I would respectfully recommend that you review the Legal Guide I have published on Avvo.com which deals with medical malpractice and what it is. If, after reviewing the Guide, you believe you are a victim of medical negligence, you should contact an attorney as soon as possible.
Attorneys here on Avvo.com can not tell you whether you have a claim or not. You will need a medical expert to confirm that your Dr. deviated from the accepted standard of care. Do not delay in seeking counsel.
