My husband had the surgery. Somehow his eye got scratched. Now he can't see anything. Everything is blurry and double vision. We had to go to an eye specialist. They said there was a deep scratch in his eye. They had to sew it half shut because he can't close it all the way. We have to... View More
You may have a good lawsuit, since the injury was not something that you were at risk to expect from the surgery. You will need to go into more details with an attorney, to allow them to review this matter before reaching a final conclusion to determine whether this matter can move forward and is...View More
I would like more information on how to move forward in building a legal case against two doctors for malpractice and negelct. Acknowledged health discrepancies without disclosure and resulting in long term health issues.
My cousin recently left a continuing care facility that filed chapter 11 two weeks later. Per her contract she gave 60 days notice but moved out in 20. Is she obligated to pay for the remaining 40 days since she probably wont be getting the 90% of her entrance fee back that was promised in her... View More
A bankruptcy alone does not void a contract. Chapter 11 is a business reorganization. Essentially someone - a trustee - takes over the business, managing its assets and liabilities. Largely, that process does not affect you the consumer.
Think about it: you have likely bought products or...View More
Okay in 2019, 2020, and 2023 I have been told with all three of my children after and before giving birth to them I could no longer have children, with no concrete evidence other than their rather dim few of my race, assuming I had more than one father, or because I in the poverty line. When I was... View More
A Michigan attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. I'm sorry for the way you were treated. There is lots of information to sort through here, and a starting point could be to discuss the matter in more detail with an attorney. You could try to arrange a free...View More

In short, yes. PTO and FMLA are not mutually exclusive. FMLA covers longer terms of leave for which you are ensured 1) your job upon your return, and 2) continued health insurance coverage.

You may have a medical malpractice case. A big issue as to when this occurred. An experienced attorney needs to evaluate your case as if it is within the time limit to sue. Even if you have no case, it can be reported to the board that licenses her.
If you are unable to sit through a psychiatric evaluation without being admitted, it may be helpful to discuss this with your doctor or mental health provider. They may be able to provide you with accommodations or suggest alternatives, such as scheduling the evaluation at a time of day when you...View More

My mom was conscious but unable to talk, which is why this... View More
You absolutely may be trespassed from the hospital. If you have care concerns, those perhaps should be addressed as Mr. Selik suggests, or you may need to get other doctors involved to facilitate movement to a different facility.
You will always lose the battle between you and hospital...View More

Hard to say with what you present. Attorneys are not doctors or mental health professionals; I can only assume your husband presented "normally", and even stating all his mental health issues would not alone require an attorney to decline representation.
A Michigan attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. One option is to see if your health insurance carrier has the records. It's no guarantee, but insurance carriers might have medical records submitted in connection with bills to verify the treatments. Good luck
Dr. Kavanagh immediately suggested "pulling the plug" and after two visits to Borges we got her to Bronson where A bowel blockage was surgically removed, my Mom was sent home after only 24 hours and is recovering.
Thank you. It sounds like you may have a civil or administrative issue to address with Borges or that particular doctor; you should start there to address your concerns about that sign. The other answers provided were all within the whelm of possibilities depending on the totality of the...View More

A number of reasons, all of which depend on facts you are not disclosing in your question. Could be as simple as they are acting on instructions from the proper patient advocate - perhaps your mom's spouse or one of your siblings. Maybe there is an adult protective services investigation or...View More
A Michigan attorney could answer best, but your question remains open for two weeks. It's difficult to say, without more information. It could be a communication mix-up, automated scheduling error, or other reasons. More information would be needed to make a more meaningful guess. Good luck
