White Hall, AR asked in Medical Malpractice for Arkansas

Q: Do I have a case?

I had foot surgery. I had a tailors bunion removed, a hammertoe fixed and two neuromas removed during the first surgery. When fixing the hammertoe/tailors bunion, the surgeon placed a permanent pin in my foot, that went through and punctured a neuroma that he missed, a third neuroma. Because of this, I had to go into surgery again because the damage the pin caused to the neuroma that was missed, made the neuroma pancake inside my foot causing serious nerve damage and pain that would result in having a second surgery to remove the damaged and seriously large neuroma. During the second surgery he also fixed three more hammertoes. I don't have feeling in 4/5 of my toes. I cannot do the job that I had at the time and am having to resort to trying to find work online. I was unable to walk from October-April. I am just now able to walk but it's difficult to get around and I still cannot work the job I had, and have been "self employed" since. Not doing well at being self employed I might add
