    You may want to look at the Oregon Board of Medical Examiner's website for information and your options (e.g. filing a complaint against the facility). You also have rights under HIPPA to correct your medical record. You can order your own complete copy of your medical record by sending in a release.

    You should contact your attorney and meet to discuss the changes that are needed. It may be a simple mistake and it may be a sign you want a different attorney.

  3. Do I have a case? Malpractice?

    You may have a case but the only way to know is to get all of your medical records and get them reviewed by an expert in the field. You should make a complete chronology of events and get in touch with a lawyer. In Oregon, you only have two years from the date of the negligence to sue so you should get on this right away. It sounds like he was monitoring your Coumadin but whether something changed to require more intervention is unclear.

  4. Can an swimming olympic gold medalist be sued for wrongful death for not helping a drowning child?

    Agreed. You may be able to file a lawsuit but without the Olympic Gold Medalist having an obligation to the child I do not see how someone can win. If the Olympian was the babysitter, lifeguard, etc. it may be a different story. Most states do not have a legal obligation to save a stranger and many states have Good Samaritan laws protecting a stranger who does try to help.

    Informed consent requires: PARQ -- procedure, alternatives, risks, and questions. Ideally, it happens at a visit before the procedure but often it occurs on the day of the procedure once a patient is in the chair. Many states have a board of dentistry you can file a complaint with if you think something was done wrong or to get more answers. Good luck.

    I encourage you to consult with a local medical malpractice attorney. Keep the bottles and any records you have regarding the prescriptions. Hopefully, it is just a temporary problem but if it is permanent you may want to consult with a lawyer. You should also check in with your husband's doctor to make sure he is okay. Good luck.

  8. Auto Accident, Not At Fault - Can Medical Bills Be Reduced if Paid By Health Ins?

    It depends on the laws in your state. If the medical providers are satisfied with what was paid by the health insurance it is fine for PIP to pay the health insurance lien. If there are outstanding bills you should ask PIP to pay those too. The amount of your bills has an affect on the value of your claim because some insurance companies use a computer program, like Colossus, to evaluate your injuries (many factors are involved but total bills, length of treatment and permanency are a few).

    You may want to consult a local attorney for some advice to make sure you get your car repaired and don't have to pay for it if the collision wasn't your fault. You should also call your insurance company for help resolving it and see what your company has learned. It is often difficult to prove fault in accidents without witnesses.

  10. My son was trampled at school and now his baby teeth are loose and the dentist says that they are important to save

    You should ask the school if there is coverage for medical care regardless of fault to help pay any bills that may occur and ask for a form to report the incident. You want to make sure it is on record with the school in case his teeth do not make it.
