It's been 37 days since my injury at work,and I haven't received a check yet,what should I do?
It usually takes about a week. You are not entitled to be compensated for the first 3 days unless you must remain off-work for 14 days or more. Make your attorney explain.See question
A steel rod dropped on my my lower left leg that required 9 staples. It left me with a ugly scar.
Absolutely. You are entitled to disfigurement OR impairment but NOT BOTH. Your attorney needs to decide whether the permanency or the disfigurement is worth more and go for that.See question
It's been 37 days since my injury at work, I had an attorney for the first 3 weeks.I fired him because he would not return calls. I got a new one now! How would I know if my claim was denied or held up?
If you are not being paid, your claim is probably denied. If an attorney MUST force the employer to pay, the absolute fastest remedy would take 3-4 months. Every time you hire an attorney, he must share your fee with the prior attorney. That does NOT provide incentive for the attorney to devote attention to your file. Be careful. Meet with your attorney face-to-face and make him explain the process so you know what is taking so much time. Good luck.See question

Trying to what settlement wouldbe for 3spinal fusions in Illinois
The simple answer is whatever they offer IF YOU HAVE NO ATTORNEY. As my colleagues have told you, MANY more details are needed BEFORE anyone can estimate value. It does you no good to "know" what the case is worth because you would NEVER be able to persuade an insurance company to pay if you are not represented by experienced counsel.See question
I recently got charged with marijuana possession. Me and some friends were smoking on the river, and apparently the cops were watching. We floated down the river always in a canoe and they pulled us over. I had no marijuana in my boat whatsoever, ...
Please recognize that in your post, you ADMIT to the charges by saying that "me and some friends were smoking..." You could not have "been smoking" unless you had contact with the Marijuana as observed by the police. You also admit that it was YOUR boat. You do NOT need to physically touch something to be charged with "possession." Consult local counsel ASAP.See question
I got my first underage this past weekend. It's my first time ever getting in trouble for anything and I blew a 0.025. How will the court date work? Do I plead guilty or not guilty? And it's called the initial hearing, so is there more than one he...
The purpose of an initial Hearing (formerly called an arraignment) is for the Court to advise you of the charges against you and for you to enter a plea. You can and should request a continuance to hire an attorney if you want any chance to avoid the mandatory one-year license suspension. ONLY local counsel can tell you whether you have any real chance to avoid the suspension. As I advised yesterday, you should meet with local counsel ASAP to discuss fee, likelihood of prevailing, possibility of a hardship license, and cost of representation. You need to weigh how important it is for you to drive and the increase in your auto insurance against the attorney' fee and likelihood of prevailing.See question

If you were food-stamp eligible before your injury, you are still food-stamp eligible. If you are saying that you cannot afford to buy food on your weekly benefits, you may be receiving the wrong amount of TTD. About 80% of my clients were receiving TTD at the wrong rate before they hired me,
Hire experienced local counsel. Don't think that just because things are "going smoothly," everything is in order.See question
