suffering a miscariage I was left neglected in a room in a pool of my own blood unattended after passing out twice at home and being transported to the hospital by ambulance after a few hours I had an emergency D&C to stop the bleeding would the time I was left alone be considered malpractice and how would I pursue it
State/Country relating to Question: New York
Good evening. I am so sorry this happened. What year did this happen?
The claim then is timely. You normally would pursue this using a malpractice lawyer who would file a civil lawsuit, engage in settlement talks and pursue discovery pending trial if there is no settlement forthcoming. For your reference, martindale.com is a good resource.
