Legally, you have 3 years to file a lawsuit, but it is not a good idea to wait that long. Once you know the extent of your injuries, you should move forward with trying to resolve your case. After that, time that goes by usually does you harm rather than good.See question
I was involved in a head-on collision where the other driver made an unsafe left turn in front of the car I was a passenger in and as a result had a concussion, dislocated hips and a partial miscarriage, which I then had to go for a procedure to h...
Their offer is insulting. They are taking advantage of you because you are not represented by an attorney. They try this tactic every time. Your case is worth much, much more than what they have offered. My best advice is to find an attorney who has extensive trial experience, because even though most cases settle before court, you want someone who knows how to take it all the way if necessary.See question

The insurance company is misleading you. A minor can get more compensation, just like an adult. As to how much you should ask for, that depends on many factors which need to be discussed. Please give a local attorney a call. JimSee question
What firm should I look into? Can provide more details later, but just wanted some simple answers on here.
You very well may have a viable case. It helps if you have proof of eating there, like a credit card receipt or bill, and if someone ate with you. Did anyone else you know also get sick? Food poisoning cases require an attorney with special knowledge. Please find someone local to you, who has such experience. I have tried e coli cases to verdict. JimSee question

For an injury of this significance, insurance companies will not treat you fairly unless you are represented by an attorney. You can try to negotiate your case with them, but you will never get fair value. Your only viable option is to hire an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
I was T-boned in May 2014. Other driver was sited for negligent driving and his insurance has accepted all responsibility. Due to my (soft tissue) injuries, I had to attend physical therapy for a few months (17 appointments total) and massage ther...
An unrepresented person will always get nickel-and-dimed by the carrier. You have a right to more compensation that they are telling you. You should look for a qualified attorney who has extensive trial experience, as that is always a sign that the attorney is a mad-dog.See question
I tripped and fell and been hospitalized for the last 4 months and I have a bed sore on from the hospital not turning me myself it enough
You may very well have a case that an attorney can help you with. It depends entirely on what you tripped on.
Also, a bed sore is often caused by neglect/negligence, and that may be something the hospital could be held responsible for, too.
I handle both trip and fall cases and bedsore cases. You want an attorney who has experience with both.
Is 1 million dollars an appropriate settlement for sexual assault?
It could be. It depends on the extent of the assault, of course. JimSee question

I believe you have a valid nursing home abuse/neglect case. I see far too much of this happen in nursing homes and most of it just gets swept under the rug and no one is ever held accountable. Please call an attorney and find out what your rights are. JimSee question

If so, you can get attorney's fees and costs from them as well as your actual damages. You should contact an attorney who specializes in nursing home cases.See question
