Podiatric Malpractice

Podiatric Malpractice May Lead to Debilitating Consequences

email CONTACT THIS PRACTICE

Podiatrists specialize in diagnosing and treating conditions of the foot, ankle and related structures of the leg. They may also perform surgery.

According to some orthopedic surgeons, however, some podiatrists may overstep their bounds. They may perform complex surgeries involving bones, ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves for which they have not been medically trained.

In severe cases, individuals have had their lower legs amputated. Still others are now bound to a wheelchair because of unsuccessful surgeries.

Complaints of medical malpractice also include infection, persistent pain and misdiagnosis. All of these can lead to debilitating consequences.

If you or a loved one has suffered complications following surgeries or procedures that have made your condition worse rather than better, you may have cause for action.

How Weitz & Luxenberg Helped Me

  • W.P.’s Story

    I write to thank you and all of your lawyers and staff for achieving a substantial settlement recently. There were complicated issues of liability… I am convinced there are very few law firms that could have achieved your result and that would have fought so very hard for Joe. Your lawyers are professional and compassionate.
