Dancer Develops Progressive Arthritis Due to Failure to Diagnose Fracture; Settled for $185,000
Hodes Milman Liebeck represented a dancer in his 20’s who developed painful and progressive arthritis after both a radiologist and orthopedic surgeon failed to diagnose and treat a fracture from an injury. The fracture progressed without treatment resulting in incurable arthritis, which ended the man’s career as a dancer. If the sleeve fracture had been recognized and properly treated, the man would not be facing a lifetime of arthritis and the need for a future knee revision. The attorneys at Hodes Milman Liebeck settled the case for $185,000 on behalf of the client.
