Hi, 2 weeks ago my dog was in our front gated yard, our neighbor was walking her dog and allowing her dog to aggressively bark, and bite at my fence antagonizing my dog.. my husband called over our dog as he was working in the yard but a few fee...
Under Utah Code section 18 https://le.utah.gov/xcode/Title18/Chapter1/18-1-S1.html?v=C18-1-S1_1800010118000101 it may be a defense that your dog was provoked. I think your approach of paying half is fair-minded and responsible. If the other owner wants to push the issue invite them to file a small claims action where you could invoke this statute and prove provocation. Other witnesses showing your dog's normally mild manner would be a plus if you have a trial in small claims.See question
Back when I noticed a Lump in my breast I was only 37 and a mamagram was preformed but when the ultrasound was done the Doctor had to teach the technician how to measure the tumors. He told me it was just a mass and I didn't need to worry or get i...
How many years apart were the mammograms? You may well have a case - it depends on the details. You should secure the medical records and the imaging to preserve your case. You have a limited amount of time to bring a case.See question
Husband put together a motorcycle ride for friends at his work. Is he liable for any accidents?
It depends upon how much control your husband exercised over the ride. Also depends upon whether he was negligent or grossly negligent.See question
A male nurse try insert iv catheter in cephalic veins about 4inch of wrist on my right hand .I told him no one did that before ,so I asked why not insert in sides elbow but he keeps insert iv and draw blood and iv injection on cephalic veins...
The short answer is of course "maybe."
I have handled a few IV injury cases and I am an old RN myself so I know quite a bit about these problems. You do not mention in your note when this occurred. Nerves can repair albeit slowly. If the nerve heals and the numbness vanishes good for you but bad for the case. The EMG evidence is good to have because it shows retardation or slowing of the impulse.
The diagnosis of carpel tunnel (if I am reading your note correctly) is not good - are they recommending surgery for that? it is not good because it complicates the case.
You have to prove that they did something wrong - either they did something they should not have done or failed to do something they should have done. Drawing blood from the cephalic veins is not absolutely contraindicated but should be used as a last resort and probably before going to the feet.
Whether you have a viable case also depends upon other factors such as wage loss, what type of work you do, the permanency of the injury etc.
On 5/22/14 I went in for fusion of C3-C5. When I woke up in post-op I was paralyzed from the neck down. I was rushed back into surgery and they find they hadn't colorized all the bleeding before sewing me up. After fixing the problems and rehab I ...
Sorry for your predicament.
Generally the statute of limitations (the date from which you are prevented from bringing a case) is 2 years from the date that you knew or a reasonable person in your position should have known that you were the victim of medical negligence.
There are essentially two ways that may "extend" the statute. First, is purposeful concealment or fraud by the physician. The other is the continuing treatment doctrine.
Your case needs to be evaluated by a competent medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible.
After blood draw I feel shooting pain I complain wants nurse take out the iv needle but she didn't do it .I was in pain numbness cold hand 10months . EMG , ENG test found I had carpal tunnel syndrome 6month late IV injection for MRI 3 days la...
I am really sorry to hear about your problems.
There are a lot of questions that need to be answered and the potential case investigated before anyone will be able to tell you if you have a case or not. You should obtain copies of your medical records right away. You should start keeping a diary of what goes on. You should also see a neurologist that is not in the same hospital group before agreeing to surgery. You should contact a medical malpractice attorney as soon s possible. Launching a medical malpractice case too early and too late can cause problems. Ideally you should also know the full extent of your injuries if possible before launching suit.See question
I am a psychologist who is seeing clients and am booked with clients on this day. It would cost me $1,300.00 dollars in lost revenue and I don't have much time to prepare for this.
As opposed to fighting the subpoena, as the other attorneys have shared, why not call the attorney who issued the subpoena and tell him to send me a check that reasonably compensates you for your time so you can make arrangements with the clients you have to reschedule. As far as loosing $1,300 you can probably reschedule your client's appointments and not all income will be lost.
I assume you are being called as a witness to a case where your client (the attorneys' client as well) suffered some harm. Appearing at court is a duty we all owe for the privilege of living in this country. Furthermore you are helping your client. Finally, it is probably the ethical thing to do--to appear pursuant to the subpoena.

Sure - you can sue anyone in the USA. If less than $10,000 consider small claims - go to the Salt Lake court - there is a free clinic put on to walk you through the process.You can also hire an attorney to do these cases for you in small claims if you wish.See question

Have him tell his attorney who can complain to the jailer - have him write e letter (certified return receipt) complaining - there are internal complaint mechanisms as well - it is all about making a paper trail should litigation be necessary.See question
