You have a great claim for negligence against the Bud Light delivery man. The Bud Light man, much like the operator of a motor vehicle, has to exercise due care when he pushes his dolly. Of course, if you were standing still and he hit you from behind, that makes the claim that much stronger; but you clearly have a compelling claim of negligence against the delivery man. With respect to your injuries, you need to be certain to diligently attend all medical appointments because if you miss doctor visits and you develop an infection, you may be to blame for the cause of the infection. Infections can range from minor to very serious. You also have the right to be examined by a plastic surgeon, at the expense of Budweiser, and to have the laceration on your foot evaluated. If you have a permanent scar, you have the right to undergo scar revision surgery and Budweiser would have to pay for that procedure. With most lawyers, all of the medical treatment can be provided on a lien basis, which means the doctors get paid out of your settlement; and they do not get paid until after the claim settles. If you miss time from work, you are also entitled to get compensated for your lost earnings. Don't delay; be certain to entrust your case into the hands of an attorney with plenty of experience. Best of luck!

You have some great facts, but your case definitely needs to be developed further to corroborate your story. We would look at surveilance video and reports. You should hire an attorney so you're not bullied around ! There is no upfront cost to hire an attorney. With a case like yours it seems like you have some good facts in order to get a high settlement. The most important thing when building your case are: liability (were you at fault); how bad are your injuries to your body and your property; and of course how high is the at fault person's policy. A lot of these things sound like they are not complete yet in your case so its something that is worth hiring an attorney for in order to get a sense of whether you have a case and what the strategy would be for you to build a strong case! I've handled many of these cases.

You have a VERY GOOD case. Clearly, the delivery man was not looking where he was going when he ran into you with his cart and you suffered significant injuries. Your case will be against Budweiser against Budweiser or the delivery company or both. You should retain an attorney IMMEDIATELY who can refer you to medical providers to follow up with your treatment and document the full extent of your injuries. Those medical providers will accept you on a lien basis; you will not have to pay for treatment up front but rather those providers will expect payment when your case is resolved. DO NOT delay in hiring an attorney as any gaps in treatment could reduce the value of your claim. Finally, DO NOT provide any statements or discuss your claim with anyone other than your attorney. Please feel free to contact our office for further assistance.
