Saint Michael, MN asked in Medical Malpractice and Social Security for Minnesota

Q: Is it possible to get a lawyer to HELP ME?? S.O.S‼️‼️ My case will be dismissed soon without one. I was massacred!

I had applied for disability in 2015, and the Social Security Administration did a long & full review of everything and decided that in 2015, 2016, and 2017 I was NOT disabled -UNTIL- after my two 'botched' surgeries in 2017. Since then, I have been extremely physically sick, I still have several fractures in my thoracic ribs because he didn't plate & screw the 4 ribs he sawed through in the second surgery (he told me he broke 1), and sent me home five days later in HORRIFIC CONDITION! Sepsis, Chyle leak, 81%oxygen, 103temp, pneumonia, acute kidney injury/acute renal failure....

I had a mild brain injury as child-hard to do paperwork & filed just in time.

I just had a zoom court hearing on April 20th, and the judge seems to truly believe in my case, but because I do not have representation from a lawyer, it looks like she is going to just dismiss it to save the court time & money.

Been to pool Pt, pt, pain clinics, on 30 pills & a pain patch...more!!

I need a lawyer asap!!

A: I'm sorry your question remains open for three weeks. You describe an urgency in terms of time. At this point, you could reach out to law firms to try to set up a free initial consult instead of losing further time awaiting a response here.

For the disability-related matter, you could reach out to social security disability attorneys. For the surgery-related matter, you could reach out to med mal attorneys. You could seek out attorneys on your own, through the "Find-a-Lawyer" tab above, the Minnesota State Bar Association, or other avenues.

Only a Minnesota attorney could advise on statutes of limitations for med mal, which are governed by state law, but timeliness would probably be the first point to address, as you mention a timeline going back to 2017. Good luck
