Since the medical cost is minimal, I would not base the value on that, nor would I consider contacting an attorney as an advocate. However for five weeks of pain and severe discomfort and emotional discomfort I would think there should be some dollars and cents that could be awarded. Perhaps if I could learn that a personal attorney might be available for a benefit ONLY if an award is given, I might reconsider my first statement. How does one come into that kind of relationship and know they are legitimate advisors?
Would you consider my situation one that could be supported? or do you need to know further details?
I mean is it one that would have possibility for a financial award?
Will my response be able to be viewed by other customers of this site? I feel a bit of hesitation to make full disclosure of "what Happened". It touches on an invasion of my personal body, I know you are a personal injury attorney so are probably not a stranger to these kinds of reports. I just do NOT want it viewed by other viewers searching out answers.
Okay I think you have supplied me with adequate answers and I appreciate your forthrightness. I will soon decide what is best for myself and others in this situation. Thank You for your assistance and bearing with my slow input.
