    Jeena’s Answer

    You may have a case for failure to properly diagnose, however, the only way to know for sure is to discuss all of the facts with a medical malpractice plaintiff lawyer. The consultation should be free, no matter who who choose.
    Good luck and I hope your daughter is doing better.

    i went to a hair salon yesterday and they bleached all my hair, after i was done i went home and tried combing my hair out as i was combing my hair it hurt and i also felt like scabs on my scalp also part of my hair is stuck to my scalp im scared ...

    Jeena’s Answer

    Did you go to the hospital or dermatologist in order to obtain a diagnosis and prognosis? I would start there. You don't want the burns to get worse and you may need to treat them. In the meantime, did the salon perform a patch test before they bleached? There are good personal injury lawyers in Staten Island who will speak to you during a free consultation. Please go seek one out.

    Feel better and best of luck!

    Consult with a local personal injury lawyer. Your son may have a claim against the commercial property owner for what is known as a "gravity-related injury". If your son is out of work, then disability may come into play as well.

  • Can an employer not give wage and hourly rate on nf6 form to insurance carrier from a no fault accident?

    my company states that my insurance company needs a subpoena to get wage information for a no fault accident.is this legal?

    Jeena’s Answer

    If you signed the section which releases your work loss information on your No Fault application for benefits, then the employer should provide wage and hourly rate to the no fault carrier. They do not need a subpoena. If you have a personal injury lawyer, bring this issue up and have him or her speak to your employer.

  • Can an insurance policy be rescinded and therefore deny coverage after filing a claim?

    Someone backed in to my car and gave me his insurance info. he also contacted the insurance and they contacted me as well to get my side of the story and also told me that the policy is under investigation. They now informed me that their investi...

    Jeena’s Answer

    There is a legal basis. You'd have to file what is called a declaratory judgment action for the court to declare that the denial is invalid. You would need to speak to a lawyer who would review the denial and all of the facts and circumstances to make a determination as to how successful you would be.

    Jeena’s Answer

    There are insurance regulations that control the handling of property damage claims, including timeframes companies have to make a claim determination. A lawyer versed in property damage insurance will be able to guide you. I also agree with the lawyer who answered previously who recommended you sue the owner/driver of the offending vehicle. That will make the insurance company act. If the defendant resides in Nassau or Suffolk County, and If the claim is under $ 5,000.00, you can file in small claims court.

    Jeena’s Answer

    You need to hire a qualified and experienced lawyer who knows how to handle New York State No-Fault disputes. That person will review all of the facts and correspondence from the insurance company with you and he or she will bring arbitration or a lawsuit against the insurer to settle the coverage dispute. If you were in an accident in New York State and a passenger in your friend's vehicle, it does not matter that you were on your friend's insurance policy - you would be entitled to receive No Fault benefits from the insurance company that covers your friend's vehicle.

    Jeena’s Answer

    If your surgeon took an assignment of No-Fault benefits, then the surgeon has no legal right to take a lien on your personal injury recovery. Have your lawyer obtain a copy of the assignment of benefits, if you signed one. If you did, any lien you may have signed is void.
