A couple years ago my then 5yr old daughter fell off her bike and broke both arms in her forearm. I took her to the emergency room where they gave her xrays and set an appt up to have her arm set the following Mon (at the time it was Fri).
She was put under had it set, saw the orthopaedic doctor reg and was in a cast for 8 months. When the doc took the cast off it didnt look right at all! I addressed it with the ortho doc and he said it will take a yr to heal..Nope 2 yrs later she hurts and her arm is still the same. I took her for a 2nd opinion and now the new ortho doc and his PA said the original ortho doc didnt set it right. Would you sue the other doc, or make them pay for new medical expenses?
She now needs to see a doc 2 hours away in Boston to have it reset and pins..how would you mothers react if that were your child?
YES... I WOULD CONTACT AN ATTORNEY.
Im not a litigious person but you may have years and years of issues now. AND they should have NEVER sent you away for a whole weekend with two broken arms... Im livid for you.
I would a second, third, and forth opinion to see what to do now. And I would MOST DEFINATELY HIRE AN ATTORNEY.
