    The best thing to do is call all the clinics where you have treated and tell them you want a copy of your records available for pickup tomorrow or Monday. Then schedule an appointment with a medical malpractice lawyer.

    Appears to me your employer is looking for a reason to terminate your employment. My suggestion is you go back to see your doctor and ask if it is ok for you to do these tasks. If not, have your doctor prepare a restrictions form and bring it to your employer. Be careful. I sense your employer is close to terminating your employment.

    The attorney is trying to help you. If you give him the bill of sale and he is satisfied with its contents, he will not seek compensation for his client from you.

    The decision on what to do depends on who is the beneficiary of the life insurance. Call the insurance company and ask who is the beneficiary. If they will tell you, there are some options on how to proceed.

    Do not wait to contact an attorney. If you do, you may waive your potential claim. Make sure the attorney you contact has experience with such claims and is aware of the required notices and statute of limitations.

    They probably want you to open a probate file and get appointed personal representative. If it is a small estate under $50,000, you can avoid probate and submit a collection of personal property affidavit to the credit union.

    You can either request your records and make sure you ask them to include nurse notes, or go to the hospital and ask to review your records. Generally there is no charge for getting your records on your own.

  9. I have had knee surgery but cannot go back to work. The QRC wants the DR to give a rating for a payout, but I am not better

    Work injuries involve many different claims. Based upon your question, it appears the QRC is requesting a permanency rating from your doctor. This only relates to one of your claims. It does not close out all future claims. If your doctor believes it is too earlier for a permanency rating, he/she will advise the QRC. For SSDI, you need sufficient work credits and a doctor report to support your disability.

    The requirements for a will in Minnesota include: It must be in writing; you must be at least 18 years old; you must sign the will, at least 2 people need to witness your signature and sign your will, you must make it clear that you intend the document to be your will. A notary should notarize all signatures. There is not a state specific form.
