    The good samaritan law is there to protect the person helping, which he was. Not relieve other's responsibilities because he's helping

    Everyone involved should be insured. Somebodies insurance should cover it, it's just a matter of figuring out who's. Sometimes it needs to go to court to figure that out. Suing shouldn't be the first option, but it is an option. Nothing wrong with wanting to be covered if someone else screws up

    I'd talk to a personal injury lawyer. Avoid the ambulance chasers that start talking about suing right away. Find someone that can understand the entire situation. Sometimes all it takes is a few letters from a lawyer stating the facts for an insurance company to step up

    That’s what I’m saying her company should cover it since most likely my workers comp won’t and I’ll be out of work 2 months the woman works for a company hauling usps mail they can’t afford a couple months of my pay but her blowing me off after even verbally agreeeint to pay half my medical bills well this woman is going down a path that won’t end well

    I’m just
    suck it up.
    What kind of grown man can’t work over a single finger being broke.
    I’ve seen log cutters LOSE digits and be at work within a month.
