  • Is it possible to sue first doctor for causing delay in treatment and not following through

    Went to doctor for low t when it turned out to be advanced bladder cancer and prostate cancer doctor blew me off for asking questions and his staff nurse gave false statement yo doctor he banded me from practice found out he was part of a group's ...

    Bradley’s Answer

    You have to prove that the 2 month delay caused all your symptoms. Cancer cases are hard for this because even if a doctor missed a diagnosis, because of the medical condition, there might not have been anything he could have done anyway. So get your records together and reviewed by an attorney, but be aware you have a tough issue.

    There have been two different medical errors in the case of my new born child and would like to understand if I have a legitimate case against the hospital as it refuses to acknowledge the occurrences in writing and have stated that is due to lega...

    Bradley’s Answer

    Because the costs of medical malpractice cases are substantial, unless the baby has lasting and permanent damages from the medical errors, a lawsuit would not justify the cost.

  • Does every one involved in a car reck get money back

    I Got into a wreck with my boyfriend and mom, I was driving but everything was in her name I didn't get hurt but some people have told me everyone involved gets money back from the other person's insurance. He was at fault.

    Bradley’s Answer

    You would be entitled to be put back in the position you were before the wreck. Damages could include medical bills, future medical bills, pain and suffering from your personal injuries, loss of use of a part of the body, lost wages if you missed work, property damage to anything owned by you damaged in the wreck. Without some form of damage, you can't recover.

  • What can I do?

    My mom had liver cancer and passed away kinda suddenly on the 23rd of June. Upon going through her pills to donate. I found that her pain medication was actually thyroid medication. She did not have a thyroid problem. She took all but 2 of 90 pill...

    Bradley’s Answer

    The real question is whether or not your mom taking the thyroid medication instead of pain medication was more probable than not, a cause of her death. You will ultimately need an opinion to that effect from a doctor. You may be able to get a medical opinion through a medical malpractice attorney.

    Bradley’s Answer

    The insurance company wants to cut one check and then be done with the file. They won't agree to make periodic payments. Once you have accepted a settlement and they have made that payment, if unexpected medical expenses or damages come up later, they don't have to pay. So before any attorney settles a case, they want to make sure they know all the damages that have occurred or will likely occur in the future. It sounds like a communication issue between you and your attorney. If that can't be resolved, you are free to hire another attorney. See my blog post below for details.

  • Can I sue a person for pain and suffering from emotional stress?

    My roommate has been causing issues( messing with my stuff, doing things to get on my nerves) for the past few months to the point that their presence or thoughts of them cause anxiety. Recently they just up and moved out without paying their shar...

    Bradley’s Answer

    You can't recover emotional damages from a breach of any contract or agreement had for the roommate to pay you or pay the lease. Otherwise, you can only recover for severe emotional distress and outrageous behavior. The emotional distress has to be diagnosable by a psychologist or other professional and the outrageous behavior needs to be far beyond your descriptions.
