Q. Animal case? Bladder surgery results in 2nd surgery, Dr. Error. Damaged urethra causing near death toxicity leakage
A: I am very sorry to hear about your post-operative difficulties. I have seen many instances where the surgery that was supposed to "fix the problem" leaves the patient worse off than he/she started. Your potential case presents a long list of issues that would best be sorted out by an experienced medical malpractice attorney. Most experienced medical malpractice attorneys work on contingency; meaning it costs you nothing unless a monetary recovery is made in your favor. I would be happy to discuss this further with you. Please feel free to contact me your convenience.
Q. What is attractive nuisance and do you have to be a kid for it to apply in a premises liability claim?
A: Attractive nuisance is a legal fiction that turns a child trespasser into an "invitee" in the eyes of the law. The doctrine springs from the idea that children are not responsible for knowing they are entering upon private land; especially if there is something about the land that "attracts" them to enter upon it. Therefore, children can not be called "trespassers" and the land owner owes them the same duty of care he would owe to someone whom he had "invited" to enter upon his property. However, Maryland remains one of the minority states that does not recognize the attractive nuisance doctrine; leaving a land holder's duty of care to children to be the same as any other person.
Q. I would like to know if I medical malpractice lawsuit against alpha health center,located in Elkton MD.
A: With regard to your medical records, Maryland health care providers are required to disclose medical records within a reasonable time, but no more than 21 working days after the date a person in interest requests the disclosure. A health care provider that knowingly and willfully refuses to disclose medical records in violation of Health-General Article ยง 4-309 (a)(d) is liable for actual damages, is guilty of a misdemeanor, and on conviction is subject to a fine not exceeding $1,000 for the first offense and not exceeding $5,000 for each subsequent conviction for a violation of any provision of this law. Your previous doctor's disclosure of potentially damaging information about you to your current doctor may give rise to other claims, including a violation of the HIPPA privacy protections. It would be best for you to consult with an attorney who has experience in these areas of law if your wish to investigate these claims.
Q. If you signed an informed consent can you still sue for malpractice?
A: Signing a consent form does not take away your basis for a lawsuit. No one, including doctors and nurses, can touch you, give you drugs, or run tests on you without your permission. Therefore, you must sign a consent form to allow the doctors and nurses to treat and care for you. However, by signing the form you are not giving the doctors and nurses permission to make avoidable mistakes or be negligent in a way that harms you.
