Hi [USERNAME], my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do the best to help you. My advice is general only and does not create an attorney-client relationship. Wow. That is a lot of information. I am so sorry to hear all that you have been going through over the last 7 years. It is tragic. I am also to hear that your first lawyer wasted your time by basically doing nothing. What I would suggest is that you have your case reviewed immediately by a competent personal injury attorney in your area. Someone who has good medical contacts who can help go through your medical records as well. While you may have a case, it is difficult to completely sort out until all the facts (medical records, etc.) have been thoroughly reviewed.
Unfortunately we are not permitted to give you a direct referral. However, I can point you to the Michigan Bar Association's referral service. If you explain what you need, they should be able to point you to a local attorney who can help you. I suggest you call them ASAP. The referral service is located at http://www.michbar.org/programs/lawyerreferral.cfm.
I wish you the best and please keep me informed as to how things are going with you. Bless you and thank you for your positive rating.
