    Based on those facts, you may have a cause of medical malpractice--However, in order to ascertain whether or not indeed there is malpractice, you must obtain all your medical records, charts, notes and have them reviewed by an expert doctor who then will be able to tell you whether any of the doctors in the hospital (either their direct employees or any of the non-employee doctors) failed to follow the proper standard of care. Figuring out whether there is malpractice is more of a medical question rather than a legal question.

    Get all your medical records and contact an attorney in your area who does malpractice work. Contact my office if you need help in finding an attorney in your area.

    Looks like you are not trying to simply get your medical records but records of some investigation. Those are generally privileged, specially if the result is a finding in favor of the doctor. You can obtain your medical records directly from the hospitals and doctors' office.

  • Can I sue my doctor for malpractice?

    In 2013 I had surgery (paniculectomy) to remove excess skin after weight loss surgery. I was told to call the office immediately if I got a temperature of 100.5 degrees or more. I had a temp of 103 and called at 10pm and the doctor on call told me...

    Nima’s Answer

    You may or you may not have a case. Finding out whether medical malpractice has occurred is more of a medical question rather than a legal question. The only way to find out is for you to gather all your medical records, charts, notes and have them reviewed by an expert who will then have to be able to say in fact the doctor failed to follow the standard of practice. Since medicine is an art, it is possible to have bad results when no one has been negligent.

    As soon as you can, have your medical records reviewed by an expert, or contact a medical malpractice attorney in your area so that you can know what to do next.

    Nima’s Answer

    Of course she can. All you have to do is to turn over the paperwork to your insurance company so that they may come and defend you. It's a part of their obligation to you and you must cooperate with them. The other driver has the burden of proof and whatever she get in the end is that which she can prove and nothing more.

    Nima’s Answer

    They are entitled to see the medical records pertaining to the injuries caused by the accident in question. You need to prove you were injured and the only way you can prove that is by providing them medical records along with the associated bills. Now, generally, if the case was filed the court would allow them to go back about 5 years into your medical history--specially if you are claiming major injuries and permanency and such... For a simple neck and back injury, they will likely only need your current medical. One thing you can do is to modify the Release they sent you for signature to limit it to medical records from the date of the accident and make sure you put in there that the release expires 60 or 90 days after the date signed. You should be OK with that.

    Best thing to do of course is to get yourself an attorney who knows how to deal with these sort of things.

  • My insurance co is suing the insurance co of a man who made an illegal left turn and hit me and another car.

    Jury trial coming up. Defendant found guilty of illegal left turn and also received suspended drivers license. Is this information admissible in court? Lawyer says no and refuses to do the research on ticket.

    Nima’s Answer

    No, it is not admissible unless the defendant plead guilty to the ticket. If he plead not guilty, the ticket is not admissible even if he was later found guilty.

  • I was in a traffic acident nothing major the other party never showed up to court and the case was dropped.her insurance is now

    trying to sue me a year later I got to go to court.

    Nima’s Answer

    First, you must notify your insurer about the papers you have received--otherwise, if you lose, your insurer will refuse coverage and you will have to pay it all from your own pocket.

    Second, the fact that the traffic case was dismissed has no bearing on the civil lawsuit (likely for property damage) that you are about to face.

  • Is the dog owner legally required to restrain the dog if it is sniffing a person but the person does not feel comfortable about

    The story was that the person fell while resisting being sniffed by the dog -- and broke the leg while falling to the ground. What if the dog owner was about 25 ft away from the dog, or felt it'd be a positive experience for the person being sniff...

    Nima’s Answer

    I think you do have a case and a reasonable argument against the dog owner who evidently, deliberately, let his dog lose and again deliberately did not take any action to protect you against the dog's attention putting into motion a set of circumstances that lead to the broken leg. Under these circumstances, I would think not only you have a case of negligence, you may also have a reasonable argument for punitive damages based on the deliberate inaction by the dog owner.

    You should talk to a personal injury attorney immediately. We work on a contingency basis--that is you do not pay any fees unless there is a recovery--and initial consultations are always free.

    First, I am assuming you have reported the incident to your insurance carrier. There is no way to know what is and what is not likely, but generally, in these situations if you are not a wealthy person and have no significant assets (house and a mortgage doesn't really count) chances are that the other side will make a policy demand and if they can prove the damages to be in the order they claim, your insurance must settle the case within those limits--if that happens then a general release is signed and the case is over forever.

    Under the law, your insurance must place your interests at the very least at the same level as their own--that is if there is sufficient evidence that the case may be worth more than the policy limit, your insurance has a duty to settle the case--otherwise, you will have a claim of bad faith against your insurer. Further, if they could have settled the case and they did not, and a verdict in excess of the policy limit is entered, your insurer must pay the entire verdict regardless of the policy limits.

    If the case warrants and a policy demand is made, some policy allow you to hire an attorney at your insurer's expense to make sure the insurance attorney protects your interest as much as he/she is protecting the interest of the insurance company who is paying his/her wages. Read your policy for that--if you do not have a copy, ask your insurer to provide you with a copy of the policy under which they are proceeding.
