Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Personal Injury litigation attorney here to assist you.
If you can prove that the hospital and staff didn't provide you adequate treatment and fell below the standard of care, yes, you have grounds to sue.
You only have 2 years from the treatment to sue for malpractice, so you should consider seeing a medical malpractice attorney in your area as soon as possible.
Also, Pennsylvania law requires expert testimony on your behalf that the treating facility and/or staff fell below the appropriate standard of care. Your attorney will assist you in finding the appropriate expert (usually a doctor) to help with your case.
