A: GEnerally, the warnings cover pretty much everything so hard to believe they didn't tell you. However if he clearly had no permission to give injections (and there was no catch-all "and to perform any and all procedures he may deem necessary during the procedure without consulting me..." then you would at least have a claim for battery. Suggest you contact a member of the Indiana Trial Lawyers Assn --they give free consults.
