Ordered an alcoholic drink with liquid nitrogen (all their drinks have it). Waiter brought it over and spilled it onto me. Instead of only legs, it spilled onto the top of my vagina so I couldn't even speak to the manager due to location of the bu...
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
My doctors office knew what I was already prescribed. For 8 months I had been trying out depression meds. When it was time to switch to a psychiatrist I decided to do my own research. I think i took 4 different types of meds. I believe only one ...
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

When an experienced medical malpractice attorney takes a case for a plaintiff, he or she will look to all parties that are allegedly responsible for the negligence whether it's direct negligence of negligent supervision... so... when one describes a situation where a surgery appears to have been horribly botched by an unlicensed physician who was on staff (a privilege that requires an active medical license in good standing), one is correct in wondering how the heck the hospital could allow this hack to have access to, and use of, an operating room... the next step in such a scenario is to contact a medical malpractice attorney for a free consultation... there are several of us that would be happy to provide one.See question
70 yr. old, pain in legs, feet, shoulders, neck and back from varicose veins, arthritis and maybe other conditions that haven't been diagnosed. Have been on Norco for 14 months. Previous to this, I was on Norco and then Dilaudid for several years....
If one asks whether he or she can sue a caring and competent physician for refusing to prescribe highly addictive tolerance building organ damaging drugs in appropriately for the :treatment" of chronic pain, I'd sure hope not... but the truth is that anyone can sue anybody for anything... and there are probably a couple attorneys who would take such a case... my firm would not... heck, if such a person came to me and truly wanted frank commentary on the situation, I'd tell him or her to be thankful he or she found a physician who doesn't prescribe junk and has experience with other treatments of chronic pain.See question

Credibility is a key ingredient to a successful case... lack of credibility can come from flat out lying or from just having bad memory... when one forgets which leg was injured in the past, that can be a big deal with regard to credibility... but who knows? Well, actually I do know who probably knows... YOUR ATTORNEY... that's the person who should know more about your case than anyone else... know more about how it's going... how it could go better... how it can get worse... and what a good settlement is... so... assuming you hired an attorney whom you trust... and assuming that attorney is good... and assuming neither you or your attorney are greedy, you might want to consider settling on the advice of your attorney.See question

The initial post on this thread clearly sets forth a very bad situation... and one thing upon which all the attorneys who will be contacted will agree is that condolences are extended to this family... as for the legal side... there are so many factors that need to be discussed and more information to be learned that a one on one consultation with an experienced personal injury attorney is the right way to go... Many offer free consultations and take cases anywhere in the State of California, so there's nothing to fear by calling.See question
