Injuries To The Foot Can Be Life-Changing
The human foot is incredibly complex. A full quarter of the body’s bones are housed in the feet. They also contain 30-plus joints and more than 100 ligaments, muscles and tendons.
Considering the intricacy of these structures, it is no wonder that podiatry is a medical specialty requiring extensive skill, training and experience.
Nonetheless, podiatrists do not always make the right decisions. Malpractice can result in permanent damage to your feet and mobility. In extreme cases, you may end up facing amputation or complications that degrade your overall health.
Pursuing Accountability And Justice
At Breslin & Breslin, P.A., we help victims of podiatrist malpractice pursue accountability through the legal system. Our attorneys understand the countless questions, concerns and uncertainties you are likely facing after a specialist has let you down. We can offer legal and practical guidance on the steps ahead.
For more than 80 years, our firm has served as a trusted resource for people like you. Our many million-plus dollar awards stand as a testament to our dedication.
We are familiar with the many ways that podiatric malpractice can come about. Perhaps your doctor failed to properly diagnose or treat your condition. Perhaps he or she failed to explain the risks of certain treatments.
A significant percentage of podiatric surgical errors occur during routine procedures such as:
- Bone spur/bunion correction
- Hammertoe correction
- Joint replacement
- Neuroma removal
- Sprains or fractures
- Plantar fasciitis treatment
Even though these surgeries are relatively minor, they can still lead to far-reaching complications if mishandled. And certain medical conditions – such as diabetes – can intensify the risks associated with these procedures.
Our lawyers will fight to get answers regarding the full extent of the surgical or post-operative error. With the help of leading medical experts in the field, we will work tirelessly to lay the groundwork for a favorable settlement or compelling case at trial.
