Q: Do I have a case against my doctor for safety violations?

I am a dialysis patient from out of state. I need to renew my driver's license and at the dmv they asked if I ever fainted and I was honest and said yes due to low blood pressure but it was serval months ago. Now they gave me paperwork to give to my doctor to fill out to make sure I'm able to drive. That's not the problem. The problem is the doctor now wont fill out the paperwork. Hes claiming my calcium is too low (nothing about the blood pressure) but it's been low almost 2 years and he never did anything about it. And I've had instances where my pressure was super low and he did nothing. Now I'm better and loosing opportunities for work because of this is there anything I can do?

A: An attorney is not qualified to make a determination here as to a safety violation. You're asking about a medical opinion on the actions of an examining physician; only another physician who could review the file documents might possibly be able to make a conclusion as to actions/inactions regarding blood pressures and lab work of two years ago - and even that could call for speculation. You could consult with a Florida attorney to ask if they see things differently. Good luck
