Need to find a lawyer
Hi, our then 5 year old son went in for oral surgery last October and ended up in ICU. He is fine now but after everything was done we found out that there was neglect from the dentist and wrong doing from the anesthesiologist whom never sent us an amount ''do'' (I cant use my name as the word, because it will take it out) What are our rights as far as legally?

Re: Need to find a lawyer
You have no legal rights or cause of action until and unless a competent doctor reviews the entire medical records and writes and affidavit that he has looked at the records and that in his or her opinion there was in fact a failure to follow the standard of care for the type of procedure in the community in which the doctor practices.
Short of that you do not have a cause of action.
Further, you will have a hard time finding an attorney to take your case on because medical malpractice case is expensive and thankfully your son has recovered and is fine now.
I hope this helps,
