She gets medical from her car insurance; if no car, then if she lives with you your car insurance has medical coverage which should be paying her bills. She may have a claim against the PD--contact a member of the NYState Trial Lawyers Assn--they give free consults.

Quick Answer: Anyone can file suit. But can you win? Probably not. Maybe, but probably not.

Why not? There are so many things wrong with the facts of which you described, that I am not even sure where to begin, but let's limit the issues and see if I can shed some light on why-not.

Long Answer: First of all you didn't die. You lived. You are alive. And therefore you have no wrongful death suit for almost dying. In the eyes of the law, sort of dying is sort of like being almost...

Douglas Lee Bryan's answer
The purpose behind a subpoena is to ensure the person subpoenaed actually shows up for their trial or deposition. If there is some compelling reason why the person should not be compelled to testify then there are remedies, such as a Motion to Quash.

Leon Matchin's answer
That is very complicated question requires thorough review and analysis but you didn't mention whether or not they had a GJ subpoena or not. An answer to a complicated legal matter such as this will be decided once you file motion to suppress and brief the law to the facts of the case. Let the court rule and if they decide against you then you should appeal.

Michael Bersani's answer
Generally, yes. They will have a head start. They will already have "discovery items" (documents they got in the first lawsuit) about the company. They will have likely already deposed the company's main players. They will likely have deposition transcripts they can use.

You can ask, but the carrier has the right to choose it's own doctor. You probably don't want someone new anyway. You may feel free to call me at 602-687-9211 (office) or 602-492-5331 (cell). I have 2 appointments this afternoon and I'm not available after 5:15, so it may be tomorrow before I can talk to you. Thank you

Q: On you medical bills for chiropractic services!

1 Answer | Asked in Business Law, Car Accidents, Medical Malpractice and Personal Injury for Florida on
Answered on Apr 29, 2018
Andy Wayne Williamson's answer
Your question makes a little better sense, but still cannot be answered via this forum.

I think that you want to know who legally has to authorize the billing for chiropractic services. I would say most likely the Dr., but he or she does have nurses and assistants that may be authorized to sign off on services being billed.

I doubt that there is any type of price sheet anywhere to be found, each doctor can charge what they want.

Dale S. Gribow's answer
for a med mal case, it has to be filed within 3 years or within 1 year of the time you learned or should have learned of the negligence....whichever is shorter.

it sounds like you may have blown the statute of limitation which would bar you from recovery.

contact a med mal lawyer with all the facts, however, i believe s/he would say the same thing.

William John Light's answer
You don't have any malpractice damages, e.g., doctor amputates wrong limb, or prescribes wrong medication which causes death. Depending on where the hospital is located, you may want to make a complaint with the licensing authority about unrelated persons entering your room, lack of care.

Ronald V. Miller Jr.'s answer
There has to be negligence. That is the key. Did they perform the risky procedure like an ordinary, reasonable prudent surgeon would. It is not the outcome that matters. It is whether a mistake was made.
