    I suspect much of the same answers to this inquiry as were given in your last. Is it possible to manage your case yourself? Yes. Should you in light of the Chapter 7 bankruptcy complications? Absolutely not. Would it be faster if you handled this on your own? That depends on whether you want fair compensation for your injuries. If you want fair compensation for your injuries, you need to complete your medical treatment, request and review all your medical records, submit a demand...

    There may be a case here. He should consult with a personal injury attorney in your area to discuss the case. Assuming there was only a laceration to his hand and no major muscle/nerve/tissue damage, the case is likely not a "Big case" but one for which he should be compensated for regardless. There is a three year statute of limitation on personal injury claims--that means your boyfriend has 3 years to bring a lawsuit. Regardless, have him speak with an attorney as soon as possible....

    Your best approach is to contact a personal injury attorney in your area. Most offer free initial consultations to talk about your case. You'd be best served by speaking with one of them.

    Absolutely not, the statute of limitation for personal injury actions in Washington state is 3 years. That being said, you should contact a personal injury attorney in your area ASAP, as the more time that passes without proper representation, the more likely it is that something will happen to diminish your ability to fully and fairly recover for the injuries you sustained in the crash. Good luck.

    My question to you is why have you waited two years to ask this question. You should absolutely consult with an attorney in your area. The insurance company knows that until you do, they have no reason to offer you fair and reasonable compensation for your injuries. What recourse do you have until you do? None. Talk with an attorney, or two, and figure out what your claim is really worth. Good luck to you.

    Assessment if a claim like this is virtually impossible without a full understanding of the incident, injuries, and treatment. You'd be best served contacting a local personal injury attorney. Most, including myself, offer free initial consultations.

    You may have insurance that protects you if you are hit by an "uninsured driver." You may also have what's called PIP insurance that will cover any medical expenses you incur up to the policy limit. Call your insurance company (the claims office not your agents office) and report a claim. Contact a personal injury attorney in your area to help you through the process. As muxh as we like to think our own insurance companies will protect us, in these types of scenarios it is always good to have...

    Assuming you have uninsured motorist coverage on your insurance policy, you should call your insurance company and file a claim. If you are injured, you should call a personal injury attorney. These cases are often complicated and you'd be best served at least consulting with an attorney. Good luck.

    There are some missing facts here. Were you at fault for the collision or was another third-party? Do your parents have comprehensive collision coverage on their insurance policy, or liability only? I suppose regardless, claims related to your parents' vehicle would likely need to be made by them. Your personal injury claim. Easiest thing would be to consult with a personal injury attorney personally about your case. Good luck.

    Sounds like negligence to me. Gross negligence has probably not been met under the facts you describe. Regardless, negligence is sufficient to support a claim for personal injuries. You should consult a personal injury attorney near you. Good luck.
