Doctor Accused of Failure to Diagnose Ankle Fracture– A doctor of internal medicine was accused of failing to diagnose an ankle fracture in a patient, resulting in a permanent injury. His medical malpractice lawsuit settlement was reported to the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR). We successfully defended the IDFPR case on the basis that the doctor ordered an initial x-ray which was negative for a fracture, and the patient’s symptoms were consistent with an ankle sprain. When the patient’s symptoms did not resolve the doctor ordered an MRI and referral to an orthopedic surgeon, which were delayed due to the patient’s health insurance carrier refusing to authorize the test and referral. The IDFPR closed the case with no discipline taken against the doctor.
