Do police have access to blood taken at the hospital when a doctor took it?
I was driving and in an accident on Saturday night. I was conscious after the accident but taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure afterwards. At the hospital the doctor came in and took blood prior to the police arrival. I was told the sample was to make sure I was ok - the accident was on the severe side. Do the police have access to that blood sample for testing? When the police did show up they never mentioned the sample or anything along those lines of testing.
Yes, they have the right to that sample

Negligence, gross negligence or reckless?
Please consider this scenario and let me know how you might expect a judge to rule: The owner of a property has hired an independent contractor to do some work that involves the cutting of metal fixtures. After the work was finished, two hours later, a fire that was smoldering in an enclosed space destroyed the building. Causation is clearly the contractor. However, immediately after the contractors left, the owner went to lock up and noticed a burnt or burning metal smell. Under testimony, owner states that she associated this smell with the work of cutting metal that had occured immediately prior. The workers also testified that there was a burning or burnt metal smell while the work was being done, as is normal. They testified that they smelled no odor upon leaving. *more*
Does not sound like Gross negligence or recklessness. One could reasonably expect a smell from cutting such as this...
