    Even if the doctors missed the fractures, there may be no difference in her recovery and, thus, no actionable malpractice. The serious nature of her injuries would seem to indicate you should seek legal advice on the case as a whole, which I am sure you have already considered. I would talk to an attorney sooner rather than later.

    This can be a very complicated situation. I would sit down with your lawyer and have him explain the inter-relationship of the benefits and what would work best in your situation.

    Franklin’s Answer

    I would never recommend a client take a quick settlement because you may put yourself in an even worse situation in the future (if that's possible). I am sure this is an incredibly difficult situation and it is easy for others to comment who are not in your shoes. You get only one settlement for your life so please do everything you can to make sure it's a fair one. If you haven't done so already, please consult an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible.

    Franklin’s Answer

    You have many good questions for a very serious situation. Contacting an attorney like myself experienced in personal injury matters is the best way to get answers. Your wife will have a claim against the other driver. There will also be different insurance questions to answer about medical bills. Also, whether and how you pay for the vehicle would require more information.

    Franklin’s Answer

    Actually, if your father in law resides in Maryland and was hired in Maryland, he may hire a Maryland attorney even if the injury occurred in Pennsylvania. He may have a workers' compensation claim and a separate negligence claim.

    Franklin’s Answer

    You can actually hire an attorney in Maryland to assist you with your claim. Only if litigation were necessary would you need to hire a NM attorney.

    Can my old job be held responsible for my back injury?

    Franklin’s Answer

    The answer is yes, it can be covered, but I would predict that the insurance company would contest the claim for failure to timely report of the claim. Only a thorough review of the facts and medical records would allow for a better analysis. But, yes, the claim could be covered (provided filed within two years of the date of accident).

  • Health insurance after work related accident.

    I was injured at work.I was getting workers` comp. checks for a while. And the same time the employer terminated my health insurance. Can they do that? If not what can I do to have it back?

    Franklin’s Answer

    Unfortunately, if you are unable to return to your previous employer, they may be able to terminate your health insurance. Depending on a number of factors, COBRA continuation of health insurance may be available to you, but it is expensive. There are some ways through your workers compensation claim that a lawyer would be able to assist you understanding other options you would have.
