My issue is related...

My issue is related to a medical record 7 years ago. The record was found to have misinformation was not stored in compliance with Hippa. The hospital apologized and the compliance department stored the record under an alias name with different demografic info however the record is still there and i have been suffering from the fear and pain for 7 years. I want to request a destruction of the record since it met the state requirment for 7 year.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

MI

Sometimes people aren't aware that experts don't get any credit for the time and effort that we spend on our answers unless you rate it positively (3 or more stars - 5 is definitely appreciated!). If you have follow up questions I'd be happy to answer them as well. You CAN still ask follow up questions after rating. There may be a lag between your question and my answer; this is because I'm either not at my computer or helping someone else but I assure you I will ALWAYS come back and answer your questions.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
