Generally speaking, infection cases are rarely successful because infections are a common risk and complication of any surgery. The law requires you to prove that the medical provider's negligence caused you an injury. Just because you had a bad result, does not mean that the doctor was... Read more »

Use the Find a Lawyer tab to retain a local employment law attorney who can review all the facts of the situation and your termination and advise you, and then contact your employer about any violation of FMLA that the employer might have done. That might get your job back.
Am I able to do anything about it now?

It's difficult to say, based on these facts alone. Was the ER doctor aware that an object was dropped on your head? Did you show visible signs of injury or complain of injury to the doctor? It's possible the doctor did not know what transpired during your imaging studies, as the only... Read more »

I'm sorry for your ordeal. You need the medical opinion of a doctor here, not the general perspective of an attorney. You could present your records to a medical professional and ask them what they think. Attorneys are not medically qualified to make such determinations. Good luck

I'm sorry for the loss of your father. If you know nothing about the case, as in not knowing who the defendant was or who the attorney was, you could try the databases of the Ohio court system if you're fairly certain the case would have been litigated in Ohio.

My knee was installed at Mansfield Hospital it was installed at a 12 deg angle.

You have not asked a question. If your question is whether you can go after the person who improperly installed your knee replacement, I would suggest going to see a medical malpractice lawyer asap.

Well the answer to this question depends upon whether your doctor harmed you personally somehow. Did he prescribe opioids for you? Did you become addicted or otherwise harmed?
About a week ago I had to bring my child into the emergency room for a mouth injury that needed stitches. The first hospital was unable to help us and sent us to Children’s Hospital instead.

A lot depends on whether they increased the risk of harm to the child. A problem is that one hospital was a specialized hospital. However that being said, they are held to a higher standard.

HypoPARAthyroidism was unheard of back then, and the doctors didn’t know how to help me. Today I am finally realizing what has actually happened to me. It took 9 years to be approved for disability. In 2001 I contacted 2 attorneys to file a malpractice case. I was denied by both of them.

If you have concerns about the sudden changes, try seeing another pain management specialist for a second opinion. However, it certainly is a new trend to decrease the use of pain medications.
