Yes, your mother may have a case for medical malpractice against the doctor who performed her hernia surgery. Leaving a foreign object in a patient's body is a serious medical error that can cause significant pain and suffering.

a water meter installed a few months after they took over. The installer took my heat tape off the water pipe. Last week the installed assembly froze, now the land lord want's me to pay for the repair. The installer did not do quality work as relaiyed to me by the repairing plummer.
The Idaho law on landlord/lessor law is that the lessor must provide you with water, power and heat. If the new owner wants to do away with the internet due to whatever reason, that's his prerogative. You should speak to the new park manager and document the damage to the assembly and ask...View More
An Idaho attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks, and you have a looming statute of limitations. Only a local attorney could advise per state rules, but the basic general rule nationwide is that clients are entitled to their files. Some elements might differ by...View More

An Idaho attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. You could ask them to investigate through the SIU (Special Investigations Unit). This will require thorough investigation, and three years elapsing doesn't help in terms of gathering evidence. A local attorney...View More
I am not a legal guardian, etc. just helping out. I've disabled her van to keep her from driving, but she says she is going to ride her wheelchair to town-multiple miles on a state highway. I am worried that if someone else is injured while she does something stupid like that, can I be held liable?
Based upon the facts as you have presented them, I do not see a basis for direct liability, or for what is known as "vicarious liability", such as if you had a child, he used your car with your permission, and injured someone. Thus, I believe that there is no legal responsibility on your...View More
An Idaho attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. Until you are able to discuss with a local attorney familiar with the state law, it sounds like a measure that could place you at unnecessary risk, since you aren't in the business of dispensing medicine,...View More
My mom's ex is abusive towards her and my sisters. She "left him" but he still comes over. She's been charging my sisters rent. They are over 18. Do they then have a say in whether or not he's allowed at the house if the are paying rent? They feel unsafe with him around but... View More
I had an iron infusion in April. Towards the end I mentioned to the nurse that my legs felt tingly and my skin hurt. Scratching felt like I was tearing my skin. She was not concerned so I didn’t think anything of it. When the infusion was over I stood and told her I felt like there were needles... View More
An Idaho attorney could answer best, but your post remains open for two weeks. Under general principles applied nationwide, the short answer is that cases are based on actual damages rather than damages that could have been. I'm glad you're okay. As for the symptoms you describe, you...View More

1. Restitution being taken out of his commissary money. This is probably per statute, so there is nothing that you can do about it. Your husband will get out some day and will hopefully have a little, less, restitution that he has to pay, because...View More
An Idaho attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. It's usually not a problem in most settings. You included personal injury as a category. If that means the question is related to personal injury litigation, you could specify which address is to be used for process...View More
Idaho doesn't have such a statute. An "assault" is the reasonable fear of a "battery." A "battery" is an "unlawful touching." If you touch another person against their will, you may be charged with "battery." If you use an automobile to...View More

A full answer would require additional consultation. However generally speaking if you "misused" the product, it will make your claim difficult. Under Idaho law, a jury would ultimately be asked to proportion the negligence of both you and the manufacturer (or possibly the...View More
