You should file a police report if you have not already done so. You should also notify your insurance company. And you should hire a lawyer. One challenge you may find is that hiring a lawyer may prove challenging if all you are seeking is property damage. But perhaps you there is enough damage to the car that it would warrant a lawyer getting involved.See question

You should retain an attorney immediately. You should not talk with her insurance company. Let your lawyer communicate for you. They can be very tricky in what they will ask you to try to hurt you again by preventing you from making a claim. Don't let them do that to you. Get a lawyer. Feel free to contact me if you want to discuss.See question

Yes. As a general rule, a driver needs to keep a safe clear distance. That distance needs to take into account speed, driving conditions, stopping distance. While the other cars may have contributed as well to causing the accident, a driver of a car will be held resopnsible for rear-ending a car in front of it, that has come to a stop due to traffic conditions.See question

As a general rule, I do not think you have a basis for a claim. As the driver behind them, you have a duty to maintain a safe clear distance from cars in front of you.See question

There are a number of things a lawyer will look at in evaluating whether the claim can prevail, and then one additional factor to determine if it is economically worthwhile for that lawyer to undertake representation. The factors include:
1 Duty of care - did the hospital owe a duty to provide proper care.
2 Breach of duty - did the hospital fail in providing the proper care
3 Factual causation (Direct Cause) - did that failure result in harm
4 Legal causation or remoteness - were any other factors responsible for that harm
5 Harm - What harm was caused
The additional consideration is economics for the firm bringin the lawsuit (and thus for the person who was harmed) that is how much harm was caused. Is there sufficeint damage caused by the breach to warrant the expense and time of filing a lawsuit.
I hope your son is well. If there is permanent harm and ongoing medical care needed, you should consult a lawyer.See question

Yes, this can be a case. In fact, our family has a close friend that pursued this type of matter. I have seen this sort of thing firsthand. I feel really bad for what you are going through. She went for many years before being properly diagnosed and the disease had progressed significantly as a result of the delay in diagnosis.
