Due to doctor negligence I have irreversible nerve damage and back problems
I am a birth injury lawyer in California. The statute of limitations for children injured at birth is usually their 8th birthday. The statute of limitations for adults is generally one year from when they knew or "should have known" of the claim. If the defendant is a government entity, either CA state or federal, the statute may be shorter or longer. You should pick up a phone to give more detailed information to a lawyer who practices in this area, many of them will evaluate your case for no cost.See question
I had surgery on my hand last summer to relieve complications from a torn thumb tendon. It was supposed to be a quick procedure and quick recovery. However, the surgeon didn't check if I was fully anesthetized before he started cutting. (He said h...

Birth injuries can be serious, you are right to be concerned. If you are able, it may help to get a second (medical) opinion, from a doctor in a different medical group, about diagnosis and prognosis for your daughter. From your description it sounds like the right specialty might be a pediatric orthopedist.
Extended statutes of limitation sometimes apply to medical negligence cases involving children, but witness memories fade and records become lost or destroyed. Consult a med negligence attorney sooner rather than later.See question

Without lasting damages the costs of litigation would probably outweigh the award you might recieve. Foutunately for you, the harm caused to you appears to be temporary. Ask your doctor about what harm was caused to you and if there's anything that needs to be done about it.See question
I previously had cancer but was in remission. My Dr knew I used to have cancer but did not tell me my annual blood test clearly showed the cancer was back. He did not tell me for an entire year, and now the tumor is substantially larger and causin...
I am sorry to hear about your condition but let me be frank. Delayed diagnosis of cancer cases in CA generally hinge upon chances of survival going from likely (51% or greater) to unlikely because of the delay. An expert oncologist will need to review medical records to make that determination. Consult with a medical malpractice attorney to see if that level of review is warranted for your claim. And put your health first, get the medical care you need.See question

Your health comes first, of course. Don't stop seeking good medical care to correct the poor placement of the IUD. The procedure to insert the device may have been done incorrectly, or the device itself may be defective, or both (or neither). Medical device claims can be tricky, because a certain level of FDA testing and approval canimmunize a device from a products liability suit. Please take care of your health and consult an atorney if you feel any significant harm has been caused to you.See question
My question is what can we expect from the insuance company of the driver? Is she entitled to any compensation? Pain and suffering, gas mileage cause she can not drive (foot broke) to work. Also the vet bill,as we took him to emergency.
How unfortunate for your family. Based on what you have said, you probably have a claim against the other driver's insurance. You really should consult an injury attorney to ensure you get what you're entitled to.See question
Can I still bring a case?
Reading through the attorney responses here brings to light how important it is to consult an attorney in the field. Medical malpractice in California is a complex area of practice.
A 4 day delay in treatment for cauda equina can be extremely serious. But the threshold issue in your case will be whether the statute of limitations has expired. Many cases involve a one-year limit from when you knew or should have known of the injury. There are exceptions, but 2009 is pretty distant. You should consult a CA medical malpractice attorney regarding your specific facts.See question
