Describe the theories that could support a lawsuit under these circumstances: A surgeon performs elective surgery on a patient. The patient later complains to the surgeon about the pains resulting from the surgery. The surgeon dismisses his complaints an not credible and eventually withdraws from the case. The patient is then treated by another surgeon, who determines that the had developed complications from the surgery and the the delay in treatment has made the complications worsen. The patient sees an attorney about a possible lawsuit against the frist surgeon. Thank you, CC
