A malpractice attorney...
There are attorneys who specialize in medical malpractice. Your friend should document EVERYTHING and contact the law society to get a referral to an appropriate attorney. Don't go with some shyster on television ads.
I can imagine the fear she's going through! I hope she'll be alright!<br />
Look for an attorney that has also studied medicine. They're harder to find, but they're out there, and they WILL advertise that they've studied medicine.<br />
Ask for credentials.
I don't know the law, but I agree.
The emotional stress, should be a reason....but if she sues then settles and something comes up later, she most likely can't sue.
I'm really surprised they admitted their mistake....then again, maybe they knew you couldn't sue.
So....if they KNOW that, then why bother with proper procedure?
I hope you find someone that will help your friend!
I hope she nails them right between the eyes.
I'm sick of people slacking off on their jobs, especially when it can make someone sick, or worse, kill them.
She will only have a case if she actually contracted an illness. She should get tested and then look in her area for personal injury or medical malpractice attorneys. Most attorneys who work with personal injury will also handle med mal cases.<br />
You can usually look on the internet to find attorneys in your area with the specialty you are looking for.
