Q: If my son received a knee injury during wrestling practice that took over 2 months to heal and still hurts. Can I sue?
A: It is difficult to sue a school under these circumstances. You could be facing numerous defenses such as sovereign immunity, assumption of risk and others. Do you feel that there was inadequate supervision? I suggest that you consult with an attorney in your area who has experience with lawsuits against schools.
Q: How soon do I get a check after a settlement has been reached?
A: You have not provided enough facts. However, if you were injured and settled your case with an insurance company, the first step is for the insurance company to send you a release to sign and return. Once that's done, a check should be sent to you. If you feel this is taking too long, call the insurance adjustor you dealt with and ask when you can expect to receive your check.
Q: My friends daughter was injured at school when an upset teacher threw a box of tissues at her, hitting her in the eye.
A: Please state your question.
Q: My son was punched at school. The boy who punched him was suspended. Will pressing charges against him make family pay?
A: How old was the boy who punched your son? Have you already called the police?
Q: Can a lawyers office change a final settlement statement after I have endorsed the check?
A: Let me answer your question with a question. Assume you discovered later on that your lawyer made an error and paid you less than you were entitled to. Do you think you're bound by the final settlement statement, or do you think your lawyer has to correct the error and pay you the additional amount?
Q: I reside in D.C. Does my personal injury claim have to be settled before the statute of limitations expires?
A: A case doesn't always settle. If it is not settled, a lawsuit will have to be filed before the statute of limitations runs. You will then eventually have a trial, unless the case settles after the lawsuit is filed. Sometimes, cases aren't settled until after the trial begins.
Q: My Lawyer wants to be dismissed from my personal injury case. What happens to my court case if my lawyer is dismissed
A: You have 2 options. Retain a substitute attorney or prepare to represent yourself in court.
Q: What happens after a entry of judgment?
A: Once a judgment is entered, the next step is to execute on the judgment. The execution process is the way to collect the money that was awarded. Depending on the amount of the judgment, an attorney should be retained to help with this.
Q: Buyer pays cash for property. Property appraises under purchase price. Is buyer still bound to purchase?
A: Yes, unless there is a contingency in the contract relating to the appraisal.
