    More important thing is following up with your medical treatment. I don't recommend trying to handle any case without an attorney. Most attorneys will provide a free consultation - I suggest you find a local attorney who can help.

    This is a very unfortunate position to be in and I'm sad to say, often times a reality. You should certainly have a meeting with your lawyer about the other potential sources of recovery.
