Can I sue a hospital for medical negligence?
Q: I had the misfortune of losing a loved one sometime in the middle of last year. I would like to know that if I wish to claim death due to negligence on the part of a hospital, is it too late to make a case out of it now? Also, is a post mortem always indispensable as an evidence in medico-legal cases?
A:No; it is certainly not too late. No; post-mortem is not at all mandatory. If you send us full details of what went wrong, why you think it was the fault of the doctor or prescriber's treatment, we may be able to give you further advice. Your best bet will be to go to Consumer Forum.
