Personal injury attorneys typically handle cases on a contingency fee basis and give free consultations. Use the Find a Lawyer tab on Avvo to find one in...

    I agree with Mr. Schroeder. You mention getting a settlement offer soon. Do not settle at this time. You should retain a Workers Compensation attorney to assist you with your claim.

    Your approach in asking your question certainly has tweaked a few folks, but here's a reality check for you. You will be dealing with professionals at the insurance company representing the guy who rear ended you. They will love the fact that you don't have an attorney and will seek to do all they can to limit how much they pay you. You also will not get a "number" from anyone on this forum. No attorney is going to be able to give you a substantive answer without reviewing all of the...

    Slip and fall cases can be difficult. Just because you fell on a puddle of water at the store doesn't automatically make them liable. You will need to show that the condition that caused your fall was caused by the store, or that the puddle was there for for such a long time that they should have known about it. Also, you don't say anything about the extent of your injuries, if any. In any case, assuming you have injuries get medical treatment and consult with a local personal injury...

    That sounds like a horrible accident to have been involved in and I'm sure its been difficult for you and your parents. Unfortunately, this forum doesn't really function as a jobs bulletin board, so you may not get much in the way of a response to your post. You will have to take the initiative and contact attorneys to find one to represent you. Otherwise, you need to consult with a personal injury attorney to assist you who can investigate and give you guidance as to how to proceed....
