Failure to Properly Treat Wrist Fracture

A man fell from a horse on an outstretched hand. The Doctor set his wrist improperly. The wound was also not properly cleaned resulting in skin necrosis. Follow-up care was received from two other doctors, also defendants, who failed to detect the improper wrist alignment. He had permanent injury and loss of use of the arm inhibiting his employment as an auto mechanic.
