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

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

It appears you are primarily if not entirely responsible for the accident. The fact the the other driver has no license will not be a determining factor. What matters is how each drive-licensed or unlicensed operated their vehicles. Make sure you forward the legal papers to your own auto insurance company. If you have no collision coverage ask the attorneys defending the case on your behalf to assert or assert you in asserting a counterclaim for car damage but it will be difficult to recover as you "blew" as stop sign. Dropping you by your insurance company is an underwriting decision that you have to accept. Your attorneys will defend the case and attempt to minimize the damages and perhaps claim the the other driver bears some small portion of fault for the crash e.g. excessive speed, you entering into the intersection first. Good luck.See question
Do I have a case?
Here are some initial suggestions. Try to take photographs of what caused the fall and the surrounding environs. Retain an attorney to investigate the matter and counsel must file a notice of claim against the school district within 90 days from the occurrence. Determine by that investigation who owned and maintained the hose and drain cover. Don't give anyone a statement about what happened or how you are doing whether written or oral. Get a free consultation from a lawyer and retain a firm to tell you the strengths and weaknesses of a potential case. Speedy recovery to you!See question

My sense is that because you are posting this question that the relationship with your attorney may not be ideal, one of communication and trust. Unless the facts of your case are somewhat complex or your injuries compel some delay, generally whether in the Bronx or elsewhere five years for a generic "slip and fall" matter is too long to litigate. Make an appointment with your attorney and feel comfortable after you leave that you have an adequate explanation why you are five years post injury and what are reasonable expectations to resolve your case. Make a decision based on that meeting whether to stay the course with your current counsel or find new counsel based on open communication, access, trust and competence.See question
Went to ER had CT scan, three stiches on r elbow, bruise on forehead, x-rays done of chest and back, and hand.
For a lawsuit to be worthwhile in pursuing there ought be injuries of some significance and the ability to prove fault of the salon. You must show some defective condition which the salon by its owners or employees created which caused the fall or a condition causing the fall know to it or present for an amount of time that the condition causing the fall should have been known and corrected. I would endeavor to take a pic of what caused you to fall. As an example if the carpet was torn or not properly laid or affixed, these are examples of a defective condition However, the injuries appear not to be serious and long lasting and I would get the treatment you need and then see if an attorney might help you settle the claim or if the injuries are significant and permanent with lasting consequences then consider filing a lawsuit provided you can show that the salon created or knew about what caused the fall and that what caused you to fall is a defective or improper condition. Hope this helps.See question
