Patient Sues Mercer County Orthopedic Surgeon Walid Azzo, M.D. for Botched Surgical Procedure

Hartley & O'Brien, PLLC recently filed a lawsuit on behalf of a Virginia resident for medical negligence in the Circuit Court of Mercer County, West Virginia.

After the plaintiff sustained a non-displaced femur fracture, Dr. Azzo placed a nail and screw into the femur. When attempting to place the locking screw, Dr. Azzo missed the target and drilled anterior to the rod and through the femoral cortex of the bone, creating a stress riser. The plaintiff's femur violently fractured shortly thereafter as he stood in his kitchen.

It is alleged that Dr. Azzo failed to advise the plaintiff that he injured his bone during the procedure and failed to keep the patient non-weight bearing while he healed.

This is the sixth case that Hartley & O'Brien, PLLC attorneys have handled against Dr. Azzo for medical negligence.
