Do I have 2 cases or 1?

Recommended Posts

On Nov. 4 I was the passenger in a single car accident, the driver lost control of his mercedes and hit the concrete barrier on the freeway off ramp. The airbags deployed and we were taken to the hospital via ambulance where they rushed us to the waiting room. After waiting 2 hours I realized that no one had checked me in. So I checked myself in. then after another 3 hours I was admitted.

In The Emergency Room, I had nausea and started bleeding,(pregnant) they gave me 3 xrays w/no protection over my abdomen and said your ok take some vicoden and lay down.

Less than one week later I hemorraged and went to another er, where they confirmed a miscarriage. Had to do a D/C.

So here is my question, the car accident Ihave covered, it sprained my back in 5 places, miscarriage and I lost my job. But Do I have a case against the ER, they did no care for my bleeding and being pregnant, sent a pregnant woman home with vicoden, performed xrays with no lead coverage over the abdomen to guard against the radiation to the fetus. They did not do any MRI's to see if I had a concussion, I was throwing up in the waiting room they didn't even check. What do you think? I am very angry at this hospital, I tried to file a BBB complaint against them but the BBB said they don't handle criminally negl. cases?

jodyelsa, it's possible that you have a case for medical malpractice. But, medical malpractice cases are very fact intensive, so it is pretty much impossible to guess if a case exists without first doing some research into the facts of your case. For example, going over medical records and hospital records.

Consult with a local personal injury attorney. Almost all personal injury attorneys offer free consultations and most also take cases on contingency. That is, you do not pay any fees up front, instead paying fees as a percentage of any settlement you receive. Although every attorney handles these matters differently, many attorneys will do some initial research into a medical malpractice case at no charge just to see if there is a case. Speaking with an attorney is the absolute best way to see if you have a case.

You can find a local personal injury attorney using this resource:

FindLaw Lawyer Directory - https://lawyers.findlaw.com/

This resource will allow you to browse attorneys by location or practice area, and even sort by which offices offer free consultations. As with any legal matter, it is smart to consult with several attorneys before you decide who will represent you.
