Q. Can i sue for malpractice if the contraceptive we used was administered wrong or failed? the Nexplanon was inserted wro
A: You are asking the right questions as you process this. Don't lose sleep about yesterday. The stress and anixiety is certainly high, as this is in the top tier of stressful events. Suing a doctor/hospital is a very difficult but often a necessary decision to make. You need to be certain about all the things are you dealing with. "Is she pregnant" is on the top of the list. You need to know if the product failed and/or if the people entrusted to implant the product failed. If it was performed in a governmental hospital and/or facility, you may need to file a tort claim notice within 180 days of finding out about a potential claim, otherwise, you likely have a two year statute of limitation on a negligence claim. You need to see a lawyer right away if you would like to sue to protect your right to sue and to ensure that you are able to collect and/or preserve the relevant evidence needed to pursue a claim. It would be very difficult to determine if you have a solid case from the facts you provided, however, generally, if the product was defective or there was inadquate notice provided--or, they installed the product wrong (and it was below the standard of care), then you likely have a claim for product's liability, malpractice (professional negligence) and/or general negligence. As far as the emotional part. You will make it, just be strong for your family and wife. In five years from you, you will look back and be glad that you made the right choice(s) that might seem impossible to you at this time. When you say you can't tell your family? I am thinking that is what you were suggesting, because you come from a Christian Family. I think you realize how that might sound. They might just surprise you--not judge you. This was just meant to provide some general guidance but not form an attorney-client relationship. It is highly recommended that you retain an attorney should you decide to move forward in this matter. Therefore, the above-referenced is not intended to be legal advice and/or opinion to be relied upon since I am not fully aware of all the facts needed to render advice and/or an opinion in your case. ...

Q. Where to find an attorney for hit and run motor vehicle accident?
A: Well, certainly sounds like you have some decisions to make. It seems that it is almost always best to sue where the tortious act/conduct (accident) took place. Of course, this would be Idaho. There is a lot to consider, including convenience to most of the participants and a forum that enables you to recover for your losses. You are not entitled to merely "forum" shop, but it is important to select the best place(s) to pursue claim(s). Some decisions may be made for you, depending on the terms of your insurance policy. Most likely you are required to submit to arbitration should a dispute arise under the agreement about a settlement. On the other hand, you should be able to file a complaint in court on a bad faith claim. You could retain an Oregon attorney to represent you--on the car accident and insurance issues--since you are an Oregon resident. This attorney would not be allowed to file any claims in Idaho unless s/he is licensed there, as well; however, they could work with an Idaho lawyer if litigation appears on the table. If you have insurance claims with a Vermont insurer, to include Bad Faith, then you also might need a lawyer who can file in Vermont in either federal and/or state court. Bad faith claims involve your contractual relationship with the insurance carrier and their handling of a uninsured motorist claim. It could get complicated--as if it doesn't seem like that now. So, perhaps you might need an attorney from all three jurisdictions--or one who is licensed in all three. I am convenient that an experienced attorney can sit down and explain all your options. They more likely will need a more detailed factual summary in order to render a more decisive answer. Wish you the best! ... Read More
Q. How/where do I get compensated for hair loss from a hair product with misleading/false claims?
A: There are few things more frustrating that companies that make promises to their customers, who rely on the promise, then only to find out that it is a lie. "Best Burgers in Town", "World-Famous Pizza", those all make us expect their products to be good--if not the best in town.

You do not explain the details of your particular suit, but it would likely have to be a very specific promise to you to have a valid claim against a consumer. And, puffery, is allowed if a reasonable person would believe it to be a false claim that is simply a selling posture (i.e., "It runs like a dream") Claims such as, "Yep, the Ford Pinto was the best car ever made", well, most reasonable people would believe that is not true--and that anyone making that statement is clearly lying; however, it is a subjective belief that is open for debate and one that a reasonable consumer can research. And, no one can say that they relied on that statement to by the car and it was the sole reason they bought it. Were the promises about your results of the hair product such that anyone would agree that they lied to you or misled you in a way that more than just puffery? Did the box say, "Guaranteed to not make your hair green" and then your hair turned green? If so, you probably have a claim and the damages will be the issue left to prove.

I think you should evaluate why your claim is more than just an ordinary "buyer beware" case and why the company should be held liable to you. It seems that they would give you your money back for the product if you write a complaint letter to the company; if you are seeking a lot of money, then you will need more proof that the product directly caused the damage. One rule of thumb, if you have a great case, you should be able to find a competent attorney who recognizes that fact and will take it. I know it can be frustrating. I hope you have a remedy to the problem it caused and wish the best for you.
