I had a double mastecomy and expanders put in at the same time. The expander ruptured and caused infection and further problems. I have since has 3 more surgeries to the same area, all stemming from initial problem. The original doctor is not insured and did not have a pathology or operative made til well later after. A law firm I spoke with said it is not feasible to file because the cap of money is low. I need help! I need another surgery this September, this is crazy!
Medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional's negligence causes injury to a patient. Incorrect actions and inaction can both be forms of negligence.
Surgical malpractice occurs when a medical professional makes an error during surgery that was both preventable and beyond the normal risks.
