    Any reputable attorney should tell their client, at the very outset, that they are free at any time to retain new counsel.. While some attorneys may be hesitant to take on a client who already has representation, that shouldn't dissuade you from speaking with other counsel and exploring your options. Be upfront with any lawyer you speak to; tell them your situation and why you are not happy with your present counsel. The communications you have with prospective counsel are privileged, so...

    Everything Attorney Roswold wrote is correct. Two attorneys representing you in a personal injury action against different parties is the proverbial too many chefs in the kitchen. I would suggest that you have a sit down with your attorney to discuss the status of your claims and why she feels that pursuing the tort feasor (i.e. the person that injured you) isn't advisable. I don't know how you were injured, but if it is an auto accident, the tort feasor might have insurance under their...

    The short answer is, no. You need to sue the driver of the other vehicle. I am concerned that there might some confusion from your description of various coverages. If you were driving or in a vehicle at the time that you were injured, then your PIP should cover your medical bills and lost wages up to $8,000.00 (with some limitations on the medical bills depending on other available insurance). If you were a pedestrian, then the other driver's PIP would provide you the same amount of...

    There are too many unknowns to answer your question definitively. For example, was there some obstacle or hazard that the child tripped on and was injured? Based upon the scenario you lay out however, I think a Plaintiff's lawyer would have a difficult job making a case against you. I would report the incident to your home owner's insurance carrier. If the child's parents make a claim against you, the insurer will provide you a defense (i.e. attorney) and most likely indemnification if...

    Yes, if you were hurt as the result of the negligence of the airline (or its employee) you are entitled to be compensated for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and disability, if any. I would recommend that you contact an experienced personal injury lawyer admitted in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to discuss a possible claim against the airline. Most firms, like mine, will offer free consultations. Best of luck!

    I hope your father will be alright. Whether the driver was cited or not for hitting your father isn't the most important fact. If she had been cited, a jury would never hear that evidence anyway. Unless the police officer witnessed the accident himself, his testimony will likely be similarly limited. The most important facts will be those relayed by your father, the driver and any eye witnesses to the accident. The fact that your father was not in a crosswalk does not automatically mean...

    In Massachusetts the dog's owner is strictly liable if the dog bites another person. That means you don't have to prove fault or liability. If you can demonstrate that the dog bit you, then you are entitled to be compensated. In this instance it is a little more complicated because the dog was not owned by the homeowner, but by their guests. Whether you have a good claim against the homeowner will depend on a number of facts like how long the dog had been living in the house prior to the...

    I'm very sorry that your daughter was injured, I hope she is making a quick recovery. From your description, it sounds like the insurance company is denying liability (i.e. taking the position that it was your daughter's fault). This is not uncommon, especially if your daughter was seriously injured. A reputable personal injury attorney admitted in Massachusetts should provide you an in person consultation for no charge to discuss the facts surrounding your daughter's accident, the issues of...
