The Social Security Administration pays disability benefits under two different programs:
• Social Security Disability Insurance is the program most people think of when they hear "disability benefits." It is commonly known by the initials SSDI, or just SSD, or even DIB (for Disability Income Benefits).
This program is for insured workers, their disabled surviving spouses and children. In order to qualify, or to be considered "insured," you must have worked five of the past ten years...
The situation was certainly mishandled from a public relations standpoint. Pardon the pun, but it left a bad taste in your mouth for this restaurant, and I'm sure your friends feel the same way. The restaurant should have apologized and let everyone eat for free, or perhaps given everyone a gift certificate for a meal some other time.
Unfortunately, you probably shouldn't expect the restaurant to do much more than that for you. In Texas you can't file suit for what MIGHT HAVE happened. You...
Congratulations on getting your VA disability. Unfortunately, there is no connection between the VA and the Social Security Administration. However, the medical facts that enabled you to receive your VA disability will probably be very convincing to the decision-makers at the Social Security Administration.
Good luck to you!
I understand your concerns, and I personally try to avoid walking beneath or near any construction equipment. There are, in fact, many regulations, both state and federal, that govern such matters. The problem is that regulations only work in two ways – either companies voluntarily follow the regulations, or government agencies enforce the regulations.
While most companies may honestly try to follow all rules and regulations, many do not. They try to cut corners in order to increase profits....

Auto insurance companies are generally biased against chiropractors because some chiropractors have a reputation for overtreating or overbilling. However, treatment by either a chiropractor or a medical doctor is covered by the other driver's liability insurance. You should seek whatever treatment works best for you. Your main goal is to recover from your injuries.
Texas is a comparative negligence state, so the question is always what percentage of negligence should be assigned to each person involved. If 50% or more of the negligence is on you, then you would be liable for that percentage of the damages. If the collision was less than 50% your fault, you would not owe anything.
I recommend you contact your insurance company immediately and let them advise you.
Good luck to you!
Mr. Turner's answer is correct, and it does sound as if you are a bit confused about the situation. If your co-worker has a lawyer I recommend you discuss this problem with that lawyer or his/her legal assistant. Get them to explain the current status to your satisfaction, but understand that this lawyer is not representing you and may not help you obtain your property damage money without charging you a fee. You should be able to get your property damage paid by the other insurance company (if...
I'm sorry your son was injured. You have not told us how severely he was hurt. Products liability claims are very expensive to pursue, due to the cost of expert witness testimony. Unless there are very serious injuries involved, products cases are usually not economically worthwhile. I hope that is not the situation here.
If you wish to discuss this further, please feel free to contact my firm.
You have done pretty much everything wrong so far, from taking a car without consent (that's stealing), to running a red light (it changed to red while you were still in the intersection).
If you have your own auto insurance, that company might help you. The insurance on the car has no duty to help because you did not have permission to drive the car. There is a slim possibility that you could show implied consent if the vehicle owner routinely allowed you to use the car without express...
