I had hernia surgery 2 1/2 years ago and I'm still in emence pain the Dr says I complain to much and finding a Dr to look at me seriously is hard to do they say go back to the surgeon that did it I was supposed to be better in a year the Dr said I...
There could be many causes of post surgical pain... but let's keep the discussion to causes that are common in lawsuits... which leads us to a botched operation or bad mesh... proving the surgery was botched can be tough unless there's a Kelly clamp or a Rolex left in the surgical site... proving the mesh was defective requires some medical findings... both things require a physician to provide a clue as to why there is postoperative pain... so, when one is faced with "unexpected" post operative pain, one needs to get a diagnosis... that's top priority.... as a side note, the initial post here mentions a surgery that was over one year ago, so there will be an issue with the statute of limitations for a botched surgery... not so much a defective mesh case... b ut in any case... time is of the essence.See question
Went the the hospital for the worsest headache in life lost consciousness and woke up getting a spinal tap lost consciousness again and woke up a day or two later on a clear liquid diet on isolation diagnosed with bacterial meningitis. Stayed in t...
The initial post is very hard to follow... but one thing jumps off the screen... as many a medical student had pounded into his or her thick skull... "the worsest headache in life" is either meningitis or a bleed... and both are life threatening... the rest of the post does not seem to explain what the final diagnoses was or how pregnancy has anything to do with it... thus, this person should call a medical malpractice attorney and take advantage of one of those free initial consultations so many of them offer... and do so without delay... as there are statutes of limitations which put a time limit on when cases need to be filed.See question
Medical partners up with a humidifier company for my patient . The humidifier machine is way too loud you can hear it from the room to across the house. It is a communication barrier and is bothersome . You cannot hear the t.v and have to higher t...
It appears as if the initial post inquires as to whether one can sue a governmental sponsored health payer for providing payment for a humidifier that is unacceptably (as measured by the patient's caregiver) loud when humidifying... to which the obvious answer is... "You're kidding, right?"
If a humidifier is too loud, there may be something wrong with it... it should be just a hot water heater with a vent to let out steam or a device that creates a cool mist by mechanical means... if the machine is found to function properly, than a different make and or model might be the solution.See question
Atleast once a day I receive a call from 5612107229. Ask for me by name, and say there is a lawsuit filed against me and where can they serve me papers at. Say i will be arrested, and put in jail...you name it they have said it. They refuse to ...
An annoying call from the same number every day might possibly be handled by blocking the number... as for a lawsuit... not too many attorneys are going to jump at the chance to get involved... but ya never know... though I know one attorney that would not... and his name rhymes with Polinaro.See question

If a person suffers significant harm because of the negligence of another, said victim needs to do the following: First - immediately get medical attention. Second - hire a personal injury attorney. We personal injury type lawyers offer free consultations and take cases on a contingent (meaning our client does not pay unless he or she "wins" money).
The issue with the above poster's scenario is whether the harm is significant. A one on one discussion with an experienced attorney via one of those free consultations should provide the answer.See question
There is a major hospital/clinic which is known for its shady dealings esp hiring unqualified/inexperienced doctors/nurses to cut costs and in one of the operation by one of the unqualified doctor a patient suffered a major irreparable health issu...
The answer about who is going to pay does not end with a different amount paid (assuming a successful case)... a victim of medical malpractice can only get recovery once... whatever that amount is... suing two defendant parties does not double the recovery... that said... if two defendant parties are negligent each can be found jointly and severally liable... which means it's important to get all responsible parties at the table.See question
Is 364.1 still in effect? Must a plaintiff send their notice of intent to sue to the Medical Board of California in order to initiate a lawsuit against a doctor?
Oh boy... another post that might as well say... I have no idea how to do surgery, and just need help finding the way to the operating room... to which I respond... I've been posting (sometimes cutting and pasting as I really couldn’t say what I said better myself) my biased opinions and comments here and there on the Internet and Avvo for a while now (since Al Gore invented online attorney forums, I believe), and every time I see a post about a person doing battle all by his or her non-lawyer self against an insurance company, I keep thinking the post might as well read something like, “my no medical insurance sister-in-law wants that disc in her neck fixed, something about the nerves being pinched. Anyway, she takes mother’s little helpers by the handful for the pain and that makes keeping her 74 Nova on the road tough. I want to help her myself. I know someone who knew someone that had surgery and it worked. So, what I need to know is where I can obtain some cheap surgical tools… only need them once, so I don’t need the Snap On quality type.”See question

Q: In my case is it better for me to get an attorney?
The alternative is having to recite the following poem sometime in the future...
I tried to act the lawyer and take my own case,
The adjuster was unyielding, laughing in my face.
I told them I was really hurt, and I was in a lot of pain,
The adjuster told me to get a life not hiding the disdain.
So here I sit, broken hearted,
I tried to settle but got thwarted.

No one should handle any claim (involving a motor vehicle accident with bodily injury) against any insurance company without a lawyer. Claims should be handled by a lawyer - one who will be able to understand and explain the physical damages and injuries from accident. The victim of a car accident really needs to worry about one thing - getting better. That means attending doctor's appointments, attending physical therapy (if appropriate), and taking his or her medication. All of the rest can be handled by a personal injury attorney. We earn our fees (contingent by the way) by taking on the stress and hassle of fighting for money - I dare say some of us actually enjoy the fight, but I realize that most people do not enjoy conflict.
My daughter is a methadone patient who was 8 months pregnant. Due to the non compliance of the director and a second staff member she went thru withdrawal twice and the second time resulted in an emergency c-section delivery. I am her mother and...
Taking junk while pregnant is probably not a great thing to do for the fetus or mother... taking junk while not pregnant is probably not a great thing for a person... Absent very few circumstances... like metastatic bone cancer in its final stages, a person should really rethink the whole methadone thing... and by rethink, I mean see a physician who deals with addictions and getting people off methadone... as for suing the supplier, for raising the dose and causing withdrawals? That does not make sense... but... as I always say... there usually seems to be an attorney who will take any case... as for this one, clearly not me or my firm... but there may be one out there... Google methadone lawsuits and see if one can be located.See question

If someone almost suffers harm due to the carelessness of another, he or she almost has a great case... close only counts in... well, you know... and not in lawsuits... be glad you are fine... and find a physician whom you trust and with whom you get along well.See question
