It is obvious that you need counsel. First and foremost see a doctor and have that doctor memorialize your injury and state whether you need to observe any restrictions. The attorney you hire will NEED that to help you.See question
I was rear-ended and my car was totalled. I do not have a valid licence or insurance at the time.
If you or a passenger were injured, you should consult local counsel ASAP. As my colleagues have advised, your failure to be licensed and insured is wrong but has NOTHING to do with your ability to recover.See question

It is more common to seek an FMLA leave while off work because Workers' Compensation provides NO job security. In most cases, your employer can fire you the day you are injured. The employer's sole obligation is to provide benefits under the WC Act. Discuss with your attorney.See question
I was injured at work in 8-2014. TTD stopped completely in 10-2016. Work comp has paid no medication since day one. Reached mmi 3-2016. Been with same attorney 1 an a half yrs. UNABLE TO WORK. diagnoised with degenerative disc disease.
I, too, must echo Mr. Hoffman's advice. The words may get in the way. You will probably have the equivalent of a bench trial before an Arbitrator sitting as judge. As Mr. Hoffman advised, you will probably take depositions which takes an additional 3-6 months BEFORE you can schedule the Hearing. The Hearing usually takes no more than 1-3 hours but it can take the Arbitrator 3-15 months to write the Decision. There are 3-4 possible appeals, each of which takes about one year. If you do the math, that's 1-5+ years after your Hearing/Trial.
You need to meet with your attorney to learn what is going on. It makes no dense at all that WC would pay TTD but not pay for medicine.See question
Few days ago, I was driving a truck as a CDL driver, and I rear ended another truck who was bobtailing. No one was hurt nor sent to the hospital. The truck driver only had a slightly bent mudflap. After the mishap, I received a citation from the W...
NEVER make an admission in a public forum. Witnesses may no longer be necessary. How many semi/semi fender benders do you think there were in in Willowbrook during the first week of May, especially where one was a tractor, only?

I was injured at work. The injury was due to a safety concern brought to the attention of the administration several times. If they did not address the safety concern directly until after I was injured, can they be held liable? I am looking for th...
NO. The employer's liability is limited to your WC benefits. You DO need a WC attorney if you don't have one.See question
I was off for 3 months of work because I was injured at work and had surgery. I filed a workers comp claim and they denied it. I hired a lawyer to settle but I was let go when I returned back to work with no restrictions. What type of lawyer can I...
I agree with my colleagues. I would only add that you MUST conduct an aggressive job search or you will not be able to claim wage loss in the retaliatory discharge claim. Good luck.See question

You have TWO SEPARATE CLAIMS that are handled independently: 1.) Property Damage; and 2.) Personal Injury. If they are offering fair market value for the car, you can and should settle THAT component of your claim. As my colleagues have advised, it is foolish to settle the personal injury component of your claim without getting checked out by an orthopaedic doctor and learning whether the burns you sustained will scar.
As Mr. Hoffman correctly noted, yours was really a trick question. ALL personal injury valuation is dependent on the extent of your injury and NOTHING ELSE.

My colleagues are ALL correct. I would only add that it's a BAD idea to specifically exclude your son from ANY vehicle if you have 3 cars. Murphy's law will get you. The time will come when you want or need him to use a cor on which he is specifically excluded and he will have an accident that WON'T be covered. It is expensive to have teen drivers. There really is no shell game to make it cheaper.See question
