Previously i was at an institution (criminal) and had a blood vessel burst in the side of my head. it happened very close to my ear and caused my skin to peel away from the cartilage and fill with blood and fluid. i was refused a doctor for almost 2 months while my ear just became larger and exponentially more painful. i ended up lancing my own ear because i couldn't take the pain anymore. i was finally taken to a specialist after i lanced it and he was appalled. my ear has went improperly treated for so long that the fluid had eaten some of the cartilage away. i had to have surgery and now my ear is hideous. am i able to sue the department of corrections?
