This may fall undr Personal Injury more than family law
... My 52 year old brother was hit by a car while riding a bicycle through an intersection and permanently disabled. Beyond numerous physical handicaps he has a severe TBI. As such, my parents secured guardianship
( I think). Whe I ask who is representing my brother in the injury case, they won't tell me, and when asked if there have been any hearings in the last year, they say that their attorney is "researching" the matter.
My issue nd concern is as follows: my father is in his 80's and when he passes, my brother will be my only blood relative left. I am concerned that about his future, and how he will be cared for.
Can I bring suit against the individual that hit him on his behalf?
If my father is now guardian, settled with the insurance company out of court and will not share the information with me, what will happen to my brother once he passes away? 1. 1. How can I find out what arrangements have been made for my brother? If a settlement was reached outside of court, a trust was established and provisions have been made to care for my brother after my father passes, this is all I need to know.
2. Can I bring another suit against the individual that disabled him if my parents have a settled a case? For example, I lost my brother because of this accident, his brain injuries are so extensive that he will never live outside of a hospital setting. I would like to ensure any settlement proceeds from this suit go toward his ongoing medical care.
The accident occurred in Ohio, April, 2011.
