Hello! My name is***** you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
I am terribly sorry to hear that this happened to you. You are very lucky to have such a brilliant daughter.
It is good that you don't want t sue as it is too late to do that as you had to sue within two years of this happening.
But it is not clear that you would have won a lawsuit because it seems that all of the parties you mention were essentially in agreement and if that is the case there is no judge or even regulatory body that would fault anyone. Things are not always perfect and someone is liable not when they make a mistake but only if they are negligent or the care they provide is below standards. So if a diagnosis is difficult to make then no one would be said to have been at fault.
At the same time you just want to be sure that this does not happen again and so I suggest one approach is to contact the media, explain what happened and that you are now strong enough to speak out and want to do so to save lives just as your daughter saved yours.
Does that help as a starting point?
Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
First I am just a lawyer and not a doctor. Second what I said is that if there are doctors at a hospital and a family doctor and a pharmacist who all miss this it will not be likely that you can prove negligence and in fact I don't believe you will. I am not a doctor but I am a senior lawyer and have been a lawyer since 1985. I am giving you a realistic and honest answer and not the one you want to hear.As well, it is not possible to sue as the limitation period for suing is 2 years and you missed it.
So what you are saying, while I understand it is out of anger is not rational and you should reread this answer and my other when you are calmer. You cannot sue and if you did the chances of winning are not at all good.But you were harmed and you want others to know and I suggested how you can do that.
There is no need to be rude and hostile to me. I did not cause the situation and I am trying to help on a Sunday.
