Patient Requires Hip Replacement after Misdiagnosis of Avascular Necrosis

Our client suffered right groin pain after child birth and her doctors diagnosed the pain as a muscle strain. The doctor in question prescribed the client a muscle relaxer which did not relieve her pain. She went to a different doctor and was diagnosed with avascular necrosis, a disease resulting from the temporary or permanent loss of the blood supply to an area of bone. The doctor in question failed to diagnose the client with avascular necrosis and deprived the client of a substantial opportunity to preserve her native hip joint. The client required a hip replacement. The case settled for $650,000.00.
