My grandfather had an accident with a table saw. It cut into his right index and thumb. At the emergency room the specialist said that there was only one piece of bone that had been fractured. The bone was removed. When my grandpa went to an orthopedic surgeon a few days later it turned out the entire bone of the tip of his finger was splintered, and the bone that had been removed was a crucial bone in the finger that held the digit to the knuckle and was supposed to be kept and replaced back in the finger with a pin. This doctor said that any specialist would know not to remove the bone and throw it away. Now, because of this my grandfather's finger will either grow back crooked, or they will have to bring the two bones together and he will never be able to bend it again. He is no longer able to work as a painter because of this. Could one sue the doctor who removed the bone?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
