possibly being sued

  1. I just got a letter stating a 180 day notice of intent to bring a claim and suit on myself and other nurses, aides, and my employer for an incident that happened almost a year ago. Its is pursuant to Ohio revised code 2305.113. I had almost forgotten about this and had to talk to the police about it once, but like I said its been awhile. This has me very worried. Any idea what I should do? I know my employer has a record of firing people over small issues and I recently filed bankruptcy so I don't have a lot of assets. I live basically paycheck to paycheck and can't really afford a lawyer and can't lose my job either or I'd be on the streets or have to move back in with my parents (and I'm not very young).

    Contact your malpractice insurance carrier immediately. Do not discuss the case with anyone, including posting about it here.
