Customer Question
Looking to see if...

Looking to see if I need a civil attorney. while an inpatient in a hospital, the hospital failed to protect me against a nurse who tried to take my life. I believe this was not his first attempt with patients & the hospital used me to apprehend him. Can you plz lead me in the right direction

Lawyer's Assistant: In what state did the injury take place? And do you have medical records or other documentation?

In Weirton Medical Center, Weirton WVA & yes I have copies of my medical records

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed? If so, what?

I filed a statement with. Quest Relations at the hospital. I called Weirton Police & last week I have statement to Wellsburg State Police to do an investigation

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Except that I am in fear bc I don't know where this nurse is & I don't know what I should be doing. All lawyers state this is not medical malpractice
