Is This Medical Malpractice?
I Had Surgery On April 1 2009 To Remove An Infected Cyst In My Left Breast. Well On April 6 2009 I Went Back To The Surgeon Because I Had An Abscess That Hurt Really Bad. Well The Dr Said That He Was Going To Remove One Of My Stitches So It Could Drain More. Mind You The Incision Was On The Right Side Of My Breast And The Abscess Was On The Left Side Of It. I Told Him That It Wasn'T Going To Work. Well He Cut Out The Stitch And Next Thing I Know Without Him Asking He Cut Open My Previous Incision Without Numbing It Or Anything. I Screamed And Cried For Hours It Hurt So Bad. Is He Allowed To Do This Without My Permission And Without Numbing It?
Medical malpractice, by definition, occurs when a physician fails to follow the generally accepted standard of care and this leads to an injury of the patient.
Whether or not what your doctor did constitutes medical malpractice is not a "yes" or "no" question that can be determined by looking at a book. These cases are made on expert witness testimony and then submitted to the jury or judge for a decision as a matter of law.
The answer to your question therefore depends on whether or not another physician would take the similar actions in the same circumstances. I cannot answer that.
St. Lucie County Fl - Pro-Bono Family Law Attorneys?
Desperately In Need Of One In St. Lucie County But There Is No Legal Aid Available Here For Family Law And I Cannot Afford An Attorney For My Divorce. Is There Anyone You Can Direct Me To Who Can Help Please?!
You may be able to do much of the leg work yourself. Florida has a self help web page that has all the forms you will need to file for divorce and separate maintenance and custody papers. Read through them carefully and be sure to get the right ones in the right order. If you don't have the money to pay for the court costs you can request exoneration of payment on the Indigent Status form.
Good luck, there's lots of reading to do before you get going but you should be able to get what you need done.
Debt Collecter Law Office?
I Have A Debt 800 And Some Law Office Started Calling And Keeps Leaving The Same Message To Contact Them, They Won'T Sue For 800 Will They? And Could I Pay Off 10 Dollars A Month? To Keep Them From Annoying Me?
If it is not your debt, I frequently get these, call them back and tell them they have the wrong number. As it is a computer calling, it will not stop unless you call them. There should be a law against it, I know.
Do I Mothers Rights For My Kids?
I Want To Leave My Husband But My Family Will Not Help Me. They Told Me To Go To A Shelter With My Kids. I Am Worried My Husband Can Come Get My Kids. Can He? He Will Not Work And We Live With His Parents And They Are Mean To Me And One Of My Kids . And Can A Shelter Help Me?
It's tough to answer this without knowing what state you're in.
Generally, a shelter will provide you with a safe place for you and your kids to be for a short period of time until you find somewhere else to go. The location of a woman's shelter is generally not known to anyone but the people who live and work there, to prevent potentially violent abusive husbands from coming there and causing trouble or hurting someone. Presumably, this would a short-term solution for you while you get on your feet, find work and a new home, and file for divorce.
If you file for divorce, the court will eventually decide how custody should be split if you and your ex-husband cannot come to an agreement. In the interim, can he try to get your kids in the interim? Well, they're his kids, too. Many states presume that there is to be an equal split of custody between the two spouses until some other arrangement is finalized.
Contact your local bar association and make an appointment to speak to a family lawyer. Most states require family lawyers to only accept hourly fee arrangements (you cannot pay a lawyer for a case like this on contingency). There may also be a women's law clinic or a legal aid provider if you do not have access to the kind of money you would need to get a family lawyer on retainer, particularly if you live in or near a large city.
Good luck to you and your kids; I hope you find somewhere safe and peaceful to land as you remove yourself from a difficult situation.
How To Become A Corporate Lawyer In The Uk?
I Hav A Great Interest In Becoming A Corporate Lawyer After I Have Finished My Studies. But Im Not Quite Sure How I Should Go About Doing This?
And Also What Is The Minimum And Maximum Wage Of A Corporate Lawyer?
Are you studying law or a non-law degree? By corporate lawyer I'm going to assume you mean a solicitor in one of the major London law firms
If you are studying law you should apply for vacations schemes in your penultimate year and then apply for a training contract at the end of that year, i.e. before your final year. If you are not studying law then you effectively do all this in your final year. Many of the firms run special vacation schemes in the Christmas holidays for non law finalists although they will probably take you on in Easter and the Summer as well, check on their websites. If you are a non-law student you'll have to apply for and complete a GDL (graduate diploma in law, alternatively titled a CPE course) which lasts a year and is an intensive law course to bring you up to speed with the law grads.
After you complete the academic phase of qualification either by a law degree or non-law + GDL you'll have to take the year long Legal Practice Course, LPC. It teaches you some of the more practical stuff. After that year you'll start your two year training contract with a law firm. During this period you'll be rotated round departments so that you get some experience and get a feel for the different practices within the firm. After your two year trainee phase you'll qualify as a solicitor into a department.
From there on your career path is less certain. If your very good, and I mean very good, you might make partner after 6-10 years. This means that you'll be one of the senior lawyers that manage and own the law firm. If you don't make partner you could carry on as an associate solicitor, move to a different firm where you might progress further or take on a role such as senior counsel or senior associate which are roles that are becoming increasingly common as a filler between the assistant/associate solicitors and the partners.
The corporate law firms are likely to be involved in these areas of law:
Corporate Law, including Mergers & Acquisitions, Private Equity, general advisory.
Litigation: dispute resolution, employment, arbitration, contracts.
Finance: banking law, capital markets, securitisations, debt and equity issues, fund regulations including hedge fund law.
If you get a training contract before you leave university the firm will usually pay your GDL and LPC fees and give you a maintenance grant for those years, typically £5000 - 7000 per year. If you don't get a training contract then you'll probably have to finance yourself and apply again during your LPC or GDL year. They may still give you some support if you are successful then.
As for salary, the average for the first year of a training contract is probably around £35 000. Once you're qualified this increases to £60 000-£70 000 if you're kept on. This increases each year as you gain experience. If you make partner, and as I said before this is very hard and only a handful at each firm a year get partnership, you may be a salaried partner or become an equity partner. this means you own a part of the firm and so claim a share of the profits. At the magic circle firms like Linklaters and Slaughter and May as well as a few of the other firms this can mean over a million a year. Check out www.thelawyer for profit per equity partner figures, for example Slaughter and May http://www.thelawyer.com/uk100/2006/law/... has a PEP of £1.12million. This is an average some of the more senior partners will make more than this some will make less. A more middle ranking firm like Eversheds will have a lower PEP, £420 000 for 2006, which though less than half of the magic circle isn't to be sniffed at.
Big American firms like Skadden Arps, Jones Day, Sidley Austin, Shearman & Sterling and Weil, Gotshal & Manges often pay more at the junior levels, particularly for newly qualified solicitors (i.e those who have just completed a two year training contract). However, you likely to have to very long hours. working weekends and leaving work near midnight may not be that rare when there is a big deal going on. It's up to you whether you think you'll cope with that and are happy with your work life balance and pay per hour.
For an overview of firms and their pay check out the inside info on city firms at http://www.rollonfriday.com/. Also read http://www.chambersandpartners.com/Chamb... for more information on individual firms and also for more about the whole process. Other useful sites are http://www.thelawyer.com/l2b/ and http://www.lawcareers.net/.
This is not an easy career to get into. It's stressful, extremely demanding and it is very very competitive and you'll be up against very capable graduates so prepare yourself well. if you're not at university yet work hard at school to get the best grades you can. Apply to the best university you can get into as well. That means preferably Oxford, Cambridge, LSE, UCL, Bristol, Durham, KCL and similar universities.
Possible Fraud With Power Of Attorney, Please Help?
My Dad Married This Woman Four Years Ago Or So. He Got A Power Of Attorney. He Said They Got One Because She Could Use His Money In Emergency Situations. Instead, This Woman Went Behind His Back Got Herself Her Own Apartment And Opened Credit Cards Up In His Name And Had Those Bills Sent To Her Apartment, So My Dad Wouldn't Find Out. Once My Dad Found Out About It, I Don't Know How, They Divorced. She Stole All This Money From Him Behind His Back And Now My Dad Has Been In Financial Trouble But Is Still Making It. My Dad Is A Banker And Says That He Decided Not To Go To Court With Her Because Of The Court Fees And The Months It Would Take To Solve The Case. Is There Anyway Around This, So My Dad Doesn't Have To Pay For A Lawyer Or Court Fees Since She Stole Most Of The Money, Even Though It Is A Power Of Attorney. He Says The Power Of Attorney Was Supposed To Be Used For Emergency Situations And He Trusted Her With It, But She Went Behind His Back. Please Explain What The Power Of Attorney Is Used For In Marriage A Little Bit Better And What Can My Dad Do About This? They Have Been Divorced For Three Years Now, But Is It Even Worth It To Try To Go To Court After All These Years?
First, as a practical matter your dad isn't going to be able to recover the money. It's been spent, and his ex-wife probably either doesn't have the money any more, or it's hidden away somewhere.
Second, you ask "I don't know why he doesn't want me to tell anyone about this situation." The reason: Because your dad knows he was suckered. He's embarrased, especially because, as a banker, he should have known better. And he probably realizes there's no way to get the money back, so he just wants to put this behind him. He was also hurt emotionally. He trusted this woman; he though he loved her. And now he realizes she was just using him. So, it's a painful lesson, but he's trying to move beyond that.
Third, you ask about a power of attorney. A power of attorney is a document that gives one person (in this case his wife) the power to act on the behalf of another person (in this case your dad). There are different versions of power of attorney. Some are "limited powers of attorney." Those are often granted for one specific function. Let's say you want to buy a house, but you're going to be out of town on the day of closing. You can grant someone you trust a "limited power of attorney" to act for you. That means they can sign the papers for you legally. It's limited because it applies only to the house purchase. It doesn't apply to, say, buying a car.
There are also general powers of attorney. And there are different ones for different needs. Someone with a parent in a nursing home might have a limited (or general) power of attorney to sign documents on behalf of the parent. The point, though, is that the power of attorney gives the holder the legal right and ability to act in place of the first person. And that's why--depending on the nature of the power of attorney--you dad may not even have a legal case against the woman.
As difficult as it may be, you really should move on. Your dad's trying to. And--as a banker--he really has a good handle on the situation. But even if he were in some other line of work--teacher, plumber, cab driver, writer, whatever--he's made a decision that he wants to move on with his life and to put this behind him. Try to be supportive. He'll really appreciate it.
Hope that helps.
