Your daughter should contact an experience attorney who is familiar with child abuse cases. She needs help in the current case before she thinks about suing. The earlier in an investigation that she hires an attorney, the better off she will be. Best of luck!

Generally they wouldn't do the tests because the treatment would likely be the same. However to give yourself closure --and as I may be wrong--contact members of the Tennessee Assn for Justice--they give free consultations. A grief counselor may help you process your natural but very heavy feelings.

Assn for Justice who handles medical claims. They give free consultations. But from what you have...Read more »
Your best bet is to contact lobbying organizations and professional organizations concerned with that, and look at the existing regulations.

Unlikely given the passage of time, and you'd have to show the leg length happened because of that and not the passage of 10 years. Contact a member of the Tenn Assn for Justice--they give free consults.

What you are entitled to inherit from your mother depends on whether she had a valid will. If she did, the will would determine how her property would be divided. If she did not have a will, her state's laws of succession would control distribution. If she died intestate, you (and your...Read more »

A lawyer can't give medical opinions. You need to follow up with the surgeon and/or your internists. You may have a case if the mesh is the problem. First find out what your problem is. Generally statute of limitations is one year if surgery in Tennessee. As to the case against the...Read more »

My wife and I own a small cleaning business and we cleaned for an allergy doctor. There were several times we would come in to clean, and there would be needles left in the sink and not thrown into a bio hazard can. Also on occasion we would find needles on the floor and never picked up by staff. A... Read more »
You may have a case but you don't have any significant damages--other than a concern for what might be on the needle. A bigger problem is that if you were aware of the hazard and continued to clean nonetheless, you may be considered--under your state's law--to have "assumed the...Read more »

Possibly but until you get a diagnosis no one can say if it is caused by the epidural error. Looks to me like it's too late but check with a member of the Tennessee Assn for Justice--they give free consultations.
