The settlement will include compensation for your medical bills. Whether you and your attorneys pay outstanding medical bills from your settlement proceeds or not will depend on whether there are any liens asserted by your medical providers or other entities, and whether you choose to have your lawyer pay the bills from the proceeds or whether you decide to be responsible for them yourself. You should discuss this in detail with your lawyer.See question

You,should get a lawyer right away. They can start Voc rehab but there are limits on what they can and can't do. Also, a lawyer can guide you through this process...if you handle everything correctly and avoid certain traps, you can actually make your case stronger. But, you really don't need to try to navigate these waters on yourself.See question

Your employer cannot require you to settle and they cannot force you to resign. However, employers will often require a resignation as part of a clincher settlement reached in your Worker's Compensation case. Whether it is in your best interest to clincher your case and resign your employment will depend on the specific facts of your case. It sounds like you have a case that absolutely needs legal assistance. I would strongly encourage you to contact a Worker's Compensation lawyer quickly.See question

I would discuss this directly with your lawyers. Sometimes settlements of wrongful death cases require court approval. In addition, liens may need to be resolved. These delays are often frustrating for both clients and their attorneys. As others have said, the interest goes to the State Bar, not to you. Again, talk to your lawyers about these issues.See question
I am concerned as to what would happen if my husband got into trouble for drinking and driving or caused injury while I was living in England. Would I be held responsible or could I be sued?
It is possible that you could be named in a lawsuit if the car is titled in your name and you provided the car to him for his use, but the viability of that claim will depend on the specifics of your case. Hopefully, you have very good liability insurance and your insurance company will do the right thing and get the case settled.See question
Was rear ended while sitting at stop light. Driver admits fault but insurance lapsed a month ago. I do have 30/60 in uninsured motorist coverage. I went to ER...Diagnosed neck and back strain. Currently seeing a chiropractor to help with pain.
Even though liability is admitted, the insurance company (evrn though it is your insurance company) will fight you on the amount of your damages. Studies show that insurance companies pay higher settlements to parties who are represented. You might want to get a free consultation to better assess whether you need a lawyer.See question
