My mother was dropped to floor while being positioned on surgery table causing injury, a additional hip fracture .
Yes, your mother may well have a valid claim. Among other possibilities, the claim could be against the health care professionals responsible for ensuring that the table and your mother were properly positioned, or a product liability claim if it is determined that the table itself failed despite the health care professionals doing what they were supposed to do. You should (a) get the medical records from the surgery; and (b) contact a medical malpractice attorney in Michigan to review the records and discuss the potential claims with you and your mother.
Please be mindful that in Michigan, periods of limitation — deadlines — apply to the assertion of legal claims. For instance, a two-year period of limitations applies to medical malpractice claims. This generally means that in order to pursue a claim against any health care provider whom you believe committed malpractice against you, you must comply with certain legal requirements prior to the second anniversary of the act or omission by the health care provider that gives rise to your claim.
Sorry for your mother's hardship.
So my dentist did two crowns on my front tooth. 1 front tooth was chipped about maybe 50, but a little less. I felt like he could've just bonded it, saving the hassle to mess with the other tooth. Now I have 2 temps and I feel like my life is rui...
The short answer is that in Michigan, you can sue a dentist for a breach of the standard of care that caused you harm resulting in measurable damage if you take certain legal steps prior to the second anniversary of the dentist's mistake. However, whether you will want to sue and can find a legal professional to assist you are more complicated questions that require consultation with a legal professional in the area. There are a few attorneys in Michigan who specialize in dental malpractice cases. One hurdle to all health care malpractice cases in Michigan is the significant expense that the cases require, particularly in the area of expert testimony required to support the case.

I searched for online colleges and came across Westwood College located in Denver. I called the number and spoke with a "counselor". I was 48 at the time, and I advised him I had an interest in Information Security Systems, and the only questions ...
I am very sorry to read of your hardship. Unfortunately, you are among a large number of adults who feel that they have been harmed by for-profit schools that have overpromised and underdelivered following "admissions" counseling that really was focused on getting students to enroll and to pay for the education with federal student aid.
You may wish also to explore whether a class action is being pursued or could be pursued based on your experiences.

Sorry for your hardship. In circumstances like this, one key question is whether an earlier diagnosis would have made a difference as to treatment and prognosis.
You should confer with a medical malpractice lawyer in Michigan about the particulars of your situation.
I was in a car accident yesterday by a drunk driver who ran into me from the tailgate as I was turning. He blew on a test and it read .13. He told me he had insurance but it shows on the police report for him that his insurance is "unknown". I wen...
Sorry to read about your difficulties. Under Michigan's insurance laws, you should be able to have your medical bills covered -- you shouldn't have to pay out of pocket. But typically its a driver's own auto insurance that is obligated to pick up medical bills. The fact that you do not have separate health insurance does not prevent you from being able to get auto accident-related medical bills paid for by auto insurance. The police report's reference to "unknown" insurance is not the final word on this.
You should contact a Michigan attorney to discuss your situation and your options for proceeding.
I got assaulted in a bar. I have a 9" fracture in my skull plus my brain was bleeding in two places.
A bar or restaurant can have legal responsibility for injuries to a patron who is assaulted on the premises, but it depends on a number of factors, including whether the establishment's employees or agents played any role in the injury and whether the establishment reasonably could have anticipated the injury for some reason.
It would be best for you to confer directly with an attorney in Michigan about your situation.
I went to the hospital and told them all the symptoms of a diabetic (but I didn't know I was one) and they just gave me a pregnancy test and told me the back pain was because I pulled a muscle. But then a couple days later I flew to Texas for my d...

Both class counsel -- the law firm or firms appointed by the court to represent people including you -- and the class action administrator -- the company hired to process claims -- should be able to tell you when distributions are to be made and be able to confirm what your payment should be. Their contact information should be available in a notice sent to you and in an informational website that may have been set up.
If you are not getting answers satisfactory to you from class counsel or the class action administrator, you can consider hiring an attorney to investigate your concerns.
