Only wanting to know... I’ve been to 2 attorneys and the case is clear and I have all evidence. They say I can’t sue because I was active and he was retired. However- clear malpractice on many levels- I have all proof- no patient consent- I woke up and remained awake during surgery- paralyzed- ptsd- did wrong surgery- amputation- ER denied care because dr went on vacation that nite and didn’t enter my records in database- dr erased my vitals (The RN that printed me out his notes was fired!): the doc was fired after I filed a complaint and it progressed all the way to wash DC- Doc broke instrument in my foot also, caused gaut, crippled both feet- bi lateral neurological issues. I can barely walk.... he lied in my records, I got 10 percent for my feet zero for amputation. I have had doctor after doctor PROVE as well as X-rays and photos showing missing toe.... I can’t get anyone to help me sue!!! I got NO retirement at 17.5 years and nobody will help me sue... it’s been been over two years- been 3. I can’t help it. Severe ptsd. I thought he and the nurses were organ cropping me. I watched it.... what can I do???

Wait...what is it you want to do? You want to sue who? The military ? A particular individual?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
