I was living work and fell and broke my wrist on my employers property and ground, can I start a work compensation case and a personal injury case or just one, either work compensation or personal injury? thanks
It is very possible that you may have a WC case; I agree that you should speak with one of the Avvo attorneys and provide more information to discern who would be the responsible party. I hope you are able to find some relief after your surgery, and wish you the best of luck.See question

I absolutely agree; you should not attempt to deal with the insurance company on your own. It sounds like you may have a bad faith claim, but we would need more information. Please do not hesitate to contact one of the many attorneys on this site. We have plenty of experience handling this type of situation.See question
The insurance company wants to speak to her. Should we speak to a lawyer first?
Absolutely; I would recommend having her speak to a lawyer prior to speaking with the insurance company. He / she will prepare her for the interview with the adjuster, and can be present for the interview. Best of luck to both of you.See question
they say it is to find out if personally injured will be responsible for paying back medicare or medicaid if any recovery is acquired from them.
Typically, the insurance company needs to run a Medicare / Medicaid search for any liens before they will pay for any damages or bodily injury claims (i.e. Medicare / Medicaid is entitled to be reimbursed if any of your medical bills were the result of someone else's negligence, and you obtain recovery from the incident). In my experience, they will normally reduce their lien by at least 25% if the insurance company won't make a satisfactory offer to settle. So to answer your question, it is a normal request.See question
She been hospital liked and biosynthesis done bad promblem
As long as you can prove that the mold in the apartment was the direct result of your daughter's illness, you may have a case, and you can seek reimbursement of her medical bills and any property damage that was incurred as a result of the mold in the apartment. Good luck.See question

The employee saw her fall didn't offer any help, then where she works with special needs, the girls asked if he was going to put up a sign and if he knew it was wet over there and he said he knows. Never put up a sign. Can we sue stop & shop for s...
If he knew it was wet and didn't put up a "wet floor" sign to warn patrons, then you can certainly sue the store for injuries, pain and suffering, time from work, etc. The store owed its customers a duty to maintain the premises in a safe manner, and their employee failed to do so. Best of luck to you.See question
I was in an accident in 2011 and considered at fault. Both cares were totaled and no one was seriously injured. My passenger and I have suffered no negative side effects from this accident but the other party has now served me for a personal injur...
It just sounds like the other party couldn't settle with your insurance company, so they are suing you to get more money out of your insurance company. Chances are if it was a minor accident, their bills aren't anywhere near the policy limit. In RI, the statute of limitations is three years, which would explain why this is happening now, just as the time is probably about to run out to file suit. In any case, just forward the summons to your insurance company, and they will provide you with a defense. If it does go to trial eventually (this usually takes several years, and a lot of times, they will settle just to avoid going to trial) you will need to appear in court, but like I said, that will be much further down the road. In the meantime, they will be contacting you for information during the discovery stage. Good luck.See question
I wasn't there during accident
They need the owner's information for the claim, along with that of the driver. Your insurance should cover the accident, even though your son was driving. Best, Don.See question

It does sound like both the dealer and the insurance company may have contributed to the negligence here (in RI, we use a theory of comparative negligence). My advice would be to have her treat for any injuries she may have sustained as a result, and consult with a local attorney in the mean time to evaluate the incident. Good luck to both of you.See question
