    Answered . Did your attorney decline your case? These cases are very difficult in Alabama due to contributory negligence - if you are 1% at fault you cannot recover. But, if Winn Dixie is pointing at the cleaning service, it could help your case. If you still have an attorney, you should make an appointment to go sit down and talk to him face to face. If not, I would need to discuss your case more in depth, I.e.: injuries, medical treatment, facts, etc.

    Answered . Talk to your atty.he should be able to add the cleaning company into the claim. It can sometimes help to have 2 defts pointing at each other. if your atty says he cant do this, then go get a second opinion from local atty immediately.

    Answered . I agree with my responding colleagues. If you are unsatisfied with the work of your attorney, you need to organize what you want from him and have an honest discussion. If you are still unsatisfied with his legal assistance, then you should look for a second opinion. I hope you found my answer helpful.
