INSTEAD OF POSTING HERE, YOU SHOULD SET UP A CONSULT WITH A LOCAL DENTAL MALPRACTICE ATTY.
YOU MAY HAVE ALREADY FOUND THAT IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO FIND A LAWYER WHO WILL ACCEPT ONE...........THERE ARE A FEW LAWYERS, WHO ARE ALSO DENTISTS, BUT IT IS THE HARDEST OF ALL AREAS OF MALPRACTICE IN...Read more »
Both previous answers are good. Your doctor (or a paid expert doctor) has to confirm that your prescription wasn't properly filled and that caused the repercussions you suggest. Sit down with a good attorney right away and save the medicine you claim is not correct.
a business is allowing a doctors office to “recruit” patients on its premises. one of the managers is receiving a referral bonus (cash) for every employee that goes and has any procedure (bonus is from the dr office not from the employer). on top of that the doctors office offering new...

The short answer is that the medical industry convinced the Legislature to pass laws stacking the deck in the industry's favor and against patients and their attorneys. Even without special laws, these types of cases require a great deal of time and financial investment. Virtually 100%...Read more »

California has a 1 year...Read more »
A California attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for a month. At this point, you could repost your question in the Medical Malpractice category. But because this is more of a Q & A Board than an attorney referral service, you may get the same results again.

I've never heard of the law that says that you cannot be excluded while the vet is examining your dog. As far as the ashes, if you paid for them, and are otherwise current in your account with the vet, you are entitled to your property. This would be a Small Claims case as the ashes are...Read more »

Hi, I had a question about ID referencing. One night I was getting ready to head home from work and this lady came up to me saying that she didn’t have her ID with her. I questioned her reasoning for getting her pain meds at Walgreens and if she was prescribed them, I talked to the pharmacist and... Read more »
Hmm. You "referenced ID'd" (I don't even know what that means, it isn't a legal term) for a person that you don't know, at all, for them to obtain federally controlled substances from a Pharmacist and now you want to know if you could get into trouble? Well, it could...Read more »
The 8th amendment to the US constitution states: "Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted." Why do you think this has something to do with Medical Malpractice? The Federal government does not have laws relating to...Read more »

You very well may have a case if the facts are as you describe. You may also be able to work out a contingency fee with an attorney to represent you so that you don’t pay anything to bring the suit unless you win or get a settlement in your favor. It probably bears speaking to an attorney about...Read more »
