    It sounds like your case has some good facts but you need to find a medical malpractice attorney who is interested in taking your case. You can contact your local bar association and ask for referrals. If you cannot find an attorney who is interested in filing a claim against the dentist then at the very least you can ask one of them to write a letter to the dentist asking for your money back. Alternatively, you can also file a small claims case. Again, I mention these options only in the event...

    It sounds like you may have a case, but how strong it is depends on a variety of other factors. You need to confer with an experienced slip and fall attorney as soon as you can.

    If the other parties insurance carrier is willing to pay your medical bills and compensate you for your pain and inconvenience in an amount that you think is fair, then a settlement would be appropriate.

    It does not sound as if you've been left any worse off as a result of the delay in treating the abscess. Presumably, you have completely recovered from it, which would not make for the best case only because of its value-i.e. you may have suffered from the abscess 5 days longer then you should have and some attorneys may feel that this amount of inconvenience/harm would not justify the filing of a lawsuit. Especially, if you are fine now. In order to adequately evaluate this we would need to...

    The first thing that can be said in answer to your question that that the value of the case will be much more if you are represented by a good attorney. Therefore, one answer to the question of your case and how to evaluate it to obtain the maximum possible is to bet the best personal injury attorney you can find in your area. Next, an insurance company determines a settlement amount for a personal injury case by looking at the extent of the treatment and its costs received by the injured party...

    Maybe. A doctor could be negligent in failing to diagnose a medical condition but unless that failure causes harm he is not liable just for failing to make a diagnoses his peers would have. Here is an example, patient goes to the hospital in the morning with abdominal pain in the right upper side of her abdomen. The doctor evaluates her, runs some tests and sends her home telling her it's probably indigestion and that she'll be fine in a day or so. Later that evening the pain is so excruciating...

    The answer is yes, a defendant can bring a motion for summary judgement in a Kaiser arbitration. As to the medical data, your attorney can try to introduce it and it does not really matter if the defense objects or not. This is because, although the judge may not admit it into evidence, he as the trier of fact will here all about it before he decides if it's admissible and therefore may be influenced by it.

    The above attorneys have given the best advice, which you should follow. Obtain your medical records, and find an attorney in your area experienced in medical malpractice who can facilitate a review of your records by the appropriate expert. Some/Most attorneys may require that you pay for this initial review and depending on how strong the expert's opinion is on liability the attorney may or may not take your case.
