    A driver turned right in front of me few weeks ago. I was going 66mph according to the GPS. I totalled the guys truck out and the package car. Other guys fault. Dallas safety committee RULED AS UNAVOIDABLE!! The crash hurt my knee and broke vertebrates in my upper back. Been out since. Liberty mutual says they will not give me more than 4.5 hours a day and I will not get anymore even after I'm back to work. So why am I losing $ ? Will liberty mutual give me a settlement? Don't need oppions ladies and gentlemen. Please only facts thank you god bless you

    OK. The fact is you don't ask a bunch of anonymous people on the internet for "only facts" about something this important. See a LAWYER, dude.

    Do as the others have suggested and get yourself an attorney. You will need compensation for lost time out of work, your injuries, and future lost income in case you are unable to work in the future.

    You have a suit against the other party, and workman's comp. Lawyer up. You have severe, lifetime pain and suffering.

    Seriously? Amazing people create posts, asking an internet forum for facts on life changing job and health issues right after reading the current posts of “Where do I buy UPS socks” and “Where have all the good looking girls gone?”

    Dracula Package Car is cake compared to this...

    Hopefully for you, the speed limit was 70, and not 65MPH.

    Read much? The accident was ruled to be Unavoidable.

    Hopefully his case is closed. In feeders, if you get in an accident one mile an hour over the speed limit, you're toast.

    I don't think it matters, as long as the # is within a reasonable distance that could be considered gauge error. An attorney (a good one anyway) should be able to argue and win that point.

    Ypu should be in contact with your local union. They should be helping with these questions
