I have had 7 operations on a minor knee injury in 1996. I have had 17 complications resulting from them, a few life threating with longer stays in the hospital & more cost than the knee surgery. Have had 2 different Doctors on the knee & about 15 others, including a "Infectious Diseases Consultant" My knee & my general health is worse than ever due to the problems. I now have nerve damage & blood clots in my leg, have had major throat lazer surgery, now I'm told I have "RSD" REFLEX SYMPATHETIC DYSTROPHY, a nerve disease for which there is no cure. I need a Lawyer but none in my area will take my case. They say they know the Doctors or will not sue the local Hospitals.. Can I use a Lawyer from another city or state???
