Keep trying to find a lawyer, or you can pay one to prepare a suit for you. Not a good idea, as these are hard to handle and expensive to prosecute. If no atty wants it, it may mean there isnt enough damages to you, or there are proof problems. Good luck.

There will be a lawyer out there who'll take the case so keep trying and you'll find one. You,will need to file suit before the Statute of Limitations runs to preserve your right to bring a claim.

If you numbness and pain to this day, and it can be traced to the morphine, then you may have a decent case BUT has anyone ever linked the pain to the morphine? Have you sought treatment for pain and numbness? What does your neurologist say? At 250 an hour, you'll have dozens of attorneys willing to take the case regardless of your answers. Without acceptable answers to those questions very few.

You should immediately contact attorneys in your home county. It may take time, but you should find someone who can take your case. However, if you have spoken to 5 or 6 law firms and no one is interested, then perhaps there really is no negligence to speak of. Most lawyers won't take a case on a contingency fee that they don't have some expectation of winning.

The AVVO response or other communication by Caruso Law Offices does not create an attorney-client relationship. Please call us at 505-883-5000 if you would like to discuss your case in more detail.
