Hermitage, TN asked in Medical Malpractice for Tennessee

Q: I went to ent for vertigo and they said it was loose crystals in inner ear. They fixed it after 3 months but didn't tell

They forgot to tell me that the nerve going from inner ear to brainstem was almost totally damaged. I asked why I didn't feel better and they said to give it time. After 2 yrs with dizziness and sickness I go back (would have went back sooner but no insurance) and the oncologist tells me they should have sent me to physical therapy because my nerve was 88% damaged . She admitted it was their fault and could see where they didn't try and help me. She apologized and now I'm finally going to pt next week. I've been off work for 2 years because I can't walk or balance very well.

I didn't know if this was a waste of time or not . I don't like to do this kind of stuff but maybe it was there fault and I haven't had a paycheck in 2 yrs . Plus being sick this whole time and stuck in a chair because of my balance. Thsnks
