  • Should I file a lawsuit?

    I had all four wisdom teeth extracted on October 4, 2012. I was sedated, but started to feel the pain when pulling the tooth on the bottom left side. I was given a shot in my gums to dull the pain. That was fine, but I am still numb 3 months after...

    Dental malpractice cases are a specialized type of medical malpractice cases which are in turn specialized forms of personal injury cases. While some attorneys handle all three types, you may be better served finding an experienced dental malpractice attorney. A good friend of mine had a very similar situation and i was able to refer him to a top flight dental malpractice attorney, even though he lived in California and I am in NY. He was an actor and the numbness hampered his ability to make a living and he recovered a very nice settlement. Several of my college teammates practice in Texas so if you would like help finding the right lawyer please feel free to call. 1-800-535-5029.

    I think you should get out in front of it and call your insurance company and let them know you have been falsely accused of a car accident. That way if she does follow up you are on record first.

    You need to report this to the gas station immediately in writing if possible because if you don't that tape will be erased, especially if it helps your claim. Then contact a local attorney.

  • My wife is a visiting nurse and got bit by a dog at one of her clients houses.

    The problem is the dog is owned by a couple that was staying with the homeowner while they found a place to live. Who is responsible for this? The homeowner I presume.?

    Neil’s Answer

    In New York, the home owners would be responsible as well as the dog owners, because they had it on their property. However, New York law also has what is sometimes referred to as the "one free bit rule" meaning that someone is only liable for a dog bite if the dog has bitten someone else, or has shown "vicious propensities" in the past. Contact a local attorney as the law differs from state to state.

  • How much can i sue the dentist office for holding my son down to pull two teeth and they broke his ankle?

    they did not pu him to sleep to pull the teeths and while they was holdin him down they broke his ankle and only wanting to pay doctor bills

    Neil’s Answer

    You shouldn't be doing this without an attorney. A broken ankle is a serious injury and you will never get your son the compensation he deserves without an attorney representing you.

    Was driving a company vehicle the person in front did not us signal to turn i hit them from behind in 2011 and now i just got a summons to go to court in 2013. Does the insurance company take care of the legale matters?

    Neil’s Answer

    In New York, car insurance travels with the car. This means that the owner's insurance covers the driver as long as the driver has permission to operate the vehicle. You should refer this to your employer.

    my 7 yr old daughter was hit by a car and I need some help I don't no what the law allows

    Neil’s Answer

    It sounds like you're being told the accident was not the driver's fault. You should not rely on this unless it is coming from at least 2 experienced personal injury attorneys. Get a legal opinion, and then get another one.

  • My brand new car (purchased 1/1/13) less than 700 miles has been in no fault accident, I am 8 months pregnant.

    Attorneys Adams and McCormick are correct. The most important issue is to attend to your health and that of your daughter. Then seek out an experienced personal injury attorney.
