It would probably not be a viable case.
The first issue is did the doctor commit malpractice. Medical malpractice means that a doctor violated the standard of care. A bad outcome is not enough. Another doctor would be needed to evaluate what the doctors did.
The second issue is what would the harm cause you bring in settlement or verdict. Due to the nature of medical malpractice cases, the extent of your injuries may affect the viability of your case.
Consult with experienced malpractice attorneys in the state where this occurred.
A: It does not sound like it would be a strong case. Because of the costs involved in litigating med mal cases, law firms are generally reluctant to contemplate something where the potential for recovery is not strong. I'm sorry for your ordeal. It's possible other attorneys could see things differently. The best way to definitively answer your question would be to reach out to attorneys to try to arrange a free initial consult. Good luck
