Died 23 days later after kidneys failed. Do I have a case?
answered on Aug 28, 2022
Medical malpractice means that a doctor violated the standard of care. A bad outcome is not enough. Another doctor would be needed to evaluate what the doctors did.
Dr. Navales, Absolute Dental, incorrectly implanted posts to hold a clip-on denture. Broken posts and extreme pain have been the result. I am currently spending another $10,000 for dental work in another office to be able to have a clip-on denture without constant post breakage and pain. I was... Read more »

i suffered and got worse for months until a doctor finally figured out, from the ER's EKG that I had a heart attack, and major blockage. Do I have a negligence or malpractice case?
answered on Mar 22, 2020
You could possibly have one. An attorney couldn't offer a definitive answer based on these brief facts alone. But what you describe is the legal theory of "failure to diagnose." As a starting point, you could contact a Nevada medical malpractice attorney to discuss the matter in... 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 signed an I pad agreeing to pay a certain amount and now I have received a bill in the mail 6 months later for $400 they are claiming the insurance didn't cover. Do I have any legal ground to refuse to pay and how do I go forward?

It is neither liable or legal malpractice. It may be another tort and you may be able to add your own notes to the record.

So if the settlement is $50,00 and the fees are $10,000 I believe they must deduct the $10,000 and then take their 40% of $40,000,even if my son signed an agreement in 2015- in his ignorance - that says otherwise
answered on Jul 2, 2018
Unless it is a medical malpractice, the fee agreement determines when the percentage is calculated, before or after costs. If it does not say, then it is whatever benefits the client the most.
