    Todd, a doctor is required to be held to what is called a reasonable standard of care. What this means is that the surgeon is required to act in a way that is consistent with what another surgeon would have done in the situation. It is partially subjective because it is not always easy to know exactly what another doctor would have done in the situation.

    Medical malpractice claims essentially result when a doctor fails to provide a minimum reasonable standard of care. Typically, there would need to be damages for an attorney to take this kind of case. If you are wondering whether you have a case, you can certainly contact a medical malpractice attorney and they'll be able to tell you fairly quickly whether you've got an actionable case. They may not be able to answer the question of whether your doctor is certainly liable, but they can help you to determine if that is the case fairly quickly.
