Well, the main question is this, how and when can I file a lawsuit against 5 different defendants. Which are all involved in the same medical procedure.
1. Healthcare provider
2. Heatlthcare sub provider
3. Emegency center
4. Medical Center
5. Doctor who performed the surgery, and or the follow up personnel.
The healthcare provider agreed to pay for my hospital expenses, but not the therapy which was the most important part. Now I cannot bend my leg or run or walk without obvious signs of instability. All this came about after a few letters were exchanged.

I need more information. As for the doctors, I need to know what they did and what your injury was in detail. You have to show they fell below the standard of care. As for the insurance company, I would need to see the policy to determine what was and was not covered. Your action against the insurance company is for bad faith. It is 2 different lawsuits. I practice in California and in Indiana. I go back and forth. If you have any documentation such as the policy and medical records I could review them.

You need to obtain repersentation immediately for your protection. The statute of limitations for professional negligence is one year from the date of discovery. There are also notice requirements in California which must be complied with prior to filing. Contact me directly at (619) 222-3504.
