You have a right to request a panel of four physicians and go for a second opinion. However, as already advised, I would consult with a workers compensation attorney first. You never want to use the panel of four card until you have to.See question
I am a physician working as an independent contractor for a hospital in Alabama. I am seeking counsel for unpaid wages. The agency that pays me is based out of Wisconsin. I'm not sure where I need to see an attorney. Thank you.
If you have never been to Wisconsin and were actually employed in Alabama, it appears as though Alabama would be the proper jurisdiction and venue. However, if you signed any agreements, that could change the evaluation.See question

More importantly, how were you injured? What are your doctors saying? Where was your incident - county? There are many questions which must be answered before anyone can assess the potential value.See question
My son got hit by a car when he was 4. He is now almost 19 which Huntsville Alabama requires. How does he go about getting his money. He now lives out of the country.
It depends if the money is in court, a trust or an annuity. If the funds are in court, he needs to petition the court and provide evidence he's reached the age of 19. If he had an attorney who is still around, he/she should be willing to assist.See question

An attorney cannot give you a value without knowing a lot more: damages to car, bodily injury damages, history of the other driver, who owned the vehicle; where was the wreck, what medical treatment was received, etc. Once all the information is complete and analyzed, an attorney can give you his/her best estimate of the potential value of the case. Of course, eventually, only the adjuster who writes the check or the 12 people sitting on the jury can give you an actual value.See question

An attorney would have to look at all the facts and circumstances. You may have a co-employee lawsuit for the removal of a guard. Did the machine have a guard at one time? Or, you could have a design defect claim against the manufacturer. Typically, the damages recovered in a third party claim are much more than what you could recover in a workers compensation claim, especially if it's a scheduled injury, i.e.: to the arm, leg, foot as opposed to the body as a whole. No attorney can give you a full yes or no answer without assessing all the information. Third party claims can get quite expensive, so the damages must be significant. Yours sounds significant enough, but I would have to see the medical records. Other important questions: will you be able to go back to work? How old are you? What's your education level? What was your average weekly wage? It's definitely worth consulting attorneys. Usually, such consultations are free.See question
I had a injury when i hada extraction o f my wisdom teeth cant taste or feel my tongue. Lawyere said expenses off the top and split 50/50 is this common?
Most attorney charge 50% for medical malpractice cases, especially in Shelby County because they are expensive and VERY difficult to win, especially in a conservative venue in Shelby County. Usually, it's 50% plus expenses. I typically charge 40-45% if I take a malpractice case simply because I like for my client to get more than me if possible.See question
