    If the question is CAN you sue, the answer is undoubtedly yes. The question of IF you should sue, I would need to know much more but would likely say no. It sounds you went through a horrible thing. But medical malpractice cases are some of the hardest cases to win without question. And when it is about a cosmetic issue, jurors are even harder to win over. If the waiver only requires arbitration that is not always such a bad thing. I spent 80 grand out of pocket on an trial on a medical...

    Yes. You should consult a good worker's comp attorney and possibly some government entities like Cal OSHA regarding what appears to be a willful disregard for the safety of others. If you have any injuries, you need a workers comp lawyer asap. I don't do comp law, but have a great referral if you need one. Feel free to contact me: 310-477-0404

  4. Is it mandatory to respond to Blue Shield's (health care insurance) request for additional car insurance info for a car accident

    The short answer is that you most likely do not have to provide them with any info. Generally, if you were going to make a claim and recover money from the third party then they would be entitled. But in your case, I see no reason for you to have to jump through their hoops. You may want to read your insurance policy to be safe though.

    This type of comment is a waste of the site's resources and seems to be made only to insight people, and is not even a question. However, I suppose freedom of speech along with the freedom to respond to get more points should exist on this site. On to the next one...

    I am confused as to how the person could be insured if they didn't have a license. Most insurance policies that I am aware of have a provision that states that failure to maintain a driver's license is grounds for denial of coverage for an accident. I could be wrong and this might not apply to all insurance policies. However, if the insurance company is saying they are providing coverage then take advantage of it and settle the case for the reasonable value (without regard to whether or not...

    In California, the statute of limitations for personal injuries and property damage are not the same. For injuries, pain and suffering, loss of income, medical bills, and other bills or expenses as a result of an incident is two years. For property damage, like the cost of repairing your vehicle for example, is longer. I believe it is 3 years for property damage. It is at least three, not sure about 4. Point is it sounds like the statute is blown for everything but property damage,...

    To brief, it sounds like you need to try to talk to your attorney to see if his heart is in the case. If not, have a candid, non-confrontational conversation as to why. If you disagree and still want to fight it, ask for your file from your attorney and put in writing (and keep an exact copy) that you are firing him for failure to adequately do his job for you. Then immediately find another attorney that is known for and good at handling tough personal injury cases. I would be happy to...

    Not likely. And if you have a jury, I wouldn't want to be there because they are more an more anti plaintiff and this case does not cry for sympathy. I would let it go (the lawsuit, not the dog).

    Unfortunately, it sounds as though you had some great issues to raise during trial or in a motion for new trial or appeal. However, if the time has passed to bring any such remedy, then I'm afraid your only recourse would be to possibly sue your attorney you feels strongly that he/she did or did not do something tantamount to negligence that caused you to lose your case (or prevented you from prevailing). Legal malpractice suits are no only governed by a short statute of limitations...
