When I was 16 years old I fell down the stairs of the current college I attend. When I filed a report with public safety , I was told the janitor admitted that the Floor was wet and she did not leave a sign because she was going to get cleaning su...
Your mother could have pursued the claim for your injuries from your fall while you were a minor, however, as an an adult you would have been able to pursue the claim yourself up until two years after the age of majority, so I believe the stature of limitations would have already expired, given the facts which you provided. the potential medical
malpractice case is also filled with problems, and the time to pursue that claim may have also expired, but I would suggest you discuss the facts and evidence with a quailed medical malpractice attorney.
I was in a car accident, and was injured. The other guy ran a red light and broadsided my car. I have a broken wrist that may need surgery.
Whether you have a case is dependent upon whether the other driver was negligent, and the percentage of negligence, in causing the car accident. Based upon the facts that you provided, the other driver is certainly negligent and more negligent then you, so you should have a case to be able to pursue against the other driver and his insurance company, Your not having a valid driver's license, although it may result in a ticket to you, has no bearing on the negligence in the car accident, so your not having a driver's license will not prevent you from making a claim. I would recommend contacting a Milwaukee attorney rated by AVVO with a 10.0 rating to assist you in pursuing your case for your injuries and damages, including your vehicle damage, your medical bills, any lost income, and your pain and suffering.See question
I purchased a sub from Pick and Save last night for dinner, after a few hours I became very very sick, I'm still sick today. I think I have food poisoning. The lettuce on the sub that was left uneaten is black and dark green. Can I sue? I called t...
Food poisoning cases are difficult to prove. You will generally need medical proof that you have the food poisoning and then proof of where you obtained the tainted food. I always recommend reporting it to the store, in addition to your local Health Department. They will generally investigate the business and determine any health issues. They are also a source of establishing causation to the particular business, especially if others also make a similar complaint. Note that in Wisconsin, there is a three year statute of limitations to either settle your potential claims or start a lawsuit for your potential damages.See question

It is always best to consult with a qualified personal injury attorney, by phone or in person, to find out all of your rights and to explore what the attorney can do for you to insure a full monetary recovery for your injuries and damages. Having practice personal injury law for more than 30 years, I have seen too many individuals accept a settlement such as this, only to have longer term problems and not get fully compensated. Do not agree to any settlement for your injury claim at this point.See question

I already was awarded the max liability from the defendant's car insurance. But it still doesn't cover my cost of injury. Can I also go after their house, car and 401K?
You need to be very careful about how you proceed and what release or papers you sign with the insurance company offering the policy limit of liability coverage. Signing the wrong release or documents may release other potential parties or insurance companies from further payments. An experienced personal injury/accident attorney can determine what other sources of recovery might be available for you to pursue, including underinsured motorist coverage, potential umbrella policies of coverage, other liability insurance policies. That attorney will also insure that anything you sign does not release other claims. Often the insurance company which is offering you money will protect its insured by including them as a released party, in return for them paying you money. Please consult with an experienced attorney before you accept any settlement or sign any papers. Best of luck to you.See question
My 20-year-old daughter was hit by a car at 2 AM. Fortunately , She only sustained a minor head injury however her medical bills will be large due to a CAT scan, MRI, ambulance ride, along with 9 prominent stitches in her forehead. She will carry ...
I am sorry to hear about your daughter's accident and injuries. The accident report, along with statements from witnesses will be crucial to determining fault for this accident. It is unclear from your post whether your daughter stepped into the street against the traffic light or if she technically had the right of way. It would be best to discuss the facts with an experienced personal injury attorney in the area. Wisconsin utilizes the concept of comparative negligence, therefore, fault may be attributable to both your daughter and the vehicle driver.See question

I would certainly not agree to any settlement yet, until you and your son finish any necessary treatment and have a better understanding about the amount of your bills, any lost wages, and most importantly your pain and suffering. You should not settle until your injuries are completely resolved. Insurance companies will often offer some money early on in an attempt to convince people to settle, before they should really be in a position to do so. Experienced personal injury attorneys will be able to tell you stories where this tactic has hurt clients and affected their getting full compensation for their injuries. I would suggest that you speak with one or more experienced personal injury attorneys in Milwaukee to discuss the issues, your injuries and care, and give you advice as to how to proceed and whether they could get involved to help you maximize your recovery for your injuries and damages. Experienced personal injury attorneys are usually able to help clients obtain larger settlements than individuals may be able to obtain on their own, and most will work on a contingency fee basis, so that it costs you nothing to retain the attorney until the case is concluded, and then the attorney fees are paid from the eventual settlement proceeds. Contact local experienced personal injury attorneys with a 10 ratings by AVVO and speak with one of the partners in the practice, if possible. Best of luck and my best for a complete recovery for you and your son.See question
Incident happened in Racine, WI but do not want to deal with that police department.
I am very sorry for your loss. These types of cases are very complicated and you need to consult wtih an experienced civil rights attorney. . If a claim is going to be pursued against the City of Racine, for actions by its police officers, your son'a heirs and the Special Administrator of your son's estate will need to file a Notice of Injury or Circumstances form, pursuant to Section 893.80(1d)(a), Wis. Stats., with the City of Racine City Clerk's Office, within 120 days of the incident, in order to put them on notice of any potential state law claims which might be brougth against them in the future. Please be aware that there is a three-year statute of limitations in Wisconsin, should you pursue any state law claims against the City and police officers, and there is a six-year statute of limitations, should you pursue any federal law claims against the City and police officers for any federal civil rights claims. The statute of limitations time periods require that any settlements be accomplished or lawsuits be filed within those time periods. Under the laws passed last year, the State of Wisconsin, Department of Justice, Division of Criminal Investigation is responsible for investigating this incident and then providing thier report and findings to the District Attorney for his review and a decision on any criminal charges to be issued. if no criminal charges are issued against the police officers, the report is to be released to the family, along with information as to what other actions may be brought. Also, the US Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, will consider reviewing the case for any potential Federal Criminal Ciivil Rights charges against the police officers. You should be able to obtain the Medical Examiner's Autopsy report and you can make an Open Records rewuest to obtain the investigation materials from DCI and the Racine Police Department. Given the complications of these cases, an experienced civil rights attorney can give you further explanations about this process.See question
