Asked by user in California.
I was injured at a Los Angeles Metro Station. It was dark, the escalator was not on, and the elevator had been used as a lavatory for homeless people. I slipped on the stairs and the lights did not turn on until after my fall.
It sounds like you may be able to file a premises liability claim against the owner of the metro station (usually a government entity).
The California State Bar Association has some helpful resources to help you resolve a dispute with your attorney.
Keep in mind that you have a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit in California (the time is especially limited when suing the government). Consequently, if your attorney hasn’t yet filed a lawsuit, you might want to consider terminating the relationship and finding a new attorney immediately so you don’t risk missing the filing deadline (at which point you would be barred from filing the lawsuit altogether).
