If you think you have a medical malpractice case, you should research attorneys who do medical malpractice.
You really ought to talk to your attorney about these things!
In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but insted need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice. If you want to be completely sure of your rights, you must sit down with an experienced attorney to be fully aware of your rights. Finally, please forgive any typographical errors in my note!
You have had horrific experiences, for sure. What's needed to ultimately guide a jury and, thus, anyone hoping to press and settle a claim short of a jury trial, are expert medical evaluation and opinion. That usually comes with an host of problems and surprises.
I suggest as a natural place to start, with or without a medical malpractice lawyer, is to inquire of any treating physician whose conduct is not at issue as to whether the standard of medical care was breached and, if so, by whom. It may be that you caught MRSA other than through the surgeon. I understand that it is usually contracted in a non-surgical hospital setting.
Your employer is liable for the reasonably foreseeable negligence of medical professionals addressing your medical needs except that workers compensation claims pay only about 2/3 of your lost earnings and none of your noneconomic damages but it is "no fault". The insurance and medical cartels imposed M.I.C.R.A. on us thus limiting your general damages to $250,000 which may or may not be adequate for you and you collect nothing and can pay enormous litigation expenses if you lose in a medical malpractice trial.
So, this is not a simple endeavor nor are your losses simple.
Your records can certainly be reviewed by a local malpractice lawyer who can investigate.
