    Sorry to hear about your situation. I think that you absolutely need an attorney on this one. On a small case you may be able to handle it on your own and may not need an attorney. In this situation an attorney will likely prove to be invaluable. There will be much more than just negotiating with Geico. Very likely you will be looking at a lien filed by the hospital and depending on your insurance situation you may have a health insurance company seeking reimbursement for medical expenses...

    Chiropractic care is valid and sometimes the chiropractors are much better witnesses at trial than a medical doctor. Sounds like you have a good strong case.

    If your Mom was not at fault then the issue of her insurance will not matter. As long as the at fault driver has insurance your Mom will be fine. I would be happy to discuss the case with you free of charge. It would be a good idea for your Mom to speak to an attorney.

    You will need to get all of the medical records and then consult with an attorney who will also need to consult with doctors and perhaps a toxicologist to determine if you have a good strong viable claim. Good luck to you.

  8. In Arizona, can IME's be video taped, and can a I bring a 3rd party witness to my exam?

    The answer to your question is controlled by Rule 35 of the Arizona rules of civil procedure. The rules do allow you to have another person present and do allow you to audio tape the proceedings. In order to videotape you will need agreement of the other side or an order of court. You must show good cause for the video. If the other side does not agree file a motion to videotape. I have done so many times and have never lost one of the motions to videotape. Good luck.

    First I am very sorry for your loss. If your Mom was in a company van then you may have two claims. The first a workers compensation claim and the second a personal injury claim. If the driver of the van your Mother was in was not at fault then you will have two claims. On a case of this type I think that it would be a very good idea to consult an attorney to discuss your options and what rights you may have. The attorney can guide you and also give you an idea of the value of the claim....

    The law recognizes emotional distress as a personal injury. As stated above this can either be a claim for negligent infliction of emotional distress or intentional infliction of emotional distress. It is normally important to have some documentation of the manifestation of distress in the form of a doctor or counselor visit or medication. Mental and emotional injuries can be just as devasting as purely physical injuries.
