A: An Idaho attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for a week. I'm very sorry for your trauma. Although what was said to you would deemed by many as insensitive and heartless, it could difficult for an attorney to move forward with it as a case based on intentional infliction of emotional distress, medical malpractice, or other related tort theory. You could try to arrange a free initial consult with attorneys who work with torts/civil litigation to discuss the matter in confidence to help you make a well-informed determination of your legal options. Good luck
