  1. Perhaps I do not fully understand what you are looking for. You may have a med mal claim, but without more information as to your injuries it is difficult to tell. Have you followed up with care?

  2. Consult another surgeon to see if this is something that will improve with time or whether additional care is needed. Probably too early to know if there is permanent injury.

  3. You can't expect the emergency room to be a pleasant experience, especially when you are bleeding out. You apparently had a bad injury and it will take some time to heal. You should be following up with a hand surgeon. It's too soon to be thinking about a malpractice claim. Give it at least a couple of months with treatment to see how you recover.
