I agree with Girly Q. Unless you can prove the doctor or hospital was negligent then you have no case and a lawyer will not touch you, or at least that how it works in Texas. My Mom had a procedure done 2 years ago. She complained of her neck and head hurting. She told her local doctor and ultimately went to emergency room a few weeks later, she went into a coma and had a stroke while in coma. She had bacteria meningitis. They did not treat the stroke until 3 weeks later when she came out of coma, then it was too late. She has no short term memory, she doesn't know me and my sisters all the time. Her symptoms mimic Alzheimer's. She can not live alone anymore. We went to a lawyer in Austin and he wouldn't take the case because we could not prove the doctor who did procedure was negligent. All doctors agree the procedure caused the meningitis and all doctors agree in turn caused stroke. We can not prove the doctor who did procedure was negligent. I call bullshit. My Mom now lives with my older sister, she just exists.

2 years, but good luck trying to get an attorney to take your case, short of death or permenantly disabled, like severely disabled, I had a brain annurism due to a doctors ignorance and couldn't get anyone to take my case
