    It is a little too early to tell if you have a viable case. The facts so far at least warrant more investigation because there are certain situations where liability may attach for negligence in placing an IV. You should consult with an attorney who can talk to you about the process of evaluating a med mal case and whether you truly have something to pursue. I am sorry for what happened to you and hopefully you heal so and don't have any residual effect.

    There may be a potential claim here, but you should consult with an attorney to discuss this in detail to determine if there is something to pursue. I would advise you contact someone as soon as possible as there is a 90 day time frame to place a municipality on notice of a claim. As you are beyond the 90 days, an application to file a late notice of claim will be necessary. This assumes it was a municipality that was responsible for the concrete barrier. If the accident happened on private...

    There are a number of different hip replacement devices which are the subject of products liability lawsuits for being defective. As a result additional information is needed about your situation to help determine if you have a viable case. There are specific time limits on your ability to bring a claim depending on your situation so I would advise you consult with an attorney as soon as possible.

    You may have a claim for personal injury but it will depend on the facts surrounding how you broke your ankle. The statute of limitations is typically 3 years but if your accident happened at a public school there is a 90 day notice requirement and a 1 year and 90 day statute of limitations. You need to consult with an attorney immediately to determine if you have a case.

    There are two parts to every personal injury lawsuit, negligence and damages. In your scenario, without more details, it appears that you may have a claim. Negligence for a slip and fall accident requires that the accident be the result of a dangerous or defective condition on the property, the property owner knew, or should have known of the condition, and the condition was the cause of the accident. Slip and fall cases in Western New York are difficult, but the first question for you to...

    You have 3 years to bring a negligence claim against your neighbor. In your situation you will need to establish your neighbor knew, or should have known, about the icy condition and failed to remedy it. The issues of how long the ice existed, where it was located an what type of weather was happening at the time of the accident will come into play. I would advise you contact a personal injury attorney in your area as soon as possible to discuss your options and how to proceed.
