Q: 

I filed a discrimination lawsuit against my employer with EEOC last Fall and somehow my case got closed without my awareness because I moved to live in another state and so I did not receive some of the mails that were sent to me. Anyhow, can I have my case reopened with EEOC again? Is there a statue of limitations to reopened this case with EEOC? If I want to file a lawsuit in the federal court regarding this discrimination suit, do I need to get EEOC''s permission? Since EEOC already closed my case and I must have missed the deadline to file in the federal court, can I still file in the federal court in this situation? Thank you.

A:  Since you had a pending case with the EEOC, you are required to keep them notified of any changes in contact information. If you did not do this, you might be out of luck. When did EEOC issue the right to sue letter?...

Q: 

The adjuster for the other driver''s car insurance company does not agree with my lawyer?s estimate of damages. Does that mean I have to file a lawsuit now?

A:  The adjuster for the other party’s insurance company has the power to settle claims. The adjuster estimates the value of a claim based on the type of injury, medical bills, lost wages, prognosis for recovery and any other future expenses you might have because of your injury. If your lawyer disagrees on the value of the claim and negotiations fail to reach a compromise you can live with, you may have to file a lawsuit against the other driver. That does not necessarily mean your case will go to trial. It means that the adjuster must turn the case over to an attorney who will represent the other party. However, the adjuster still holds the purse strings. The other side''s attorney will evaluate the case, tell the adjuster what he or...

Q: 

How quickly must I file a lawsuit if I?m injured in a bicycle accident? If a minor was also injured?

A:  You must file suit before the legal time runs out. There is no grace period. These deadlines are not negotiable. Each state has a statute of limitations, which restricts the length of time that may pass between the date of injury and the date by which your case must be filed. In some states, that statute is one year from the date of injury; in other states, it is two years or more. If you file a lawsuit beyond the applicable statute of limitations, the defendant can demur (that is, file a pleading that basically says, ''So what? The plaintiff waited too long and now recovery is barred by law''). In addition to the defense of the applicable statute of limitations, a...

Q: 

How much time do I have after a trucking accident to file a lawsuit? What if a minor child was injured?

A:  Every state has time limits, contained in ''statutes of limitation,'' which control the amount of time you have to file a personal injury lawsuit. If you miss the deadline for filing your case, you claim may be dismissed. The clock may begin to run either after the crash or after you learn of your injuries, and may be a number of months or years. To learn how much time you have to file your suit, contact an attorney at once who will review the timing deadline that applies in your case. When a minor child is involved in a trucking accident, the time period for filing the lawsuit may be extended. In some states, the time period in which to file a

Q: 

How quickly must I file a lawsuit? If a minor is involved, does the time period change?

A:  The time limitations for filing traumatic brain injury lawsuits vary from state to state. This time limitation (referred to as ?the statute of limitations?) is usually one or two years in a brain injury case, but depending on the circumstances, the period of time may be longer or shorter. For example, in many states, an injured child has a longer amount of time to file a lawsuit (sometimes up to the age of 18). Or if a government entity (a post office, for example) caused the injury, the time for filing a claim may be as short as 180 days. Because of the short statutes of limitation in brain injury lawsuits, it is always a good idea to contact a lawyer right when you suspect your injury has...

Q: 

We have spent almost 2 years going back and forth with our insurance company about who is responsible for the mold problem in our house. Is it too late to file a lawsuit against all the possible responsible parties, including our own insurer?

A:  Every state has a statute of limitations, which is commonly from one to three years from the date the problem is discovered. If your state has a one year statute of limitations, that means you only have one year to file a lawsuit. After that, your claim will be completely barred. When facing a mold claim, all of the potentially responsible parties will usually blame each other and point fingers. Your insurance carrier may deny coverage rather than resolve the situation and maybe even intentionally ?drag its feet? with the intention of letting the statute of limitations lapse. This is when filing a lawsuit may be your only option to move forward, and you want to make sure as soon as possible...

Q: 

What can I do to pay for my neck injury treatment, short of filing a lawsuit?

A:  You do not have to file a lawsuit to submit a claim for accident-related injury treatment. If someone else was at fault in an accident that caused your neck injury, you or an attorney can help make sure your no-fault auto insurance or health insurance is paying for your treatment and can keep track of your treatment, expenses, wage loss and potential on-going symptoms. Your attorney can also contact the other driver?s insurance company on your behalf and make sure it is aware of a potential claim for damages in the future. If you are entitled to additional damages at some point ? such as financial compensation for permanent injury, pain and suffering, humiliation and or emotional distress ? you will have protected your rights and left...

Q: 

Can I file a lawsuit for having a faulty defibrillator?

A:  Yes. Initially, Guidant indicated they would not cover the recall defibrillator replacements of more than five years old since they are off-warranty, but on the heels of the recent deaths attributed to the faulty defibrillators, Guidant has since changed their position. In fact, with the costs estimated at $25,000 per unit for each replacement defibrillator, Guidant could be facing compensation costs of as much as $225 million....
