Rear end accident
Ask a Lawyerwhat's this?
QuestionCountry: United States of America
i was in an auto accident (rear-ended by commercial large "u-haul" type truck). rendered unconscious-I honestly don't recall impact. driver insure 100% liable. ambulance to hosp, which is where I regai regained consciousness. tests included pulse, blood pressure, & a few questions. i had to convince the nurse/aide that there were pieces of glass in my scalp to get the glass removed. got home, my sis pulled w/tweezers at least 6 more pieces out (all bleeding). as well as glass in ears, down shirt/back, etc. diagnosis-minor abrasions. im still being treated for a myriad of problems resulting from this accident. i noticed when removing hosp id bracelet that it wasnt my name/dob. ive been advised that nothing can be done legally. seeking a legal professional's second opinion about this.
AnswerIt is certainly possible you have a case based on what you say here; you should take a brief description of these events as well as your medical records to a malpractice attorney and see if the attorney thinks you have a claim; often you need to contact several attorneys to find one to take the case; the review of your case and records is often free and then they will normally take the case on a contingency fee basis if they think you can win;you would pay only if they collect for you.
