You may have a viable legal claim. Excruciating pain alone will not likely make for damages which would merit the time and expense for a personal injury lawyer to take on your case. Find out about the nature and extent of your injuries before talking to claims people. Talk to a local personal injury lawyer instead.
My responses to questions on Avvo are never intended as legal advice and must not be relied upon as legal advice. I give legal advice only in the course of an attorney-client relationship. Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions forum does not establish an attorney-client relationship with me. That relationship is established only by individual consultation and execution of a written agreement for legal services.
