It would be necessary to review medical records to be sure. But what do you think was done wrong? What preceded the original infection? Cases involving infection tend to be very difficult. A medical malpractice case involves unreasonable medical care which causes a significant injury that would not have occurred otherwise.Ask a similar question
Proving medical negligence is not easy. Your records would need to be reviewed by a medical specialist who would need to conclude that the standard of care was violated and that this violation caused you injury. If your care was provided by an emergency doctor, the proof of negligence is higher than other areas of medicine. You would need to prove the negligence by a "clear and convincing" standard.Ask a similar question
I agree with the other attorneys. Keep in mind that there are sometimes unfortunate risks associated with surgery and recovery. Good luck.
I am an Arizona attorney. AVVO does not pay us for our responses. Simply because I responded to your question does not mean I am your attorney. In Arizona a non-lawyer is held to the same standards as an attorney so there are dangers to representing yourself. This is for informational purposes only and should not be considered as legal advice. If you require legal assistance an in depth discussion of your case is needed as there are many other issues to consider such as defenses, statute of limitations, etc.Ask a similar question
