    The issue would be whether the nerve damage that resulted was a known and accepted risk of the surgical procedure you underwent. These types of claims should be investigated quickly, because there is a lot of pre-suit ground-work that needs to be done to (1) establish whether a claim exists and (2) in preparation of a complaint if a claim exists. Our office routinely handles complex medical malpractice cases, and I would be happy to speak with you personally about your claim in more detail....

    I am assuming from the way you structured your question that the "12k fair settlement" you received was for the property damage that your vehicle sustained..... That being said, the issues surrounding whether and the extent to which you can make a recovery for pain and suffering, medical bills and/or wage loss is complicated and depends upon many different factors.

    You should send a copy of the lawsuit to your mother in law's car insurance company immediately. If you were a permissive insured driver as defined under that insurance policy, then the insurance company will retain and pay for a lawyer to represent you.

    If you have uninsured motorists coverage on your personal automobile insurance policy, then you can obtain coverage from your own carrier, even though the individual that struck you was uninsured. However, it is important to put your insurance carrier on notice of the potential claim as quickly as possible. If you were injured in the accident, you may have the ability to recover pain and suffering as a result. Our office routinely handles many types of automobile accident cases and...

    You may have a claim against the medical device company that manufactured the screws that broke, on the basis that there was some manner of defect that caused the screws to fail in their intended purpose. Depending upon the facts of the surgery, it is also possible that the surgeon who performed your surgery in September 2011 improperly inserted and/or attached the screws, which led to the them breaking. You should gather up all of your medical records from both your Sept. 2011 surgery...

    Under PA law, if the alleged malpractice occurred in New Orleans, then Pennsylvania courts do not have jurisdiction over the claim. You would have to file a lawsuit in Louisiana. I would suggest contacting a medical malpractice attorney in the New Orleans area for a consultation.
