  • Defense says they have video of me?

    I have a personal injury case that is heading into mediation. The defense says they have surveillance of me. They have not yet told my lawyer what the video is about all they have said is that it includes me. How long before the mediation date sh...

    Kevin’s Answer

    My experience has been that juries do not like surveillance. It is sneaky and not well received if your are sincere. In fact in one trial the defense used a video and refused to make an offer to settle before trial. My client was later awarded $225,000. The exact amount that I asked for. Do not be afraid of the video.

    No. Sounds like a good case to me. You may want to get in touch with Saul Gruber in N.J. who is an excellent nursing home attorney.

    • Selected as best answer

    Sounds like your only claim is a claim for workers compensation benefits. With this claim your medical should be paid and you may be entitled to lost wages if you miss enough work. Ask your employer if they filed a workers compensation claim for you.

    Kevin’s Answer

    You and your attorney need to communicate openly and honestly about how you are doing and what is best for your claim. Ultimately you are the one who makes the choices about your treatment. Sit down and have a face to face talk with your attorney.

  • I Reside in arizona My brother was residing in a home in caLifornia I lost my brother .I believe this was due to negligence.

    Will I be able to sue the home for negligence? If so please tell me how.

    Kevin’s Answer

    I am sorry for your loss. To answer your question will require many more details and then all of the medical and nursing home records will need to be reviewed. If there was negligence then certainly you can and should assert a claim against those that are responsible.

  • Struck by a hit a run drunk driver

    I was rear ended by a drunk driver in a rental van who fled the scene. Is there anyway to get the rental company to own up to the damages and injuries?

    Kevin’s Answer

    This one sounds like you need to get an attorney to look into the situation. There is a legal theory called negligent entrustment. You also want to check and see if you have uninsured motorist coverage on your own policy.

  • Can I file a lawsuit against an apartment complex for a negligence that resulted in my injury?

    I am living with my boyfriend of 5 years in an apartment complex in Peoria, AZ. I receive mail here, but I am not on the lease, my children are though. A massive beehive fell into the yard outside our door. The complex put caution tape and did n...

    Kevin’s Answer

    It sounds like the apartment complex knew or should have known that the bee hive existed and was a danger to persons in the complex. You likely have a claim for negligence against the complex if the hive was present for a significant period of time and not taken care of.

    Kevin’s Answer

    Sorry to hear that you are getting the run around from the insurance company. I have handled many wrongful death cases and have even written an e book about Arizona Wrongful Death that I would be happy to send to you free of charge. If an agreement was reached concerning the amount of the vehicle then it should be enforceable. I suggest that you get an attorney involved to protect your rights.
