Patient Suffers Ankle Fracture After Surgeon Fails to Immobilize Ankle Following Surgery

The client in this case sustained a left ankle fracture that required surgery to correct. However, client’s orthopedic surgeon failed to immobilize client’s ankle after the surgery, causing the client to lose the fracture reduction, requiring a second surgery. Client’s physician also failed to recognize and treat a deep wound infection that had developed in client’s ankle subsequent to her surgery, which led client to contract MRSA. The client required an additional surgery to correct the damage to her ankle. The client retained Rosen Louik & Perry to investigate a MRSA Malpractice claim. This case settled for $350,000.00.
