The main difficulties in suing a surgeon on your own

Filing a surgeon lawsuit on your own can be a daunting task because it requires a thorough understanding of the medical and legal aspects. Some of the main difficulties include:

  1. Medical examination. Understanding the medical aspects of the case and the ability to prove the insufficient level of the surgeon's professional activity.
  2. Gathering evidence. The importance of properly collecting medical records, testimony, and other evidence to support a claim.
