Medical malpractice attorneys, all board certified podiatric surgeons, helping victims of podiatry, orthopedic, and related specialty medical negligence and injuries.
The Foot Law website is an informational and medical malpractice resource which is provided and sponsored by trial lawyers who practice in different law firms and who are also foot and ankle specialists (podiatrists). The focus of the Foot Law web site is medical malpractice and personal injury litigation, including those cases which involve the treatment, surgery, or injuries to the foot, ankle, or leg. These physician-attorneys independently represent patients who have suffered injury or medical negligence in all types of medical malpractice cases which include foot, ankle, or leg surgery, or following any type of similar treatment resulting in injury or permanent disability.

Each independent physician-attorney listed on the Foot Law web site is available to represent clients who have suffered any type of Personal Injury including but not limited to the foot, ankle, or leg.

The physician-attorneys who are listed on the Foot Law website include current and formerly practicing board certified podiatrists. The fact that each podiatrist-attorney has practiced podiatric medicine and surgery for 14 or more years allows each client to have the benefit of that individual's legal knowledge and experience as well as that physician's medical and surgical expertise.

Attorneys who are interested in serving as Local Counsel should e-mail any of the podiatrist-attorneys listed herein and include a current Curriculum Vitae, your credentials, and your terms. Plaintiff and defense oriented attorneys are invited to review our Litigation Support Page.

The podiatrist-attorneys listed on this Foot Law web site have independent offices in Jacksonville, Florida, Atlanta, Georgia, Bergen County, New Jersey, Brooklyn and Long Island, New York, and Riverton, Wyoming.

A 2013 Emory University School of Law study found that 95% of patients who sought legal representation for harm suffered as a result of medical treatment were denied help, primarily for economic reasons. As a lawyer may have to invest $50,000 or more of his own money to pursue a case, the study found lawyers would not accept a case- even one they knew they could win- if the damages were less than $250,000! The lawyers at Foot Law do NOT support nor endorse that idea. Our lawyers believe every patient or victim of medical negligence is entitled to representation. Further, our attorneys will never receive an amount from a trial verdict or settlement that is larger than the client receives. We feel that is simply unfair.

Some common areas of malpractice and negligence that we see are:

  • Failure to explain surgeries to patients so there is informed consent.
  • Failure to be honest and truthful to patients.
  • Aggressive surgery on patients with diabetes.
  • Performing unnecessary surgery, for example heel spurs and plantar fasciotomy.
  • Performing surgery on patients with poor blood flow to their feet.
  • Failure to timely and appropriately diagnose complications following surgery.
  • Failure to timely diagnose and treat an infection, including a bone infection called osteomyelitis.
  • Failure to suggest patients seek a 2nd opinion.
  • Altering medical records of patients to protect themselves.
