    To prove a malpractice case, you must show that the doctor departed from the standards of care, that you were injured and the injury was a result of the departures from standard of care. Unfortuanately, your email does not give enough information. You need to be diagnosed as to the causes of your problem to help determine if it was caused by professional negligence. Also, keep in mind that a bad outcome does not necessarily mean there was malpractice. After you obtain your diagnosis, you...

    If your fall was the result of negligence-perhaps an unsafe conditon or lack of maintenance, you should be able to make a claim for your injuries. You should find out if the homeowner has insurance. However, you will need to file a lawsuit in Mo. but, if there is a claim and insurance you may be able to settle it first. An Illinois attorney may be able to help make a claim but you will need an attorney licensed in MO if a suit is necessary. Bruce

    I can appreciate how frightening this ordeal has been for you. However, because your daughter does not appear to have been injured, there would not be grounds for a lawsuit even if there was negligence. In order to win a case, not only must a party be at fault, but injury has to be caused by the negligence. It is fortunate that your daughter will not suffer any effects of the birthing process. On the other hand, if you sustained some permanent injury because of neglience treatment, you may...

    You may possibly have a claim for medical negligence. However, it would first require a thorough review of your medical records to determine whether your problems were a result of a recognized complication or negligence. A claim could also possibly be based upon the failure to timely discover and treat the laceration or or the sututed tube. A review of your medial chart would also help to evaluate the injuries you sustained. You should contact a lawyer who regularly handles medical...

    As others have indicated, you may have a case of negligence against the homeowner who may not have maintained the equipment or negligently encountered an object cause the blade to explode. You may also have a products liability case against the manufacturer of distributer of the product for lack of safety guards or warning, or a defective blade. Of course, if the homeowner failed to properly use the equipment or modified it, this may also be negligence by the homeowner. In any event you...

    I'm sorry that your mother has suffered so much. Patients on medicare are able to sue for medical negligence. The effect of medicare is when a case is settled or a verdict is rendered. At that time, medicare may be entitled to be reimbursed from settlement proceeds amounts that they paid for the medical care attributed to the negligence. Your mother may have a case if the doctor was careless in his treatment. This is different than a bad result. For example, in a case I am currently...

    When a person is injured as the result of someone elses negligence, they would be entitled to compensation for their medical expenses, loss of earnings if any, and their pain, suffering, disfigurement and loss of normal life or disability. In the matter involving your brother, a key issue is whether his death was as a result of the fracture or sugery and therefore caused by the negligence. If so, then there may be a wrongful death claim. In that situation, his wife, children, parents or...
