I have questions regarding my daughters death and feel the hospital she died at isn't very truthful and forthcoming with facts in the matter. Should I contact a doctor from another facility and see if they can shed some light on the matter?
I am sorry for your loss. I recommend that you contact an experienced medical malpractice attorney for an initial evaluation. If the attorney believes there is an adequate basis for further investigation she will assist in gathering the records and will arrange for review by an expert. There are time limits for bringing wrongful death claims in Minnesota, so if you are interested in having the case evaluated for a potential malpractice claim I encourage you to contact a lawyer immediately.See question

I'm sorry to hear that this happened to you. There may be a basis for a claim. You should contact an experienced medical malpractice attorney to discuss further. Most, if not all attorneys who practice in the area of medical malpractice will investigate without any up front cost to you. As Sean mentioned, in Minnesota you have 4 years from the date the cause of action accrued to start a lawsuit to protect your rights. The calculation of when the cause of action accrued can be complicated, so I encourage you to contact an attorney at your earliest convenience.See question

I'm sorry to hear about the circumstances surrounding your baby's birth. Generally, physicians who deliver babies must be careful to be sure that the presenting part of the baby (head, etc.) is far enough into the pelvis to avoid cord prolapse before they rupture membranes (break the water). Based on the information you provided I would encourage you to contact an experienced medical malpractice attorney experienced in handling birth injury cases to discuss the pertinent facts and obtain an evaluation for your specific situation. Best wishes..See question
my husband went to the towns clinic complaining of chest pains, they did an EKG and saw nothing so they sent him home. 1 hour later he was dead
I'm very sorry about your loss. Typically evaluation of chest pain will include more than an EKG, and will also include serial cardiac enzyme analysis to detect damage to the heart. The most common markers of heart damage are cardiac troponin levels. As part of a chest pain protocol cardiac troponins are typically drawn 2 or 3 times - 6 hours apart, as part of a typical protocol to rule out a heart attack. If you are interested in having this investigated, an attorney will need to gather medical records to analyze in order to advise you regarding whether there was evidence of malpractice in your husband's care. I would encourage you to contact an experienced medical malpractice attorney in Minnesota.See question
This was a licenced plastic surgeon practicing in Minneapolis, Mn. The proceedure has caused increased deformity
Generally, medical malpractice claims in Minnesota are barred by the statute of limitation four years after the date the cause of action accrued. Minnesota does not recognize the discovery rule, so the statute of limitations is not tolled until the time a patient discovers the injury. However, the determination of when a cause of action accrued for purposes of the statute of limitations, and the issue of whether any exceptions to the general rule apply can be a complex process. I encourage you to contact an experienced Minnesota medical malpractice attorney to evaluate your potential claim. This type of evaluation is done at no cost by most attorneys who practice in the area of medical malpractice.See question

You might have a claim for medical malpractice based on the delay in diagnosing and treating your gallbladder disease. In Minnesota a plaintiff must prove their case by providing evidence that a physician was negligent in providing care, and the opinion that the negligence was a substantial factor in the claimed injury. I recommend you contact an attorney experienced in medical malpractice for consultation. There should be no charge for their consultation and investigation of your potential claim. If the attorney believes there is a valid basis for a claim, she will have a medical expert review your case and provide an opinion- this is necessary to start a lawsuit in Minnesota. You should know that there is a 4 year statute of limitation in Minnesota- that is- you have 4 years to start a lawsuit- after which you will be time barred. So I encourage you to contact an attorney at your earliest convenience for an evaluation of your potential claim.See question

Possibly. Generally, if the care that your neurologist provided was not up to the standards of a reasonable and prudent neurologist (that is that a reasonable and prudent neurologist would have diagnosed your condition as related to your eye and not depression) and earlier diagnosis and treatment would have resulted in a better outcome, or less invasive treatment, etc., the you would likely have the basis for a medical negligence claim. In accordance with Minnesota law, the case would need to be reviewed by a qualified medical doctor who offers the above opinions, prior to the start of a lawsuit.See question
