Personal injury or malpractice? Consult an attorney | Legal Affairs

You’ve been going to your orthopedic specialist for a long time to treat ongoing swelling in your knees, and every month you receive injections to curb the swelling and your pain.

Suddenly, one of the injections causes a reaction, and for the last year, your knee aches like never before. Though you like your doctor, you’re furious that the knee has never been the same. There is no remedy on the horizon, and you and your family are considering legal action.

You’re wondering if you should be considering a malpractice lawsuit, although in many ways the medical issues you are now facing could be called a personal injury.

What is the legal course of action?

“When someone’s carelessness causes injury to another person, a personal injury case may be filed in court,” said Brian Eisen of The Eisen Law Firm in Beachwood.

“Medical malpractice is a specific type of personal injury case, where a medical professional – a doctor, a nurse, a hospital, for example – is careless and causes injury while treating a patient.

“So, if a doctor drives through a red light and smashes into you, you may file a personal injury case against the doctor. But if the same doctor prescribes you the wrong medicine and causes you injury, you may file a medical malpractice case.”

“Medical malpractice claims require proving that the medical provider did not provide reasonable medical care, and that failure resulted in harm to the patient,” Jonathan Mester, managing partner at Nuremberg Paris Injury Lawyers, said. “Personal injury cases are simply claims resulting from injuries which are alleged to have been caused by another person, including car accidents, slips and falls, etc.”

In some states, financial remedy against doctors in a malpractice case is capped at $300,000. That turns away many firms;

Bannon’s Lawyer Seeks to Exit Jan. 6 Contempt Case Before Trial

(Bloomberg) — The lawyer defending Steve Bannon against contempt charges over his refusal to cooperate with the Congressional Jan. 6 committee asked to withdraw from the case because he may be called as a trial witness.

Robert Costello made his request to US District Judge Carl Nichols in a motion filed Friday in federal court in Washington. The lawyer’s move comes just before Bannon’s trial is set to begin on July 18, but Costello noted that Nichols had yet to rule on an earlier request that he be allowed to testify for the defense about his interactions with the Jan. 6 panels and prosecutors.

“If the Court decides to prevent me from testing, there will be no pathway to inform the Jury about the communications with the Select Committee or the three prosecutors in this case,” Costello said. He accused them of interfering with his attorney-client relationship with Bannon by trying to access his phone records.

Bannon, a longtime Donald Trump adviser, was indicted in November on two counts of contempt of Congress for refusing to comply with subpoenas from the House Jan. 6 committee seeking his testimony and production of documents.

He has previously argued that he relied in good faith on Costello’s advice concerning the subpoenas, but Nichols ruled in April that he could not make that case to the jury. Bannon has more recently sought to delay his trial, arguing that the ongoing televised Jan. 6 committee hearings could prevent him from getting a fair trial.

KARACHI: Jibran Nasir, the lawyer representing Dua Zahra’s father, Monday hoped that her husband will be in jail within 24 hours in the light of a new medical report determining her age to be between 15-16 years.

He was speaking to the media outside a local court where the medical report was submitted determining the girl’s actual age. The panel was constituted on the court’s order after Dua’s father challenged a medical report which declared her to be between 16-17 years of age.

The fresh report has concluded that the girl is 15 to 16 years of age, however, the lawyer said that she is “nearest to 15 years”.

Jibran Nasir hoped that after the new medical report, “Sindh police [will] take Zaheer Ahmed into custody by tomorrow afternoon.”

He has a case of kidnapping filed against him, the lawyer said, adding that policemen were smiling and taking pictures with Zaheer.

He further added that two weeks ago, senior police officials had said that there was nothing in the case, the case was closed, and today the medical report shows that the case was never properly investigated, to begin with.

“This case is a charge sheet against the Sindh police and the Sindh government,” he said.

He added that Dua’s case was related to kidnapping and child marriage.
