An Example of Lawyer`s Work in Claiming Traffic Accidents` Compensations

Being a lawyer, I was delegated with a case involving the injury of my client because of a traffic accident. The court ruled that she gets a compensation; part of which is to be paid by the insurance company and the rest-jointly and severally-by the car`s owner and driver. However, the owner suggested covering the whole amount under the condition that I carry on with the case to the end and give him back whatever amounts I manage to collect through court. It is worth pointing out that the owner has the right to claim that compensation from the driver. What is the ruling on my doing so?

An Employee Claiming a Compensation for an Accident during Work

I drive a wheeled-excavator, and one day the company I work for sent me to the digging site in one of its buses. Due to the recklessness of the driver, we had an accident. As a result, I sustained back injury, and stopped working. The problem is that the bus wasn`t licensed and the company hadn`t registered me under the social security. Do I have the right to claim a compensation for the harm inflicted upon me because of the accident? Who should pay the compensation: the bus driver or the company? Do I have the right to claim my salary for the period I stopped working?

Person Causing Damage is Obliged to Offer Compensation

After I had a car accident, I sustained an acute right hand injury : torn tendons, fracture and skin mutilation at the elbow joint. By law, I`m entitled to receive compensation from the driver, the insurance company and the car owner. However, I want nothing from the driver, but I will take whatever compensation I can get, by law, from the insurance company, and I`m planning to claim a compensation from the car`s owner as well because I was harmed both physically and psychologically. Is that permissible?
