Daniel John Christensen's answer I am so sorry to hear about this happening to you. While this is not the type of law we practice, I would encourage you to contact the State Bar Lawyer Referral Service and ask for a business litigation attorney. Good luck.
Daniel John Christensen's answer There is nothing legally keeping you from working your second job that can be done with restricted or limited duty. But, you should be extremely careful so that you do not aggravate your injury, which the defense will use to argue they should not have to be responsible for treatment after that point. I can't speak to your case specifically without knowing more. I would recommend you hire a Board Certified Personal Injury Trial Lawyer like DC Law to get advice on your case. 512.888.9999.
Tammy Lyn Wincott's answer Your question doesn't provide enough detail to answer. If you are wanting the status of a case you are involved with you may contact the attorney representing you or the courts. Many courts allow online access to see the status of your case.
Daniel John Christensen's answer You have a potential claim for your injuries. It will be important to not lose possession or access to the vehicle. If you would like our help, please call our office at 512-888-9999 for guidance.
Timur Akpinar's answer From your description, it sounds like this could be a workers' comp matter (use of a saw and a percentage loss). Contact a workers' compensation attorney without delay. Many give free initial consultations. You describe a serious injury and a very important issue - the determination of a percentage of damage/disability. Additionally repost your question in the workers' comp section of this board where a WC attorney could pick it up.
Daniel John Christensen's answer Harris County has a searchable electronic docket, however, there are only certain ways to search. Go to the court’s website and/or call the clerk and they may be able to help. Good luck.
Rahlita D. Thornton's answer Sadly, it’s often your insurance company that may not be providing the plaintiff with full disclosure that indeed the amount being offered is the policy limit. Also, for the policy limits to be offered there were probably some serious injury there. Communicating with your insurance company’s attorney for answers is where you should start. Good luck and this is what happens when insurance company adjusters get to make decisions without really needing to consult with the policyholder.
Rahlita D. Thornton's answer You need to get right on it and begin investigation on the details of this accident. But, your delay in seeking medical treatment may devalue your case. We do handle these cases and can get you to a doctor asap. It does not matter that you do not have health insurance if the other responsible driver is at fault. What type of "truck" hit you? Feel free to reach out to us for help at 888-343-4529 #1.
S. Michael Graham's answer There is no reason to file a workers' comp claim if the incident was not work related. Work related injuries can occur off the premises if the incident occurred while you were in the course and scope of employment.
Rahlita D. Thornton's answer Certainly, we can assist you in negotiating your claim. We can pursue other damages in addition to those for your medical bills if you have the appropriate coverage. Do you have uninsured motorists coverage? If so, feel free to give us a call as we handle accident claims nationwide. 888-343-4529 #1.
Hector E. Quiroga's answer Without knowing why you were banned, it’s hard to say. Usually, though, you have to wait out the 10 years, unless you have a qualifying relative through whom you can request a waiver.
Justin Charles Roberts' answer As always, the individual facts and circumstances of your case will affect the answer. However, Texas law generally recognizes the idea of comparative fault, meaning that your recovery can be reduced in proportion with your fault for the injury. If you are found to be 51% or more responsible for your injury, then you are generally barred from any recovery.
Gregory S Baumgartner's answer Proper defendants usually are the truck driver and the trucking company. Others can be a potential defendant, depending on the facts, like the maintenance company (if the truck is improperly maintained) or the leasing company in some circumstances. I am sorry for your loss.
Timur Akpinar's answer I do not practice in Texas but your question remains open for four weeks. In general, attorneys do use limited power of attorney provisions to conduct limited banking transactions, such as enabling deposit of checks on behalf of clients, where the purpose is to avoid the need for client to come to the office to sign check for deposit into attorney account (IOLA) to enable payment to client. A Texas attorney might be able to provide more in-depth insight as to the operation of your particular...
Grant St Julian III's answer Make sure you don't give any falses statements to the police to try to protect her. You may let the investigators know you do not want to pursue the matter, but don't get yourself in trouble by lying.
Timur Akpinar's answer You need to consult with a Texas attorney. If you were represented by an attorney, your attorney should have the file documents, including a release if one was signed. I do not practice in Texas but I noticed your question was not picked up by anyone and it moved to the back pages.
As a general matter, when a person settles a case, they typically sign a release. That release often contains provisions memorializing the fact that money received is deemed to satisfy all claims and expenses...
Timur Akpinar's answer The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Highway Loss Data Institute maintains statistics for motor vehicle crashes by state, vehicle miles, no. of vehicles involved, and other parameters. You could contact them and ask if they have vehicle-specific crash-related data. https://www.iihs.org/iihs/contact-information
