  • Can i sue and who can i sue if i found a bone in my yogurt but i was not hurt?

    it was a store brand product

    Sambar’s Answer

    Typically a personal injury claim/lawsuit requires some type of damages from the tort committed against you. Although a jury may find the yogurt company (and possibly others) liable for the bone being in your yogurt, they would be hard pressed to award any monetary damages.

    Sambar’s Answer

    When you hire an attorney to represent you in a legal matter, they work for you. Contractual agreements do not supersede state laws and ethical obligations of the attorney. You have final say as to whether you want to settle or take your case to trial.

    Sambar’s Answer

    I agree with the prior two posts. In any personal injury case, you need to prove liability and damages. In your wife's situation, should you file a lawsuit and proceed to trial, there is a good chance a jury will find Walmart liable for creating a dangerous condition which resulted in your wife's fall. However, when they are presented with the damages question (how much in medical bills, lost wages, etc. sustained by claimant/Plaintiff), they will most likely come back with a zero dollar verdict, i.e., there are no damages in this situation.

    Sambar’s Answer

    A day care can be sued under these circumstances. In any personal injury lawsuit, one has to prove a duty to owed by the at-fault party to the plaintiff/claimaint, liability, and damages. Based on the facts you've disclosed, liability seems clear but further investigation would be necessary. Damages can involve any physical or emotional injuries suffered by the child and/or parent(s). And all licensed daycare facilities are required to carry insurance. I would advise you to contact a lawyer licensed in Texas as soon as possible, if you haven't already done so. There are several factors that can positively or negatively affect your case, and an experienced attorney can help guide you along the way.

  • Does Medicare require reimbursement of expenses when it comes to personal injury cases and how do they go about it?

    What is the procedure when it comes to settlement on a personal injury lawsuit and you are declared disabled. Do they put a lien on the settlement.

    Sambar’s Answer

    Generally, Medicare will put a lien on any personal injury case where they paid for medical treatment related to the underlying injury involved in the claim or lawsuit. The lien only applies if a settlement or a jury verdict occurs -- if there is no recovery, then normally, nothing has to be paid back on this lien. Medicare will usually send you a letter saying they are putting a lien on the case and subrogating their interest in the matter. Per the laws, even if they don't send you something in writing, you are on notice that a lien exists.
