Hi Pam: Last time i checked law suits are public records. You could contact the clerk in the county of where You live however the person filing a claim may have filed the complaint in another County or may have filed the complaint in Federal Court. It's according in same states where the incident happened ( Dr office or hospital ) or where the person who filed the complaint lives.
I would try first using Google and see if someone put the suit on the net, then try Your County Clerk and they should be able to give You all the information you require to secure a copy of the suit. There are companies that charge for this information but i would beware of them. Good luck tom
