A 22 year old teacher from Nyack, New York was awarded $775,000 by a Rockland County jury as compensation for serious and lasting injuries suffered during a 2008 operation. New City, New York Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice attorney Robert Fellows represented the Nyack woman in this case and helped her achieve this outstanding result.
The former Nyack resident, now 22 years old and working as a teacher in the Bronx, underwent surgery to remove a bunion on her left foot back in 2008. Unfortunately, what should have been a simple operation was made unnecessarily complicated by the podiatrist that performed her surgery. Rather than simply removing the bunion, the woman’s doctor also included treatment for Hammer Toe, a condition that she did not have. As a result of the negligent actions on the part of her doctor, she now suffers from arthritis and severe foot pain that prevents her from standing for any extended period of time.
What should have been a routine operation has left this young woman with lasting damages that will require treatment for the rest of her life. However, because she turned to the experienced Medical Malpractice attorneys of Fellows Hymowitz Rice, PC, she was able to receive the appropriate compensation for her injuries.
