In November, my Son's wife and children were struck by a red

In November, my Son's wife and children were struck by a red light runner. Pamela was killed, Little Audrey, (1yr.4 months, suffered a TBI, and 3 year old Ryan had multiple fractures and his right arm has plates, and is two inches shorter. ) Both are getting therapy and Ryan will need another surgery. There was a ton of pain and suffering and there will be financial hardship. The man responsible has a long record of DUI and other crimes, but has paid fines and kept up. He was driving on a suspended license, no insurance, owner of car, no insurance. Yesterday, the County Attorney presented case and there were no laws in AZ to make this a felony. It goes back to the City of Chandler for some Mis-Demeaner charges. Some people have suggested we bring a civil case against the Man responsible to at least make him aware he has really made some terrible choices and whatever financial help for these children with possible long term disability and loosing their mother. My question is, does this sound like a civil case issue and if so what king of attorney does Matt need. Thank You carol markov Mom and Grandmom to Matt and these children.JA: What state is this in? And can you tell me a little more about the charge?Customer: Arizona. The laws here are weak for red light runner. So all we have is red light running and driving with a suspended license. Because of the mans background and comments like "Did I hit Something" It is outrageous to us. But judge decided yesterday, According to AZ law there is no felony....JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Ploice report We have not done anything They said yesterday, that these charges go back to the city.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Pamela was an equal family supporter. Now income will be almost cut in half and Matt still has child care costs. Audrey, is regaining her talking and walking skills, but with TBI we will not know what residual injury there is as she is a baby.

He has exhausted all of his administrative rights for the grievances prior to the current situation. Can anything be done for these situations if he doesn't make it thru surgery?

My Mother died at st. Joseph's Hospital in savannah, GA She

My Mother died at st. Joseph's Hospital in savannah, GA She had been taken to the ER at 3 AM because she couldn't breathe well and was confused, which was not a normal state for her.The first ER Doctor who saw said she had the flu and would either make it or not. I am quoting him. No one came to check on her for hours. I went to the nurse's desk at least ten times in those hours. Her blood pressure was very low and the EKG machine was beeping.This is when an orderlie comes to tell us her room is ready. She was aware of where she ws and what was happening. The orderlie unhooks her from all machines excepther catheter. She codes Blue in the elevator. My belief is that she should not have been moved until she was stabilized. I want the records but they told me I had to go to their Ethics Committee.Please advise.Patricia Wagnerher

My husband passed away in 2009. He had an accidental life

My husband passed away in 2009. He had an accidental life insurance policy. The company denied the claim due to "Natural Cause". However, I files suit against the company due to the fact he was in deep water on a drill ship. He complained for two days with chest pain to the medic with documented visits and was not sent to a hospital for further examining. Furthermore, they were an EKG machine right there on the rig, just inches from him. This was and still is their policy. He passed away two days later. I filed suit and won the law suit in 2010 in Metairie La. and won the law suit. Does this not constitute wrongful death? The company admits through my winning the suit, liability. My husband's name was Larry E. Padgett and died on 06-01-2009. The court records are viewable online. Thanks, ***** ***** StringerJA: Can you tell me what state this is in? And do you have copies of the medical records?Customer: Mississippi. I got copies of the autopsy report. They are many reports of experts available in the law suit. They were no medical reports prior to his death. Just your basic family doctor visitsJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Like what?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No mam

I left my husband in 2009 and moved to fla he is in Ilinois. In Oct 2015 I made arrangments to go back to get our jointly owned car. He said it was good no problems. In around April of 2016 the brake line broke the shop refused to repair it. said it was a death trap the underside was rusted in half and he knew this because there was a place that a bar was welded on. I ask him for $2000.00 to get another car. I told him i would pay him back starting tax time . around July he told me I didnt have to pay him back now he wants his money. I told him I would start making payments and I did there was no agreement on how I would pay He now says hes going to take me to small claims court. We were divorced in late August 2016. It wasnt cheap for me to go get that car I feel I have been cheated . Can he take me to court? hes going to ask for attorney fees and court costs.
