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 could try...Read more »

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 rejected for... 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 »

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..

The case would be decided on the evidence and testimony that you present in court. The vet would present evidence of giving reasonable care under the circumstances. The court would then decide if you met the burden of proof with a "good case." Small claims court can decide cases claiming up to...Read more »
Don't know if your state has a medical ombudsman. You can file a complaint with the state medical board to get your licenses. Assuming you have a personal physician, ask her or him if they can get some feedback. But a doctor can't be compelled to treat someone.
