    At present, it appears you are judgment proof. If a verdict is obtained against you that exceeds your insurance and collectible assets, the attorney for the person suing you may file a notice of judgment that would allow the judgment to be collected in the future if you ever become solvent and acquire significant assets.

    It is entirely possible based on your information that you have a legitimate claim of neglect. We would also have to be able to prove that the neglect caused or contributed to your father's death. I have handled numerous cases related to nursing home care, having recently obtained a $6.5 million verdict on behalf of the family of a nursing home patient who died as a result of neglect, and I would be happy to speak to you concerning this matter. I would suggest you call my office and ask to...

  4. Can a bank be held responsible for costs caused by negligent misrepresentation during a debit card dispute.

    The major problem with your potential claim is the expense of pursuing it may very well far exceed whatever recovery you are legally entitled to recover. Unless you could prove conduct that was fraudulent or intentional [you describe it as "negligent"], and/or that represented a continuing course of conduct involving many other debit card holders such that a class action could be filed, it is probably not economically feasible to pursue such a case.

  5. My father had a history of hypertension and was prescribed Cialis 8/1/2013. By 11/8/2013 he was found dead of heart attack.

    It is possible that a heart attack can be caused by ED medications. It is also possible that an ED medication should not have been prescribed if your father had a known history of cardiovascular disease, which made it unsafe for him to engage in sexual activity, particularly while using an ED medication. These are questions that would need to be answered by reviewing all of your father's pertinent medical records. It would also be essential to know if he had taken the medication shortly...

    The date on which you consulted a different surgeon will most likely be the date, and probably the very latest, when your one year statute of limitations began to run. If that consultation occurred within the last year I would be happy to speak with you concerning your case. Please feel free to contact my office and ask to speak with one of my staff nurses.

    It is permissible to settle a claim without an attorney. However, you would be ill-advised to try to do so, since you would have no idea of knowing how to properly evaluate a potential settlement. We often assist patients in situations such as yours (or, similarly, people with small auto accident claims) by advising them what they can do to attempt to resolve their claims without an attorney, and we would be happy to try to assist you. I can also provide you with the name of an excellent...

    I urge you to seek a second opinion concerning the nature and source of your pain and other symptoms. It does not sound logical for those symptoms to be originating "within the area where the pacemaker was placed". What you are experiencing sounds like a nerve injury, which may be the result of direct trauma to the nerve (such as a laceration or crush injury), or it could be the result of indirect trauma, such as a stretch or compression injury. You should probably undergo nerve conduction...

    Assuming your endometrial biopsy was improperly interpreted, the pathologist would be liable for your injuries and damages. Whether or not the pathology slides were improperly intrepreted would need to be verified by a medical specialist expert in pathology. It is possible that the initial interpretation was equivocal as to the presence of cancer, and the fault may lay with your surgeon for failing to advise you of the ambiguity and not allowing you to decide whether to have another tissue...
