When the wound is new and fresh, and that too caused by your doctor, you will be able to prove the wrongdoing. With time, the injuries will heal and you won’t be able to put the blame on your doctor because you will have no evidence. Also, you have to prove that the injuries you are talking about on account of which you filed a Foot Surgery Malpractice case were caused by the doctor. This way, the opponents cannot claim that you filed a frivolous lawsuit. You will have to be strong with your proof otherwise the judge will rule in the doctor’s favor.
If the doctor left a tool inside you, then it will be easy to prove. You will need an X-Ray report that shows the object the doctor left inside you to file your lawsuit. But then again, when a doctor does so, you cannot know that he left a foreign object inside you. It can only be done in the instances that either your foot still hurts or you had to get another X-Ray done because the wound doesn’t seem to be healing, or you had another fall after years and hurt your feet and you had to get the test done. If it’s a matter of years, chances are you might not be able to fine the doctor. You are probably too late in finding out and there is no point in filing a Foot Surgery Malpractice lawsuit then because the doctor is nowhere to be found. But if you know the doctor and he still works where you knew him to, you can file a lawsuit against him but you still need to have strong evidence it was him who did you wrong.
Malpractice lawsuits are not an easy thing. You have to go through a lot to prove that your doctor was negligent. You need strong evidence as well as backing because only then will you be able to win a case.
