    Workers' Compensation should pay all bills and provide you with income for any time you were not able to work. That said, work-related eye injuries are NOT compensable unless your CORRECTED vision is worse. I your vision is unchanged or can be corrected by stronger glasses, there is no permanency beyond the present cash value of a lifetime supply of eyedrops.

    Make any attorney explain what they can do for you BEFORE you hire them. You have not told us whether this is an uninsured motorist claim or whether your wife was at-fault. That will determine whether the medical providers can subrogate. If this is an uninsured motorist claim and the carrier has offered the policy limits, seek a flat fee to create the special needs trust but there is no reason to pay an attorney a 1/3 fee.

    I agree with my colleagues. The only thing I would add is that you need to be very careful that you get permission from YOUR insurance company BEFORE you take any money from the at-fault driver so you do not jeopardize your UIM claim.

    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.
