    Lawyers agree

    Answered . You'll need to consult with a personal injury attorney. There are several with profiles here on Avvo. Speak to lawyers who primarily practice personal injury.

    One concern is whether a statute of limitations has run, either in New Hampshire or Florida. Waiting a long time to file suit can sometimes be a hindrance, even if you can get in front of a judge or jury. Your attorney should address this in the consultation. Get a consultation immediately, because if the statute has not run, it may happen very soon.

    Good luck.

    Lawyers agree

    Answered . You should consult with a lawyer immediately. The case would most probably be based in Florida, if there is a medical malpractice case, but it could also be elsewhere if the case involved a defective product, such as the type of mesh that was used. A New Hampshire lawyer can review the matter and then refer you to an out of state lawyer, if necessary. There also may be statute of limitations issues, so time is of the essence.

    Answered . I agree with the previous posters: Contact a local medical malpractice / personal injury attorney. If the case is worth pursuing, they should be able to refer you to a reputable attorney in Florida for a consultation. I hope this helps. Take care.
