    You may have a claim for negligent supervision. You should contact an attorney immediately because claims against school districts often have additional requirements that you provide notice within a certain period of time. If you fail to provide that notice, you may not be able to bring the claim.

    You may have several claims. If the school was no notice of a potential fight, but failed to properly supervise your son to prevent it, you may have a claim against the school. Likewise, if the school's failure to appropriately respond to your son's injuries increased his injuries, you may have a claim for that as well. Definitely, check with an attorney ASAP because claims against schools often have stricter requirements on giving notice and/or filing suit than regular cases.

    I am very sorry for yourr loss. You should contact an attorney immediately - preferably in the jurisdiction where your son passed away. Trazadone is known to cause muscle stiffness, including the penis, but the type of reaction your son had is unusual. Moreover, his death may also be related to his use of Trazadone, although that will probably be harder to relate. An attorney will have you obtain the medical records for his treatment and then review them with a qualified expert. Act...

    You should contact a new lawyer immediately. Wrongful death cases often have tighter deadlines than other negligence cases. Accordingly, delay can be far more harmful for wrongful death cases. In addition, these cases are more complex than other personal injury cases, so you do not want to attempt to handle it by yourself. A new attorney will be able to get the file from your current attorney and make sure they recieve little, if any, compensation for what they did.

    She should definitely hire an attorney before contacting them. An attorney will know what to say to them and what not to say to them and will know how best to respond to their questions. It sounds like she has a serious case worth pursuing.

    You should first review your insurance and the insurance of any resident-relative at that time to see if any other coverage may be available to pay for the damage. If there is no coverage, and if you are not able to make payments, the insurance company may seek to collect from you through garnishment of your wages or seizing any of your other assets. However, you may be able to avoid this through working out a payment plan or, if necessary, filing bankruptcy. The insurance company will...

    She should contact an attorney immediately. The driver responsible for the accident is responsible for all of her proximately related care, even if it is negligent and regardless of whether surgery is necessary or not. Moreover, a medical malpractice case may also be possible - the best thing to do, again, is contact an attorney immediately. I am available right now, if you would like to speak.

    You should be concerned. Your primary goal should be to immediately find out the status of the case. If the firm is considering obtaining an extension of the time to file - assuming that is appropriate and available - then it appears they believe your case has merit. Confirm this with them. If they do not put you at ease with their response, obtain a copy of your file - insist that this be done immediately - and bring your case immediately to a new attorney for an evaluation. As you are...

    Lawyers are held to a duty of honesty and candor wihen dealing with their clients. Rules differ in each jurisdiction as to when a lawyer needs the court's approval to withdraw. If you beleive your attorney did not act honestly or in your best interests, the best advice is to obtain a copy of his file and have it reviewed by another attorney who handles accident cases or legal malpractice cases. That attorney can confirm whether the first attorney was honest with you and, if not, whether...

    Legally, you are responsible for the damage you caused the other driver through your negligence. The other driver will be required to prove his damages, not just claim $2,500 in damages. Accordingly, the most you will be responsible for is the amount of the estimate (if repaired) or blue book value (if totaled) - assuming the other driver was not injured. To recover from you, the other driver must file a lawsuit against you within the statute of limitations and then prove that you were...
