    Unfortunately, it some times plays out like that with contingency fees. I am assuming your attorney took your case on contingency--e.g. The attoreny fronts all of the expenses, in return for a percentage of the verdict/settlement and expenses. Usually this contingency fee is 33 1/3 % plus expenses. Most attorneys also add in the contract that if the case goes to trial, he will receive 40% of the verdict. This is because trial adds additional expense and time. Additionally, some firms (like...

    Seek out a qualified personal injury attorney to protect your rights. With a good law firm, you should be able to speak to a knowledgable attorney about your claim for no charge. Additionally, most personal injury attorneys work on contingency--meaning, you pay nothing out of pocket; the attorneys are compensated from your settlement or jury verdict; attorneys pay expenses until a settlement or jury verdict is reached.

    Call an attorney immediately. The statute of limitations will depend upon the facts and circumstances of your case. I will be happy to review your case for free. If my firm believes that you do have a claim we can help with, we would take the case on contingency (e.g. no out of pocket expense for you; just collect from settlement/verdict).

    More than likely, there are great med mal lawyers in Florida. Do your homework. Look at reviews on google, martindale.com, avvo.com, and from the newspapers. See what medical malpractice attorneys in your area have recovered for their clients. Call firms you think may be good, and ask to speak with an attorney. From my experience, the best firms will allow you to speak with an attorney immediately. A firm with low resources or man power will usually ask if they can call you back.

    Let me answer this from a different angle. Was the car accident your fault? Do you have injuries? Does he have injuries? Was it a fender bender? These are the questions I would want to know. Assuming it was your fault, you do not have injuries, he does not have injuries, and it was a fender bender, I agree with the attorneys who posted. First, I would pay him the cost of a receipt from a body shop for the damage. I would ask to have a copy of that receipt first, and only pay that...

    Not to keep giving you the same answer, but be sure to get insurance if you plan on driving again. A ticket should be the least of your worries. In Illinois, state minimum insurance is not that expensive. I would advise you to get more than the state minimum, but at least you would have insurance that way.

    Call a medical malpractice attorney in Illinois. They will be able to ask you pointed questions to determine whether you have a claim against the hospital or the nursing staff. If they think you may, they will have you sign a contract and HIPPA authorizations. They will then receive your mother's medical records. After a thorough review, they can then tell you whether they think you have a strong enough case to proceed. There really is no other way to do it.

    In general, medical malpractice cases are very expensive. Therefore, most attorneys will not take your case unless there is clear neglgience with severe damages or death. Also, all counties are not created equal. Some counties in Illinois are even harder to receive favorable verdits. However, an attorney that consults with you should clearly explain to you why they don't think its a case. In my opinion, that is the hallmark of a good attorney. If you don't understand after they...

    There is a statute of limitations which may bar your claim. The length of time will depend upon several different factors, especially your current age. Assuming the statute of limitations has not expired, the claim would most likely be medical malpractive-negligence.

    Do you have insurance? If so, you should have reported it to your insurance company. If you haven't reported it, then I would do so immediately. Your insurance company should pursue the other driver's insurance. They do this so they can avoid paying for damage that was not their insured's fault. If you do not have insurance, this becomes more difficult. Do you have her information? Do you have the police report containing her information? Were you injured? Was she injured? Answers...
