I was injured in an automobile accident (as the Passenger of my car) in California. One week prior to the car accident I had breast surgery, so when the vehicle hit us from behind the seat belt caused damaged/injury to my breast. I went to ER and had contusion to my breast wall area, within two months my breast surgeon had to remove my left implant, and keep my right. three months later had an expander put-in on left breast, and right implant was removed to be clean and re-enforced with mesh to support torn muscle. I went through expansions for nearly a year; and then had implant put in again on left breast. everything is looking good now. I went to a mediation with my case injury lawyer, and he said that we should accept the $215,000.00 settlement.... after medical/liens and lawyer fees are paid, I will walk away with $100,000.00. Is this a good settlement to accept? My surgeon is more than willing to appear in trial to testify, and has confirmed that my injuries were caused by the automobile accident... and the property damage (my car) was $5,000.00.

My daughter was in a bad car accident yesterday on the

Hi, my daughter was in a bad car accident yesterday on the interstate. There was something big in the road and the guy driving beside my daughter swerved to miss hitting it. When he did he lost control of the car, slammed into my daughters car and sent her into the side of the concrete wall. They were going interstate speeds. She had a big bump on her head and they took her to the hospital. She wasn't there very long and they released her without taking any xrays or a scan of her head. They said she was a low risk because she didn't black out. But, she was complaining of being dizzy. This morning she's in a lot of pain. She said her neck is hurting and her back is sore. In your opinion, should she be checked out a little more thoroughly? If for no other reason she could have a neck injury. I would personally feel more comfortable seeing proof that she's ok instead of an educated guess. I need a little advice. She may even need the documentation for the insurance company. Your help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I had a car accident a couple of days ago and was shocked to

I had a car accident a couple of days ago and was shocked to learn that my insurance policy had been cancelled by the company Geico for non-receipt of a policy form, not for non-payment. I had never received the indicated forms until just 1 day ago. I had just moved at the time and although my mail redirect order had been in to the post office a week prior to the move, I still have delayed mail even now. I would like to know if I have any leg to stand on when it comes to reinstating my insurance retroactively to include my most recent accident.

I was seriously burned on my lower leg by a heating pad,

I was seriously burned on my lower leg by a heating pad, which I used as normal and according to the directions. The burn itself was bad and is still healing, but I do not believe the injury was especially serious given that I did not lose the use of my leg or the ability to work as a result of the burn. With that said, I am trying to figure out if I should contact a local personal injury attorney to initiate a products liability claim on my behalf. I understand that NY law has a 3 year statute of limitations from the date of my injury. While I was burned by the heating pad several months ago (obviously under the 3 year time frame). I do not recall when the heating pad was actually purchased and from what store. Is there a statute of limitations on the product purchase date to the date of the injury (i.e. if someone is injured using a defective product today, but the product itself was manufactured and purchased many years earlier, can one still bring a products liability claim?)? Assuming NY does not limit claims on products that were purchased several years ago (without proof of purchase), are there any requirements for the serious nature of the injury (as there would be with car accidents under NY insurance law)?Please advise as to the NY law on these issues-- thank you!

I was a victim of accident in April 201ll. Lady totaled my BMW and I went to Emergency Room with pain in side. They did Xrays and found nothing wrong other than pain from trauma. I signed off with insurance company ( not my fault other person got ticket). Her ins. company paid for medical bills, replaced car and gave me $1500 for my mental aggravation. For about 8 years I have suffered from stenosis and other back problems, need knee replacements and foot problems. I am 73 and now Medicare wants me to repay $30,000 in medical bills and are saying it is related to accident in 2015. I had spinal fusion surgery 5 weeks ago and am just now finding out I had any kind of problem. I have sent Medicare previous medical documentation that I had these problems dating back several years prior to the car accident. I am 73 a widow and delirious. What recourse do I have and can you help me.JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Georgia.. Cobb County but I live in FultonJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: What do you mean? The other party was cited and I have Dr. have filed all kind of things with Medicare.
