    Assuming the driver of the car left the roadway and struck your child on the sidewalk and your child is not at fault, then it seems outrageous to me that the insurance company is only offering a portion of the medical bills, unless that is the policy limit for the driver/car owner? None the less, you need to at least have the case reviewed by an experienced civil litigation and trial lawyer that knows automobile liability and insurance laws. Even if the insurance is offering the policy limits,...

    So sorry you were in an accident! You need to retain an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. Based on your injuries and the potential liability of Walmart, your case could be much more valuable. At this point $7,500.00 would not cover your past and future medical bills, lost earnings, loss of earning capacity, or pain and suffering? In California you have 2 years from the accident date within which to file your lawsuit or your case is barred. You hopefully have pictures...

    If the home owner has insurance most policies have a no fault med pay provision that could cover your medical bills up to the limit, which is usually between $1,000-$10,000. Otherwise you are looking at filing a personal injury lawsuit and trying to prove that there was something about the premises that was dangerous and that the home owners knew or should have know of the danger, and either warned against it or fixed it so it was safe. if the accident simply occurred because you had a weak...

    Well i can't believe you are in so much pain and have not gotten yourself to a doctor! You may be doing additional harm to yourself by not seeking treatment. Get to your family doctor right away and ask them to refer you to orthopedic and neurological doctors for evaluation. You will also need to have x-rays, and maybe an MRI and electrodiagnostic testing to see what might be causing the pain, numbness and tingling. You also need to immediately seek the advise and representation of an...

    I would not send them anything, hire an experienced premises liability attorney to represent your son. You should write a statement as to how the accident occurred along with all the other details for your lawyer; take pictures of your son's injuries now and as they progress; pictures of the scene and get the contact information for any witnessses so that you are prepared to assist the attorney. Let the attorney deal with the hotel and their insurance adjusters and/or lawyers.

    You need to find an experienced medical/dental malpractice attorney in your area to evaluate the case. You will need to show that the dentist(s) care fell below the standard of care for your local dental community and that the treatment was the legal cause of your injury. Also when you received treatment you may have signed an acknowlegement of attendant risks associated with your care? You need to make sure you get a complete copy of all your records and films for all your dental care over...

    If they have denied your claim and your damages are within the small claims amount then file your case to make sure you don't run out of time as you only have 6 months from the date the claim was rejected to file the lawsuit or it is forever barred! If you have sufficient time remaining, then submit a written demand with your proof of property damage, medical bills, lost wages, milage costs to and from body shop and medical appointments and proof from doctor of any claim for future medical...

    You should hire an experienced personal injury lawyer in your area right away and get the proper legal advice. Were you able to secure any of the broken glass from the soda cup or from passing through your digestive tract? You need to keep that glass as evidence! Good Luck!

    You can drop your civil case anytime by filing a request for dismissal, but you may owe your lawyer for their work and any costs advanced on your behalf. In addition, if you have filed and served your lawsuit against McDonald's and you just dismiss it without their agreement to waive costs, they will be deemed the prevailing party and can file a costs memo for the recoverable costs under Code of Civil Procedure Sections 1032 & 1033.5. Talk to your attorney before you take any steps on your case.
