I had an ACL surgery two months ago, my knee looks great with some minor scars. But the surgeon somehow burned my skin during the surgery at my lower leg. When asked the surgeon he could not give any explanation. I'm seeing a plastic surgeon now that is treating the burn. After four weeks of treating the burn the plastic surgen decided to do a skin graft on my leg. The burn is now healing fine but the scar on the donor site and the recipient site are not what i expected they look really visiable. The burn is approx. 6"X 1" in size, i alreadly spent closely to $2,000 on medical fees and medications. The surgeon that performed the surgery on my knee has not offered to help with these expenses. Is there anything legally that i can do?
