    Medical Malpractice cases are almost always 40% fees unless liability is obvious and damages are very severe. But, isn't everything in life negotiable.

    Yes. You can still buy it - but would take title to the property taxes. You need to order a Title Search first to make sure you know what liens are on the property before purchasing. thanks noah

    The answer is possibly. It sounds like a difficult case. The reason is you would have to show that the radiation from the CT Scan caused the miscarriage. This will often come down the amount of RADS you received. Often, a single CT Scan will not produce enough radiation to harm a fetus, but it can. Also, it may depend upon the status of your pregnancy. I would definitely request the medical records and have them reviewed by an attorney with access to Physicians. I would also ask as...

    If suit has not been filed and you believe the debt is past the statute of Limitations (SOL) I would do one of 2 things. First, you could choose to have no contact with them and (if) they ever file suit, be sure to plead SOL as an affirmative defense. Simply because the SOL has expired does not mean you cannot still be sued. You must respond if suit is filed. But if suit has not been filed, you are under no obligation to speak or communicate with the creditor. In the alternative, you...

    I would strongly consider informing the police and potentially filing a PFA (Protection From Abuse) immediately. If the police do not help, you should consider informing the district attorney at your local magistrate's office to see if they believe an harassment charge is warranted. It sounds serious, and I would treat it as such. thanks noah

    I would be patient and document the process. Hopefully, there is a justification for the delay. I would send a written request confirming your attempts to call and that there has been no response. If you still do not receive a response, your only option would be to report the actions to the better business bureau or to the PA disciplinary board. But that will not get you paid. I think documenting your frustration should resolve the issue. Good luck. noah

    You need to ask the doctor who gave the second opinion whether the first doctor deviated from the standard of care with the original diagnosis? If so, you may very well have a case. You need a certificate of merit if you are to proceed.

    In short, hospitals and doctors have a legal obligation to treat and render proper care to patients under their care and supervision. If they are refusing to render proper care to a patient under their care, then yes, they can potentially be sued. However, you would have to prove: 1. There was a legal obligation to provide care. 2. The defendants deviated from the acceptable standard of care. and 3. The deviation was the direct and proximate result of any additional harm suffered....

    #1 - VIP! - if you just received the judgment, you should consider petitioning to open the judgment, which some counties deem automatic if filed within 10 days of entry of judgment. If you timely file the petition to open the judgment and have a meritorious defense (i.e. suing for the wrong amount), then you can open the judgment and ask for a hearing, in which case, they may have a difficult time producing a live witness to testify on the account and thus, MIGHT, not be able to prove their...

  10. In pennsylvania can collection agencies freeze or take money from your account?

    Yes. Bank and certain investment accounts can be frozen by creditors. However, this can only be done once a judgment is first entered. A credit agency simply trying to collect money without a judgment CANNOT freeze your bank account (IRS excluded). Once a judgment is in place, then the judgment creditor can issue a writ of execution and serve the bank with interrogatories which then freezes the account. Then there are exemptions and exclusions to consider. Hope this helps. noah
