How unfortunate for your family. Based on what you have said, you probably have a claim against the other driver's insurance. You really should consult an injury attorney to ensure you get what you're entitled to.
You may have a vaild medical malpractice claim and it may involve more than your suregon, e.g., the anesthesiologist. There is generally a one year statute of limitations but your statute may be shorter depending on the circumstances. You should contact a lawyer practicing in this area immediately to discuss your claim.
Your health comes first, of course. Don't stop seeking good medical care to correct the poor placement of the IUD. The procedure to insert the device may have been done incorrectly, or the device itself may be defective, or both (or neither). Medical device claims can be tricky, because a certain level of FDA testing and approval canimmunize a device from a products liability suit. Please take care of your health and consult an atorney if you feel any significant harm has been caused to you.
It is possible that you have a valid medical malpractice claim. Preeclampsia is a serious pregnancy complication and should not be allowed to progress to eclampsia. Both eclampsia and preeclampsia can cause profound injuries to the mother and baby. Some of these injuries take some time to manifest but you have a limited amount of time to file suit. You should talk to a medical malpractice attorney immediately.
Without lasting damages the costs of litigation would probably outweigh the award you might recieve. Foutunately for you, the harm caused to you appears to be temporary. Ask your doctor about what harm was caused to you and if there's anything that needs to be done about it.
I am sorry to hear about your condition but let me be frank. Delayed diagnosis of cancer cases in CA generally hinge upon chances of survival going from likely (51% or greater) to unlikely because of the delay. An expert oncologist will need to review medical records to make that determination. Consult with a medical malpractice attorney to see if that level of review is warranted for your claim. And put your health first, get the medical care you need.
It's possible something was missed by the radiologist or the doctor in interpreting the films which would have required immediate follow up. Request a copy of the medical records including radiology reports. Our website will walk you through how to do that. www.janmulligan.com. Then contact a medical malpractice attorney to see if they can help you.
What you have described is a possible medical battery. In CA, there are strict limitations on the damages you can collect for medical negligence actions. But in cases of intentional acts, such as battery, the limitations do not apply. You should contact a CA medical legal attorney as soon as possible to have a record review performed. I recommend my firm in San Diego, at www.janmulligan.com, but there are many. Good luck!
