Bronx Jury Awards 60 Million Dollars to Woman in Medical Malpractice Case
Date:7/15/2009

GREAT NECK, N.Y., July 15 /PRNewswire/ -- PARKER WAICHMAN ALONSO LLP, one of the nation's premier plaintiffs' litigation firms today obtained a monumental Sixty Million ($60,000,000) Dollar verdict in a medical malpractice action awarded to a Bronx woman, Allison Hugh against Ferdinand A. Ofodile, M.D., a Queens County Plastic Surgeon.

Alison Hugh went to Dr. Ofodile for a thigh lift procedure. As a result of the procedure, Ms. Hugh sustained significant injury and deformity to the labia of her vagina which is permanent and cannot be surgically corrected.

Dr. Ofodile failed to inform and provide Ms. Hugh with informed consent and failed to inform her of the risks involved in this type of procedure including the risk of vaginal opening and deformity. Dr. Ofodile failed to use proper surgical techniques by leaving too much tension in the skin of her groin area.

The Bronx jury found that Dr. Ofodile failed to appropriately advise Ms. Hugh about the risks of this type of procedure and that Dr. Ofodile deviated from good and accepted medical practices in his surgical technique.

The jury unanimously awarded Ms. Hugh Ten Million ($10,000,000) Dollars in past pain and suffering and Fifty Million ($50,000,000) Dollars in future pain and suffering.

The case was tried by Andres F. Alonso, a partner in the law firm of Parker Waichman Alonso LLP who has consistently obtained large verdicts and multi-million dollar settlements.
