    Answered . I'm sorry to hear of your injuries. You should seek treatment for all injuries without delay and explain to your doctors that the injuries all followed the car accident. Was the other driver cited by police? Were there witnesses to the accident? Have you submitted an operator's report? You should speak with a personal injury attorney who can evaluate your liability claim, inform you of your legal rights and remedies, explain the legal process, negotiate with the insurance companies on your behalf, and take the case to trial if necessary. I have been handling these cases successfully for 25 years if you would like a free consultation.

    Answered . You can pursue a claim against the other driver for the injuries you received in the accident as a result of the other driver's negligence (fault). If you have not already done so, you should seek treatment for your injuries, with the medical expenses being paid through your car insurance and health insurance. You should also consult with an experienced personal injury attorney. I have been handling such cases for over 25 years. You can reach me at 617-361-5310 or at rchyman@yellin-hyman.com and can get more information at our website at www.yellin-hyman.com.
