  • The Law just told me a week from mediation that the company has no insurance. Why did they take the case?

    In a negligence case from a storage door, I received a concussion leaving me in a poor state of mental and physical health. It was stated to me from the paralegal that the company has no insurance prior to going to mediation. Should they have not...

    Jennifer’s Answer

    Call your attorney and ask to speak with them about the insurance issues that you have described. The absence of insurance does not necessarily mean that your case cannot be resolved at mediation, if the individual defendant or company is willing and able to pay the settlement out of pocket. Additionally, it may be that the defendant is insured, but there is some sort of insurance exclusion that has voided coverage for your injuries.

  • Should I hire a malpractice attorney?

    I had elective cosmetic surgery in 2012 for breast implants. At the time of the surgery I was about 4 weeks pregnant and did not know. The surgeon claims they tested my urine to make sure I was not pregnant before I went under anesthesia and that...

    Jennifer’s Answer

    The law in Georgia provides that a claim for medical malpractice must be brought within two years of the date of negligence. If your surgery was in 2012, you may be approaching or have already passed this important deadline. It is difficult to know from your description alone whether there was malpractice. You may wish to consult with an attorney, but keep in mind the two-year deadline described above.

  • My husband had some prescriptions filled for his high blood pressure and walgreens filled triple prescriptions of the same thing

    my husband had some prescriptions filled for his high blood pressure and walgreens filled triple prescriptions of the same thing. can I sue walgreens?

    Jennifer’s Answer

    Your husband cannot bring a claim against the pharmacy, unless there has been some harm. Based on what you've described, that does not appear to be the case. However, if the pharmacy made an error in filling his prescriptions, you should let the manager know so that he or she can prevent similar problems in the future.

    Jennifer’s Answer

    A Rule NISI is a court order that informs both parties in a case that a hearing will be held to determine or make a ruling on a specific issue(s) in the case. Without more information, it is impossible to know what the hearing is about. You should contact your attorney for additional information.

  • What is the statue of limitations for malpractice against a doctor?

    Father had surgery to keep shoulder from popping out in June of 2011 but the shoulder is now started to pop out again. He is 80 years old.

    Jennifer’s Answer

    Assuming the surgery occurred here in Georgia, the statute of limitations for medical malpractice cases is two years. Based upon the facts you've described, it appears the statute of limitations has expired, but you should contact a Georgia attorney experienced in medical malpractice to confirm.

    Jennifer’s Answer

    From what you have described above, it does appear that your pharmacist negligently misfilled your prescription. Nevertheless, in most states, in order to prevail in a medical/professional malpractice case, you must be able to prove that you were injured as a result of the negligent act. If the extent of your injuries is the long "taper down," then the cost of pursuing a case would likely exceed any recovery.
