I wish you had indicated who the doctor sent your test being available, to. Otherwise, it's not possible to determine if this was a HIPPA violation or not. If you know to whom the notice was sent, please resubmit your question and I'll be happy to answer it, or someone else will as well.

An Idaho attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. It could depend on whether he files a claim. Unless there are other contributing factors such as roadway defect, the operator would generally be liability for components coming off their vehicle. Good luck

Contact the Court Clerk that you put up as the Beneficiary of the Bond. If you made a private mortgage, then you can ask the mortgagee to release, but it may cost you money. Sometimes a Declaratory Judgment Action is needed to remove the Lien.
