    I agree with attorney Deborah Barron's answer. To expand, and not duplicate her answer, it sounds like you have not yet tried to apply for social security disability. You should seek out a social security disability lawyer. You should also check and see if you qualify for any spousal benefits from your husband's social security. If there was some defect in the property (did the stair lack a rail, were the steps not up to Code, etc., then you may have a personal injury case. Seek the services...

    Most reputable personal injury lawyers take this type of case on a contingency, meaning you only pay if they recover money first, and the lawyer is paid out of the recovery. Based on the information you provided, this is a valid and legitimate personal injury case. You need to speak with a qualified personal injury lawyer right away. Preserve all evidence, you bloody clothes witness information, take pictures of injuries, etc. Again, see a lawyer immediately, and please read the disclaimer...

    Do you have an attorney? If so, why are you not asking him/her? If you do not, then let me state that this is one reason that you should have an attorney to take care of this stuff for you. With that said, let me get off my soap box and try to answer your question. If you signed a lien, you might be responsible for honoring it. However, it strikes me that since you are not familiar with medical billing, and your doctor is, you were arguably mislead. I am sure you understand why the doctor is...

    In response to your question, what do I do now, here is a quick response. Call a personal injury lawyer in Santa Cruz right away. Do not delay. Do not speak to the at-fault insurance company. Check your car insurance and seei if you have medical payment coverage and if it will apply to this situation. Document your case with photos of your bike, injuries, the scene, etc. Contact the local Victim Witness office. They will likely pay your medical bills for you, and then expect repayment if your...

    The three answers from the other attorney's were excellent and I have little to add. Yes, you can be sued, and there is strict liability. If you have home owners or renters insurance, contact them immediately to see if they will cover this. GOOD LUCK. Adam Sorrells Injury Lawyer in Chico

    I agree with the other answers given. I will add that early on in most run of the mill injury cases (they are all different, so your question is hard to answer and generalize) the costs in the beginning are relatively low. Ordering medical records, photos, investigation, etc. range from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand, depending. If the case cannot be settled without filing suit, then a superior court filing fee is about $395.00, a process server is $35.00 to $200. Then depositions...

    Just to add to what attorney Hurd wrote, it is hard to tell from your question which type of insurance you are speaking of? If it is health insurance, it can work differently than automobile med pay reimbursement. This is a very complicated area of law that many attorneys do not understand. Without going too deeply into this, it depends initially if the insurance company in question is a governmental entity, or is a health insurance company or auto med pay which is governmend by CA state law,...

    This depends on several things. Your friend (of course) needs to contact his insurance company right away. If he already had insurance, there is often a grace period when a new vehicle is purchased, where it is covered by the existing insurance. I am not sure if this applies to a motorcycle, or if it applies to your friend, but that needs to be examined. Next question, was there a loan on the motorcycle? If so, the lender may have required insurance, so maybe he got insurance through the lender?...
