    Answered . He needs to go to the hospital or a doctor immediately if he is in that much pain. He should consul twith a lawyer in your area who specializes in medical malpractice and defective products to see if he can bring a claim for damages. Be aware that there are strict guidelines to how long you have to make a claim so I would seek legal help asap. Good luck!!

    Answered . Find a lawyer quickly so you don't blow the statute of limitations. Find a lawyer with a low contingency fee, less than 30% with no costs deducted, so you get the lion’s share of the settlement, not your lawyer.

    Only 29% Contingency Fee! Phone: 215-510-6755 www.InjuryLawyerPhiladelphia.com
