Legal Answers
Q. I've told a law firm I no I don't need there service. They keep asking me to sign a contract and won't stop
A: I agree with Dale Gribow's answer below. Your current attorney should be contacting the firm for you and should be able to answer any questions like this in the future.
Q. Is a two year non elective surgical postponement grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit for a SSDI senior.
A: There are not enough facts listed to determine if this is a viable medical malpractice case. The torn right patellar tendon needs to be the result of malpractice or the breach of standard of care. Another medical provider would need to have the opinion that it is malpractice before the lawsuit could be successful. As Eliza Jasinska said, there are time limits on when a malpractice suit can be filed. This really does need to be discussed with an experienced malpractice attorney. You may need to look outside of your city to find an attorney willing to take your case or speak with you.
Q. Can I talk to the defendant directly and agree on a settlement to get payment? And how?
A: You will likely need to get in contact with the defendant's attorney. While the defendant is the individual who hit you, usually he/she will be represented by an attorney that works for the insurance company. If your attorney has substituted out of the case and you are now listed as representing yourself, you can contact the other attorney. If your attorney is still counsel of record in the case, the defense attorney will not talk to you directly until a substitution of attorney is filed listing you as pro per (i.e., representing yourself).
