Q: 

How can I file a claim against my employer for an unpaid sales commission?

A:  If you are unable to resolve a claim against your employer for an unpaid sales commission informally, you should contact an experienced employment lawyer for advice in obtaining your sales commission. While relatively small amounts of unpaid commissions may be recoverable on your own in small claims court, larger unpaid sales commissions may require litigation with the assistance of an attorney. You may also want to consult with your state or federal department of labor regarding any specific statutes that might support your claim for unpaid sales commissions. ...

Q: 

How do I file a lawsuit Against my Doctor?

A:  You may be able to file a lawsuit, but it will depend largely on the level of injury and suffering caused by your doctors failure to diagnose your heart condition. It seems strange that you would have to wait until you had a heart attack, but the fact that you saw another doctor and are pursuing treatment may actually mean a suit is not economical, if not unwarranted. Similar to the way car accident laws work, your doctor essentially broke the ''rules'' by not treating you properly, just as if he had run a red light. However, since you avoided serious injury by seeing another doctor in time, there may not be any significant damages for which to seek compensation. This is very much like the driver of a car being negligent by running a red...

Q: 

Can i file a lawsuit against a hospital for a blood clot?

A:  An attorney overseeing your medical malpractice case would certainly consider filing suit against negligent parties that contributed to the damages you experienced and continue to experience.  This would include both financial costs related to the blood clot treatment and prolonged medical treatment.  Additionally, claims for your continued pain and inhibited mobility are also very real and relevant damage claims in your case. The crux of any legal action will center on the negligence in the hospital and their healthcare professionals to diagnose the blood clot within a sufficient and reasonable period of time.  Only an attorney looking into the specific nature of your case will be able to determine this, but from what you stated above, it appears that the clot should have been checked...

Can I file a lawsuit against the driver at fault in a no-fault state?

A:  Minnesota is a no-fault insurance state. This means that it is unnecessary forthe driver not at fault to prove the other party’s fault in order to receivemoney for medical expenses, such as rehabilitation, and for lost wages.Personal Injury Protection, or PIP, is part of an insurance policy in ano-fault state. The insurance company of the party not at fault pays for the medicalexpenses under the conditions of PIP. The tradeoff of receiving compensation without a lengthylegal battle with the other party’s insurance provider is that the injuredparty may not sue the party at fault for pain and suffering or emotionaldistress unless certain conditions are prevalent. In certain circumstances, aninjured person may sue the other driver if the medical expenses exceed aspecific monetary threshold....

I bought a product that caused an injury. I had to seek medical help. Can I file a lawsuit against the manufacturer?

A:  Thereare a variety of possible legal remedies available when you are injured by aproduct. The first issue you need to address is how you were injured.

If the injury is the result of a design flaw or a commondefect, then there may already be a class action underway in which a group ofinjured people are suing the parties responsible for...

Q: 

Can I file a lawsuit against a hospital for an anesthesia error?

A:  Yes, an error in anesthesia can be grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit. Whether the hospital can be held liable depends on the circumstances of the error. It may be the fault of the anesthesiologist, for failing to properly monitor the oxygen flow to your wife during her procedure. In general, medical malpractice lawsuits are only successful if there was negligence that lead to the injury to the patient. For example, if the anesthesiologist made a mistake in the mix of chemicals used that caused hypoxia or anoxia, leading to braind damgage, then he or she may be held responsible to pay for all the resulting damages. Alternatively, if the operating room was not properly supplied, and the oxygen was depleted before the procedure was...

Q: 

I have a repairable vehicle that the insurance company for the person that hit me is only willing to pay half of the repair value and total the car. Can I file a suit against the other driver for the difference to get my car repaired. Also, their evaluation is about half of the Kelley blue book value. So I have to take their settlement offer without recourse ?

A:  Basically, you cannot get more than the car''s market value. So, if the repair value exceeds the market value, as in your case, you cannot force the other driver or his insurance company to pay you more than market value. If the insurance company is low-balling you on its offer, you can sue for fair market value. It may be too expensive to hire an attorney, so you might want to consider filing in JP Court if your total damages do not exceed $10,000....
