Medical Malpractice

I'm sorry - but I believe I may have been misunderstood. I am wondering how you find competent medical help with a medical malpractice situation. I do believe this doctor was ''negligent,'' but regardless of that, my only concern is that I get accurate, honest information about my injury. I am not convinced that my injury is ''permanent'' because the most I have heard from my treating doctors is that they don't want to get involved or that I have symptoms of thyroid disease, or that my injuries are ''insignificant,'' etc. I have a damaged inferior oblique eye muscle and wear sunglasses with the peripheral vision blocked to be able to work and function daily. I see double images (diplopia) any time I move my eyes, am on pain meds daily for headaches and dizziness, can only read or stitch with one eye covered and for very short periods and don't drive at all at night. I could go on and on. My injury is not ''insignificant'' but these doctors are friends with the initial doctor which is very disconcerting. They state he is a good doctor repeatedly in my presence. I need adequate medical care and it seems impossible because everyone wants to cover it up. I just need to find a doctor to help me. How can I find an unbiased doctor? Please.
