Q: During labor they put too much epidural and it went to my brain and started shutting down my organs. Is this a lawsuit?
I was rushed under anesthesia as they worked on me. I received the paperwork on this incident. Is this considered malpractice?
A: I'm sorry for your ordeal. A Massachusetts attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. But an attorney in ANY state could not really give you a meaningful answer based on these brief facts - the situation you describe calls for a medical opinion as to the standard of care applied and whether there was a breach of medical duty, and further if that breach resulted in significant damages. This is something that calls for a medical expert's opinion. You could reach out to med mal firms in your area to discuss. If they felt you might have the basis for a case, they could retrieve your records and review them with a medical professional. Good luck
