    This fact pattern sounds difficult for you. You have to prove the homeowner was negligent. I think you have an uphill battle with the facts presented.

    Florida Med Mal statute limits which survivors can recover. So before determining if you have a case on the medicine, you need to determine if you have survivors as defined by Florida Statute. Did you mother have a spouse at the time of get death? If not, did she have any children under the age of 25? If your answer is no to both, then there is no case.

  • We received a settlement of $800.000 for medical malpractice claim lawyer's fee is 320,000 & her cost is 254,000. Is that crazy

    We signed contract, and although high-- we can live with 40 percent fee which was calculated before cost were deducted. I have requested three times for cost breakdown, and have yet to receive. Hearing is set for 13th of march, and I feel cost a...

    Sagi’s Answer

    The 40% is standard by personal injury attorney. Medical malpractice cases are extremely expensive to prosecute and it is not out of the ordinary to spend the sums your lawyer spent on that type of case. Of course, there are many variables (for example, how long did the case take, what type of experts retained, were focused groups done, etc). Have a sit down with your lawyer and go through itemized breakdown of costs. Liens can be a daunting task and they take a long time to negotiate. Good luck with your remaining cases.

    Sagi’s Answer

    Report this matter to your car insurance company. They will provide you a lawyer and attempt to settle your case. For the ticket, call one of those ticket attorneys to defend you. If the alleged victim does not show for the trial of the traffic ticket, the case will get dismissed by the magistrate hearing the matter.
