Q Is a foreign object that is left in the my body always medical malpractice?
Yes, as I am sure you know a foreign object like a tool or a spunge that is unintentionally left inside your body after surgery in New London, Connecticut or any other town in Southeastern, Connecticut is medical malpractice. Keep in mind, however, that negligence (malpractice) is only one part of a medical malpractice case. You must still prove damages that are caused by the medical malpractice. Many times, a foreign object will be discovered and removed. If the object is removed and you suffer no harm or very little harm, then a medical malpractice claim might not be feasible.
