I was injured while on a Trampoline. I signed a waiver before I was injured do I still have rights?
Not enough information here. The language of the waiver is important, and the manner in which you were hurt is important. Generally, a waiver of liability may be valid if the manner in which you are injured is a result of the very activity contemplated at the time the waiver is signed.
If I had an injury from an accident. I was very un happy with the settlement amount. Can I reopen it for more damages.
The likely answer here is no. Once you consent to settle, it creates a mutual agreement, like a contract. Once you sign a Release of All Claims, likely the contract is binding.
Can i sue my wifes former employer for loss of consortium do to her broken hip she sustained at work?
Likely no, but it depends on how the injury occurred. If your wife is limited to workers compensation, then your limitations are most probably no greater in scope.
If i was involved in a slip and fall over three months ago can i persue a case still if i am developing pain from the incident?
Yes. Typically, the statute of limitations in AZ is 2 years from the date of injury. There maybe a shorter statute of limitations. You should consult with an attorney to be safe here.
I don't feel like my attorney is fighting for me or my rights? What can I do?
In AZ, you are not required to stay with an attorney. Just as an attorney is not required to continue to represent you in certain circumstances. You can always consult with another attorney. Often, these consultations are free.
How do I go about collecting damages from a recent car accident?A claim will have to be made to an insurance company somewhere. This is never a short, simple answer, as every case is different. Consult an attorney regarding your case.
