Legal Answers
86 Questions Answered

Q. Can a nursing home restrict family visits against a resident's will?
A: We are going to need a lot more details to answer this question.
Q. Can a lawyer sue for more than what was on the demand letter(that didn't settled)?
A: Yes. The demand does not limit a judge or jury's ability to award more. Lawsuits in Maryland no longer have an "ask for" amount. The only reason to set a limit is have the claim heard in a specific court.
Q. If I swerved to avoid hitting an animal before hitting another car am I still liable for the other driver's injuries?
A: No. If your actions were entirely reasonable under the circumstances, you are not responsible for the victim's injuries. To be help responsible, you have to do something that a reasonable, prudent driver would not have done.
Q. If my brother was hurt in an accident can I sue on his behalf?
A: Probably not. The only exception I can think of would be if a court finds him unable to handle his own affairs. If you are asking if you can serve as your brother's lawyer, the answer to that question would also be no... unless you happen to be a lawyer licensed in that jurisdiction.
Q. How does lawyer suppose to return my retainer?
A: I agree with what Paul said. It is certainly rare to pay someone a retainer in medical malpractice cases. The vast, vast majority of malpractice lawyers in Maryland (defined as regularly handling these cases) operates on a contingency fee.
Q. If a nurse gives you the wrong dose can you sue for malpractice?
A: Yes. But you need a significant injury to justify the expense of filing a medical malpractice claim.
Q. What it means when court can't find your claim #?
A: Who knows? What were you told the status of the case is? Did your lawyer say it was in suit? Do you have a copy of the Complaint? You can simply ask for it.
Q. If you are hurt in a hit and run accident can you still claim damages?
A: Yes. You can make a claim through your own car insurance company, assuming you have coverage. If you don't there may be other options (see my friend Andrew's response below).
Q. Do I need to file new expert report by a new expert witness?
A: I'm not sure exactly what you are asking. But, generally, your firing your lawyer would not alter the defendant's discovery obligations. Generally, discovery obligations are not mutual. You cannot fail to answer discovery saying that the other party did not answer some related discovery.
