On or about February 28, 2014, Sunshine was negligently cared for and treated by a doctor at a local hospital in Bronx, New York. As a result, Sunshine developed podiatric ulcers that lead to the partial amputation of her left big toe on January 9, 2015.
While Sunshine was being treated by the Defendant doctor, he ordered cultures of the infected toe but failed to notify her of the results and treat her with antibiotics. This allowed gangrene to develop in the left great toe which eventually became septic. As a result of the failed medical treatment Sunshine sustained the following permanent injuries and damages:
- Amputation of left great toe (with scarring and deformity)
- Difficulty walking (ambulates with a cane)
After her amputation, Sunshine went to rehab for two weeks. While at her rehab appointment, Sunshine met a gentleman that mentioned Adam Handler – The Case Handler. Immediately after her appointment, she called Adam! The Case Handler team took over and identified the responsible parties that were liable for Sunshine’s preventable and severe injuries. With the legal guidance of our skilled Bronx medical malpractice lawyer, The Case Handler team secured a $165,000.00 settlement for Sunshine!
