The question can't be answered with the information provided. The mere happening of an accident does not mean the hotel is liable. You will have to prove that it was the hotel's negligence that led to the accident and injury. I suggest contacting a personal injury attorney as soon as possible to discuss the hotel's potential of liability. Also, while it would be a gesture of good will, the hotel is under no obligation to provide a free room.
It is unlikely that the pedestrian accepted anything other than no-fault benefits from your insurance company. If she had in fact settled a bodily injury claim, the insurance company would have required that she sign a release which would be a complete defense to any attempted action at this point. Her action is likely timely. Turn over any papers you receive to your insurance company immediately and let them deal with the alleged release and any other issues. Just because they offered her...
If you have an attorney you should discuss it with him or her. It is not just a question of your injury but whether or not the store is liable for your injury. Unless the store had actual or constructive notice of the condition and were afforded a reasonable opportunity to correct it, it will be very difficult to prove they are responsible for your accident. If you don't have an attorney, consult with one to discuss liability and the value of your injuries.
6 weeks may be a bit optimistic but 10 months is too long. Send your lawyer a certified letter demanding an explanation and setting forth your attorney's lack of responsiveness. Indicate if you do not receive the information you are entitled to, you will make a formal complaint to the disciplinary committee. That should get his attention and get you some movement.
Yes although as the operator of an uninsured vehicle, you will not be entitled to an no-fault benefits. Your son should be able to get those benefits however. Don't drive uninsured. It's there to protect not only you but your passengers, pedestrians and other drivers.
This answer assumes you or the person who owned the car you were operating had insurance. Send the suit papers to the proper insurance company immediately for further handling. The carrier will assign you an attorney under the terms of the insurance policy. That's what you have insurance for. If you or the owner had no coverage, you need to consult with an attorney before doing anything but do it soon. You don't want to give the plaintiff the right to enter a default judgment against you.
Generally speaking, the statute of limitations for such a claim would be 3 years. This would change depending on whether we are talking about a private or municipal landlord. If the latter, the statute is much shorter. There are other factors to consider then just time however. Was the landlord given a reasonable opportunity to correct this particular icing condition? Do your injuries warrant going forward with a claim? Your best bet would be to consult with a personal injury attorney in...
It sounds as though you've done what needs to be done to this point. Since we have no information regarding liability or the full extent of your injuries, it would be best to consult with a personal injury attorney in your area. The decision to continue to pursue this on your own should only be made after such a consultation. Personal injury attorneys do not charge for a sit down so it would be worth your time.
There are some options for him but he really needs to consult with an attorney as soon as possible. It doesn't say when he was served and he may not want to risk default so he should attend to this right away.
