I sustained burns at a spa and the spa has acknowledged my injures. I have started medical treatment as well. My scars are visible and may be permanent. Any suggestions on how I may retain a personal injury counsel that specializes in spa injuries?
This is a fact sensitive question. In other words any competent personal injury attorney would need to sit down with you and discuss the facts and circumstances of the incident and determine whether there is provable negligence. The context of how you were burned is very important so reach out to someone that you trust understanding that there is no particular specialty and Spa injuries and any solid experienced personal injury litigator can be of help to youSee question
I have a police report detailing what happen. I am not filing a claim with my insurance carrier, so I want to know if I can use the details of the report to file a lawsuit against the driver. How can I file a lawsuit if I didn't see how the accide...
Yes as you can prove a case through means other then what you observed and know. You can utilize witneeses to the accident, information which the police may have, admissions as tio fault from the other driver.
If the accident occurred in New York State you have to satisfy a certain injury threshold as to severity within a legal definition. A lawsuit can allege fault not on direct knowledge but "upon information and belief" and allegations of fault can be broad merely alleging negligence and carelessness. Get yourself an attorney who can protect your valuable rights and interests and get well soon if injured.
A window fell out of track hit me on the head and left me with a concussion. I have post concussion syndrome and there was gross negligence as i found out and have proof 2 people before me were hit by same window and employer knew about both times...
Incidentally my firm is handling the same type of case at a hotel with two earlier injuries involving the same window. My question is would you be suing your employer in which case you would be prohibited from doing so by worker's compensation law but if you can show perhaps that someone other than your employer installed the window and or that there was some maintenance company that did not properly maintain the window other than your employer then you can bring a lawsuit Bottom line is get yourself a competent lawyer and try to place responsibility on someone other than the party for whom you work if they were involved abd that would include let's say the owner of the building if other than your employer. MERRY CHRISTMAS and get better soon !See question

To obtain maximum recovery is driven by the strength of your case and being able to establish legal responsibility. If you proceeded on your own you may be able to resolve the matter but not I predict for fair value. Find yourself a competent personal injury attorney and in the end you will do much better with Counsel then you will achieve on your own. If you speak with an adjuster di not give a signed or recorded statement. Bottom line get a good attorney one who has handled and tried these types of cases and one with adequate support staff and resources. Good luckSee question

The hospital sent my daddy home that way after he passed I called the doctor and he told me we were lucky he lived that long as they said they only expected him to live only 3 days we were never told this, then the hospital went in to bankruptcy c...
The answer is a qualified yes if you have a case based on a review of hospital records. If he had untreated bedsores which caused blood poisoning or systemic failure and he died from this you certainly can proceed and there is most likely insurance the bankruptcy trustee would have to appoint your attorney to represent the estate of your father. You likely would be limited in the bankruptcy proceeding to the amount of insurance so you have to get an estate representative appointed obtain and evaluate medical records and then apply to the bankruptcy court for permission to bring the lawsuit which likely again would be limited to insurance proceeds insurance coverage on the hospitalSee question
The accident occurred in Dec. 2013. I received more than 6 months of therapy and I sought out an attorney to help me with my case. I failed to mention that the first driver left the scene of the accident on foot and drugs and drug paraphernalia we...
The statute of limitations assuming it is a privately owned vehicle that struck you would expire 3 years after the date of the accident. I wonder if the car that you refer to as the first car bears any responsibility because usually under most circumstances the vehicle striking from the rear would be responsible. If you have ongoing back problems make sure you see a doctor so there is a record of your problems. Your attorney should advise you whether the injuries you have from the accident rise to the level of satisfying the legal standard of serious injury. You also should have notified your own insurance company if you have what is known as supplementary uninsured motorist protection. Your attorneys job is to present your injuries in the most favorable light to maximize the chances of establishing a serious or qualifying injurySee question

You must immediatley notify your own auto insurance company if you own a car or live in a home or apratment with anyone else who owns a car. You may have additional coverage under your own auto policy or the policy of spomeone with whom you reside. This is important to do. Check this out asap. You also through an attorney have to determine whenther any one else such as an adjoining property owner or the City may have some rersponsibility for the accident. An attorney should help you and look for additional insurance.See question

It appears from what you are saying that the injuries which you describe may rise to a "serious injury' and qualify for a lawsuit. An attorney must review all of your medical record including test results. An attorney might want to obtain reports where a treating physician describes your limitations supported by objective findings. If you have unable to work for 90 days because of your injuries this will be used to support a lawsuit. You are well advised to consult with a lawyer experienced in the handling of personal injury matters. You may be able to establish from permanent or consequential limitation which also would support a lawsuit to recover money damages. Best of luck!See question
