    It is hard to say without more facts how long it would take for your medical malpractice case to either settle or be scheduled for trial. Your lawyer will likely be able do push the matter forward to a certain extent, but hearings, etc. can often be delayed. Cases can sometimes take longer than two years to reach a final resolution. You should speak with your lawyer about this issue. If you do not already have a lawyer, you should consult with an attorney who has medical malpractice...

    Loss of consortium claims are typically claimed by the uninjured spouse in tort cases. They are most typically in reference to the loss of normal marital relations, including the loss of sexual intercourse. The uninjured spouse can claim these, and they are usually joined along with the injured spouses' claims. The individual making this claim is alleging that because of some injury caused by the defendant, their spouse cannot participate in sexual relations for some period of time or...

    This sounds like a question you should be asking to a doctor. Also, it seems from your description that you are responsible for your own injury, so I do not believe there is anyone you would be able to recover from.

    Based on the limited information you presented in your question, I would suggest you contact an attorney immediately to discuss a potential case. There are many attorneys that specialize in asbestos and mold cases in the Pittsburgh area. It would make sense to sit down with an attorney to discuss more of the specifics of your situation.

    Unfortunately it is hard to provide you with a complete response based on the limited information presented. If the injectables were manufactured by a separate company (and were only sold by this individual and their company), your claim could very well be against the company. If they were manufactured by the company owned by this individual, your claim would be against this company and maybe also the individual. More information would be necessary to determine liability. As far as the...

    You should speak with an attorney right away. If you already have an attorney handling your divorce, you should speak with him or her about your situation first, and they may be able to provide you with some answers, or at least an attorney to contact. Good luck.

    You should have a thorough title search done on the property, which would research the total amount of delinquent taxes for the property. You would be responsible for paying off these taxes (generally). Good luck.

    I am sorry to hear about your injuries. Based on the facts you have provided, you may have a case. Any accident reports that were filed, your statement to the insurance company, as well as any medical records relating to your injuries would all need to be reviewed. You should speak with an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible. Good luck.

    You should look to the actual release you signed to see if there is any language specifying a time frame for payment. More than sixty days does seem like a long time, but there may be language in the release allowing the party making the party this much time or longer. Also, if you had an attorney for this matter you should follow up with that individual. Good luck.

    Your question is a little bit unclear. If you are asking whether or not you can get money from the settlement in advance to help support him now, there are various legal settlement loan companies out there. I would strongly weigh this option before obtaining one of these loans, because the interest rates are very high, if you qualify at all. You should discuss these options with your attorney.
