Gary Burger represented the family of a child who had hip dysplasia in a medical malpractice case. This occurred because her physician did not do a hip-click test as he should when the child was in early development. This resulted in this child needing to be in a double-leg cast for a long period of time later in life so that her femoral heads could go into her pelvis and create an open hip socket. This could lead to hip problems for the rest of the child’s life. The case was ultimately settled, but the large amount cannot be disclosed due to confidentiality clauses that were included in the settlement agreement.
