I was made to walk out to the parking deck after being diagnosed with a sprain. I was told I could go to work as full duty in three days. Turned out I had a fracture and several medical visits later. I was out of work, used up all of my PTO, and now have tendinitis in my foot due to the improper... Read more »
A Georgia attorney could answer you best, but your question remains open for two weeks. It's possible you could. It would depend on the nature of the fracture and the additional injury you incurred as a result of the failure to diagnose it. Your first step could be to arrange a consult with a...Read more »
we had a failed IVF cycle at a clinic that was a terrible experience from start to finish. Since then, another doctor told me that the treatment (starting stimulation on day 21, retrieval on day 7/8) "makes no sense", and others have seconded this. I've asked the clinic why this was done this way... Read more »
In the absence of injury, you cannot maintain a medical malpractice case. There must be an act of negligence that is causally related to an identified injury. If this failed cycle of IVF reduced your chances of success with subsequent cycles or attempts, then maybe you have a basis for a lawsuit....Read more »
We are a Not For Profit Corporation, and we pay for patient medical expenses when they require financial assistance. We do not advise them on treatment, provide facilities to MDs, direct / employ MDs, or share profits with MDs. We simply pay patient Invoices when they are unable... Read more »
I'm not sure which 1099 form you're looking at, but it's probably the wrong one. This shouldn't be a contractor expense for you since the medical professionals do not contract with you -- rather, they contract with your patients.
With no more information than you provided, my hunch is you...Read more »
I experienced swollen feet before my fifth month of pregnancy, with a documented history of preeclampsia in my family (mother). I was never treated for it through my entire pregnancy.

There was not a question here, but if you are wondering whether you have the basis for a medical malpractice claim, it does not seem likely. It's possible the office might not be attentive to scheduling things in the best possible manner. But med mal cases are generally based on a failure of a...Read more »
There wasn't a question included in your post, but if you're wondering whether the doctor's conduct would be considered medical malpractice, the short answer is, "very unlikely." It might be inconvenient, or it might evidence poor scheduling. But unless the cancellations and delays led to a...Read more »
It could depend on the provisions of the insurance policy. Your post remains open for two weeks. There's no point losing further time if you need medical attention; ask the carrier to arrange for another primary physician. Good luck
I'm sorry for the botched surgery. Maybe the most fundamental thing that a U.S. attorney could tell you is to consult with an Australian attorney before signing anything. It's likely that Australian law follows general principles similar to U.S. law for the basic premise of medical malpractice. But...Read more »
As a general doctrine, a doctor unjustifiably abandoning a patient with whom a doctor-patient relationship exists could possibly constitute malpractice. But you must consult with a North Carolina attorney because state law-specific provisions could apply; your post remains open for two weeks. Also...Read more »
I called an ambulance because I couldn't move and was sick and was refused a ride to the hospital and was told I am a waste of space and don't deserve a bed. Ten minutes later I pulled the courage to call again and I told them I was sick and now also having suicidal thoughts.
I'm sorry for your ordeal. There wasn't a question here, but if you are wondering about your rights, the best option might be to contact a Nevada attorney to discuss the matter in further detail.

My wife's birth was more complicated than her pregnancy. She was supposed to have a better birth, but it ended up being 3 and a half hours long of tremendous pushing. Despite the epidural, she still had a lot of pain. Then our baby was born with all these crazy things, like seizures, swelling in... Read more »
A lot of time has elapsed here. Your question remains open for a week, but doesn't have a unviersal answer. You're going to have to consult with a Georgia med mal attorney as to the state-specific operation of the statute of limitations in med mal cases. I can't speak for the law in Georgia, but as...Read more »

If your son has a case, it would be for malpractice. Getting an MRSA infection is not, by itself, evidence of malpractice. You should contact a medical malpractice attorney to discuss the issue. Your son's medical records will need to be obtained from every ER where he was seen, as well as the...Read more »
I hope your infant is okay. It's possible there could be grounds for a case, but that would depend on what a medical examination shows. Thankfully, the injuries here appear to be minor in nature; I hope that's the extent of it. These cases can be difficult because unlike older claimants, infants...Read more »

You need to call around and attorney cannot call you as that is called solicitation. That being said the best part of the case is probably the bed sores or non/mis diagnosis. Bed sores should never occur in a patient that cannot move themselves. Generally bed sores occur because of the following...Read more »
