    Retaining an attorney is the best way to ensure you get the most compensation. You don’t have to have an attorney to file a lawsuit, but the negligent parties (the doctors, hospitals, etc.) will have a team of lawyers defending them. It’s too much for any one person—you need a team approach. The lawsuit will be filed primarily on behalf of your father’s estate, so the consent of the administrator of the estate will be necessary. An attorney can help you get this setup. I am sorry for...

    Do you have uninsured motorist coverage? That would be the most obvious way to seek compensation for you injuries. As to your first question, you certainly can sue the driver personally. But whether that is a good idea will depend on a number of factors, one of which is if that person has any assets. You should speak with an attorney very soon. Most attorneys that handle these sorts of cases will not charge you a fee to discuss your case, nor will they charge a fee if you they decide...

    If the store's negligence caused your injury, you likely have a claim. Speak with a personal injury attorney to determine what steps you need to take. Good luck.

    I am sorry to hear about your situation. You very well may have a claim. Medical malpractice cases are difficult, particularly in Florida, so you need to have your case reviewed by an attorney. Also, keep in mind that you only have two years to file a Florida medical malpractice case.
