Legal Answers
44 Questions Answered
Q. Can a lawyer review my personal injury case that my lawyer refused to take to trial?
A: I'm not sure what you mean by review, but if you mean hire a new attorney - yes you can. Attorneys differ in opinions, but the fact that your first attorney did not want to take the case to trial is a red flag for any new attorneys. I'd recommend that you consult with an attorney licensed to practice law in Florida and who regularly handles personal injury cases.
Q. My son has worked for McDonalds for 20+ years, was in car wreck- totaled car for McDonald errand. Doesn’t have full ins
A: Since it your seems to have been the one to have caused the accident (unless there was something that the semi-truck did wrong), I don't think your son would have a successful personal injury case verses the semi-truck. Hopefully, your son has bodily injury (BI) protection, which is what the semi-truck driver will go after. If he does, his insurance should represent him in that claim. What your son should be doing is filing for workers' compensation, which covers you when you're hurt at work and provides a percentage of lost wages while out of work and medical care. Hopefully, he's reported this accident to his employer within 30 days of the accident, which is required. His employer may argue that he wasn't working at the time, but a personal errand for your employer can be covered. More information will be needed, but, in my opinion, work comp is the way to go for your son. Unfortunately, his car being totaled isn't something covered under work comp though. I'd highly recommend that your son consult with an attorney licensed to practice law in Florida and who regularly handles workers' compensation cases.
Q. A shelf in my apartment kitchen pantry fell hit me in my right leg and caused a blood clot to form. Can I sue?
A: Yes, you can sue. The real question is what, if anything, will you recover? A lot more information is needed to determine how much you may get if successful or if you may even be successful. Remember, there's something called comparative negligence, which reduces your recovery (if you go to court) by your own percentage of fault. The value of your case is based on damages including the cost of past and future medical care, past and future lost wages, pain and suffering, etc. There's no doubt that liability (fault) will be a hot topic on your case as well. I'd highly recommend that you consult with an attorney licensed to practice law in Florida and who regularly handles premises liability personal injury cases.
