I need a Medical malpractice lawyer. Doctor left wire in my foot after a foot surgery in Aug.2012. can you help me?

Asked over 1 year ago - Greensboro, NC

The kay wire left in my foot was stabbing me every time I took a step. Urgent care doc says that he has never seen this type of wire left in a patient. I had it removed by original foot doc and have suffered from nerve damage and still have no feeling in three of my toes and part of my foot. This doctor just returned from retirement and is extremely old. He wrote three prescriptions that could not be filled because they were incomplete. I feel I will suffer from nerve damage for the rest of my life. My foot is warped when I stand on it. the way it was cut does not allow me to stand on it flat. I'm suffering from depression from lack of activity,weight gain,lack of sleep and constant pain. Can any lawyer in Greensboro NC represent me and my permanent damage.
