The delay in obtaining a D&C is likely not actionable unless the delay caused you actual, substantial injury. However the failure to provide you an injection that may have stayed the miscarriage needs to be fully evaluated. Use the Find A Lawyer tab on this site to locate excellent candidates for your consideration. Best of luck.
I agree with attorney Shah and you should be able to get a free consultation to review your case with an attorney.
Contact the NC Civil Liberties Union. Ask for their prison project. Ask for the names of their "cooperating attorneys." They give free consults and specialize in prison cases which are different from malpractice.
