Matthew Williams' answer Medical records are not public and therefore cannot be sealed. There are HIPAA protections in place to avoid unauthorized disclosures. Also, it sounds like they are accurate: he was there because he expressed a suicidal thought. He may not have been serious, and it may not be the most suicidal thought possible, but he said he felt like dying and the friend apparently didn’t believe it was casual.
Peter Munsing's answer Depends on the damage as to whether it is worth the costs of looking at it. however, I would suggest you contact a member of the Pa. Ass. for Justice in your area who handles medical carelessness cases.
Timur Akpinar's answer No medical professional, or other professional, for that matter, has free license to be careless. The premise is that they will act diligently, thoroughly, professionally, and exercise their best medical judgment in examining films and outlining their findings. Are some more thorough than others? Yes. Is it possibly for one radiologist reading an MRI or CT to identify findings that another might not see? Yes.
P. Justin Thrailkill's answer You can get an adult guardianship if you can prove that he cannot care for himself. Talk to local attorneys where he lives and discuss with them your chances of getting him declared incompetent and taking guardianship over him.
William John Light's answer Your question indicates you are in Phoenix. Your question landed in the California forum. You should be asking Arizona attorneys and/or hospital management (assuming that is where this event occurred).
William John Light's answer I'm unaware of any statutory duty of the hospital to notify next of kin. Further, it appears that your uncle may have asked for no notification based on the "No Family" designation. Finally, the Coroner’s Office has the responsibility of notifying next of kin. https://sites.google.com/site/californiadeathinvestigation/Home/investigation-of-reported-deaths/coroner-operating-policies-and-procedure
Brent T. Geers' answer You will need to get about the business of filing for divorce quickly to fully resolve this issue. You may be entitled to free legal assistance considering your financial status and domestic violence allegations.
Kelli Y Allen's answer Front an immigration standpoint, there is nothing to prevent you from marrying him. If he is a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, he could then petition for you to become a permanent resident. The specifics of that process depend on a lot of factors, so I encourage you to have an immigration attorney assist with the process.
Ali Shahrestani, Esq.'s answer The inventor of the patent is named under the patent information on the USPTO webpage, and where there are multiple inventors they are typically listed in order of primacy. E.g, see: https://patents.justia.com/company/tesla. This answer does not constitute legal advice; make any predictions, guarantees, or warranties; or create any Attorney-Client relationship.
Homer P Jordan IV's answer You should consult with an attorney who can review the case with you and determine if this is worth pursuing. Most attorneys offer a free consultation. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558 HomerJordan.com
Allen C. Ladd's answer OK, if your parents became US citizens -- or either one of them did -- before you turned 18, you acquired US citizenship automatically. You need to file Form N-600 to get a Certificate of Citizenship. Check the instructions for the fee-waiver document, Form I-912, to see if you can get the filing fee waived. These forms, and their instructions, are available at a helpful USCIS website, www.uscis.gov/forms. Good luck, friend.
