Dallas County Jury Finds in Favor of Family in Medical Malpractice Suit
Date:11/12/2009

FORT WORTH, Texas, Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- A Fort Worth family has been awarded $210,530.73 by a Dallas County jury in a medical negligence case resulting from improper treatment to a newborn child by an orthopedic surgeon.

The lawsuit was filed in Dallas County by the child's mother, Tiffany Martinez, and alleged that Dr. Monica Omey and DFW Orthopedic Associates, P.A. failed to diagnose the hip dysplasia [dislocation] and failed to provide appropriate care for the child. Trial began in Dallas County before Judge King Fifer on October 26. On October 30 the jury reached a verdict in favor of the family and awarded $210,530.73.

Tiffany's daughter was born on April 7, 2005. Her pediatrician referred her to an orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Monica Omey at DFW Orthopedic Associates, P.A., for evaluation and treatment of possible hip dislocation. The jury found that Dr. Omey was negligent in the care provided to the child.

As a result of Dr. Omey's failure to diagnose and treat the hip dislocation, the child required surgery to repair her hip. She spent three months in a cast, several more months in a brace, and may require future surgery. The evidence showed that the child has had a positive recovery with no current limitations in her activities.

"Children should receive the quality of care that they deserve from healthcare providers," said attorney John David Hart of the Law Offices of John David Hart in Fort Worth, who represented the family. "We are pleased that the jury found the physician responsible for failing to provide the appropriate care to the baby."
