I agree that you may have a claim. Pursuing it may be a matter of how this issue has impacted your life. For example if you have been unable to work or can relate the loss of a job for some period of time that will increase the amount of economic damages that were caused by any failure. If you have suffered two years of pain and suffering there may be a risk of spending more than potentially could be recovered. Each state has enacted laws which make the cost of bringing a claim extremely high. It is interesting that the major issues involving medical negligence picked up by most media has to do with frivilous law suits when in fact, meritorious suits have been procedurally barred unless you are injured badly enough to warrant spending about 250K plus in litigation and expert witness fees.
