Can I file a claim against the Dr. and the state for sexual battery, aggravated sexual battery, and sexual assualt?

Asked over 2 years ago - Augusta, GA

I was in a mental health hospital bleeding from my anus and put in complaints; however when the drs. examined me they touched my sexual parts and penetrated my anus with no intention of diagnosing my problems, and I was left bleeding for month with this same treatment. I have a witness and evidence showing that I was left bleeding and no diagnosis was ever given. Also, the drs. nor anyone form the state concted my federal gaurdian to request the do those things as I was considered incompetent--Melton V. State , 282 Ga. App 685, 639 S.E. 2d 411 (2006). They also didn't ask to penetrate or touch but stated that they were going to--force is not an element (Zip v. State, 276 Ga.App. 466, 623 S.E.2d 569 [205]). And, how do I find an attorney that will represent me using Avvo?
