The nurse gave me a steroid injection to treat my allergies. I think she might have hit something, because my arm has been numb and weak. I went to see another doctor and he said that she might have hit a nerve connected to the tendons. He also said that the medicine the other doctor prescribed was old. Can I sue?

In a Virginia medical malpractice lawsuit, you have to show that the medical professional provided care that fell below the acceptable standard of care and that you suffered injuries as a result. It may be too early to tell what type of damages you have sustained.

If you feel that you might have a strong case, you should consult with a Virginia medical malpractice attorney. Keep in mind that you generally have two years to pursue a medical malpractice claim and recover compensation.
