Medical Malpractice: Is My Case Worth Pursuing

My question involves malpractice in the state of: California Last year I injured my foot, it was a small cut, but I am diabetic and knew the seriousness of even a very small cut. I had just moved to California, so I had to find a doctor in an area I really didn't know well. The doctor that I had found never looked at my wound simply took my word that it was there and told me he would try to get me in to see a podiatrist, but it may take 3 months for them to see me.

Medical Malpractice: What Medical Expert Will a Malpractice Use for Records Review

Medical Malpractice: Has My Time Run Out

My question involves malpractice in the state of: Alabama In January 2016, my daughter asked her psychiatrist to order a brain mri, as she had suddenly experienced memory loss and a decline in cognition. She thought this was due to a head injury. After the mri, her doctor was vague about the results and refused to tell us what the test showed.

Medical Malpractice: In-House Review

My question involves malpractice in the state of AZ Why do some malpractice attorneys do in-house reviews and then send it to an expert and some don't. I am sure every attorney's office reviews the records before sending it to the expert. Has it to with the number of staff they have/ the amount of malpractice work they do as opposed to other personal injury work. In other words the question is if the attorney says ' in-house review favorable' what does that mean.. Am I reading too much into ...
