You always have a right to sue if you think that there has been medical malpractice. All you have to do is find a lawyer that will take your case. If you try to become part of a class action lawsuit most monies will go to lawyers, not the members of the lawsuit. I don't think that there is a lawyer who would take a case as vague as this one sounds.

We have attorneys that have decided a class action in is order, and are preparing it. Also like I stated in this original thread I'm a hard working man, not in it for the money, just justice for the people involved including my family so I do not care to split the verdict winnings with any and all they want to see justice done.

This class-action lawsuit is. It is being filed against Pikeville Medical Center on the basis of negligence and lack of quality healthcare, not personal injury. These incidents are, indeed, related.
But then each case would have to be looked at individually to prove this; then it could not be a class action lawsuit. It has to be a same kind of particular event.

All I can say is good luck to you. You obviously have very strong feelings about this.

Here is the situation people of Pike County. Has everyone noticed the new "sign away you're rights paper" PMC tries to get everyone to sign? Well I will show you why, YES THEY HAVE BEEN SUCCESSFULLY SUED IN THE PAST YEAR, THE TRUTH IS COMING OUT!
Here are some of the details:
Date: 12-10-2009
Case Style: Buddy Hackney v. Mark Swofford, M.D.
Case Number:
Judge: Steven Combs
Court: Circuit Court, Pike County, Kentucky
Plaintiff's Attorney: Truman Chafin, H. Truman Chafin Law Firm, Williamson, West Virginia
Defendant's Attorney:
Description: Buddy and Geneva Hackney sued Mark Swofford, M.D. on a medical negligence (medical malpractice) theory claiming that he acted below the standard of care when he performed surgery on Mr. Hackney in defendant's office and the follow up care provided. Mr. Hackney claimed that he suffered permanent personal injuries from the procedure.
Outcome: Plaintiff's verdict for $4.617 million including $117,612 for medical expenses and $3.75 million in non-economic damages.
The few good doctors and staff at this place has been replaced and removed for disagreeing with them and trying to help good people!
THIS HOSPITAL THINKS THEY CAN TREAT YOU ANYWAY THEY WANT AND THAT THE "LITTLE PEOPLE" CAN'T STAND UP TO THEM LETS SHOW THEM THEY ARE WRONG! THEY SAY THEY HAVE NEVER LOST A LAWSUIT WELL WE ALL KNOW DIFFERENT NOW! THERE IS YOUR FACTS IN BLACK AND WHITE.
MY FAMILY IS IN THE PROCESS OF FILING SUIT AGAINST THEM FOR DAMAGES AGAINST A FAMILY MEMBER, IF YOU OR ONE OF YOUR LOVED ONES HAS BEEN INJURED, HURT, ABUSED, OR HAD THEIR SITUATION MADE WORSE BY THIS HORRIBLE INSTITUTION FEEL FREE TO JUMP ON BOARD. I AM A HARD WORKING MAN THAT DOESN'T CARE ABOUT THE MONEY SO I DON'T CARE TO DO A CLASS ACTION AND SPREAD AROUND THE VERDICT!
LETS STAND UP FOR OURSELVES AND OUR FAMILIES AND MAKE PMC FIX THE MESS THEY HAVE DONE TO US IN OUR MOUNTAINS, THE LAW IS THE LAW AND EVEN THEY CANNOT ESCAPE A JURY'S JUSTICE FOR HARM DONE. JUST POST BELOW MY FELLOW PIKEVILLE NEIGHBORS!
Just in case my show of support doesn't show it, I'm also in. Pikeville Medical Center's lack of quality healthcare has also brought harm to a number of people close to me and I'm quite tired of watching them thrive while decent, hard-working Kentuckians are suffering. I will pass on the information you have provided here and have them get in contact with you at the proper time.

I mean no one made you go there. And like always remeber if you get sick its no because you did anything wrong O lord no it was those evil people that didn't use their jesus powers to heal you.

I really hope all this comes back on you all I hope you all get took to the cleaners by someone that is an even bigger cheater then you.
Anyway go ahead and bitch and moan about PMC next time go to Williamson and see how wonderful they are.

You say you already have a attorney? Didnt they warn you about posting on topix, facebook, myspace, ect about a court case? As far as the definition to get a class action lawsuit, whatever you say happened to someone in yoru family, all that joined the suit would have have to have someone that the same thing happened to, by the same doctor, or the same department. Do you know what will be a hoot? You read up on that, see the big judgement, think to yourself that you are gonna get some of that money... So you do this, lose, then they turn around and sue you. Wont that be a hoot!

A class action law suit is a horrible idea. You do know that when something goes class action, that means attorneys get rich and the people involved in the suit get next to nothing- right?

More importantly, malpractice is a very steep hill to climb. It takes specific action, or inaction, on the part of the physician. You cannot lump it into a class action suit, because each individual case will have to be judged on its own merit.

If you want to sue the pants off the doctors, go ahead. The doctors can easily go elsewhere and leave Pike County with nobody to take their place. A doctor will never have a hard time finding a job. However, "under served" areas such as this have a difficult time attracting doctors. We already see cases where physicians are only here because they aren't citizens and the only way to retain their visa is to work somewhere like this. The pool of people in that situation is small, so I hope you don't think you could replace all the doctors like that.

As for pmc, they do just a good of a job as about any other hospital, you can get on any topix forum, in any area an you will find people bitc hing an complaining about there local hospital. If pmc wasn't here where would you go for emergency care? Pmc's is now a top of the line ER, an with in the next year will be a level 2 trama center... You all can whine an cry all you want because PMC wouldn't give you free treatment or free drugs, but at the end of the day if PMC wasn't here, we would all be up shi ts creek without a paddle...

Just one more statement for your igorant statements. You say the proof is right there in front of us that PMC lost a lawsuit? Even though they are not listed as a defendent? One more wrench to throw in your gears as far as your whole thread and numerous cut and pastes are concerned. You do realize that Dr. Swolford is not even an employee at PMC? Yes, PMC had the building that the surgery was done in, but it was a rented room. None of PMC employees were there when the surgery was done. It was all Dr Swolford. So how exactly did PMC lose a lawsuit they wasnt even listed as a defendant in?

All the postings from Danville Kentucky are by Jonah Lee, with the wee- well you know what Stevens.

I, nor Amy are fans of PMC. However, be advised that any class action by Hamilton and Stevens AKA, Pea & Wee;shysters at law will be a big waste of time and money.

Pam May has her act together and will make chump change of Pea and Wee.

I wouldn't think so. Surely a lawyer has better things to do with his/her time then get on topix to try to drum up business.
Quit Going To PMC

If you want to HURT PMC then hurt them where it will do the most harm.....in their pocketbooks.....Simply quit going there. If they dont have any patients, then no revenue will be generated and the place will be sold to a major hospital chain thus destroying the May dynasty. Simply quit going there. Take your family to another hospital.

**Sniff Sniff**

I smell a TROLL.

Really you cant take say 50 people with different complaints and say its a class action lawsuit. In order to be a class action all parties inured must have been injured in the same manner. For example, if PMC was dumping medical waste into the river and contaminated the city water supply and then a lot of people got sick, then yes, you would have the grounds for a class action lawsuit.**watch the movie Being Erin Brockavich,****spelling** Or you can use the class actions against the Pharmacutical companies for a medication.

However from what i have read this seems to be a bunch of differnt people with differnt complaints against differnt doctors. You might be able to swing the class action side due to the fact that they are all associated with PMC.

But remember alot of doctors are not actually employees of PMC. You can see signs posted everywere that doctors such as ER docs, radiologist, cardiologist and such are just contracted with the hospital but are actually employeed by separate groups. For example the ER docs are employees of MESA **Marshal Emergency Services Assosiates** and this is why you recieve a bill from them separate from the hospital itself.

**Last line of the 1st paragraph should have read**

"Or you can use the class action lawsuits against a Pharmacutical company because of the effects of a medication for example."

Tell me one hospital that has not been in a law suit due to a family trying to fill a void with money. Seriously the biggest reason there in the hospital is because they have abused there body for 50 years or more. I understand that if someone died due to a doctor getting medical records mixed up and putting a penis enlargement in a patient that needed a double bypass that's a possible suit but negligence I can't see due to the fact that a medical professional can not make you follow his or her orders it is a mutual effort. In college the professor will give you a map but he don't give a crap if you get lost along the way. Most of the time patients don't follow the orders and for example if the doctor recommends you go to another hospital that specializes in the field that pertains to your illness I recommend you don't lay around untill you die from bed sores it's possibly worth the extra effort to go even if it cost a little more. pmc Ed and icu is a place to treat you untill your stable then ship you out unless the issue pertains to cardiac or cancer then your in the right place. Pmc has a great heart program and oncology program.
