What are my rights if I was given a steroid shot about 3 months ago for bronchitis and now have atrophy where it was administered?

Question Details: I went to my doctor last week and he kept apologizing, saying that it can happen, but that he'd never seen it. Can I file a lawsuit for medical malpractice against their malpractice insurance? It was negligence on the nurse's part.
