I am a darker skin colored individual. I went to a new Dr on Sept. 2nd. They didn't have me fill out any new patient information which I thought was strange. When I went back to meet with the Dr. he asked me if I had gotten my tattoos in a clean, ...
I find the scenario unusual and inexplicable, especially the notion that someone supplied an ethnicity without asking you. On the level of the questions you were asked and the tone that was adopted, I think you were not treated with the appropriate level of professionalism and courtesy, and I would recommend that you seek out a physician who makes you feel at home and puts you at ease, and not return to this office.
But the question of whether you can sue the doctor is a different matter entirely. Anyone can file a lawsuit against someone else; the question is whether there is a claim upon which you may sue. I don't see one here, and this is not the type of interaction which would justify a lawsuit. However, I am troubled by the inclusion in your medical record of someone else's WRONG assessment of your ethnicity without your input; it seems bizarre to me. I suppose you could make a report of it to the Vermont Board of Medical Practice and/or the Vermont Attorney General. We can't have people assigning speculative ethnic origin labels to us in our medical records. Also, patients have the right to demand that providers correct errors in their medical records, so you might consider writing to have this ethnic-origin label corrected.

That's a lot of money. I think basically you are telling us that you were under the influence of alcohol and caused serious damage to a rental vehicle, so it would surprise me if you could evade liability. If I were representing them I would get a judgment against you if you don't pay. Presumably German law applies and it would apply even if they sued you in the United States because you probably entered into the rental contract there and had the accident there. The contract you entered into with them may say that you agree to pay the rental company its attorney's fees if they have to come after you, so they may be able to recover far more than just 10,451 Euros, especially if they have to do a lot of work to come after you.

Employment discrimination is illegal if employer discriminates against employee on the basis of race, sex, national origin, age, disability or the perception of disability, skin color, religion, and in some jurisdictions sexual orientation or gender identity. There are a number of other reasons why a termination may be unlawful, such as retaliation for reporting illegal activity to government, or for protected labor activity such as attempting to organize a union. You don't say why you think you have been discriminated against, so we can't tell. All you say is they set you up. But setting you up doesn't mean you have experienced unlawful discrimination, it only means they did something you feel is unfair and which may well have been unfair. But companies can lawfully do many things which are unfair without running afoul of the law of employment discrimination.

Medical treatments usually carry a risk of complications, and a physician ordering a treatment has generally adjudged that the prospect of benefit outweighs the risk of harm. Physicians are not insurers of their patients' health, and plenty of complications happen without there being malpractice. Nothing about the account that you give makes me suspect that your physician committed malpractice or would be liable for causing your infection. Also, because medical malpractice cases are very expensive to litigate and require expert testimony at many hundreds of dollars per hour, only those cases with the most severe damages are worth litigating.
Get the treatment you need and I hope you heal up completely and that life returns to normal for you. That's the best result.

I was stabbed in a campground in the chest at a nascar event lost significant amounts of blood feared I was going to die now I will be out of work stuck with tons of medical bills as well as a nasty scar and nerve damage
The real question is whether the person who stabbed you would be able to satisfy a judgment for the harm you suffered. A judgment against someone who has no money to satisfy it is a moral victory only.See question
They have called several times at home. Now after a brief break, they called me on my direct line at work. They have left messaged at my mother's home and brother's home with my name and why they were calling. It is a scam, but they do have some o...
The question isn't whether you can sue, but whether you can collect if you win. I find the odds very poor on the possibility of collecting a money judgment from scammers.See question

One of the purposes of appeal is to correct legal error. The question of whether there was legal error that matters is very specific to each claim of error. A litigant who does not take exception to the judge's ruling, and who does not appeal, is stuck with the judge's ruling.
Expert testimony about the law is generally not admissible in evidence, on the rationale that there is already an expert on the law in the courtroom, and it is the person seated at the bench up in front wearing the black robe.See question

There's too much here we don't know. Why did the officer come to your door? Different analytical frameworks apply depending upon whether the officer was engaged in "community caretaking," i.e., had reason to believe you might be seriously injured, vs. whether the officer was looking for evidence of criminal activity. If the only damages were that your door was broken, that's not something to sue over. But there is a lot here you don't say. If you want legal advice you can rely on, schedule a private consultation with a local lawyer.See question
