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... Read more »
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...Read more »
Neuropsychologist told me I had Early Onset Alzheimer's (runs in my family), that I couldn't work anymore or be able to learn any new training/job. She later changed her report to say I had Mild Cognitive Impairment, Amnestic Type.
I went to Mayo in Rochester for a 2nd opinion... Read more »
If you have a scheduled hearing coming up then you need to find a disability attorney as soon as possible because going to a Social Security Disability hearing on your own is not a good idea. You can use the "Find a Lawyer" tab at the top of the page, or call NOSSCR Lawyer Referral...Read more »
It's possible they have provisions in their policy that covers them for changing the availability of health care providers to cover themselves for the contingency of participating physicians exiting their plan.

From the brief facts at hand and the words "not successful," the extent of your damages is not clear. As a general matter, to establish a valid case for medical malpractice, a plaintiff would essentially need to demonstrate injuries stemming from breach of duty of a medical professional....Read more »
A Minnesota attorney could answer you best, but your question remains open for a week. The need for a second operation in and of itself is not necessarily irrefutable proof of medical malpractice. The reason why a second surgery was needed would need to be determined. You mention the second...Read more »
I went to the doctor for a bug bite, but I was also getting migraines, muscle and joint pain, and fatigue. This doctor analysed all of those symptoms separately instead of all together. I took the antibiotics she prescribed, but only got worse until my skin started getting splotchy red spots that... Read more »
It's possible you could, but keep in mind that the assertion of the ER staff that the primary care physician should have caught it is not irrefutable evidence that creates an airtight case. It also appears that there is considerable passage of time, which is something that attorneys defending...Read more »

Specialist in urology today from a follow-up appointment and he said no restrictions and also wrote on my summary paper no... Read more »
Based on the limited details here, it isn't clear why you are still being held subsequent to your urologist lifting your restrictions. It's possible information is missing in terms of their policy, and that your family could need to look further into reasons why you are still being...Read more »

The nursing home didn't call a ambulance and told me to just ellivate it and ice it when my whole leg was swollen red and hot to the touch because I had a major infection growing all over my three metal plates and 18 screws in my leg! If it wouldn't of been for my cardiologist seeing it... Read more »
The case of medical malpractice is about the negligence which includes damages. Most of these cases are enormously expenses to prosecute. It seems from your description of your possible case that you have made a decent recovery. In my opinion, this would not be a case we would take on. Please...Read more »
On 5/1 I had 2 impacted wisdom teeth removed under general anesthesia. Healing was going well but I still had jaw pain two weeks later. I could barely open my mouth and was out of pain medication and was using just ibuprofen. I went back to the surgeon's office where I saw a second surgeon who... Read more »
Problem is you would have to prove that was what caused the item and that it was from your tooth and not a piece of bone from something you ate. Size seems big for a tooth fragment.Follow up with a dentist to make sure what you pulled out wasn't a problem
I am only 24 and have always had perfect oral health and have nwver had a cavity or any other oral problems before this medication.

First you would have to show that it was the medicine and nothing else that caused receeding gums, which can come from a number of factors. This is extremely difficult to prove. Either way you need to see an endodontist, so why not let them tell you what they think caused it.

You need to find an attorney that handles those issues. Suggest you contact the Minnesota Civil Liberties union, ask for their "cooperating attorneys" on prison medical conditions. 8th amendmendment? I do not think so.
I recently underwent an epidural steroid injection "into my C7 vertebrae" and after the procedure, various medical professionals questioned the injection site, mentioning that based on the injection site, it looks several vertebral levels lower (more in the t4/t5 range). The physician... Read more »
The nurse on shift dis-charged him. No details were discussed with him about not be sent home with blood-thinners. The doctor never discharged him personally.10 days later he had a massive stroke. Can't speak, write, walk, talk. Right side of body. Do we have a case?
The Defense attorneys get the records usually from a signed authorization which you provide (after an attorney reviews and edits). Sometimes the defense is given records from the facility at issue. For example if you are hurt in the nursing home the attorney for the nursing home may have the...Read more »
Although perforation of the colon is a known risk of the colonoscopy if there is not an informed consent you may have a claim.
I recommend having a qualified medical malpractice attorney review your medical records to see if you have a case.
