    Nadia’s Answer

    You will have to speak with an attorney who handles "Negligent Security" cases. This is a very specialized area of personal injury and not every personal injury lawyer has experience in this area. Best wishes on your case.

  • What to do from here?

    This afternoon my husband stepped wrong going down our stairs and injured his left foot. At our neighbors, instance we went to the ER to having him checked out only to be told that he has a sprain. They only took an x-ray and when asked how they c...

    Nadia’s Answer

    It is unfortunate to hear about your husband's injuries. However, on the facts as presented, it is unclear what caused your husband's fall. You stated that he stepped wrong going down your stairs. Liability generally happens when the owner of the premises or in this case the stairs, knew or should have known of a problem and didn't fix it. For example, if the stair was broken and the landlord failed to fix it for some time, then you could talk to a personal injury attorney in Reno to discuss your husband's case in more detail. Best wishes.

    Nadia’s Answer

    You need to talk to a lawyer who handles dental malpractice cases. This is a very specialized type of case and not all personal injury attorneys handle it. There is a one-year statue of limitations and a medical doctor will have to sign off on it as well. But after you speak with an experienced dental malpractice lawyer they will be able to advise you whether or not you have a case.

  • What's goin on here, am I being screwed by everyone? I'm not some idiot that just accepts what they tell me and hope I go away.

    Nadia’s Answer

    • Selected as best answer

    Since you did not sign off on the settlement disbursements, you should talk to your lawyer about their office working on getting your liens reduced and corrections made to your medical bills, since they are charging you for a Medicare bill when you don't have Medicare. If that fails, you can always contact the Fee Dispute Resolution Department of the State Bar of Nevada. They frequently resolve disputes involving fees.
