William John Light's answer By your own admission your parents spent the inheritance on private school and your college tuition. How can you say you have "never seen the money"? You got the money. It was invested in your education. Unless there is something left over, it sounds like your parents acted responsibly.

Timur Akpinar's answer There really isn't such a formula or rule of thumb that can readily be applied in every case across the board. Each case has to be evaluated individually on the basis of the respective liabilities of the parties, the injuries (particularly in terms of their long term impact - considering partial or permanent disability), pain and suffering, and other elements related to how the accident impacts one's life. These are only a few factors; there are others as well. If you want to gather the...
Timur Akpinar's answer As a starting point, you could contact an injury attorney in Montana to review and evaluate the details of the accident and your injuries. In these types of cases, recent dental history could become relevant. If the attorney you contact feels there is a viable case to move forward with, it would be helpful to readily have contact information available for the dentist(s) who saw you prior to the accident.
Timur Akpinar's answer You could possibly have a claim. You could consult with an attorney, who would likely want additional details about how the accident took place and whether you sustained injuries.
Ecleynne Mercy's answer A death certificate serves as evidence only of (1) the death itself and (2) the immediate agency (reason) of the death. Other conclusions, such as those regarding the events leading up to the death or whether the cause of death was intentional or accidental, are not admissible. Swanson v. State, 216 Ga. App. 1, 453 S.E.2d 78 (1994)
Ashley VanCleef's answer Bullying should be taken very seriously by schools. It is important to report and document the bullying on the school bullying and reporting forms. The laws vary by states but Federal guidance can be found here https://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ocr/frontpage/pro-students/issues/roi-issue06.html. If the bullying is based upon the student's disability, race, sex, color, or national origin, be sure to indicate as such in the report to the school system.
William John Light's answer You need a NorCal attorney. He may have a claim for Elder Abuse, violation of the Unruh Act, assault/battery. He might also have nothing. These disputes are always hard to unravel who is at fault. It is worth exploring.
Jeffrey N. Berman's answer I am sorry you are going through this. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your accident, you may have a personal injury claim. You may be entitled to compensation for the costs of your medical care, your lost income, and and for your pain and suffering. If you have not done so already, obtain medical care to evaluate and treat your injuries. Then contact a personal injury attorney. Escalator accidents are common, and they are usually captured by surveillance cameras. However, the...
William John Light's answer You are well past the statute of limitations for something that happened 40 years ago. In California, a medical malpractice lawsuit must be filed no later than three years after the date of injury or one year after the plaintiff discovers, or through the use of reasonable diligence should have discovered, the injury (whichever occurs first). Code of Civil Procedure section 340.5. leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/codes_displaySection.xhtml?lawCode=CCP§ionNum=340.5
Ross Diamond III's answer The plaintiff in the case does have a right to issue subpoenas for your medical records, particularly those that relate to the accident. They can probably also obtain records covering all treatment you have had for a year or two before the accident. Your attorney can object and ask for a court ruling as to any records that are not relevant to the case.

Timur Akpinar's answer You could consult with a Tennessee attorney as to the merits of such a case. The attorney would likely want to know the injuries you suffered, particularly if there was permanence. Based on the damages at hand, you and your attorney could discuss whether it would be viable to pursue the matter.
