Ask the Atty,

I was injured in an accident in June of this year and while I was on my way to physical therapy, a car broadsided me, breaking my wrist and re-aggravating my injured back.

It's a whole different injury from the first accident.

Should I quickly settle my first accident or just focus on my new injuries?

Please help!
