place when he went home and went to another doctor they saw on the disc the tear from the doctor that place the stent. Would that be medical neglience or malpractice. He had emergency open heart surgery after several complications
A: It's possible it could be. You could arrange a consultation with a med mal attorney in California. Many offer free initial consults. If the law firm felt that there could be the basis for a case, they would request your medical history and surgery records and review them with a medical professional. These cases are typically handled on a contingency basis, meaning that the firm would only be paid attorney fees upon a favorable jury verdict or settlement. Good luck
