    Answered . A local lawyer would need to order your medical records and send them to an expert to review. Use Avvo's "find a lawyer" tool. I'm sorry, but my firm only handles catastrophic injuries.

    Answered . Medical Malpractice-Products Liability -Bowel Perforation-Fistula- By Patrick Amoresano: You've described a very compelling case with components of medical malpractice as well as possible products liability, as certain Da Vinci Robot models have an FDA documented history of defects. You need to speak with an experienced and knowledgable trial attorney right away.

    Answered . Medical malpractice cases are very complicated. Get copies of all of your medical records and bring them to a local personal injury attorney who handles medical malpractice cases. You will need a medical expert to review the medical records and confirm the malpractice. Good luck.

    Answered . You need to intact an attorney who is experienced in both medical malpractice and medical products liability. I am handling a number of these cases all over the country, and there is almost certainly a case against Intuitive, the DaVinci manufacturer. There is a defect in a certain instrument on the DaVinci that is causing theses injuries. And depending on your post surgical contacts with the urge on, you may have a case for failure to timely diagnose as well as a possible case for causing the injury. You also want to review the hospital records with an eye to whether or not you actually met discharge criteria. There is a lot going on here. Feel free to call to discuss.
