A: Medical malpractice cases are quite complex. I recommend that you get your daughter assessed by an orthopedic specialists. If there are issues related to growth and maturity, you may see if an evaluation by and endocrinologist is in order. For an attorney to take on a medical malpractice cases, the attorney will typically look for situations in which the injuries or conditions are permanent in nature.
