Medical malpractice
Suit filed in District Court of Dallas County

    The case was referred to our office by the client’s CPA. An elderly woman with severe Parkinson’s Disease fell at home and broke her wrist. The defendant orthopedic surgeon examined the fracture and had his physician’s assistant apply a plaster of paris cast. The Parkinson’s Disease caused movement within the cast that rubbed or blistered an area of skin concealed by the cast. The blistered area became infected. The client returned to the physician’s office but saw only the P.A. because the doctor was out of town. Two days later she returned again. The defendant’s partner removed the cast but still failed to diagnose or appreciate the severity of the infection. That night the client was admitted to the hospital, and the next day other physicians observed that the infection had worsened, putting the client at risk for amputation of the arm or death. The client was transferred to Parkland Hospital, where massive doses of antibiotics and multiple surgeries saved the client’s arm and her life. Expert witnesses sharply disagreed as to the cause of the infection and whether the defendant or his P. A. committed any violation of the normal standard of care in failing to earlier remove the cast and initiate antibiotic therapy. In this case we associated outside counsel who specialized in medical malpractice infection cases.
