For a cause of action occurred in Delhi you may have to file a case in Delhi jurisdiction only, though you can engage the services of a lawyer from outside Delhi too.
In my view the remedies before you is to approach consumer forum for medical negligence and unfair trade practice
Thus, there are 3 components of medical negligence:
- Existence of legal duty
- Breach of legal duty
- Damage caused by such breach
There are various kinds of situations which amount to medical negligence by a medical professional such as incorrect diagnosis, deferred diagnosis, inaccurate surgery, long term negligent treatment, childbirth and labor malpractice, needless surgery and erroneous administration of anesthesia etc.
The Hon’ble Supreme Court in Dr. Laxman Balkrishna Joshi Vs. Dr. Trimbak Bapu Godbole had observed that every doctor must exercise reasonable “standard of care” that are set out in the profession. Any breach towards these duties shall hold him liable for medical negligence.
A medical professional or hospital shall be held liable for all actions against the patients where they have not taken proper standard of care and it has resulted in suffering on part of the patient. The burden of proof shall lie on the complainant to prove a case of negligence. They have to first establish that there was a duty of care on part of the accused and that, there was breach of such duty.
The State Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission of Jharkhand in Jagdish Prasad Singh v. Dr. A.K.Chatterjee directed the opposite party to pay a sum of Rs. 25,000 to the complainant as compensation for his mental agony and physical harassment and Rs. 5,000 as litigation cost. It was observed that the accused had failed to take due care to return the precise findings in the reports. Whether harm came to the patient or not would not be the criteria for case against negligence.
Thus you have relief before the consumer forum and not by filing a PIL.
You may discuss with a local advocate and proceed as suggested.
