    Injured my Achilles tendon while at work

    I ruptured my Achilles tendon while on the job. The doctor, however, misdiagnosed my injury and I did not have surgery until a month after the accident. Do I have a case against the attending doctor?

    I can be hard to prove negligence in cases of misdiagnosis. You have to prove that the doctor was negligent in your injury and in your case negligent in their misdiagnosis. You should talk to a lawyer to see if you indeed do have a case worth pursuing. Please read more about proving medical malpractice here.
