I developed a blood clot after surgery due to the staff not turning on the air sleeves on my legs, can I move foreword with letigation?

Was there any permanent damage incurred from the clot? If so yes. If not you can try but you would be wasting your time and money

This is my third occurrence of clots but the first time in my left leg. The doctor on call said since it was my third time I will be taking Coumadin the rest of my life. I currently cannot walk, sit or lay down without constant pain.

You will lose the strength in your legs.
I had those air things on and still got the clot,so be careful getting down.

This is the third time I've had clots and the hospital knew my history. The air sleeves were never turned on until two days after my surgery.
