    It sounds as if you have waited to long to file a lawsuit. In Ohio, the statute of limitations or time period to file a medical negligence claim is one year from the date that you knew or should have known that the negligence occurred. This can be extended on occasion from one year from the last date of treatment. However, the Ohio Supreme Court recently held that medical negligence claims must be brought within 4 years from the date of the negligence, this is known as a statue of repose. It...

    i am sorry for your loss. If a nursing home does not properly care for a patient with a tracheostomy and the patient dies as a result, the nursing home can be held liable. The trach not being properly maintained is the duty of the nursing home whether it is repiratory therapy and/or nursing. The facilities are supposed to have medical directors that are licensed physicians that oversee care plans for patients and consult on a regular basis. I know that on a practical level that does not...

    Doctors are not supposed to, nor are they permitted to withhold tests results and information about your medical condition from you. As a patient, you are entitled to know your own information including test results such as an MRI. In the State of Ohio, there is a claim for informed consent and for medical negligence. Typically, you only have a year from the date of the negligent act to file a lawsuit. I recommend that you contact an attorney in your area to have your case investigated...

    You may a case against the dentist who should have been supervising the student and the student for their negligence. If the dentist did not employ the student, you would also have a claim against the employer of the student. If the student was going to school at a dental university that is a state university there may be some immunity issues with the student and you would then have to file a lawsuit within the Court of Claims which is the court in where claims against state universities are...

    Yes, you can sue a correctional facility in the Commonwealth of Kentucky that didn't provide medical attention to an inmate. You have to prove that the facility was negligent and that the negligence caused the inmate's injuries. In addition, there are specific laws and regulations that apply in Kentucky to correctional facilities. I am not sure which correctional facility this happened in, but throughout Kentucky many of the facilities contract with outside corporations and health care...

    I would recommend that you do a couple of things. I am not sure who your insurance company is or where you are employed. I would start with the Human resources individual and/or the administrator of your health care plan. I would relay to them your concerns and what has happened to you. These individuals may be able to help you appeal the denial by your insurance company. Insurance companies also have processes for appealing denials and if you do not have an individual within your company...

    In Ohio, a nursing home can be held responsible for failing to administer appropriate care leading to the death of a loved one. The answer to your question depends in part upon the circumstances and the facts of what happened to cause the failure to give the IV hydration. The Guardian may also be held responsible, but again it depends upon the circumstances of what happened. To answer this question completely, the nursing home records need to be reviewed by a law firm that handles nursing...

    I am sorry this has happened to your husband. You may have a claim for medical negligence against the doctor. If the delay has not affected your husband's outcome or his health long term, it may be difficult to pursue a case. I would get the spot removed. Sometimes doctors will write off the medical expenses and not charge patients if there was a mistake made in the care. I would ask your doctor if they are willing to do so. In Kentucky, you have one year less a day to file a medical...

    I would recommend that you turn the letter over to your insurance company immediately. If you were sued, then you only have so many days in which to file an answer in Court. If you fail to answer a complaint, then the other party can go and collect a judgment against you personally. Your insurance company will appoint a lawyer to represent you.
