Q: Why can a female sue a dr but I cant

I just saw on the news where a lady sued a dr for misreading her mammogram but I had a surgeon put my hip in retroverted and I had 20 plus dislocations and I cant sue no one. Why is that.

A: A Virginia attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. The answer to your question could be a lengthy one, but the concise answer based on the brief description provided is that no two individuals and the set of circumstances and legal theories surrounding their cases are usually identical. You describe what appears to be a serious condition, and the short answer to your situation would depend on whether your injury/condition arose out of a failure to exercise a proper level of medical care. The only way to determine that would be for an attorney to discuss your matter with you in greater detail. If they felt you might have the basis for a case, they could retrieve your patient file and review it with a medical professional. You could reach out to Virginia attorneys to discuss your matter. Most attorneys who handle such cases offer free initial consults. Good luck
