Your fiance definitelyl needs an accident attorney. If you trust a local lawyer, whatever their practice area, ask them for a referral to a quality personal injury attorney. You want to find an attorney that you can trust, knows the law and in your geographical area asap!
It is important that an incident report was completed. If so, contact them for their insurance carrier's information. It is difficult to tell from the post whether or not you sought medical treatment. Medical treatment is important, first and foremost for your own well-being, but it also documents your injury in follow up to an incident report.
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.
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.

Your physical well-being is a the first priority, but take the information the answering attorneys have given and stop discussing the scenario online. Seek assistance from counsel immediately.
Medical malpractice cases require a lot of information from you and it is impossible to make a determination if you have a med mal case based on the above post. You should contact a medical malpractice attorney in your state to discuss the specifics and dates of your experience. After the attorney has reviewed all of the information, they can tell you if they will be able to assist you. As different states have different statutes of limitations, you should contact a Massachusetts personal...
I agree with the other answering attorneys and what they have said. Standard fees include the 33 1/3 for cases that settle and 40% for cases if tried, but you should be concerned with the attorney's track record and how you feel talking with him/her. It has to be a good fit for you and your attorney should explain everything to you. Ask questions of the potential attorney! The question-answer customer service is one of the best parts of being an attorney for me as it allows my client and I to...
First, was it reported to the police? and two, where you injured? If you were injured, then you should contact an experienced personal injury attorney. Many policies excluded intentional acts, so you will want to consult a personal injury attorney.
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...
