The case of medical malpractice is about the negligence which includes damages. Most of these cases are enormously expenses to prosecute. It seems from your description of your possible case that you have made a decent recovery. In my opinion, this would not be a case we would take on. Please don't be discouraged. Perhaps you will find another attorney in your area with a different view. Much depends on how you end up after the ordeal you went through.

Problem is you would have to prove that was what caused the item and that it was from your tooth and not a piece of bone from something you ate. Size seems big for a tooth fragment.Follow up with a dentist to make sure what you pulled out wasn't a problem

First you would have to show that it was the medicine and nothing else that caused receeding gums, which can come from a number of factors. This is extremely difficult to prove. Either way you need to see an endodontist, so why not let them tell you what they think caused it.

You need to find an attorney that handles those issues. Suggest you contact the Minnesota Civil Liberties union, ask for their "cooperating attorneys" on prison medical conditions. 8th amendmendment? I do not think so.

Although perforation of the colon is a known risk of the colonoscopy if there is not an informed consent you may have a claim.

I recommend having a qualified medical malpractice attorney review your medical records to see if you have a case.

Good luck.

Answered on Jan 8, 2013
Mr. Kenneth Lee LaBore Esq.'s answer
The Defense attorneys get the records usually from a signed authorization which you provide (after an attorney reviews and edits). Sometimes the defense is given records from the facility at issue. For example if you are hurt in the nursing home the attorney for the nursing home may have the medical records to review before you provide an authorization.

I recommend that you consult with a qualified Minnesota malpractice attorney for a consultation on this issue.
