other passenger on the bus grab the wheel of the bus making the bus crash into a ditch off side of the freeway.
If you are injured, you start by getting medical attention immediately. You may want to hire an attorney, depending on the severity of your injuries and the reasonableness of the adjuster for the bus company. I would certainly suggest you speak with an attorney and determine if you would be better off hiring one.See question

First, follow up with a family doctor or somebody else you trust. If your brother has health insurance, ask the providers to bill it to his health insurance at this time. This will help get the bills paid now and minimize the pressure on your brother. Second, check with your brother's own insurance to see if he has any short term benefits that can help him right now for any lost wages. Third, if any other insurance adjuster calls, avoid talking to them until he is done with his medical treatment. Your brother should also consult with an attorney before talking with the adjuster. Most personal injury attorneys will offer a free consultation.See question
The stairs were leading to a tee box. I used the stairs to walk down and was holding the handrail when the middle step completely gave way and the nails came out of the base of the stair and slammed me down the ground below. When we informed the...
Yes. If the company or its employees knew of the condition and failed to take proper steps to remove the danger or warn its clients, they are liable for the harms their inaction caused. This includes medical bills, lost wages, compensation for the injury itself including pain, and compensation for any visible scarring.
Take pictures of your swollen ankle, bruises and where the skin was taken off of your foot. Go see a doctor and get checked out. The golf course will most likely have an insurance policy that covers premises liability issues like this one.
Don't talk to the golf course about settlement until you complete medical treatment. Certainly you should call an attorney that offers a free consultation if for no other reason than to discuss the proper way to coordinate your health insurance benefits at this time.See question

As Tim pointed out, Nationwide can be difficult to deal with. You need to be made whole from the wreck, which includes getting reimbursed for all damages including monetary compensation for the pain and injuries themselves. Further, the amount needs to adequately reflect the negligence of the other driver and hold him and his insurance company fully accountable for all harms caused. I would suggest you at least obtain a free consultation from an attorney in Arkansas.See question
I was involved in a car accident to day where other driver was at fault and my car was tottaled
It should not make any difference to your claimSee question
I got injured by some drunks at a bar and doctors told me I have radial fracture of my right elbow.
First question is whether you have facts to show a lack of security. Where were you injured? How were you injured? How would better security have prevented the incident? Your proof may require an expert witness who can testify about proper security and how the bar fell short.
Second question is the severity of your fracture. Is it a Type III fracture, where future surgery is required, or is it a Type I that needs to be in a sling for a week?
You definitely should consult an attorney. As others have indicated, most of us offer free consultations.

You are entitled to be compensated for all medical bills incurred, plus an amount for all pain, suffering and mental anguish suffered. You should at least speak with an attorney. Most will offer a free consultationSee question
Service animal killed by school bus driver driving on the wrong side of the road. What type of attorney do I need?
You want a personal injury attorney who can help you prove the bus driver was at fault and also knows how to properly value the loss of your service animal. You will want to make sure you get a free consultation before you decide to hire an attorney and you want a guarantee that their fees are contingent on winning your case. Most of the ones listed on Avvo offer free consultations and contingent contracts. You also want to nail down all your witnesses as soon as possible, so you want an attorney who specializes in motor vehicle collisions.See question

There are a few things that need to be done now. The first is to make sure all insurance coverages are being properly coordinated. Usually in Arkansas you want your health insurance to be the primary coverage for medical bills. The girl that caused the wreck will ultimately be responsible for the medical bills (along with additional amounts for the severe injuries, pain, and possible scarring and other intangible losses). But in this case the first thing to do is to start working on stretching those dollars so that we can increase the chances that you and your husband can be made whole again. As others have suggested, you most definitely should consult an attorney and you shouldn't be charged for that initial consultation.See question
Wife victim in a rear end collision no major vehicle damage other driver clearly at fault medical bills $8000 at fault ins co offered $5000 and wife pay medical bills what should We do now?
It's not too late, but I would speak with a couple of attorneys. The insurance company is not making a reasonable offer. Call an attorney and hire one you are comfortable with. Also make sure you hire one that will work on a contingency basis.See question
