Of course you can sue.
He probably ly will not lose his business, unless he was already on the brink, which may be the case if he tried to avoid renting the equipment.
In these tough times, in order to win contracts, contractors are having to set pricing at a point at which the only profit is in whatever savings can be realized while doing the work.
What do you mean that in your worker comp "they take 70%"? You mean they GIVE 70% right? NOT that you are getting only 30%
Most personal injury attorneys will only try to get the limits of insurance coverage available, which will cause his premiums to go up some, but he won't have to sell his truck to pay you.
Get In Accident; Same Lawyer, Same Insurance?
I Always Wondered: If Two People Get Into An Car Accident, And They Have The Same Insurance Company And The Same Lawyer, How Does That Work? What If Both Are At Fault? What If Neither Were At Fault?
The same lawyer can not represent both parties.
He would turn down the representation of the other party.
As far as insurance goes...the insurance company will open up a claim under each person's policy. Usually a different adjuster gets assigned to each claim. They handle the claim just the same as any other. This happens all the time....and it's not a big deal.

Hi, I bet if you re read your question, you'd have this huge light go off in you head and you'd know the answer!!! You HAVE to protect your daughter. I cannot imagine what effect this is having on her. It would be bad enough for a child without a disability and because your daughter has Autism, her perception of events is so much more pronounced. Her ability to deal with stress is mostly nill, in most cases. PLEASE!! Call DHS in the city where she lives. They will do an investigation...it will only take 24 hours. That's it! You can let them know that you are willing to take her to your home if that is necessary. Tell them everything you can think of....write it all down before you call them so you don't forget anything. They don't like to be called back with, "I forgot to tell you something". It looks like your nit picking. You can also get an attorney in the city and state where your daughter resides and start custody proceedings. If you two have joint custody and she has physical custody, depending on the laws in her state, you have as much right to the child as she does. That is, if she came to visit and you chose not to return her, her Mom would have the burden of getting her back. You can google the state and then enter statutes on child custody'. I worked for many years with families through DHS and I can almost guarantee you that they not allow her to stay with her Mom at this time. Now, I have a question for you. How much of your child support money do you think goes for the actual care of your daughter? You're absolutely right!!! Very little if any!! Calling DHS is a very easy thing to do. Just pick up that phone and take care of your daughter. She REALLY needs you for goodness sake!! Good luck!! JOSA
What Kinds Of Law...?
What Kinds Of Law Are There? Also, If A Lawyer Defends Elderly Citizens (Especially In Cases Like Elder Abuse), What Kind Of Law Is That?
Other fields of law (as noted in the Department of Labor Occupational Outlook Handbook http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos053.htm include:
Lawyers may specialize in a number of areas, such as bankruptcy, probate, international, elder, or environmental law. Those specializing in environmental law, for example, may represent interest groups, waste disposal companies, or construction firms in their dealings with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and other Federal and State agencies. These lawyers help clients prepare and file for licenses and applications for approval before certain activities may occur. Some lawyers specialize in the growing field of intellectual property, helping to protect clients’ claims to copyrights, artwork under contract, product designs, and computer programs. Other lawyers advise insurance companies about the legality of insurance transactions, guiding the company in writing insurance policies to conform to the law and to protect the companies from unwarranted claims. When claims are filed against insurance companies, these attorneys review the claims and represent the companies in court.
Most lawyers are in private practice, concentrating on criminal or civil law. In criminal law, lawyers represent individuals who have been charged with crimes and argue their cases in courts of law. Attorneys dealing with civil law assist clients with litigation, wills, trusts, contracts, mortgages, titles, and leases. Other lawyers handle only public-interest cases—civil or criminal—concentrating on particular causes and choosing cases that might have an impact on the way law is applied. Lawyers are sometimes employed full time by a single client. If the client is a corporation, the lawyer is known as “house counsel” and usually advises the company concerning legal issues related to its business activities. These issues might involve patents, government regulations, contracts with other companies, property interests, or collective bargaining agreements with unions.
A significant number of attorneys are employed at the various levels of government. Some work for State attorneys general, prosecutors, and public defenders in criminal courts. At the Federal level, attorneys investigate cases for the U.S. Department of Justice and other agencies. Government lawyers also help develop programs, draft and interpret laws and legislation, establish enforcement procedures, and argue civil and criminal cases on behalf of the government.
Other lawyers work for legal aid societies—private, nonprofit organizations established to serve disadvantaged people. These lawyers generally handle civil, rather than criminal, cases.
Is Law School Just For Becoming A Lawyer? Other Options?
This May Be A Really Dumb Question, But...
I Just Started College And I Am Considering Maybe Law School After, If I Do Well On The Lsat. I Am Interested In Law, Human Rights, Criminal Justice, Ect. But, I Was Just Wondering If There'S Any Other Careers Besides A Lawyer Or A Judge, In The Criminal Justice Field That Might Benefit Me From Going Into Law School?
That's not a stupid question.
Law school is a type of professional school, sort of like business school or medical school, that's designed to set you on a certain career path. If you attend medical school, you're working toward being a doctor. If you attend business school, you probably want to end up working in some business capacity - as an executive or even an entrepreneur. If you attend law school, you're working toward being a lawyer.
That being said, people use their JDs for many other types of jobs. The question, though, isn't whether you can do something else with your JD, but whether your JD would actually help you do something else besides being a lawyer/judge. The answer is not really. In some situations, a JD will price you out of the market. Employers will wonder why you're not a lawyer and will worry that you're a flight risk. They'll think you're overqualified, as well. In other cases, I've heard of executives having JDs or JD/MBAs, but I get the impression that they're not all that beneficial. You could, of course, teach with a JD, but it's not as competitive as other types of advanced degrees unless you want to teach law.
In general, I would advise people not to go to law school if they know from the outset that they have no interest in being a lawyer. The reason is that law school is a very expensive way to get an education. It's not as flexible as a master's or a PhD and there's not as much applicability to other careers as there would be with an MA/PhD. There's no rule that you can't transition to other careers with a JD, but most other types of careers aren't looking for JDs, either.
If you want to keep your options open, try to get into a PhD program. If you want to work in human rights law or some kind of public interest law, then consider law school.
