    Zane’s Answer

    More information is definitely needed in order to answer this question. Typically, the facts/description of a potential medical malpractice case is rather lengthy and you would be better off contacting a personal injury attorney in the St. Louis area and speaking with an attorney directly about the situation. The attorney will need to know why your son was taken to the hospital, type of injury and of course, the events that led up to him being airlifted. Really too much personal information to put on a public website.

    Double check your dates. If this occurred in 2012, then you have a problem since the statute of limitations in Texas is 2 years. For clarification, contact a Texas personal injury attorney if the crash occurred in Texas.

    There is quite a bit more information needed before an attorney can truly answer your question. You should contact a personal injury attorney in the Los Angeles area as soon as possible.

    If you were injured, then yes, you should hire an experienced personal injury attorney in Oklahoma--assuming the crash occurred in Oklahoma. Unfortunately, insurance companies often do not take your claim all that seriously until you force them to do so by hiring an attorney. The key deciding factor in whether or not you need an attorney is considering whether or not you were injured. However, consultations with a personal injury attorney are usually free and you absolutely should ask questions and get information from an attorney before dropping the matter or assuming there is nothing you can do about it.

    I live in oregon my teenage permitted daughter wrecked my new car with a licenced adult in the car i had complete coverage on the vehicle and now myinsurance company doesnt want to cover damages

    Zane’s Answer

    You should contact a local personal injury attorney and review a copy of your policy with them. If she is not excluded in the policy and they have denied coverage, you will need counsel to pursue.

    As the other attorneys have indicated, we cannot give a ballpark number or timeline based on the above information. There is no magic calculator including a timeline that exists for settlements--they all vary depending on numerous factors. You should communicate with your attorney and ask questions regarding timelines, demands and offers.

    The actions taken in a civil case do not impact the prosecuting attorney's ability to file criminal charges. You should consult a criminal defense attorney in your area.

  • My son was injured at daycare

    My son was bitten and scratched multiple times (presumably by the same classmate) over a period of 5 days at a daycare. He has scars on his face from one of these attacks. After voicing our concerns for our son's future safety, he was uninvited t...

    Zane’s Answer

    I agree with the other attorneys here. First priority is the safety of your child and be sure that he receives any medical treatment that he needs. Furthermore, document his injuries through photos and medical treatment. The claim you would have against the daycare depends on the nature of his injuries.
    Obviously, as a parent, I would not return my child to that daycare whether they "disinvited" him or not as child safety is the first concern of any childcare facility.

  • What is the appropriate wording for a letter to my insurance assigned attorney to settle within my policy limits?

    I am the defendant in a car accident where no citations were given. I don't want this to go to trial. I don't want what assets I do have to be at risk. Its making me sick!

    Zane’s Answer

    I agree, you would be smart to hire your own attorney to be sure the claim and offer/settlement are correct.

    Zane’s Answer

    You definitely need to contact an experienced car accident attorney now! Since it is so close to the SOL, it may be difficult to find a good attorney willing to take this on if you wait any longer. Gather all of your information together and take advantage of their free consultation.
