Most likely, yes. Medical malpractice means that a doctor violated the standard of care. A bad outcome is not enough. Another doctor would be needed to evaluate what the doctors did. Consult with experienced medical malpractice attorneys.
My child’s father consented to her being papoose’d at the next appointment that I’d be taking her to at the dentist during her initial visit.
