A Comprehensive Medical Summary Is Critical to Litigate Complex Injury Cases

Preparing a written summary of the medical records in a complex injury case, whether it’s medical malpractice, workers’ compensation, personal injury, or Social Security disability, is well worth the time.

13 years and 8 months behind bars, according to NBC 7 San Diego. Described by one victim as an “excellent actor,” this non-lawyer’s stint impersonating a lawyer did not pay.

Orange U Glad 2 C Me?

Or, Yes, I Am the Orange Powerpuff Girl The Goodwill Fangirl almost never came back after The Teen’s bone marrow transplant. (We’re doing third person today.
