A. ) Medical negligence thrust tortious liability and the victim can receive compensation for the injury or loss suffered by him. The liability can be civil as well as criminal.

A) For civil malpractice/negligence where you are seeking damages in monetary terms, you can approach consumer forum under the District Consumer Disputes Redressal Forum/National Commission which should ideally provide a judgement in under 3 months and which is more likely to yield results as opposed to going the IPC and criminal case way. Only monetary damages may be claimed under the Consumer Protection Act, and no criminal liability will fall on the doctor. You can argue for yourself but having a lawyer arguing for you may provide you a better chance of winning the case.

B) Criminal negligence can be complained to the state medical council but they do not handle monetary compensation for you but if the state medical council finds merit in your accusation they may proceed for action proceedings against the doctor. You can also approach the court for a criminal case if you believe that the doctor has killed or grievously hurt a patient out of malicious intent.

The Supreme Court has a very strict threshold for the criminal liability in cases of medical negligence. Martin F D’Souza v. Mohd. Ishfaq [2009 2 SCC 40]

A. ) First file a police complaint and also make a complaint to the medical council of your state.If the police refuse to register FIR for any reason, then make a private complaint with the Magistrate under section 200 of Criminal Procedure code.Also we can approach consumer forum for getting monetary compensation.

A. ) File a private criminal complaint u/s 200 CrPC for negligence and endangering human life, instead of filling complaint in police station.Court can direct registration of FIR on ur complaint in its discretion.Also file consumer complaint for deficiency is service. These matters are very technical in nature.
You can approach me for preparation of complaints through Vidhikarya.

A. ) You hire a local lawyer where you reside and then file a consumer case against the doctors and the hospital. Also don't forget to ask for compensation apart from the expenses.
