I am a transactional attorney who has a client who suffered broken rods and screws after receiving spinal fusion surgery. Looking to refer case out for lawsuit. Please contact me if interested.
I believe the better practice would be to use the Find an Attorney function to locate an attorney in or near the venue where the case will be pending. The site was not really intended for contact in the manner you are trying.See question

I agree with Mr. Nicotra. Assuming there is no way to prove the prior payment, you should make sure your insurance company is on notice. I'm not sure what a "package" is but if a lawsuit has been started, you or your carrier will need to answer the complaint to avoid a default.See question
If someone suffered an injury 10 years ago but the injury didn't cause death until now, can a wrongful death suit still be filed within 2 years after the person's death? For instance, let's say a customer fell in a store and went into coma. And th...
There are a couple of potential obstacles. Did the person already receive compensation for the original injury? If so, the release would have covered the contingency of future damages. Second, even assuming the statute of limitations hasn't expired, you present a difficult damages claim. It begs the question, if the damages were so severe that it lead to suicide, why such a long gap in time?See question
I have a friend who has a serious illness and she needs treatment in the U.S. but because her treatment is very costly (in the millions of dollars), we need to know whether she can use an insurance policy to remove some of the difficulty.

Basically, negligence is the failure to exercise that degree of care that someone acting reasonably would be expected to use in similar circumstances. It can be performing an act unreasonably or failing to perform an act when one was appropriate. If the person initiating the contact owed a duty of care to the injured party and acted unreasonably in making that contact that resulted in the harm, then you've made out a basic negligence cause of action.See question
Car was parked at work and a driver hit 5 parked cars including mine.
I assume you're asking because your car was totaled. You are only entitled to the blue book value of the vehicle at the time the damage is sustained. Put in a claim through the offending driver's insurance company.See question

Unless the method of service was directed by the court, multiple services would not be prohibited even after filing proof(s) of service. As suggested, you should be guided by the statute of limitations. If time is running out, you should verify the address your are using for service. The defendant can always try to open a default which would likely be granted if he/she can show the address for service was not valid.See question
