After filing a personal injury claim, you may want to know – “can my lawyer settle my case without me?” Your lawyer cannot settle your case without your permission. This is because it would breach his or her ethical and fiduciary responsibilities. Ultimately, as the client, you have the final say on whether to settle or go to trial. Your lawyer's role is to present you with all options, offer legal counsel, and make recommendations, but the decision rests with you.
If you get in a car accident that results in serious injury, you might wonder who pays for medical bills after a car accident. You are responsible for ensuring the bills are paid when you seek medical treatment. However, financial recovery is a combination of your funds, your health insurance, your auto insurance, the at-fault driver's insurance, and the at-fault driver themselves. This is particularly true if you hire an Illinois car accident attorney to assist with your claim.
There are many types of car accident injuries that victims suffer. These injuries range in severity, and heavily influence the value of a car accident claim. More severe injuries can increase a victim’s losses, and have a long-term effect on his or her life. It’s important to be aware of the impact of car accident injuries and what kind of compensation those injuries qualify for when starting a claim. 
If you were injured in a trucking accident in Chicago, Berwyn, Oak Lawn, Cicero, or a nearby community, call the injury attorneys at Lloyd Miller Law for a free consultation.

Athletes, Coaches, Parents-New Tool in the War Against Traumatic Brain Injury

Posted By:

Traumatic brain injury can result in a degenerative brain disease known as  Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE). We have written extensively on this site about the state of research and law aimed at the prevention, treatment and advocacy for victims of this debilitating condition.(see myaccidentlaw.com/blog keyword, brain injury, concussions, Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy).

Most victims of serious brain injuries are sustained upon impact or collision (as in a motor vehicle accident, especially motorcycle accidents or bicycle accidents) a fall from a bed (nursing home accidents) or as an athlete in a sport where tackling, checking or blocking are involved (think football or hockey).

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has implemented a new website designed to keep athletes and the public safe from concussions. The new website is beneficial to everyone but parents and coaches should pay special attention to the free online course designed to aid in the recognition and response to potential head injuries. The course offers a cerificate at course completion as proof of the individuals readiness to recognize the situations where brain concusions are likely to occur and the symptoms of any potential brain injuries.

Grazian and Volpe (now Lloyd Miller Law) cautions all clients and the general public that a concussion cannot be diagnosed without medical testing and that it may be hours or days after the injury before victims may experience or report symptoms. Knowledge and prompt attention are key to minimizing the medical impact of brain injury. Please share this site with any and all persons you know so that we can all help safeguard our families and loved ones: www.cdc.gov/concussion/HeadsUp/youth.html
