Case Results

$400,000 • Nerve injury. Negligent Podiatric surgery.

The plaintiff, age 50, underwent ankle arthroscopy and suffered a posterior tibial nerve injury which affects the bottom of the foot causing numbness and cramping.

The plaintiff's original attorneys voluntarily dismissed the case after the defense claimed the injury was a recognized complication of the tourniquet used during surgery.

The plaintiff's attorney Kurt Lloyd investigated and retained a podiatrist specializing in peripheral nerve surgery, and then he re-filed the case alleging that defendant podiatrist applied excessive downward traction using a Kerlix gauze strap on patients ankle and foot which stretched the tibial nerve causing partial nerve permanent damage to the bottom of the foot.
