Understand that if they have wronged you in Saudi Arabia, then the jurisdiction to sue the hospital stays in Saudi Arabia, even if you are a US Citizen (there is an exception, see below). As such, you would need a Saudi attorney. As such, it is strongly recommended
that you go off the list that the US Consulate provides for attorneys who speak English and have been vetted as qualified in Saudi Arabia - see here
. A Saudi judgment may be domesticated and enforced in the USA as well.
If you feel that you could not get a fair trial in Saudi Arabia, then you can possibly then file in the USA. May I recommend the CA Bar referral program - here
. The attorneys are vetted and qualified. You should be able to find an attorney you are confident with and whom you can trust, and who is available ASAP.
You should pick an attorney who has experience dealing with international companies and cross-national legal matters.
Best of luck.
