    The good news is that that the sulfur in the CDW does not seem to have caused permanent damage to those exposed. Many people suffered nausea, nose bleeds and respiratory problems, but they seem to dissipate when they were removed from the CDW location. You should contact a lawyer right away, as the time for getting involved in the CDW class action may have passed.

    In medical malpractice, there is a very strict time limit for you to bring your case. Contact a lawyer right away.

    If a 30 year old man dies in a fatal crash and his parents file a wrongful death suit where does the money go? He's not marries but has a child. To the parents or the child?

    Generally, any recovery would go to the child, if there is no will making a different disposition. You need to contact a local attorney in this matter.

    I have health care insurance that entitles me to home health care after surgery. The provider contracts with an agency to set that up and is supposed to use a third party. Have had a full knee replacement and have not received any care for over 6 ...

    Vincent’s Answer

    Contact the doctor's office and let them know what is going on. The doctor certainly wants to make sure you have a successful recovery. You should also contact your insurance company and demand that they locate an alternative home health agency, as there are many available.

    Vincent’s Answer

    I do not think you will find a lawyer to sue for pain and suffering in your case. You do have a remedy; go to another pharmacy. I also do not think the media will help. Try and stay positive and help yourself.

    Vincent’s Answer

    You should certainly speak with your attorney as soon as possible about this. During the past 9 months, you should have discussed the pending birth with your lawyer. Further, at mediation, your attorney can present the additional facts and needs of your new born during the negotiation discussions.

    Vincent’s Answer

    If you were paying premiums to an insurance company and in fact had no policy in effect through COBRA, you may be entitled to a refund. I would contact the company you have been paying and demand a refund. Next, go to your former employer and get on the right plan.

  • How to collect money from check issued in my name and hospital's name?

    I was involved in an accident and the insurance company issued a settlement check both in my name and the hospital's name. What would it take to get the hospital's name off the check? The insurance company stated that they could make the check in ...

    Vincent’s Answer

    I do not know how much the hospital bill is, nor do I know the amount of the settlement check. I am assuming the settlement is somewhere near the hospital bill amount. Go down to the hospital's financial department. Meet with one of the representatives and explain to them that you have settled the case and describe whatever problems you have (can't work etc.). You need to negotiate the amount of the medical bills to an agreeable amount. Once you have done this, get it in writing and submit it to the insurance company. They will then issue new checks. problem solved.
