Customer Question
A friend arrested for...

A friend arrested for DUI was held down for a blood test and then the hospital released the test results to the police (below the legal limit, by the way.) She has approached the hospital for settlement for a HIPAA violation. What should she ask for?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Oregon

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

She took diversion and finished it without any glitches.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Not that I can think of, thanks.

Did the police have a warrant OR did the police order the blood test under the Oregon Implied Consent statute?

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.
