement.See question

So, you have unaddressed injuries, you are unfamiliar with the process, AND your employer is represented by their own attorney. If you do not realize how badly you need an experienced Workers' Compensation attorney, there is NOTHING I can tell you that will make any difference.

I was in a car accident early last year where I was clearly not at fault; I was stopped at a red light and a drunk driver hit me. I had a very small fracture on my elbow and tissue damage and as a result I went through about 7 months of physical ...
Talk to your attorney. The only thing that seems wrong is the medical. How are you paying $20,000.00 for physical therapy? Didn't you have any health insurance or med pay on your car insurance? Your health insurance would have paid less than 20% (except for ER) and you only have to repay them 2/3 of what they paid.See question
