Peter Munsing's answer Contact a member of the Ga. Trial Lawyers Assn --they give free consults. Don't mention to her ENT that you are doing this--it'll make people worried that they will be involved. She needs to follow up with her ENT ASAP
David Alan Wolf's answer It appears that Georgia has a 2 year statute of limitations from the date of the injury. There may be some exceptions or extensions of this general rule / law. Contact a malpractice or nursing home attorney in your geographic region as soon as possible.
William Head's answer Your "spider senses" are working very well. There are too many of these folks who "connect" their patients with a lawyer who sues for soft tissue injury.
I'd change to another chiropractor.
I have seen similar instances that started with a "billboard" lawyer sending the person to a chiro, and later it was discovered that disk damage was the issue. Wasted $25000 on inflated, useless chiro. Then the injured person was left with a small amount of recovery, and the lawyer and...
William Head's answer The one fact, of your narrative, that sticks out, is that this was not your vehicle. If there was a legal basis for that pullover (e.g., the owner had an outstanding warrant, the tag was expired, no insurance on the vehicle, etc.) then the officer had the right to stop the vehicle. Once he or she saw that it was not the owner, that may not end their inquiry, is the vehicle was uninsured. That is a crime, to be driving without insurance, even if you were unaware of the lapse, by the real owner....
Robert W. Hughes Jr.'s answer Your question presupposes lots of things that may not be facts, but just conjecture. If your father has been abused by anyone, he has a claim against thst person. You do not.
Robert W. Hughes Jr.'s answer There is no first step in tolling a statute of limitations. For a slip and fall in GA, the statute of limitations is 2 years from date of fall. Things that toll the statute are mental incapacity, not yet being 18 years old and death. There could be others.
Peter Munsing's answer Not that I can see. Your "stress"isn't an item the law recognizes. You could have had allergic rhinitis which caused chest irritation which resulted in an asthmatic-like brochial distress pattern. There may have been an underlying infection, but it would be more likely to be malpractice to prescribe antibiotics to a pregnant woman as a precautionary measure.
Peter Munsing's answer She should contact a member of the Ga. Trial Lawyers Assn that handles medical carelessness cases; they give free consults. A lot depends on how she presented to them, and what symptoms she reported or they saw. However, if they told her to follow up with her internist and she didn't, then unlikely she would have a case.
Peter Munsing's answer It's a defense verdict on the two, a mistrial on the one. You have an attorney so do confer with him. He took what is obviously not a slam dunk to trial at great expense and time, which (s)he doesn't get paid for unless (s)he wins, so trust her/him enough to ask.
Peter Munsing's answer You look up who licenses her but as an RN you know that those items are rarely covered. Look for a good trauma therapist who does EMDR--it's a process that is not lengthy, doesn't require meds. Find EMDR practitioners through googling "Psychology today EMDR ____________________"(name of your city or general area)
Peter Munsing's answer I don't see it because you have technical violation and I'm not hearing about any fallout. If you were kept in longer than necessary there's a slim chance you may have a case. Suggest you contact a member of the Ga. Trial Lawyers Assn who handles Mental Wellness cases.
Peter Munsing's answer They may determine that in patient is not necessary or that the patient is stabilized and need not be in there. If there are problems as a result of an early release suggest you contact a member of the Ga. Trial Lawyers Assn--they give free consultations.
