    A case like this really depends on the facts. It is possible there could be liability on the mall under certain circumstances. If your husband sustained injuries and damages then it is worthwhile to speak to a personal injury attorney to see if you have a claim. Good luck.

If you are in a tough financial situation there are many companies which can assist you with a loan of money against the proceeds of your case to help you cover bills. However, I caution you to be careful in researching and agreeing to anything with those companies, as some are known to charge an exorbitant amount of interest on the loan. I have had client's utilize the services of companies which will...

    I advise my clients there case may take anywhere from two to five years to reach resolution.

I have had cases resolve the same day I was hired and I have had cases go through trial and an appeal taking 6 or 7 years to reach a resolution. Your health will also dictate where any potential settlement discussions go because you want to have the best picture of...

    Attorneys provide a service to clients, and just like any other business, you have the right to choose who work with and who you want to represent you. There is no additional expense in your situation to switch attorneys. So, if you are not happy, find someone who will appreciate your business and provide the type of service you expect.

    There are a number of details missing which will determine if you have a valid case. The first concern is whether or not the statute of limitations has passed. You should consult with an attorney as soon as possible about your ability to bring a claim.
