  • Tripped and fell backwards at walmart over a 2wheeled board that was left half under a rack of clothes

    I think consultation with an attorney is what you need. As stated you will need to find out what the board was doing there, how long it had been there and when was the last time an employee had checked the area. I will tell you that Wal-Mart is difficult to deal with a lot of times so having an attorney will probably be beneficial to you.

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    The other lawyers are correct. You are not in a position to settle. You do not know what the extent of your injuries are or what medical treatment you will need or the cost. Remember once you settle the case is over and you can never go back and get any more money. You should consult with a WV attorney you does personal injury and car wrecks. One thing you need to find out is how much insurance is available to you. If the person that hit you only had minimum limits then you would need to explore other possible insurance coverage.

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    Sometimes the insurance company won't contact you until they talk to their insured about the wreck. I am sure the attorney will ask all the right questions and get to the bottom of the problem. You need to realize that most legal matters like this don't resolve quickly(except the property damage claim) so be prepared for that.
    Remember once you settle your claim it is over and you can't ever go back to get any additional money. So be patient and follow your doctors orders to try and get better.

  • I had a tooth extracted about 4 months ago. recently I had my teeth cleaned with xrays and they found a piece of root remaining

    now im going to have to have surgery to have the root removed. should I contact a lawyer

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    Whether you have a case depends on first whether there was any negligence by the dentist, second of all what kind of damages did you suffer. Were you having pain in the area, did you go to the doctor for any of the pain. The your surgery, is it going to fix whatever problem you have or are you going to have further problems because the root was left in.
    If your case is just that he left the root in, you had no problems and you are having surgery to take it out, then you are going to have a hard time finding a lawyer to take your case. malpractice cases are usually expensive to litigate so unless you have substantial damagers most lawyers won't take them.

    With that being said, after your surgery you should call a lawyer and get an opinion

  • I recently won a settlement against the insurance company of the apartment I rent. The roof fell on me.

    Do I have to pay taxes on the money I received? I am on SSI so I had no list wages

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    Normally in a personal injury case the award is not taxable. Not knowing the specifics of your settlement I would check with an account and your lawyer for advice.

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    If you haven't seen a doctor it's going to be tough to present a claim. Insurance companies want medical documentation of problems and juries want to see that you are actually hurt and seeing a doctor. I would go see a doctor as soon as possible, just to see what's wrong with you. If you have problem that can be treated and you will get better you should do that. Don't wait until it gets so bad that it can't be fixed.

    I was in an accident in which a gentleman went through a stop sign at a four way intersection, and I hit tboned him. I didnt have a stop sign. I was going 28 in a 25, and didnt see him for an SUV that was illegally parked at the side of the inters...

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    If you had the right of way, then the other guy should be at fault for running the stop sign. It sounds like the insurance company is doing what they can to try and pay as little as possible on your claim. While speed can be considered, I'm not sure how 3 mph has any bearing on someone else running a stop sign

    I'm looking for a trial ready lawfirm I have been out of work for 10 months due to injuries to my neck and lower back

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    In order to file a lawsuit someone other than you has to be negligent in causing your injury. I would suggest you contact a firm in your area and discuss the facts of the case with them to see if you have a viable case.
