A person who is older than 59 1/2 may take distributions from his or her IRA without penalty. The distributions will be subject to income tax, however. Medical expenses which exceed 10% of adjusted gross income may be deducted on Schedule A if you itemize deductions.See question
I'd like to change my name. I move frequently for work. How long must I remain a resident after I file a petition to change my name?
The name change statute is found at 15 V.S.A. sections 811-186. It does not specify minimum residency either before or after. As a general principle of law, where no other rule of statutory or case law applies, domicile is established by physical presence and an intent to remain. So if you are domiciled in Vermont, you may file an application to change your name in accordance with the procedures set forth in the name change statute.See question

I know of no competent counsel who would file suit arising out of an auto accident until the great majority of the medical damages are known. Jurors in auto accident cases are routinely instructed that this is the plaintiff's one and only opportunity to recover for his injuries. Moreover, a plaintiff who rushes to settle his case, only to discover that the accident caused additional harm, will be unable to add a penny to his ill-advised, early settlement.
Get the medical treatment you need, and make your concerns known to your lawyer, you should be able to address them and put you at ease. That's the lawyer's job.See question

The essence of a medical malpractice claim is that the professional breached the applicable standard of care, and such a breach proximately caused you harm. The facts you describe don't suggest one way or the other whether the professional breached the standard of care, or what caused you harm. it's not impossible, but at the same time bad results sometimes occur without anyone's negligence. Expert testimony is almost always necessary to establish what the standard of care is, what the breach was, how it proximately caused the harm, and what the specific harm was. And expert testimony is very expensive, usually hundreds of dollars per hour for all time spent reviewing medical records, writing reports, preparing and sitting for depositions, and testifying at trial. The economics of medical malpractice litigation make it so that only the cases which have grave harm are the ones worth litigating. Consult medical malpractice counsel in your state to assist you in making the evaluation whether the game is worth the candle.See question
Went to in Urology for right flank pain he told me I had a kidney stone in my kidney but that wasn't what was causing my pain he said it was a muscle problem one hour later I went to the hospital they told me I had a bad bacterial kidney infection.
Possibly, possibly not. But unless you suffered serious harm in that hour between the doctor's wrong diagnosis and your later, correct hospital diagnosis, there's not a case worth bringing. Negligence is everywhere, but only negligence which causes serious harm warrants the bringing of a civil suit.See question
