    You may have a legal claim against the owner of the building and any parties responsible for maintaining the elevator. An investigation will have to be conducted to determine the cause or causes of the elevator malfunction in the circumstances presented. If it can be determined that one or more parties were at fault for the incident and your resulting injuries--both physical and emotional--you may be entitled to monetary compensation. You should consult with an attorney.

    The insurance company has no deadline to offer a settlement that is satisfactory to you. By contrast, the law imposes on you, the claimant, a deadline by which you must file a lawsuit against those legally responsible for your injuries--typically, this is the 2-year statute of limitations applicable to negligence claims. If you fail to institute a timely legal action, your right to obtain fair compensation for your injuries will be lost. I recommend that you consult immediately with an...

    Parties to a case have the right to "depose" third-party witnesses who may have information and knowledge relating to the case being litigated. A "deposition" is a question-and-answer session in which the attorneys representing the parties have an opportunity to question a witness, who provides sworn answers to those questions under oath. The questions and answers are recorded by a Court Reporter, who transcribes the deposition and a typewritten transcript of the questions and answers is...

    You should assert a claim under the uninsured motorist benefits provisions of your own insurance policy. Your own auto insurance policy provides you with coverage in the event you are involved in an accident with an uninsured driver and you suffer injuries or damages. Contact a personal injury attorney familiar with making uninsured motorist claims as soon as possible.

    Your grandson's parents or legal guardian(s) should consult with a Connecticut personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. Attorney Lundeen is correct that uninsured motorist coverage may exist in the event another resident of your household owns an insured vehicle, and that homeowner's insurance will not provide coverage for the subject incident. Attempting to identify the hit-and-run driver quickly is also crucial. Prompt consultation with a Connecticut personal injury attorney is very...

    Your right to assert a claim and bring a lawsuit against the operator of the tractor trailer does not depend on the extent of the injuries sustained. In other words, if you and your son were injured, you have the right to bring a legal claim, regardless of the seriousness of the injuries. You should consult with a Connecticut personal injury attorney.

    There is no such thing as an "average" settlement in a civil case. What a case is worth for settlement purposes depends on a number of factors, including the relative fault of the parties involved in the accident, the nature and extent of the injuries and damages suffered by individuals injured in the accident, and other factors. As for the unborn child, the legal question of whether an unborn child can recover money damages in connection with injuries sustained in an automobile accident has...

    The store could be liable for your mother's injuries. I recently handled a claim involving an elderly woman who walked into a glass wall adjacent to the front doors of a sporting facility. The claim was settled for money damages prior to trial. In Connecticut, every person or entity in control of property owes a business invitee, such as your mother a legal duty to use reasonable care to inspect and maintain the property and to make it reasonably safe, a duty to warn or guard visitors from...
