    Based on the facts you stated this appears to be a significant exposure case. He will be entitled to medical expenses past and future and pain and suffering damages.The past medical expenses are based on California Supreme Court decisions such as Howell V.Hamilton Meat Co. and its progeny cases. Although media care might have paid only a fraction of the medical bills, still future care cost can be substantial. So,if you are insured, hopefully you have a seven figure policy limits.If not you...

    Generally chiropractic treatment is OK in soft tissue injury cases. Changing chiropractor or treating doctor must be done with caution. If you have an attorney you should sit and discuss this matter since the treatment, reasonableness and necessity will be an issue if the case goes to trial. Second, certain chiropractors may have a reputation with insurance companies and this must be done with caution. Finally if you are not receiving benefits from treatment you should evaluate if the...

    The value of a personal injury case depends on a number of factors. If the injured party has full recovery the amount may be reasonable . However, if there if there are fractures,surgeries, head injury or any hardware installed from surgery,it may be a game changer. It is really hard to evaluate a case from the outside without more details. If the lawyer is experienced in taking cases to trial, he must have a good idea as to the value. If the lawyer is just a settlement lawyer, he/she may...

    What is your question? Were you stuck in a malfunctioning elevator ? Any injuries? If you were in a malfunctioning elevator and you were an employee in the building complain to OSHA. I do not see a case for damages without some facts justifying it. Good Luck.

    Generally attorneys charge about a third of the settlement in personal injury cases that are not litigated. As you must be aware injury cases are handled on a contingency fee basis and attorneys charge what they charge based on the following: (a) There are no hourly fees paid by the client out of pocket and the attorney takes a risk of losing his/her time and costs invested if the case is lost. (b) The difficulty level of cases require that reasonable feeds must be charged so that the...

    Yes, you can file a Government Tort claim with a request to file a relief for filing a late claim. Generally it will be denied by the County Board of Supervisors. At that time you can file petition with the court attach ing your request for relief you filed as an Exhibit along with a copy of the claim and rejection notice. It is discretionary for the court to grant it,but more likely than not if the reasons for filing a late claim are set forth the court will grant your request. Also...

    Although Driver A with blinker on may have caused some confusion,it cannot be considered a legal cause for the Judgment made by Driver B. To prove Driver A to be negligent you need to prove that the actions of A legally caused B's crash.While A might have caused confusion and an annoying situation,it is far from legal causation and cannot be considered negligent.

    Your posting is not very clear.It appears that you were in a collision and you were referred to an attorney by an insurance agent. It also appears that there is a cross-complaint filed against you. This is what I can reasonably infer from your post. If that is the case you need to sit with your attorney and air out these issues. If you cannot agree and if you are dissatisfied you must seek other opinions. If there is a cross-complaint,if you have insurance that I assume is the case,the...

    From the nature of your question it appears that you are upset about a modified status by the WC doctor.I think the problem here is that you are handling the case yourself. Workers Comp is a highly technical field of law. You probably are not aware that you can change the doctor by using a different MPN(member provider network) doctor. You probably have issues regarding Temporary Disability(TD) and your treatment and back to work orders. Getting angry at the doctor does not help much. The WC...
