You cannot sue. Your mother may be able to sue, based on product liability. She would need to meet with an attorney who has experience with such cases, as they are very complex, time consuming, and expensive. Taking on the pharmaceutical industry, and winning, is not easy.

Why have you waited so long? ?Normally, you must file a claim for an on the job injury within one year of the injury or the date of the last providing of benefits. There are some exceptions, but you do not provide enough information for me to know if you qualify. ?If your employer knew you had an injury, he was supposed to file paperwork. ?You need to immediately go to some local Workers' Compensation applicant's attorneys to see if they can do anything for you. ?There will be no charge unless you hire them....

After 4 years can I file a workers comp case? How?

Answered 3 years and 7 months ago by attorney Thomas C. Bulman   |   7 Answers   |  Legal Topics: Personal Injury
The four year old injury is probably dead. In Montana, an injured worker has 30 days to report an injury to a supervisor and one year to file a written claim for compensation. If your job slowly caused degeneration and aggravation as you continued working, but now it is too serious to ignore, you may qualify for occupational disease coverage. Harms that a job causes over more than a single day fall into this category. Call the Department of Labor in Helena and file an OD claim. Don't use the old injury date because you apparently continued working so that injury must have been stable. The new OD is why you need medical treatment now.... Read More

Are you sure you didn't file a worker's comp case? You said you have been to several doctors (the employer doesn't send you to a dr) How are your medical bills being paid?

Workers Comp. has become a highly specialised area of law. Locate a lawyer who practices this area of law, and ask him or her. To find such a lawyer, you can try the net (e.g. Avvo.com and other such sites), the yellow pages, or the lawyer referral service of your state bar.

Me and my girlfriend got into a hit and run car accident, how much should we get?

Answered 3 years and 7 months ago by attorney Erven T. Nelson   |   1 Answer   |  Legal Topics: Personal Injury
That depends on a lot of factors. For soft tissue injuries, insurance companies are getting much more strict in Nevada. We try to get up to 3 times the value of the cost of the medical treatments and prescriptions, but lately it has been harder to get that amount. It also depends on whether there are lingering injuries or disabilities, lost employment, etc. Make sure that you do not settle too soon, particularly before you have finished all treatments, visits, procedures, medications, etc. You will probably get more if you hire an experienced lawyer. Let me know if you need a referral in your town.... Read More

I do not understand your question. If he settled the case, the case is settled and the other party can no longer maintain a civil suit in any state.

I do not see any claims against DCSS, as they were only doing their job and likely have immunity for that. However, you may have a claim against the woman who named you as the likely father. Remember, DCSS didn't pull your name out of a hat . . . they were told you were the father and went from there. Your claim isn't worth much for a couple of reasons. First, you did not suffer any tangible damages. Second, the woman who named you may not have the resources to pay any claims and this is not something that her insurance would cover.... Read More

I m not aware of any law that prohibits a bail company from making a referral. However, there are ethics prohibitions against an attorney soliciting you as a client. You can report that attorney to the state bar. You should probably have a new attorney lined up before you go that route.

Is there a way to sue or file a complaint against a DA?

Answered 4 years and 4 months ago by attorney Erven T. Nelson   |   1 Answer   |  Legal Topics: Personal Injury
I am very sorry for your loss. Only the State, through the DA's office, can decide what charge or charges to bring against a defendant. The Judge can sentence the defendant to more time than the DA recommended, up to the maximum allowed, but cannot change the charges. There is nothing you can do regarding the criminal prosecution other than complain to the head District Attorney. That won?t change anything on the criminal case. You can, of course, sue the defendant for monetary damages for wrongful death. This is what happened in the O.J. Simpson case. After the jury acquitted him in the criminal case, the victim's family sued him in a civil matter and got a reward of millions of dollars. It won't bring your son back, but might bring you some satisfaction.... Read More

Can I sue a restaurant for serving me uncooked chicken ?

Answered 4 years and 5 months ago by attorney Erven T. Nelson   |   2 Answers   |  Legal Topics: Personal Injury
For a personal injury lawsuit, you need to establish negligence (fault) and damages. From the facts you have given, you can easily prove negligence. But, unless you get sick enough to require medical attention leading to expenses, it will be very difficult to establish damages. If you don't get sick, count yourself lucky. If you get sick, seek medical attention and keep copies of all the bills.... Read More
