Daniel John Christensen's answer I am sorry to hear about your injury. If you suffered an injury in an incident recently, and that injury was really an aggravation of a prior injury, you are still entitled to bring a claim for that aggravation. I would have to know more facts to give you advice specific to your situation. Please call us immediately so we can get you the help you need. 512-888-9999.
Daniel John Christensen's answer I am very sorry to hear about what happened to you. Assuming this happened in Texas, you would have up to two years from the date of the incident to bring a negligence claim against the hospital or responsible medical care providers. You should know that these cases can be very complicated. Assuming what you experienced was medical malpractice, there are special rules governing that type of claim. I would encourage you to contact a Board-Certified Personal Injury Trial Lawyer like DC Law as...
Allen C. Ladd's answer OK, if your parents became US citizens -- or either one of them did -- before you turned 18, you acquired US citizenship automatically. You need to file Form N-600 to get a Certificate of Citizenship. Check the instructions for the fee-waiver document, Form I-912, to see if you can get the filing fee waived. These forms, and their instructions, are available at a helpful USCIS website, www.uscis.gov/forms. Good luck, friend.
Peter N. Munsing's answer Not a question. If you feel the data base would have shown all of her meds (and she didn't have an illegal stash she bought on the street) the estate may have had a claim--suggest you contact a member of the Texas Trial Lawyers Assn for the County where it happened; they give free consults.
Peter N. Munsing's answer Contact a member of the Texas Trial Lawyers Assn who handles medical negilgence--they give free consults. If they choose not to take it talk to another--it's a question of investing their time/money vs risk and like banks who'll give a mortgage to a person who was denied by another bank--each has their parameters.
However I'm not hearing you went to any medical scalp specialist to see what happened and what medically are your options. Regardless of the legal end you'd want to know...
Bradford Kvinta's answer Talk to an attorney as soon as possible. Failure to diagnose cases in medical malpractice are difficult, but your attorney can evaluate your claim and help determine a plan of action.
S. Michael Graham's answer These are potential violations of the law which need to be addressed by the appropriate agencies like the state medical board, health department, OSHA, or district attorney's office. These violations do not fall under workers' comp which deals primarily with injured workers.
S. Michael Graham's answer The general rule is that you will have 30 days to report a work-related injury to your employer for a specific injury. You must then file a claim within 1 year from your date of injury. The problem in these cases is the proof. If you can't verify that you reported the claim within 30 days, then you will have problems. Did you text a manager/supervisor about your injury? Was there an incident report completed? Did you go to the doctor and indicate that the injury was work related? All these...
Peter N. Munsing's answer Contact a member of the Texas Trial Lawyers Assn who handles medical carelessness cases. The problem is the legislature in Texas protects bad doctors so you may in fact not have a case because of a statute of limitations written not to protect you, the innocent consumer, but to protect the doctors from their patients!
Peter N. Munsing's answer Not necessarily--and if it is there aren't many remedies. Unless you have reason to believe someone read it it would be hard to prove any privacy case, but why not speak with a local attorney to see what they suggest.
Peter N. Munsing's answer morally and ethically only if they are free of reservations--you can't force a doctors opinions and I'm hearing this one believes that removal could cause paralysis. Suggest you look to the Johnson Foundation on the medical /ethical issues.
Peter N. Munsing's answer Contact a member of the Texas Trial Lawyers Assn--they give free consults. Unfortunately, it may be past the time you can bring the case. Scar tissue is natural, and in some people can be a problem as bad as the disc. Generally, unless they gave a guarantee I don't see a court holding them to their sales pitch. But get the free consult to see.
Peter N. Munsing's answer Look for an attorney who is a member of the Texas Trial Lawyers Assn in the county where it happened and who handles medical cases--they give free consultations. It looks like you have a case worth investigating. If you get turned down speak with another one--Malpractice cases are very expensive, especially as the Texas Governor and Legislature are hostile to patients's rights, so attorney's may turn down a case because it is too risky given the cost of bringing it.
