Sorry to hear about this. As with all potential claims, your facts would have to be analyzed by an attorney; after obtaining all necessary information. It's extremely difficult to tell by what you mention above whether you have a case. Consider contacting a local attorney, which you can find on AVVO, and discussing with him or her. Most attorneys will consult with you for no charge. Good luck.
