Q. while cycling a part of the fork shot into my eye, my eye had to be removed and could not be saved, is this case solvabl
A: I'm truly sorry to hear you were so badly injured. John is correct about what we call "damages" (your injuries and what you have been through because of this incident) and that this falls under a category of personal injury cases called "products liability." Whether a viable products liability case exists will therefore depend on other factors. Those factors include the make/model/year of your bicycle, what specific part of the fork broke off, how and why it broke off, the bike's history and use, etc. The success of a products liability case will depend upon proving liability by a company (versus a bad/freak accident) for what happened and sticking within applicable time deadlines for filing a lawsuit.
Q. Piece of foley balloon left inside of my bladder after I had my C-section in December 2021
A: I'm very sorry to hear the ordeal you have experienced. The foley balloon, once left in your body after completion of the c-section and any further medical care, became what is known as a "retained foreign object". This should never have happened. A medical malpractice claim may be warranted.
Q. My auto insurance denied my claim on a financed vehicle. How can they deny my claim if I had full coverage?
A: United Equitable's denial is technically legal, but that does not make it completely right. Unfortunately, United Equitable is one of several insurance companies in Illinois that come up with a myriad of reasons to deny coverage for their own policyholders. Those reasons are oftentimes very questionable and can include partially improper reliance on EDR data, accident reconstruction arguments that an insurance claims adjuster does not have the proper expertise/training to make, questioning of whether an accident caused a person's injuries despite insurance claims adjusters not having medical degrees, and claiming the medical bills an injured person incurred are too high. However, if you were in fact going 92 mph on the highway where speed limits generally range between 55 mph and 70 mph, or there was extreme over-correction following an impact, United Equitable could have determined you were a contributing factor to how and why this accident occurred. That's called "contributory negligence", and depending on how much of it exists, it can serve as a valid legal defense to either reduce or outright deny a claim.
