I am so sorry to hear about your wife's condition. It is hard to say whether you have a malpractice claim here. The issue is she already had a bery bad back condition so it os very difficult to prove that there was deviation from the standard of care that made the condition worse. I would still suggest setting up an appointment with an experienced medical malpractice attorney. Be sure to have any medical records with you. They often have experts who can review the records and determine if any malpractice occurred.
