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 ...
If the facts of your situation as presented are true, especially with the over-tightening of screws causing reversed cervical lordosis and paralysis, and failure to cauterize all necessary veins and arteries, then you more than likely have a strong medical malpractice case against your surgeon and related individuals/entities.
Medical Malpractice cases are tough and cost expensive, especially in Utah. So make sure you consult only with experienced and well-funded attorneys so that you get an honest opinion on the merits of the case. But yes, I think you have a case that several medical malpractice attorneys would be interested in reviewing.See question

My car was in the hit-and-run parked outside my house the person was never caught and my car's totaled and now my insurance only pays about 11,000 and I'm stuck paying the rest what can I do to have the insurance pay everything
If you purchased the car at an auto dealership, look closely at the documents you signed when you purchased the vehicle. They almost by default sell you gap insurance, but most people don't realize it or forget. It could be pretty clutch for you though as the insurance company only has to give you the "Fair Market Value" of the vehicle at the time it was totaled. Otherwise you can overpay for a car, and make some money when it gets totaled.See question

Agreed. Without some showing of wrong doing, you don't really have a claim.
The way to solve this is to look at your intake paperwork and see what was written in the "allergic to medications" box. You should also verify that the pharmacy filled the correct prescription and didn't mess up the doctors orders.
But if the doctor wasn't aware of the allergy before prescribing the medication, and the pharmacy filled the prescription s/he ordered, I don't think you have a claim. I'm really sorry this is happening to you.See question
I was in a car crash and I don't have health insurance. I have medical bills from the ambulance ride and the hospital. I am not sure how to pay these bills. The other insurance company said that they wont pay.
This is the true benefit of hiring a lawyer to make a claim against the other driver and get their insurance to give you a fair settlement, but only if the accident was not your fault. A lawyer can help negotiate bills in to a payment plan, or at least get providers to hold off on collection efforts until a case settles and you have some money to pay for them.
If the accident was your fault, you can either negotiate with the billing office directly and see if they'll reduce and set up a payment plan, or if that isn't practical you may be looking at a bankruptcy or some other debt reducing program.

Insurance companies will find any and all reasons to tell you why they shouldn't pay fairly on claims. There goal is to save money, don't be fooled by it.

Mr. Myers' answer seems to respond most directly to your question. In my experience, Federal Court here in Nevada can be really great for a quick resolution of a case. It's certainly more intimidating, but it makes for organized and efficient discovery and the Federal Court Judges constantly push for a fair settlement to avoid actual trial.
I would love to talk to you about this case if you have a moment.See question
During my family's move across country, we were in a roll over crash where my 3 children were ejected from the vehicle. The airbags did not deploy. This was 7 months ago. Is it too late? Is it worth pursuing?
You need to be concerned with what is called the Statute of Limitations, which puts a time limit on accidents such as this. Every state has its own Statute of Limitations, so it may depend on what state you were in when the car accident happened. However, I don't know of any state that has a Limit if less than one year.
Depending on the facts of this accident, there could be liability on the other driver as well as Dodge, or any other company that could be blame for the rollover. A Personal Injury attorney experienced in Product Liability cases would be extremely valuable to you. There are major concerns with damages, proving liability and cost of pursuing this case that an experienced attorney can talk you through.See question
