Byron, GA asked in Medical Malpractice for Georgia

Q: My husband had major back surgery over 2 years ago, and his condition is much worse that prior health.

We had obamacare at the time of surgery, was then dropped, shortly after the surgery so he cannot goto doctor. The dr. Who did surgery was aware of this, and "super billed" the insurance company? Only three months aftercare was performed because of this insurance issue. He is disabled now and I want to know if we should consider sueing this dr.? He literally talked us into the surgery to begin with! And I am at my witts end. I believe that he has screwed up many people in the area, too?

A: I do not practice in Georgia, but your question remains open for 4 weeks. Consult with a Georgia med mal attorney who could review the medical history and full surgical and post-op timeline in greater detail. I believe the statute of limitations in Georgia for med mal is two years from the negligent act or omission - but that is something you should discuss with a Georgia attorney.
