Grounds for medical malpractice?

my son was bit by a dog when he was 6. the dog bite ripped his tear duct, resulting in surgery and insertion of tubing through his tear duct and through to his sinus. he had an aditional surgery some time after to remove the tubing. however after a few years of being told he had allergies, and a reffereal to an ENT doc it was discovered that the tubing in his sinus was not removed. hes had problems ranging from congestion to stuffy nose and sleep apnea.

It certainly sounds like a case. If they didn't remove the tubing in that surgery, just what did they do? The real question is what are your son's damages. Does he need another surgery to have these tubes removed now?

It sounds like there is a strong possibility that you could have a case. Medical Malpractice cases can be extremely tricky and expensive. There are also issues related to timelines where you must file by. It is extremely important that if you are contemplating a lawsuit, you speak with an attorney at once.

Medical practice lawsuits are expensive and usually require an injury which would yield more money than the costs, however, whenever anyone feels that there may have been malpractice, search Avvo immediately for med mal lawyers in your city, and call for a free consultation to protect your rights.
