It is possible, but in order to know whether you have a case a doctor has to review the records and opine that that the doctor fell below the minimum competency of a doctor in the field and as a result your son suffered additional injuries that are permanent and serious that he would not have suffered had he been diagnosed properly in the first place. From what you indicated it sounds as though your son was born with certain medical problems. Whether the doctor is at fault in some why is unclear from your narrative. Why don't you see a medical malpractice attorney and find out if you have a case. Good luck.

Even we're a medical mistake identified, your son's complex congenital medical issues would still likely be unresolved. Yes, a brace might have already been placed. But scoliosis braces are usually something that lasts for years and years until they are teenagers when surgery can be performed on their back. But the complexity of your son's situation also makes it impossible to render a quick legal opinion in this forum. You should visit with a TN attorney and discuss all the details.
