Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Any time a foreign object / surgical device is unintentionally left in the body of a patient, there are grounds to sue for medical malpractice/negligence. The value of the suit depends on how much damage -- physical and/or financial -- the foreign object has caused.
Also, you have a 2 year statute of limitations to sue. Thus, you should consider consulting an attorney in your area as soon as possible: https://www.floridabar.org/divcom/jn/jnjournal01.nsf/Author/F7BC2200718A2A2685256D550074A2C3
