    The law still protects you while riding your bicycle. If the young driver has automotive liability insurance, you have the right to make a claim on that policy because of the driver's negligence. An attorney can help you deal with the insurance company. Remember, the insurance company is not on your side. The company is in the business of taking in premiums and paying out as little as possible on claims. Additionally, you should make sure the attorney you speak with will help negotiate the...

    Based on the injuries you describe, that settlement figure sounds low. On the other hand, we really need to have many more facts about fault, how many different insurance policies are at play, how all of the medical bills you have incurred have been paid, etc. to really give you a more exact answer. Try contacting another lawyer. It has been my experience that a phone call with an attorney where there can be free flow of information is helpful. If you are currently represented by an attorney,...

    The fact is, insurance companies and corporations are not going to give you anything without a fight. Your attorney needs to file suit at once. If the two year statute of limitations runs, you will have no legal recourse. Implore the attorney to file suit at once.

    First, that must have been terrifying for your wife and I hope that her injuries are not too severe. Yes you can sue the trucking company. You should discuss the situation with a Board Certified Personal Injury Trial Lawyer as soon as you are able. Trucking cases are far more complex that a typical motor vehicle case and you will need know-how and experience to maximize the value of your case.

    You may very well have a case, but more information is needed. Cases that involve 18 wheeler collisions are far more complex than the run of the mill auto accident. You may not need a lawyer for this matter, but you should contact a Board Certified Personal Injury Trial Lawyer for help and answers to your questions. Make sure the attorney is not charging you for the consultation.

    The distribution of a wrongful death settlement would depend upon many different variables. In answer to your first question, as a general rule, the value of a spouse's wrongful death case will be higher than the value for the claims belonging to the decedent's parents. Your second question seems geared toward setting a value for your particular claim. This depends on many variables. The first one is the amount of settlement proceeds available. In Texas, state law only requires drivers to have...

    Sure you can. In many cases you don't even need a lawyer to handle your claim. You can find more information by downloading one of our books. Educate yourself before you attempt to handle the claim on your own. There are some very good lawyer websites with information to empower the person that wished to handle the claim on their own. With that said, you are likely far better off with a Board Certified Personal Injury Lawyer on your side. Do you have more information about what you mean by "I'm...

    If the funds are locked up in an annuity the only avenue you have is to sell the annuity to a finance company in the business of purchasing annuities. Frankly, this is a very bad financial decision. You will need court approval for this method. If the funds are in some type of special needs trust, talk to the trustee regarding your needs. Additionally, there no doubt was an ad litem appointed for your son. Think of talking to the ad litem about your situation. All in all, your attorney knows...
