  • Any attorney (pro bono) in or near Danville, Pa area for medical (hernia surgery) malpractice law suit. (discovery 2014)

    Hernia surgery performed resulted in chronic bowel obstruction condition and numerous debilitating physical impairments.

    Thomas’s Answer

    Not very sure what is going on here in this question. If a case has already been filed then there is usually an attorney who would be advising you. If you are representing yourself then that is a big mistake since malpractice cases are very complicated and difficult. No attorney that I have ever heard of would do a malpractice case for pro bono. The medical records and expert testimony alone is thousands and thousands of dollars. Speak to an attorney for a free consultation right away. An attorney can speak to you anywhere they do not have to just be from Danville Pa.

    This is very sad and troubling. As a parent I would be upset as well. There is not enough information here to know if this is a case however. It would be important to set up a consultation and get medical records.

    Thomas’s Answer

    How did the cases get consolidated? It would be important to fight the issue of consolidation. Especially if the two incidents do not involve the same accident. If it has been consolidated it may be important to ask for a reconsideration.

    Thomas’s Answer

    It sounds like your husband may have an issue with raising his mom's estate. Or more likely he is very upset. You could start the ball rolling by consulting with an attorney on his behalf but then the attorney would have to make contact with your husband. It is also possible that paperwork could be prepared giving you power of attorney over his affairs. A consultation would be required. Thanks.
