You should speak to a lawyer ASAP. Call me at 732/773/2768 to discuss. You have to be very careful about what you do or say before you hire a lawyer which is why its important to call one right away.
I appreciate your inquiry and offer my wishes for a speedy recovery. As you have realized, you need the guidance of a lawyer who is familiar with such matters to help you with a potential claim. My firm and I regularly handle such cases and I would be happy to help you. There are several ways you may be compensated for your loss but keep in mind that you may have only a limited time to file an action, and even less time if you intend to file against a public entity. So you need to act soon.
