I see that no one has responded yet to your question. I don't practice in this area of the law, so let me suggest you contact an attorney in the Lawrenceville area to find out. You should be able to find a good general practice attorney in your local yellow pages under attorneys or perhaps online. I'm sorry I can't help you.
It's hard to blame you for feeling like this settlement offer isn't fair! Having said that, however, each claim/case is different. A number of different factors should be taken into account before deciding whether to settle a claim on your own or whether to meet with a lawyer to help you decide what you should do. Just because you hire a lawyer does not necessarily mean a lawsuit will ultimately be necessary, and filing a lawsuit does not automatically mean that a case will proceed to trial....
Why don't you try going to see another doctor immediately for another opinion on what might be going on with you physically? Do not wait. As for an attorney, contact one here in Macon if you do not have one in Warner Robins with whom you are comfortable. Try calling Tracey Dellacona. Her number would be available in the phone book or through information. She and/or other medical malpractice attorneys can evaluate your situation and guide you through the legal process, if you have a claim....
Since no one else has answered...
This is outside my area of practice, but you ask an excellent question. Let me suggest that you do a bit of online research for a lawyer in your area, including Jonesboro and Atlanta, with experience in contract law, warranties, that kind of thing and simply call and ask. You certainly don't want to stop upholding your end of this deal unless you know you can legally.
Good luck to you.
I do not practice in this area and do not know the answer. I suspect you need to file a separate petition for the name change, but you need to contact an attorney who works in this area of the law and find out for sure from him or her.
Good luck to you.
Look up an attorney in Jacksonville named Tod Eikner and call him. I don't know if he does work in this area of the law, and I'm pretty sure he doesn't, but he will know someone good who does. Tell him I told you to call. Good luck to you.
Call an attorney with a general practice in Gainesville where you live. Check your local phone book or look one up on the internet. You might need to pay someone a little something for help, but it sounds like you need it. Good luck.
