If you do your research, you will find that the statute of limitations has LONG since passed on this. If you were going to do anything, then at age 18, when you started having issues, would have been a good time to look into it. But another 9 years later? Sorry, way too long ago.

for doctors nurses and other medical related people and admin in hospital the injury of death of a person is a normal and routine wise work but for the person who is facing this problem is very stressful movement for through out the life so doctors should care all of the patent
