I was involved in a car crash almost 5 years ago .I was traveling

I was involved in a car crash almost 5 years ago .I was traveling up a hill on a very narrow road when a large truck/van came around the corner and hit me head on i was stopped as i had seen him coming over the hedge. I was badly injured in the accident i had a severe whiplash and a l5s1 disc injury which ed to me suffering long lengths of time in bed and having to take an extreme amount of pain killers . Eventually i had to have an epidural which relieved the pain for a short few months however I've undergone surgery to have a disc ectomy which seems to have solved the problem .Im in court for a settlement and I'm looking to know how much would be a reasonable sum of money to accept .At the time of the accident i was self employed and i am unable to supply proof of income as my business had to be closed as i was unable to work at it and there was no money left to get my accountant to finish my accounts .My working career has involved a long history of self employment and long distance truck driving . I had always regarded my full acrtic licence and extensive knowledge of the haulage industry as my fusion in life as in if all else failed in buisness i could always rely on been able to drive a truck for a living .After the accident this has been removed from me, i could no longer work at driving as it aggravates my condition .The Driver on the day of the accident took responsibility on the road and no guards were called .However the owner is now denying this and is claiming i was still moving .My Question is what in your professional opinion is the appropriate settlement figure i should accept ?

My girlfriend was injured in a car accident where the other

My girlfriend was injured in a car accident where the other driver was issued a traffic citation and later pleaded guilty in traffic court. My girlfriend was knocked out and her car was totaled. She was taken to the emergency room by ambulance where we spent half a day in X-ray and CAT scans before she was finally released. The next few days she was bruised and scraped but nothing major, however she began to have strange smells in her nose like sulfur or ammonia. This has persisted for many weeks now and she consulted several doctors, finally an eye-nose-throat specialist diagnosed permanent nerve damage in her nasal region - a result of the car crash. She does not want to spend a long time trying to soak the guilty party, but wants to settle without trial for a reasonable compensation for her injuries. Our question is what to expect as a fair offer, given her injuries, considerable medical costs (10,000+) , and permanent loss of smell/taste. What is it worth for the insurance company to settle?

ForCustomerattorney. If I have workers compensation

For SeattleScott attorney. If I have worker's compensation lein against my personal injury settelement. Then is it the job of my personal injury attorney to fight for the redcution/removal of the WC lien? Or I have to hire WC attorney to do this?Please notice the lien in NY state is already reduced by 1/3 because I have to pay 1/3 to the attorney in personal injury settelment. In other words say the original WC award was 90,000. The lien amount is then 2/3 of the WC award which is 60,000 (reduced by % of attorney fee on personal injury award). The award in personal injury is 960,000. After the 60,000 lien is taken out of the recovery it is 900,000. Should my attorney fee be 300,000 (1/3 of 900,000) or 320,000 (1/3 of 960,000)?

My sister was involved in a car crash two weeks ago that was her fault (she ran a light). Her car and the other car were totalled. The other driver had no immediately evident serious injuries, but went to the hospital just in case.She has extensive assets in the stock market. Her insurance coverage was the typical 100/300 coverage with 100,000 property damage.Questions:how long can someone decide to sue her?what does the suit have to be based on? In other words, if the other part has no long term injuries, can they still sue for everything she is worth?Can she transfer all her assets to someone else so that there is no longer anything to sue her for, or is that somehow illegal? (no suit has been entered at this time, but we're nervous.)Thanks!

My wife was just in an accident. She was rear-ended with my 3 y/o in the back. The car was crushed with glass all over my son. She refused the ambulance, and the other driver was cited. She is now home and concerned about possible injury as she gets sore. What should she do? She is waiting for a rental to be dropped off at the house.

For Seattle Scott. This is a typical injury case. For simplicity purposes I communicate with my attorney via my work e-mail. I know that the attorney-client privelege does not atatch to it as e-emails can be monitored by my employer. Under what circumstances can the the defendants ask for the discovery of these e-mails? If possible can you point to some case law on it.
