3 Questions Answered
Q. I want to sue a hospital for medical malpractice (for a failure to diagnose claim).
A: First, you need to consult a lawyer as a medical malpractice case can be one of the most expensive and complicated types of Personal Injury cases. In terms of the medical bills you should contact the providers directly and either submit it through your health insurance if available or work something out with the providers directly. Whether or not you have a lawsuit the providers can demand payment. A lawyer can possibly provide options for you, but you cannot just wait to see how the case turns out as the providers may put you in collections.
Q. My sister was visiting with her new dog (7 month old puppy) and it bit my neighbor and her son. Am I liable?
A: This is a complicated question, but if you did not own the dog or were dog sitting or letting the dog stay at your house, you are probably no responsible. If your sister lived with your dad then his insurance could cover it. Your sister is definitely responsible, but probably does not have any insurance if she was living with your dad. Either way your insurance company will defend you if they decide sue you, but I would not pay anything out of pocket yourself.
Q. Are salons liable if I get a foot infection -- will they pay my medical bills?
A: Yes, they can be. Salons are held to a negligence standard like most other personal injury cases. A lot of salons fail to properly sterilize or use new equipment, which tends to be the main reasons infections happen at these types of businesses. Either way you need to consult with a personal injury attorney as the details of how and why the infection occurred will determine if you have case.
