Q. My wife died 2-07-10.she had an un settled claim from a vehicle accident.the claim settled in 03-2010.i opted not to be
A: If you were married, and your wife was killed in an accident, and there was a recovery for her death, then you are entitled to a portion of that recovery. If she died without having a will, then the proceeds of the settlement would be distributed under the NC Intestate Succession Act. If the attorney who has the money refuses to give you your share, then you should consult with another attorney to help you get what you deserve. You could also contact the NC State Bar and seek their help.
Q. I cut my finger on a metal napkin-holder. Starbucks apologized, gave me a 'gift card,' but I needed stitches. Can I sue?
A: You can always sue, but the bigger question is should you? In this situation, you would most likely see a defense raised by Starbucks called Contributory Negligence. This means that they would likely claim you were negligent yourself in some small amount. In NC, if a jury finds any contributory negligence by the injured person, then there is no recovery for the injury. This is a harsh rule for injured persons. Since I do not know the exact way that you cut your finger, I can not accurately comment on your chances of making a recovery. You can always make a claim with Starbucks' insurance company to see if they will voluntarily pay you for your medical bills and perhaps an amount for your pain and suffering. If they refuse, then you should consult with a personal injury attorney.
Q. How can I find successful MRSA lawsuits in North Carolina?
A: You could contact the North Carolina Academy of Justice (919-832-1413). They track all medical malpractice / hospital negligence verdicts in NC. They should be able to provide you with a report and/or the name of an attorney who could get you the information you desire.
