Legal Answers
5 Questions Answered

Q. During lung surgery surgeon ruptured my breast implants. permanent damage involved to breast and lungs
A: Medical malpractice cases are probably the toughest cases to pursue. You really need to request all of your medical records and speak with a Medical Malpractice attorney about this.
Q. Is there any recourse for having an allergic reaction from an Absorbine Jr back patch, and then getting respiratory failure?
A: First thing first, you need to make sure that the patch contains what you are allergic to. You should probably see an allergist about this. If it does, then you need to make sure that nothing else could have caused the reaction, such as a food allergy. Second, you should look at the box to see if there are any warnings about possible allergic reactions to the contents of the patch. This is the first thing a products liability attorney would do. My advice, if you would like to pursue this, would be to get the ball rolling on these things and also contact a product liability attorney to see if any are interested. However, you should also know that some attorneys will not take cases when the injury was short lived and there was a full recovery.
Q. In a slip fall case at major grocerer, I did not seek a medical opinion for 2 ½-3 weeks while bedridden from the accident
A: Absolutely. This delay is not that significant, but it also depends upon what your doctor found when you finally did go.
Q. My lawyers are trying to persuade me to settle for less. Should I be concerned about this behavior?
A: It depends on how much less, but usually, no. The alternative is to not settle, which can result in receiving less than what is currently being offered or maybe nothing at all. The best advise if you are that concerned is to seek a second opinion regarding the value of your case.
Q. I fell on a "owner builder" job site and broke bones. does the owner of the building have any responsibility
A: The owner of the building may have responsibility depending upon the condition of the property that caused you to fall and where you were on the property at the time. More information is needed to fully answer this question.
