I was walking past our local hospital in Illinois and I fell in a hole and my leg was bruised up andhad lots of lacerations I went into the hospital to get checked out they took a lot of pictures and made a statement I was wondering do I have a la...
Anyone can sue anyone. If bruises were your worst injury, you can't afford to sue. If you were injured beyond bruises, many facts need to be known AND you MUST have pictures of the site before any attorney could provide any meaningful advice.See question
The other driver admitted the fault but the police report does not mention that
The way this works is that you ask a question. What is your question?See question
On 1/23/17 I got a bad sinus infection I went to urgent care she gave me 875mg of Amoxicillin antibiotic. By 2/4/17 I finished all the medication and I was worst off then when I went to the other urgent care. So I left work and went to another u...
You have no viable claim. C-Diff is a reasonably foreseeable consequence of antibiotic therapy which was clearly indicated by your sinus infection. There was no negligence and there cannot be any recovery.See question
I am a bus operator for Chicago's largest public transportation. I was hit by a driver and injured, no surgery just physical therapy but still have pain daily. The driver did have insurance for 50,000, I do receive workers compensation, but my law...
The only thing your attorneys have done wrong is their failure to explain the dynamics. You need to understand the following:
1.) Your attorney CAN negotiate an agreement where you receive some money. Though the Workers' Compensation carrier DOES have a statutory lien on your 3rd party recovery, only YOU can authorize settlement. You don't have any incentive to authorize settlement if you don't receive any money.
2.) The attorney handling the 3rd party claim will be limited by statute to a 25% fee on the amount repaid to the Workers' Compensation carrier. You will pay the same fee whether you have one attorney or two.
3.) You cannot settle your workers' compensation claim until you complete your medical care. You CANNOT settle your 3rd-party claim without the permission of the Workers' Compensation carrier.See question
I own two vehicles, one I never drive so I keep it parked at my apartment complex. I was hit last night while it was parked and he admitted fault and gave me his information and has car insurance. Since my vehicle that was hit never goes on public...
Whether you have insurance has NOTHING to do with the at-fault driver's responsibility to repair your car.See question
I have a 3.7 gpa and yet to take the LSAT.
Barring further indicia of alcohol abuse (i.e. additional alcohol-related offenses), these incidents should NOT be of concern to the character and fitness committee member who will interview you when you seek admission to the bar. Do NOT omit these incidents if and when you do seek admission to the bar. Good luck.See question
I was in an accident and was uninsured due financially being unable to keep up insurance. I wasn't found at fault but the other persons insurance company is demanding that I pay all the cost for damages and etc. Am I responsible or should I seek l...
You ask a rhetorical question. Of course you do not have to pay the insurance company if you were not at fault. That said, the insurance company would not be seeking reimbursement unless they believed that you were at fault.
Your failure to have valid insurance has nothing to do with THAT analysis.See question
It was dark, around 6:30 am and barely raining. I was traveling less than 50 mph in the inside lane. I started to hydoplane to the outside lane and then another car hit me from behind also in the inside lane. His front ride side hit my back rig...
You were driving "too fast for conditions." You are responsible to maintain control over YOUR car, at ALL times. You did not. You were at fault for the accident and you are responsible. Turn it in to your insurance and forget it.See question
I was hit by a car as a pedestrian. 100% the drivers fault and this was already determined by his insurance company. I was out of work for total of 5months. Completed many months of therapy and an epidural injection. I have a few bulging discs and...
If you have an attorney who monitored your medical care, the case is worth $300,000.00, provided that you did not have higher limits on your policy (yes, I know you were not driving - your auto policy still covers you.) However, if you have no attorney, your claim is probably worth VERY little. If you didn't have surgery, you do NOT need surgery. NOBODY will prescribe opiate pain meds as maintenance in this day and age. Unless an orthopaedic doctor evaluated you at least twice per month and WROTE that you could NOT do ANY work, the wage loss may be worthless.
Without an attorney the case is probably worth the cost of the legitimate medical care (NOT chiro and excessive PT) + $5,000.00. With an attorney FROM DAY ONE, the case is worth the policy limits. If you failed to hire experienced counsel shortly afterwards, it probably cost you at least $250,000.00.See question
I was involved in a serious car accident with a uninsured driver while he was working for papa johns. I'm sure he has no money or savings since he did not carry any insurance. I started a uninsured claim against my insurance company. My 9year old ...
There is no table to look up the answer. BOTH you and your daughter have a claim, not to mention repair of your vehicle. An attorney would NOT issue a demand without ordering ALL of you medical records and medical bills.
On top of everything else, if you accept money for your injuries, you MUST repay your health insurance/Medicare/Medicaid. If you do NOT have an attorney, you will be obligated to pay them an EXTRA 33%.
It is NOT because we are greedy or want to take your money. You simply have no understanding of the many dynamics to be considered. Moreover, many insurance companies (e.g. State Farm) state in their UM coverage that the matter will be resolved by tri-panel arbitration. You choose an arbitrator, SF chooses an arbitrator, and the two of them decide on a 3rd. How will you choose an arbitrator? How will you represent yourself in the arbitration? Who will represent you when your insurance company's attorney takes your formal sworn statement with a court reporter?
