Q: My sister had a procedure that rendered her infertile.

The doctors did not properly explain that this was a possible side effect. Does this constitute malpractice even though the surgery went well otherwise?

Maybe. If the risk of infertility was not disclosed but under the prevailing standard of care a reasonable physician would have done so and if your sister would have declined the procedure had she been so warned the elements would be in oplacw for a successful med mal claim.

Q: if my oral surgeon extracted the wrong tooth, then falsified my medical records, do I have a case

The short answer is you likely have a claim although the value of the claim from a settlement/jury award perspective may not be significant. A closer review of the facts would reveal the extent of the damages and, hence, the potential value of your claim.

Q: Can I sue doctor and hospital? Doctor did not do surgery correctly.

I need to have surgery again because doctor did not do surgery correctly. I have difficulty walking due to severe pain and swelling in my foot and leg. I use a power chair for mobility most of the time.

Yes if there was substandard care provided. Consultation with an attorney will shed light on that question.

Q: Hello, my daughter was born with a cleft lip and gum line. Do we have cause to not pay out of pocket for her surgeries?

That depends on whether or not there was a breach of medical standards of care. Do you have reason to believe inappropriate care was given? If so consultation with a lawyer to review your claim would be the next step. www.trialhawk.com.
