  • Do we need an attorney?

    My 97 year old mother is coming home from a nursing home & needs wound care for the ulcer on her leg. Called the local hospital Home Care Services, (they have cared for my mom in the past), and was told they could not see her because the leg need...

    Robert’s Answer

    No it is not discrimination. However, you should seek a local lawyer familiar with nursing home cases. Ulcers are never acceptable and are almost always due to negligence. In short, this should not have happened. Talk with a lawyer about this asap. Take photos of the wounds and notes re her complaints.

  • I had a partial knee replacement, followed by a total knee replacement to correct my patella riding on outside of my knee.

    The first surgery I had was a Lateral Release to bring my knee cap back into alignment. That did not correct the problem so the surgeon recommended a partial knee replacement. That did not work so he recommended a total knee replacement. That s...

    Robert’s Answer

    Bad results do not automatically equate to malpractice. You will have to prove that the surgeon’s actions or inaction fell below the acceptable standard of care. That will require expert testimony. The best way to determine if the doctor committed malpractice is to speak with a local medical malpractice lawyer.

    i wanted to know if i could sue chevy. this was a head on it. Back and neck hurt to where i lost my job thank you for your time

    Robert’s Answer

    Generally, the only time it makes financial sense to sue over airbags failing to deploy is when someone suffers catastrophic injury or is killed. This is because the manufactures defend these cases to the end and it is very expensive to prosecute the claim (tens of thousands of dollars at minimum).

    Robert’s Answer

    Hopefully you have insurance which will cover any of your losses (including for any personal injury you may have suffered). Put your insurance company on notice of the incident. If you were injured, speak with a local personal injury lawyer before you do anything else (other than seek appropriate medical care).

    Robert’s Answer

    Very likely there is nothing you can do. You knew about the injury and the cause. The statute of limitations is almost certainly expired. You can speak with a medical malpractice lawyer in VT to make sure you don’t fall into an exception to the rule or that the statute of limitations wasn’t tolled for some reason.

    Robert’s Answer

    You should speak with a local workers compensation lawyer. However, being sore from work is not the same as being injured. If you were injured as a result of working, then you are likely entitled to work comp benefits. You are entitled to breaks if you work a certain number of hours. You can speak with a local employment lawyer about it.

    Robert’s Answer

    You should not cash the check. You should speak with a local personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. I don’t know PA law, but this could also be considered bad faith claims practice.
