    Generally, it depends on how much the medical is and whether medical liens need to be negotiated down. But since all of you were hurt, I think getting a lawyer is a no brainer.

    You should get a second opinion, but frankly, things don't look good.

    I assume you are seeking medical attention for the scars. In addition all you can do is try to find an attorney to handle a medical negligence claim. Medical malpractice cases are very difficult in Texas because the legislature passed laws to make it almost impossible to even get to trial and if you do get to trial, the amount you can receive is limited by statute. They wanted to do away with your right to recover without actually saying so. You will have to try and find someone to handle...

    Unless you waived it in writing your insurance (car) includes uninsured motorist coverage. Get an attorney and make a claim under that. If you waived that coverage, there is not a lot you can do.

    By statute, the auto insurance only pays the amount your insurance actually paid, not the amount the doc charged. And that amount goes back to your health insurer. However, a good attorney can negotiate the amount that has to be paid back. Without a lawyer, you are going to end up with little or nothing for yourself.

    The card that stays with the car does not need to have your name on it. However, the policy declaration page will need to have you as a named insured, otherwise you are excluded as an un-named driver living in the same residence. So the next time it is renewed you should show up on the declaration page. It is typical for them to just add your name in their computer until the next renewal. If you are concerned, you might want to get something in writing. The next time the policy is renewed,...

    If the injuries were significant, then hire a board certified personal injury lawyer. These cases are difficult for various reasons, so the store and its insurer just won't pay without you having a lawyer on your side. Have her get the medical she needs, do not talk to the other side, and get a lawyer.
