I've been left with a misshaped and scarred umbilicus, a visible indentation on my left side and a very irregular and bumpy scar.
Possibly, but this is the law you must consider:
The Statute of Limitations provides a period of time in which your lawsuit must be filed, and in the event a lawsuit is not filed within that time, you may be forever barred from taking any further legal action.
It is important to note that an action for medical malpractice shall be commenced within two (2) years from the time the incident giving rise to the action occurred or within two (2) years from the time the incident is discovered or should have been discovered with the exercise of due diligence.
It is best you consult a lawyer immediately. See www.FL-PI-Lawyer.com
Probably not. What you have described is a medical malpractice claim. Florida has a two year statute of limitations for medical malpractice claims. However, there are limited exceptions. It is always a good idea to consult a Florida attorney who handles medical malpractice claims.
In addition to consulting a medical malpractice attorney you can contact the Department of Health and an investigation into the medical licensees will be conducted at no cost to you. While the Department does not recover compensation for you if a violation is found a public administrative complaint will be filed. This is something to discuss with your attorney.
