Can I sue my doctor for operating on the wrong limb?

There’s no such thing as a slam dunk in law, but this is as close to a slam dunk as I’ve seen. If they operate on the wrong limb, especially cause damages, then of course, go to a lawyer right away. Don’t try to negotiate with the doctors, insurance company, yourself, or pros that are skilled in keeping down damages. Of course, as the operation is a mere cut and you don’t even have a scar, yes, you can sue, but the damages in any malpractice case, any case where taking to trial must be fairly significant or it’s just not worth it.
