Wingate, Russotti, Shapiro, Moses & Halperin, LLP attorney Jason Rubin recently obtained a $1.25 million settlement in a medical malpractice case where a 56-year-old man developed necrotizing fasciitis after undergoing an incision and drainage of perianal abscess at a surgeon’s office. Approximately one week after the procedure, the plaintiff began to experience pain, swelling, and discharge from the incision site, but he waited three days before seeking follow-up care at a hospital emergency room. Jason claimed that the post-operative instructions provided to the plaintiff were inadequate because they did not provide the warning signs and symptoms of infection, nor what to do in the event that he experienced these symptoms. This resulted in a delay in receiving care for the infection, thus worsening his condition.
