Achilles Tendon Rupture from Too Much Medication
Our client, a 55-year-old woman received corticosteroid injections to the area around her left Achilles tendon. The defendant doctor administered three injections in an 18-day period, which was too much in too short a time period. This caused our client’s Achilles tendon to rupture, which required surgery. She suffered post-op wound healing complications that required a skin graft and resulted in scarring.
