If you slip and fall, develop an infection, or suffer a medical mistake such as having the wrong limb removed during your hospital stay, you may wonder if you have the right to sue for negligence.

How Do I Know If I Have a Claim?
The following is a just a glimpse of the many situations that can cause a medical malpractice case.
- If you have significant damages after a surgical mistake such as a missing limb or disfigurement;
- Your doctor or nurse ignored your complaints or questions, leading you to be harmed; or
- Your doctor failed to provide follow-up treatment after surgery, which caused irreversible infection or injury.
If any of the above situations sound similar to what happened to you, you probably have good cause to sue.
