    Dear Poster, No it is not too late - you have 2 years in California to file a lawsuit for a personal injury. I am sorry you are going through this, but it is not surprising. Insurance companies love to low-ball victims of car-accidents. Studies consistently show that victims of car accidents get more for their injuries with lawyers than without. I agree with you that it is worthwhile to see if you can get representation. Avvo forbids us from posting responses that offer our services,...

    This is terrible - there is nothing worse than having your creativity taken advantage of by others for profit, and not getting your share of it. So sorry you are going through this! I also think you need to speak to an attorney right away - a number of attorneys offer "contingent fee" arrangements, meaning that you do not pay them unless you win in the lawsuit. You may have intellectual property rights in the video, especially if there was no written contract. Copyrights of authorship,...

    Dear Poster, I am so sorry this happened to your poor son! If it was accidental, and depending on the facts, I would definitely recommend that you discuss this with an attorney to explore your rights through an initial consultation. The law limits the time you have to bring claims. There are many good accident/injury lawyers on this site, and you should contact several to see which attorneys are the most responsive to you. . If I can be of help, please let me know. Take care, Rabeh...

    It is really going to depend on the amount of medical treatment that is needed and reasonable. I have seen some relatively minor injuries (a broken bone) fail to heal and require multiple, multiple surgeries. Other times, injured individuals get physical therapy and completel recover without surgeries or more extensive treatment. Some individuals malinger, meaning they continue to get medical treatment even though it does not improve their circumstances, and insurance companies will typically...

    Dear Poster, I am sorry you are the victim of personal injury and discrimination. I think what you are asking is not "where do I go to search for an attorney," but rather, how to find the right attorney. The right attorney, in my experience, is one that provides you with guidance, time, and understanding. If you contact lawyers, you should gauge how much attention the lawyer (not his/her assistant, staff, paralegal, etc.) gives you. Unfortunately, many lawyers are overwhelmed with work,...

    Dear Sandra, Before you do anything more, please take a moment and see if you can take your personal information off of this post - there are all sorts of internet trolls that you would not want your contact information in the hands of. Then, I would strongly suggest you contact a personal injury attorney to help you with this. Your situation is not uncommon - most injuries do not become "immediately" apparent.... they take time to manifest. Your lawyer will be able to shepherd you...

    Dear Poster, I am sorry for what has happened to you. Car accidents are the worst because they cause so much disruption in the victim's life. You will do best by hiring a lawyer to represent you. Your lawyer can help you work out getting the property damage and personal injury addressed by the at-fault party's insurance company, and maximizing the amount you may be owed. Some accident victims try to do it themselves, but the statistics do not lie, and accident victims with attorneys...

    If she disputes the position you are taking in the appeal, to counterargue her position, she would have to defend the appeal. However, she could fire her lawyers and try to do this on her own to avoid incurring legal fees.

    Dear Poster, You absolutely should get an attorney. An elbow fracture is a very serious injury! Studies consistently show that injured individuals with lawyers recover more than those without. This is a terrible accident. There is nothing worse than being injured by the carelessness of others.
