    If you operate a taxi for a company notify them of the accident. If it is your own company put your own carrier on notice of he accident. This is the reason people and companies have insurance. Can't say if you will be sued or not but you could be. If you don't let your insurance carrier know they may try and deny coverage if you do get sued.

    I am a Las Vegas personal injury trial attorney. The majority of my cases are referred to me from other attorneys that know I can take care of my clients all the way through a trial. In Vegas we have a jury trials, bench trials which are ones that do not have a jury but only a judge. We also have one day "short trials" which usually follow arbitration and rules permitting production of evidence without live witnesses. Other trials may last days or weeks and require many witnesses. There...

    I am sorry to hear about our daughters accident. You have not provided very much information but from what has been provided it is clear you do not have a personal injury attorney and need on as soon as possible. There are a multitude of time sensitive dates and procedures that must be done in a specific manner that need to be accomplished on her case or she will be forever prevented from any recovery. Please utilize Avvo's find a lawyer tool to locate a competent personal injury in your city.

    Most personal injury attorneys take cases on a contingency basis. Meaning that they do not get paid unless they recover money. You will rarely, if ever, have to come out of pocket for anything. Consult with your local personal injury attorneys.

    You are most likely still entitled to recover pain and suffering as it appears no settlement has been reached. However, it is widely known that unless you retain a personal injury attorney that is competent in handling cases such as yours the insurance companies will likely not provide you with a settlement as favorable as they otherwise would. I suggest that you immediately contact a personal injury attorney in your city as soon as possible to ensure that you are not taken advantage of by...

    There is a potential conflict of interest. However,you have not provided enough facts presented to make a final determination. I would recommend retaining a different attorney to be on the safe side.

    Yes. Although personal injury settlements/awards are not taxable unless they contain compensation for lost wages they can be attached for other reasons such as past due child support. Please contact a local attorney if you have not already done so. My firm in Las Vegas handles personal injury claims such as yours and would be happy to speak with you.

    You need an attorney. The insurance companies are known to not try and help victims such as you that were injured due to the negligence of their insureds. Even when they offer to settle with you it is almost always well below what you would receive if you had an attorney. It is extremely important that you go to a doctor and follow all his instructions, not miss appointments and not give any statements to anyone other than your doctors or attorneys.

    I would really need to see your policy to accurately tell you. Just call your insurance agent and have him explain your coverage. Also, make sure the insurance company is aware of the accident so they can defend you and help you with your claim and any claim that may be made against you.
