    i live in indiana,and about 4 years ago i had the paragard iud implanted,and just last week i found out i am pregnant,but the iud is embedded in my cervix,and removing it can kill my unborn child.and potentially keep me from having future children...

    Rhonda’s Answer

    You should talk to a medical malpractice attorney in your are as soon as possible. There are time limits in which you can file a claim. Further, it is likely your claim would be against the physican that put in the IUD, not the hospital.

  • Why wouldn't a single law firm take my aunts case when a hospital didn't set her leg and caused her to have multiple surgeries?

    She had stepped through a porch and broken her leg, the doctor told her that he had set the bone but he did not. it wasn't until about a couple weeks later that it was bothering her really bad. She went back to the doctor and he said she was fine....

    I can feel your frustration from your email. I would talk to another medical malpractice lawyer, or even two. Be prepared when you talk to them and be ready to talk about damages, such as time off work, hospital bills, what your aunt went through. At my firm, we always order the patient's records, but it may be helpful for you to get the records from the specialist to have with you when you meet with the attorneys. Unfortuantely, medical malpractice cases are expensive to run, so try to find an attorney that will only make you pay if you collect. As bad as it sounds, you may have gone to an attorney who thinks the value of the claim is too low to take because of the expense to handle the case. Understandably this can happen, but there are medical malpractice attorneys that will take these type of cases. If you do not have any luck finding an attorney, if you would like to give me a call I would be happy to talk with you and make a referrel that may be a good fit for you.

    We are not all greedy and most of us really care about injured patients and want to get good outcomes for our clients. My contact is info is Rhonda Wood, Stewart & Stewart. Ph #317-846-8999

    Take care and good luck.

    The Super Lawyer edition is a good source to find an attorney that is well respected by their peers for their skills in the practice of law. I believe you can find the listing at superlawyers.com. You could also call The Nice Law Firm and speak with Bob Nice. His firm does legal malpractice and the staff in the office is very nice to work with.

    Good luck.

    Rhonda’s Answer

    The medical care provided in jail/prison has to fall within the acceptable standard of care. Without seeing the medical records it is impossible to know if the proper wound care and antibiotics were given to your son. You should contact a medical malpractice attorney in your state so that the medical care that has been provided to him can be reviewed.

    Why have you not changed physicians? You need to get a second opinion and have someone look at the MRI. First and foremost, take care of your physical well being and make sure there is not anything medically that needs to be done expeditiously. If you find out there was a missed diagnosis and you feel there are damages related to the missed diagnosis due to delay in treatment, at that point you should contact a medical malpractice attorney. Keep in mind that you only have two years from the date of the alleged medical malpractice to file a claim.

    Contact the Indiana Attorney General's office or go to their website. An investigation will occur and if your allegations are substantiated, the physician will have to answer to the Indiana Medical Licensing Board.

    Rhonda’s Answer

    You should find another medical malpractice attorney in your state. Your new attorney will need to get your file and check the current status of your case. If your statute of limitations is over and the attorney failed to file your case and led you to believe he was representing you, you may want to contact a legal malpractice attorney.
