I was riding in the back seat when a car rear ended us I am suffering injuries from my liver and a spinal compression fracture and hospital bill is $17,428 my ambulance bill is 842
The person who caused the wreck is responsible for all your medical bills, including future medical expenses, plus lost wages, pain and suffering and an amount for the permanent damage that a compression fracture will cause. I would advise you to at least take advantage of a free consult with an attorney early on in the case to make sure that you get all the compensation you are entitled to.See question
We was rear ended and I was injured and Im suffering a back injury and a bruised liver
The insurance company of the person who caused the wreck is responsible for paying your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and all other damages you are entitled to receive. However, they may pay only when you are ready to settle with them. If you need help paying your medical bills now, while you are still getting treatment, the insurance company of the person driving your car may have medpay coverage to also help you. If there is medpay coverage, you want to make sure those coverages are properly coordinated in a way that benefits you before the insurance company or the medical providers.See question

There are a number of lawyers who have experience with tractor-trailer cases and would be willing to speak with you. I don't know why your attorney is wanting to back out at this time but once he does you will have 1 year to refile or be forever barred. If he hasn't non-suited yet, it would be better to get it handed off to another attorney first so they can talk with you about your best options. It sounds like liability is pretty clear in this case. The truck driver has a duty to make sure the lane is clear before moving over to pass another vehicle and he should have seen you.See question
Need to know if I should seek a lawyer for help
Typically a suspended drivers license does not void your insurance coverage. If your insurance policy was active at the time of the wreck, that policy will cover you.See question
On 7/7/16 my small 80yr.old mother entered a big box store, got a manual wheelchair with the metal basket attached, lifted the basket to it's vertical stay, and turned around to sit. As she sat the metal basket fell onto the top of her head, cause...
Your mother is entitled to be reimbursed for her medical expenses, reimbursement for any lost wages for her or anyone who has been taking care of her or taking her to medical providers. She is also entitled to be reimbursed for mileage to and from doctor appointments and for future medical expenses. Additionally she should get an amount for her pain and mental anguish as well as an amount for any permanent scarring. Since she declined the CT, I assume she didn't think the head injury was that significant, but you do want to make sure she didn't suffer a concussion. The amounts for the pain/anguish, scarring and any other permanent injury are not tied to a specific formula so they are hard to quantify in an email. Most attorneys will give you a free consultation and would be willing to go over those numbers in more detail without any obligation. Good luck.See question

You are entitled to all of your medical bills, past pain and suffering, future pain and suffering, future medical expenses, past and future lost wages, an amount for scarring and disfigurement and also compensation for the permanent impairments you will suffer. Knowing your age will also help me value your future pain and suffering and your future impairment. There are a lot of other factors that can increase the value of your claim. I would suggest getting a free consultation with an attorneySee question

The $5,000 in medpay probably should not have gone directly to the medical providers, but it may be too late to get that back. If medicaid has paid any bills relating to your wreck you must work out a reimbursement agreement with them. Also, providers typically have 6 months following treatment to bill medicaid. You will need to get final settlement approval from medicaid confirming they are not seeking reimbursement from the settlement.
If the other medical providers have filed liens on the case, the insurance company probably will insist that they be included in the settlement. If they have not filed medical liens, you have more options. I would at least call an attorney and speak with them about these issues, because they are too complex to simply answer in this context. Even if you don't pay providers out of the settlement, they could still file suit against you for the unpaid bills.
I was in an auto accident (got rear-ended) about 1.5 year ago and went ER a few days after that for pain in the knees. Since the other driver gave false insurance info, I went thru my insurance to get the car fixed. Eight months after the accident...
First of all, $500 sounds too low for the injury you describe and the treatment you needed. I also think Allstate is incorrect in refusing to pay for medical treatments based simply on the degree of impact. You should at least talk with a personal injury attorney and examine your options. Almost all of us offer free consultations. You didn't say how long it took for your knee to heal (if it healed) so it is possible their offer is not even in the ballpark.See question
My 17 year son was driving and was hit from behind Geico has taken 100% for their client. My son went the hospital he suffered a concussion his second in one year. Geico is telling me that son is not getting settlement for pain and suffering becau...
As other attorneys have indicated, Geico is incorrect. In actuality, the age of your son might suggest a greater amount because of the closed head injury. I would suggest your son be evaluated by a neuropsychologist to determine the extent of his head injury before settling with Geico. You also want to look for less obvious symptoms of his head injury, like fatigue, irritability, etc.See question
other passenger on the bus grab the wheel of the bus making the bus crash into a ditch off side of the freeway.
If you are injured, you start by getting medical attention immediately. You may want to hire an attorney, depending on the severity of your injuries and the reasonableness of the adjuster for the bus company. I would certainly suggest you speak with an attorney and determine if you would be better off hiring one.See question
