    I agree with the prior response that just because they demand $100,000 does not mean their injury justifies that amount. Most cases with $100,000 in insurance are eventually settled for below $100,000. That said, it is also true that just because someone did not appear injured at the time of the accident does not mean they were not injured. Many injuries do not start to show up or manifest themselves until a day or two after the accident. So, get together with your assigned insurance...

    Doctors usually (almost always) make a note in the medical chart something like this: "fully explained risks and benefits to patient who then agreed to the procedure." For a significant procedure, such as an operation, there will be a separate form, called the informed consent form, where the operation is explained in "plain English." However, there can be major disagreements about whether all the relevant risks and benefits were explained, or just some of them, and whether further/deeper...

    Neurology can be subjective. Just because one neurologist believes X and treats you a certain way does not mean another one will feel the same way. I recommend you get a copy of your records from neurologist #1. Then do some online work in your area and look for another neurologist, and ask friends or co-workers or others for opinions about neurologists, esp ask anyone who works in the medical field, like a nurse friend.. Eventually you will hear of another neurologist who sounds good....

    The answer can vary by state, since some state laws provide more protection than others. That said, and with the caveat that from your post I don't know all the relevant facts, it sounds like an unfair business practice which violates some state's laws, especially given the amount of delay before you were told there was a problem. I recommend you contact a consumer protection lawyer in the state where you bought the car. If you do not know any, there is an excellent "find a lawyer" service,...

    I strongly advise you unhack asap. I do not practice criminal law, but I'm pretty sure you have broken state and federal criminal laws which include potential jail or prison time. If you undo it and nobody finds out, you may be ok, but if you continue . . . . . .
