$450,000 Improper Medication

Our client was a woman who was being treated by a podiatrist for heel spurs (bony growths that form on the back of the feet). She had a previous history of gastrointestinal bleeding but the doctor prescribed Feldene, which, according to the drug’s manufacturer, is contraindicated for patients with such a history. After taking the Feldene, she again developed a gastrointestinal bleed and required surgery to stop it. The case proceeded to trial in Supreme Court, New York County and after jury selection it was settled for $450,000.
