    Sorry this happened to you. The answer to your question is "Maybe. " The only way to know for sure is to consult with an experienced medical malpractice attorney who may obtain the medical records and imaging studies for review by the appropriate medical professionals. It will have to be determined whether the surgeon fell below standard, and if so, whether that departure caused some significant injury. Best wishes.

  • Malpractice lawyer???

    One hospital diagnosed her with a bruised tail bone, at another hospital diagnosed her with a broken back at T11

    Kenneth’s Answer

    Although the T11 fractured may have been misdiagnosed, unless the misdiagnosis has caused or resulted in some kind of additional significant damage beyond the original fracture, then there really is no viable cause of action. It's not enough that there was a miss; there has to be more injury as a result of the miss. The only way to truly know would be by consultation with an experienced medical malpractice attorney who may obtain the imaging studies and medical records for review by the appropriate medical specialists. Best wishes.

    Kenneth’s Answer

    I'm sorry you are going through this experience. There are many questions that will need to be answered. Much will depend on the nature of your baby's infection. For your family's sake, I hope it is not Group B Strep or a herpes, which can be difficult to treat after the infection has occurred. When the immediate crisis subsides I urge you to contact a medical malpractice attorney experienced with birth injuries. The records can then be obtained for review by the appropriate medical specialists. Best wishes for a complete recovery.
