Im sorry to hear about your accident. I can relate to your situation, having had a severe accident myself. Two back surgeries later, I can tell you that accidets with these more complicated injuries really benefit from representation by an experienced attorney. That would include valuation, which is what your inquiry seems to be based upon. Depending on the severity of the impact (accident/collision) and your prior medical history, the insurance company may be very aggressivde with you. Be...
I suspect that most jurisdictions follow the rule that Atty Andriotis stated for Florida. It is that way in Hawaii, and, it seems to me the most reasonable approach. Talk to your lawyer. If you feel no better after that, go get a second opinion from an experienced personal injury attorney in your area. Many will give you a "free" opinion about your situation. Good luck
Generally, the driver making a left turn has the greater duty. Its been my experience that jurors and arbitrators sometimes take little other information into consideration and find fault on the left turn driver.
If the driver is over 18, you need to name him in any lawsuit.

The employee may not sue the doctor. Workers compensation is the exclusive remedy against the doctor. The emploee may, however, have a third party liability claim against you. You need to consult a defense attorney that specializes in medical malpractice. You must also notify your equipment company. If no one but you was named in the lawsuit, your attorney could make bring them in as parties, or, move to dismiss for failure to name an indispensible party. Good luck!
