What to do about medical malpractice regarding a broken ankle?

Question Details: I broke my ankle 15 months ago. It was a bimalleolar fracture (2 bones) which slightly misaligned the joints in my ankle.The doctor I was referred to tried to TWIST my ankle to fix the problem before casting it up. It has been over a year now and I deal with severe pain on a daily basis due to bone on bone contact within my ankle. There is hardly any cartilidge between my joints in my ankle now. I was told by another doctor that he should have sent me to surgery to put pins in my ankle to properly realign all of the joints and bones. Do I have a medical malpractice case on this doctor?
