Settlement Secured On Eve Of Trial

May 3, 2017

Patton & Ryan successfully secured a settlement on the eve of trial in January 2017 for a podiatric surgeon accused of providing unnecessary surgical treatment. Plaintiff alleged that her doctor inappropriately provided surgical treatment to repair her calcaneal bone spurs and extensive tendon damage.

Given Plaintiff’s history of prior injury and treatment to the area, Patton & Ryan engaged in extensive research into the Plaintiff’s activities, revealing that she was far more able-bodied than she had previously testified. This aggressive ap­proach led directly to a settlement, protecting our doctor from an unnecessary, complex and time-consuming trial process.

The attorneys of Patton & Ryan always strive to bring the highest level of attention to their medical malpractice cases. Once again, our aggressive approach and attention to detail ensured the best outcome for our client.
