Attorney Gerry Oginski obtains $1.5 million verdict for Westchester podiatric malpractice victim
A Westchester woman was awarded $1.5 million in a case involving improperly performed foot surgery. According to sources, she had a Lapidus bunionectomy performed in 2005 to her right foot. She claimed that during the procedure, too much bone had been removed from the first ray, specifically the medial cuneiform. In addition, she claimed that the first metatarasal was improperly positioned. As a result of improperly performed surgery, she claimed that the forces of her foot while weight-bearing shifted to the second and third metatarsals, causing pain, discomfort and irritation whenever she walked.
