I do have all my dental records including the models, etc. I found a lawyer who wants to see them. I was told by this lawyer that we have one year from the date of my pain, to file a dental malpractice case. I will be seeing the lawyer soon. If he doesn't file, can I file? And if not, why. He said it sounds to him like I have a good case, but of course he wants to see the records. If for some reason, Do I have the right to file and to represent myself?
