A: A Michigan attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. But any attorney who answers your question would probably need to consult with a medical professional. They would want to learn more about the procedure and the full scope of damage (drill bits or other components left inside, insertion of screws, etc. - they would likely want to see diagnostic imaging studies). One option would be to reach out to med mal law firms in your state to discuss in detail. Firms that handle such cases generally offer free initial consults. Good luck
