    The first question a lawyer will ask is what she fell on. Was there a liquid or something else on the escalator? There has to be a dangerous condition to have a case. You don't have a case if you fall because you are rushing. There is likely a Notice of Claim requirement that needs to be met within 90 days of the accident.

    He can be charged with petit larceny and criminal possession of stolen property in the fifth degree, He should hire a criminal defense lawyer ASAP. He should NOT speak to the police. It will be better for him if he gets a lawyer and surrenders to the police when the Judge considers whether to release him or set bail. If he avoids the police the DA may use that to seek higher bail.

    Your grandparents have a personal injury cliam against the woman. Hire a personal injury lawyer ASAP and do not speak to anyone about the case except the lawyer..... especially in the hospital..... insurance companies often send reps to try and get statements.

    Every case is different. Did your lawyer attempt to reach a settlement before filing a lawsuit? That can take months. Once the case is put in suit, it can take several years to get through discovery and through the various court pre-trial conferences before getting a trial date.

    It depends on the liability and your prognosis. It's a six figure injury. The carrier will likely take advantage of you if you don't have a personal injury lawyer.

    This is standard practice. The check will be for the amoun in the release you signed. You will get a little less than 2/3 of that amount -- disbursements come off the top. Your lawyer will give you a closing statement that explains where the money went. Your portion is tax free.

    Are you covered by workers compensation? That is the first thing to figure out. Contact a lawyer asap. If you are not covered by workers compensation you need to submit a no-fault insurance claim to his auto insurance carrier within 30 days of the accident to get your medical bills and any lost wages paid.

    New York does not expunge and DWAI convictions do not seal ..... they will always show up on a background search.

    Ask if the hotel had medical payment insurance coverage. This covers bills regardless of whether the hotel was negligent. In order to sue you will need to prove the hotel had actual or constructive notice of the screw. That probably will come down to what the screw is for, where it was and when the room was last cleaned before the accident.
