Can I sue a nurse for the cause of my sons cleft lip & palate?

Asked over 1 year ago - Canada, KY

When I was about 17 or 18 I was told It might be impossible to have kids. Cuz of my irregular women monthly, and years later I got pregnant and didn't find out I was pregnant until I was 5 months, I had no signs whatsoever I didn't even show. But in march (one month pregnant) I when to this clinic after hours cause I had this worse stomach pain. And she prescribe me septra and was in IV. And the nurse took blood samples. And send it out to a medical lab. And didn't hear nothing after that. Wouldn't they have known I was pregnant?

If so you may want to consult attorneys who specialize in claims against the drug manufacturer to advise you.
