    Absolutely. Please, at the very least consult with an attorney that handles TBI matters. These cases are complex & require skilled lawyering to maximize the case value so that your husband is properly compensated. One of the most important things to be advised on early in an accident case in "preservation of evidence" & thus this process must be started immediately. Best regards, Emery Ledger Attorney At Law

    I absolutely agree with what my other colleagues have mentioned. Jury instructions are the rules that a jury will use to determine who is at fault in your car accident case. You want to play as much of a role in establishing the exact instructions that the jury will use when deciding your case. Be sure to contact an experienced trial attorney for more advice regarding this matter. Best of luck to you.

    What you have described is a very serious accident with a serious injury. The difference in recovery with a lawyer will likely be much higher than without as the insurance company knows that a good law firm will litigate your case if you are not properly compensated. With that said, I could tell by your request for information that you are unaware how most accident attorneys are paid. Your worry about not being able to afford an attorney resulting in you "going at this alone" is unfounded....

    You should consult with an attorney today. Do not accept the settlement without at least speaking to an attorney first to gather your available options.

    To add on to what my other colleagues have mentioned, you are under no obligation to provide your policy limits to the other insurance company. However, disclosing policy limits can be very helpful in resolving a claim. It helps your insurance company proceed with the claim and it allows the other party to take a more realistic approach in assessing liability. More often than not, individuals who actually get sued are those who are unwilling to disclose their policy limits. However, again, you...

    Police reports can be very helpful when it comes to determining liability. The police report has a description of the scene of the accident, how the incident occurred, witness statements, and the officer's conclusion as to which driver caused the accident. Even if the other driver admitted he was texting and the incident was his fault at the time, there is the possibility that he will deny being at fault later on. The police report is very helpful in these types of situations to contest a...

    Our firm policy is to contact the client either by telephone or in writing ever two weeks. Please keep in mind, our constant contact may be beyond the call of duty. Your attorney likely is keeping you informed of critical portions of your case. My suggestion would be to reach out to him/her and explain that you would prefer more communication and they shouldn't have a problem with that. I wish you the very best!

    Be sure to contact a criminal defense attorney to provide you with more advice regarding this matter. If you the leave the scene of an accident that only results in property damage, you can be charged with a misdemeanor hit-and-run. However, if the accident involves injuries to others, the consequences can be much more serious such as being charged with a felony. Best of luck to you.
