    Arthur’s Answer

    Your attorney cannot disburse funds to u without the liens taken care of. While technically, u could negotiate the bills, most of the time u wil be better off letting your atty handle this.

  • How long can a store hold my video or my accident from my lawyers

    I had a slip and fall at Walgreens while I was pregnant there were no wet floor signs at all . They said it was my fault but refuse to send the video . My lawyers haven't really said anything only that they are waiting in the video and it's been o...

    Arthur’s Answer

    If there is a suit on file, yor attys can compel Walgreens to produce the video. If there is no lawsuit, there is nothing that can reasonably be done to get the video. Based on your question, I suspect suit has not yet been filed. If that is the case, you should ask your attorneys if and when they intend to file suit on your case.

    Arthur’s Answer

    I agree with my colleagues that you may want to consult with another lawyer. I would add that while you are still with your lawyer, you should listen to and heed his or her advice. No one understands your case like your current lawyer. Get facts as to any issues in the medical records that cut against you. Often, there is a big gap between what patients here their doctors tell them about the injuries and what is actually reported in the medical records or what a medical provider may tell an attorney. A good attorney will give you an honest assessment and tell you things you may not want to hear.

    Arthur’s Answer

    You hav to split bc there is only 20k available for all of you. Hopefully you purchased underinsured motorist coverage. If so, and your damages are greater than the amount you receive, u can proceed with a claim under your own insurance. Best if luck.

  • How can I prove a doctor screwed my back problem of more?

    I have had a degenerate disc in my lower back L4 & L5 for 11 years. In 2012, my back had gone out after a good 4 years of no pain, because I had injection. I notices about a month later it was different pain going down my left leg. I found out ...

    Arthur’s Answer

    As someone who has had 3 back surgeries, I certainly can relate with your pain. For your health , you need to consult with a neurosurgeon or Orthopaedic surgeon specializing in backs. Based on assessment of qualified physician, a med-mal attorney could assess whether or not you had a case.

    If u are in the Atlanta area, call me and I will recommend some doctors.

    I got a manicure last Saturday. Almost immediately, my index finger on my right hand started swelling and throbbing. Monday, I found a doctor and went in with no appointment because it was swollen and hurt so bad - 3 hours. They diagnosed me wi...

    Arthur’s Answer

    Probably not. The cost of proving the nail salon caused your injury is likely greater than your damages. Thus it is not likely to be a viable case

    Arthur’s Answer

    Banks and other premises owners are not responsible for every injury that occurs on their property. They do have a duty to take reasonable precautions to keep their premises reasonably safe. Typically, this means that they have to make sure that the premises is free from hazard that they had knowledge of or should have had knowledge of but you as a customer would not have seen even exercising reasonable care. The viability of your case will be very fact specific since black ice is difficult to detect. I advise you consult an experienced personal injury lawyer.

    I concur with my colleagues. To have the most productive conversation with a trademark attorney, compile the evidence of actual confusion with your customers with as much specificity as possible. Also create a timeline of events.

  • (Please read details first) Am I wrong to think they infringed on my trademark rights?

    Arthur’s Answer

    You have limited trademark rights until you actually make use of the mark in interstate commerce; i.e. have your website up and running and actively sell goods/services on the site under the mark. Once you do your use may relate back to the date you filed your TM application (assuming it is ultimately issued).

    Their priority will be limited to the geographic areas they penetrated. This will be a highly specific inquiry. You need an experienced trademark litigation attorney.
