        150 150 Clifford Horwitz

        Question:

        My brother was drinking and got drunk at his motel. Left there drunk and went to a bar where they served him for a few more hours, knowing he was already drunk. My brother left there, wrecked his car and was killed. I’m mad at the bar owners that would keep serving him, knowing the shape he was already in. I want to file suit. I loved my brother dearly and somebody is going to pay.

        How Do I Recover Continuing Medical Bills After an Accident?

        150 150 Clifford Horwitz

        Question:

        I am a cab driver. I was hit by a drunk driver in 2001. The State charged him for DUI but could not convict as blood report could not be opened because the nurse did not show up in court. I think he had DUI violation in the past too.

        My taxi was totalled. Insurance company paid for my vehicle, tax difference, loss of wages and loss of lease to my company. I recovered these myself even by going to court myself and fighting.

        I was taken to the hospital in an ambulance. I had severe pain in my neck, shoulder, head which subsided within hours. Nothing was found through X-rays.

        After few months I had severe pain again. I informed other insurance comapny. I went to one physiotherapist. He gave me approx 20 sessions. I still have pain, some type of kink in my neck. I could not go for MRI although doctor suggested. I have all the documentation.

        Now medical bills for approx $12K and pain and suffering to be recovered.

        The other driver had basic insurance coverage. My taxi had liability coverage for $350K, as per city law. I am scared about my old age. What can I do?

        Speeding Causes Accidents

        Speeding is a very dangerous form of reckless behavior, but it is often overshadowed by drunk and distracted driving. It’s important to raise awareness of the dangers of speeding to try to decrease the number of preventable car wrecks that occur each year on U.S. roadways.

        According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 9,900 people died in 2011 in speeding-related auto wrecks. That represents 31 percent of all car accident deaths that year.
