You need to make an appointment with a personal injury attorney in your area who handles medical malpractice cases. You need to bring copies of all of your medical records. The attorney will send the records to a medical expert who will determine whether what your doctor did fell below the standard of care and whether it caused you do suffer the seizures. For medical malpractice, you need both negligence and causation. If the expert determines that you have a good case, the attorney will take it on a contingency fee basis, meaning the attorney does not get paid until he settles or wins your case.
