Q: I had a slip and fall in the mall, why isn't the insurance company not releasing the videos to my attorney unless he sues?
A: Cedulie is right. Insurance companies just don't produce evidence, even when it helps them. If the video helps you, then you would have ammunition to attract a personal injury lawyer to your case. Many injured people just give up and go away. The insurance companies bank on this to keep their claims down.
Q: Yaz injuries, can i use my lawyer for lawsuit
A: Of course you can hire any lawyer in your jurisdiction to handle your Yaz claim.
Q: Can an additional person be added to a complaint after the statute of limitation has run?
A: There are exceptions - fraud is the big one. But I think plaintiff is going to have a hard time maintaining a case against your wife.
Q: In a title 13 trust case how does the minor recover the money when she turns 18?
A: I'm not sure I entirely understand your question. The money becomes available to the minor when they turn 18 under the statute. They go to the bank and assume control of the money.
Q: If my father has a perscription for darvocet,and father gives son some for pain and isuffer after,can i b compensate
A: This cases are a challenge in the first place for a lot of reason. Certainly, the fact that you were not prescribed the medication is going to create an additional significant hurdle to your chances of recovery.
Q: My father passed away from lung cancer. How long does it take for a wrongful death case?
A: I have to give you the standard lawyer answer: it is hard to say. In the fast majority of cancer cases, you are going to need to file a lawsuit to get a recovery. So, and I'm sorry, it really depends on the facts of the case, who you believe is liable, how strong the case is, and so forth.
Q: My husband was inrjured years ago. The case was settled. We just found out has residual damage. Can a new case start now
A: It depends on the type of case. There are some types of claims that can be left open but there are generally not classic liability cases. In those, a release is full, final and forever. The best thing to do would be to call a New York lawyer, tell them the type of case, and you should get an answer real quick.
Q: What are the chances of a pfizer chantix settlement offer
A: It really depends on the type of Chantix case. I believe the cases with real value are the suicide cases. The new data on the heart attack or diabetes cases is not good and I don't think many lawyers are taking these cases.
Q: I need to know who should pay for my medical expenses after an accident in a giant food store
A: These are uphill cases to say the least. But one quick piece of advice unrelated to the merits of your claim: ask the store if their insurance policy has med pay. Their may be some insurance available to you by the mere occurrence of the accident on their premises (basically no-fault insurance that will not impact you liability claim)
