I fell & broke my foot. Went to ER and had x-ray. Was told it was sprained but radiologist would read it & let me know if he found anything. Heard nothing so I called the hospital 3 days later cause my foot was all bruised, swollen & badly deforme...
The question is can you show that the fracture happened before the misdiagnosis. Meaning in theory it is possible that you sprained your ankle, then suffered the fracture later. (Doubtful but possible). If you are sure that they missed the fracture, and it is obvious on x-rays, then you would be entitled to all medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering. The real question is what additional harm did you suffer by the delay in diagnosis? If you have a doctor opining that your future is worse now because of the delay than if they would have originally caught it, that will increase the value of the case significantly. I would definitely talk to a few lawyers. If they are offering money now, there is probably a missed or delayed diagnosis. Just remember once you settle, you can't come back later for more, so make sure you understand all of the issues and potential harm in the future. Good luck
Lehigh County Courthouse served the bank. The bank answered the questions. I need to get my money from the bank. How do I do that?
If the bank answered that there is above $300 in the account (the personal exemption amount) - then you can enter judgement against the bank for the excess up to your judgment amount potentially including costs and interest. You should contact the bank first and see if they will release the money first without having to enter judgment against them. Hopefully you can collect. Good Luck
We have been using a ten foot wide piece of land as a driveway for 27 years because it was listed as owner unknown on the survey map we got at closing. we have found it belongs to our neighbor but they say we can have it. we have blacktopped an...
That's easy. You need an easement agreement signed and recorded for the properties. You probably can find one online. Most Attorneys would charge about $500 plus recording fees.
The judge said i need a expert witness in my case,it is a psychiatrist,about how much would this cost?
You should be able to find one for about $150-$250 per hour. Try online in your hometown, or the yellow pages and just start calling. To have better luck, I would say similar to the following, "I am looking to retain an expert for litigation purposes, Can you please send me a fee schedule?" That should open some doors. Good luck.
We settle my case and I signed the papers for the check to be release to me. My lawyer office said the check would be here in 3 weeks but it has been 3 months and I have not gotten a call from them to let je know whats going on. I have called ever...
I would be patient and document the process. Hopefully, there is a justification for the delay. I would send a written request confirming your attempts to call and that there has been no response. If you still do not receive a response, your only option would be to report the actions to the better business bureau or to the PA disciplinary board. But that will not get you paid. I think documenting your frustration should resolve the issue. Good luck.

First and this is very important, you need to have someone write a preservation of evidence letter. This will help ensure that any important video evidence or other is secured. Second, I would look for ratings of attorneys on various websites (including avvo.com, lawyers.com, yp.com, and the like. Finding the best lawyer is really finding the lawyer that is going to devote their full time and resources to the best possible outcome of your case. Lawyers are great at signing up cases, but not all lawyers actually spend the time necessary to prosecute each case once the client is signed. I would interview several different lawyers and make a decision with who you feel most comfortable. Good luck.
I posted about a month ago regarding my son-in-law's attorney not filing yet on his behalf for the injuries that occurred from his car accident 1 yr ago. Well he finally did only to find out the the person who hit him died 6 mos ago. His attorney ...
Coverage should still apply. The caption of the case may need to be amended to reflect the estate of the defendant. If the defendant did not open an estate, then the plaintiff can petition to open the estate for purposes of this lawsuit. It should not be an issue or bar recovery, provided there was insurance, possible under-insurance coverage or the estate had assets. Best of Luck.

Typically your homeowners insurance is responsible unless the doctor's office was on notice of a dangerous condition and failed to take action.See question
Thanks for taking my questions. I was sued by Discover Bank ($6000). Now a writ if execution has been issued. Luckily they have not been able to find my bank account and have listed three other local banks. Questions: 1. Does this writ have an exp...
1. The writ must be served in 90 days or expires and can be reissued.
2. They are required to attempt it, but debtors can obviously make service difficult.
3. Only if the Plaintiff paid the extra money to levy on the vehicle.
4. Yes. You can always settle, though I am not sure it always makes sense in cases where a debtor is not worried about their credit or judgment proof.
A vehicle attempted to pass me on my left. The driver suddenly noticed she was now in the oncoming lane of traffic. Other vehicles were now approaching her. The driver of the striking vehicle panicked, and attempted to return to the proper lane...
We would still need more information. Age, job, loss of income, amount of medicals bills (past and future), seriousness of the cuts, scarring, impact on enjoyment of life, impact on future limitations to work, earn, hobbies, spend time with family etc etc etc - there are so many variables that can affect the value (location, jury pool, physical demeanor, personality, color of skin, family situation, and on and on and on - HOWEVER I will say, with providing those words of caution, pelvis fractures will often have serious future consequences. If liability is clear, I'd be reluctant to settle a pelvis fracture for less than $100K, and have settled them for as high as $500K - But without all of your specific facts, it would be very difficult for another attorney to value your case. Talk to your attorney and tell him your concerns, and keep asking questions until you understood the risks and rewards of any settlement. I would insist on an appropriate range or opinion by the attorney. Hope this helps.
