Thank you all for your advice. The main thing we need to know is what type of attorney do we hire? I'm not sure what area of law this falls under. Is it a civil matter now?
[/QUOTE]One more thing, you wrote that your "ex filed a suit against the hospital." Did your name appear on the lawsuit as a Plaintiff? Check the court file before you answer. It's a critical bit of information.[/QUOTE]
Yes my name was on the lawsuit. It also stated the pay out was supposed to be to both me (listed my full name) and my ex (listed her full name).
The settlement was $150,000.
