You await a response for a week, but this isn't really an attorney referral service. It's only a Q & A Board. You could avoid losing further time by seeking out an attorney on your own. You could use the resources of this site, or you could conduct independent searches online. Good...Read more »

An Ohio attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. Until you are able to consult with a local attorney, based on these brief facts, there doesn't appear to be a strong basis for a medical malpractice case here. It looks like you sought an evaluation by a medical...Read more »
This is something on which an Ohio attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. From the brief facts provided, it isn't fully clear what happened in terms of misunderstandings or breakdowns in communication that may have been aggravated by the COVID-19 situation. When...Read more »
I suffer from headaches and have a cranial shunt in my head, I was in the emergency room getting an X-ray of my cranial shunt when the technician dropped the X-ray board on my head and right onto where my shunt is in my head. Then the emergency room discharged me immediately when I returned to my... Read more »
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 »
Never failed drug test or drug count. He had weaned me down from 100mg to 30mg which I have been on since the drug addicts started ODing. Went into office last month and he gave me 15 days of 20mg and 15 days of 10mg and told me I was done. I need to go back to pain clinic but have no insurance and... 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
My dad passed away before the suit was settled. We were more concerned with him & the time we had left together and never asked for any details regarding the lawsuit. We never even asked who his attorney was.
After he passed my grdma told others about all the $ she was getting from his... Read more »
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. This is something an Ohio...Read more »
My father just passed away from this and Acute Ventricular Dysrythmia after seeing his doctor numerous times for his high blood pressure, numbness in his legs and feet, severe confusion, chest pain and trouble breathing and they never did tests for his heart. They kept telling him it could be... Read more »
I'm very sorry for your loss. An Ohio attorney could address your question in the best manner, but your post remains open for three weeks. As a general matter in any jurisdiction, medical malpractice cases are generally assessed in terms of whether a breach of a duty occurred. To make that...Read more »
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. They looked at it but there was no ENT doctor available at the time. Instead of waiting until one arrived,... Read more »
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. I suggest you contact a member of the Ohio Assn for Justice who handles medical care cases--they give free...Read more »
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.
I do not practice in Ohio, but as a general rule throughout many jurisdictions, medical malpractice statutes of limitations (time deadlines within which formal legal action must commenced) could be subject to allowances that provide additional time based on "discovery" of a condition. You...Read more »
I’ve been seeing a doctor for at least 12 years due to back, neck, hips, knee pain. I’ve had major back surgery in 2009....rod plus screws. I’ve had my thumb fused. This doctor put me on 3 neurontin a day when I first saw him, and 4 Vicodin’s a day also. Eventually the neurontin went up to... Read more »
For past 2y, I have decreased dosage myself, and aware just stopping could kill me. MD aware but states he can't force others to take over pain control and has left it up to me. 100s of phone calls and as many rejections later,my time is running out quickly. I've even tried and been... Read more »
First you can't force a doctor to treat you. Suggest you look for a clinic and see if there is a health advisor who can tell you about the resources you have. My understanding--and I am not a doctor--is that you will not die. You may have a number of issues but death is not necessarily one of...Read more »
Original buyer never paid full amount for business, we obtained a judgment, our attorney did not act on the remainder due( we will be sueing him- that's another story) they appealed, now they are claiming she hid business assets- untrue, she lost her home, had major medical problems and...

I think I answered this already. Did the tavern have insurance? That should cover the claim, get her an attorney. If the claimant settled, see the release. Otherwise, get a consult from a bankruptcy attorney. That would put the other proceedings on hold.
This has been going on for 5 years.. If it is an LLC and she was President ..there was no piercing of the veil.. how can they request a debtors exam?? she is on SSI, home was foreclosed on, she rents an apartment, it was a bar , there were no assets .. She is basically bed ridden, heart attack when... Read more »
He went in for surgery to have a dialysis port changed to the hospital. He was released back to the nursing home. About a week later he was taken to our local hospital because he was sick. We was told then that he possibly had Septsis and they were sending to a more equipped hospital. After being... Read more »
Too much anesthesia resulted in fluid in my lungs and a partially collapsed lung and an had to be admitted for almost two days and the inability to awaken me for many hours after the surgery. The anesthesiologist came to visit me more than anyone who participated in the surgery. Also, what is the... Read more »
