    Jonathan’s Answer

    Yes. You should contact and attorney immediately. The Doctor's response certainly sounds self-serving. Firms like ours will request medical records to review potential causes for your pain complaints and often refer that information to an objective medical expert for their opinion.

    Jonathan’s Answer

    I'm so sorry to hear about your mom. I'm sure it makes the holidays bitter sweet. The preliminary information you gave certainly sounds like there may be a case for a wrongful death/survivor action. Contact a lawyer to start working through all the considerations that go into possibly bringing such claims. Again, you have my sincere condolences.

    You really need to get an attorney involved sooner than later. There are many factors that go into evaluating a motor vehicle accident claim. A competent attorney will also make sure you are minimizing your out-of-pocket medical costs while preparing your case for a successful resolution.

  • I slipped in a puddle of water in a Walmart bathroom this morning

    I was unable to get up after falling and was taken to the hospital in an ambulance. The hospital did xrays and gave me prescriptions for pain medicine and muscle relaxants. I am in a lot of pain as I fell on my back. I have an appointment tomorrow...

    Jonathan’s Answer

    Yes, you certainly may have a valid claim against Walmart on a premise liability theory. I have on many occasions, brought claims against Walmart for similar incidents such as yours. It is unfortunate that a company as wealthy as Walmart so often undervalues its duty to maintain enough personnel to properly keep their premises free from hazards. This is not the case with every store, but seems to be a growing issue in many of their stores.
