Man loses his leg as a result of alleged medical malpractice

It takes years of academic training and experience to become a physician in the state of Kentucky. Although physicians and surgeons are widely considered to be some of the most intelligent members of society, they are not exempt from errors. When mistakes or negligence occur in the medical field, the consequences can be absolutely devastating for patients and families. Unfortunately, medical malpractice happens every single day in the United States.

A man in another state recently filed a lawsuit alleging that negligence resulted in the loss of his leg and foot. According to the lawsuit, the man was under the care of the defendant for a diabetic heel ulceration. Allegedly, the man suffered an infection, which spread and gradually worsened.

The lawsuit said the infection got so bad that the plaintiff needed a below-the-knee amputation. The plaintiff claims that his doctors failed to prescribe the correct medication and failed recognize his deteriorating condition. He alleges that their negligence and inadequate care caused him to lose his leg and foot. The man seeks compensatory damages and all just relief.

Despite significant advancements in safety and technology, medical mistakes are made every single day across the country. Tragically, thousands and thousands of families suffer every year at the hands of negligent care. Those in Kentucky who have suffered injury or loss due to medical malpractice could greatly benefit by seeking the services of a knowledgeable and experienced attorney. Damages from a successful lawsuit could provide monetary relief and help families cope with the pain and suffering that typically comes with this unfortunate experience.
