    First, sorry about your child. Yes, it most likely would make a difference if you hire an attorney experienced with personal injury claims. Also, that attorney should have a reputation for taking cases to court if the insurance company does not pay what it should for a claim. Insurance companies know who those attorneys are. So, make sure you ask each attorney you meet with how many jury trials they've had with personal injury cases and when the last time was they've had a jury trial. Remember,...

    Immediately contact a local attorney who has experience with personal injury and workers compensation cases. You may still have a case.

    Get your own attorney ASAP. Also, make sure the attorney you choose has a reputation for taking cases to trial if the insurance company will not settle. This makes an insurance company think twice about not paying a fair amount for your claim. If you want to recover damages beyond the liability policy limits of the other driver or your uninsured / underinsured coverage, you run the risk of a verdict less than what you could have received if you reject a settlement. Contact a personal injury...

    Generally, a dog gets "one free bite". In other words, the owner of the dog must have notice that the dog has a propensity to be vicious. Contact a personal injury attorney in your area that has experience with dog bite cases. Sorry about your daughter, I'm sure its tough for you to see her hurt like that. Good luck!

    I see three options: (1) file a complaint about the masseuse with the state agency that regulates the profession, (2) contact the local district attorney office about a criminal complaint and (3) file a civil lawsuit against the masseuse. You may choose one or all three. Whatever you do, contact a local personal injury attorney immediately to advise you specifically on how California law applies. Sorry this has happened. Good luck!

    This is very unfortunate that your mom may have taken money that is rightfully yours. To help maintain any relationship that you may have with your mom, I would give your mom a chance to explain or return the money. If your mom does not return the money, you then have a decision to make ... take legal action against your mom or simply not do anything. That's a difficult decision because it may affect your relationship with your mom for the rest of your life. If you decide to take legal action,...

    Your question is a medical question, not a legal question. Hopefully, you will not need any additional treatment than you would have required if it was caught early when first seen. If you do need additional treatament than what would have first been required, contact a medical malpractice attorney immediately. That attorney can help find the doctors necessary to review you case to determine if a biopsy should have been done. Good luck and my thoughts are with you.

    Product liability lawsuits are very expensive. Unless you've been seriously injured, it would most likely not be worth spending your time and money. However, contact a local personal injury attorney to discuss the specific facts of your case. Sorry this happened ... Good luck!

    If you choose an experienced personal injury attorney with a reputation of taking cases to trial if the settlement offered is not acceptable, changing attorneys will help your case. Adjusters know the attorneys who simply settle cases and the attorneys who will take a case to trial, if necessary. If you change attorneys, look closely and make the right choice. Good luck!
