    I recall reading some articles on the issues of gyms and child care standards. As I recall, there is no licensure required for such areas. Regardless of the licensure and inspections, the gym had a duty to provide a reasonably safe learning environment for the children. If items were left on the floor and the staff had the reasonable opportunity to pick up the items, then one could argue that the gym was negligence. Certainly, a parent should be timely notified of an incident and the information provided should be accurate; however, any delay or misinformation in notification typically is not the root cause of the injury. Furthermore, the resulting injuries and treatment are typically unaffected by the actions or inactions of the staff after the incident takes place.

    David’s Answer

    You certainly should consult with a personal injury attorney in your area as soon as possible. Crashes caused by pizza delivery drivers can be quite tricky. Many delivery drivers fail to tell their insurance carriers that they are using the vehicle for business purposes in delivering pizzas. This may, in turn, cause a problem with coverage. There are many other issues to deal with as well. Typically, a client will need a few months (at least) of medical care before the medical issues are properly diagnosed. Most attorneys will provide a free consultation and then handle the case on a contingency basis. Do not wait to contact an attorney. Good luck with your case.

    Certainly, your grandmother's medical care is paramount to all other concerns at this time. Seeing that it appears that she is getting the medical care needed, your gramdmother and / or the family should seek out legal counsel immediately. It is best to line up the attorney and refrain from giving any information to the insurance companies until an attorney is put in place to handle these matters. Good luck.

  • What if you hurt yourself before and it was healing and the accident caused it to bother you again

    If accident cause you to injure it again by the impact

    David’s Answer

    Many states allow for a claim for the aggravation of a pre-existing condition. The fact that you had problems before the accident may make the case more challenging to pursue; nonetheless, you should be able to pursue a claim for your injuries depending on the facts and circumstances. You should arrange for a free consultation with an attorney in your geographic area to discuss your rights and to discuss recommendations moving forward with a claim or a case. Good luck.

  • My lawyer hasn't contacted me in three months, should I fire him? Is my dog bite case taking too long to settle?

    -July 2013 a pit-bull ran out of a yard and bit my nose, slicing it in half, resulting in a permanent scar, and nine two inch needle shots deep in my nose for two and a half hours of plastic surgery -I hired a lawyer. -He filed a lawsuit. Has s...

    David’s Answer

    I recommend that you remain patient on this matter. I recommend that you set up a phone conference with the attorney through his legal assistant. It sounds like the dog owner has been non-responsive and that there is no homeowner's insurance on this matter. I commend the attorney for taking on the case especially due to the high risk of uncollectibility. That is why I would recommend that you remain patient and do your best to continue to work with this attorney. Good luck.

  • Can I sue for my toddler's injury at Car Wash?

    We were at the car wash yesterday when my 2 yr old toddler slipped/fell and struck his forehead a a concrete cinderblock wall at the local car wash. Could I sue for his injuries? He has a huge knot and bruise on his forehead now and keeps complain...

    David’s Answer

    Generally, a business like a car wash is responsible for maintaining a reasonably safe environment for visitors including children. However, a business is not an absolute guarantor regarding all injuries or incidents. In other words, just because a person is injured while visiting a property or business, that does not mean that the business or property owner is liable. In most instances, it must be shown that the area at issue was improperly maintained or supervised. It should also be noted that parents have a responsbility to monitor their children while visiting an area. Each case must be evaluted on its own facts and circumstances. Any time that a child is injured - it is most unfortunate. If the incident could have been avoided with reasonable efforts and care on the part of the property owner, there may be a case to pursue. If the incident falls under the category that "accidents happen", then it may not be the right case to pursue for the parents or by an attorney. Definitely, consult with an attorney about your rights and legal options before making any decisions regarding this matter. I wish you all the best in the future.

  • My daughter was injured at athletic practice and the school insurance will only cover $500, the bills totaled $7100, can i sue ?

    The accident happened on school property and the students were doing dangerous "stunts" without proper supervision.

    David’s Answer

    If the incident took place at a public school, there may be some hurdles or even roadblocks to deal with to pursue a case. You should consult with a personal injury lawyer in or near your area. It is most unfortunate that a child was injured due to improper supervision.

  • What legal action can I take as my son got hurt in head at Lowe's playground by a hammer head due to negligence

    Hi, We went to a Lowe's store indoor playground and my 4-year old son got hurt (badly) in his head as they kept a hammer with loose head in the table which another older boy was holding and waving when the incident happened. The hammer head slide...

    David’s Answer

    It is unfortunate that your son was injured at Lowe's. Like other businesses, Lowe's had a duty to provide a reasonably safe environment for visitors, customers, and guests. Since Lowe's invited children into the store to use the indoor playground, the duty extended to children in the indoor playground. As part of its duties and responsibilities, Lowe's had a duty to inspect playground equipment and tools / toys in and around the playground. One could argue that Lowe's knew or should have known about the faulty hammer OR that Lowe's failed to reasonably or timely inspect the hammer to prevent these type of incidents OR that Lowe's should not have had the hammer around at all near 4 year olds. As for the injuries, each case should be evaluted on its own merits. The value of the case is based on a number of factors including the seriousness of the injuries, visibility of the injuries - currently and in the future, the amount of medical bills, etc. . . . I recommend that you speak to an attorney to get some guidance on this matter before you have any further discussions with Lowe's.

    David’s Answer

    You asked some excellent questions. Do lawyers "know" "exactly" what a case is worth? I highlighted the words "know" and "exactly" because these are loaded terms. Lawyers advise clients and can provide opinions as to the estimated value of case once coverage information is obtained and treatment is completed. Lawyers are not fortune tellers or guarantors of a result on any particular case. There are many excellent lawyers in the field of personal injury who can share with you their experience with similar cases and inform you of results on other cases. However, it should be pointed out there can and should never be a guarantee of any result whether it is one offered by an insurance company or one awarded by a judge or jury. If you have a lawyer, sit down with your lawyer to get his or her opinions on the case. In most cases, there are good parts to the case and bad parts to the case. Furthermore, most cases can be defended by the Defendand and / or insurance copmpany who will provide experts to counter your experts. Again, you asked good questions; however, if you are seeking any guarantees or certainty, do not be disappointed if the lawyer cannot provide you these things. Good luck with your case.

    The lawyer is on a contingency fee. He or she will collect a percentage of what you collect not necessarily what you may be awarded. Sit down with the attorney you hired to discuss further. Good luck with your case.
