San Diego Personal Injury Attorney Mark C. Blane Avvo.com Answers To Legal QuestionsQ: I hit a teenage girl with my truck. She ran into traffic. I have witnesses and police reports. Her parents are suing.: My insurance company says I may be over my limit. And need an attorney. It was clearly not my fault. Do I need to worry. Posted 5 months ago in Car Accident
A: Mark's answer: Your insurance company should have assigned counsel to defend and indemnify you. Your questions leave little facts for me to analyze further; however, if you have witnesses indicating she ran in front of you and you had no time to react, then you should be fine. Review the police report for witness statements, and what the police officer concluded. Assuming he did not witness the accident, review how he came to any conclusions on the issue of fault, if any. If everything supports your version of events, you should be fine. Posted by a user, 5 months ago.
Q: Can I sue a theme park if I slip on wet stairs and sustain a leg injury and what information would I need to have?: The stairs were outside it had just started raining. We were in a tent and I was not going to leave until the rain had stopped. A BG security guard told us we had to leave the tent. The stairs were like sheets of ice and I slipped twice one time at the top and another time grabbing onto both handrails and slipped to the bottom of the stairs.

A: Mark's answer: In order to obtain liability in a slip and fall case, you need to prove the at-fault party had notice of the dangerous condition, failed to remedy it, had control and dominion in terms of allowing the condition to exist, and the hazard was not easily seen or known by you. Here, it was due to rain, and these cases can be very tough to prove. Also, you do not indicate from your question if you were injured; if no injury, or damages, then generally no case.

Q: how long do you have to file a malpractice case: I had a hip replacement in 2008 and was given penicillin which highly allergic doctor said nurse did not read my chart and since then I have respiratory failure Posted 5 months ago in Medical Malpractice
A: Mark's answer: Most of the time the statute of limitations clock starts running the first time you have enough notice of your potential claim. Thus, you will need to get as exact as possible as to when the nurse read your chart, and when you formulated in your mind a possible claim for negligence, or malpractice. Each State can be different in terms of Statute of Limitations. Since more facts are needed from your question, you should consult with a qualified personal injury attorney in your State. I recommend you do this as soon as possible.
