Driving for a company as a 1099 contractor. Involved in single car accident getting injured. The company had no insurance coverage on me. Fired me. I definitely was misclassified to being an employee and the other driver. With reclassification pro...
Assuming you are an employee for purposes of workers comp, I doubt your employer had coverage on the date of the accident because it seems the owner was trying to avoid getting workers comp insurance coverage. With no insurance, how likely are you to be able to recover for lost income and medical expenses?See question

This is very difficult to answer without knowing all the facts. Has a lawsuit been filed? Have witnesses, eg, employees, corporate rep., etc., been deposed? Have you hired a premises liability expert witness? Have any doctors testified on the issue of causation and severity/permanency or injury? It would take a lawyer some time to do this work and if this work has not been done, you need to get a lawyer to do it asap. Best of luck.See question

Speak to an attorney who can get a thorough understanding of the facts involved. Since you are being provided medical care under workers comp, the company seems to be accepting that you were acting in the course and scope of employment when you fell. Not sure what your job entails but if you can work such that you are not being paid TTD benefits, you would not be entitled to an employer paid IME but that does not mean you cannot see a different doctor.See question

In your question, I'm assuming the "they" you refer to is the aunt and her boyfriend. I'm not sure if they can be charged for anything, unless they provided alcohol to minors. I'd recommend you ask a criminal attorney about this.
As far as civil liability, the aunt or boyfriend, if they provided alcohol, could potentially be help responsible for the fiance's death under dram shop laws. Based on what you've stated above, however, I doubt there is any dram shop liability. I would need to know more facts to give you a better answer.See question
I was at a friend of mines business throwing a Frisbee and it hit me in the mouth and broke out two of my front teeth and I now need implants. Is he as the property owner with insurance responsible for the claim?
Agree with what has been said. There is a risk inherent in an activity such as this and that risk is assumed by those playing. Assumption of the risk is a defense that you will not likely get around.See question
Basicly I were in a accident got a claim with another insurer but they exalted their limits I dident have enough to pay my bills so we went threw my insurance for a claim and they say the tort have tendered her limit
You should speak to an attorney about this. Even if one policy of insurance is exhausted, it does not necessarily mean that there are no other avenues for you to recover. There are not enough facts here to give you any guidance.See question
I fell on a wet floor at work. (No "wet floor" signs up) I have filed all the workers comp forms with my employer and have seen a doctor for the injury (which MAY require surgery). I have six days of sick leave.
If you are out of work due to this injury, workers compensation is designed to cover 2/3 of your average weekly wage, up to $575 per week. There are many more details to it than this but the simple answer is that you should not have to use sick pay.See question

Settling a WC case takes an agreement between you and the insurer/employer so unless you agree and the Board approves the agreement, there can be no settlement and your TTD checks should continue. Best advice for you is to talk to an experienced workers comp attorney because you have multiple issues that you need help with.See question

If an appeal is filed, you may still have some leverage to settle but if your case was lost at a hearing, you have very little leverage at this point and its hard to imagine that the same pre-hearing offer will be extended.See question

This does seems like a "low-ball" offer for the injuries you discuss. An experienced workers comp attorney can let you know what to expect in terms of a rage of possible settlement values after reviewing your case. Best bet is to call an attorney - don't try to do this on your own.See question
