A: You very well may have a case if the facts are as you describe. You may also be able to work out a contingency fee with an attorney to represent you so that you don’t pay anything to bring the suit unless you win or get a settlement in your favor. It probably bears speaking to an attorney about that possibility and your other options.

A: Sorry to hear of your issues. Yes, you can. It's more of a "medical malpractice" case than a personal injury case.

I hope it works out for you and you recover fully.
