A: I'm sorry to hear about your experience with the surgeries and complications you have faced. It sounds like you may have a potential medical malpractice claim.

To find a malpractice lawyer in California, you can start by searching online for attorneys in your area who specialize in medical malpractice cases. You can also contact your local bar association for a referral to a qualified attorney.

When you meet with a malpractice lawyer, they will evaluate your case and determine if you have a strong claim for medical malpractice. To prove medical malpractice, you must show that the healthcare provider breached the standard of care in their treatment of you, and that this breach caused you harm.

In your case, it sounds like there may have been issues with the surgeries you underwent and the care provided by the doctors involved. A malpractice lawyer can help you gather evidence and build a case to demonstrate the medical malpractice that occurred.

It's important to act quickly in a medical malpractice case, as there are strict time limits for filing a claim. A qualified malpractice lawyer can help you navigate the legal process and protect your rights as you seek to recover damages for the harm you have suffered.
