My child’s father consented to her being papoose’d at the next appointment that I’d be taking her to at the dentist during her initial visit. I set the appointments up and spoke to the receptionist the entire process leading up to her appointments. I was not made aware by the office, dentist... View More
A local attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks.

My nurses didn't do this, and I formed a blood clot that caused me to hemorrhage pretty badly. I believe it was... View More

I am representing myself in a personal injury lawsuit in Montgomery County Indiana. A mediation settlement agreement was reached between me and the defendant. I am unsure of what documents needs to be filed if any with the court. Thank you.
An Indiana attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week.

The facts that you provide are not sufficient to provide a meaningful response. It is absolutely true that waiting two months to secure medical care is usually fatal to your claim. That said, you know the old expression "it depends."
An Indiana attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. It depends more on the manner in which the accident occurred and how the scooter was operated.

You don't give us a lot to go on so I'll begin at the beginning. Personal injury attorneys work on a contingency which means that they do not get paid unless they win. Regardless of the reason, if witnesses are claiming that you are responsible for an accident, a judge, jury, or...View More
You must be able to prove that the repair shop was responsible for placing the razor blade on your seat.
