Can I sue a hospital and claim compensation?

Answered

I went to the hospital because I was short of breath, the next thing I remember was waking up 10 days later in ICU and the specialist told me they thought I had pneumonia and what they treat that with stopped my heart for 17 minutes for which I received a hypoxic brain injury as well as liver failure and kidney failure. I remember him saying “we did this to you it was our fault”.

    Hospitals and Doctors can be liable for medical malpractice if they fail to follow correct procedure or omit to do something they reasonably should have done.  It is most important that you seek legal advice on this matter as you may well have a claim and there are time limits within which a claim can be brought.
