  1. У меня есть дело о врачебной халатности, но ни один адвокат не хочет брать его. Почему так трудно найти адвоката, который брал бы такие дела? Ведь это хороший случай.

    This is because 4 out of 5 medical malpractice cases are lost at trial, because juries are not comfortable punishing doctors and because doctors need to consent to their case being settled by their insurance company. Now, knowing that most cases are lost at trial, that cases take 3-4 years and that plaintiff’s attorney will have to get an expert that will cost thousands of dollars, most doctors refuse to allow settlement of the case against them, even if they know a mistake is made.

  2. Мой муж умер от ковида. Не могли бы вы PODSKAZAT ESLI KTOTO MOZET POMOCH с покрытием расходов на его похороны? Я не знаю, что делать.

    FEMA is offering help through the establishment of the COVID-19 Funeral Assistance Program. This new program allows eligible funeral expenses to be reimbursed directly to the loved ones who incurred those expenses. Individuals who apply may receive up to $9,000 per funeral and a maximum of $35,500 for multiple funerals that occurred within the same state.

    To be eligible for funeral assistance, you must meet these conditions:

    The death must have occurred in the United States, including the U.S. territories, and the District of Columbia.

    The death certificate must indicate the death was attributed to COVID-19.

    The person applying on behalf of the deceased individual must be a U.S. citizen, non-citizen national, or qualified alien who incurred funeral expenses after January 20, 2020.

  3. У меня свой магазин по ремонту обуви. Недавно я получил письмо, что кто-то упал перед моим магазином и получил травму. Но я не видел, чтобы кто-то падал. А ещё у меня нет страховки. Вы можете мне помочь? 

    Yes, i can. For individuals and companies being sued that don’t have insurance, my representation is on an hourly basis. Do you have a video camera recording the exterior of your store, or perhaps the store next to you has a camera? We want to see if the person indeed fell in front of your store, like he or she says. We also need to ask for copy of any photographs that person took of where he fell, perhaps, the defect is on the curb, not a sidewalk, which would be responsibility of the City of New York, not you. Finally, we should find out how serious are the injuries, what is the treatment was like, and were there any witnesses? We should speak about any defects that might be on the sidewalk that could have caused the fall. Give me a call 8005600214.

  4. Я попал в автомобильную аварию и при оказании мне медицинской помощи я получал инъекции. Только что я получил письмо от своей страховой компании, что они не будут платить за эти инъекции, так как считают их «не нужными». Что я могу сделать?

    If you completed all qualifications of the no fault policy, such filling out the no fault application, appearing for all scheduled exams with no fault doctors, there should be no reason you will be responsible for the bills. When you start treating after a car accident, the doctor’s office usually has you signed what is called an assignment of benefits, which essentially means that the doctor will be paid directly from the insurance company and if they give you treatment for the injuries, it is their belief that the treatment was necessary. In other words in their medical opinion, you needed the injection. Therefore, if the injection is later denied the dispute for non payment is between the doctor who felt the injection was necessary and the doctor for the insurance company, which felt that the injection was not necessary. Therefore, you will not owe any money and the doctor who did the injection can settle the dispute through the process of arbitration.

  5. Я ехал на велосипеде по Кони Айленд Авеню, и кто-то в своём автомобиле открыл дверь и сбил меня. Я отключился и очнулся в больнице. Теперь я не знаю, что делать. Пожалуйста, помогите. ?

    If you lost consciousness and woke up in the hospital I will assume that the ambulance brought you there, and there must be an ambulance report. In about 48 hours after the accident you can obtain the police report at the police station close to where you live. The website to get these reports has been broken for few weeks. If there is a police report, and the vehicle that struck you is identified your attorney should be able to find the owner of that car through the license plate or the 3 digit insurance code on the report. If there is no report, and you cannot find the car that hit you, an application to your car insurance must be made. If you have no car insurance, then your only option is MVAIC, which is a City agency insuring each hit and run victim up to $25,000.00. All forms for MVAIC are on my website at

  6. Я поскользнулся и упал в спортзале. Думаю, из-за чужого пота на полу, которого я его не видел. Владелец сказал мне, что это не их вина, и что это я должен был посмотреть, куда иду. Вы можете помочь? ?

    In these cases it is important to know what you slipped on and how long the spill was there. The gym has rules for how often they normally clean the floor. For example every 30 minutes. Lets say the spill on the floor happened 2 minutes after the 30 minute clean up. In that case the gym will not be held responsible unless someone told them of the spill and they failed to address it, by for example putting up cones or barricades. From the fact pattern in your question, I believe it will be very difficult to prove the case, because for example, I will order video cameras to see the surveillance. I will not be able to see sweat falling on the floor. I will be able to see if someone spilled a soda or something. The only thing that may help is to prove that it wasn’t cleaned timely and was on the floor for a long period of time, without being cleaned up. Finally, yes there is a rule that you need to see what is there to be seen, so this may be a case where a jury will agree with the gym owner about “watch where you are going” fact pattern.
