What Do You Think About Medical Malpractice Awards?
&Quot;There Is Now A Great Controversy Over The Amount Monetary Awards Granted To Plaintiffs In Malpractice Lawsuits Brought Against Doctors And Other Medical Personnel By Patients.&Quot;
Some Awards, For Instance, Go Into The Millions. Do You Feel That Such Rewards Are Too Much? Do You Believe That There Should Be A Limit On The Amount Of Money That Can Be Awarded, And Why Or Why Not?
The reality is that the publicity about medical malpractice has been a disservice to many patients and probably been bad for health care.
According to a peer-reviewed study by (I think Harvard Medical School), fewer than 5% of victims of malpractice act on a claim. The few that do must find a doctor familiar with the area of practice in the community to review the claim and say that it has merit before they can even go forward. This is really hard, even for the best claim, and the money outlay is significant. Then they have to get through aggressive discovery by the insurance company, which can look into every aspect of the patient's life. Then they have to get past an opportunity for the Judge to throw it out. Then they have to prove to a jury of usually 12 people that they were harmed by negligence, and they must prove damages. They don't get anything for attorneys' fees unless they show the doctor was reckless or malicious. If the jury makes an award, which more than half don't, the Judge can reduce the award, but not increase it, or disregard the jury and throw it out. Then they have to survive one or two appeals.
Nobody knows how much the malpractice insurers are making, and they have a bizarre exemption from the antitrust laws that normally prohibit price fixing. Premiums have gone up, while claims and awards have gone down. "Defensive medicine" only seems to be practiced on people who can pay, so there is some doubt that liability is a cause rather than a pretext for the providers to make more money.
Contrary to suspicion you may have, I am not a malpractice lawyer. I have never handled a Plaintiff's malpractice claim, although I occasionally work for doctors. I am a lawyer by profession, but I work more as an economist. I started off believing that we have a problem with malpractice claims, delved into it, and changed my opinion 180 degrees. Problem in our society is that there is no PR campaign for people hurt by occasional careless doctors or hospitals.
Is The Search Legal? Help!!!?
Ok I Was On The Freeway Going At Regualr 65 Mph Speed, I Saw A High Patrol Car Right Behind Me But He Did Not Siren Or Turn His Lights On, After 30 Sec To A Minute He Turned His Lights On And Siren. There Was Nowhere For Me To Pull Over Because There Was A Merging Lane To My Right So I Stayed In My Lane And Got Off The Freeway At The Next Exit Because I Felt It Was The Safest Thing For Me To Do , Wen I Got Off The Freeway I Pulled Into A Neighborhood. After I Stopped He Ordered Me To Get Out Of The Car And Cuffed Me,He Asked Me Why I Was Running From The Cops And I Said I Was Looking For A Safe Place To Stop. He Then Started To Search My Car And Found Less Than A Gram Of Marijuana. After He Wrote All The Paperwork He Told Me That I Was Pulled Over For Tinted Windows.. Was The Search Legal??
Also Can The Cop Prove That I Was &Quot;Trying To Run Away&Quot; Without Writing Anything About It On The Citation
I Need Help
No. That was an illegal search. Get a lawyer and file a motion to suppress. Did you consent to the search? If not, then it was illegal. And it is perfectly legal to find a safe place to pull over as you described. As a woman, I will never pull over anywhere that I feel it to be unsafe and that includes desolate areas. It is legal to continue driving at a safe speed until you enter a populated area.
Steven's right about the fact that they will try to give you a failure to yield. But you can just as easily fight that and win on that as well. However; it is still not grounds for a search. That was still illegal. Police love to use that trick. Get an attorney. Don't get all your legal advice on here from annoynomous avatars.
Is Getting A Lawyer'S Help From Legal Aid The Same Thing As Having A Court Appointed Attorney/Public Defender
Legal aid defends people for all sorts of legal issues. They do not have to be accused of a crime. The legal aid office is staffed with lawyers that work in that office.
A court appointed attorney is chosen from a pool of regular practicing attorneys that have requested to be put on the list They make a set sum per hour, that is paid through the court system.
Many attorneys want to be on the list to be court appointed. It is guaranteed income. The are still free to take on cases from people that have walked in off the street and need their services too.
How Can You Get Legal Weekend Custody?
My Bf Wants To Know How Can He Get Weekend Custody Of His Child. He Doesn'T Pay Child Support Either. He Wants To Know All The Steps To Doing So. Thanks Best Answer 10 Points!!!!
Legal visitation with his child requires him filing for joint custody (I am assuming he's not trying to take the child from the mother, so he's not looking for sole custody, and there is no legal custody agreement currently in effect). HOWEVER, when he does that, child support will be brought up and he will begin paying it. Be warned that if the situation with the mother is acrimonious, she can ask for back child support from the day the child was born.
Now, to answer your question, he needs to contact his local court (I am assuming he lives in the same jurisdiction as the mother and the child), go to the family division, talk to the clerk, tell the clerk what he wants to do and the clerk will give him the necessary documents with instruction.
I Hired A Traffic Attorney, But To My Surprise It Is Costing Me Way More Than It Would To Just Pay The Fine?
I Thought A Traffic Attorney Would Plead My Case For Me. All-In-All It Is Costing Me A Close To 500 Dollars, On A 129. Ticket.
I'M Supposed To Pay For Defensive Driving For A Failure To Yield Ticket.
So Because I Wanted To See This In Attorney In Action For Myself-- Just To See If He Was Actually Working In My Favor. Mind You, I Never Met Nor Spoke With Him. I Only Spoke With His Secretaries.
So I Show Up To My Scheduled Court Date, And A Woman Asks Is Anyone Here For Attorney So And So.
I Said Yes. She Said What Is Your Name And I Told Her. The She Says You Are Free To Go Because Your Attorney Will Try To Get Your Court Date Postponed.
So I Called To The Court To See What Exactly Transpired And They Told Me They Were Not Allowed To Discuss Anything With Me. I Have To Ask My Attorney.
This Seems Like A Gimmick
All Money Goes Through My Attorney'S Office
You need to speak to your attorney.
But yes, the cost of an attorney is almost always more expensive than the INITIAL cost of a ticket.
When calculating the value of the attorney, you should also consider court cost (depends on your county, ask the clerk at traffic court and they can tell you the actual court cost for your case), the cost of any classes required by the court, the cost of future insurance if you do not beat the ticket, etc, etc.
In the long run, the lawyer usually costs less than the TOTAL cost of the ticket.
