As a lawyer who does medical malpractices the question I would have is whether you have suffered any long term effects from the infection. Although I can imagine how traumatic is was for you to be away from you newborn to deal with the infection, if you have healed and have no long term effect (hopefully that is the case) the cost of pursuing a case would greater than the potential recover. If you think you have some significant ongoing damages, then I suggest you contact a lawyer who regularly handles medical malpractice cases. Good luck.
