    No, that is not true. If a car driver causes a wreck injuring a trucker the trucker can sue for damages for those injuries.

    The information you provided makes me think there is a viable lawsuit here. But, there are a lot of technical requirements that have to be met and your dad's attorney will need some time to prepare. So, your dad will need to hire an experienced medical malpractice attorney ASAP. In Texas a lawsuit will need to be filed prior to the 2-year anniversary of the negligence. There are some additional rules that might provide help on that but the discussion would be too long for this format. That...

    The value of your case is going to depend in large part on the course of your medical treatment and what can and cannot be fixed. If you have a herniated disc and two bulging discs caused by this you will need to seek proper medical care. Your attorney will need to know what the doctors are going to want to do for you. You will need to contact an experienced trucking lawyer to get you through the process and get fair value for your case.

    I've done cases similar to this. The damages recoverable will depend in large part on the cost of surgery and rehab as well as how it impacts your ability to work. It is extremely difficult to provide a more specific answer with the details you have provided.

    Your statement makes me wonder why you didn't know the lump was in the left breast and make sure evaluation was focused on the left breast. The lawyers for the other side are going to ask that question so you ought to be prepared to answer that one ASAP. Also, your other immediate need is to get a lawyer and get a lawsuit on file ASAP. This is because in Texas the deadline for filing suit is 2-years from the date of the negligence. In cases where it is impossible know that negligence has...

    It depends on whether the hospital is willing to work something out with you. Candidly, if all you have are soreness, tenderness, and some bruising it is not worth the cost of hiring the necessary experts to bring a lawsuit. You may want to get checked out to assure there isn't more going on though prior to making a final decision. In TN, the deadline to file suit is one year so you should discuss this with a local attorney as soon as you can for further guidance. At the least, you should...

    The information you have provided contains a number of red flags that I would ordinarily use to spur an investigation into a suspected wrongful death. First, you have a post-op death case resulting from a supposedly successful surgery. Second, you have what sounds like clear surgical complications that apparently were not addressed at all. Third, you have witnesses who were concerned enough to request a higher level of care, which requests were ignored. Fourth, you have abnormal blood work in...

    You don't say when in 2011 this occurred, but it seems to me you need to contact an attorney on this ASAP in order to protect whatever rights you may have because there is a time deadline to file suit. If you wait too long you cannot file for any reason. As for your possible case, you will most likely need to get to a hand/wrist specialist to investigate possible repair. These are typically board certified plastic surgeons who have done a hand fellowship. Whether you file suit or not you...

    The short answer is that Texas requires suit to be filed before the two-year anniversary of the negligence. This is not the date that the patient died, but the date that the negligence occurred. There are notice requirements, some of them very short, depending on the type of healthcare facility that is involved. Whether suit is feasible in your situation depends on a lot of factual data that your attorney and his consultants would need to examine closely. Do not hesitate to call if we can...

    We do a lot of heart cases in Arkansas at my firm since we have an interventional cardiologist-lawyer on staff. From the information you have included it sounds like this is something that ought to be reviewed by an attorney. However, a lot more information is needed. First thing needed is the date of the original stenting procedure so that the deadline for filing a lawsuit can be determined. The second thing needed is a complete copy of the medical records including some special records...
