I'm not sure where to go from here, do I need an attorney? Our medical bills are going to be crazy!
I am sorry to hear about your spouse's injury. First step is to get proper medical care, which it sounds like you are doing. Second step is to hire a lawyer who has had experience with escalator cases. You should sit down with a few lawyers and then hire the one you feel most comfortable with. You should do this quickly so that the lawyer can start investigating the case. From my experience the owners/operators of the escalators will try to hide the ball.See question

I WAS PULL OVER LEAVING MILITARY CLUB .I WAS CHARGED WITH LESS SAFE BECAUSE I WAS NOT DRUNK .THE OFFICER CHARGED ME BECAUSE I HAD A DRANK. WHEN I CHECK MY RECORD IT WAS NOT THE CHARGE THAT WAS WROTE ON THE TICKET LESS SAFE IT WAS DUI .
When it comes to being charged with DUI alcohol the two charges are "per-se" which means over the legal limit and "less safe" which means you drank enough alcohol to become a less safe driver. There is no "drunk driving" charge. From what you are saying your record is accurate as less safe is the same as DUI. If you were convicted it will remain on your record. If you were found not guilty or the charge was dismissed you may be able to have the charge restricted from your criminal history. I hope that answered your question.See question
I recently go arrested for shoplifting in Walmart. I went to jail and got out on an OR bond and have to appear In court on the 16 of November. I just got a letter today from Walmart saying I have to pay $150 for damages and they won't press charg...
Read the letter again. It doesn't say if you pay $150 then they won't press charges. It says if you pay $150 they won't pursue civil action. That letter has nothing to do with your criminal case. As Mr. Goldberg stated, you need to hire a lawyer.See question

Pending means your case is still going on and has not been resolved yet. It was bound over to State Court because Magistrate Court does not have the authority to hear and dispose of your case other than to issue a warrant for your arrest. Since you have not been formally charged yet, which happens in a misdemeanor case when an accusation is filed in court, now is the best time to hire a lawyer to try to get the case dismissed.See question
