Principal Injury Giving Rise To The Claim
Patient fell from a ladder at work and sustained a fracture.Insured was contacted and evaluated the patient in the ER.Initially, his posterior tibial pulse was noted to be non-palpable but, following closed reduction, this was audible with Doppler evaluation.Once discharged from the hospital, patient was evaluated by insured in his office on 01-29-08.Trauma blisters were noted, but his wounds were intact.His pulses were noted to be present, although weak, with swelling being attributed to a factor relative to the diminution of the pulses.Patient was seen again on 02-03-08.His pain had increased and there was discoloration involving the hallux.At that time, he was referred to the hospital for urgent vascular evaluation.Patient subsequently went on to a BKA.Patient alleges the surgery performed by insured was negligently done, and that insured failed to properly monitor his post-op care.It should be noted that the vascular surgeon clearly indicated that he felt the compromise was caused by the initial trauma, compounded by small vessel disease, and was not reflective of anything done by the insured.
Severity Of Injury
Permanent: Significant - Deafness, loss of limb, loss of eye, loss of one kidney or lung.
