A: You should at least meet with a personal injury attoreny to discuss your legal rights. Most personal injury attorneys will provide for a free consultation. Insurance companies have adjusters, investigators, and attorneys in their corner. You may want to hire an attorney to protect your rights. It will all depend on the facts and circumstances. There are a number of qualified personal injury and worker’s compensation attorneys in your geographic area. Good luck.

A: Contact a member of the Fla Assn for Justice in the County where the wreck happened. They give free consults. You defiinitely want to speak with someone because you have some complicated issues between workers comp, the comp "lien," etc.
