    Sarnie’s Answer

    If the accident occurred in Texas, you may need to sue both the driver for causing the accident and his father, the owner of the vehicle, for negligently entrusting his vehicle to an unlicensed driver. This will resolve the coverage issue and force the father's insurance company to pay for your damages including any injury sustained by your wife.

  • Do I have a case against Walmart for a roll up door falling on my head?

    I am a third party delivery driver for Walmart. A roll up door rolled down striking me on the head just as I was entering the stock/delivery area from the outside. The store manager witnessed it and he was also the one that opened the door. The ma...

    Sarnie’s Answer

    You do have a valid claim if you can prove WalMart knew or should have known the door was not functioning properly. This evidence is usually acquired by forcing WalMart to produce the maintenance and repair records for the door as well as other accident or incident reports involving the door. Your attorney can also subpoena and question other WalMart loading dock employees to try to find evidence that they knew there was a problem with the door. This procedure can be costly, usually approximately $3,000.00, however, if you have sustained a significant injury, any competent attorney should be willing to advance the money to find the necessary evidence. If your injury was very minor, it may not be worth the expense. You may need to see a neurologist to determine the full extent of your injury.

  • Are there any Dental Malpractice Attorneys in Texas that's not afraid of taking a case with enough evidence to win it?

    I'm a 51 year old male with no previous teeth extracted. My dentist isolated an abscess under wisdom tooth # 32 and recommended extraction of the tooth. The oral surgeon he referred, extracted my tooth, but failed to treat the abscess and I wasn't...

    • Selected as best answer

    The facts seem to indicate a valid malpractice claim. It has long been considered negligent for a dentist to attempt dental repair or extraction in the presence of an active infection without first treating the infection. If the dentist knew or should have known about the infection, he was required to resolve the infection before performing the extraction. Had he done so, the problems associated with the infection would never have occurred. If you would like to discuss this matter with me further, I am located in Houston, Texas, and can be reached at 713-626-8600.

    Sarnie’s Answer

    You have a valid wrongful death claim against the step-father; however, in order to have a chance to recover money, the lawsuit has to be filed while the step-father's estate is still in probate before any of the assets are divided/distributed. Otherwise, you may end up with a judgment against the estate, which may be worthless.

  • Can I get a Medical Malpractice Attorney to help me with my Medical Claim?

    I had intestinal surgery. I came back to hospital a week later severly infected and became septic. My surgeon admitted fault to me and my mom and sister. Claiming that he may have put my intestines back wrong causing them to be severely wound up...

    Sarnie’s Answer

    Based on the limited info provided, it sounds like the problem probably began as a post-operative ileus or intestinal blockage. This is a common surgical risk which requires the surgeon to vigilantly monitor his patient after surgery and before discharge from the hospital. The early warning signs of ileus are decreased or absent bowel sounds, flatus, bowel movement and/or abdominal distension (bloating), and sharp abdominal pain. A review of the hospital record would reveal whether the surgeon was negligent for discharging the patient. The infection, fistula, and blood clots probably resulted from the ileus and could have been avoided had the blockage been detected timely and treated.

    Regarding your time problem, there is a two year statute of limitation in Texas; however, that time can be easily extended another 75 days by providing the surgeon with the appropriate notice by certified mail with a properly worded authorization providing the surgeon with access to the patient's relevant medical records.

    The Texas Medical Malpractice Statute now requires that the injured patient obtain a written report from another surgeon who has reviewed the patient's medical records and prepared a report containing his/her opinion that the surgeon was negligent and explaining how the negligence caused the patient harm. This report must be served on the doctor or his attorney before a lawsuit can be maintained.
