I'm really sorry to hear about your situation. This to me sounds like a classic case of negligence. Negligence simply means that there was a duty that the other party owed and they breached that duty in some way. What is most important is that it is proven that the defendant breached their duty of care because that is what mostly determines whether there is a cause of action. Basically, the question is, “Did the defendant’s actions fall below the standard of care for a reasonable person in a similar situation?” If the answer to that question is yes, then there is negligence.
In this case, because of the extent of your nature, it is likely that the doctor breached their duty of care by not maybe doing more extensive examinations or doing the necessary research that would be required, such as getting a second opinion, to determine with the extent of your deformities or injuries would be.
One of the things that you may want to be able to do is try to find out who their malpractice insurance carrier is. They're malpractice insurance carrier will ordinarily cover things like this because claim such as these are so frequent. Usually, they may cover things like the cost of any surgeries that you had or perhaps any missed work. It really just depends on what it is that you asked for and how much you're asking for.
