Keith’s answer: Go Bloodhounds. From a proud AHS grad, you definitely need an experienced personal injury attorney right away. Stop talking with the insurance company immediately. You can speak with an attorney for free. Contact a Board Certified Civil Trial Lawyer with experience handling these matters. While you may hesitate believing that you'll recover more without giving the lawyer a fee, you should discuss excluding the initial tender from a fee calculation. Our office does just that in cases like you are discussing. You also might jeopardize other coverage which may be available to you trying to handle this on your own. STOP. call a qualified lawyer right away.

Keith’s answer: You can sue your friend if your friend either negligently or intentionally caused you harm. The real question would seem to be 'should' you sue your friend. If he/she is a friend, do you really want to sue him/her? There are times when we must sue a parent, grandparent, boss or friend, but those instances usually involve cases where the friend has insurance and the claim is limited to the insurance. A lawyer looking at your case, which you provide no factual information, would initially try to determine whether the claim is one that could be insured against, and then determine whether there is insurance in this case. Pursuing your friend, if no insurance, is probably not wise, unless he/she has significant assets to pay any judgment you might obtain. Remember the OJ Simpson moved to Florida to avoid collection of the Ron Goldman Family judgment against him, so judgment debtors refuge in Florida. You should consult with an attorney. Good luck

What if i was in an accident on a job but was not hurt should i have been seen by a doctor?: car accident

Keith’s answer: Your question says you were not hurt, so why see a doctor? Most employers are overprotective, requiring employees go to the doctor even when not hurt. The point of going to the doctor is to diagnose, document and treat injury.. which you say you don't have. If you are injured later in time, your little trip to the doctor when you weren't hurt would have to be explained away as the insurance company for the person causing your real injury attempts to blame that injury on this isolated work accident. Assuming you are not hurt, no trip to the doctor is probably best for you.
