    Anyone can sue . The question is twofold. One, whther the person bring suit can prove any degree of negligence. In New York one can be 50% or any degree at fault less then 100% and succeed in proving SOME fault. Two, the person suing has to demonstrate by medical proof that there exists what is called a "serious injury" as defined by law. So the issue is can she prove any degree of fault and a serious or qualifying injury. If she can prove a qualifing injury her recovery is diminished to the...

    It appears from what you are saying that the injuries which you describe may rise to a "serious injury' and qualify for a lawsuit. An attorney must review all of your medical record including test results. An attorney might want to obtain reports where a treating physician describes your limitations supported by objective findings. If you have unable to work for 90 days because of your injuries this will be used to support a lawsuit. You are well advised to consult with a lawyer experienced in...

    In New York when you bring a lawsuit you are not allowed to specify the amount sued for in an action arising from a car crash for personal injuries. After the lawsuit is started, defense counsel can ask for you to specify the amount you are claiming as damages. You can choose any amount deemed appropriate. The issue is how do you enforce a judgment, The answer is from the defendant's policy limits unless you pursue the responsible party's personal assets which is not an easy task. In addition,...

    For a lawsuit to be worthwhile in pursuing there ought be injuries of some significance and the ability to prove fault of the salon. You must show some defective condition which the salon by its owners or employees created which caused the fall or a condition causing the fall know to it or present for an amount of time that the condition causing the fall should have been known and corrected. I would endeavor to take a pic of what caused you to fall. As an example if the carpet was torn or not...

    In order to know whther you have a case you need to have an "expert" inspect the appliance. Do not get rid of it but retain it and any box and instructions you may have. These types of cases are very time intensive and expensive to litigate and unless you have a serious injury or some permanancy with perhaps unsightly scarring and an impairment of use of the arm, most experienced attorneys would not handle it. That said, to protect yourself consult with an attorney with expertise in area of...

    My first thought is that you spould be discussing this with your lawyer. If there is only one million in coverage then unless you enforce a Judgment obtained on a jury verdict on excess of 1 million against personal assets of the defendent you are stuck with the million except petrhaps and depending upon how the accident happened-that your attorney can demonstrate that the defendant's insurance carrier acted in "bad faith" in not offering the one million dollar policy limits. Bad faith is hard...

    New York law requires that the landlord either created the icy condition upon which you fell e.g. a recurrent condition, water entering onto the driveway from some defective condition of the building where you reside.e.g. a malfunctioning leader or gutter system and there are many other examples of the landlord creating or causing the icy condition. Alternatively, you can show that the landlord had actual notice of the ice and failed to treat or remove it or that the icy condition was upon...

    I would consult with an attorney. In New York your son would need to sustain what is known as a "serious injury"- an injury which satisfies a certain legal definition as set forth in the Insurance Law and as described by cases which interpret that law. Abrasions and contusions unless disfiguring would not generally qualify as a "serious injury" which would justify a law suit. However, you must monitor your son's medical condition. Get him examined by a doctor so that ALL of his symptoms and...

    Your new attorney will do whatever is needed to implement a change of attorney. You need not involve yourself other then to select a competent law firm experienced in personal injury matters. You have the right to change counsel at your discretion at any time. Interview your new counsel before entering into a new relationship and obtain recommendations from those you trust.
