You will want to consult with a Personal Injury attorney who is familiar with these types of cases. Although the driver is clearly at fault, his insurance company will not want to pay you a fair compensation.
You really need to get an attorney. I would recommend that you do not give a statement until you speak to an attorney. It will not cost you a dime to talk with one of us so that we can protect and represent your daughter.

Generally, when you injure yourself while working, you are entitled to 66% of your average weekly wages if you miss more than 7 days. The insurance company is also responsible for directing and payment of your causally-related medical treatment. If you had to go to the ER immediately after given...Read more »
On another job site that my employer has a contract with to do a collection and was injured. By law my job is not required to carry worker's comp because there are less then 4 employees. Can this be a personal injury since i wasn't at my job site?
Short answer: If you were hurt while working for your employer and you were helping him do his work at simply another location per direction , you are covered by the Workers Comp Act. You will most probably need a lawyer because they will probably deny given the facts.
I've had severe complications with 3/back surgeries. (2014-2017) My Neurosurgeon terminated our relationship, and now won't issue a referral for my continued care. I was told to contact my PCP,and they weren't the physician that referred me to my Neurosurgeon to begin with
None of it has to be a structured settlement unless you agree to structure the settlement. Given the amount of the settlement, this will have to be Court approved as it involves a minor child. Also, a conservator will need to be appointed to manage the funds given the amount. There is also a...Read more »
Wow. It is faulty equipment; however, that's really odd that one would get pulled over for that alone. I have little doubt that if you go to the hearing, it will get significantly decreased or dropped based upon the fact it was day light.
In TN, you have three years within which to file and serve a lawsuit (there are some exceptions such as if the at-fault party works for a municipality...). There are a few issues i can already see such as have you gone to the doctor yet? If not, that could be an issue. You really should simply...Read more »
The case was prosecuted in 2013 and was allegedly headed to mediation a few months ago. Case was strong. Depositions have been conducted this year, the claim has passed initial reviews and survived - we were looking at trial soon. Now the dismissal was voluntarily filed with the clerk without...

My dad went to the hospital for his edema because it caused him to miss work. While at the hospital, they only focused on his high blood pressure and high heart rate, and once it was under control they sent him home with a mild diuretic that didn't help(he still had a lot of fluid on his...

Have documented responses from ZILLOW- they acknowledge deficiencies in their "systems" but refuse to take corrective action. WILDLY varying "Zestimates" in similar, side by side properties - and NO coherent response?? ZILLOW penalizes diligent homeowners who properly... Read more »
I don't see it--it's an estimate. They can use whatever metrics they want. If you feel your property is worth more then the agent selling it for you can promote it appropriately. They aren't required to change just because you took advantage of the tax system to challenge the...Read more »
You really should contact a member of the SC Assn for Justice rather than totally do it yourself. The value of your case depends on what happened, how it happened, what the reports say, what your medical records say. You have been talking to the insurance company which may have given them a lot of...Read more »
She was transferred directly from that hospital, by ambulance, to Duke Medical Center where they discovered the infection almost immediately. It had already become Sepsis and she died from that infection 6 days later. I can produce the medical records from both hospitals and a letter from Duke... Read more »

I see you live in NC but you are asking about a SC claim.

You should consult a member of the SC Assn for Justice who handles comp and injury cases. I suggest you contact Carl Jacobson in Charleston. He gives free consultations. Tell him I sent you. Generally your suit would include the amount of money comp may ask for.
