1 Answer from Attorneys
In order to have a case for medical malpractice, you must prove that the actions of this doctor breached the standard of care. In order to determine whether or not this was in fact the case, you would have to have your case reviewed by another orthopedist. While finding one on your own to look at this is difficult, malpractice lawyers have the means to obtain your file and have it reviewed to determine whether or not you have a case. Therefore, you should contact a malpractice attorney in your area to meet with and discuss all of the details.
