My question involves medical malpractice in the state of: Nevada
My doctor operated on the wrong foot - for plantar fascitis. No one in the hospital marked either foot, nor did the doctor. All the paperwork reflected the left foot being operated on and he operated on the right foot. Although both feet had bone spurs, I had not had any pain in the right foot, only the left. He ended up having to do both feet since I could not walk on the injured foot to begin with and I was in a wheel chair for 3 weeks. He damaged the nerve on the right foot (the wrong foot) and I now have tarsal tunnel syndrome and 1/3 of my foot is numb with random shooting nerve pain that has not changed in a year.
Since Nevada's laws are so strict I was wondering what my chances were with the insurance company not wanting a jury trial. I have a very good attorney but he said that most insurance companies ask for one and that juries tend to side with the doctor. Thank you.
