    Indiana's medical malpractice statute of limitations is two years from the point of the act of medical malpractice. Children six and under have until their eighth birthday to file a medical malpractice lawsuit. See Indiana Code 34-18-7-1(b) However, if an act of medical malpractice is not discovered for a time after the event, individual judges may allow cases to move forward despite the statute of limitations. Based upon your question, I am concerned that you may have been mis-advised by a...

    First, send a certified letter to to lawyer explaining that you are NOT the proper person and that you will take action against his law firm and his client is the claim is not withdrawn. Offer to give him an Affidavit to support your position. Also, notify your auto insurance agent who will then turn the claim in to your auto insurance. They will hire a lawyer and you should explain to that lawyer what happened. They will essentially represent you for free. Good luck and I'm sorry you had...

    If the accident was the fault of the other person, they a surgeon may be willing to do the surgery on a "lien" basis.

This coverage applies to the vehicle in which you were occupied and pays benefits regardless of fault. There are other ways a lawyer may be able to help you. Call me for a free...

    No, ideally you would hire an attorney that does both personal injury law and also handles legal malpractice claims against other lawyers. That way, the lawyer handling your legal malpractice claim understands precisely how the personal injury lawyer made mistakes and how those mistakes harmed you. My firm does both.

    Yes, you may be able to revive your rights to file a claim for work comp benefits. Your boss should NEVER have tried to persuade you not to file a claim. Ask your boss for the name of his work comp carrier and contact them directly. More importantly, call an experience work comp law firm and seek the specific advice of a lawyer. You need to file certain paperwork asap if you wish to have a decent chance at preserving your right to benefits.

  8. Can you sue a lawyer in illinois for making a negligent referral to another attorney who is unqualified and or botches a case?

    In my opinion, yes, you could sue the lawyer if the referring attorney received some type of benefit from the relationship you had with the Illinois lawyer. For example, if the attorneys were involved in a co-counsel for fee-sharing relationship on your case, then it is possible to hold both attorneys jointly responsible for any errors that were made. See Illinois Rule of Professional Conduct 1.5(e)
