    Your case needs to be evaluated. Medical Malpractice cases are dificult at best and the risk of failure is always present. Unless you have a breach of the standard of care that proximately caused you an injury you do not have a med mal claim. For a viable disability case you should seek advice of counsel to see if you meet a defined impairment. If not, then the sequential process will have to be pursued, which will almost assuredly require the assistance of counsel. Past relevant work, age,...

    You should have your case screened by a lawyer who can find the right physicians to review your case and determine if your case can be pursued. The Mirenal IUD has received a huge public outcry, due to misleading labeling and product information. Feel free to call our firm if you are interested in pursuing a claim.

    Practically speaking, these are all questions of fact. Arkansas law mandates that you keep a safe distance from the car in front of you. The case really presents two issues: One is that the person behind you is most certainly af fault for hitting you; the second is who is at fault for hitting the vehicle in front of you? This is a comparative fault issue. Your faulty is diminshed greatly if you were resting at a safe distance from the car in front. If you were say six inches away from...

  5. Do I need to file an injury claim?

    Several issues here, including whether you were an independent contractor that should have been working under a worker's comp policy or waiver from the commission. If you were merely contract labor, you should have had a policy or waiver in effect. Those are side issues if you were not in an employer-employee relationship with the owner, which it sounds like you were not. The real issue is comparative fault. I think you have a legitimate claim, but suspect the insurance company may discount...

    Not enough information to decide if this is a potential medical malpractice claim or products liability claim. You have two years to bring a med mal and three to file products claim. You need to consult with counsel quickly.

    Too many unknown facts in your question. Accident reconstruction seems to be the best way to prove what happened, but that depends on how long ago accident occured. You need to get with counsel as soon as poosible and preserve your vehicle as it is until you figure this out.

    The insurance company has the right under the insuring agreement to settle the matter. If the insurance compnay settles and you and your family receive full releases from the decedent's estate and wrongful death beneficiaries, then you have no claim. The civil suit has no bearing on the criminal matter, if there is one, as the burden of proof is higher and your insurance company's decision to settle is not an admission of any guilt on your part.
