Customer Question

I'm 29 & trying to decide if seeing a lawyer is worth the cost - I don't know if I have even a chance of winning a case. My entire immediate family has a rare form of chronic migraine which is resistant to standard treatment. I managed to complete high school but after 3 years of college had to come home & have been incapacitated by pain ever since. Also, age 21 I was diagnosed with a condition which has required 5 brain surgeries in as many years, and will require more throughout my life. For years my pain was as managed as possible (pain tolerable). My doctor discontinued my pain treatment NOT due to my doing anything wrong or my condition resolving but because of "medicolegal issues" regarding use of pain medication. He referred me to my provider's pain management program, and they refuse to adequately treat me despite my compliance with every single request. The pain now has me severely depressed. My records back all of this up. Do I have a case for being under-treated?

Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. Based upon what you shared above, it would appear you are trying to determine if you have a possible medical malpractice case. If so, you should be aware, that these cases are typically taken on a contingency basis, so it should not cost you anything up front. As such, you can set up a consultation with a medical malpractice attorney, bring your records and speak with them and they can determine if there is a good faith basis to proceed and sue. Please let me know if you have any follow up questions or need any clarification on something which I stated above. Also, remember to rate my service at the top of this page, before exiting the site, so I can receive credit for my help. I hope you found it to be Excellent!
