Just weeks before trial in Dutchess County Supreme Court, Fiedler Deutsch, LLP, settled its client’s orthopedic malpractice case for $1 million. Our client had a knee surgery conducted by a prominent Dutchess County orthopedic surgeon. After the surgery, he made significant complaints of pain, swelling, and redness which went ignored by the surgeon as normal post-operative findings. Despite several visits to the emergency room, the doctor did nothing. Finally, our client sought a second opinion in New York City and was immediately diagnosed with a post-operative knee infection that was not being properly treated. He required multiple surgeries to help correct the problem which left him with permanent disabilities.
Our client’s son sent the below message thanking us for our efforts. Nothing makes us feel better that a happy client.
