Austin, TX asked in Medical Malpractice for Texas

Q: I was in the hospital getting over a heart attack. They put me on a bench and I fell and broke me neck c-2 vert.

They stopped billing me on the same day. I am still walking wit a walker almost two years later. I feel like I have a malpractice suit against them. I can not find an attorney to take the case and time is running out to file.I think this can be settled out of court.

A: You are right that you only have two years to file a lawsuit against the hospital. There are a number of factors involved with this type of case and you should find an attorney as soon as possible if you still want to file a lawsuit.
