A: Hello. I’m sorry to hear of your pain. Can you provide the exact date of your surgery? Please be mindful that the two year anniversary of your surgery may happen soon, which could trigger a statute of limitations issue. Did the surgery happen in Illinois or in a different state? I would also want to know more about what led you to the conclusion that the surgery caused the loss of your ability to use your hand and whether that loss has affected your ability to perform any work. I’m happy to discuss further. Hope to hear from you soon.
