Attorney Reveals Vital Information about Artificial Hips in Live Interview

Attorney George McLaughlin

Attorney George McLaughlin

Attorney George McLaughlin has been handling cases involving hips for over
10 years and offers advice for anyone dealing with defective hip replacement.

Once a crack starts, there's no stopping it. Given enough time and enough
activity, this will suddenly just break in two with no notice.”

— Attorney George McLaughlin

DENVER, CO, USA, February 21, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — A Denver attorney who represents people who suffer from defective hip replacements offered valuable tips in a recent Facebook Live interview.

The interview, featuring attorney George McLaughlin, took place on the AskTheLawyers.com™ Facebook page. McLaughlin has been handling cases involving defective hip implants for over 10 years.

He’s seen many cases where a microscopic crack develops on the implant, which gradually grows until the implant eventually snaps.

“And once that crack starts, there's no stopping it,” he said. “Given enough time and enough activity, this will suddenly just break in two with no notice.”

He recently was part of a legal team that secured a $4.5 million verdict on behalf of a man who had to undergo multiple hip replacements and several surgeries. McLaughlin and his team of attorneys and expert witnesses proved to a jury that the man’s Wright Medical PROFEMUR Hip Stem broke because of damage caused by a laser used in the manufacturing process.

“Because of the amount of energy used to laser mark the stem in that location, the stem was damaged, eventually causing the stem to break,” McLaughlin said.

The company appealed, but the plaintiff ultimately won the appeal and was paid.

Attorney McLaughlin Offers Insight into Defective Metal Hip Replacements

If you have a metal-on-metal hip implant, Attorney McLaughlin recommends seeing your surgeon once every year or two. They will test your blood to make sure that you don’t have elevated levels of metal, which is may be a sign that the implant is excessively wearing or corroding.

You should ask your doctor what kind of implant you have, and then ask if there are any reported issues with that type of implant. If you are having any sort of new or worsening hip pain, you should see a doctor immediately.

You should contact a lawyer if your doctor says that your hip needs to be replaced or removed. Additionally, before surgery, request that the hospital save your old hip parts that may be removed in surgery. Many hospitals will discard your old hip mere days after the surgery, which could be valuable evidence for an eventual case.

How to File for Social Security Disability

Saffren and Weinberg - Personal Injury Attorneys

When filing for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits, it is important that you completely understand the entire process ahead of you.”

— Marc Weinberg, Esq.

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, February 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — + +

Deciding to File for SSDI

Living with a physical or mental disability can greatly limit or restrict a person’s ability to work, thus leaving them unable to earn a sufficient living.

If you are unable to work because of a debilitating condition, there are two federal programs available, Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Insurance (SSI), that you can potentially qualify for.

These programs help those who are unable to work due to an ongoing condition by providing them with monetary benefits.

To qualify for SSDI or SSI benefits, you must be able to prove that your condition is disabling, and has lasted for 12 months or longer- or, that the condition is likely to result in death.

Information Needed to Apply

If you decide to apply for social security disability benefits, make sure you have the following documents and information readily available:

Names and birthdates of any minor children and spouse
Dates of any and all marriages and divorces
If applicable, military services discharge information for all periods on active duty
Previous year’s federal income statements (W-2 or 1040)
If you are opting for direct deposit of benefit checks, your bank account and bank routing numbers

And, for your disability report, you will need the following:

Name and phone number for a reference that can speak to a Social Security Administration (SSA) representative regarding your medical condition(s)
Treatment dates, patient ID numbers, names, and contact information of all your relevant medical service providers (also gather any and all of your relevant medical records)
List of prescription medications you are currently taking, as well as the name of the prescribing doctor
Dates of relevant medical tests, as well as names of referring doctors
List providing the past 15 years worth of all jobs, prior to your disability or condition (up to five jobs total)
If applicable, information about any workers’ compensation claims or insurance claims you have filed (you will need the claim number and name, and contact info of insurance company)

Applying for Social Security Disability Online

After you have gathered all of the applicable information, medical evidence, and documents, you may start the SSDI or SSI application process to file your disability claim.

The SSA encourages that applicants apply online for SSDI and SSI benefits, eliminating the need for the applicant to schedule an appointment.

The online application consists of the following three sections:

Disability Benefit Application: This is the first step of the application process, and will take anywhere between 10 and 30 minutes to complete. This portion allows the applicant to save their information as they go along, and return to later to finish if they choose to do so.

Adult Disability Report: This portion of the application can take up to 90 minutes to finish, and also allows the applicant to save their information and return to complete at a later time.

Authorization to Disclose Personal Information Form (PDF): The applicant will need to print this form, fill it out, sign it, and mail it to their nearest Social Security Office. If an applicant is looking to file for benefits on behalf of a disabled child, that can be completed in a similar process here.

Applying for SSDI Benefits In-Person or by Telephone

If you are unable to complete the SSA’s online application form or choose not to do so, you may also call 1-800-772-1213 (TDY 1-800-325-0778 for the hearing impaired). You can also schedule an appointment at your local Social Security Office.

At your appointment, you may be asked to show the following documents in order to prove your eligibility for benefits:

Original birth certificate (not a copy) or equivalent proof of birth
If applicable, naturalization documents
If applicable, U.S. armed forces discharge documents
Completed Disability Report (PDF)
Completed Authorization to Disclose Information Form (PDF)
Previous year’s W-2, 1040, or other tax forms

Need Help Filing Your SSDI Claim? An SSDI Attorney Can Help
When filing for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits, it is important that you completely understand the entire process ahead of you. That is why it is highly recommended that you seek an experienced SSDI attorney for help with your disability application.

CCHR Calls for Investigation Following a Surge in Elder Baker Acts

More than 14,000 of Florida’s elderly, including those with dementia, were sent for involuntary psychiatric examinations in 2017.

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights is calling for an investigation into the rise of elder Baker Acts which carry the known risk of increased mortality.

The trauma of transferring an elderly person carries the risk of elevated mortality, yet seniors are being taken into custody under the Baker Act in ever increasing numbers.”

— Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FL, USA, February 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Annual Baker Act Report released in 2018 revealed that over 7 percent of the total number of involuntary psychiatric exams involved persons 65 years of age or older and that this was a 75% increase from 2001 to 2016. This alarming surge in elder Baker Acts, the common term for an involuntary psychiatric examination, has prompted the Florida chapter of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) to call for an investigation. [1]

The mental health law in Florida allows for the legalized involuntary examination of individuals of all ages including children and the elderly. More than 14,000 of Florida’s elderly, including those with dementia, were sent for involuntary psychiatric examinations in 2017, forcing the stress of physical transport to Baker Act facilities on these seniors despite it being documented that such an experience, and specifically when dealing with a senior suffering from dementia, puts them at risk for depression and anxiety. [2]

“It is known that when long term care elderly patients are relocated that this results in an elevated mortality risk yet seniors are being taken into custody under the Baker Act in ever increasing numbers,” said Diane Stein, President of CCHR Florida.

Even more disturbing is that some senior citizens who find themselves admitted for psychiatric evaluation are later informed that the criteria for Baker Acting was never met, that there was no evidence of mental illness, and instead it was found by clinical staff the victim simply needed rest, proper nutrition, or an adjustment to baseline medication. [3] [4]

But unnecessary Baker Acting isn’t the only abuse raising concern. Polypharmacy, the concurrent use of multiple medications, has doubled in the past decade among retirement-age Americans despite warnings from geriatric medical organizations. Reports show that the number of office visits resulting in multiple pharmaceutical prescriptions has risen from 1.5 million in 2004 to 3.68 million in 2013 — more than a 50% increase — with rural areas showing the largest increase. Those diagnosed with dementia are even more susceptible to polypharmacy and specifically psychotropic drugging. According to the Office of the Inspector General, 304,983 elderly nursing home residents in the U.S. were given dangerous and often deadly antipsychotic drugs, 88% of which were prescribed off-label for dementia. [5] [6]

In response, CCHR is calling for an investigation into the drugging and Baker Acting of the elderly in Florida and is asking for anyone who knows of such abuse to contact their office at 727-442-8820 or visit www.cchrflorida.org to report the abuse online.

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969. For more information visit www.cchrflorida.org.

Defense Firms are Not Prepared for Sanchez Decision

Dr. Greg Vigna

Dr. Greg Vigna

Plaintiff firms quick to understand the ramifications of the Sanchez decision which prevents hearsay evidence as to the cost of care of the injured person

SANTA BARBARA, CA, UNITED STATES, February 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Plaintiff personal injury firms have the burden of presenting admissible evidence of future medical and non-medical care and the cost of this care. Without this evidence the jury will have no basis in their determination of money damages for the future care of an injured person. Plaintiff firms have been quick to understand the ramifications of the Sanchez decision which prevents ‘hearsay evidence’ as to the cost of care obtained from local costing of service and goods from investigation of vendors in the local of the injured person.

Cost of medically necessary good and service of medical and non-medical care historically has been provided by nursing life care planners who obtain data from various sources such as calls to vendors and government obtained pricing sources. This evidence is now barred In California from the Sanchez decision as this data is ‘hearsay.’ Plaintiff firms have shifted to using physicians with the independent skill, knowledge, experience, and training to provide this evidence. Most defense firms to the detriment of their clients continue on with historic practice of using nurses and are getting punished as this evidence is not admissible for jury consideration and plaintiff evidence of cost of care is unopposed.

Greg Vigna, MD, JD, Certified Life Care Planner, owner of Academic Physician Life Care Planning, LLC, and expert in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation provides evidence of future care or injured persons and cost of such care for both plaintiff and defense firms that is Sanchez proof.

Academic Physician Life Care Planning, LLC has access to physician experts in Adult and Pediatric Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Plastic Surgery, Burn Surgery, Trauma Surgery, Orthopedic Trauma Surgery, Orthopedic Spine Surgery, and Interventional Pain specialist. Not only is the evidence Sanchez proof as to the cost of care, it is a Daubert proof opinion of the necessity of medical and non-medical care.

Dr. Vigna understands that plaintiff and defense firms owe a duty to their clients to control cost of litigation but also to provide the best evidence related to the future cost of care. Dr. Vigna provides this evidence and will bring in physician specialists at no additional cost to support the opinions in its life care plans.

Academic Physician Life Care Planning, LLC pricing for its plans is flexible depending on urgency of the work product, the case, and the specialist required. Dr. Greg Vigna, MD, JD, CLCP, a national pharmaceutical injury attorney, practicing physician, and life care planner will discuss pricing options available for both plaintiff and defense firms.

OCR Forcing More Healthcare Companies to Correct HIPAA Practices Due to Patient Complaints

OCR’s Informal Approach May Mask Some Enforcement Activity

OCR has been active in enforcing the medical privacy and data security rules under HIPAA. The problem is that HIPAA only covers healthcare providers, insurers and their contractors and no one else.”

— Dennis Melamed, Editor, Health Information Privacy/Security Alert

ALEXANDRIA, VA, US, February 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Complaints about HIPAA violations have increasingly forced healthcare organizations and their contractors to change their privacy and security policies in the last two years, according to the latest analysis of HHS data by the independent newsletter, Health Information Privacy/Security Alert (HIP/SA).

In analyzing patient complaint data from 2009 through 2018, HIP/SA found that healthcare entities had to take corrective action because of 921 complaints filed in 2018 compared to 863 complaints in 2017 and 727 complaints in 2016.

The data showed that the increases reversed a steady decline in actionable complaints, which started in 2010 and lasted through 2015. The number of entities forced to make changes due to HIPAA complaints peaked in 2010 when 2,709 complaints prompted changes in privacy and/or data security practices.

The larger numbers of complaints were due in part to the HITECH Act requirements to report breaches to the HHS Office for Civil Rights (OCR) and notify patients. That made it more likely that patients would be filing complaints that fell within OCR’s health data privacy and security jurisdiction.

The number of actionable complaints dropped precipitously in 2014, however. But that decline was due in part to OCR’s change in approach to HIPAA complaints.

In 2014, OCR started reporting on how often it intervened informally by providing technical assistance to healthcare organizations, their contractors and patients. The agency did not formally require corrective action but it did put healthcare organizations on notice in the event other complaints were filed or violations were detected.
By the end of 2014, OCR said it had intervened in 7,883 cases. At the end of 2018, OCR said it had informally intervened in a total of 32,120 cases.

“OCR has been active in enforcing the medical privacy and data security rules under HIPAA. The problem is that HIPAA only covers healthcare providers, insurers and their contractors and no one else,” observed Dennis Melamed, editor and publisher of HIP/SA.

It is also important to remember that under the HIPAA complaint system, anyone can lodge a complaint – not only patients, Melamed noted. It is not uncommon for other organizations to file HIPAA complaints against other covered entities.

A fuller version of HIPAA and HITECH Act enforcement is forthcoming in the next issue of Health Information Privacy/Security Alert.
