Good day, my name is Brandon. Because the nuances of every situation are different, this information should not be relied upon as complete or advice without first consulting in person with counsel. That said, liability is definitely possible. Medical malpractice occurs when the caretaker fails to provide the patient with the ordinary standard of care. Looking at your wife's symptoms and the results, I certainly question whether the hospital acted appropriately, but it's not possible to reach a firm conclusion without examining her health records and having them reviewed by a physician. My recommendation is, as soon as possible, to schedule a free consultation with a local personal injury attorney who can see the records in person. If your wife suffered extra damage as a result of the hospital's malpractice, that could amount to some very serious money, and most personal injury attorneys would be glad to take the case on a contingency fee basis.
What have you done to try to find someone to take your case?
I am licensed and practicing in California, by the way.
What type of law did they practice?
What was their explanation for turning down your case?
That's not a great explanation, but what they're basically saying is that they believe you don't have a case. I'm not sure what they're seeing that I'm not because I'm not there to talk to you in person, but I would strongly recommend that you contact at least four more law offices that handle medical malpractice before giving up.
If you continue to be turned down, I recommend that you ask for a clear explanation of why there may be weakness in your case.
