Doctor’s Unnecessary Surgical Intervention Leads to Wrist Complications

Several Hundred Thousand Dollar Medical Malpractice Settlement


Our client was involved in a motor vehicle accident and suffered a wrist fracture that should not have warranted surgical intervention. Inexplicably, however, the surgeon in question operated on our client’s fracture prior to casting his wrist.

This surgical intervention led to abnormal swelling and pain that a non-surgical approach would have avoided. Our client eventually developed reflex sympathetic dystrophy – a condition characterized by a group of symptoms including pain, tenderness, swelling, and warmth/coolness of the skin – reducing the functional capabilities of our client’s wrist. Rosen Louik & Perry settled this case for several hundred thousand dollars.
