hip dysplasia

Jennifer Amdur and Russ Berkowitz have just settled a pediatric medical malpractice case after two weeks of trial. We represented an 8 year old girl against a Connecticut Pediatric Group who failed to timely diagnose our client’s bilateral hip dysplasia from birth through her 5th birthday. By the time the diagnosis was made, one of her hips had already dislocated and the other hip was progressively deteriorating. Our client was forced to undergo multiple surgical procedures and will need hip replacements in the future. She also walks with a permanent limp. The terms of the settlement are confidential.
