Soft Tissue Injury Claim?
Soft Tissue Injury Claim?
Hi! I Was In A Car Accident On Nov.8Th In Maine. We Were All Stopped At A Light And Some Lady Without Insurance Blasted The Guy Behind Me, Which In Turn Caused A 5 Car Accident With Me In The Middle. From The Impact From The Back And The The Front, My Hat Ended Up In The Back Seat And I Had Immediate Back Pain. I Went To The Chiropractor The Next Day And Got X-Rays. It Pushed 2 Of My Vertabrae Together (Casuing Headaches) And Somehow Shifted My Hip, Making One Leg Shorter Than The Other. I Was Goin To The Chiro 3 Times A Week, Then 2 Times A Week, Then 1, Over The Course Of The Last 3 Months. I Just Got Released Monday, But Feel Its Not Quite Over. My Car Insurance Has Fixed My Car, Paid My Medical Bills And I Am Now Dealing With An Uninsured Motorist Claim With Them, And They Are Seriously Low Balling Me. My Car Repairs Were $1500 And My Chiro Bill Was About $1600. I Did Not Loose Any Time At Work, Cuz I Am The Only Worker.I Cook For 20 College Guys At A Frat House, So I Had To Work. I Worked, Stooped, Lifted And Everything That Comes With Gettin Groceries, Putting Away The Food Truck Order And Was Unable To Do Any Cleaning For The 1St Month. The 1St 2-3 Weeks After The Accident Were The Absolute Worse Trying To Work. They Offered Me $1000 And My Coverage Covers About 4 More Chiro Appointments. I Wa Stold If I Take It To Small Claims, I Can Get Upto $6000. So Isjut Need To Know How Much I Should Settle For. Thank You For Your Time.
If you were to file suit in small claims court, you would have to not settle with your insurance company and sue the driver who has no insurance and most likely no assets. The $6,000 is the max that the court will settle for, but not a guarantee you will get more than what your insurance company offered and still be only getting a judgement of $1,000 and then you would have to go after the driver at fault who has no insurance to collect, which may have nothing to collect from.
You were smart enough to have uninsured motorist coverage, otherwise with this person who had no insurance, would get nothing period for your injuries. Even if that person had insurance and with this being a 5 car accident that he caused, his insurance company would have to pay out 4 other drivers and may not have had enough insurance to pay everyone.
The 3 times medical or even the other guy stating 8 to 10 times medical is a myth that everyone throws out, but is NEVER used in settling injury claims. Soft tissue injuries AKA whiplash is a strain/sprain of your neck/back. Granted you were sore and had chiropractic treatment, but you did not have anything serious, otherwise would have seen a specialist.
If they offered you $1,000, then most likely the maximum they "value" your injury is between $1,200 to $1,500. Also if you were to settle, then even though you have 4 more chiro treatments left in your coverage, you would have to pay out of pocket for those 4 treatments if you continue, since once you settle, your auto medical coverage and/or PIP stops.
Like I stated above, if not for the uninsured coverage you were smart to buy, there would be no settlement at all since the driver had no insurance.
Civil Rights Lawyers?
Can You Help Me With Some Serious Insight Into What A Civil Rights Lawyer Does, And The Basic Concept Of The Career Besides The Obvious &Quot;Civil Rights&Quot;..
Is There Realyl A Demand Of These Lawyers?
There is a demand for civil rights lawyers - but, as some have pointed out, the jobs don't pay well...and, as others have suggested, if in less articulate ways, there are some who would criticize those who do civil rights work, even if they don't have a clue as to what the work entails.
Classic civil rights work tended to connote voting rights and other anti-discrimination lawsuits. Now the classification could be expanded to include ADA litigation, work done by the Innocence Project (DNA cases) and other, even less popular criminal defense.
For more insight, you should contact some agencies that do the work to chat with their lawyers.

Temporary Physical Custody Rights?
If Someone Has Temporary Physical Custody Of His 2 Girls (Mind You This Is The State Of South Dakota) Would He Be Able To Move Out Of State Without Getting In Trouble? The Mom Has No Rights But The Dad Has Temp. Physical Custody. So Can He Move Out Of State?
I guess that would depend on what you mean by no rights. Do you mean the mother has no custody rights or no legal rights?
If you have full LEGAL custody it should not be an issue if it is for a job that you need to support your children.
Here is an article that helps explain the difference and allowences between physical and legal custody.
Where Do I Read The Laws That Lawyers/Judges Read? The Detailed Laws. ?
We Can Read Constitution, But Can We Go Library To Read Laws That About Anything? Such As Drunk Drive Is Illegal And The Punishment About It? Tenants And Landlords? Divorce? Real Estate?
Federal and state laws are all available online:
Edit: Right, what he said. The American legal system is junk, basically, and even the full set of statutory laws will do you no good unless you know how to interpret them through the decisions of judges, and then only those cases that are still considered "good law." What I linked are the USA's statutes, but to get the case laws that include what's still valid and what isn't, you have to either visit a local law library or buy a subscription to a service such as LexisNexis or Westlaw.
