While attempting to open a bottle of tea my thumb was cut by excess flashing that wasn't cleared from the bottle. It wasn't the lid or ring it was the flared out part under the ring.
Grounds possibly yes. Based upon injuries unlikely an attorney would take the case. Product cases require expert and are expensive to pursue. You injurys and the medicsl care, if any. Would be too minor to justify cost and time of a lawsuit- in my opinionSee question
Obviously the client did not have sufficient knowledge therefore hired an attorney to begin with. The question remains in a workman's comp or surgery was required How can a law firm take advantage of THE clients. Not asking you to give away all yo...

To the point, if you are totally and permanently disabled then you can recover up to a maximum of 500 weeks of compensation. There are some exceptions to that general rule (i.e. brain injury, paralysis, etc.). However, in a permanent and total disability case you may have to hire a vocation expert, get the doctor's to dot the "I" and cross the "t" properly.See question
My husband was injured at work almost a year ago. He has had the same lawyer throughout. We never feel like we know what is going on with his case. For instance- About 6 weeks ago we sat down with him for the 1St time because we had questions. We ...
Short answer yes. I always encourage clients to try and work out their issues with lawyer first but if not then, you retain the absolute right to select a lawyer.
As for the fee. Your share is the 2/3 minus any costs. If there was an offer extended then your new lawyer may have to share fee with previous lawyer. You won't ha e to pay 1/3 to each though.See question
