In Texas if you are on the job and the employer does not subscribe to Texas Workers Compensation then you may very well have a compensable claim. You only have show negligence on the employer. I would definitely contact an attorney. There are statute of limitations on filing these claims, so I would do so sooner rather than later.
If you have uninsured motorists or personal injury protection insurance coverage then you should definitely call your insurance agent. You might also consider calling a products liability attorney to take a look at the vehicle, if the vehicle is still available. Other than that you should call an attorney to at the minimum and get some advice on what other options are available to you.
Anyone who was riding in the car that received an injury may have a claim for money damages. But there are other factors to consider. Mainly, if the other car had liability insurance and if they have accepted responsibility.
I suggest you contact an attorney to discuss your options.
Good Luck, Coby
If this case happened in Texas then the statute of limitations is two years from the date of occurrence. You should determine the exact date of injury and contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. If it is not too late you have then have them file a lawsuit to preserve your claim.
As usual your child's health should be of first priority. The owner of the dog or even the store can have some negligent exposure for the dog. Typically, they dogs have to have some sort of history of behavior problems but it isn't always necessary to prove up a case. My office has handled several of these type of cases, but you for sure should consult with an attorney before talking to the store or the owner of the dog.
Absolutely consult with a qualified personal injury attorney and have him review all of the facts of the accident and your damages. Remember insurance companies are not your friends. They are in the business of making money. They do that by not paying claims.
