    There is no likely settlement based on a negligence claim against the store unless you can prove that there was a dangerous condition of their property that they either created or allowed to exist for an unreasonable length of time when they knew about the vomit or should have known about with a reasonable inspection policy of their premises in place. The location of the vomit would be important since if it were within the view of the employees at the checkout counter or other fixed employee...

    California has a 2 year Statute of Limitations which allows an accident victim 2 years to file a lawsuit against the negligent driver who caused a vehicle accident. So the fact that 10 months has passed does not eliminates your legal rights to be fairly compensated for your injuries and resulting damages. If you have reached an impasse with the insurance company than I suggest you contact an experienced personal injury attorney to review the facts of your case and your medical records to...

    There is no magic number for the contingency fee amount. Picking the best lawyer to represent you is not like shopping for a car. I have found that many accident victims actually spend more time researching a car online for comparison pricing than doing their homework in locating the best personal injury attorney they can find with qualifications that can best provide the maximum recovery for losses and damages caused by an accident. Look for AV rated lawyers who have been given that rating...

    You can’t really expect to have your question answered based on the facts presented. You need to ask your attorney this question. The fact that you have not addressed this issue with your attorney appears to indicate that you have a communication problem with your attorney. A premises liability case involving the tripping over a cement parking stop at night may require a lighting expert combined with a safety expert. The expenditure of investigation and expert costs are justified in cases...

    There are periods of time during the course of an accident claim when things are just static. During those periods your lawyer may not have anything important to share with you. Having said that I can tell you that I ask my clients to report to me on a monthly basis as to their injury symptoms they are experiencing and the medical treatment they are receiving. I answer phone calls in a reasonable time period and invite questions from my clients. Not all lawyers practice the same way. If...

    If you have retained a lawyer then why are you asking for legal advice? I am not being critical; but it appears that you don’t have confidence in your representation. Perhaps you have not retained the lawyer that suggested you see a chiropractor. I personally don’t recommend chiropractors. If you are currently not represented you must not be anxious to settle your case before you allow your injuries to stabilize so that the full nature and extent of your injuries can be diagnosed by a...

    You can submit your medical bills to your driver’s insurance company if he had Medical Payments coverage which requires his insurance company to pay your accident related medical bills up to the limits of the police coverage. That is an option for you. And of course the other driver’s insurance has the ultimate responsibility to pay the medical bills that can be proven to be related to your accident related injuries. If you currently have no symptoms of any injury you sustained in the...

    Your decision about the surgery should be made on the basis of what you are advised by Board Certified Spine Surgeons, and or Neurosurgeons. Always get more than one opinion especially if the only doctor to recommend the surgery will be performing it on a lien basis. Do you really mean that your attorney told you to have the surgery? Your decision about the surgery is a medical decision not a legal decision. The surgery will add significant value to your case; but this surgery carries...

    Wal-Mart does not settle all cases involving customers who claim to have been injured in their stores. In fact in Southern California they often make lowball offers and will force the case to go to trial. Additionally it is absurd to make a blanket statement that they settle all cases without even discussing the relative merits of each claim they allegedly settle. Any injured person can handle their own case if they so chose. Having said that I would agree with most personal injury...

    You have asked a question that is honestly impossible for any experienced personal injury lawyer to answer with any degree of certainty. As noted by some who provided you with good advice, you have omitted important facts that are required to analyze your dilemma. Is your lawyer highly rated by AVVO? Is your lawyer rated AV by Martindale-Hubbell which is the most prestigious attorney rating publication in the United States? Do you have residual pain and or disability from your injuries? Are...
